Does this mean, then, that Christianity is a flawed religion? Or is a different reading of the Crucifixion feasible? The first step out of this predicament is to recall Christ’s statements, which disturb - or, rather, simply suspend - the circular logic of revenge or punishment destined to re-establish the balance of Justice: instead of ‘An eye for an eye!’, we get ‘If someone slaps your right cheek, turn to him your left cheek also!’ The point here is not stupid masochism, humble acceptance of one’s humiliation, but the endeavor to interrupt the circular logic of the re-established balance of justice. Along the same lines, Christ’s sacrifice, with its paradoxical nature (it is the very person against whom we humans have sinned, whose trust we have betrayed, who atones and pays the price for our sins), suspends the logic of sin and punishment, of legal or ethical retribution, of ‘settling accounts’, by bringing it to the point of self-relating. The only way to achieve this suspension, to break the chain of crime and punishment/retribution, is to assume an utter readiness for self- erasure.
