That's what puzzles me about Christians. They talk about Jesus's crucifiction as if it's a good, beautiful thing, and God was so kind to let it happen. Yet, God's supposed to have the ability to do anything. Supposedly, he could have forgiven humanity for its sins without that happening. So basically, God is a sadist, which is the opposite of merciful.
Not only that but we use the object that he was nailed to (the cross) as a symbol of good.
The penalty for sin can only be covered by a blood sacrifice. The Israelites were required to offer animal sacrifices to cover their sins [no PETA back then] and the animal was required to be spotless. Jesus blood was shed to cover the sins of all people who accept Him as their savior as He was the only man ever to live a sinless life. Sin and God cannot coexist and He only offers forgiveness to those who sins are covered by the blood of Jesus. This is a brief and incomplete explanation. You speak of something that you know little to nothing about in a careless manner and should hope that God is merciful.
But doesn't that make your god disgusting? Good people don't require blood sacrifices. Only narcissistic sociopaths do that. If your god is all powerful, he can forgive people without being a jerk. If he were merciful or forgiving, he would.
It was Jesus that came to earth to do just that die on the cross you imagine that kind of love someone dying for you
It's sick. If Jesus had a good head on his shoulders, he would have protested against God. He would have stood up against that kind of insanity and declared it as wrong.
You speak of something that you have absolutely no understanding and are probably not capable of grasping.
you really are special.
your welcome but it wasn't meant as a compliment.lol
Sounds like a plan that worked. He sent His Son from heaven, His Son obeyed but didn't have to, God gave the Son power to kill us all, but the Son chose to forgive us, in turn we killed the Son, So God brought Him back Home to heaven, Now we decide if we want the Son as our Lord, because God gave the Son all the power to condemn us or forgive us.
Are you really this stupid or are you just trying to incite some sort of anger on here?
What do you mean. It is a simple question. Give an answer, Don't redirect with a question.
I am tired of Qs that aren't about knowledge but are about attacking someone else's faith or making fun of something that is personal and important to others. It's about nothing but hate. You'll get over it, Corbin.,
What do you know about it? And they are in a building where people choose to go...not on a forum that belongs to all of us. I LOVE the way people attack religion and then act as if their attacks on it without provocation are somehow "enlightened" or all right. You are snarky, disrespectful, and It's shameful that a grown man can be so silly and foolish or glean so much joy from making fun of people who haven't done a thing to you. Go argue with the wall....
And I don't see any religious folks on here stinking up this forum. The only hate and intolerant junk I see on here right now is people like you.
God made his son Jesus sacrifice himself because not only was God a total sadist, but Jesus was an insatiable masochist! Jesus got crucified and it was the greatest thrill of his life. Unless I'm misinterpreting the Bible.
I do not think that the German fuhrer had as many killed in his name as God has.
