NOTES: At least one reference for "The Holy Bible said it's true My God died for me and you" is 2 Corinthians 5:14-15 (King James): "For the love of Christ constraineth us; because we thus judge, that if one died for all, then all were dead: And that he died for all, that they which live should not henceforth live unto themselves, but unto him which died for them, and rose again." - BS
Similarly Romans 6:10, "For in that he died, he died unto sin once: but in that he liveth, he liveth unto God" (KJV)/"The death he died, he died to sin, once for all; but the life he lives, he lives to God" (New Revised Standard Version). This is the basis of the doctrine of the Atonement, and is common both in the New Testament and in Christian theological writings. - RBW
