For God nothing is impossible His oceans of mercy are so deep and vast
that mountains of sins can drown in them without trace, if only one drop
of His mercy was to fall upon this world, it would be sufficient for the
sins of the entire nation to be forgiven. Therefore it is just not plausible
that He would go to such extremes to rid mankind of their sins. Let logic
prevail and the unacceptability of this far-fetched theory becomes so obvious
as to cause doubt, in any mind capable of coherent thought.
A Reluctant Candidate for Crucifixion.
What is more is that Jesus, according to the Gospels, did not offer himself willingly and neither did he want to be crucified. He was arrested against his will, and prayed to God asking Him to let the calamity which was to befall him, pass away.
Jesus even asked his disciples to bring swords to prevent his arrest and upon the cross he actually reproached God for abandoning him, as is clear from the following extract of the Bible :
"Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani?" - "My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?" Mark 16:34.
Despite all this evidence from the Gospels themselves, of a very reluctant candidate for crucifixion, the Christians continue to portray the image of a voluntary crucifixion.
