    Finally, why did God have to sacrifice his son Jesus to forgive man for sin? Why not just forgive man? This entire story of your Christian God makes no sense.

    God is an all knowing and powerful creator of everything yet he can't stop bad things from happening. If he truly was a loving God, he would just have created everyone in heaven and skip this Earth thing. Even if the story wasn't bullshit, that just means God created you for the sole purpose of worshiping him. What an asshole.
    Did you ever hear of stories of people who got all of their affairs in order before they died? Told all their loved ones
    they loved them out of the blue before they died? Not people who have cancer and know their fate before hand, but
    of young healthy people full of life.

    When you come to earth, you know how violent it is and come anyway.

    Sorta like when Trump told that grieving widow he knew what he signed up for. That's the same coming to earth.

    When you come here, you pretty much know how and when you will die. Ever watch that show 1,000 ways to die?
    Some weird ass ways that's for sure.

    If you take away the horror of people dying and turn that horror into knowing that's how those people wanted to die,
    you will feel better about it. After seeing how people react after a tragedy shows how resilient we truly are.

    You forgot the burning bush Big D

    The reason He gave his son is to take the place of the sacrificial lamb of the Old testament (Old law) and make way for man to enter heaven by accepting Him

    Your second question of why didn't he create us in heaven is because God wanted sons and daughters and not robots

    He basically created a family with unconditional love just like He has unconditional love and not push button love if you will

    He did not create us for the sole purpose of worshiping Him just like you wold not have kids for the sole purpose of worshiping you

    I understand your questions as most people have these same questions but they can be answered

    Take care man and I hope you increase your understanding

    all knowing, creator of everything.... just can't seem to manage a checkbook.....

    i hope every fukker that ever collected a dime with the whole "God needs your money" premise, or that of "donate to God to ensure you're on the pathway to heaven" burns in hell......

    It is sad that corruption does exist inside the church

    The answer is God does not need money

    Come Sunday, there will be a lot of christians sitting in church pews asking the tough questions about gods existence. I have a feeling the lightbulb will go off for a few. Church attendance will be down worldwide by new years

    I'm guessing the opposite. Like islam, christians like dying for their god.

    Couldn't be farther from the truth. In fact, church attendance will increase and faith increases during time of sorrow and need. It's how we roll. Fight evil with good.

    No, they picked the right God. They live in glory today because of it.

    I think you need to increase your understanding of God.

    Merry Christmas everyone

    This is not a Christmas song but one of the most beautifully sung songs I've ever heard sang

    Just listen and reflect on your life and God will respond and lead

    Because God gave everyone free will to make choices. He realizes jumping was a much less painful option than burning, not holding this type of suicide against them, & greeted them in Heaven upon impact.

    If I was trapped in the wtc, would have went out in style with a 34.5 somersault in pike position due to my diving experience. Although it should be mandatory for employers to give employees working in high rises a parachute to keep in their office, this would have saved many lives if corporate America wasn't so greedy & really cared about their employees.

    All is well guys, I said I was backing away some time ago ... I do check in here from time to time to see what’s going on. I just don’t have anything else to say, if someone made it to a cross road in life, find a pastor. Don’t come here for sermons, go find a church is my advice.

    I love all of you and hope you make the right decsions... life is to important and eternity is a long time.

    Have a Blessed Christmas and a Awesome New Year!

    The religious flaw of convenient interpretation rears its head again. Suicide is suicide. It doesn't matter whether you jump from a building, blow your brains out with a shotgun or strap a bomb to yourself. By definition it's still suicide: the act or an instance of taking one's own life voluntarily and intentionally. As for "a much less painful option"...isn't that usually why people commit suicide in the first place? They come to the realization (no matter how wrong it is) that it would be "a much less painful option" than to go on living. The jumpers obviously lost all faith that there was even a glimmer of hope that they might be rescued and chose suicide. I'm sure those that believed in a textbook-bible version of god prayed to be saved, but were not. What a let down in a pivotal moment.

    Also, you should write your congressman about your parachute idea.
