5. I never got this whole "died for my sins" thing
Exactly how does that work? Jesus was executed so I can go to heaven?
Even if one begins with the assumption that God, Jesus & heaven exist and that the bible is more than a compilation of bad fairy tales, it still makes no logical sense.

God being omnipotent could forgive me for whatever sin I committed regardless of what happed to JC. Could it be it's ALL bullshit?
