“Philosophical Issues in the Atonement”

The British philosopher A. J. Ayer once remarked that Christianity is arguably the worst of the world’s religions because it rests, in Ayer’s words, on “the allied doctrines of original sin and vicarious atonement, which are intellectually contemptible and morally outrageous.” Three sorts of objections have been lodged against the doctrine of vicarious atonement: (1) Substitutionary punishment is incoherent; (2) Substitutionary punishment is unjust; and (3) Substitutionary punishment is unsatisfactory. In this talk I shall examine these three objections and defend the coherence, justice, and satisfactoriness of Christ’s substitutionary atonement for our sins.

William Lane Craig is Professor of Philosophy at Houston Baptist University and a Visiting Scholar at Talbot School of Theology in La Mirada, California.
