A few months ago I saw God on My Side, Andrew Denton's film documentary about his visit to the National Religious Broadcasters Convention in America.  It features interviews with a wide-ranging group of people: puffy-haired 70's style evangelists, a passionate flakes-of-gold-on-your-hand-that's-God's-anointing Pentecostal, an Arabic Christian, a media-savvy laidback Phd in Theology, an Australian from UCB, a woman who has been married 9 times (or was it 10?), an end-of-the-world expert...every stripe of Christian imaginable...oh, and a ventriloquist doll!

It's an idea that seems to be gaining traction, or maybe I have just become more aware of it, i.e. the idea that Father did not forsake Jesus on the cross.

A quick google search turned up a couple of arguments against the idea that God forsook Jesus on the cross here and here.  One article is more convincing than the other, but I have a question for "anti-forsakers".

When Jesus cried out, “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?", would the Sinless One not have sinned unless that were true?
