To the Editor:

We have been bombarded with bad news. Several years ago, Ann Murray come out with a song entitled "A Little Good News Today." The song suggested how nice it would be to hear good things on the news instead of all the bad news we hear today.

If people listen to bad news 24 hours a day, pretty soon they start to feel bad themselves. Most people are wanting some good news, but where are they looking? The gospel of Christ is called the good news. It doesn't give false hope.

The doctrine of Christ is for everyone. Jesus said, He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved, but he that believeth not shall be damned (Mark 16:16). Jesus, also said, He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him, the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day.

Could Jesus be any more plain? It will determine our eternal destiny, man will be judged by the words of Jesus (John 12:48).

God said concerning His Son Jesus, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased, hear ye him (Matthew 17:5). The most beautiful words in all the bible were spoken by King Jesus (Matthew 11:28-30). Come unto me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke up on you, and learn of me, for I am meek and lowly in heart, and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.

The best thing for us to do is take the good news that never changes. With the good news of the gospel of Christ all bad news is bearable. The Apostle Paul said: For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, and neither should we (Romans 1:16).
