Was Jesus PUNISHED by the Father? | Challenging Penal Substitution | Joshua Tongol

To INTERVIEW or have Josh SPEAK at an event:


If you'd like to support our ministry, you may do so here:

What is wrong with the EVANGELICAL GOSPEL? Penal substitutionary theory is at the heart of the evangelical gospel. BUT what if it is WRONG?

(Please not that this video is not necessarily meant to give a full-blown alternative theory to the atonement. Rather, it is meant to merely provoke questions, create dialogue, and point out the problems of penal substitution.)

Why does it matter? Our understanding of the Cross shapes our understanding of how we view God. And how we view God shapes the way we live.

Problems with penal substitution:

-Divides the Trinity
-Distorts forgiveness
-Contradicts the life and teachings of Jesus Christ
-Misunderstands justice
-Never found in parabolic form
