Luke 23:34 Then said Jesus, Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do. And they parted his raiment, and cast lots.
Jesus was aware of the spiritual blindness of man even as He died for us to pay our sin debt. We need to realize that we have all sinned.
Romans 3:23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;
This includes everyone. There are no exceptions.
Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
We deserve death. Thank God we don't have to get justice but we can receive mercy through His grace.
Our eyes need to be opened to the fact that salvation is necessary but He has provided it for us as a gift. We must believe.
Romans 10:9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, THOU SHALT BE SAVED.
Any other path except through Jesus Christ leads to destruction. Satan has spiritually blinded many people to that fact.
