Easter is upon us again, so we thought it was a fine time to look at the atonement again. So we popped over to Bristol to chat with Alan Mann. Alan asks the question, what could the atonement mean for a society that doesn’t consider itself sinful in any traditional sense. Rather than ‘sin’ Alan believes the issue we now face is shame and it is this that Jesus’s death needs to set us free from. So tune in for an intriguing conversation.

    Wayne Jacobsen says:
    What really happened on the cross? Much of Christianity has postured God as an angry, bloodthirsty deity needing to satisfy his justice by crushing the most innocent human who had ever lived. But what if it wasn’t that? What if Father and Son were working together to destroy sin in the human race, so that we could make peace with God and each other in this broken world?

    Understanding the cross as a cure for sin, rather than a punishment of it lies at the core of everything I believe and have experienced about God’s love. I cover it in He Loves Me and in greater detail in Transitions, free recordings available here.


    I say:

    Especially 2,3 and 4 in the transition series. These were a revelation to me, sin and shame.

    • This is great, thanks so much Wayne. ‘He Loves Me’ is next on my reading list. Looking forward to it.
