The Greatest Rebellion

As Christ suffers on the cross, someone says “He saved others, let Him save Himself”

This struck me today as the penultimate statement of the fall. The words hold all contempt for God, while at the same time acknowledging God. It is looking God in the face and saying “do something you weakling”. Replacing God for myself. Christ had shown His power, but the chief priests hadn’t shown theirs. The people thought they could overpower God, even given what He is.

It is as if we could compete with God for His position. As if Christ was somehow on our level, a level we could fight with. This is the ultimate mistake of the fall. The only way we could think like this is if we thought ourselves God.
