Reply to "Not a Sermon only a Thought"

So at first God demanded an animal sacrifice for the atonement of every sin. Later he suddenly changed his mind that that was not necessary because Jesus' death was enough to atone for every sin. Seems like God is quite schizophrenic. And to demonstrate how well his judgement is, he picked a man who don't even know who is father is as Mary wouldn't divulge who she had sex with. That kind of kid was called a bastard back then and is still called a bastard now. The wise Jews of that time properly recognized that and labeled Jesus a bastard suggesting that his father was a Roman soldier.

If one peruse throughout history surrounding people of religious influence, one would quickly recognize that all of those people of religious influence had amassed a solid following while they were still alive. This is not the case with Jesus. He had to wait until some 300 years after his death to gain any traction which came on the backing of the Roman empire. Those who lived when Jesus was alive and who had the frontest row seat to study him did not see anything special in him. Even those who used to goof off with him forsook him and fled when the Roman soldiers arrested him. Peter claimed he didn't know Jesus when he needed to save his own skin. Followers of other religious personalities lived amongst, fought and even died for and with their leaders.

The passage above stated that "Jesus, however, willingly offered Himself once for all to atone for the sin of the entire world". This is pure lies and fantasies by the church as the Bible does not portray Jesus as willingly offering himself up for anything. Instead, it shows a man trying desperately trying to avoid being caught by the Romans. He tried to hide in the garden of Gethsemane telling his compadres to stand guard outside the garden but they couldn't care any less as they too fell asleep and failing to alert Jesus of the approach of the soldiers. Then when he was on the cross, he doesn't seem to know that being there was part of God's grand plan as he is crying out for pain and eventually showed how weak his faith was when he yelled out that God has forsaken him. He could have learned a thing or two from Job on what unyielding faith is.

I have no problem accepting that you have a right to post your fantasies. I do have an equal right to show where they are inconsistent with the written words. Your hope is that I subscribe to drinking the kool aid which I cannot in good conscience do. Now while I can acknowledge that you have the right to post your unsubstantiated fantasies, are you willing to acknowledge that I reference actual passages from the written book in my argument?
