Can God really see beyond a person's failures? Every believer occasionally struggles with doubt over their salvation. These feelings are more than discouraging; they underestimate Christ's complete sacrifice for sin. To fight the unrelenting guilt, believers need to meditate on every facet of Jesus's atonement. Join us as our guest clearly defines penal substitution, explains twelve things God does with believers' sin--including forgiving it, passing over it, and trampling it underfoot--as well as three things God never does, such as counting sins against believers. Contrasting a Christian's "eternal union" with God, which is certain, with "experiential communion," which can be disrupted by sin, he will help us find the freedom to love and serve God with a purified conscience.
