Quoting the bible won't convince me. It's a book. Green Eggs and Ham is a book, so is a lot of other trash. If god wants me to believe in him, he should come down here and be like "Eh Crare... I'm real" and then prove it. Instead, he has to be a dick about it and let us base our lives off faith before we can go to Heaven and worship him even more until the end of time. I don't like being told I have to believe something I have no proof of or else I am going to be in eternal pain and suffering when I die. Faith is not something to base my life off of.
50 bucks to the person who can make me believe in god.

Why I don't believe Jesus Christ died for my sins.
First of all, because I have never sinned, I will never sin in my whole life now matter how hard I may try. There is no sin because there is no God nor there has haver been a son of God.
We live in a nihilistic reality, sin doesn't exist because there is no universal being to create universal truths, there isn't any God and therefore no one to declare which actions are sins and which aren't.
Second, I must agree with the above post, Quoting from the bible won't make me believe in anything.
It's no proof that everything any prophet said is real just because some of his profecies came true, specially if those profecies are vague and are redundant in relation to the reality in which the profecie was born.
What the hell, some guys saying that people would not believe in Jesus and would not listen to his teachings in the future, that was true even for their times!
Many didn't care for Jesus' teachings in Jesus time, many didn't listen to what his disciples said after his death, now what a big profecie, some people won't believe in Jesus in the future, wowwwwwwwww, now that's BIG!
There is no proof that God exists
There is no proof that Jesus was the son of god provided God exists or existed.
Some people even doubt Jesus has ever existed at all.
Why should I believe then that Jesus died for my sins? Why should I deny my individual thought, my individual action, my individual values, morals and ethics or lack of them for some people say a bigger existence tells me to?
What if some profecies are true?
Many of them aren't, most of them actually. If God really wanted us to know he exists he could say something that is an universal truth to people, oh but he won't for some dark mysterious reason we won't. But you want me to believe in him and why? because if I do I will be saved and go to heaven, NO! there is no heaven nor afterlife. When you die you die and it's the end, why should I believe anything else?
Why don't you tell me why should I believe Jesus died for my sins?
I believe in science and sometimes even about science I do doubt, I believe in this reality but also that is dubious, why should I blindly believe something I have no proof about its existence?
