... and then presumably go and do it.
Well, apparently Jesus would get himself hanged on a cross to absolve the sins of others.
So, Christians, stop talking and let's see some action.
Stop harking on about the sins of others and go and do something about it.
What would Jesus do?

Ouch.

See, the whole "redemption" thing, and especially killing your own son, to absolve other peoples' sins was always probably the creepiest thing in Christianity for me. If I am going to be saved or damned, I want to do it on my own terms and through my own efforts, thank you very much.

Plus it is a bit of a quid pro quo: Sure, Jesus died for your sins, but now you have to pay him back by having utter and absolute faith in him. No such thing as a free lunch or a free trip to heaven, apparently.
My concern with that statement as well....if you take his past example. If someone is thirsty, forget the water, go straight for the wine. The bronze age Ollie Reed.
Actually, wine/beer in place of water was quite common. The stuff you drank when just thirsty, or give to children, would be very weak on alcohol content. But before the advent of water filters or dish detergent with bleach, the alcohol helped keep germs and disease out of what you're drinking.
Wasn't a serious post. Believe me if I was to give a sensible post to this, Ollie Reed wouldn't have popped up.
Gotcha. ;-)
That's why I drink more alcohol when I feel an illness coming, alcohol kills germs.
I would hate my parents, my siblings, my children, and even hate myself.

(Luke 14:26)
Very few Xtians realize that killing one person/animal/vegetable for the redemption of others is a notion that comes right out of the heart and soul of paganism!! That's why I believe that Xtainity does not DERIVE from paganism but is IN FACT a pagan religion itself.
I would kick some merchant's and moneychanger's butts (Matthew Goldman Sachs 21:12-13)

I would curse the fig tree -- because God really hate figs (Mark Stonewall 11:13-14)

I would turn free tap water into expensive bottled water (John Coca-Cola 2:3-10)
I've always thought "What Would Wall-E Do?" was a much better life philosophy.

But Jesus' perfection is confusing. Not only is perfection impossible and abstract, but honestly. If you had the power to heal the sick, wouldn't you?

Oh, the man's a saint! He's using his divine powers!

Awesome.

Given a choice, you would let most of the world's sick suffer in misery but be intensely involved in Sarah Palin's professional life.
