How was it loving for God to torture his own son? God didn't torture His own Son. We did. How was it just/fair for Jesus to take the punishment that we deserve? It wasn't fair, but it was God's demonstration of love. Humanity was cursed for our sin which resulted in the consequence of death. Jesus took that curse upon Himself, on our behalf, which ...
