I was interested in the idea that the `substitution' atonement as like some sort of blood sacrifice was an idea of Calvin. I've never really accepted the idea that Jesus was some sort of sacrifice to God, to appease a wrathful Yahweh. The idea presented here, is that Jesus was just being obedient to God, all the way, including losing his own life, if that's what it took. Jesus was a sort of Paschal lamb, as said by John the Baptist, a new Passover and central to a new covenant. The idea that there is a clear distinction between fundamentalist and evangelical was a good point to make. And the argument is well made out, that there is a load of stuff in the old testament which has been `sublated' by new theology/philosophy. This fact it ignored by `fundys'.
There was a lot in the book which I don't agree with and I think the author is just wrong, similar I suppose, in the way that he thinks that the fundys have got it all wrong. The author believes in `universalism', which is a waky Catholic idea; that everyone is saved, regardless as to whether they accept Christ or repent or anything. I don't believe that.
I believe what it says in John's gospel, that a man must be born again, and that no one comes to the Father except through Christ. Unlike others in the liberal wing, this author has not become an outright heretic.Read more ›
