The good news is that about 2000 years ago Jesus Christ(God the Son) paid for everyone's sins(wrong doing) by dying on the cross so that we can go to Heaven when we die.
Seems that the person you are asking is not around to answer.
What did this death do exactly? Did it create a force more powerful than god, forcing Him to forgive sins when all he had to do was say, "I now forgive sins,"?
This sort of thing as you describe was happening all too frequently and many have and will find themselves being treated in such a brutal fashion.
Even if it were true, can't you see how believing in this stuff has warped your mind? A being is brutally tortured until bloody, his head is spiked with thorns. Spikes are hammered into his body. He is given poison to drink and is stabbed with a spear. And, this is GOOD news? Can't you see how this is sick beyond comprehension?
Jesus prayed to God for Him to listen to him and to pay attention to his plight. God answered him by raising him from the dead. So there is a sort of "power" going on here in regards to what this means to us, which is that as bad as the circumstances were that Jesus existed in when he prayed, God accepted that prayer, thus breaking the natural "force" that would prevent God from listing to other people like ourselves when we find ourselves in similar circumstances.
I didn't say that there was.
. . . god had a natural force stronger than him . . .
