I’m a Christian. Now if I ask “what is the good news of Jesus” I would expect answers along the lines of: God loves you enough to die for you, your sins can be wiped clean by the blood of Jesus, your eternal salvation is guaranteed, you can have a personal relationship with God etc.
But in what way is any of this good news to my non believing neighbor? If they don’t believe in(or at least think about) a God who will judge them when they die, if they feel more or less happy with their life and consider themselves a reasonably good person, what is the good news I have for them?
It seems to me I have to make them unhappy and miserable first before being able to give them any good news!
I’d be interested in anyone else’s thoughts on this.
