Now, I have a few questions. This idea came from Anslem. That the penal substitution was Christ. i.e. the sacrific/ransom had to be equal to the magnitude of the person being offended. Yet our Church considers Anslem a heretic and his dogma of "Penal Substitution". So, why then is this being introduced in our church? Please PLEASE correct me if I'm wrong. Perhaps I'm misunderstanding something... I'm not sure.
Consequently, any sin requires unlimited atonement.
This atonement should be provided by a person who is:
1. Unlimited :To be able to provide this unlimited atonement the Savior has to be unlimited.
2. Sinless :The Savior has to be free from sin to be able to redeem others, or else he would need
3. Human: Since human beings committed the sin, therefore, a human being should pay the price.
4. Mortal : Since the wages of sin is death (Rom 6:23), therefore, the savior has to be mortal.
Our Lord Jesus Christ is:
1. Unlimited : He said, “I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. Who is and Who
was and Who is to come, the Almighty” (Rev 1 : 8 ).
2. Sinless : Archangel Gabriel said to the Virgin, “That Holy One who is to be born will be called the
Son of God” (Lk 1:35). Our lord said, “Which of you convicts Me of sin?” (Jn 8:46).
3. Human : Our Lord was called the Son of Man several times, also, the Bible documents that on
several occasions He was thirsty, hungry, tired, sleeping, etc…
4. Mortal : Even though our Lord is immortal due to His divinity, he assumed a human nature that
was liable to die.
