What higher power could compel God to go through a bloody ritual just to allow the changing of a rule that God made in the first place?
We are capable of forgiving others without killing our own sons. Why should we think that we are better able to forgive than God? Whether or not Jesus was supposed to be the son of God, if it was God’s will that Jesus be the ultimate sacrifice so mortals could gain God’s forgiveness, then the entire ritual of sacrifice becomes superfluous. Forgiveness occurs when the decision to forgive is made. If God had a plan to forgive mortals, then it was already done. Why is there the need to go through with the bloody ritual?

maiahlynn, : If people are natural sinners, then sin must have been created before man ever was- therefore, your God must have created evil. If God knows everything, then he would know ahead of time who is going to sin and who is going to worship him and etc.- therefore, the free will you think you have is simply you doing what your God already knows you are going to do- your choices are not real choices because they do not change your God's plan for you.
Saying you have to kill someone in order to forgive people for something they were born with makes no sense. Your God must have ALREADY known about the sin and the need he would have to forgive it, so why even bother with the bloodshed of his son? Why not simply forgive it or stop it from ever existing in the first place?
