Phil Robertson Just Said THIS About the FUTILITY Of Faith If...

As we approach Good Friday and Resurrection Sunday, "Duck Dynasty" patriarch Phil Robertson wrote on the Duck Commander blog this morning about what would make our faith in Christ futile.

He quoted 1 Corinthians 15:16-20, which says, "For if the dead are not raised, then Christ has not been raised either. And if Christ has not been raised, your faith is futile; you are still in your sins. Then those also who have fallen asleep in Christ are lost. If only for this life we have hope in Christ, we are of all people most to be pitied. But Christ has indeed been raised from the dead, the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep."

Phil pointed out that having Christ remove our sins on the cross was nice, but if there was no resurrection from the dead, then our souls would be done for once we died. If that were the case, Phil admitted what he'd be spending (a lot) of his time doing: duck hunting. He'd live out the woods doing whatever he wanted.

And that, he said, would lead him to neglect his family, because without the assured hope of eternal life with Christ, his focus would only be on the here-and-now and on himself.

Phil concluded with a prayer, saying, "Thanks, Father, for the glorious resurrection of Your Son and for the promised resurrection of all those whose faith is in Him! I live my life as a reflection of my faith in that fact. Amen."
