So Jesus dying uselessly and needless for his church, instead of just forgiving it outright, is somehow a good thing to you. Explain please.
On Jesus dying for you.
You have swallowed a lie and don’t care how evil you make Jesus to keep your feel good get out of hell free card.
It is a lie, first and foremost because, like it or not, having another innocent person suffer or die for the wrongs you have done, --- so that you might escape responsibility for having done them, --- is immoral. To abdicate your personal responsibility for your actions or use a scapegoat is immoral.
You also have to ignore what Jesus, as a Jewish Rabbi, would have taught his people.
Ezekiel 18:20 The soul that sinneth, it shall die. The son shall not bear the iniquity of the father, neither shall the father bear the iniquity of the son: the righteousness of the righteous shall be upon him, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon him.
Deuteronomy 24:16 (ESV) "Fathers shall not be put to death because of their children, nor shall children be put to death because of their fathers. Each one shall be put to death for his own sin.
Psa 49;7 None of them can by any means redeem his brother, nor give to God a ransom for him:
There is no way that you would teach your children to use a scapegoat to escape their just punishments and here you are doing just that.
Jesus is just a smidge less immoral than his demiurge genocidal father, and here you are trying to put him as low in moral fibre as Yahweh. Satan applauds you though as you are doing her work. Congratulations, Christian.
Destruction/harm is not an expression of omnipotence/power, it’s an admission of powerlessness. In other words, an entity who destroys because there was “no other option” is the opposite of omnipotent by very definition.
I believe our elites wanted to promote secularism because a secular worldview is more incline to get along with consumerism and the laws of the market.
And those who deny that we're living in a spiritual environment can be more easily modeled by the society.
They know what they have to do so people will accept the mark of the beast as a cool tattoo and a modern thingy while those who will refuse it will be considered backward, uneducated ect...
I was laughing stock at school daily, remember making big rounds around my town on sunday, looking for a chance to sneak in to the church unnoticed, because if they did monday at school is going to be "fun" again...My sister couldn't find a job for quite a while. Because nobody likes religious freaks . Once atheism becomes a norm, it becomes incredibly tough for religious people. While in religious countries there are plenty of atheists and nobody cares, nobody disturbs them. I guess only when you give people power they show their true faces...To this day i have tough time admitting im a believer publicly...Fear simply doesn't go away...
There are places in this country where the opposite is true though. Every group is guilty of it on some level... it’s actually quite easily explained by group psychology, though I know most of you write off psychology as nonsense.
If you follow group psychology, you will know that real men, and yes I use "real" purposely, you will see that real men give full equality to women and children under the law of the land, but will also ignore that law for the law of the sea that puts women and children above men at all times.
If you take the religious who are only tribal and not religious out of the count, then most countries are atheist countries. There are a lot of religious liars, and here I am using the definition Jesus used as to who the faithful really are.
