Substitutionary Atonement


A Broadcast with R.C. Sproul

There are those who believe it is simply barbarian and prescientific to think of an atonement by which somebody pours out their own blood to satisfy the demands of God's justice. As Dr. Sproul continues with the theme of atonement he teaches that the idea of substitution is so deeply rooted in the whole Biblical concept of redemption that to eliminate substitution from our theology and from our Christology is, simply to discard the Scriptures all together.

Our Aim

God calls His people to be transformed by the renewing of their minds. This transformation of thinking God’s thoughts after Him is a daily pursuit. To aid you in this, Renewing Your Mind broadcasts a daily message and related resource offer that exposits the glories of God revealed in the Bible against the backdrop of culture, philosophy, apologetics, ethics, and church history. Think of it as bridging the gap between Sunday school and seminary—equipping you for the Christian life.
