2 comments on “Theology for Dummies – Penal Substitutionary Atonement Theory

  1. “If you can’t tell by now I find all theories of the atonement either incomplete or lacking in Biblical support somewhere.” I also find that all of them contain some truth. Thus I share the feeling that you conclude with, “For now I am perfectly content to know that Jesus saved me and not know the nuts and bolts of how.”

    • That’s pretty much what I would say as well. I just feel that many of them contain an element of truth about atonement but not the whole truth. It seems the subject of the atonement for sin should have a far larger and more all encompassing answer.
