I do not automatically expect the world to forgive me for any of my shortcomings. Forgiveness should be a free will prerogative and not be coerced by a guilt trip. I do not need to send an only begotten son to die in the likeness of sinful flesh to forgive the world of any wrongs. I forgive the world, just live life to the best of your ability, grace and love will cover the rest.

In the context of the whole story, I've never understood where the quid pro quo thing (his death for our screw-ups) came from.

I thought it was more like, 'don't be so frigg'n attached to the stuff of this life. You can do better'.

@FBM,
Matthew 11
19 The Son of man [Jesus] came eating and drinking, and they say, Behold a man gluttonous, and a winebibber, a friend of publicans and sinners. But wisdom is justified of her children.

2 Corinthians
18 But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord.

@TheCobbler,
Religions are powerful tools for control of the masses. Look at all the money they collect from their sheep. And it's tax free!

@TheCobbler,
Religion----You are describing what humans have come up with, a thing, a 'way' to be. Haven't humans always messed things up?
Jesus---God in Person. Can you find anything wrong with Him? Go to your history books. Over 500 people saw Him alive after his death on the cross.
People confuse man-made "religion" with God. Our so called righteousness "makes Him sick" He says in His Word.
To know Jesus, you must know Him in Spirit & in Truth. He is The Way to Heaven. The only Way. Please consider this.
Get a Bible, open your heart & ask Him to show you Himself. He is real. Religion is not.
Accept The Gift of Eternal Life made possible only through Jesus' death sacrifice on the cross.
God is HOLY HOLY HOLY. We are not. We needed a Saviour. Jesus in His love satisfied that debt for us. But like any gift, it is not yours till your accept it.
This life is hard. Wouldn't it be a horrible thing to leave here, and this be the very best you ever had?
What if I am right? What if you are wrong?
What have you got to lose by checking Him out & see if He is God?
What have you got to lose? Everything.......

Ask about the alcohlism rate. No ones perfect. Faith has a way of healing, so does alcohol.
