Would you gladly sacrifice your life if dying meant the sins of all the people in the world would be erased?

too much of a christian question...
15 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Sunday 4/9/06 - 5:05:09 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, people need to be held accountable for their actions, i'm not just going to give them a clean slate.
15 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Sunday 4/9/06 - 5:06:44 PM EST (GMT-5)
No fing way. Because it wouldn't. And I'd rather see people being good people instead of expecting their "sins" to be "erased".
15 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Sunday 4/9/06 - 6:38:33 PM EST (GMT-5)
I don't know if I'd do it gladly.

I agree with both of these statements.
15 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Monday 4/10/06 - 9:51:48 AM EST (GMT-5)
Nope, I don't think it would matter. I would do it if it meant to end world hunger and war.
15 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Monday 4/10/06 - 9:52:00 AM EST (GMT-5)
I very much doubt it. I don't like the idea of ending my life so Harold Shipman (for example) can get into heaven.

Well considering i dont believe in anything called a "sin" i would say no. Even so, if someone does something wrong, im going to have to agree with everyone else and say i think they should be held accountable for their actions. Just because someone says "oh hey btw, me doing this will make all your mistakes in the past go away" doesnt mean you should completely forget the lessons learned from those mistakes.

No need for me to do it.
Christ already did that. If people don't believe in Christ's dying for our sins, why would they believe in me doing it?
15 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Monday 4/10/06 - 11:13:18 AM EST (GMT-5)
"Sin" is a Judeo/Christian/Islamic concept, and makes no sense to the rest of us. But the answer is no, anyway; I wouldn't sacrifice myself to save people like George W. Bush or Saddam Hussein from burning in Hell.
15 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Monday 4/10/06 - 11:19:51 AM EST (GMT-5)
Brett Weir I agree with you.
15 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Monday 4/10/06 - 4:53:48 PM EST (GMT-5)
well, hasn't someone already done that, Jesus? , I don't think anyone else would be able to do what He did
15 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Monday 4/10/06 - 4:56:19 PM EST (GMT-5)
I don't pretend to be God, and to think and believe have all the sins of people on your shoulders is already enough pressure for a self-induced suicide.
15 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Monday 4/10/06 - 5:00:09 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, since I do not believe in sin.

Maybe, if I believed in the concept of sin.

Is there another kind of suicide?
15 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Monday 4/10/06 - 11:14:05 PM EST (GMT-5)
I don't believe in the concept of sin, so I certainly wouldn't give my life for it.
15 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Tuesday 4/11/06 - 2:11:37 AM EST (GMT-5)
"Is there another kind of suicide?"

No, but I believe one kind is conscious and the other is not.. I'm talking about the unconscious mental suicide.

Yep. And they just started sinning all over again.

15 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Tuesday 4/11/06 - 7:26:02 AM EST (GMT-5)
depends if they would sin again. I mean there's no point letting some1 away with murder if they're just gonna do it again
15 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Tuesday 4/11/06 - 7:29:00 AM EST (GMT-5)
Only if it also meant that all the suffering caused by those sins would also be erased.
15 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Tuesday 4/11/06 - 7:29:19 AM EST (GMT-5)
Absolutely not.

This relies on some belief of 'sin' as something that can be erased.

I think of 'sin' as human nature. I wouldn't want to dehumanise humans.

Do you understand CHristianity, and the belief that Christ died for all our sins? Judging by your post, I don't think you know what you are talking about.
Jesus didn't die to END sin, He died to cleanse the souls of sinners. There is a big difference there.

15 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Tuesday 4/11/06 - 9:32:05 AM EST (GMT-5)
I might if it would make people less stupid and hateful.

But I don't believe in the concept of sin.
