  • Of course..if you can create the universe from scratch you can do virtually anything.
  • Umm, in order for us to realize all his teachings and his plans for us, he had to send his son here on earth for us to learn from. Some of us learned nothing and that's why we have so much crime in the world.
  • Yes, but then we would be no different than slaves. God doesn't want men to follow Him because He makes them, he wants it to be our choice. That is the whole purpose in giving men free will.
  • if he wanted to save us would we be killing each other in war over god/gods
  • Why blame God for what the people did?God prefers obediance to sacrifice. It's people that have need of sacrifice.
  • Apparently not. Assuming the story is true, that is.
  • Probably. But it wouldn't have the drama. And we won't even know we were saved.
  • maybe be it was a lesson on life as there are stages in ones life where we all make sacrifices ,some hurt, and others may help it is all a part of life,+4
  • Once again, more questions that can't be answered, showing the fallacy that is god and religion.
  • Of course.....evidently he wanted an unfortunate shock factor.
  • God is not a respecter of persons. If Jesus had not been sacrificed, The Father would have had to send all of us to hell. How could He be just in saving some but not all? If He allowed all sinners into heaven, then heaven would become another hell. God cannot endure sin. For the wages of sin is death. Without the shedding of blood, there can be no forgiveness of sin. God sent His Son to die in our place. Jesus created a path back to the Father. Now, whoever knows Jesus can repent of her/his sin and be saved by the blood of The Perfect Lamb. Those who do not repent will not saved. God created a plan that was merciful as well as just. I hope that helps answer what is an excellent question. +5
  • From what I understand of the Bible, He didn't sacrifice Jesus. Jesus assumed the task of being crucified to demonstrate the illusion of death. The only thing Jesus came to save us from was our own ignorance.
  • We have always been saved, God doesn't want for anything and he didn't sacrifice anyone.
  • No, the ultimate sacrifice was necessary to cover so much sin. AND, you have to ask for that forgiveness through Jesus, since He was the sacrifice. It's symbolic of your acknowledgment of His sacrifice and the magnitude of it to come to God through the Son. Can you imagine letting your son (who is part of you!)die painfully even though you could easily save him? That's an amazing sacrifice.
  • GOD is all powerful and all knowing. In His wisdom He knows that without sacrifice there is no true atonement for sin.
  • Someone had to pay the piper. The fact that Jesus died for all of our sins illustrates that while God had to acknowledge how how far off the path we had stumbled (again), he was willing to forgive us. One must also understand that Jesus did this of his own free will. I can only imagine how much that messed with his head - having to literally have the weight of the world on his shoulders. But he did it - and we were all forgiven. Unfortunately, no one seems to understand the depth of the sacrifice made, nor what it truly meant for us. This topic is debated to this day and probably always will be.
  • absolutely !!! pity the christian faith doesnt recognize this sort of over looked point.......
  • It is important to know as to WHAT we are saved FROM>>> We all suffer from eventually having to die... and dying is not part of God's plan. We brought it on ourselves, via Adam and Eve, They had no prospect of death...UNTIL THEY DISOBEYED... (Genesis 2:16-17) And Jehovah God also laid this command upon the man: “From every tree of the garden you may eat to satisfaction. 17 But as for the tree of the knowledge of good and bad you must not eat from it, for in the day you eat from it you will positively die.” Before this, they would never have died... So Adam cost us death, which is what we suffer because of imperfection...so death equates with sin... So to remove death / sin, it was necessary for a price, a ransom, to be paid. So a loving God supplied his own son, Jesus, to BE that sacrifice... Jesus paid the price...to have death removed to have sin removed...from those who are truly obedient... We will not benefit until after Armageddon, once wickedness is removed. (Psalm 37:29) The righteous themselves will possess the earth, And they will reside forever upon it. (Psalm 37:34) Hope in Jehovah and keep his way, And he will exalt you to take possession of the earth. When the wicked ones are cut off, you will see [it]. And this will fulfill... (Revelation 21:4) And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.”
  • Question everything you're been told about religion.
  • Interesting question. In my opinion no. Why would Christ Jesus who is God do anything that is not the ultimate, most deliberate, sovereign, and perfect course of action? I think God demonstrated how much He loves us by giving us His only son. "For the wages of sin is death..."(Romans 6:23) It would only make sense that Christ sacrifice His life for us to live.
  • well god,(as you may be realizing) is a drama queen. that funky bitch needs to dramatize every major event. no actually, there is no god. dont believe the primitives.
  • The problem with not being a fantasy Being is that He has to balance real forces, like infinite Justice and infinite Mercy. I don't know if there was another solution to that paradox, but apparently Jesus supplied the best solution possible under the circumstances.
  • Ever read the Old Testament? In a nutshell that's what it's about. God trying to save us from evil and death and sin. But man consistantly denied His direction. Even though one generation would do good the next would go astray and do detestable things in the eyes of the Lord. So, He gave us a savior. Jesus Christ. Now we all have a shining light to guide us in a world of darkness.
