All the sincerest of thoughtful responses are welcomed (at any length, at any juncture, through any conjecture whether theo-philosophically, Biblically, historical references, a combination of things, etc.). I think Lane makes some agreeable points and his ability to leverage Christ’s death vs other contemporarily ancient records of altruism (that were just as well known as the Crucifixion/Atonement) helps us to see the how heavily Christ’s fatal suffering weighs in qualitative and qualitative value on the Libra scale of any other death in the 1st century (and by extension, in all of human history.)
Also @JasonPratt, I want to say personally and publicly that I pray God will bless you for your tremendous work, not even necessarily for Evangelical Universalism, but just in general for your principle apologetic offense and defense (and dialogue) for/of the Faith both in and outside of the Wondering Pilgrims via Evangelical Universalist platform via YouTube via Google Hangouts (via ad infinitum lol). I also want to consult not only your thoughts be they brief or lengthy, but also ask whether or not this is topically in the right forum category. Thanks again.
With & in Agape,
