This verse is not as bad as some of the previous ones about cannibalism, curses and murder, this one is John 3:16
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
There are a few things I have to say about this verse. Firstly, what is it with the whole sacrifice deal? Jesus sacrificed himself to himself, to save us from himself. How is that logical? Why couldn’t God just forgive humans? Why did he have to have his son brutally murdered by the people that he was trying to forgive?! And where is the sacrifice part exactly? Jesus was dead for three days and then came back to life – not much of a sacrifice.
And if you love something, you don’t brutally murder your son because of it!
This verse fails to mention the fact that there are several other things that you must do to get into Heaven, which I will be explaining in a blog in seven days time.
