Ultimately that's something Christians should be answering.
Looking back at myself as a Christian, I don't think I ever did. Couldn't really get into the religion beyond what I had been told was true, and the whole "believe in this or else" threat. Overall I got the impression that fear was a lot more important than love. At this time I would say that there isn't really that much love in the religion. The people are the ones who care. They've been conditioned to see their beliefs and their god as critical to how they live their lives, and so they think that it's because of their beliefs that they care.
I certainly don't see anything loving about sacrificing children, or sacrificing anyone for something that you're responsible for and can solve without harming anyone.
Nor do I see sacrificing yourself as meaningful, if you could accomplish whatever it was that you were trying to without doing that. How about not condemning people for the sins of their ancestors? How about not condemning people for being regular people who never harmed anyone (beyond stupid acts where a simple apology to the actual person they harmed will do)? How about leaving it up to human justice systems, since your non-interventionist scheme doesn't come into effect in life anyway?
I think we listen to a lot of the same podcasts.
