    Have you read the Old Testament? Since when is human sacrifice lowering his standards?

    off the top of my head i would say that it is rooted in an older(purer) religious dogma like buhdism. that all things are harmonic and in balance and got twisted into perfection for perfection, so far as to filling in variables with gods reincarnating themselves and suffering to atone for us horrible and destructive creatures.

    dear mP...

    you asked: "Why couldnt god simply forgive the so called sin debt"...

    scripture says that the wages of sin is *, while death pays for sin it doesn't forgive sin or populate Gods kingdom.

    God bought those who would believe back from death BY forgiving the sin debt with shed blood (OT and NT) while giving these ones life through or because of the resurrection of Jesus Christ.

    " But concerning the resurrection of the *dead, have you not read what was spoken to you by God, saying, I am the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob’? God is not the God of the dead, but of the living.” matthew 22:31-32

    *the implication of scripture is that the physical death of a man isn't followed by death of the spirit as well.

    Your leader gets put to death, what are you going to do? 'Oh that was part of God's plan'
