What did Jesus sacrifice? Jesus “sacrificed” a life in a human body that ages in a world of suffering, war, sickness and hate. He “sacrificed” life on earth to go to heaven and live in complete health, power, and happiness for eternity. Is that a sacrifice? I think not.
In fact he didn’t decide to do anything. He could do “NOTHING but for the father”. How is it a sacrifice if he is forced to do it? God, his father, planned it all from the beginning to happen exactly as it did. How is that a sacrifice?
How is it a sacrifice on the part of his Father (1/3 party of the whole trinity thing)? His Father knows all along that Jesus would come back to him, he controls it all according to his will, his pleasure and his desires. His son was sent according to his Father’s will, his Father’s pleasure. If it was according to God’s pleasure then that means God had a feeling of happy satisfaction and enjoyment in sending his son to earth to be tortured and killed. How is that a sacrifice? How is that not sick?
Instead of remaining on earth to be hated by many whom were out to harm him, living among humans that always wanted something from him, a world full of sinners, evil and those wanting to kill him, even torture him; He “sacrifices” to have eternal life of health, peace, no pain, no sadness, no worries, and complete power over all. How in the hell is that a sacrifice?
Christian ignore the questions and attempt to tell me that they would be happy to explain the story of God/Jesus to me because they think I am misinformed. If I am so misinformed then why is it they don’t address the questions? Why is it they avoid the facts, evidence or logic and continue to reply with claims and excuses that are not supported by facts or evidence?
It seems to me was a coward and he got the good end of the deal while he left the rest of humans to die and suffer on earth. War, sickness, hunger, famine, hate, intolerance….etc on earth for peace, love, health for eternity in heaven. That is a simple choice, if you ask me.
Clearly, not a sacrifice on the part of Jesus or his Father.
So, he leaves the rest of humans back on earth to suffer…even children suffering for lack of food, water, medication, shelter and often die. Many children molested or harmed in war. Ever see an amputee healed by this Jesus? No, you haven’t. You won’t. Jesus doesn’t seem to do anything outside of the stories about him.
