Your query asks more than can be answered here, but suffice to say this much: HE set the bar impossibly high, higher than could be achieved through human means.
And then HE fulfilled the need.

was the gouging out of eyes of all babies born by women with blonde hair, would "H"e still be "Holy"?
If not, why is there no problem with "H"im setting the price as death?
If you're able to answer that. can you follow up by answering how much holier it is to demand death and blood-shed than to give us all a damn-good telling-off instead, say!
Originally posted by KellyJayAm I misunderstanding you, or are you saying that sin is really really valuable? (or 'to die for' ) Or should I use 'worthy' in place of 'valuable' in that sentence?
Setting the price for something goes towards its value and cost, it isn't just
picked out of the air just because that is what you want. The value of anything
is set by it worth, and that will be set by either the good or the bad things it
can do, or what people are willing to pay! Sin's cost or wages for it is death,
that is where it leads, those that end. The cost of it is
very high, to do away with its stain or damage is due to that.

I entered this place as an agnostic but I am rapidly becoming atheist on this particular god. He is just too silly to be real.
