Jesus Creed

Atonement is “the radical newness of the practice of the gospel, as over against the tolerated violence of all other human practices.”
Jesus’ death is efficacious, not because it satisfies God… but “because it is the inauguration of the ‘political’ practice of forgiveness … The practice is itself continuing atonement.”
Answer:
Do you think atonement is something done for us or both done for us and something we practice?
