I only care about Jesus because He promises me something??<quoted text>
Would you REALLY care about this man named Jesus if he didn't promise eternal salvation?
Would you still be interested in his earthly life? Would you care about all the characters in the story that you know off by heart? NO you wouldn't. So in essence you don't care for Jesus because he was a good man, you ONLY care about him because you believe he promised you something.
I understand in the Atheist world its all about me me me. You only view the world as far as your personal satisfaction can allow you.
In Christianity its not about me me me at all.
I happen to love Jesus Christ and I believe through the Eucharist and Gospel I've come to know Him.
Heck, I feel like I know Him better than I know members of my own family. That's the truth.
