What Good News?

What good news? © Copyright 2004 Mojoey

I pass this kind of Church all the time in the poorer parts of Los Angeles and Long Beach. They look so universally depressing it is hard to imagine there is anything "good news" about them. This one certainly does not invite visitors. I wonder if it actually a church or maybe just a billboard.

What good news? Have you read the Bible? Try Romans...

While this is indeed a drab presentation, it could bring to mind any number of good things if one simply chooses to think of them instead. Heard any good news lately?

In Corinthians Paul defined the gospel of Jesus Christ as "good news". The good news or gospel is all over the New Testament. The root of the English word is most likely German from gut spiel - literally good words or the Anglo-Saxon (also a Germanic language) - god spel - literally meaning good news.
