Did He or Didn't He?

Did Jesus make propitiation possible or did he actually make propitiation? That's a big question with big implications and we will be discussing it as we talk about the extent of the atonement on Tuesday, November 12. Read pp.208-228 of Horton's Pilgrim Theology where the topic of ascension will also be covered.

"General atonement is like a great wide bridge with only half an arch; it does not go across the stream: it only professes to go half way; it does not secure the salvation of anybody" (Spurgeon).

Here's the Al Mohler address delivered at BYU that I referenced Nov. 5. It is a great example of tactful truth telling that does not compromise. HT to Chad Hansen for sending the link.
