With that costume came all the erges and struggles that you and I have though. Because he was able to live his life with out sin he made the perfect sacrifice to atone for our sin. The reason for animal Sacrifices for the Jewish tradition was to atone for sins. The only problem was that every time you sinned you had to atone for it. Jesus became the
perfect sacrifice for the atonement of our sins. He took the place of those animals and, for that matter, us when he died on the cross.
The only way to heaven is through that Sacrifice. Jesus. So when he said 'I am the way the truth and the life no one comes to the father except through me". He meant it. You could think of it as God undoing what Adam and Eve did in the garden sort of. Only we still live in sin because it's our nature but Christ is our way out. The only way out.
Now I could get into "what about the jews". But I won't unless you want me to.
I don't buy any of it.
So let's see, this is discussion 461 about our differing views on religion. Let's get the score. You: Still haven't changed belief system. Me: Still haven't changed belief system. Number of people swayed one way or the other on this board in the last 5 years: 0. Total result: Same old shit.
No point in derailing this thread any further, see you at the next debate.
