Is god a fraud?
« on: January 21, 2018, 01:42:08 AM »

I sometimes ask Christians what does the word "sacrifice" mean? Without resorting to a dictionary or Wikipedia, I would offer that it means to give up something of value and worth, in order to derive a greater good or benefit...perhaps to lose something, to give up and surrender, to go without.

So, we read in the Wholly Libel "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life"  John 3:16


The God of the bible knew that he would raise Jesus up from the dead so it was NOT a sacrifice- there was no intention to permanently lose "his son" to the crucifiction- god did not sacrifice Jesus and did not suffer a permanent loss, so the passage from the bible above is invalidated, isn't it?

It seems to me that the whole of Christianity falls down here, if my logic is ok.

Your thoughts please.
