What Is 'the Gospel of Jesus Christ'?

I ask because I got some snail-mail saying we needed to direct people to "My Hope America with Billy Graham" (after a little word from ad-fly's sponsors ) to help share 'the Gospel of Jesus Christ'---which started me thinking 'what for?' I mean, I know "the old story, where our Savior came in glory," but how does that Gospel help us today? ... maybe that's a better question: What Use Is the Gospel of Jesus Christ Today? Here-&-Now, Where G*d Is? This makes it sound like Jesus Christ is nothing but a distraction, to get our minds off of our little problems and onto the Kingdom of G*d. That's fine, unless 'solving our little problems' IS 'the Kingdom of G*d'! The story that encapsulates the true Gospel to me? David vs. Goliath! in which Christ is (as always now) whispering to the Holy Spirit in each of us (each of us being David), and Goliath is the 'world that gets in the way.' You'll remember that David didn't "pray to G*d and then ignore 'the problem' (Goliath) and let destruction take him"; NO! he picked up the stones, slung one at Goliath's head (killing him), took Goliath's sword from him, and beheaded him! He praised G*d for the strength & direction to do so, but G*d didn't do anything! That's 'The Gospel'---that G*d gives people the strength to do what needs to be done. And 'the Gospel of Jesus Christ'? that G*d's plan for you is not something you will ever know, but you know that His plan for you is for the good of His kingdom (not yours)

The Gospel of Jesus Christ....Is the way to be forgiven for our sins. Because of what Jesus Christ did for us on the cross. The way to be able to enter the Kingdom of God and have everlasting life. You stated With david God did not do anything....God gave him the strength to defeat Goliath. God directed that stone to hit the right spot so Goliath would die... Gods plan for us is to have everlasting life with Him.....

Lemme get this straight: God--an 'omnipresent' entity (meaning He's 'in all places at all times') CANNOT BE WITH US unless we believe He 'begat only one son to almost die for us'? And how many Christians do you know who are over 1000 years old (because they believe on the only begotten Son of God)?

@dlr297 No it is not! Well, yes it is; but NOT IN THE BIBLE. The Bible is JUST WORDS; no court in the world will take that as "evidence"---it's not even "a signed statement!" What I asked (in the reply above) was a yes-or-no question, but (as Jesus did) you answered with something other-than a yes or a no. And 'hell' is not eternal. Those "unsaved" will be in hell and then God will turn it over into the lake of fire where they will be UNTIL THEY ALL BURN OUT. The only "hellfire" the Bible talks about is what GOD will rain down on the resurrected unsaved when they try to take over the New Jerusalem. Funny how atheists always seem to know the Holy Bible better than most 'Bible-thumper' Christians.
A Pew poll shows that non-believers have a decent grasp of dogma

@mythociate ... The courts here do not matter one way or another. All the Evidence one needs is in the Heart when you let God in... I have the right to answer a question any way i wish to...Not the way you want me to. Yes or No is so boring.... Yes the Holy Bible is words.....The words of God.... The lake of fire, is the final hell, the place of eternal punishment for all unrepentant rebels, both angelic and human .It is described as a place of burning sulfur, and those in it experience eternal, unspeakable agony of an unrelenting nature. The problem with Atheists is they may know the words...But they have no Understanding of them.
