History has clearly shown that worship of Jesus invariably becomes a time-and culture-bound religion, often ethnic or even implicitly racist, which excludes much of humanity from 'God’s' embrace….what did Jesus believe and say on the topic?
Any 'God' worthy of the name must transcend creeds and denominations, time and place, nations and ethnicities, and all the vagaries of gender, extending to the limits of all we can see, suffer, and enjoy.
Jesus was sacrificed for what 'it is believed' Jesus said on any topic.
I am thinking the key to understanding the sacrificial death of Jesus on the cross is to recognize that it was not 'God' who demanded or required the death of Jesus; it was humans being.
Jesus did not die to please or appease 'God'.
Jesus was sacrificed to please and appease man-kind.
Humans being called for the blood of Jesus; not God being.
'God' unconditioned doesn’t need or demand payment for sin.
Restorative Justice - that is the universalal vocational calling 'In Christ'.
