The Sanctuary – Part 3 – Is Love Enough? – Atonement in the Sanctuary

In the history of the Christian church the doctrine of the atonement has developed along two distinct lines, designated by the words “subjective” and “objective”.  Often these two aspects seem to be at odds with one another.  The subjective aspect affirms that the atonement exercises primarily a moral influence on man, for the sinners benefit.  Those…

The Sanctuary – Part 1

In the sanctuary service, God met His people were they were.
