Gods can't die

In Stargate, they spend a lot of time fighting against false 'gods', and trying to persuade the people they have enslaved that they are not gods at all. Rightly so.

One of the things that sometimes convinces them is that a god can't be tortured, suffer fear or pain; and a god can't die.

Big problem with that argument - the real God was, and the real God did!

Of course, there were two huge differences. As he said, 'I lay down my life - only to take it up again. No one takes it from me, but I lay it down of my own accord. I have authority to lay it down and authority to take it up again.'*

I'm glad my God chose to die. I'm glad 'it was impossible for death to keep its hold on him'.**
