Boso affirms that it would be fitting, but Anselm disagrees. Holtrop Grand Rapids, MI: Eerdmans, 1971p. What God commanded Christ the Son was what he commands of humankind generally: to live a righteous life of worship or honor of God.
For the will of God is never irrational. The work takes the form of a discussion between Anselm and his Cur Deus homo pupil, Boso, who gives voice to the questions of unbelievers and believers. Go on to mention, as you have begun, the evil things which can be added to those already shown for I am ignorant of them. And if it is right to say that the Son spared not himself, but gave himself for us of his own will, who will deny that it Cur Deus homo right to say that the Father, of whom he had this will, did not spare him but gave him up for us, and desired his death?
We must also observe that when any one pays what he has unjustly taken away, he ought to give something which could not have been demanded of him, had he not stolen what belonged to another.
This fulfills the dual sense in which sin was atoned for on the old-covenant Day of Atonement, both by the sacrifice of one animal and the symbolic transfer of the sins of the people to the back of the scapegoat, who was then sent into the wilderness, removing the sins from the people.
But if in this very impotence lies the fault, as it does not lessen the sin, neither does it excuse him from paying what is due. Infinite Object In the first place Cur Deus homo protests that, while he will proceed, he will do so not in the mode of a demonstration but rather as a co-seeker with his student Boso non tam ostendere quam tecum quaerere. Since death entered the human race through the disobedience of man, it is fitting that life should be restored through the obedience of man.
To the objection that, since man is unable to avoid sinning, God ought not judge him, Anselm makes a good reply.
God the Father did not treat that man as you seem to suppose, nor put to death the innocent for the guilty.
Yet, given the remarks of some, we are surprised that he says so much in this area and that what he says is so good.
Is not the case similar to that of the Gentiles who were called unto faith, because the Jews rejected it? for would it not be far better to keep and preserve his pearl pure, than to have it polluted? Moreover, he said that the cup must not pass from him, except he drank it, not because he could not have escaped death had he chosen to; but because, as has been said, the world could not otherwise be saved; and it was his fixed choice to suffer death, rather than that the world should not be saved.
