If there was another way – why Calvary?

 

If we could erase our sins by good works – why the cross?

 

If religious observance was sufficient – why the 39 lashes?

 

If I can make it without help – why the crown of thorns?

 

If man’s religion can save – why did He come?

 

If self-sacrifice is the key to heaven – why the spittle in His face?

 

If my best is good enough – why the nails?

 

If I could pray my way out of hell – why the rods?

 

If I didn’t require a redeemer – why was One sent?
