It leads to several interesting questions.<quoted text>
I almost mistook you for a preaching godbot when I saw all those verses.
One wonders why a loving god would allow people to inherit "original sin" instead of using his magical to zap the disease away?
Maybe god secretly wants people to go to hell so he invented an excuse to send them there.
If all mankind were cursed because of one man's (and one woman's) act, and god wanted to forgive and lift the curse, why was a sacrifice needed before he could forgive? Wouldn't an all powerful being inherently have the power to simply say "I forgive, the curse is lifted"? Would seem easier than the elaborate measures needed to have a woman immaculately conceived in order to bear the child of the deity, so that that child could be killed as a sacrifice, but not really permanently dead. If there were an immaculate conception, that means god has the capability to have humans born without sin, and therefore he chooses not to. So he is sacrificing himself to himself in order to save us from... his choice to saddle us with a curse. A curse he imposed in the first place. That whole line of thinking is babbling lunacy.
If a sacrifice was required, who imposed the requirement? If god made the requirement, why could he not alter it if it suited his purpose? If the requirement is externally imposed, that means there is another being with the power to control or restrict the choices god can make. If so, that being is more powerful than god. Hmmm. Have theists been worshiping a mid-level manager instead of the CEO?
