The entire Old Testament is full of examples of sacrifices that were “required”y God because God said so. Jesus said He willingly gave up His life, voluntarily. The idea of Christ as a once and for all sacrifice, is not in a vacuum. Although I can appreciate your desire to protect against heresy, I don’t see (unless I’m missing something) a biblical alternative being presented here (at least in this post). To me this is another attempt to retract from any image of a potentially violent God, than an actual exegetical response to a strong biblical theme of sacrifice as a necessity. Bless you and I appreciate any responses you may be able to provide.

Amen, brother
