Why is Jesus Christ Called the Sacrificial Offering for Sins?
Sins cannot be destroyed without destroying the entire human race.
What is Sin?
Sin is unrighteous behavior committed in defiance against the laws of God.
Wrongful acts committed against others angers God. This behavior is called sins.
God Requires Blood to Pay for Sins
There were people who once sacrificed animals to pay for their sins, but continued to defy the laws of God.
Because of their behavior, God refused to accept their sacrificial offerings. And wanted instead, one righteous man to die for the sins of the human race or he would destroy all human life. There was no man who had never sinned. The only hope, for the human race existing, was Jesus Christ the Son of God.
He is the mediator between God and Man. It is his blood and body that was sacrificed to pay for sins to give all humans another chance with God since the creation of Adam and Eve, to save man from eternal death.
Source of Scriptures:
1 Timothy 2:5,6 states, “For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus; who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time.”
John 3:16 states, “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
