Are christians sad Jesus died?
or happy that he did. Personally I would feel massively shithouse if someone died for me. I wouldn't want to celebrate it at all. It would make me all guilty and ashamed. They seem to think it is amazing and special.

Not that it really matters because he never existed to start with but it is kind of sick to glorify someone dying.

The ones I've encountered seem pretty thrilled by the whole affair. But he did rise again...apparently...so that may account for their cheeriness on the subject.

Christianity is a death cult.

I am not kidding. A better description is Christianity is an apocalyptic death cult.

Make no mistake.

Are there any tax cults? Then both things we cannot avoid would be covered. Smile

If I was a christian I would be more pissed off with the fact that he came back. All very well making the ultimate sacrifice and dying for our sins, but doing so in the knowledge that your gonna come back ..... mmmmm.

As far as I can tell they are happy that he died and rose from the dead.

They are told this was a good thing and they should be happy about it. Most never think beyond that.

Sad sometimes, guilty and shamed often.

Give me your argument in the form of a published paper, and then we can start to talk.

In all seriousness, they're sad that he died, but far happier that he rose. Maundy Thursday and Good Friday services are very solemn affairs (at least at the Lutheran church I used to attend). Then, on Easter, they can't stop yelling "He is risen! He is risen indeed! Hallelujah!", for like, twenty minutes.

Even when I used to believe, these services were off-putting to me.

No, man, see that's the genius. He got to have his cake and eat it too! He sacrificed himself and then came back. He tricked God while simultaneously being God! He send himself to be killed to appease himself and then after he was appeased, he came back!

Jesus is the ultimate con artist.
