Geezer Posted August 2, 2018 Share Posted August 2, 2018 Jesus crucifixion wasn't unique. The Roman's executed a lot of people that way. It is a horrible way to die for sure and it's designed to inflect a lot of pain, suffering, & humiliation. Jusf for argument sake let's say that the entire episode took 24-30 hours for the arrest, trials, and pre-crucifixion torture. The Bible indicated Jesus died much quicker than most people that had to endure this torture. The Bible implies Jesus ended it himself by voluntarily giving up his spirit. So, God became flesh and voluntarily subjected himself to be tortured and ended his life voluntarily. That was all done so God could forgive sin. According to the Bible those that don't accept Jesus as Lord & Savior will be punished FOREVER by being burned alive without ever being allowed to die and end their suffering. What is fair about that? Jesus suffers for 24 hours or so and then ends his suffering voluntarily but sinners will be punished forever. How is that a just and fair punishment? Well it isn't but that isn't the point. The purpose of the story is to scare gullible humans into following the Bible's laws, rules, and commands without questioning them or the Churches authority, and that has proven to be a very successful strategy. 4 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
