God is omnipotent, couldn't he have found a less horrific way to carry
out his plan than the cross?"
he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities;
the punishment that brought us peace was upon him, and by his wounds we
Himself bore our sins in His body on the cross, that we might die to sin
and live to righteousness; for by His wounds you were healed. "
better say I don't know. Being neither omnipotent nor omniscient myself,
I am hardly in a position to judge God's alternatives or the choice he made.
I will say that God's willingness to take upon the horror of the cross may
serve as an illustration of the awfulness of our sin, and the lengths God
is willing to go to save us.
It does do that.
the word omnipotence must be carefully understood in regard to how it describes
God. There are things God cannot do. Among those include: God cannot
act contrary to his nature, he cannot overlook sin, he cannot tolerate injustice
forever, he cannot break his promises, and he cannot lie.
God, evidence, and atheists
sacrifices all about?
