All of us are sinners and each time we sin, we go against God. God created us to have an intimate relationship with Him but sin divides and shoves us away from God. There is literally no way we can get back to God on our own, no way for us to remove our sins from ourselves alone. The Bible tells us that the punishment of sin is death but God didn't want to send us all to Hell so He sent His perfect Son Jesus to Earth to suffer in the body of a human being and die for us on the cross. In this way, Jesus paid for all of our sins and took upon Him the sins of the world so that we might be saved when we believe in Him. Then God raised Jesus from the dead, thus showing that the sacrifice was accepted and so we can right our relationship with God and have our sins forgiven when we repent of them and put our trust in Jesus.

Lying flat refers to a defeatist lifestyle in Chin, where people stop working, desiring material acquisition, and tap out of any social life ā€“ sometimes for good. By lying flat, young people are participating in a kind of non-cooperation movement, rather than surrendering themselves to China's oppressive work culture where they see little hope of social mobility.

A Greek word meaning "Good News" it is often used in the New Testament of the Christian Bible to refer to news of the savior, even Jesus Christ.

This word has been the source of some confusion to date, particularly from Paul's use of it in Galatians 1:6-8 KJV -

"I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel: Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ. But though we or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed."

Jesus here is not talking about the gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. These had not been written at the time of Galatians. He is condemning gospels which are not of Jesus Christ. If it is about Jesus Christ and how he is the savior, he's not condemning it.
Don't preach other false doctrines (gospels) which say cows or aliens will redeem us, lest you be accursed.
