It only makes sense because God isn't like us. He's he's holy meaning he's separate from sin. He's other. He's transcendent, or set apart and so once we understand that as part of understanding the bad news which actually makes the good news makes sense when talking about the attributes of God.
One of the other important passages that I get into in the film is in Exodus 34 verse six through seven Moses on the mountain and the Lord reveals who he is, his glory to him and he says the Lord, the Lord God, compassionate and gracious, slow to anger and abounding in lovingkindness and truth who keeps steadfast love for thousands, who forgives iniquity, transgression and sin, but he will by no means leave the guilty unpunished so you have a God who is willing to forgive all types and kinds of sin.
Yet at the same time he saying all sin and all sinners will be punished. No sin will be left unpunished.
So this seems like a contradiction, but it's resolved perfectly in the cross because you have God forgiving sin in the person of his son Jesus Christ is revealing his love and his grace by willingly taking our punishment for sin, but we also see that God remains just because we have God the father punishing sin in Jesus on the cross so no sin is left unpunished, but he is still able to forgive and that act
