The Atonement of the Lord Jesus Christ is the heart and core and center of revealed religion.

England, Forgiveness, Mercy


Christ’s sacrificial love was not conditional upon our qualities, our repentance, anything: he expressed his love to us while we were yet in our sins – not completing the process of forgiveness, which depends upon our response, but initiating it in a free act of mercy. This is a kind of love quite independent from the notion of justice.
