Is it egotistical to think that a God would die for you?

I understand your point of view jiggerj. I'm not so sure I could give up one of my kids or my grandkid even to save everyone else in the whole world. I'm an imperfect human and I'm selfish, not to mention that while I may love my fellow man it doesn't compare with the love I have for my own family- that's probably why I was never elected God.



And for that wisdom, I'd vote for you!

I believe the question he is asking is: Would you kill your son to save your cat? If we are mere pets to a god, would he sacrifice his son for us? Even if we were equal to Jesus, the question would then be, would you kill your son for your mother or brother? On all points the answer would be no.


It's a different situation in that Jesus was sacrificed for the sake of the entire world, not for only a cat, a mother or a brother- not to mention the fact that upon his death he was reunited with his Father in Heaven. Also there are many who believe that Jesus was in fact the spirit of God made flesh and if that was the case he would be giving himself up to sacrifice. I try to look at it from a completely human perspective: If the house caught fire and one child is in one room and 3 other children are in another room and you can only rescue the occupant(s) of one of the rooms before the entire house goes up in flames which do you save? The one child or the three? A heartbreaking decision no matter what. So if you were God (don't worry, I know how you feel but this is hypothetical) and you loved all of mankind as your children and you could save the one child or you could save millions if not billions of children but not both which would you choose?


Would you trust the judgement of the one who started the fire?

In this case God started the fire and then demanded that Jesus go into a room and die.

Quite insane that God.

You are not much saner as you think a God can sacrifice something to himself.

If a God expected 'love' from His creation, then He'd better be willing to experience our misery and die for us. Otherwise, it's just fear and the attitude of slaves towards a master that He could expect to receive from us.

The esoteric view is definitely the one to have when reading of Jesus. You are wise.

Literalists idol worship and have found their Godinabook and will thus never find the God that Jesus speaks of.

There is no way that churches will give his true message. It would not create reliance nor $$$$$ for the church and that is all they care about.

Absolutely.

The same that it is egotisitcal to think a god is always working things out on someone's behalf.

I have always felt that religious people were egotistical when they say the phrase "I'm blessed".

I agree.

To think so certainly would make them think, -------
