God sacrificed His one and only Son for you for me... for humans...people.. His creation....HE'S crazy in Love with You! He would've sent Him(His son) just for You...He died for your sins, for mine.. So we could live eternally with Him... It's true. I'm living proof. Proof is all around us! Thank you Father for saving me. For my RESCUE. never let me forget what You saved me from.
Than answer the question. Who did your god have to make a sacrifice (of jesus) to? And why would an all powerful god have to sacrifice to another God?

Definitely not cruel. NOTHING BAD comes from God. BAD things come from Satan. Not hard to figure that one out if you have read the Bible.
Thank you Jesus for your UNCONDITIONAL LOVE... I LOVE YOU... Ill praise you always. TY TY TY words cannot even begin to express this love. Hate even included in same sentence with God is not close to accurate. The most important of these is LOVE. That's what our God is about. Love love love
Jesus supported owning slaves and beating them, YOU would be one of the jews slaves if they had any power

And Job never spoke against God. That's proof how great He is... Good point. TY :-)
God allowed Satan to bring those to Job. He also protected Him and LOOK how he was BLESSED after all that. What Satan meant for harm just came out BETTER for Job. Thanks for that reminder. I love Job. What a great man

It's not appropriate to teach religion in school. we live in a diverse society and can't teach all religions in schools. One has to keep these separate, it's up to the parents to inform their children on religious upbringing. I thought this issue was long solved, but i see it keeps coming back up.
That's like saying history shouldn't be taught because someone may be descended from a group or a culture discussed and get offended. Or that science shouldn't be taught because scientific theory is ever changing and often contradictory. Oh and let's not forget PE, because kids could get teased and it should be a parents decision if their child lives a healthy life. As long as there is a varied, multi-cultural population, there will continue to be differences of opinion, tradition, and expectations. We cannot allow one persons freedom to override that of another. How will we ever understand each other if we don't bother to learn? Those who follow any religion know that religion is part of everything you do, everything you say, what you believe, and who you are.

1john 2:22-23
So who is lying here? It's the person who denies that Jesus is the Divine Christ, that's who. This is what makes an anti-Christ: denying the Father, denying the Son. No one who denies the Son has any part with 1john 2:21-23 (in context) 1 John 2 (whole chapter)

So, you don't think burning in agony for all eternity is cruel? And maybe more than a little disproportionate to the "offense"? If so, you're even more depraved than I thought. How you people think you're morally superior to anyone is amazing.

By the way, your little religious rant above is not very dissimilar to what Islamic terrorists scream before blowing themselves (and others) up. Just replace "Jesus" with "Allah".

Truly frightening...
Um-here you go

Which bible? There are several hundred different religions and interpretations of those religions.
By capitalizing the "B" in bible, it denotes which book is being discussed. The word bible is Latin for book, and is never capitalized in the English language unless it is at the beginning of a sentance, or a used as a noun. The only time it is used as a noun, as in the case: Bible, is when discussing The Holy Bible, which is the sacred text in Christianity. There are several translations, all of the same original texts, and some more or less widely accepted due to grammatical variances.

Continued : the Father , but affirming the Son is an embrace of the Father as well.

We don't BLOW ourselves up and my little "rantings" as you call them are praises to my God that has saved and delivered me of which you know nothing about. You don't scare me or threaten me. I feel nothing but sorrow for you because you deny our maker. The person you would run to if you Knew Him and not of Him. When you have been RESCUED you realize how much Grace and Mercy you have been shown and therefore I continually PRAISE MY GOD... Continue to think what you will just like I do. I have my own proof. Living proof. That's all I need...thank you Jesus. I love you

Oh and it's YOUR CHOIce if you burn in agony. That's why it's called FREE WILL. You choose Heaven or Hell. It's not that hard to figure out. The gospel is easy enough for a child to
Understand it's adults that COMPLICATE the gospel.

There is proof all around us. Doesn't really take a scientist or brain surgeon to figure it out.
I would rather have my intelligence than have a iq so high that I have no common sense or deny what I can't see. Can you see the WIND? Lol. No but you know it's there!

Well, I guess if I believed in a god that was going to burn me for eternity if I din't constantly give him props, I'd probably do the same.
It must be terrifying for you. How do you know that you're doing the song and dance right? What about all the people who are certain that you're doing it wrong and are convinced (just as convinced as you) that you are going to hell because you believe differently? I mean, heck if he's willing to eternally torture people with extreme and unrelenting pain for just not believing he exists... what wouldn't set him off? What if what really makes him mad is not using your intelligence and thinking freely and rationally?

Is that supposed to be representative of your logical prowess? I said things didn't work out so well for Job's FAMILY. That he was given another one must have been scant consolation to the first. In war, they would be called "collateral damage." What do you call it in "LOVE?" Maybe you aren't familiar with the story.
Satan shows up on God's doorstep with some other angels. God asks where he's been.(God couldn't see where he was?) Satan said wandering around the Earth. God singles out Job as someone who is fearful of Him and tries to do the right thing. The devils says, no kidding, you pamper him. God says, alright then, do your worst - he'll still prostrate himself before me.
Job is driven almost to suicide, confused about what he'd done to deserve such punishment (he never does figure out that it's the devil who's been put up to it, does he?) and the answer that was hidden from him? It was all just to have God win the bet that Job would remain God fearing. No shyte! That is God's "unconditional love?" Yer whacko, Lady.

You state that god made a sacrifice FOR people, but I asked WHO god made the sacrifice TO.
If god was all powerful why would he need to make a sacrifice?
Why did your god demand that people sacrifice animals to him and slaughter people for him?
Your god is far from a loving god. And the fable of jesus loving every one is not true. Jesus hated any one who was not jewish and condoned making them slaves.
Please read your bible. The whole bible and not a verse here and a verse there

I usually capitalize for anything referring to God or His word. So sorry if I offended you. Such little things to point out...it take notice of but that's my opinion just like you have yours
