If Jesus died for our sins and we don't sin, did Jesus die for nothing?

Jesus died to pay the eternal penalty of our sins.

We still sin, but at the end there are two options: eternal death or eternal life. Before Jesus’ death there was only eternal death.
Jesus died to stop the eternal separation and death with the ultimate purpose of getting rid of sin forever. (Romans 6:9, 2 Timothy 1:10, Hebrews 9:26)

Jesus died for us... and I don’t consider myself as ‘nothing’.

Well, I'm an atheist so there really is no point to me saying all this other than to snicker at the foolishness that is religion. If you need me I'll be sinning.

So Jesus let himself die for my sins? Well, I wasn't even alive back then, therefore, this is impossible. ALSO, if Jesus let himself die, that is basically suicide, wich is a sin... so HE is in hell right now? oooooh, you learn something new every day then!
Oh, and if Jesus loves everyone, yet if you don't believe in him, you burn in an eternal fiery pit of doom... well I wouldn't call that love :O Infact, that's downright hateful! But if Jesus hates people, then that is ANOTHER sin that would sent him to hell! Riveting, just absolutely riveting!

All ‘topics’ you mentioned require more than a short comment to be fully explained, but since you’re not taking this too seriously’ I’ll be as direct and brief as possible.

Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned: ~ Romans 5:12

Because of that first sin everyone (including Adam and his future generations) was condemned to die. Because the wages of sin is death(Romans 6:23). So Jesus died to give us (everyone born in this sinful world, including you) a second chance of an eternal –sinless— life without suffering and death.

Definition of suicide according to the dictionary: a person who intentionally takes his or her own life.And sacrifice is defined as: to surrender or give up, or permit injury or disadvantage to, for the sake of something else.

If we go by that meaning, Jesus didn’t kill Himself. He sacrificed Himself for humanity’s sake.

Regarding hell… My views of hell & death are very different from other religions so the argument that you used doesn’t work with me… I believe that when you die you just rot in the ground (Genesis 3:19) and since Jesus is not dead (Acts 2:32) and he is not a sinner, he can’t be in that ‘hell’ you just mentioned.

Jesus loves everyone, that’s a fact. God is love (1 Juan 4:8) but He is also consuming fire (Hebrews 12:29). And He wants to ‘put away sin’ (Hebrews 9:26, 1 John 3:8). So it’ll be just that He rewards us by what we did (Revelation 22:12). Those who didn’t repent and walk away from sin will perish forever and those who stood firm and weren’t deceived by the temptations of the devil will live eternally with Him.

And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.~ Revelation 21:4

Happy new year ^^

The whole religion lesson was un-necessary for three reasons: I was joking when I wrote that comment (and you actually took it seriously), I grew up in a very Christian family (so I am not absolutely ignorant, like you make me out to be), and I don't believe a word the Bible says. I love it when Christians like you can't provide an adequate argument, so you decide to defend your beliefs with a book stating exactly what the other person has seen a flaw in in the first place. You copy and paste quote from the Bible, almost expecting it to completely change my mind, because all of a sudden, the Bible is the one and only lawbook of the universe, that everyone should believe in and obey.

One question, if Jesus loves everyone, yet at some point there is going to be an apocalypse and he is only going to save his devouted followers and bring them to heaven with him, then what about the other people he "loves"? Hmmm?

I knew you weren’t taking it seriously... because I read one of your artist’s comments that said “I find it entertaining how so many people can actually believe in the bible and God. So I always get a good laugh out of church sermons”... so I thought that you probably would also get a ‘good laugh’ out of what I would say... But I also thought that it would be kinda rude not to answer your comment... so I replied anyway ^^

I defend my views with the bible, because it is my foundation, I believe it is infallible and it’s the word of God. I know that you don’t believe the bible is infallible, but if I have to defend my views I have to defend them using my foundation and not yours... (Imagine asking an evolution scientist to explain evolution using the bible instead of his science books...it wouldn’t make sense).

And I wasn’t trying to change your mind or anything. I know that you don’t believe and I respect that, I was just telling you ‘why’ & ‘what’ I believe, even if it was just a brief ‘explanation’ ^^

Regarding your question... I view it like what a parent would do if one of his children did something bad… even if the parent love his child he needs to punish him. God didn’t destroyed Adam and Eve when they sinned… nor He destroyed satan when he rebelled. It would have been more much easier… but it wouldn’t have been just. He gave Adam and Eve a second chance to amend their sin, and He let us live so we could also have that chance. At the end we cannot say that He didn’t gave us an opportunity, we will have to confront the consequences of our decisions. And as much as He loves us He has to keep His word and destroy sin forever. (He is love, but He is also just and truthful)

But only He knows who will be saved, because He is the only one that knows our hearts(1 Kings 8:39); and not everyone that ‘believes’ in Him will be saved. Because only believing in God won’t save you (Mathew 7:21) Even the devils believe, but they will not be saved. (James 2:19)… so you’ll be surprise that not all those supposedly ‘devoted’ Christians will be saved.

May I have some proof? Just asking. It is good to see that DA is balanced, however.

Nilopher Featured By Owner Oct 2, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
Woops! Sorry for this late reply ^^; (I hope you don’t mind)

About proof. What is enough proof to me may be useless to you. For example I have enough proof with: my everyday life, because God is always helping me. The blessings I receive. My answered prayers. The miracles I witness. When you see how even the demons fear God’s power. Etc. That is something I’ve experienced myself… and to serve as proof to you you’ll need to experience something similar.

But for more proof we have the bible.

Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me. ~ John 5:39

The Bible is the word of God. Yes, it was written by men, but those men were inspired by God. (2 Samuel 23:2, Gal 1:12, 1 Thess. 2:13, 1 Cor. 14:37)

The book is nearly 4,000 years old and it tells us how to have a healthy diet. Tells us we should circumcise the baby when he is 8 days old. Medical science has discovered that the eighth day is the only day in the entire life of the newborn that the blood clotting element prothrombin is above 100%. It says that when dealing with disease hands should be washed under running water. Up until 100 years ago doctors washed their hands in a basin of still water, resulting in the death of multitudes. It tells us about the weight of the wind. And the fact that air has weight was proven scientifically only about 300 years ago. A book that has always say that the earth was round and not flat etc etc.

God even used the bible to predict the future.

To me the complexity of the human body, the world, the universe etc serves as proof too.

Sorry the comment it’s long ^^; I normally get carried away with these kind of things… I could go on for hours. lol
