Why God sent Jesus to earth

Why did the Lord send his son to earth?  I was embarrassed to realize last night that it took me to age 58 to notice how I’d been hoodwinked by the standard narrative.

The line we’re fed is that he did it to help us sinners out, since we can be redeemed through Christ.

And yet if you look at it from God’s point of view, well, let’s face it, in the BC years he was nobody, with just a few Jewish believers.  Sending Jesus down changed that completely, a brilliantly successful advertising ploy.  Jesus made God go viral.
