What if Jesus Never Died (Part Two)

If Jesus died for our sins, why are we not ashamed of ourselves that we're still sinning today? When you think of it all, and the fact that he told his enemies who were plotting to kill him that no matter how hard they tried killing him, he would remain alive; one can't stop wondering why are we saying he died for our sins?

Jesus Defied Death

It can't be denied. Jesus defied death. Accepting him as one's personal savior means Judas, The self-righteous Pharisees and everybody who acts against good, alienates and eliminates honest people for their selfish interests, were all defeated. So, let's all join hands and encourage each other to do good for the sake of humanity.

Evil doers may laugh while they make fun of the good and the godly but in the end, they'll have gained enough of nothing but a bluff. No matter how long it may take, good will triumph over evil and the godly will have the last laugh. Wasn't Jesus godly? Would he therefore succumb to evil? How did he therefore get his last laugh?

Wouldn't Die By God's Leave

Knowing that God created all of us, Jesus sat with sinners and embraced all classes. He spent some quality time with one of the lasses, Mary Magdalene. Jesus was such an honorable man. When he got tired, he slept and disturbed nobody. When he was sad and perturbed that he couldn't save them all, he wept. (John 11: 35) As a great man, he did serve instead of being served like we do. He preached love and togetherness. As a team player, he did it with prayer. On his own though, he said he was nothing. (John 5:30) But in God's name, he turned stones into scones and fed the masses. He was kind. He didn't find the need to fabricate a lie to fight anybody. Instead of taking advantage of the blind and stealing their wealth or just a few coins, he restored their sight. He brought 'the dead' back to life. Those around, saw it live. He defeated death alive. All by God's leave. Could such a man be humiliated and killed by evil doers? Not in the name a just God.

Great Deeds, Not Miracles

Why were his people still full of spite and never believed him despite witnessing every great deed he did in God's name? Wasn't it clear; he was born to do this? Why were they stubborn and kept demanding miracles to prove that he was Christ? (Matthew 16:4) Yet when he tried to prove it verbally, they accused him of blasphemy. He knew they wanted to kill him. So why did he tell them; he'd perform only one miracle to prove that he was the Messiah, when that very miracle was actually a slap in their faces and they would be more determined to kill him than ever before?

If we really believe in Jesus, shouldn't we expressly say he nailed that miracle and proved once and for all that he's the Messiah? If we say he didn't but died, are we believers? Wasn't killing him like they did many prophets before him meant to frustrate God's plan? So, as they plotted to kill Jesus, was God idle like an old idol or He planned too? If so, who's a better planner; man or God? Isn't defeating death therefore the only way to restore God's plan? So what miracle did Jesus promise those who doubted his messiahship?

The Sign Of Jonah

"As Jonah was in the stomach of the fish for three days and three nights, so shall the son of man be in the stomach of the earth for three days and three nights." Matthew 12:39-40 see how some eloquent great thinkers try to reason here.

Being swallowed by a fish and ending up in its stomach isn't a miracle nor is it a miracle for a dead person to be buried in the grave. And resurrection? Well, it's just a matter of time that's why Jesus didn't regard it as a miracle. Once buried, viable seeds die, rot then sprout out in a new form. Isn't that proof enough that there's life after death? After all, we've all been promised to rise again one day. And Jesus himself brought Lazarus back to life. (John 11:1-45)

But was Jonah dead when he got swallowed by the big fish? Did he die in its stomach? Was he dead when he came out? In simple English; did Jonah die and rise from the dead? No! If God was with Jonah in the stomach of the fish, was it too difficult for Him to be with Jesus and keep him alive both on the cross and in the grave? So, where is Jesus' miracle if he died on the cross?

Staying Alive

Fulfilling Jonah's miracle therefore can only mean; Jesus would be buried alive. While expected to be dead in the grave, he'd still be alive and like Jonah; within the same time, he'd also come out alive.God is the omnipotent. Nothing is therefore impossible with God. So, why have we chosen our salvation in something that limits His powers? God is the omnipresent. Isn't it clear that God was with Jesus in the grave and kept the prophesied time? God got no memory lapses. When he starts a thing, He keeps time from the beginning to the end. (Isaiah 46:10) So, why don't we accept that Jesus' miracle was fulfilled to the letter?

Are we therefore willingly bowing down to those without faith who regardless of what Jesus might have accomplished their desire was to sabotage him and prove that he had died? Isn't it sad that we're also celebrating that Jesus died? Who are we trying to please? Are we doing it in Christ's name just like we keep killing each other for holding different beliefs?

If we're saved, shouldn't we put our differences aside and focus on things that we agree on? Wouldn't that make us strong believers and live peacefully with one another? Wouldn't that grant all of us freedom of worship wherever we might be? If Jesus died for our sins, wouldn't we be so ashamed that we're still sinning? If Jesus is our personal savior and commander in chief of our lives as we claim, would we still feel so important and superior to others when he was so humble? Think about it!

D in the Darling. I have only just reached this page. Your knowledge, and comprehensive research, are certainly well-worth a second read, and a third! Give me time to digest your intensive writing and I look forward to the 'continuation'. This page should also be submitted to an audience more inclined to 'read, think and respond.', Obviously, this is not apparent on 'Wikinut'. The lack of response on this page is indicative of wasted time spent on valueless comments and rebuttals. I should also admit to engaging in this lack of responsibile participation. Forgive me, D in the Darling. Your appreciative fellow Wikinutter, Ivyevelyn.

Hi Stella,
Thanks for the comment. So, to you Jesus isn't even just The Son of God but God Himself? Wow!!!! Does it mean whenever he said bow down to one else but God your father and my father who is in heaven; Jesus didn't know what he was talking about then?

He rose up in all of those who continue his work, just like Apostle Paul who never met Him in person Paul through His deeds and actions realized that Jesus was performing those miracles through him. 65 years after Jesus died.
