Making The Gospel Good News Again

Alvin Reid, who holds the Bailey Smith Chair of Evangelism at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary, says "There is a new spirit blowing."

But God is stirring many with the notion that a "little better effort" is somewhat like changing the curtains in a house that has foundation problems. You may have nice curtains in the short run, but in the long run they won’t look too good on collapsed walls.

We need to 'get back to the basics' - in other words, let God's Word rule our lives in every aspect. Then go about letting people know that The Gospel certainly IS GOOD NEWS!
