Atonement for Everyone: Interviews With Daniel Thimell

69 pages1 hour


In these interviews, Dr. Daniel Thimell explores the extent of Christ's atonement. In the first session, he describes the work of John McLeod Campbell, a Scottish pastor in the 1800s, who found that the people had no joy in Christ, because they were not worthy of his grace. They had missed the whole point of grace, in that grace is not based on how worthy we are. Jesus died for everyone, but universal atonement does not mean universal salvation, because God does not force people to respond to his gift. He has finished his work; our part (if you want to call it a part) is to believe it and be thankful for it. It is good news, not a burden for further obligations.
