This quote from Paul Martin really speaks to whether we believe the Gospel in and of itself is “good news”:

When we, for whatever reason, think that the gospel in itself isn’t attractive, we have lost sight of our faith. Using entertainment to dress up our faith or baiting outreach with gimmicks shows an individual loss of the need for the good news.

Can the Gospel of Jesus Christ stand by itself? Or do we need to “dress” it up?
