BIBLICAL ANSWERS The Trouble with God’s Sacrifice

The Trouble with God’s Sacrifice

Like the post? Why not make it Facebook official. ⇊

I have had many conversations with atheists, they of course convey many reasons why God does not exist. To which I of course attempt to convey God’s goodness and willingness to forgive which certainly includes atheists. Now do not get me wrong here, I am not trying to impugn anyone’s character at all, but these conversation’s set me to thinking.

If you can only give $5.00, please do so - every little bit helps. Thank you so much, and God bless. Letter from General Flynn. 


This was all started by this post: THERE IS ABSOLUTE PROOF THAT YESHUA (JESUS THE CHRIST) ROSE FROM THE DEAD! This is a great post and I recommend it highly, one of the best I have read on this, and no I did not write it!

One of the things often said by atheists is, “sorry, but having somebody ‘die for me’ is disgusting and reprehensible.”

Ok, well on the face of it I can for a moment see how a person could feel that way especially an unbeliever. I remember being new to the faith and hearing songs in church praising the shed blood of Christ…I did not like it. Then I began to understand and the reasoning behind why we would sing about such things permeated my soul.

Lets take a closer look at this thought that Christ sacrificing His life is reprehensible. As I said, on the face of it this seems like a reasonable view. But lets dig down deeper.

Imagine the following situation; you are in a bank with your wife; someone comes up to the teller counter and demands money. Things go wrong, and the would-be thief grabs your wife as a hostage. You the husband ask the thief to take you in her place. Now, is that disgusting? Why would anyone do that? Because that husband loves his wife enough to give his own life for her if need be.

Is this not the very same thing Jesus did for us but in a much bigger and more meaningful way?

How about this scenario; Mom is a teacher, someone has a gun pointed at her own child and she knows the man is going to shoot her child. What do you think Mom does here…she jumps in front of the child and takes the bullet for her child. Far fetched? I do not think so. I believe the women reading this would testify to the fact they would do almost anything to protect their child, including die for them. Is this disgusting, reprehensible, or wrong? Not hardly, it is act done in love.

Jesus did the same thing for us because He loves us. The “gun” was the Father’s wrath against a sinful people. Jesus was the one who stepped in front of the gun and took the “bullet” for us…because He loved us and wanted to protect us from the price of our own sins – death. The obvious difference here being we deserve the punishment of the Father, yet we escaped that punishment through the loving sacrifice of Christ.

You cannot say that human beings that give their lives for someone in love is ok, then turn around and say that Christ’s sacrifice in love is reprehensible. That is simply another excuse to disbelieve God.

Then there is this widespread thought: “It is the choice of a strange god to send people to hell for not believing God exists. Why on earth is that a god I’m supposed to want to exist, even if I thought it did?”

We have to understand that this mindset is fostered by the enemy. Satan is the god of this world for a time and blinds the minds of unbelievers. Instead of persecuting these people we need to pray for them that God would open the eyes of their hearts and lead them into all truth.

God does not ever “send people to hell”. Everyone has a choice in whether or not to accept and believe in Christ – NOT making a choice is effectively making a choice to disbelieve God. All people will be raised up before God in the end and all people will have eternal life. The question is not about eternal life – the true question is where will you be spending eternity?

There will be two groups of people before the Lord and two only – regardless of your beliefs.

  1. Group 1 – In life these people said, “thy will be done” – they will be in heaven with God for eternity
  2. Group 2 – In life these people said, “my will be done” – they will be in hell for all eternity

God loves all people, but He is a gentleman and will not force Himself on people. Your choice in this life will determine your place in the next life, eternity. Is it worth it to gamble with your eternity that you may be wrong about the existence of God?

  1. In a mother’s womb were two babies. One asked the other: “Do you believe in life after delivery?” The other replied, “Why, of course. There has to be something after delivery. Maybe we are here to prepare ourselves for what we will be later.”
    “Nonsense” said the first. “There is no life after delivery. What kind of life would that be?”
    The second said, “I don’t know, but there will be more light than here. Maybe we will walk with our legs and eat from our mouths. Maybe we will have other senses that we can’t understand now.”
    The first replied, “That is absurd. Walking is impossible. And eating with our mouths? Ridiculous! The umbilical cord supplies nutrition and everything we need. But the umbilical cord is so short. Life after delivery is to be logically excluded.”
    The second insisted, “Well I think there is something and maybe it’s different than it is here. Maybe we won’t need this physical cord anymore.”
    The first replied, “Nonsense. And moreover if there is life, then why has no one ever come back from there? Delivery is the end of life, and in the after-delivery there is nothing but darkness and silence and oblivion. It takes us nowhere.”
    “Well, I don’t know,” said the second, “but certainly we will meet Mother and she will take care of us.”
    The first replied “Mother? You actually believe in Mother? That’s laughable. If Mother exists then where is she now?”
    The second said, “She is all around us. We are surrounded by her. We are of Her. It is in Her that we live. Without Her this world would not and could not exist.”
    Said the first: “Well I don’t see Her, so it is only logical that She doesn’t exist.”
    To which the second replied, “Sometimes, when you’re in silence and you focus and you really listen, you can perceive Her presence, and you can hear Her loving voice, calling down from above.” – Útmutató a Léleknek
