How did Jesus die for our sins?
I'm trying to get my head around this. So, jesus died, and that automatically destroyed all our sins?

Jesus didn't die for people's sins. His death was destined in that way.
God’s intervention in human affairs is very rare. God doesn't watch each and every human being at the same time and cannot live with each and everyone to guide them. These works are done by the spirits. God had created different kinds of spirits for various purposes. He had made the spirits to watch, guide and determine the destiny of the human beings from their daily activities, talks and thoughts too. Your past determines your present and your present determines your future. God has given freewill to all creatures including human beings. According to this, all human beings have all right to live a life as they wish. But if it happens to be bad and hurts someone, they have to face the consequences. These consequences are created by spirits. It's a natural system. After death no one lives in any form. Heaven and hell are only for spirits, not for human beings. God is a mystery even to the spirits. Spirits are not eternal beings but their lifetime is long. Spirits are separate elements. A human being during his/her lifetime is living with many spirits which have joined one by one since birth. They are knowledge, skills, feelings, emotions, interests and everything. Further there will be always some spirits with you on behalf of your parents, friends and relatives. Only these spirits make you remember them in a certain situations. All of these spirits are your consciousnesses and memories. Even thoughts are not your own. For example, when you want to take a decision on a subject, one after another the spirits think and you just listen, choose or reject the ideas which they transmit to your mind through your brain in the form of thoughts. Brain is just a media to connect the spirits to your mind. A mind is just a computer's mind. A mind is you. After the destruction of a computer completely you will not get its mind. The same is the case with the human beings. A human being doesn't have a spiritual body. Soul is nothing but an energy needed for the functionality of a body. It is not a spirit or anything else. A body's functionality is based on the auto mechanism. After death all spirits which accompanied a person quit and go to different places searching new bodies. No one lives after death in any form. All human beings are just robots made of flesh and bones and toys of the spirits for their games.

Because he taught that if you tell him you are sorry as long as you have not committed blasphemy against the spirit God you could be forgiven. Blasphemy is to deny the operation of the spirit of God and the good it accomplishes.
The spirit of God is pure and perfect and sin means to miss the mark of perfection.

There was no sacrifice, maybe a mild inconvenience. He "died" for about a day and a half, then was co-ruler of the universe according to myth. Claiming a supposed immortal to be a hero for a "sacrifice" makes as little sense as congratulating someone for getting a haircut- it grows back.

He didn't. He suffered an infinite punishment for sin in the quiet hours before his arrest. After that, he might have held onto life only by an act of divine will. He certainly died quickly enough after his executioners made a good faith effort to kill him.
No, his atonement does not automatically destroy all our sins. We have to repent, too, and that takes time and effort, including making what amends we can.
He had to die in order to resurrect himself (and as mentioned above, maybe it was not possible for him to live normally after his infinite punishment for sin). He had to resurrect himself to resurrect us all into tangible, physical life, health, and immortality.

You are misinterpreting the use of the word "for".
What does, "I'd die for a pizza right now," mean?
Is the person:
A) wanting a pizza?
B) willing to give their life in order to save a pizza?
Regarding Jesus... exchange 'for' with 'because of'

All sins have to be punished and without the shedding of blood, there is no remission or forgiveness of sins. Jesus didn't want us to have to be punished for our sins, so He volunteered to die on our behalf. He was our sacrifice for sins.
Not just anyone can be a sacrifice for sins. No human being could do it because every human being is a sinner. It had to be someone perfect who could be our sacrifice shedding His blood for our sins. Well Jesus Is GOD COME HERE TO EARTH IN FLESH.
So Jesus, who is God, in a flesh and blood body, is SINLESS and perfect. Therefore, He was able and willing to die on our behalf. So He took the sins of the whole world upon Himself and suffered our punishment so that we could go free and be forgiven.
That has been done by God, through Jesus Christ, for every human being that exists or ever will exist. But unless we RECEIVE CHRIST, THE SPOTLESS LAMB OF GOD WHO TAKES AWAY THE SINS OF THE WORLD, we cannot be forgiven.
We have to admit that we are a sinner, ask Jesus to forgive us because He is our Saviour and then love and follow Him for the rest of our lives on earth.
If we refuse to accept Christ, we must pay for our own punishment for sins in Hell's eternal torment.
So choose you this day whom you will serve. As for me and my house, we shall serve the Lord.

You can’t get your head around it because that’s not what went on. Jesus didn’t die for our sins, we don’t have an animal sacrificial system like Israel did.
Jesus died because of our sin and rebellion, to show us what he was willing to go through to show he loves us anyway.Source(s): Jesus follower

Jesus' sacrifice gave us the option of repenting of our sins in order to be given salvation.
