091 Substitutionary Atonement

In Episode 91, we continue with the non-negotiable fundamentals of Christianity, where we reference the famous football coach Vince Lombardi, "Gentlemen, this is a football." We talk about the third non-negotiable, where we look at the Old Testament sacrificial system to gain a better understanding of the atonement. To pay for our sins, Jesus died on the cross and saved us from suffering. He lovingly offered Himself up and died in our place.

However, the concept of substitutionary atonement is a controversial topic of debate amongst the Christian community, and to this day many individuals still continue to fight and deny the sacrifices Jesus made. How can this be?

Tune in now and let's go bigger, better, and deeper!
