And it was Satan who killed Christ, through His agencies. It was not the Father. On the other hand, the teaching of the substitutionary death of Christ is a prominent theme of the Bible from Genesis to Revelation.
Carl Lentz: Old Testament Interpretation in Light of the Cross
It is a foundational teaching of Christianity. And it is expressed in Isa as well. The particularly wrong thought at least in translation was that "we considered him punished by God" for His own sins. The next verse than goes on to clarify. Satan mixes truth with error in order to "sell" the error. The glaring error in Satan's statement that Ellen White highlights is that God could not be just and justify the sinner.
There are other explicit references to the same thought.

Please read the sentence in context:. Could one sin have been found in Christ, had He in one particular yielded to Satan to escape the terrible torture, the enemy of God and man would have triumphed. Satan saw that his disguise was torn away. His administration was laid open before the unfallen angels and before the heavenly universe. He had revealed himself as a murderer. By shedding the blood of the Son of God, he had uprooted himself from the sympathies of the heavenly beings. Henceforth his work was restricted. The last link of sympathy between Satan and the heavenly world was broken.
Yet Satan was not then destroyed. The angels did not even then understand all that was involved in the great controversy. The principles at stake were to be more fully revealed. Man as well as angels must see the contrast between the Prince of light and the prince of darkness. He must choose whom he will serve. In the opening of the great controversy, Satan had declared that the law of God could not be obeyed, that justice was inconsistent with mercy, and that, should the law be broken, it would be impossible for the sinner to be pardoned.
Every sin must meet its punishment, urged Satan; and if God should remit the punishment of sin, He would not be a God of truth and justice. When men broke the law of God, and defied His will, Satan exulted. It was proved, he declared, that the law could not be obeyed; man could not be forgiven.
God could not be just, he urged, and yet show mercy to the sinner.

It is true that the substitutionary death of Christ is a foundational teaching of Christianity. However, there is a wide range of conceptualisations regarding the precise nature of Christ's substitutionary death. So I can understand more clearly where you are coming from, can I ask what do you understand, Biblically, to be the precise nature of the substitutionary death of Christ?
We all have temptations. Romans , All have sinned and fall short of the Glory of God. There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus.

If you're in a rush and leg it across the road just after the red light appears, you may be greeted with: "Es ist rot! Hier sind Kinder! However, in some countries across the world it's the norm to pay a bit less attention to traffic lights and, instead, cross the road when you think it's safe whether it's green or not.
We asked The Local readers to decide if it's ever okay to do it - and here's the result. On Facebook, 55 percent of respondents to our survey said NO, it's not okay to cross the road when the light is red. A total of 45 percent said YES, it's fine to do it if it's safe. And over on Twitter there was a similar result, although it was a little tighter: 52 percent of readers said NO it's not okay and 48 percent said YES, it's okay if it's safe.
Daily dilemmas of living in Germany: is it ever acceptable to cross the road when it's a red light? Readers also shared their views on the issue - and their own experiences of the road crossing culture in Germany. On Facebook, Chad Michael Hanawalt was faced with this dilemma early on during his first trip to the Bundesrepublik. He said: "I crossed on red once in front of the train station in Bonn. I could tell people were not happy with me. Although in my defence, it was my first time in Germany and I had no idea this was a thing. But I know better now! Chris Walmsley has also felt the wrath of the German public.
He's never cross the road when it's a red light again, well at least when there's other people around anyway. Alex Perry is not a fan of this law. The Ampeln traffic lights phases here are absurd. Debby Boon agrees. You'll get shouted or stared at for 'setting a bad example'," said one reader. Another respondent to our survey, Nabeel Ijaz Bhatti, said: "Normally it's not good to cross in red if there is traffic coming or a child or children are waiting to cross. If not, they will ask their accompanying person questions about this strange behaviour.
However Bhatti added that if there's no one around and the road is clear, it should be okay to cross the road.
