Images of Atonement
[vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_wp_text text=”Do you know what the phrase ‘Jesus H. Christ’ refers to? These days, it’s terribly offensive, but its origins are actually sacred.
It comes from the latin phrase Iesus Hominum Salvator, which means ‘Jesus Christ, Savior of all Mankind.’
I confess I’m fascinated at the progression from doctrine to profanity. What has happened in our world that we would take something so pure and make it so vulgar?
How have we reduced the sacred to the profane?
By abbreviating Christ, we have robbed him of his richness, his mystery, and his transcendence…not only in this way, but in many others.
Images of Atonement is a survey of eight different atonement theologies–complete with personal testimonies, scriptural proofs, and even some children’s stories–to help you recomplexify your understanding of the marvelous majesty of Christ’s love.”][/vc_column][/vc_row]
