Jesus in not the son of god, he is God, not his only begotten son. so why say he sacrificed his only son for us. How dare you say that that was a sacrifice! At least when elves died for my sins he stayed dead. If you came to me tomorrow and said " Hey, if you let us beat you, whip you, and torture you, and hang you up and kill you i guarantee you that poverty would end in the world tomorrow" I'd do it. If theres an absolute guarantee that would be the outcome i would do it. id be known forever as the guy who ended poverty throughout the world. if you can come up with no better justification then empathy and compassion.... fame, living forever as the guy who ended poverty. But if you came to me and said "btw, not only are we going to beat you and torture you, and hang you up and kill you, but we'll raise you from the dead in 3 days." thats NOT a sacrifice!!! What exactly did God sacrifice?
