Exactly how does someone getting murdered, by being crucified, make me suitable or deserving to go to heaven, and if this is a requirement by God, that does qualify me to pass through the pearly gates, why do I have to believe it.
If God wanted and needed a sacrifice to himself before he will let anybody into heaven, then when the Romans finished killing Jesus, didn't we all have a ticket to paradise?
God supposedly knows which of us will believe it, and those who won't. What has that got to do with the deal? Once he gets his born of a virgin, boy murdered, then he should be happy. A deal is a deal.
Now I'm not going to ask you to explain how Jesus, and God, and the holy ghost can all three be the same being, or how Jesus knowing he was divine, and immortal could really die, because it would unfairly burden your intellect, so I will stick with the original question.
What has my belief got to do with the whole thing? God got what he wanted, so we all should be admitted to heaven! Case closed!
