The Thing, & Not the Thing

The central Christian belief is that Christ’s death has somehow put us right with God and given us a fresh start. A good many theories have been held as to how it works; what all Christians are agreed on is that it does work…Theories about Christ’s death are not Christianity: they are explanations about how it works.
