But even if we just look at the saving part, jesus is ethically compromised. We are supposed to believe that this guy has taken upon himself the weight of the sins of all people for all time. This sounds suspiciously like a scapegoat. Now, scapegoats are not a moral practice, right? You know the origin of the scapegoat, no? In summary, the people of a village would symbolically place upon a goat the weight of the sins of the village. Then the animal was lead out of the village and killed. The sins left with the goat, and the village would be safe from the retribution from some petty deity. Jesus is a scapegoat. That’s not ethical.
Our morals have evolved past stupid scapegoats. We understand that if you err, you cannot place the responsibility on a goat. You messed up; you deal with it. If I get a jail sentence, I cannot pay anyone to serve it for me. That’s not allowed, and that is the deal you MUST take from the savior. The deal offered to you in christianity is a scapegoat, and that is not an ethical practice.
We have moral issues today, but they will not be solved by invoking a Bronze Age book. They not be solved by invoking an imaginary deity. They will be solved by you and me. God isn’t here; weare.
