No God would ever do such a cruel thing to his son, these fake Bible scholars maintain, and even if Jesus did die on a cross, it counts for nothing and saves nobody. The whole thing about atonement is pointless, since it is unnecessary.
What can be said about these apostates and infidels? The Bible describes them in many places, and I can think of several descriptions--but I think the vernacular term, "dunce, " is good too. In any case, they are liars--denying the whole truth of the Bible, which points the way to Jesus the Lamb of God, sacrificed on the Cross to pay the sin-penalty for all mankind. It WAS necessary. We are all sinners, condemned to death and eternal punishment. "The wages of sin is death," the Bible clearly states. We acknowledge that there should be punishment for breaking of the laws in society, yet how about breaking the laws of God? He demands a punishment for the lawbreaker, and since He is the Judge above all human judges and courts, He certainly has a right to demand that we pay the penalty for our sins against Him and our fellow man. Fortunately for us, He substituted Jesus Christ the Lamb, who was sinless, able to take all our sin upon Himself and wipe it completely away by His shed, innocent blood. Through this act of His, which was voluntary and not forced, we are freed from the penalty of our sin. It is not child abuse in any sense. Christ was a full-grown man and was no child when he freely chose to go to the Cross, to satisfy the will of His Father in heaven. He was not abused by His Father, who was not a tyrant in any respect. He chose to obey his loving Heavenly Father freely--His Father did not force him onto the Cross. It is the most asinine and incorrect misinterpretation to call it "transcendental chid abuse." Only a sarcastic, warped mind could come up with such a term. It is truly Satanic. It may be a sin against the Holy Spirit. I do hope these fake theologians will repent and will not have to suffer eternal punishment for these attacks on God, the Gospel, and the doctrine of Christ's Atonement.--Ed.
