Is it egotistical to think that a God would die for you?

Yes many so-called "christians" are wacko, I was pressured off a "christian" forum only recently for upsetting them; they didn't ban me outright but the snooty mods kept closing some of my threads and deleting some of my posts so I walked.
That happens to me in Atheist forums too..Smile

The more fundamental a site, the more they will ban anyone who does not have his head up their God's ass.

Catholics are bad for this as well as the right wing protestant camps. I have a list of those in my banned me file. Two sites banned me before I even had a chance to post, just because of my avatar name.

I am surprised that an atheist site gave you any grief.

Why Jesus, of course.
I'll quote him for you since you probably missed it:
Quote:
My food is to do the will of him who sent me and to finish his work. (John 4:34)
There's more, if you need it.

@count markovalley,
all that is pure and sacred it is for its own merits, Christians have nothing to do with it. Civilization existed long before Christianity and were not beasts at all.

@momoends,
It makes me wonder why humans would believe in a god that shows up centuries after man evolved from primates.

It's a clever and honest question but most ibelievers think everything started six thousand years ago. So no evolution and science has everything wrong. I've even been told that God sped up the light from distant galaxies so we could see them, then reset the speed of light to its current setting. Essentially there is no lengthy a believer will go to, to invent nonsense so it doesn't disrupt their belief. Although there is mounds of evidence that prove the earth is older than six thousand years and the human genome is too diverse to have obscured in six thousand years. But once again you invoke the magician God to snap his fingers to give the illusion that things required millions of years.

Scientists have aged this planet at 4.6 billion years.

Hmm- Is it egotistical to think that a God would die for you?
How about is it humbling to think that a God would die for you?
Each seems to say something different about the person doing the thinking.
I know some egotistical people- holier than thou types and I know some humble caring people.

If he continues his life after his so-called death, that's called sleep, not death.

@cicerone imposter,
I think the difference would lie somewhere in the realm of cognitive existence. Jesus was supposedly not alive for 3 days, and after three days he was ressurected.
He did however, echo your sentiments on a couple of occasions where he raised Lazarus and the daughter of Jairus, when he spoke of them as sleeping.

@Smileyrius,
Being dead for three days means brain function is dead.

@cicerone imposter,
In the Lazarus story, he had been dead for four days and there was already the stench of putrification (John 11:39) . Jesus raised a zombie.

Likely an intelligent person who laughs at the idea that a God can die.

Sigh.

Have you forgotten that Jesus walked with the dinosaurs.

It must be true as the flat earthers say it is. Kidding.
