What would the world be like if God had not sent a Savior?
On Nov. 29 6 a.m. MST, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints will be launching their 2015 Christmas campaign, A Savior Is Born. Leading up to it, they have released several teaser videos on the Mormon.org Facebook page begging the question, “Why do we need a Savior?”
LDS church leaders are urging members to share content from the campaign throughout the Christmas season.
Several resources will be available to view and share online, including videos telling of the Savior’s birth, an animated video on what the world would be like without a Savior, an advent calendar that tells the story of Jesus’ birth from the New Testament, inspirational memes and print and share posters, according to an article from the Church News.
Along with the LDS church’s online presence, they will also be displaying images and advertisements in New York City’s Time Square, according to Church News.
Last year, the #ShareTheGift campaign video received over 33.8 million views.
“We live in a world where the power and influence of God in our daily lives are downplayed and dismissed and where the need for a Savior is ignored and even mocked,” says Elder Dallin H. Oaks of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles in the December 2015 issue of the Ensign. “For those who are devoted to the Lord Jesus Christ, there has never been a greater need for us to profess our faith in our Savior, privately and publicly.”
