I grew up being taught God was angered by our sins and demanded justice by killing Jesus on the Cross. But, God surely didn’t need to be paid off to forgive us. God isn’t like the other pagan gods of the Bible who required a blood sacrifice for forgiveness. Jesus didn’t die for God but for us. The Bible talks about the Cross defeating sin or evil within us. We may still be talking about Jesus because He was willing to die, rather than power over others, for a message He believed in. Jesus sought to inspire us that an unselfish life empowered by our Creator is worth living. Change best happens when looking out for the interests of others than only one’s own interests.
