Re: Is it egotistical to think that a God would die for you?

All forms of life, plant and animal are related, and fundamentally, there is nothing that differentiates mankind from any of them, so to give God human qualities must certainly qualify as the highest form of arrogance.

Not out of the ordinary, but quite stupid. I do not think so and will tell you why when you tell us why you think it stupid.
