The week before Easter in Pampanga province in the Philippines, volunteers are crucified. Each remains on the cross for only a few minutes. The list of volunteers is so long that one must wait at least two years for a turn. The Catholic Archbishop said on national television. “Those who participate have their sins for the past year forgiven.”
However sincere the participants are, there is no need to do this. We know “Jesus paid it all!” He paid it all when He went to the cross for us.
