The Usefulness of  Attachment to Jesus

Is it not true that if,
as I proclaim,
 my reason for
desiring a relationship
with anyone through whom
good God on high
defeated death
is principally the cold self serving,
 selfish  one
 that I be granted the fulfillment of
my frightened wish to stay alive eternally
I do not love that Jewish  “savior”
 for his sake
but more, much more,  for mine?

Author's Note
The inspIraition for this is J-Z's unfocused, syntactically puzzling, and theologically ill -informed (God, not Jesus, defeated death according to the NT) "The Man Who Defeated Death".
