No, you asked if Christ’s atonement wasn’t a punishment, then how was it for our sake. Which is why I aksed you why you were presuming that atonment can only come via punishment, if you indeed were presuming such. Are you? If so, why?
It was someone else who brought up lambs, pointing out that their death was not a punishment for them, yet was still an act of atonement.
Your question and concern seems to presuppose that atonement can only come via punishment. Why do you believe that?
Do you presume that atonement can only come through punishment?
Were the lambs and other animals sacrificed as sin offerings being punished for their sins?
If not, then how did their death atone as sin offerings? What good did it do for those lambs to get themselves killed?
