Christ and His Substitutionary Atonement

Over the past week, I've had the opportunity to have several conversations about the Gospel, as well as, different theological "camps." What we always want to keep in focus is Christ and His substitutionary atonement. Christ and His work upon the cross are the height of the Gospel. Everything else is derivative of this act. Whether you believe regeneration precedes faith or you believe faith precedes regeneration neither of these is the primary belief with regard to salvation. What you believe about Christ and the atonement is and will always be most important. May we be tenacious with regard to a Christological focus as we think on and share the Gospel.
