The cross and the garden

I don’t know what to think—i give y’all better than a week to talk about lust, and all i get is one comment.

Apparently sex does not, in fact, sell.

Oh well. I’m back, so on with the three or four times a week schedule, starting with:

Where’s the doctrinal evidence behind the common Mormon meme that Gethsemane was of bigger importance to the Atonement than Golgotha? Is it just a way of distinguishing ourselves from mainstream Xian groups that focus on Christ’s miracle on the cross, or is there something deeper?

I know. I was very disappointed.

Gethsemane is where he actually atoned for our sins. He completed the sacrifice on the cross. I think we focus on Gethsemane because it's a personal, he suffered for MY sins there, sort of thing. (And we all know how cool most Mormons think suffering is.)
