"Finney taught that Christ was obligated to obey the law for Himself, but Christ was not obligated to suffer and die since He never violated the law." truefaithsavIf Christ was only obligated to obey Himself then a spotless lamb on the cross would only serve Himself. I thought the cross required a spotless lamb as a type and shadow of the OT lambs that were without any imperfections. To me this foreknowledge and shadow foretold a spotless lamb being sacrificed for the sins of others. This cannot happen if Jesus sins so I'm not sure how He was only obligated to Himself in His obedience.
