Gentle Jesus?

Jesus explains to us why he speaks in parables. Why... it's to confuse people so they will go to Hell, of course!

Mark 4:11-12
And he said unto them, Unto you it is given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God: but unto them that are without, all these things are done in parables:

That seeing they may see, and not perceive; and hearing they may hear, and not understand; lest at any time they should be converted, and their sins should be forgiven them.

Jesus Christ... what a prick.

Almost without fail, Christians are profoundly impressed and moved by the sacrifice Jesus made for them so that they might know salvation. "Jesus suffered and died for our sins!" they will proclaim with fervent conviction.

The way I see it, simulating suffering, pretending to die and then whisking oneself off to paradise to rule the universe does not really qualify as sacrifice per se.

Jesus Christ... what a prick!
