Jesus saved us from what exactly?
- Pirate AM™Lv 72 months agoFavorite Answer
So apparently Adam and Eve sinned and to "cover" their sin and nakedness God had to kill animals to make clothing. Since then God has required blood sacrifices to cover sin, but it wasn't enough and he had to sacrifice his son to himself so that he could forgive us and save us from the eternal torment that he had to condem us to, because he could not forgive us without a sacrifice.
Yep, this doesn't make any sense.

IGNORANCE for one!
I Corinthians 2:6-16
6 "Howbeit we speak wisdom among them that are perfect: yet not the wisdom of this world, nor of the princes of this world, that come to nought:
7 But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory:
8 Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.
9 But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.
10 But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.
11 For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God.
12 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God.
13 Which things also we speak, not in the words which man's wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual.
14 But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.
15 But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man.
16 For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? but we have the mind of Christ. "

Jesus was said to have saved us from sin by dying on the cross. If he didn't do that, all the sinners throughout history would have never been forgiven by God and then sent to heaven.

If you really read between the lines, Jesus offers advice to save us from ourselves. You have to believe and use his advice as one way to avoid a hellish life. His advice is not unique and has lived on long before Jesus was even a thought, so it is more of a reminder rather than anything profoundly new to the scene.
It is only when you look at the stories with magical eyes that it becomes difficult to explain the actual purpose/s of Jesus coherently that can make any kind of rational, reasonable sense, leading to your very question.
The story of Adam and Eve is a story that poorly describes why we have our human nature (original sin) and wants us to believe before eating of the fruit, this nature did not exist. Already we are looking at a lot of nonsense, from how can a human not have human nature to wondering why God was so stupid and must of had no foresight of the doom that was about to unfold.
Jesus is supposed to be the solution to an non-fixable problem (our human nature) and it becomes almost laughable as we watch ego filled christians believe because the problem is not fixable (by humans), that almighty God must fix it with a Godly Son to come down to earth, sprinkle some good advice around and be slain in order to make things with God Himself. What actually changed after the crucifixion of Jesus? Only the mindsets of certain humans who find this to be a rational, reasonable solution to a problem that never actually existed. The most nonsensical part is that it does not rely on the actions of humans but rather leave it up to God to fix His Own problem that He supposedly created in the first place.

GOSPEL saves us to the FATHER'S HOUSE by teaching us the HOUSE RULES: Heaven is the Father's House. Humans learn and teach HOUSE RULES (GOSPEL) enroute to the Father's House. "If you treat others with respect, you can live with me in my house forever: if not, you can go to HELL".

He is the rescuer. Every time humanity falls into a state of despair he reincarnates and intervenes. The last time his intervention gave birth to the Christian Faith, put the Roman Empire in check and changed the whole world. Those that accepted his message are on Top of Humanity right now in terms of prosperity and economic and political stability.
Whenever righteousness wanes and unrighteousness increases I send myself forth.
For the protection of the good and for the destruction of evil,
and for the establishment of righteousness,
I come into being age after age.
— Bhagavad Gita 4.7–8

For those who enter into his covenant, he saves us from sin, death and destruction, from Satan, and from ourselves.
