The answer is easy.  When you die you would die forever, be gone that's IT, over for you.  The wages of sin (which we all have) are DEATH.  So we needed someone with OUT SIN that would be the ONLY way, someone had to have NO SIN, (The son of God) to die for ours.  More or less paid the price for US and he was the only one that COULD, (he WON over death).  Now when you die you have a chance to get to this eternity.  Why  would you care? Because listen it has to be great!  We know not much of it but it has to be SOMETHING UNREAL AND WONDERFUL for God to send his only son to die a horrid death so that we might experience it.  So your choice is, die when die forever, be as if you never existed, or live forever in this place that must be AWESOME, so awesome we can't even imagine it in our minds.  That's it , nothing hard about it!  GOD LOVES US THAT MUCH!

WIthout Jesus we wouldn't get a chance to everlasting life, God gave us a passage to Heaven and that's through Jesus, Jesus sacrificed himself to save whomever was born of this world, He is awesome!!!

I don't mean to be simple minded but I don't understand this, in a sense that we don't have the opportunity to go to heaven because Gods' son didn't get sacraficed?

How is this right?

Well God saw that the world was so full of sin, sin leads to be perished (forever tormented in hell) so He manifested himself a son through Mary, that this beautiful creation would be the one who would be the worlds Saviour, He took all sufferings for each and every person on earth, so we could make Heaven our home. He did this because he has unmeasurable love, he was willing to do anything and everything , right to death. But Praise GOD!! Jesus rose from the dead like he said he would!!

I am aware that he did die for (our) sins but why would everyone else have to suffer just because Jesus didn't die.

I am in my 3rd week of Alpha course here in the UK. Last nights discussion was about 'Why did Jesus have to die'. The answer was simply put 'to take all of our sins. He died for us. He died for you'

Thats not enough for me. Its a simple answer. I need more. I put my question to them. What would have happened if Jesus had not died. No one was able to answer me. Surely it would be easier to say 'If Jesus did not die then ABC would have happened and because he died that no longer happens'. One person said that if Jesus had not died then we would live in a world of Sin. Do we not now live in a world of Sin?

Many would say that we would be lost forever, but from my studies of the Old Testament, we would be required (to be forgiven) to give sacrifices.

I believe this is true and is very interesting....

But I find it hard to believe that we are the blame.

Humanity would be still "lost at sea" so to speak. Our goal into accepting Jesus is not to get to heave to escape the troubles of this life. Heaven is just the "desert" in a way...um...say for instance, you gave your heart over to God, then three months later you died, then you'd go to heaven. Now 4 the rest of us christians, we have to fulfill what Jesus had us to do in the beginning, 'Have dominion over the earth'. Right now, the world is in judgment and most (if not all) of the christians are under that same judgment as are the sinners. We can't escape our destiny by preaching a false religion about going to heaven. If going to heaven was r main mission, then God would have done one of the two things: (1). He would have made us all in heaven so He wouldn't waste His time making the earth. (2). He'd go through the process of making the earth and everything and then once we accept Him has our Saviour and Lord, He'd strike us dead right then and there. There would be more deaths than we could count. When Jesus said to keep your mind on things above, he didn't mean to keep your mind on heaven and going there, its something much, much deeper than that. Worshipping Him! So, keep your minds off of heaven and look at what's happening on earth. God doesn't need you in heaven, He needs you on earth! WAKE THE HECK UP! What r you going to do in heaven besides worship Jesus all day? Peace out

We would all suffer.  It is not difficult to understand.  Jesus died to save us.  Yes Greentree7  you would try to save your son but Jesus was not only God's son he was all our saviour.  Your son (is a gift from God) is NOT our SAVIOUR he is your son.  Next question, why did God allow us to kill his son, God is good, God is great, we are all sinners.  I thank  God, he is great enough and powerful enough, big enough.  He already new that we are all sinners.

Jesus Christ was ( is ) a "Gift" from God to all of  man-kind.   Jesus not only died physically on the cross, ...He died spiritually.    While Jesus hung there,  God the Father reached back in time and took the spiritual death that had been generated by Adam and those who came after him and placed it on Jesus Christ.  Then ( because He created time and lives outside of it ) God looked forward in time and took all the spiritual death generated by you and me and all the other men and women who will be born until the end of time, and put that death on Jesus too.   Now you can see why Jesus cried,  "My God, My God, why hast thou forsaken Me?"  He was experiencing to the fullest, the spiritual death generated by countless men and women throughout the ages.  He literally experienced spiritual "Hell" on the cross.

It seems you've already made up your mind. In this case, it does matter that Jesus died for you. The reason being, so that you can continue to make the choice NOT to believe. Because well, it's still a choice. Without The Christ dying, to choose "yes" if He didn't die then we'd be forced into doing repetitious sacrificial animal slaughterings for a God that didn't ever forgive the first mistake Human kind made, by disobeying one simple request. Don't eat of one tree. We had the world, yet we ate of the one tree that separated us from the perfection we once had in God. I hope you understand the "Why" in why Jesus Christ died for you, and then once you realize the truth of being the last sacrifice we have to make, other than making a simple choice. It's always been about a choice. From the beginning to the end, it'll be about the same thing. A choice. It's simple. It's okay to believe, and it's okay NOT to believe. There will be consequences both ways. Take it or leave it.

The world would have been a much better place than the hell Jesus has created on this earth and Paul would have never been a slave for Jesus who had the father send the holy spirit which actually hi-jacks your own emotions with displacing your love for yourself and giving it too an evil God!

The bible doesn't' support eternal torment as some have mentioned (and its a complete misguided view). It says they will be burnt to ashes on judgment day in the same manner as Sodom and Gomorrah. See
2 Peter 2:9
The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations, and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished:

Matthew 13:40-42,
40so shall it be in the end of this world.
41 The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity;
42 And shall cast them into a furnace of fire.

John 12:48
There is a judge for the one who rejects me and does not accept my words; the very words I have spoken will condemn them at the last day.

Revelation 20:9,
They (the wicked) marched across the breadth of the earth and surrounded the camp of God's people, the city he loves. But fire came down from heaven and devoured them.

2 Peter 3:10,
10 But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night, in which the heavens will pass away with a great noise, and the elements will melt with fervent heat; both the earth and the works that are in it will be burned up.

Malachi 4
1 For, behold, the day cometh, that shall burn as an oven; and all the proud, yea, and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble: And the day that cometh shall burn them up, saith the Lord of hosts, that it shall leave them neither root nor branch. 3 3 And ye shall tread down the wicked; for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet in the day that I shall do this, saith the Lord of hosts.

Isaiah 47:14,
Behold, they shall be as stubble; the fire shall burn them; they shall not deliver themselves from the power of the flame: There shall not be a coal to warm at, nor fire to sit before it. (there won't be a coal or fire after the unsaved are destroyed, after the fire cleanses the earth, than God will recreate the earth brand new)

Revelation 21:1,
Then I saw "a new heaven and a new earth," for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away.

Jude 7,
7 In a similar way, Sodom and Gomorrah and the surrounding towns gave themselves up to sexual immorality and perversion. They serve as an example of those who suffer the punishment of eternal fire. (the fire itself isn't eternal but the effects of the fire are, Eternal death/destruction by fire, Fire that destroys forever.)

2 Peter 2:6.
if he condemned the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah by burning them to ashes, and made them an example of what is going to happen to the ungodly.

Genesis 19:24> compare to Revelation 20:9,
Then the LORD rained down burning sulfur on Sodom and Gomorrah--from the LORD out of the heavens.

As for Revelation 20:10 where it says they will be tormented "forever".. The word "forever" comes from the word "eons" which could mean a limited or an unlimited period of time.. In the King James version, there are 56 connections where the word "forever" means a limited period of time.. One good example would be Jonah and the giant fish, Jonah said "i went down to the bottoms of the mountains, and the earth and her bars was about me forever" he wasn't in the fish forever but a limited period of time of 3 days and 3 nights.

Were not all to blame... WHY WOULDN'T WE BE HERE?
