Vicarious Redemption of Sin

A lot of times I talk about the immorality of Christianity. Most of the time, Christians and even a few atheists jump to defend Christianity by talking about various good deeds particular Christians have done and continue to do. But I wasn’t talking about Christians being immoral; I was talking about Christianity being immoral. What can be more immoral then the vicarious redemption of sin?

The whole idea that I can go and murder someone or work on Saturday and have my sins forgiven vicariously by someone else is a license for crime. Christians often use the analogy of some small offense like a drunk driving charge (which for the record isn’t really a small offense) and they talk about how Judge God lets the offender off the hook because Jesus paid his or her fine. But that isn’t how the world works.

If someone went and murdered someone else and was found guilty, no one would be able to pay the fine of prison time except that person who was found guilty. There is an old expression, “If you do the crime, you will do the time.”

But that isn’t the worst part of the Christian redemption system. The way Jesus allegedly pays for your sins is through blood sacrifice. It is funny that when most Americans hear about some cult sacrificing an animal to the Gods they laugh and think such a ritual is absurd and yet 80% or more believe the same thing.

The whole Christian belief system centers around the idea of blood sacrifice. Back before Jesus allegedly came, the Abrahamic God wanted people to sacrifice goats to him so that he could forgive them for their sins. This is where the term scapegoat comes from. Everyone in the village puts all their sins on to the goat and kills the goat as a sacrifice to God. But God wanted more than just a goat.

Lambs were more desirable to God apparently, because he wanted the people to sacrifice an innocent lamb to show how much they care instead. Let me repeat that last part. God wanted people to sacrifice an Innocent Lamb.

Now of course there is no need to sacrifice an Innocent Lamb or any other lamb for that matter because Jesus is the “Lamb of God.” In other words, he is the innocent blood sacrifice that God needs for the redemption of sin.

Some people will say that not all Christians believe this and that I am generalizing. But the fact is that this whole blood sacrifice thing is a pretty central point the Christian belief system. I really don’t think one could seriously be considered a Christian if they don’t buy into the idea that the death of Jesus was a necessary sacrifice to God for their sins. That is pretty much the whole grounding of the religion. God forgives those who have accepted the sacrifice of Jesus for payment of their sins.

In reality, there is no vicarious redemption for sin. God can’t forgive you for your wrongs. Only those who you have wronged can forgive you. Next time you lie to a friend or family member about something, instead of asking Jesus for forgiveness, try slaughtering an innocent lamb instead. Let me know if that works out for ya.

    Most Christians believe in temporal institutions, so that even if you have been or can be absolved from your sins in a spiritual sense, you still are obligated to do the time “in this world”.

    But yes, this Christian notion of believing in a sacrificial blood atonement for personal absolution and redemption is a cultural artifact that best be abandoned by any society that pursues rational aims and resolutions.

    God is an abusive father. Jesus should call child protective services!

    And why would God need the blood of anyone to forgive people anyway?

    • Rick Miller

      Because Christianity is a human sacrifice religion.

    There’s only one Lamb of God I’m interested in. :)

    I look forward to the day when they teach Christianity along side Greek and Roman mythology…

    Hmm, as usual you only include half the story in a pathetic attempt to mock a ridicule those who are manifestly better than you. I can understand how it makes you feel better about yourself, but you’re really only making a fool of yourself

      Oh there is much more to the story of Christianity, but I don’t really think that I need to reprint the entire Bible to get my point across. But if you feel that I left something critical out of my analysis of the vicarious redemption of sin in Christianity, please enlighten us.

      As for your personal attacks, I think they just demonstrate that you really have nothing constructive to add to the conversation.

    A friend of mine explained to me something about the court system where she came from in Pakistan:

    A wealthy person who has committed a crime can go to a place near the court-house and hire a poor person to take the blame. The judge knows full well what’s going on because he gets paid too.

    This is the same kind of “justice” as Christianity.
