1. "but the unbearable separation that would form a chasm between them as Christ would take upon Himself the sin of the world."You have struck here upon what I feel is one of the most passionate parts of Christ's story. I have always felt that the most painful part of the crucifixion, the part that drove Christ to pray "let this cup pass from me, but not My will, but Yours be done" was the approaching separation you speak of.At that hour on the cross, hung suspended between mankind that rejected Him, and when darkness covered the land when the Father, God, whom Christ had been in constant communion from eternity past, turned His back on His Son because Christ had taken on our sins and had to therefore be separated from the Father…Utterly isolated, rejected by man and God, how did He ever bear that pain of all our sins, as He paid that price?
