Fran, I know you think you mean well, but the Jesus story does not hold up. Even if it was documented in the bible, it still doesn't hold up.
A man who was supposedly born of a virgin, performed miracles, healed the sick, walked on water and resurrected into heaven? Just look at that previous statement. Evidence doesn't mean a thing when making claims like that. We want proof. Where is the proof? Oh I forgot, the disciples saw many of these things right? Even if they did see Jesus' works, they had faith by seeing and not by believing like you have to do.
You then say that you love us. Tell me something Fran, what is it that you love about me the most? You see, you don't even know me. I could be a Christian in disguise so I can't believe you when you say you love us. I know you think it sounds good, but be real. You don't know us like that.
This is why people hate Christianity so much. You guys are too busy walking around with your heads in the afterlife. Always thinking about what's going to happen when I die or the next man die. Always focusing on getting everyone into a place that only exist if you have faith. Always damning people to hell. Always speaking on behalf of your God while he remains silent. If you Christians love us so much, you'd stop preaching and let us focus on what's happening right now because I don't know about everyone here, but I don't want to go around thinking about where my "soul" may end up.
I do have an important question for you though. If intelligent life exist somewhere else in our universe, did Jesus die for those peoples sins too?
Hopefully, life will be discovered elsewhere in our universe during my lifetime. If it happens, I predict it will shatter religious that are taught all over the world. There also is a very good chance that if life is found somewhere else, our government will try to cover it up for that very reason. Religious people may go totally nuts.
