This book demonstrates that God's laws—as in the laws of any country—are the basis upon which all justice rests. In addition, the atonement of Christ does not conflict with the Ten Commandments or any other laws of God. This work is a critical and exhaustive treatise on the plan of salvation as revealed in the Scriptures, showing its harmony with the principles of justice and mercy, its consistency with reason, and its final results as affecting the destiny of the human race.
By all who have faith in the power of the blood of Christ to cleanse from sin, the Atonement is considered to be the great central doctrine of the gospel. Many Christians, however, are asking if it is necessary to keep the Old Testament laws.
J. H. Waggoner, in 1884, was concerned that Christians had deviated from the truth of the Atonement doctrine by not appealing to principles of reason and law found in the Holy Scriptures. The atonement of Christ never conflicts with the Commandments of God, and this book demonstrates that fact.
