Joe; TRUE REPENTANCE is enough

"Jesus did not die for YOUR sins... He died so your sins could be forgiven if you turn to God in TRUE REPENTANCE..."

What a contradiction is that!
If I sin, I definitely wronged myself, & by turning to God in TRUE REPENTANCE I will be forgiven. Then why someone dies for the sins that I committed, my God is a just God.
I am called to believe that Jesus is God, & now I am told that Jesus died for me. Then why should I not ask whether God dies or not? I know my God is ever lasting.
If you say Jesus is God & a man at the same time, I will still ask which one died for my sins? Is it the God or the man? And if it were the man, why is it only Jesus, why not every man. Please be wise.
