Atonement Quotes:

"Christ is to us just what His Cross is, all that Christ was in Heaven or on earth was put into what He did there, on this the whole church rest. If you move faith from that center you have driven the nail into the Church's coffin. The church is then doomed to death and it is only a matter of time until she expires." - P.T. Forsyth

"Leave out the cross and you have killed the religion of Jesus, atonement by the blood of Jesus is not an arm of Christian truth it is the very heart of it." - C. H. Spurgeon

"The atonement is not a part of Christianity - it IS Christianity!" - Oliver B. Greene

"A Christianity which is not Cross centered is not Christianity at all." - Leon Morris

I appreciate your quotes. Where is the quote from Leon Morris from? I just started reading The Apostolic Preaching of the Cross. Might it be there?

Hey Jerry
Thanks for the comment, I heard that quote in a John MacArthur sermon. Can't remember which one and he didn't give a source for that quote. Have you tried to google it?

Thanks. I'll do some legwork (or finger work at google) and see what happens.

By the way, I think I happened on your blog through technorati, and I have to say, I like what you are blogging. We think a lot a like, you and I. I'm going to add you to my blogroll. I notice you like those quotations. If you haven't already, hit this blog and you'll find a ton of great quotes and some good insight.

I just remembered Morris has a book titled "The Atonement", the quote could be from there.

Great blog. Keep up the good work. Maybe if enough of us continue striving for orthodoxy and real Christian faith the church will wake up. God Bless!
