Taking on responsibility and punishment for people's 'sins' or crimes is not something that should be celebrated.
If someone commits a crime they should do the time, take the lashes etc and not somebody else. It's incredibly immoral.
Almost as immoral as a human blood sacrifice of your own son (who's also yourself)..made to yourself to create a loophole for the rules you made...
Who would believe this????
Jesus never asked for worship, insisting only God was good. Truthfully, in the entire new testament, Jesus never says " I am God" He does his will as though they were one, but even admits inferiority to God. So the pagan based trinity doctrine of three EQUAL gods in one is fallacious. Jesus was the Messiah but he was not God.

Ephesians 2:16 And that he might reconcile both unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby:

Romans 5:8 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
