Hmmmm, seems I'm having a problem with that one.
Can any "Christian" explain how a being who's "God" can actually "die" and
still be "God"?
And if the God Jesus didn't actually "die," doesn't that mean man's "sins"
haven't really been forgiven?
..well if that crazy Jesus story were actually true, probably no.
There certainly was no sacrifice. The fiction writers should have had
Jesus stay dead. It would have been a much more convincing tale.
You don't get to come back to life, recycle yourself up to paradise
and then claim a "sacrifice" for the sins of man. Never too late for a
rewrite. Any volunteers ? Should take about 60 minutes.
Prometheus makes for a much better creator god, he created man from clay,
tricked Zeus into give man fire, then paid a horrible price for his trickery,
chained forever to a rock having his liver eaten daily by an eagle. This is a
far worse payment than the Christian god had to pay, a day and a half
vacation in hell that to something that is supposedly eternal would not be
even as long as a human blinking once. Between the two Prometheus certainly
comes across as the far better person, much less “god.” Hell, a cat I
read about recently would make a better “god” than the Christian god, she
gave up her life saving her kittens from a house fire, going into the burning
home not once, not twice, but four times saving her four kittens only to
shortly die from her burns. This was not the only time something like this
has happened, which to me shows far more love of another than the Christian
god/Jesus shows at any time in the bible.
Or my dog, Midnight, a small black and white terrier that attacked a much
larger dog that had broken its chain and attacked my sister. Midnight did not
survive, but my sister got away unharmed. Midnight was always a happy little
dog, more of a clown than anything else, but he was also a very loyal dog to
his family. I think if I had to belong to a church, I can’t think of a
better one than the Church of Midnight. Praise Midnight, greater love has no
dog than to give up its one life to protect its owners baby sister.
