I see your view of Christians but if they do become Christ-like, they would denounce their own religion as it is based on human sacrifice and the notion that it is somehow just to punish the innocent instead of the guilty.
If Jesus returned, Christian is the last label he would take.
You are right that in Christianity the penalty for sin is death and Jesus, being a righteous man, took that penalty for the sins of the guilty. In Christianity that’s called love. “Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.”
The best part came when death couldn’t hold him because of his righteousness and he defeated death’s hold for all mankind. But hey, if you’d rather face justice for your sins than to accept his gift of forgiveness, that’s your choice and no one has the right to stand in your way.
Indeed. As scriptures say, we are all responsible for our own sins.
Strange that you did not cheery pick those scriptures but do with the immoral ones.
I like that quote but you do not seem to recognize that the enemy that Jesus sacrificed his life to was his own father who demanded it as a ransom. That is insane. Right?
It was God’s plan from the beginning to have Adam and Eve eat the forbidden fruit. This can be demonstrated by the fact that the bible says that Jesus “was crucified from the foundations of the Earth,” that is to say, God planned to crucify Jesus as atonement for sin before he even created human beings or God damned sin.
1Peter 1:20 0 He was chosen before the creation of the world, but was revealed in these last times for your sake.
This indicates that Jesus had no choice.
If God had not intended humans to sin from the beginning, why did he build into the Creation this “solution” for sin? Why create a solution for a problem you do not anticipate?
God knew that the moment he said “don’t eat from that tree,” the die was cast. The eating was inevitable. Eve was merely following the plan.
This then begs the question.
What kind of God would plan and execute the murder of his own son when there was absolutely no need to?
Only an insane God. That’s who.
The cornerstone of Christianity is human sacrifice, thus showing it‘s immorality.
One of Christianity’s highest form of immorality is what they have done to women.
They have denied them equality and subjugated them to men.
In reality, if God did demand such a barbaric sacrifice, he would be sinning.
He would know that barbaric human sacrifice is immoral.
You do too. Right?
Those with good morals will know that no noble and gracious God would demand the sacrifice of a so called son just to prove it’s benevolence.
When you die, Satan will ask you; How was your ticket to heaven purchased? With innocent blood?
When you say yes, you become his.
