If Sin Demands Eternal Punishment, Why Was the Cross Temporary?

How was Jesus able to bear our ETERNAL wrath on the cross?

  1. because jesus died on the cross so that our sins can be forgiven and a clean slate can be obtained. so you can sin but repent and turn away from that sin and not have damned eternal punishment. But if you sin and have no remorse, shame, and no intent to turn away from those sins than you will be rewarded with the eternal punishment. You decide. With out jesus we wouldn’t be able to have those options.

  2. I don’t claim to have a definitive answer, but here’s my take:

    The wages of sin are death and separation from God. Jeus died and was separated from God. Having done so for our sake, he could then be reconciled to God.

    “And just as it is appointed for man to die once, and after that comes judgment” (Hebrews 9:27, ESV)

    I would suggest that Jesus experienced this too, but having lived a sinless life, judgment was in his favour.

    (As I said, I’m not sure of the doctrinal integrity of my answer – just the line of reasoning that occurs to me).
