"..But the heart of Christianity is Good News. It comes not as a task for us to do, a mission for us to accomplish, a game plan for us to follow with the help of life coaches, but as a report that someone else has already fulfilled, accomplished, followed and achieved everything for us. Good advice may help us in daily direction, the Good News concerning Jesus Christ saves us from sin's guilt and tyranny over our lives and the fear of death. It is Good News because it does not depend on us. It is about God and his faithfulness to his own purposes and promises."
