Compare the ethical behavior of Zeus with the ethical teaching of Jesus. According to Wikipedia “Zeus (Ζεύς) is the sky and thunder god in ancient Greek religion, who rules as king of the gods on Mount Olympus. His name is cognate with the first element of his Roman Equivalent Jupiter. His mythology and powers are similar, though not identical, to those of Indo-European deities such as Jupiter, Perkunas, Perun, Indra, Dyaus, and Zoiz” So basically Zeus is the most powerful god of the Greeks. He is very powerful and ruthless. He was not someone that you would want to be around. To the Greeks it was make the gods happy or else they would bring you bad sanctions, but if you didn’t make Zeus happy your pretty much dead. 

While Jesus teaches us that we are all loved and have a chance to make it to Heaven. We need to admit that we are sinners, believe that Jesus died for us, then confess Him as Lord. After we believe in him we need to Stop doing all the bad stuff we wee doing then do what God wants us to do.

Romans 3:23 ” For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, 24 and all are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus.”

Romans 5:8 “But God demonstrates his own love for us in this While we were still sinners Christ died for us”

Romans 6:23 “For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus our Lord.

Acts 5:8 “Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved”

John 3:16 “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”

I know that the better choice of these two is Jesus.
