Joe, the Gospel is the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ. I think, however, that you are dismissing some scriptural elements in your argument. A proper understanding of the Gospel will lead one to repentance, asking for forgiveness is implicit in repentance. The thirty eighth verse of the Acts 2 is quite clear that you must repent and be baptised in the name of Jesus for the remission of sins. "relax and receive it" isn't an idea that meshes well with scripture. It sounds as though someone's viewpoints have raised an unneeded ire in you, my friend. We're saved by grace through faith. This faith will manifest itself in our works. Once we are saved we are to live a holy life. We're told to walk in the Spirit, we're told to pray without ceasing, we're told to study to show ourselves approved, we're told to obey every ordinance, we're told to try the spirits, we're told to stand fast and to make sure to not be entangled again with the yoke of bondage. All of these require action. So the sedentary Christianity you espouse is no Christianity at all. If God intended us to take a vacation after salvation, he would have raptured us right there and then. These aren't contradictions of terms, but all integral in the work of salvation. It's also worth noting that within the book of Acts, every instance of the indwelling of the Spirit of God was accompanied by tongues.
