Why can’t God forgive sin without the need for a sacrifice?

Hebrews 9:22  “Indeed, under the law almost everything is purified with blood, and without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness of sins.”

Romans 6:23 “For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

Galatians 3:13 “Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us—for it is written, “Cursed is everyone who is hanged on a tree”

1 Peter 2:24 “He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; by his wounds you have been healed.”

Is there any unbiased evidence for Jesus?

If a bias is a point of view, then everyone with a point of view on something is biased. The question is contradictory.

In a court of law, eyewitnesses offer stronger testimony than non-eyewitnesses.  Therefore, the biblical writers offer the best evidence for Jesus.  “But they were very biased; they can’t be trusted!”  The amount of bias is a consideration but not solely.  Should the eyewitness testimony of Jewish holocaust survivors be rejected because they were very biased?  Some Nazi’s and Muslim would say yes, but is that not due to their even greater bias?  If one is going to reject all bias, if held consistently, they’d have to reject everyone’s testimony, their own testimony, and their own position.
