I heard an interesting analogy once...
Let's say you are in a movie theater watching a movie with a few hundred people and an armed felon stands up threatening to kill everyone in the theater. Before he begins the executions, a father walks up to the felon with his only son and makes a deal. He asks the felon to take and kill his only son in place of all the people in the theater. The felon agrees. Many grateful people rush toward the door of freedom. However, a few of the people in the theater come forward to tell the father that his deal is unfair. They would like him to provide another way of getting out of the theater alive.
That's it. I found it helpful when discussing the fairness of salvation.
