God Wanted Us Dead? The “New” False Doctrine of Substitutionary Atonement.

Pin It

I am so happy I found this: “Saint Athanasius and the ‘Penal Substitutionary’ Atonement Doctrine” by Kevin Allen today.

What a great post on one of my favorite topics: substituionary atonement. I think it’s a morbid, negative and creepy doctrine which has been very harmful to the Christian Church. And as Kevin Allen points out: it’s pretty new.

If you’re being taught that Christ died in our place to assuage a wrathful and blood-thirsty god, then you need to read Kevin Allen’s post… and change churches.

Romans 5
"18. Therefore just as one man's trespass led to condemnation for all, so one man's act of righteousness leads to justification and life for all.
19. For just as by the one man's disobedience the many were made sinners, so by the one man's obedience the many will be made righteous."


  1. Change churches, indeed!

    It’s kinda hard for me to be a Reformed theological guy sometimes. Man, did we blow it in places!

  2. Theodore A. Jones says:

    “For it is not those who hear the law who are righteous in God’s sight, but it is those who obey the law who will be declared righteous. ” Rom. 2:13 You are right for once. You really do need a lot more reforming. Because the law Paul is referencing is not the Sinai code rather it is a law that was added, Rom. 5:20, after Jesus’ crucifixion.
