This is arguably the core of the Christian faith that Jesus died for our sins and made it possible for us to live for eternity in heaven... but why did Jesus have to die in order for us to have our sins forgiven?

God makes the rules. There is no "God HAD to sacrifice Jesus" because God can do anything.

Christians often say that God cannot let sin go unpunished as it would be unjust; but is it any more just to sacrifice an innocent man on behalf of a guilty man? If a man rapes a little girl and the man's brother offers to go to prison on his behalf, would this be justice?

If god is satisfied by punishment without guilt (Jesus), why is he not satisfied with guilt without punishment?

It takes a very long time to change religious beliefs , even when the evidence , supported by logic , is undeniable. Christians know that the claim , that Christ died for your sins , is NOT true. They , themselves , will tell you that , in order for sins to be forgiven , you , YOURSELF , must first REPENT !

Christ has no power to arbitrarily forgive anyone's sins because that would take away our free will. Since God The Father only wants those who freely CHOSE to want to be like him , " do his will ", it would be very unwise to force anybody to do things against their will.

However , since the Creation is spiritual in nature , and " sin as a spiritual reality DOES NOT EXIST ", those beings who continue in their sinful ways , must somehow be dealt with ! That's when the universal law of : " What Mercy can NOT rehabilitate , Justice will eventually ANNIHILATE ", comes into effect. No need for hell...you will be toast !


Very Happy


Depends on which sin you have the faith to repent of and you are not at liberty to choose the sin.
