Is the Gospel an idea, culture, lifestyle or God in Jesus the Christ?

I am interested in what your thoughts are concerning this article.

http://thegospelcoalition.org/blogs/trevinwax/2012/06/26/the-idea-of-evangelism-makes-me-uncomfortable/

Here are some questions that I have.

  1. Did you become a Christian through argumentation or love?
  2. Did Jesus call us to make disciples or decisions?
  3. What is the difference in proclaiming something in love and proclaiming something to win?
  4. Trevin Wax says… “We don’t proselytize. We evangelize. Proselytism is about getting someone to change from one religion to another. Evangelism is proclaiming the evangel – the gospel. It’s an announcement about the way the world is. Then we call people to bring their lives in line with that reality.”
    1. What does this mean “Evangelism is proclaiming- the gospel.”
    2. Is proclaiming only a polemic act?
    3. Is the Gospel and idea, culture, lifestyle or God in Jesus the Christ?
    4. Is the Gospel “an announcement about the way the world is.”?
