Jesus himself declared that he came to fulfill the Law, not to dilute or destroy it. (Mathew 5:17) KILLING AN INNOCENT PERSON IN A CRULEST MANNER to atone for the sins of others is in effect fighting sin with greater sin.
Didn't Jesus say, "I lay down my life ....No man taketh it from me, but I lay it down of myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again."
He also said: that no man hath greater love than this, that he lay down his life on behalf of his friends.
No sin here that I can see. In fact, this unselfish "giving of ones life so that others can live" is usually one of the highpoints in Hollywood movies because it is an action that is universally recognized as the greatest expression of love that can be performed by humans ..... except when it comes to Jesus of course for heretics. Then it is a sin.
It is only pure reason that the Omniscient God Almighty will not be led into a situation where He will find Himself in utter helplessness that He will need the help of one of His children to come out of a crisis,
God is not the one helpless, he is not the one in a crisis. This is a complete upside down view of God and man. We are the ones that are helpless, not God.
All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the Lord hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.
As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:
or to find Himself in a situation that there is no other way than killing one innocent person—that too His own first born—longest loved son in the first place! Bringing the son through a virgin, and finally killing him through a cruelest manner, and making such a KILLING the basis of forgiveness of people’s sins CANNOT BE an idea originated with God, Jesus nor any prophet.
And yet, God makes the very thing you reject exceedingly clear:
15 That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.
16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. -- John 3: 15-17
Christ Trades Places :
For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust - 1 Peter 3: 18
Because fulfillment of such a scheme depends on God’s expectation of consistent behavior of hard-core sinners like Pharisees, which means God should depend on THE CO-OPERATION OF AVOWED SINNERS TO REMOVE SINS!? If it takes a greater sin (killing the innocent son) to remove lesser sins, what does God convey through ransom-teaching—SIN REMOVES SIN?
Now you are calling God a sinner? God is the one who defines sin, not you. What good parent would not hesitate to run into a burning building to save his children? Why is it heroic for humans to do something like this and a sin for God to do it in your opinion? Very hypocritical to reason this way.
In God's infinite wisdom, He ordered the death penalty for sin. But, Christ BECAME SIN for us. Through the act of Substitution a way has been found that is acceptable to both the Law giver and to many free moral agents (people) who receive it.
For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him. - 2 Cor. 5: 21
This is the great exchange that is offered to mankind by God.
If ransom teaching is true, then it only creates more problem than it supposedly solves
It only creates a "problem" for those who are anti-christ.
Jesus says some are “good,” (Mathew 12:35) hence not in need of any sacrifice like ransom sacrifice.
The "good" and "righteous" in the bible are those that put faith in God and actually believe him. This is imputed goodness and imputed righteousness as opposed to inherent righteousness. ALL still gotta have a Savior.
And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith - Phil. 3: 9
