  • Penal Substitutionary Atonement - Defend and Confirm Podcast

  • Debunking Progressive Attacks Against Penal Substitution - Chris Rosebrough

    Progressive Christianity is no friend of Penal Substitutionary Atonement. They flip the truth that God is love to be "Love is God".

  • He Will Sprinkle Many Nations - The White Horse Inn - #1444

    In verse 15 of Isaiah 52 we’re told that the suffering servant “will sprinkle many nations.” What’s interesting is that this word “sprinkle,” is the same one we find in Leviticus 16:14 which speaks of sacrificial blood being “sprinkled” on the mercy seat. In other words, Isaiah is saying that the...
