God's design is OBVIOUSLY for everyone to be an ELCA Lutheran. You don't have to be arrogant or possess a power of discernment to see God's design. To most people that design is intuitively obvious. Something, or someone, is blocking your intuition. Probably the Roman Catholics.

What you might call "God's design" I call the universe. When I look at the stars at night, I am overwhelmed. An immensely (unimaginably) huge and wondrous place, and we little humans occupy a speck of that greatness.

What is NOT intuitively obvious, by any stretch of the imagination, is a random thought that some all-powerful being created all this, then decided that "he" didn't like the little humans he created and decided to sentence them all to an eternity of punishment, and the only way to get out of it was with a blood sacrifice. A BLOOD SACRIFICE. Just like the Mayans and hundreds of other civilizations that have waxed and waned over the millenia.

There's no way you can call the basic tenets of the christian religion (man is intrinsically evil, blood sacrifice is required) intuitive. Or logical. Or real.

Actually, that concept is only a part of the Saulian paradigm, and reached the form you've heard only a few centuries ago.

There are other followers of Yeshua who firmly believe that one of the many purposes of his life was to bring about the end of the sacrificial temple cult. This was the original Jerusalem community headed by James, Yeshua's brother. That sect did not die out.
