You may ask, why did God abandon Jesus? My God, my God, Why have you forsaken me? The answer is found in Scripture, 2 Corinthians 5:21, The Bible says: God put the wrong on him (Jesus) who never did anything wrong, God put the wrong (sin) on (Jesus) why? so we could be put right with God. 2 Corinthians 5:21 (MSG) Why did God have to abandon Jesus? Because Jesus became sin. On the cross, He became a murderer and adulterer, he became lust and lying, God put on him our addictions to pornography , our cheating, and racism and hatred, and any other sin that's existed in this world; Jesus became sin and God had to look away because His eyes are too righteous to even look upon sin. He died for our sins, so that our sins can be forgiven. When everyone around the cross didn't understand, God put the wrong on him, who never did anything wrong, so we could be put right with God.
