Today I am sharing a sermon I heard recently.
“In My Place, Condemned He Stood” is preached by Pastor Carl Muller of Trinity Baptist Church in Burlington, Ontario. In this sermon, Pastor Muller responds to those who would deny the doctrine of Penal Substitutionary Atonement, such as Bruxy Cavey of The Meeting House. In fact, Bruxy’s erroneous statements that Penal Substitutionary Atonement is a novel doctrine that “goes beyond Scripture” are directly quoted as “perhaps the most disturbing example” of those rejecting the doctrine. For more direct quotes from Bruxy on Penal Substitution click here.
Pastor Muller goes on to lay out the case for Penal Substitution as a main theme of Scripture from Genesis to Revelation. “If you want to get rid of this (Penal Substitution), toss your Bible out! It’s so part of the warp and woof, part of the very fabric of the Scriptures, you have to destroy the Scriptures to get rid of it!” Amen! And I would say that is exactly what Bruxy has done, documented here.
He makes the case that Penal Substitution is biblical, necessary, and glorious. “We aren’t going to debate it, we are going to glory in it.”
“If this doesn’t excite you, then you’re dead! And that’s a terrible issue for you, because how can you listen to what the Bible says about Jesus and His sacrifice for sinners and it doesn’t move you, and it doesn’t thrill you? What that says is that your eyes are blind, and you can look right at the sun and not see any light!”
It’s an excellent sermon by a man who honours Christ’s Word in the pulpit.
