I read a bit of a silly book recently. It suggested that because the whole of humanity fell in Adam’s sin, the whole of humanity also was raised in Jesus’ perfect life, death and resurrection.
Sounds nice: no faith required, everyone ends up in glorified bodies for eternity…surely that’s good news?
Well, no. It might sound good, but it’s wrong.
Here’s why: Jesus wept over Jerusalem.
If everyone ever was going to be fine, why would Jesus weep? Why not laugh, thinking, ‘oh, they’re going to look back at themselves now and realise they got it wrong’…but he didn’t.
There is Good News, but it requires us to take action to spread that news!
