We all know that Jesus died for our sins. It is a central teaching of the Bible and everyone who considers themselves Christian accepts this.
But how? Have you ever stopped to wonder what actually causes this? I mean, really. We say it so often, but what does it actually mean?
Over the years, many theologians have come up with answers to this question and the Catholic Church has never officially adopted one. We are left to wade in the deep water of the mystery of Christ, taking what we can from the truth and piecing it together.
