I’m curious why we owe God anything. I can kind of understand the reasoning behind the answer “because he made is” but… We never chose to exist or come into this world. It’s not really our choice to be alive most of the time. Life is full of suffering and often burdensome and who else can you blame but God who made everything.
More than that though, I don’t understand why we owe God anything or should even be grateful that he died on the cross. Its not my fault I’m born with original Sin and need saving . God allowed that to be the case and if he allows that, if he is not evil, he must make it possible for us to not go to hell forever. It would be evil to create humans knowing they would be condemned to hell forever with no chance of being happy. That seems like common sense and no special gift or goodness on his part. Then the fact he chose a painful way to go… Well that was entirely his choice and I should not owe God more because he chose a more painful way to “save us”. I don’t get why we act like we need so much saving because we are sinners as if it’s all or fault. While we have some.contrpl per our actions we are inclined to sin because God made with the inclination to sin. Nor does it make sense to me to be constantly blaming that on Adam and Eve. Yes they sinned, but it was God who passed that down to us. It was God who allowed them to be tempted even though he knew they would fall. It almost seems selfish on God’s part to seek out a more painful death to win over more gratitude and love as if his sacrifice was so much bigger and we needed that.
Basically why do we owe God for saving us if he made us need saving
