A Quiz on the Atonement

The cross of Christ and what happened upon it stands at the very center of the Christian faith. “He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; by his wounds you have been healed” (1 Peter 2:24). This is the great doctrine of the atonement. Charles Spurgeon says, “To deny the great doctrine of atonement by the blood of Jesus Christ is to hamstring the gospel, and to cut the throat of Christianity.” Thus, we must understand, believe, and celebrate it.

How well do you know the doctrine of the atonement? This quiz is designed to help you find out.

    Exactly the Purpose God Intended

    General revelation serves exactly the purpose God intended for it—it reveals his power and divine nature. But, its message, while important, is insufficient—insufficient by design. Though general revelation tells us about the existence of God, it does not tell us about how to be reconciled to God.
