“Death of God’ is a phrase coined by German atheistic philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche. He used this phrase to express his belief that the enlightenment era had made man smart enough that there was no need for any God to govern human affairs.
The truth is, God did die. Some 2,000 years ago, God who became a man, the Lord Jesus Christ, was crucified by Roman soldiers on the hill of Golgotha in Jerusalem. We can say for sure God died. He was buried, but on the third day, He rose again.
The question is, can God die?
We believe that God became man for the purpose of being sacrificed and to shed His sinless pure holy blood for the healing of man’s sin.
But why did this almighty creator God have to become a man? Why did God have to offer Himself as a sacrifice to save mankind?
Since Jesus was born of the Virgin Mary, who like us was part of the sinful human race, how could He have remained without sin?
Jesus was born without a human father and the Scripture says He was born of God. How is that possible? I’m sure questions like these have often come to our minds. In this booklet, the author answers these tough questions while addressing the all-important question of how we, as humans, can live a life of freedom over sin and death.
