Today, reply is made to a question on the divine use of flesh and blood, mortality, and the death of Jesus upon the cross.  For those of us who accept that divine law expresses the heart, mind and will of GOD, existence, life, and the multiple eternal purposes of divinity (e.g., blessing, praise, replenishing the earth) establish and serve as sacred boundaries, limits, and restrictions upon the chaos and conditions that otherwise contend against divine order having place within the universe.  Sin opposes the continued existence of divine law, the Law Giver, and the Creation that rests upon the platform of divine law; and, sin may dominate awareness and self-will in created beings and living creatures.  To fully accomplish, affirm, and proclaim the active presence of GOD as exalted even above sin, various divine methods, operations, and tools are being used.  Sin can not be eliminated or removed using the devices to destroy an ordinary material object.  Instead, sacred works must appear that counteract sin and erase its effects.  Included are atonement, forgiveness, rebirth, sacrifice, sanctification, and suffering.  A fighter at “Yahoo! 7 Answers (Australia)” using the ID “Anonymous” (no profile information shared) posted the following:

 

Why was it necessary for god to send his son on a suicide mission?

 

THE GOLDEN ARROW:  But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law,  To redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons.  And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father.  Wherefore thou art no more a servant, but a son; and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ.  (Galatians 4:  4-7, King James Version, KJV)

“Anonymous”, mature Christian believers recognize your question as one that has been asked by angels in heaven as well as by mankind upon the earth.  Divinity can not be legitimately challenged or condemned by finite beings for using carnal form (we say, Incarnation), mortality, divine prerogative, and sovereign authority.  The continuing existence of created beings and living creatures has required many unseen operations and sacred works.  The things that have been displayed as divine revelation to make divinity knowable, known, and visible to the living, therefore, include elements that also are carnal, material, and social.  The mortality of Jesus Christ understood by his birth, ministry, death, and resurrection are no less necessary for complete and correct sacred knowledge than his immortality and purity witnessed through his ascension, his provision of atonement and spiritual gifts through the Holy Spirit, his installment as judge and king through a testament of blood, his service as High Priest within the temple in heaven, his coming to harvest from the earth those who belong to him that are “ripe” (we say, the Advent, the Rapture, the Second Coming), and the establishment of the city made in heaven (the New Jerusalem) upon the earth.  Using ideas generated by the flesh (e.g., appetite, form, sensation, emotions, mental functions) the notion of “suicide” may seem acceptable.  However, sinners must go to “higher ground” to have the same broad and inclusive point of view that allows genuine Christian belief.
