Question Why didn't he kill them?

With it being Good Friday today, I was wondering... Why didn't God kill those who Crucified Jesus? I mean, God killed all those who disobyed him when Moses was getting the 10 Commandemnts. Because Jesus was sent here to die? Well, doesn't the 1st commandment say you should only worship one God? Isn't Jesus God? Tell me what you think....

Jesus was all about peace and turning the other cheek. He asked His Father to forgive those who had persecuted and killed him. That's the long and short of it, I think.

Because, while dying on the cross, Jesus said...

"Father forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing." Luke 23:34

God respected Jesus' wish.

Because the entire point was that Jesus should die. It was suicide, you might say, and not murder.

The real question is: What would have happened had pontius pilate spared Jesus's life? What if his captors had a change of heart and decided to let Jesus live? What would that mean then (in the grand scheme of things)? How would History have played out?

Just a hypothetical pondering. What do the believers think the world would be like now?

If Jesus had been executed in the 20th century would you all be walking around with little electric chairs around your necks?

Not only funny to me, but I think a good point. I know few people in places like where I work. They think they are the son of god too. What's the difference between a crazy guy saying he is the son of god 2,000 years ago and a crazy guy in a mental hospital saying the same thing... Not much... There both disruptive to the peace. Only today they aren't executed... State tax money feeds them and cloths them...

The fact that Jesus performed miracles, raised people from the dead and even raised himself isn't enough?

I'll bet those folks that Jack works with will tell you that they do. And I'll bet you that others there have seen them do it. Their eyewitness testimony has to be as substantial as a set of documents that is over 2 millenia in age.

Not intended to be disrespectful... only to point out the disparity. The fact of the matter is that there is no evidence that exists that proves Jesus performed a miracle anymore than there is evidence to prove that those executed in Salem were, in fact, witches and could perform spells.

The thing is..how do you know Jesus performed miracles? Do you have any knowledge about that besides a big book?

I'm not trying to be disrespectful, but..

Cosmos Jack didn't ever say in the story that the man did miracles...

And I believe that there is historical records of Jesus doing miracles.... I'll have to look it up though.

I don't think I could have said it better myself, but this guy said it best...

"Religion is regarded by the COMMON people as true, by the WISE as false, and by RULERS as useful" Lucius Annaeus Seneca

That's exactly how I feel about religion. Not intended to be disrespectful, because I am most of the time. I'm not a Christian never have and never will be religious. Religion has it's purpose for people who need it to live there lives; however it is myth and only that. It can be baste on real people, but still doesn't have to be true just because its in a book written by a man. A man that said he was possessed by the holy ghost or however the book was written. I can right a book say I was possessed by the one true god this day and time and nobody would beleave me. 1000 years ago I would have a cult in no time.

I'm tired I'm going to sleep. Been trying to tell Jesus he can't walk threw walls all night long.

There is a point there.

The cross is only the symbol of Christianity because it was used to execute Jesus with, and we should remember that.

The cross is no more holy to the rest of us than the wheel is a holy symbol to buddhists.

I get furious at people who correct someone who uses "God" in a sentence ("Thank God", for example) when they're not Christians, or when someones makes fun of the cross. Who says they're talking about their god? It's none of their damn, f*cking business, and if they want to make fun of an ancient execution instrument, it's their choice. To "correct them" is showing lack of respect.

BTW, Why would someone make fun of an ancient execution instrument? I don't see anything funny about a piece of wood where people were killed?

Well, not "make fun of" per se, but if you turn it upside down, all of a sudden, some people go berserk...

right, like when I suspended from school for wearing one like that because it offended someone. When I told the dean that the normal cross offended me, did he do anything. No. And that my friends is called hypocracy. A cross can get you suspended if its the wrong way, but it stops punishment if its the right way.

I was just wondering the other day in church about something....When Jesus is having the last supper he tells his disciples that it would be better for the person who betrays him to have never been born. But why? Isn't the person who betrays him helping him to fulfill his destiny and what he came to Earth to do?

I never heard that version....
Well, the person who betrays ends up commiting suicide. And he probably got sent to Hell. *shrugs*

Very unfair, that is. After all, he only did what he thought was best. Judas was no bad man.

I mean, Judas DID betray Christ to be crucified......but he was fulfilling Christ's destiny......wasn't he sort of helping out God?

Actually I've heard that there is a faction of Christianity that venerates Judas as the saint who helped Christ fulfill his prophecy. Say that the stuff about him committing suicide is a cover-up to daemonize him. Got no reliable sources, though, just hearsay that I picked up somewhere.

think z, moses was old testiment and the crusifiction was new testiment. in old testiment god smited everyone, the people wanted to get a message across, moses had the power of god with him, its is an example of a theophany or god showing himself in a way, ie the burning bush, parting water, its said that the jews faith is what saved them, because their faith was extreme and OT was teaching the point that faith will save you, plus do you rememebr the crusifiction,jesus said forgive them,they know not what they do. plus it was gods plan for him to die for us.

Well God just sent me a vision predicting that some mod is about to come along and say, "don't double post darign dueler"...you'll see...it'll happen...it happens everytime...GRRRR

Sry a lil off subject...Now a mod is about to say...your post was off topic joe"

Anyway, I agree with daring dueler: the Jews were actually God's chosen people and he wouldn't just kill them for fulfiling his will.

Not only did it "save" the jews, it also slaughtered thousands of innocent. Not only innocent egyptians, but also all the women and children wich Joshua and his mates brutally slaughtered because they were living in their "holy land".

But if they didn't know what to do, or if they only fufilled God's plan...that wouldn't make them sinners, would it? But according to the Bible, Jesus died because they had sinned against him. But they can't have, so why the helheim did he die?

Religion gets more and more odd for each passing day.

Daring dueler, now, would OT be Old Testament or Original Trilogy?

Sorry, just had to get that one in there.

To get serious and answer the question at hand, it could easily be answered with the Christians's favourite dismissal of any hint at God's fallibility: God works in mysterious ways.

But asking that question you give away that you sorta have a limited view on the whole God thing. Why should he be so hasty to kill them there and then? They'd die eventually and then he could deal with them for eternity, I mean real old testimonial wrath of God type o' stuff - Fire and brimstone falling from the sky, mass hysteria, terror, seas boiling, 40 years of darkness, cats and dogs living together!

ummmm, no, GOD or it didnt slaughter innocent or any ejyptions,unless you meen passover, which has been blamed on a plague........and that joshua, not god.
rember much of OT (old testiment not origianl trilogy)
is based on teaching a lesson, and much of it isnt historically true but rather religous truth in that everything in the bible is true, to the point of the teachings, not necisarily historically, like adam and eve, not true, but a true lesson.
