My Take on the Atonement

How the Atonement Works

Here is an explanation of the atonement that works, even if you don’t believe in God or Christ, and if you do, it still works as an explanation.

Why do we think we need a savior? We need to have the ideal of somebody so big and powerful enough and smart enough who has earned the right, through His sacrifice, to forgive us of our sins. The biggest problem we have is forgiving ourselves, but if a being like I just described can forgive us, then we can forgive ourselves.

Christ suffered and died terribly that He might draw all men unto Himself, or in other words, to get our attention.

It is literally our faith in such a being that saves us.

Here’s the extra added part for people who do believe in God. Each of us is part of God. Even atheists have a conscience and a sense of right and wrong. That’s a part of God living in you, whether you choose to call it God, the universe, or whatever. Sin separates us from the rest of God, or from your conscience. If you can’t forgive yourself, then God can’t forgive you. As you judge others, so you will be judged.

  1. Interesting take on the ‘whether you choose to call it God,’ or something else. It reminds me… Since you’re a science guy, I’m wondering if you’ve ever heard of The Divine Cosmos with David Wilcock, Its like PR, only from a science perspective. “The Law of One” with “I am Ra,” is like a trip down Deja-vu lane. I’m lov’n how God will get to you from so many different paths no matter what you believe. He is so LOVING and merciful.


  2. I said that because I have a really New Age brother who believes that God is our “Higher Self”, and some atheist friends on Facebook. I’m trying to show that the Atonement is a universal idea that applies to everybody, and I really believe that the hardest person to forgive is ourselves. Thanks for your interest and feedback.
