Well, once again Mark Driscoll, over at TheResurgence, has cranked out another great blog post. This time it is about how we can’t get away from the Substitutionary Atonement of Jesus on the cross. I find it sad, and interesting, that people are turning from this truth and doctrine that is at the bedrock of Christianity. So check out the POST and pass the link on to others! Here is a paragraph that I really enjoyed!
Nearly 2,000 years ago a poor, homeless, single man in his early thirties was executed by crucifixion like many other common criminals. He never wrote a book, never traveled more than 200 miles from his home, never held a political office, never married or had children, and never ran a company. His name is Jesus Christ and history is divided into the periods before and after his life. Time magazine named him “Man of the Millennium,” and more songs have been sung to, books written about, and artwork painted of him than anyone who has ever lived. Moreover, a few billion people alive today worship Him as their only God and deeply love Him unlike anyone who has ever lived.
