In this episode Jason first announces the news that this podcast is moving to the Bible Thumping Wingnut Network. This is the last published episode to this channel. After that Jason briefly discusses the Reformation and then goes into his presentation on the different Theories of the Atonement of Christ. This episode focuses on which theory fits the Biblical evidence and answers the question “How does a perfectly good, righteous and just God pardon guilty sinners without violating his own perfect justice?”
In this episode the intention was that Jason and Michael Yiannett discuss two topics, Free Will and Limited Atonement. Michael did not arrive in the hangout so Jason proceeded with a show and discussed the recent news about RC Sproul Jr. and then went into his talking points that were prepared for the debate on the topic of Free Will and Limited Atonement.
In this episode Jason continues the series that discusses the Doctrines of Grace. In this episode we focus on the doctrine of Limited Atonement (Particular Redemption). This doctrine teaches that the atonement of Christ on the cross was intended for and applied to the elect of God. It means that Christ completely saved certain individuals at the cross. The atonement was particular in its intention and effect but sufficient for all. This doctrine does not teach that Christ’s sacrifice was incapable of saving all people but that it was not intended for all people.
