I am confused, you say Jesus died for MY sins? Well, I was not alive then so he did not DIE for mine. If you believe that, then let me send you to prison to serve a life sentence in place of the one who really did the crime. You would be all upset that you had to be in prison for something you did not do so same thing. One only dies for themselves and no one else---HOGWASH!!
Good point.

The god/Jesus sadomasochistic death was a failure as it didn't rid the world of sin.

How many sins have been committed by humans since the death of Jesus?

Millions? Billions? Trillions?

The death of Jesus achieved absolutely nothing.

we are all sinners chilli. Neither you nor I are sinless. Thats why Jesus died for us. He has given us a way to be forgiven because we all need forgiveness.

I have noticed that babies are greedy, selfish, and mean to others.
They haven't any social values until they learn them.

Yes, those are sins. Now the really big question is 'Who Cares'.

Let's argue about the center of Moon being made of green cheese
instead.

sin1
s&#618;n/
noun
1.
an immoral act considered to be a transgression against divine law.
"a sin in the eyes of God"

So the default position for every baby is that it goes to Hell?

I see.

Nice god.

Sorry to tell you yet again that you are wrong....imagine that...that's what no study time will get ya though darlin.

Chris·ti·an·i·ty
ˌkrisCHēˈanitē/
noun
1.
the religion based on the person and teachings of Jesus of Nazareth, or its beliefs and practices.

The Catholics believe from the same bible you do dear, and the worship the same teachings of the biblical Jesus. I don't understand why you don't do your research even on the simple things before you type.

Catholics have added books to the bible. They also believe that you must do good works to enter heaven and that Jesus alone isn't enough. They also have a few other crazy beliefs. They are not considered Christians. Christians don't have a supreme leader or some priests to talk to God for you.

Ok anti...lets try this again.

Lol...yes dear Catholics are Christian based simply on the fact that the follow your Christian god. Whether you like the denomination is your choice, but you just helped prove a failure in the Christian religion, which is the acknowledgement of different interpretations of the bible and how it's caused such a break in the Christian religion. At least you can semi see the problems that the bible causes amongst its followers.

Quite arrogant of you to say whether or not you think someone has a belief in god. As per the definition of Christian, a catholic is Christian...but you are telling me that god says different, even though god says they are too?

Again you are great at putting words in my mouth. Did I say Catholics didn't believe in God? Of course not. God says what is in His word. Nothing more and nothing less. If Catholics believe you need a priest to confess your sins to and that salvation requires works then they simply aren't following the bible. I'm not saying catholics aren't going to heaven. Some will and some won't just like some people who claim to be Christians won't. All I can tell you is this...the only way to heaven is through Jesus Christ.

You are an IDIOT, if you were not born yet he could not have DIED for you or me or any unborn people. Did you ever play this game in school as we did. The teacher whispered a "secret" to the first one and they whispered it to the person behind them and so it went until it got to the last child who in turn told what he heard when it was told to him. The teacher had written what she said on the blackboard and pulled the map that was rolled up over the board down to cover it. She uncovered what she had written and everyone had a good laugh because it was not anything like what she had started with the first child. And so it goes with any events or written STORIES from long ago. I do not believe in the stories of OLD SHEEP Herders and called it the Bible, none of it adds up or makes sense and is totally unproven. Even all you so called Christians can't agree which religion is right or how to read the bible and get the same meaning for everyone. Can YOU tell me who made God???? Where did he come from???? You got an answer for jesus and adam and /eve but NO where does anyone have an answer of where and how God came from, so please give me an answer.

Then why do all the various christians, methodist, lutherans, nazarenes, and so forth run to the church and listen to the minister TELL them what the bible says and what they are supposed to do to get to "heaven" ? If you can read you do not need a minister to tell you what to believe nor do you have to promise to pay the church so much out of your paycheck each month. Have you seen what some of these churches PAY their minister now days just to tell you what the bible wants you to do---can't anybody read and THINK for themselves?
