Someone explain to me what the point of the Crucifixion was again?
I mean I know that the line is that Christ had to die because he was a perfect man so that his sacrifice could somehow count for us but I honestly find myself going, 'But WHY?' right now.
If everyone is responsible for their own sins and for accepting and relying on God's mercy and forgiveness then what was the purpose of the Crucifixion? Why was all the blood necessary?
