The atonement is based on our desire to be a part of love. God made it available to us, and we are to believe it. Our sins are borne only in the sense that Jesus took upon himself our human condition, having been given that condition in the form of our body, by his Father.
Inasmuch as he suffered the fallen condition of man, did he suffer “our” sins. By overcoming his own body’s defects [which involved the fallen condition of man] and thereby gaining eternal life, he was able to “draw all men unto him” by his demonstration of love, sacrifice and righteousness on our behalf.
In recognising the love that lay behind this action, and believing in its truth, we are able to present ourselves, through faith, to Him for infilling of the Spirit, which is his life force. [which is love] Within this recognition lies the acknowledgement of a love which has dealt with our sin by and with his love, and rendered it impotent to lay any claim on us.
This is true and declared and proven by his action in his son for our sake. He has shown that his love is more than a match for our sin and everything attached to our sin and our human sinful condition. By so doing he has proved that his love is love everlasting and that his love is always forgiving, and can do nothing else, since he IS love.
The removal of our sin lies true and proven in that where his love is, sin is not. This simply means that we swap our sin for his love. This is only dependent on us believing in his love for us, that by the death of Jesus he has removed, terminated, the power of sin to cause death, and the ability of death to hold us in its power.
“He has abolished death”. Sin still causes spiritual death, but this death has been dealt with in Jesus body and now becomes of no consequence to those wishing to be devoid of its consequences. Once we were under its condemnation, but then sin and death themselves were condemned in his own body, and suffered the consequences of any “entity” that is devoid of his love. Though death was condemned, life was liberated for him and for us.
“The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law”. By his loving forgiveness the “law of sin and death” has been rendered inoperable, by the authority of the nature of love. “But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory in Christ”.
Sin and death have no right to stand before righteous love, righteous forgiveness, because LOVE IS RIGHTEOUS OF ITSELF, it requires no justification. [love covers a multitude of sins]. Love forgives, because love only desires to seek and save that which is lost. God gains nothing by the death of a sinner. He wishes all to come to a knowledge of the truth.
The death of Christ proved the action and nature of love and of God by freely providing the Spirit of life [which freely gives life] to all who accept it [Him] by faith in this act which in itself was his forgiveness towards us. [he himself is our forgiveness]. The nature of God’s love is in opposition to any structure or substance which is not of love. It is Christ and anti-Christ, paper and fire, its very nature removes sin as it involves itself [himself] with whatever is sinful, and either destroys it, converts it, or removes it.
