God’s Hall of Fame More Important to Gary Carter
Below is a message on the home page of Hall of Famer Catcher Gary Carter’s personal site:
The Gary Carter Foundation is a Public 501(c)3 Charity.
“The Baseball Hall of Fame is something every player dreams about, but being a member of God’s Hall of Fame is the greatest achievement of all. God offers each of us the gift of eternal life through Jesus Christ. When we accept God’s gift of salvation, our name is written in The Book of Life, guaranteeing us a place in heaven forever.”
“I made that decision during spring training in 1973, and prayed asking Jesus to come into my heart as Lord and Savior. It was then that I first realized that when Jesus died on the cross, he died for me and paid for my sins. Accepting his payment was all I needed to do. I couldn’t earn my way into heaven. You can become a member of God’s Hall of Fame too, by making the same decision today.”
