I want to ask a favour from those of you who enjoy pondering theology. I wrote this piece a little while ago when some friends and I were discussing the atonement. We were basically admitting that we didn't understand it, and we were surprised when we went to the theology books to discover that it hasn't been really clear cut since the beginning of Church history.

So the piece I wrote was me trying to figure out what the atonement meant. I realize that to some it may lean toward vile heresy so I wanted to invite criticism. I wouldn't mind someone with a strong grasp of the subject to shooting holes in the idea so I can ponder it some more.

Well, if any of you kept reading after the word "theology", here it is (click on "Grace at the Cross").
