Soteriology #5 – Atonement: Substitution Theory

This week we looked at the seventh and final view of the atonement. This Substitution Theory states that the atonement is made on the Cross when Christ vicariously bore the exact penalty of His people, thereby placating the wrath of God and satisfying His righteousness. We compared and contrasted this with the other 6 views and found some compatibility. But the most complete answer is only when we understand Christ as our substitution and having paid the price for all our sins.
