boersma: addendum

I picked up Hans Boersma's book on atonement theology again and ran across a footnote in which he does explicitly make some appropriate distinctions about the place of violence in a fallen world as opposed to its embeddedness created finitude as such. But I still find his overall account a bit muddled on the topic and it doesn't seem to me that he really gets any mileage out of the distinction on the level of ontology. I did, however, want to note that he does, in fact, note the distinction.
