What is the meaning of atonement in Swedenborg’s teachings? Some people view Jesus’s role as dying to pay the debt of humanity’s sins. Swedenborg disagrees, as that perspective contradicts the notion of an all-loving, wise God. In Swedenborg’s view, our desire for falsehood caused us to cut ourselves off from divine love and wisdom. Jesus then took human form and pushed evil away in the way that we are called to do. He showed us the way and created the steps to repentance and salvation. Watch this short clip to gain a clearer understanding of salvation and the role that Jesus plays in that process.
