A Christian who has understanding does not blame the Jews, or anyone else but all men for their sin. Sin is the reason that Christ laid down His life, sothat He could pay the price for our sin.
Which brings me to the point; nobody "killed" Christ, as He laid down his life for our salvation. He could very easily have saved Himself.

Jesus as we all know died for the sins of mankind. This is what Christianity is all about. The ability for someone to be "born again" is mutually connected to this idea.
If Jesus HAD to die for our sins, then why are so many Christians pissed at Jewish people. If infact this event was out of GOD's all mighty hands, shouldnt Christians in fact be thanking the Jews for this deed. Maybe not the Jews, but Pilate, Barabbas, Ciaphas, and the mob. Don't all these people deserve some kind of special treatment from GOD and/or Christians, and not be condemned for all of eternity as some christians might think/say (since they killed or led to the killing of Jesus). These people did GOD's work and without them Christianity wouldnt exist, now would it?

These people saw the miracles of Christ and still put him to death. They still retained their free will, simply because god knew they would do this already and they still did it does not warrant special treatment. Anyone who hears the word according to christianity and does not awnser the calling of christ is condemned to eternal damnation. Why on earth would the people who through free will, heard the word spoken by the man himself, witnessed his miracles and testimony and still put him to death deserve special treatment?
