Jesus is a spiritual son of God not a physical son. It seems you don't understand the things of the spirit. Is Isreal not God's son?

Isn’t it so he could kill him as a human sacrifice to compensate for the times that humans, who he made, broke rules that he invented and were due to be burnt in a lake of sulphur for eternity even though that’s a pretty harsh punishment for building a statue or telling a lie.

You have been here long enough to have evolved your thinking and separate the beliefs of the poor from the understanding of beginning at the beginning and working to the end unless you are like those who speak as a child and think as a child and understand as a child and never put away childish things and grow up. You might argue there is no God, but the Word is likely the oldest text you've read to date if you read it at all so instead of bothering with the understanding of others, perhaps wiser is to consider your own understanding instead of moon pointing.

God never asked anyone to do as you say above. What is written very early in the book in fact so you won't miss it if you got bored and couldn't work your way to the end, is:

And God blessed them, and God said unto them, “Be fruitful and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it; and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.

State what you understand it suggests.

The only thing you need is PATIENCE, there is God and there are people truly worshiping him in spirit and truth as his special people, but you need to take things easy before you can understand all of these.
Your manner of approach matters a lot in this case! smiley

When i saw your pics on the profile you look like an innocent gentle dove, you ask a question and for sure you are eager to get a response from some intelligent individual. But the first thing you should consider is
what business have i got with religious Nairalanders for them to pick interest in my quest?
Because if your question is of no interest to them it will remain in your heart unanswered. So if you truthfully want to help people gain knowledge and insight know that they're not begging for it nor do they feel any need of it, it's your manner of approach that will interest them and make them feel like getting more from you.
That's why a first century Jewish teacher said to his friends "come after me and i'll make you fishers of men" {Matthew 4:19} the fisher use bait to catch the fish, a professional fisher will not pose a threat to the fish and expect to catch one. Your questions might seem so important to you but how does it sound to the common religionsist?
That's what i'm saying! smiley

And what does your Bible verse have to do with Christians saying Jesus is the son of God and simultaneously God himself at the same time?

Are you ok?

Ok. God needed someone to take away the sins of the world but non qualified for such task. So he had to come himself in the person of JESUS whom he later proclaimed His son to carry out the mission.

So, stop being confused.

Christianity isn't all about arguement, you're free to hold onto whatever you feel is OK for you. Jesus sent his followers out in search for the lost sheep of the house of Israel, this means they're to observe each person to be certain of your disposition, if you don't feel the need for guidance then there is no need wasting their time with you.
The sheep is a domestic pet always in need of someone to lead it unlike the goat this one doesn't feel any need for headship.
The Man Jesus is not for all kinds of human rather he is for the humble and obedient ones, so if you're not humble and obedient you can never find peace in Christianity!

Dissociative identity disorder (DID), previously known as multiple personality disorder (MPD), is a mental disorder characterized by the maintenance of at least two distinct and relatively enduring personality states. Each may have a unique name, personal history, and characteristics. Treatment is talk therapy. So when Christians pray, they are trying to heal the mental disorder of their god through talk therapy. It involves a lot of cajoling and praise because the dude is crazy.

Did God not send Jonah to Nineveh? When they repented ,did he not forgive them ? Yes or No?

When did he say he needed somebody to die for another person sins? Is that even right in your eyes..since you where born,have you ever seen somebody sent to prison for another persons crime , so if it does not work with humans, why did you think it will work with God ?

Same as 2+2=3 has anything to do with properly done Mathematics.

Smart people would pick up the book and read it themselves instead of listening to the opinions of others who might not have read it themselves or do not understand it like you might.

No. You read it in a book and believe what you read though neither God nor Jonah wrote it. Or did God send you a memo saying "I forgive the people of Nineveh"?

You should be smarter than this my friend, do you really know what a person meant when he/she publicly refer to someone as "my son"?
Do you think it's just about biological means that a person could declare another as "son"?

Come on, it means a lot more than that!

God's son simply means all the attributes in God that humans can't perceive could be easily observed in the way and manner Jesus deal with issues, that's what it means.

Your own boss can declare before all other staff that you are his son, it simply means you're always prepared to work for him come what may so if anyone wants to know something about the boss's disposition on any issue they can just walk up to you and ask. That's what it means.
