Your ugly god **requires** something to be **murdered** before he can manage to forgive.
That is a plain as it gets.
You worship a **blood** cult.
You even practice ritual cannibalism and ritual vampirism too.
What do you call it? Oh yeah... "holy communion".
Riiiiight.
You're wrong, bob. You're lying, bob. You have no proof, bob. I'm not Catholic, bob. You keep claiming God requires murder but offer no proof, bob. Yo're a wrong/lying/cowardly liar, bob. Hardly a newsflash...

I always find it amusing that those trying to defend the book they claim to follow have obviously never even bothered to read it!

Yes, or know about the bad stuff in the Bible, but pretend that its all sweetness and light.

LOL!... or claim, when the bad stuff is pointed out, that we're "taking it out of context" or "misinterpreting it"

They have all been issued True Believer Secret Decoder Rings(TM) that allow them to explain away the crazy and evil stuff with language-defying and reason-defying "explanations" that those passages mean something else. I think these secret decoder rings are found inside cereal boxes. Not quite as useful as the old Cap'n Crunch whistles that made a 2600 hz tone, back when the phone system was all analog.

Yeah, but the whistles were awesome. They were pitched at the exact frequency the phone company used to signal a line was clear. Dial an 800 number to get a connection to a trunk line, blow the whistle into the receiver, and phun ensued.

That isn't God's directive, sport- that is a recitation of history. Big difference. Any wonder why I pay more attention to the Book of Mathew?

Nope. Your ugly god requires MURDER before he will or can forgive.

That's in your ugly BIBLE you idiot.

Prove it-- quote me DIRECT with links, and PROVE IT.

You cannot-- because I'm not lying.

Bible: it clearly states your ugly god MUST HAVE A MURDER before he can muster up enough MoJo to forgive.

So? You admitted to being one of those Genuine Christians™, so you are guilty.

Bible says your ugly god DOES. Bible clearly states NO forgiveness unless SOMETHING DIES.

Else why did your god murder himself in his Jewsus incarnation?

And this murder unlocked... MAGICAL FORGIVENESS FOR ALL.

See?

Your bible agrees with ME.

So who's lying? Oh! That would be YOU.

Again.

A resounding NO.

Where is the divine guidance as promised by your bible?

<quoted text>1) there is zero historical evidence supporting a human named Jesus as even having lived.

2) a god, as your story claims, cannot suffer mortal suffering. Impossible. An immortal being cannot understand what it means to DIE... immortal, remember?

So the "suffering" and "dying" is a JOKE. Utterly without meaning.

3) WHY ON EARTH does your god REQUIRE MURDER BEFORE HE CAN MUSTER UP FORGIVENESS?

A mere human mortal can forgive WITHOUT needing anything murdered first!

This makes mere HUMANS to be SUPERIOR to your god!
