    Everybody knows that Jesus only healed people in a small (nasty) part of the world.
    He cured a couple of blind, lame, sick and mentally ill people.
    He even raised a couple of people from the dead.
    Even so, that was very good, you might think, but small fry compared to the number he could have healed.

    i wonder why he would have cured them since his father/powers that be in heaven created the very sicknesses that were plagueing them. hmm...

    i get it..good pr campaign. do a little charity, throw them some chump change/miracles and stay on people's good side and keep the sheep ignorant to the fact you are a tyrant and sadist.

    As a human being, his magical power account was limited. Just enough to convert people, not enough to heal everyone so that they didn't care about being converted.

    Jesus was an alcoholic and didn't really pay a lot of attention to the rest of the world.

    He was not there to heal people. He was there to die, to enable almighty god to forgive humans for being human.

    How does sending yourself to Earth to die for the sins of the people you created make any sense? It makes more sense to do some tricks for the masses to ingratiate himself.

    I think a better example of healing would’ve been if Jesus had endured the the whole crucification ordeal as if he were a messianic version of Wolverine. Shrugging off the torture, instantly regenerating flayed flesh, and effortlessly carrying his cross through the streets. He could’ve hung on the cross for days giving sermons to the multitudes. Eventually the Romans would’ve had to accept and document his supremacy, let him go free, and join the Christian movement 300 years early.

    They did not have free health care back in the time of Jesus, as they do today. Therefore, they had fewer hypochondriacs way back when. The number Jesus healed reflected those who were really sick. The lower number, compared to today, had to do with natural selection back then, versus the modern artificial selection which perpetuates and expands sickness, all for money.

    Do you think Jesus would have voted to repeal Obama Care?

    Of course he would. With the likes of Jesus around, who needs healthcare. Got erectile dysfunction, go see Jesus. Got the clap, see Jesus. Need an abortion, see Jesus?

    What about mental states, or, even a bad hair day?

    Yes, because it was poorly planned and was getting way too expensive. Jesus was about perfection, not defective.

    Exactly how did the death of God enable God to forgive humans that he created ?

    If one of my cars is broken as a result of poor driving or poor design, I don't smash up my other (working) car.
    I would then have two cars that don't work !

    Adam was caught stealing an apple.
    This is a small problem.
    Killing Jesus didn't fix it.

    If you think it did, you have lost your moral compass.

    An apple? Please check. And maybe, think. A tiny bit.

    I don't know, if you were running for Congress in a district with a lot of crime, wouldn't you kill one of your kids as atonement for the rest of the district? You might get elected.
