This makes no sense. If the debt was paid, then it was paid, whether I believe the story or not. If I pay off your credit card balance, it's paid off whether you believe that I did or not. How is the debt only paid if I happen to believe it? Either Jesus died on the cross for all sins or he didn't. If I don't believe it then does the past change somehow? How does that work?...
Chrisitanity has no clue what the religion of Jesus wass about nor have they ever cared to in 1700 years.
While I believe in Jesus and God, I find that 99% of Modern Christianity (AKA PAulinism) is one convoluted fairytale made up pagans, starting with Paul and promulgated at sword point by Emperors and Popes ever since.
Islam isn't much better, either.
