'If you don't place your faith in Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, He was just another nice guy who was killed. If you do accept Him as the
ultimate sacrifice for your wrong deeds and for your inaction when action was called for (i.e. sin), His blood not only covers those actions, but
washes them clean.' Jungle Jake
I see it quite differently Jake. I see him as far more than just another nice guy who was killed. Maybe JFK could be seen that way, though even he
was more than just another nice guy. Martyrs like Biko, Saro-Wiwa, Martin Luther King II, Malcolm X, and many others are great heroes to me. Jesus'
message is a great source of wisdom, and his teachings are a rich source of profound concepts. We would all do well to follow his example. As for
accepting him as a sacrifice, and letting him pay for my sins... no. He may be who you say, but even so, and even were he to personally ask me to let
him pay for my sins so I could avoid hell and enter heaven, I'd politely decline.
