This magazine’s passion is to spread the Creator’s message about the gospel. What is the gospel? “Good news.” And good news begins with bad news.
The Bad News
includes the bad news that the first man,
Adam, rebelled against God’s command,
separating us from God and bringing
death and suffering into the world.
Adam’s descendants (all of us) are sinful
from conception (Psalm 51:5), and we
have entered into Adam’s rebellion—sin.
So we can’t live with a holy God but are
separated from Him. The Bible says, “
have sinned, and fall short of the glory
of God” (Romans 3:23), and so all are
subject to “
everlasting destruction from
the presence of the Lord and from the
glory of His power” (2 Thessalonians 1:9).
The Good News
But the good news
is that God has done something about
this problem. “
God so loved the world
that He gave His only begotten Son, that
whoever believes in Him should not perish
but have everlasting life” (John 3:16).
Jesus Christ the Creator, though totally sinless, suffered sin’s penalty on our behalf. He suffered death and separation from God, His Father, to satisfy the righteous demands of God’s holiness and justice. Jesus was the perfect sacrifice; He died on a cross. But on the third day He rose again, conquering death, so that all who repent of their sin and trust Him rather than their own merit can come back to God and live with Him for eternity.
He who believes in Him
is not condemned; but he who does not
believe is condemned already” (John 3:18). What a wonderful salvation in
Christ, our Creator and our Savior!
