Have you chosen salvation by scapegoat? Is that Moral?
Who would say that punishing the innocent instead of the guilty is good justice? Satan or Yahweh?
Many Christians just want a get out of hell free card and will follow Satan and do the immoral thing of using Jesus as their scapegoat to get it.
Jesus taught the opposite with his, pick up your cross and follow me. He did not teach, get on and ride me into heaven.
Some would have Jesus break the law he said he came to fulfil.
Ezekiel 18:20 The soul that sinneth, it shall die. The son shall not bear the iniquity of the father, neither shall the father bear the
iniquity of the son: the righteousness of the righteous shall be upon him, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon him.
Deuteronomy 24:16 (ESV) "Fathers shall not be put to death because of their children, nor shall children be put to death because of their fathers. Each one shall be put to death for his own sin.
I think that the bottom moral line to the whole notion of substitutionary punishment is as follows.
Having another innocent person suffer for the wrongs you have done, — so that you might escape responsibility for having done them, — is immoral. To abdicate personal responsibility or use a scapegoat — is immoral.
If you do not agree, please offer an argument that shows where and how punishing the innocent instead of the guilty is a moral thing to do.
