Such blasphemy as you post is only possible by taking the Bible OUT of context. The Bible is quite clear that no man can pay for the sins of another and that all (children of Israel and converts) are required to follow the Laws for ever.

The Gospel of Mark: a commentary & meditation
----------
"But who do you say that I am?"

Scripture: Mark 8:27-33

27 And Jesus went on with his disciples, to the villages of Caesare'a Philip'pi; and on the way he asked his disciples, "Who do men say that I am?" 28 And they told him, "John the Baptist; and others say, Eli'jah; and others one of the prophets." 29 And he asked them, "But who do you say that I am?" Peter answered him, "You are the Christ." 30 And he charged them to tell no one about him. 31 And he began to teach them that the Son of man must suffer many things, and be rejected by the elders and the chief priests and the scribes, and be killed, and after three days rise again. 32 And he said this plainly. And Peter took him, and began to rebuke him. 33 But turning and seeing his disciples, he rebuked Peter, and said, "Get behind me, Satan! For you are not on the side of God, but of men."

Meditation: Who is Jesus for you? At an opportune time Jesus tests his disciples with a crucial question: Who do men say that I am and who do you say that I am? He was widely recognized in Israel as a mighty man of God, even being compared with the greatest of the prophets, John the Baptist, Elijah, and Jeremiah. Peter, always quick to respond, professes that Jesus is truly the Christ. No mortal being could have revealed this to Peter; but only God. Through faith Peter grasped who Jesus truly was. He was the first apostle to recognize Jesus as the Anointed One (Messiah and Christ). Christ is the Greek word for the Hebrew word Messiah, which means Anointed One. Peter's faith, however was sorely tested when Jesus explained that it was necessary for the Messiah to suffer and die in order that God's work of redemption may be accomplished. How startled the disciples were when they heard these words! How different are God's thoughts and ways from our thoughts and ways! Through humiliation, suffering, and death on the cross Jesus broke the powers of sin and death and won for us our salvation. The Lord Jesus tests each of us personally with the same question: Who do you say that I am?

"Lord Jesus, I profess and believe that you are the Christ, the Son of the living God. You are my Lord and my Savior. Make my faith strong and help me to live in the victory of the cross by rejecting sin and by accepting your will."

You need a dose of reality.

If Jesus had been the Messiah of prophecy, he would not have died on the cross. He would have died as an old man, after having liberated Israel from Roman rule. Ever since that time, the children of Israel would have been living a life of peace and prosperity, "each one under his fig tree"... The Temple would have been restored, and the sacrifices would have continued to this day (but only sacrifices of thanksgiving, for no man would need a sin sacrifice - the entirety of the Law would be written in men's hearts with perfect understanding).

Calling Jesus a god is, in Biblical terms, utter blasphemy and an abomination. The Bible absolutely forbids the worship of anything in the shape of a man, ever. The Bible forbids the worship (by the children of Israel) of any God that they did not worship in the time of Moses, in the manner taught by Moses.

Suggestion: read Deuteronomy. Straight through. Do not read anything else until you have read it all from 1:1 to 34:12 IF you are intellectually honest, you will see that it makes christianity impossible.
