Delectable Mountains (or, What Is Your Understanding of the Atonement?)

Your salvation largely depends on what you believe happened at the cross, as our behaviors simply mirror our beliefs. Did God punish God with the literal wrath for the past, present, and future sins of only the elect, who will be inevitably saved from hell? Or did Jesus, as both high priest and sacrifice, lay down his life to make provision for all men to be made holy here and now? The Bible, your own conscience, and saints throughout the ages testify that you will not be saved from hell unless you stop sinning. The Christian life was not intended to be a desert of struggle and despair until death. Just as Bunyan's characters Christian and Hopeful arrived in the Delectable Mountains, you can–and must!–enter into the promised land with Jesus in this life!
