The organizing focus of Good News Club’s lesson materials is a scripted version of the so- called “Wordless Book.” All five color-coded concepts relate to sin Gold represents Heaven, a place where sin “can never be.”  Black represents original sin and the punishment — death — that God “must” impose on it.  Red represents the Christ’s blood, which God required as payment for sin White represents Christ’s righteousness imputed to people who follow the “ABCs” of salvation: Admit” that they are “sinners” who cannot save themselves, Believe” that Jesus died to take the punishment for their sin, and Choose” to receive Jesus as Savior, “knowing He will forgive your sins and make you His child.” Green “helps the newly-saved child to understand how to deal with his sin by confessing it to God, and how he can begin to grow in his new life as God’s child.”  See CEF’s “Wordless Book” Bookmark PDF; Wordless Book Teaching Guide. Good News Club breaks up each Bible story into multiple sections, in between each of which at least one color-coded theme of the Wordless Book is inserted.  Bible stories that have nothing to do with this gospel formula are modified to incorporate these themes.  (See examples from the “Curriculum” section of this website).
