Think this through:
Why would any kind, loving, graceful deity demand the torture and death of something innocent in order to be able to bestow simple forgiveness for wrongs committed against them? Why would they create such a system?
How would you feel about a human being who demanded the torture and death of an innocent 3rd party in order to be able to forgive a person who wronged them in some way?
Why would a deity demand humans forgive freely but refuse to do so themselves?
Let me know your conclusions if you wish!
