Between a Good Samaritan and Judas Iscariot

A good Samaritan is someone who offers help to a stranger. On the other hand, Judas Iscariot is the person who betrayed Jesus Christ. Good Samaritans are indeed good and kind. They are willing to help strangers whom they do not even know about their true identities. But, can we say the same about Judas Iscariot? Some people may label him as a villain. Others may even call him as a fcuking bastard. A number of bad names can be used to address him, but doesn't the bible say that Jesus came to this world to redeem sins of millions and he would eventually be crucified? So, it was actually predestined that the event of crucifixion should have taken place in order to save the souls of millions which were about to perish in the hell. As believed by many Christians, Jesus was indeed crucified. The events of his death and resurrection mark the victory of those who believe in him to triumph over the evils. They are not bound to the hell anymore. The bible which is the all-time top selling book on earth tells us about all these. Jesus is the saviour of Christians it says. But without the role of Judas Iscariot, portraying the villain of the Christ's death, could the destiny of men be changed? They were sinners after all. So, their sins have been redeemed at the expense of not only the blood of Jesus Christ but also the role played by Judas Iscariot in plotting the death of the former.
