Restoring the “Good” in Good News

Related image

Identifying as “Christian” makes us complicit in the debacles committed by other Christians in the world yesterday, today, and forever. Object to it all you want but our track record is entwined with everyone else who identifies as Christian. Sure, we’ve contributed mountains of good to the world but we’ve also dumped a lot of crap on it! And since the latter out-smells the former, that’s what people think of when we treat them like projects and say with a smile, “Would you like to hear the Good News?”

We’ve got a lot of work to do to re-earn their trust.

  1. To think, talk, and act like Jesus actually is Lord. To “do justly, love mercy, and walk humbly with God.” We can’t very well tell people the news is good unless we’re partaking of and exuding its goodness ourselves.
