What is the Gospel?
If the Gospel is rightly described as Good News, we must ask what the news is about. The answer Jesus gives is that it is “the good news of the kingdom of God” (Luke 4:43; Acts 8:12). The good news of the Gospel is that Jesus Christ is King of kings and Lord of lords, and that He is building His kingdom of righteousness among us.
Gnosticism & Paganism
Alone among world religions, biblical Christianity acknowledges God as a being totally distinct from His created order. Pagan beliefs and gnostic ideologies seek ways for man to become as God, while Christianity is clear that the chief end of man is to love and glorify God as His image-bearer.
