Why is the commemoration of the Crucifixion of Jesus Christ referred to as Good Friday?
The Christian answer no doubt is " you're taking the word good out of context one has to understand the Herbrew meaning of the word etc, etc 😴😴😴
The other explanation is possibly that Christians get to guzzle Easter eggs , beer , watch plenty of tv , and laze about all the time trying to convince each other they're " holier "than anyone else
Wow. Are there no Christians capable of clearly explaining the cornerstone of Christianity? Is an agnostic required to step in to do the job?
Because Christians see the Crucifixion as the quintessential expression of God's love for humanity, the day commemorating this act of love is Good.
Christians believe that the crucifixion of Jesus was God sacrificing himself (simultaneously God's Son) to pay for each person's sin, making it possible for people who believe in this to be cleansed of their iniquities, saved from eternal damnation, and reconciled with God.
For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. (John3:16)
