In some forms of Christianity, God tells us to forgive, but He won’t do the same Himself without drawing blood. It leads to a form of cosmic child abuse.
Let me quote from Baptist minister Rev Steve Chalke who is very critical of this kind of belief,
“The fact is that the cross isn’t a form of cosmic child abuse—a vengeful Father, punishing his Son for an offence he has not even committed. Understandably, both people inside and outside of the Church have found this twisted version of events morally dubious and a huge barrier to faith. Deeper than that, however, is that such a concept stands in total contradiction to the statement: ‘God is love’. If the cross is a personal act of violence perpetrated by God towards humankind but borne by his Son, then it makes a mockery of Jesus’ own teaching to love your enemies and to refuse to repay evil with evil.”
