If one�s part in these is taken away, there appears to be nothing left except eternal damnation. He will be a silent, innocent sufferer like a lamb (Isa. 53:7). For he made him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in him.” Jesus did what God expected. It's a good thing God gave us such large-capacity brains.
