|Substitutionary Theory of Atonement|
The Penal-Substitution Theory of the atonement is the explanation that Jesus died on the cross as a substitute for sinners. God imputed (or moved) the guilt of our sins onto Christ and he, in our place, bore the punishment that we deserve. This was a full payment for sins, which satisfied both the wrath and the righteousness of God, so that He could forgive sinners without compromising His own holy standard.
