Only The Blood of a Godman - PSA Examined
How does the crucifixion of Christ work under Penal Substitutionary Atonement (PSA)? Does the suffering and death of Christ enable God to forgive men? Does God pour His wrath on Jesus, the most innocent man to ever live? Could God have chosen some other means to accomplish His purposes? Why could Jesus freely forgive repentant sinners, but God can't; as Christians don't we believe Jesus is God? This is Part 5 in a 7 Part Series exploring the 17 Claims comprising the doctrine known as Penal Substitution. Here, we detail and review claims 8 through 12 as formulated by Anselm of Canterbury and note some internal contradictions, as well as conflict with the Biblical data. Joining Idol Killer for the entirety of this series is Paul Vendredi.
