SHOUTING THE GOOD NEWS?


It’s amazing how many people try to share the good news with a sense of rage and hatred.


Example: ranting and raving about a particular social ill, polarizing people, and focusing more on judgment and God’s wrath than on the hope that Christ offers.


People rant about rock music, dancing, gambling, long hair and tattoos, drinking and smoking, and whatever. They basically tell people that God’s gonna get’em for that, because good Christians like us uptight people are God’s chosen. So repent and be like us, you heathen scum!


Are there things in our society that displease God? Yes. Is there rampant sin? Yes. Will there be a judgment at which God will punish sin? Absolutely.


But let me tell you something – judgment is not the theme of the gospel, nor of the Bible. The theme of the good news is rescue. The theme of the good news is that Jesus has rescued us from the judgment and wrath of God, and that rescue is available to anybody who looks to Christ, regardless of who they are, what they’ve done, what their race, what their gender, whatever!
