I disagree with your statement, “Jesus dying in our place was obviously not morally right by any means.” I believe it was morally right. Jesus said in John that,”Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friend.” By dying on the cross, Jesus was doing what was morally right because he was sacrificing himself and obeying His Father in Heaven. We did not deserve Jesus’ sacrifice, and our sin is unjust, but there had to be a sacrifice to atone for our sins. A sacrifice for our sins would satisfy justice, and God decided that that sacrifice would be Jesus.
