It's because of the standard of Heaven and Hell. Watch the show The Good Place. There's one episode where they are at the cenrer where people are filed for the Good Place, Bad Place, or Neutral Place. The Neutral Place only has one inhabitant prior to them adding that guy, and the Good Place has not had a person in 700 years. It's like that, only even more extreme. If we were talking about God's standards, not Abraham himself would be faultless.
Watch the show????? Watch the show!
The point of the sacrifice is to cover the debt of sin that keeps us from getting near Heaven. Without it, all who die are bound for the same place.
A sin is something that displeases your god. If your god wants to have that "debt" covered, the god could do it any way it wanted to.
But apparently you (and Jesus) felt that your god was of the mind, "I will forgive you for offending me, but first you must torture and kill my son."
If that god where a human demanding that...ALL OF YOU PEOPLE would agree that he should be put into a mental institution.
None of us deserve the reward, all deserve punishment. Grace is things that are awarded despite being earned.
None of us deserve punishment or reward. We each live our lives...doing the things we want to do...and not doing the things we do not want to do. If your god is offended by that...there is something seriously wrong with your god. (Or more likely, something seriously wrong with your blind guesses about your god.)
Leadfoot predicted that something might slip out. This is what it is. That you have a very basic and flawed notion of the how and why of Heaven, Hell, and Jesus. You can work on that.
You are asserting that you know what Jesus, Heaven and Hell truly are...and that my notions are flawed.
But MY NOTIONS are that I do not know.
There is nothing wrong with my notion that I do not know...BECAUSE I DO NOT KNOW.
Or you can sound like a broken record and keep telling ppl they don't know.
Yeah, I am telling you that your assertions about the true nature of the REALITY of existence...ARE NOTHING BUT BLIND GUESSES.
The only reason I am doing that is because your assertions about the true nature of the REALITY of existence ARE NOTHING BUT BLIND GUESSES.
Start with the answer to your question by asking, "Why do the creeds talk of how Jesus descended into Hell?" Now some translate this as " the grave" but this misses the point. The point is a jailbreak.
Because your blind guess is that the creed actually tells us something about the REALITY?
Wake the hell up!
