God Loves All Sinners
The Gospel is the Good News. And the Good News is that Christ died for our sins. He has redeemed us so that we can have access to Heaven. No longer will our souls remain in the land of the dead.....a place which the Jews called "Sheol." Christ has conquered death, so that we no longer have to fear death. There is a resurrection for us because Christ came down and died for us.
The Good News is God's love for us. God loved us so much that He gave His only Begotten Son that those who believe in Him will not perish (John 3:16). God loves all sinners. He loved us even when we sinned just as St. Paul stated:
Romans 5:6-8 You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly. Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous person, though for a good person someone might possibly dare to die. But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
