Which is More Honerable, Jesus or You answering for your life?

    I do not believe the bible or religion. I believe Jesus was possibly a mistake from a guilty mind. Which is more honerable, having Jesus answer for how you live or You answering for how you lived your life? Which would hold people more accountable for their personal actions, saying the individual will pay the price in the end or saying someone else "Jesus" already died for their wrong doings? If I screw up, I find it much more honerable to answer for my actions than to expect someone else to pay for my actions.

      Some people find it comforting to believe that Jesus died for our sins.  I find it more realistic to practice a more pro-active type of living.  Instead of thinking, "oh, I will be forgiven if I repent", I prefer to consider the repurcussions of my actions in advance.  It is necessary to "police" ourselves in order to lead  productive and happy lives.  I try to be a good person, and I do not leave it up to deity to forgive me.  I try not to need to be forgiven, if that is the correct phrase.  I have respect for devout Christians, and I have respect for the story of Jesus.  The gospels are inspiring.  They should make people want to strive to be good people.  Religion, itself, has mutated into an entity that strives to govern its followers.  I prefer to answer, honestly, for my own shortcomings.

        Excellent Respectful post, Thank You for leading off with a great example. Very honerable answer you gave in my opinion. I feel the same. I think possibly everyone would be more responsible if they relied more on themselves than a religion. Thank You

    Marinealways24, I would like to post a link to one of your hubs in my hub "Why I am Not Going to Heaven".  I would like to ask your permission first.  Is that okay with you?

        I think it is a great correlation to my hub, so I think if people read my hub, they would be interested in yours.  The traffic for my hub hasn't been too bad.
