He Must Have Done Something

In our small group at church last night, we were discussing Hell and various things about it. At one point, the thought of "how can people be sent to Hell when they have never heard of Christ?" was brought up. In our brief discussion, the following verses were mentioned:
"The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands." - Psalm 19:1
"For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, so that they are without excuse." - Romans 1:20
One of the members of the group then mentioned that she was reminded of a scene from a movie where this was presented in a dramatic way. I immediately knew what movie she was talking about(Amistad) and wanted to post this scene today:

"Then He was born and everything changed."...
"But then something happened. He was captured. Accused of some crime. Here He is with His hands tied."
"He must have done something."
"Why? What did we do?"...
"But look. That's not the end of it."
"But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was upon him, and by his wounds we are healed." - Isaiah 53:5
