Response to Sure, the main thing Jesus was sent by God for was to die for our sins,
God sent Jesus to save us from the wages of sins.
Dying for our sins is only a part of the process of saving us from our sins. However, Jesus CANNOT die for our sins IN VIOLATION of God's RIGHTEOUSNESS concerning sin and sinners, to wit:
"The fathers shall NOT be put to death for the children, NEITHER shall the children be put to death for the fathers; EVERY MAN shall be put to death FOR HIS OWN sin" (Deut. 24:16 KJV). "The soul that SINNETH, it shall die...." (Ezek. 18:20 KJV).
This is God's Law that Jesus was referring to when he said, "...I did not come to destroy but to fulfill. For assuredly, I say to you, till heaven and earth pass away, one jot or one tittle will BY NO MEANS PASS FROM THE LAW till all is fulfilled" (Matt. 5:17-18).
There is no question that Christ is the son of the living God, the Christ and the Messiah. But do you, Tomas, know how Christ died for our sins IN CONFORMITY with God's RIGHTEOUSNESS?
Apostle Paul wrote the first-century Christians, thus: "For He made him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the RIGHTEOUSNESS of God in him" (2 Cor. 5:21). "For Christ is the end of the law of righteousness for everyone who believes" (Rom. 10:4).
Do you, Tomas, know HOW the Corinthian Christians were made God's RIGHTEOUSNESS in Christ? Do you, Tomas, know how Christ is the end of the law of righteousness for everyone who believes?
I guarantee you Tomas, that until you drain your brain of FALSE ideas, you will NOT learn anything new and you will EVER be IGNORANT of God's righteousness and NEVER submit to h righteousness of God (Rom. 10:1-3).
