    If Jesus was indeed human...

    ...and he had to die for the sins of the world...



    ...why does your God desire human sacrifice?

    I was a Priest in the Roman Catholic Church for 16 yuears my son. I urge you to visit your local Chapel, meet the Priest, join the Church, and take Church lessons. You will then know the answer to your question.

    Praise Jesus,

    very nice eagleseven.

    my philosophy prof used to go off on that subject with imagine yourself to be aliens and you walk into the notre dame cathedral. what would you think about the people praying to a sculpture of a human being tortured?

    baron, evangelical christians are insufferable with their out-of-context bible quotes as proof text.
    you and your instant link to gobs of christian propaganda is ridiculous.

    do you have any thoughts of your own, sir, beyond hahaha you know nothing about blah blah blah and click on this link to get educated?

    From your link:

    So your God was unwilling to let us into heaven, until he had the perfect human sacrifice?

    It took me 20 years to realize that the core dogma of Christianity is ethically no different from this guy:

    If you don't believe there is a God, what does it matter anyway to you?

    If you do, why do you want to make God into an image like man? Why not allow for God to be almighty, and to know what is right and good for His creation?

    My son I wasn't defrocked. I left the order in the late 80's after the Mount Cashel child abuse cover up by the Pope and Newfoundland government aided with by the RCMP. Only in the USA will justice be obtained for those who were abused and punishment for the Priests who abused them. Unfortunately my country, Canada, does not have as open a justice system as does the USA.
