If we weren’t so used to hearing the Jesus story, this would sound all sorts of messed up…


I asked Jesus, “How much do you love me?” And Jesus said, “This much.” And he stretched out his arms and died.

Just replace “Jesus” with “Bob” and you get a sense of how absurd this story comes across to atheists.
