What kind of a sacrifice is that? "I'm going to do you the biggest favor
you can imagine, but if you don't believe in it, then my favor is worthless
and makes anything good that you have ever done in your life a complete
waste of time".
If I were Satan, I would write the Bible exactly as it is, full of horrific
promises and threats that can be interpreted in many ways. It's pretty much
like dropping candy colored hand grenades onto a school playground. The
grenades would say "if anyone tries to take this away from you, then they
deserve whatever happens to them".
