Salvation and Atonement Are for Everybody

“The circle of Atonement has no end.” (T-14.V.7)

We are all included in the Atonement. Nobody is outside, because we are all holding hands in a circle. If anybody were outside the circle, the Atonement principle would be broken for all.

And God does not allow that to happen. He saves all his children.

This phrase, “circle of Atonement,” has been selected by one of the organizations teaching A Course in Miracles, and a link to that site is in the blogroll (sidebar to this blog).

  1. Hi Celia, your current series on the concept of Atonement (ACIM) highlight the “progression” ( if that is the right word) that ACOL makes leading to direct experience of oneness as teachers of peace: not by explaining, as Chapter 14 does, even arguing that leads to intellectual understanding, but by us accepting who/what we are and then teach by example. I noticed that the word “Atonement” does not occur often in ACOL, if at all! May be it is no longer so relevant in the Time of Christ, since it is a given.
    Thank you so much for sharing your blog etc. Bless you.

      1. Hi Celia, it occurs to me to think that in ACOL the concept of “embrace” comes nearest to “(Circle of) Atonement”….yes? the very word “atonement” is so ego-linked, e.g. with the vicarious salvation by Jesus, that it requires a a lot of forgiveness…possibly the reason why ACIM uses it rather often. I can imagine that Helen S. had a lot of resistance to that very word too. Ken Wapnick writes about that in Chapter 16 ( and elsewhere) of “Love Does Not Condemn”. The same chapter (16) in “Absence from Felicity” describes Helen’s ambivalent feelings towards Jesus. Bless you. Ben

      2. hi Celia, thank you. Not only Jesus’ embrace of us, but our embrace of him !….somewhere it says that a bear-hug is a mutual act of love. bless.
