The Gospel is actually the good news that God came as Jesus to save us from ourselves (and our sin)..,
restore our humanity, and bring in the new community of God's forever kingdom.
This kingdom is wide open to anyone who wants to follow Jesus.
When you talk about the issues you address--sexuality, etc.--you are actually talking about God's law:
HIS description for what it means to live as a truly human being.
The purpose of the law is to show us how to live. Is also serves as measure to expose our rebellion and subsequent broken behavior. On the other hand, the Gospel is the story of that God has done to rescue us from our rebellion and behavior.
