We Need Good News, Not Good Advice

Even the ordinary wisdom of the world can be useful.  The problem comes when we forget that we are fallen children of Adam and that we cannot fix our deepest moral crisis.  For that, we need Good News, not good advice.  We need God’s unfailing promises, not more purposes and programs.  Suzie Ormand’s financial advice and Jake’s home gym can help me improve my life, but nothing they say can transfer me from death to life.
