The Latest Blogging Carnivore.

Jim West has posted up the latest blog feast. Go and have a look at what he has posted up for us to devour. While all he has listed is of great interest, the one that interests me the most is the “Atonement Symposium”

The presentation by Daniel Kirk on “Cosmic Atonement Theory” is the one that draws me in.

Synopsis: Any viable theory of the atonement must indicate not only how Jesus takes care of the problem of a world in rebellion against God, but also how he enables the story of the world to arrive at its God-intended purpose. While drawing on the best of the Christus victor, penal substitution, and moral influence views, Cosmic Atonement draws unique attention to what each of them lack: the absolute necessity of Jesus’ humanity not merely to overcome human lack, but to fulfil the purposes for which God created people.

Now that is an interesting statement. How does Atonement fulfil the purposes for which God created us.
