"...I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the fathers to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me..." [Deuteronomy 5:8-10]

Yet another delightful post on the IMDB Saved Boards, this time from conedust:

"Man didn't kill Jesus. God put Jesus on earth specifically for the purpose of death, and thus God bears the only responsibility for Jesus' crucifixion.

And Jesus'death accomplished NOTHING. Nothing at all. If God had wanted to 'forgive the sins of man', He could have done it anytime. Jesus didn't have to die in order for God to forgive man. God is God, after all. He can forgive anything he wants, anytime he wants.

But, instead of simply forgiving man quietly, God decided to kill Jesus as a sort of public relations move advertising the change he wanted to make in His contract with the people of Israel.

Which makes Jesus suffering a hideous mockery, and further proof of the Biblical God's basic evil. "
