In April, Tony Larsen spoke about the theological problems with the traditional atonement theory in Christianity. (This is the idea that God needed a human sacrifice before S/He could take back a sinful humanity.) This Sunday’s sermon will look at the psycho-spiritual consequences of this theology–and why it became a 3-step success formula for conversion. This is the last day of RE.
