Redemption in Christ

I continue to receive emails and questions from the listeners of Ancient Faith Radio about that particular aspect of Jesus as our savior and redeemer that have to do with justifying us before God, Jesus as the one who pays the debt that is necessary to deliver us or to ransom us, redeem us from the curse of the Law, from the wrath of God. There’s a great controversy about how that is to be understood and to be explained. And I continue to get questions about it, and it is something that is still very much debated today among Christians, how we understand the death of Jesus on the cross as a kind of vicarious sacrifice or a substitution…

And we also then heard President Obama’s State of the Union Address. And all of this was happening with the background of all the troubles in the United States Congress — the Senate, the House of Representatives — all the difficulties about the economy, about the debt, about cutting spending,…

In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, one God. Amen.

You are wondering, I’m sure, why your priest is celebrating the liturgy in his black vestments that we wear in holy week and at a funeral. You’re wondering, probably, who died, and I haven’t told you yet. Much, much worse than that, brothers and sisters. I wish that, instead of the cause for wearing black vestments today, I had only the sorrow to tell you that one of our beloved passed away. I don’t.
