Fundamentals of the Christian Faith in the Light of the Gospels

The Righteous Have Always Existed in the World Says the Gospel: Doctrine of Atonement Contrary to Biblical Teaching
Both Zacharias and his wife were righteous and blameless, and their son John, too, who had been raised as a prophet by the Most High God, was righteous and great and, through his sublime teaching, people also became noble and righteous. In view of these truths stated by the Gospel, the doctrine of Atonement is evidently baseless and irrational; rather it is dead against the true and sensible teaching of the Bible. To regard such a dogma as a cardinal principle of religion and to ascribe it to Jesus Christ is highly objectionable.
