‘The devil hath the power to assume a pleasing shape.’William Shakespeare, Hamlet
As I have mused about this question that we are focusing on, I believe that it will aid the reader if they know what meaning I am assuming with certain terms, really only one, the ‘gospel’. After looking and reading some variety of sources and then checking all 99 references in the NASB 1995 (New Testament only), my definition of the gospel is, Jesus. Now what I mean by this is, I believe that the relational aspect of this message / truth is bound up essentially in the call to relate (if you will) directly with/to the Christ. How this takes place is as unique as each individual person.
