Sadly, it is not uncommon to find bitter contention amidst those discussions centering on the atonement of Christ. Queries regarding the atonement's intent and extent normally govern such contests, and the results are often less than productive. This debate is not a new one, and it has only intensified in recent years. In its worst form, this battle is draining the church of her vitality and joy, while robbing Christ of His glory as the victorious Lamb of God. However, the church must refute such contention and reclaim the joy, motivation, and power of the Gospel ministry by looking intently at the One who calls Himself the eternal Victor: The Lord Jesus Christ. All Nations Under God looks to restore the true hope and joy of the church by reclaiming the Biblical vision of the Lamb of God who was slain for our sin.
