I'm so grateful that His death paid the price for our all sins. So grateful that we don't have to pay for our own sins. So happy & grateful that He rose again, and conquered death. So grateful that His loving spirit lives within us to give us hope.

So thankful that we will be with Him forever.

If for some godly event that took all you happy people back to the day of the nailing, would you cheer or weep with seeing this guy dying, who claims to be god, and dying for you and your sins?

Remember there were very few xians around at that time.

There were NO Christians at the time of Christ's earthly ministry. Christianity resulted from Christ's redemptive work on the cross.

Acts 11

19 So then those who were scattered because of the persecution that occurred in connection with Stephen made their way to Phoenicia and Cyprus and Antioch, speaking the word to no one except to Jews alone. 20 But there were some of them, men of Cyprus and Cyrene, who came to Antioch and began speaking to the Greeks also, preaching the Lord Jesus. 21 And the hand of the Lord was with them, and a large number who believed turned to the Lord. 22 The news about them reached the ears of the church at Jerusalem, and they sent Barnabas off to Antioch. 23 Then when he arrived and witnessed the grace of God, he rejoiced and began to encourage them all with resolute heart to remain true to the Lord; 24 for he was a good man, and full of the Holy Spirit and of faith. And considerable numbers were brought to the Lord. 25 And he left for Tarsus to look for Saul; 26 and when he had found him, he brought him to Antioch. And for an entire year they met with the church and taught considerable numbers; and the disciples were first called Christians in Antioch.

Thank you for clarifying that poster's question.

I know I appreciate it.

However, given that I sense what people who frequent the Christianity forum truly want, and it isn't to worship Christ or ask genuine questions, I ask that you please DM the poster directly to answer his question.

I honestly don't want this thread to be derailed. Also, I do get a vibe that it can and will easily go that route if you, I, or anyone else, begins engaging them in certain conversations that are not directly related to the OP.

Thank you .

I appreciate the focus on the thread topic.

The only way that anyone is able to have eternal life is because of his resurrection.

Every time I sin, I thank the Father and Jesus Christ for what They did for me.
