The Atonement: Real or Potential?

This past Sunday morning was a communion Sunday at Grace Community Church, and so John MacArthur took a break from his regular series in the Gospel of Mark and preached a sermon called, "The Atonement: Real or Potential?"

I thought it was an extremely helpful presentation of the Biblical doctrine of the particularity of the atonement of Jesus Christ. What was happening on the cross from a divine perspective? Why and for whom did Christ die?

I encourage you to download the sermon. It is well worth the listen.

And you shall call His name Jesus, for He will save His people from their sins.
- Matthew 1:21 -

What a joy to listen to Mike - thanks.

'Potential salvation' - now that's truly limiting the atonement.

The Gospel - still not over it!
