Creating an Idol

"If we are defective in understanding the character of God or understanding the nature of sin, it is inevitable that we will come to the conclusion that an atonement was not necessary."
From The Truth of the Cross (pg 15) by R.C. Sproul

I am pressed for time, but this is especially true when speaking of Justice. If we do not understand the characteristic of God's Justice (as well as the absolute gross nature of our sin against a Holy God) we may not see the act of Penal Substitution as being necessary. Other theories may suffice.

However, when certain characteristics of God are neglected, ignored, or just misunderstood, we no long have the God who is, but an idol that we created.

More to come.
