    1. It is actually a comforting message, since I am pretty sure, if given the opportunity you would not die in place of Hitler willingly for his crimes, or would you?

      Which men are those for whom you would willingly die for?

      1. I don’t think that’s a question one can or should answer in advance. I think one should do what is best for the most people. If I were actually god’s son, and I could suffer a horrible death in order to save mankind — ABSOLUTELY, I would. I think it’s “lights out” after we die, nada, nothing, and I would do it. But, when is a person going to get that opportunity??

        1. Neither do I think that such a question should be answered in advance because I know that each of us have our own reservations and priorities, and no matter what we say here, in reality there may be many different things which might have make a choice other than what we think we made. But my point being, Christ has no reservations on this one. And that is what I was hinting at earlier, that for Christ, all man needed saving, so he died for all.

  1. I am of the opinion that if you don’t believe in human beings, go ahead and build a spaceship, already. We’ve got too much work to do, and we don’t need to spread defeatism towards the species.

        1. In context of theology it only implies that God wanted to save sinners and since they were sinners and unable to repent spiritually, he sent his son. Because as one would agree, that if left to men alone, we might not die for others all the time. Especially if those others contain people who have done horrible wrongs.

          1. John, you seem like the kind of guy that I would much like to have private conservation with. I don’t feel that there would be any getting my point across to you without gesticulation.

            1. I am not a persuasive writer. That’s not my thing. I don’t type fast enough to keep up with my noodle.

              What do you mean, I’m welcome to? Where in the world are you?

            2. I meant you are welcome to engage in conversation, anytime you like.

              By the way, Im in Pakistan.

              Just on a side note, your English is excellent and for someone like me who learnt English in school, you always have a word or two for my vocab addition. 🙂
