Small Points of Theology

“Last and most important, it is exactly this which explains what is so inexplicable to all the modern critics of the history of Christianity. I mean the monstrous wars about small points of theology, the earthquakes of emotion about a gesture or a word. It was only a matter of an inch; but an inch is everything when you are balancing” (G.K. Chesterton, Orthodoxy).

This quote from the Roman Catholic God-hater Chesterton reminded me of the following article:

Gospel Atonement

The “tolerant Calvinists” described in the linked article Gospel Atonement are those who treat the cross of Jesus Christ MUCH LESS THAN a “small point of theology” — they treat it as NOTHING.
