In response to the original post question….I would say it is not egotistical to think that a God would die for you, even the Christian God of the bible…no …rather I think that it would be very wise if you let a God die for you.
The problem for the atheists though is that they need to acknowledge a God exists first to enable him to die for them.
They already freely admit that they are fully responsible for all atrocities that have ever happened throughout history having rejected all Gods even the Christian God of the bible, so if there is a God haven’t they already been sentenced …..if a God judges between good and evil?
If there is a devil who rejects God even the Christian God of the bible then he must be rolling around the floor laughing his head off at them…..
I think it is wise therefore to be more open minded……rather than stay stuck in HALF possibility reasonings waiting for definitive proof of deeper questions….one could be waiting for an awful long time….
I think other questions are….why would a God want or need to die for you?
