Besides the usual Pascal’s Wager.
Don’t worry, since Jesus didn’t exist.
Just like you mother gave you life so the death of Jesus will do the same thing of you take in knowledge of him and his Father Jehovah. A lot of time people don’t have a accurate knowledge of the important of everyday life, You breathed the breath of life every day Jesus Father give you that gift because of his son. You can have a close relationship with God and He will listen to you prayer if you say in Jesus name amen. Through The death of Jesus you can have everlasting life if you believe in and if you show that you love him.
The only-begotten Son of God, the only Son produced by Jehovah alone. This Son is the firstborn of all creation. By means of him all other things in heaven and on earth were created. He is the second-greatest personage in the universe. It is this Son whom Jehovah sent to the earth to give his life as a ransom for mankind, thus opening the way to eternal life for those of Adam’s offspring who would exercise faith. This same Son, restored to heavenly glory, now rules as King, with authority to destroy all the wicked and to carry out his Father’s original purpose for the earth. The Hebrew form of the name Jesus means “Jehovah Is Salvation”; Christ is the equivalent of the Hebrew Ma·shiʹach (Messiah), meaning “Anointed One.”
Is believing in Jesus Christ all that is required for salvation?
Acts 16:30-32, RS: “‘Men, what must I do to be saved?’ And they [Paul and Silas] said, ‘Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved, you and your household.’ And they spoke the word of the Lord [“God,” NAB, also JB and NE footnotes; “God’s message,” AT] to him and to all that were in his house.” (Was that man’s ‘believing in the Lord Jesus’ just a matter of his saying sincerely that he believed? Paul showed that more was required—namely, knowledge and acceptance of the Word of God, as Paul and Silas now proceeded to preach it to the jailer. Would a person’s belief in Jesus be genuine if he did not worship the God whom Jesus worshiped, if he did not apply what Jesus taught as to the kind of persons his disciples should be, or if he did not do the work that Jesus commanded his followers to perform? We cannot earn salvation; it is possible only on the basis of faith in the value of the sacrifice of Jesus’ human life. But our lives must be consistent with the faith that we profess, even though that may involve hardship. At Matthew 10:22 [RS] Jesus said: “He who endures to the end will be saved.”) HOPE THIS WILL HELP YOU

When you get your just reward for behaving as a natural individual THEN in the after-life you might appreciate what Jesus did for you .
You really do have to care. You have the option to accept a gift or refuse it. John 3:16 “For God loved the world so much that he gave his only-begotten Son,+ so that everyone exercising faith in him might not be destroyed but have everlasting life. His gift is not automatically for everyone. If you notice it is for those exercising faith in Christ. So you don’t to worry about accepting it. But there is one draw back.
36 The one who exercises faith in the Son has everlasting life;+ the one who disobeys the Son will not see life,+ but the wrath of God remains upon him.+
I really can’t figure out why anyone thinks that story is relevant in any way to anything.
Because he loved you and was willing to offer himself up so that you wouldn’t go to Hell.
You don’t believe he existed to begin with, you troll!
I don’t see why you care about someone who never existed?
This IS what YOU believe, isn’t it?
I’m NOT talking about MY beliefs-I’m talking about YOURS!
There are many reasons why some are drawn to God, attracted to His Word, the Bible, or are curious about God’s followers, but the one that holds the most weight is the hope for our salvation. Salvation from what? from who? and when? The Bible answers those questions in much detail but for starters, it’s easy to understand a couple basic things that Jesus’ sacrificial death can mean for us. Despite our sinful condition, we can enjoy priceless blessings because of the ransom. Consider these three present and future blessings:
The forgiveness of sins. Because of inherited imperfection, we have a real struggle to do what is right. All of us sin either in word or in deed. But by means of Jesus’ ransom sacrifice, we can receive “the forgiveness of our sins.” (Colossians 1:13, 14) To gain that forgiveness, however, we must be truly repentant. We must also humbly appeal to Jehovah, asking his forgiveness on the basis of our faith in the ransom sacrifice of his Son.—Read 1 John 1:8, 9.
A clean conscience before God. A guilty conscience can easily lead to hopelessness and make us feel worthless. Through the forgiveness made possible by the ransom, though, Jehovah kindly enables us to worship him with a clean conscience despite our imperfection. (Hebrews 9:13, 14) This makes it possible for us to have freeness of speech with Jehovah. Therefore, we can freely approach him in prayer. (Hebrews 4:14-16) Maintaining a clean conscience gives peace of mind, promotes self-respect, and contributes to happiness.
The hope of everlasting life on a paradise earth. “The wages sin pays is death,” says Romans 6:23. The same verse adds: “But the gift God gives is everlasting life by Christ Jesus our Lord.” In Chapter 3 of this book, we discussed the blessings of the coming earthly Paradise. (Revelation 21:3, 4) All those future blessings, including life everlasting in perfect health, are made possible because Jesus died for us. To receive those blessings, we need to show that we appreciate the gift of the ransom.
Your use of the word ‘supposedly’ is the reason why you do NOT care. Until the reality of the life, death and resurrection of Jesus of Nazareth hits you like a ton of bricks, you will never see any reason to care.
Only the Holy Spirit can awaken you to your immense need to be forgiven by God before YOU die, and how only what the Son of God did in history can provide the legal basis for God doing that. The Holy Spirit convicts people of their sin. Until He convicts you, you will never care and you will remain lost in your sin.
He DIED for YOU and I so that you and I will bee SAVED by the BLOOD of the Son who is PURE AND HOLY
