I think the message of the Gospel was not, you’re not holy enough to be in Gods presence but if you work out this plan I have there is a small possibility you can stand before God and not be vaporized. If you don't work the plan, well, then there is not even that small possibility.
I think the Gospel is that God planned from before time to present a way that we could comprehend the one real truth about Him, He loves us and wants to have an intimate relationship with us and all we have to do is become aware of that truth and we will be transformed. It is not about what we do, it is about what He has already done for us and in us.
