|Title:||Developing An Ecclesiology Based Upon Kaleidoscope Atonement Theory|
|Keywords:||kaleidoscope, sin, atonement, church,|
|Abstract:||<p> Kaleidoscope theory inspires the beliefs and practices of the church in a variety of ways. The atonement is God's action on behalf of humanity to remove the barrier and repercussions of sin. The works of Joel Green and Mark Baker have been instrumental in advancing the kaleidoscopic perspective. These works have called into question the current articulation and practices of the atonement within the western church. Kaleidoscope theory inspires a church that encourages a diversity of views on the atonement. Furthermore, the church continues the work of interpreting the scriptural account of the atonement in a culturally sensitive manner. Yet, every interpretation of the atonement must account for the creative purpose of God, Jesus' life and death, and the propulsion towards community. The church embraces the tensions within competing reflections upon the atonement. Kaleidoscope theory encourages the church towards atonement-filled teaching and practice.</p>|
