    • 4. Did Jesus Die For ALL?
      • "The question which we are to discuss under the subject of 'Limited Atonement' is, Did Christ offer up Himself a sacrifice for the whole human race, for every individual without distinction or exception; or did His death have special reference to the elect? In other words, was the sacrifice of Christ merely intended to make the salvation of all men possible, or was it intended to render certain the salvation of those who had been given to Him by the Father? Arminians hold that Christ died for all men alike, while Calvinists hold that in the intention and secret plan of God Christ died for the elect only " (Loraine Boettner, The Reformed Doctrine of Predestination, p. 150).
    • 5. Did Jesus Die For ALL?
      • If God has elected some and not others to eternal life, then plainly the primary purpose of Christ's work was to redeem the elect" (Ibid., p. 151).
      • "We believe that God has an elect people whom he has chosen unto eternal salvation. We believe that the atonement of Christ was for that chosen number and no one else" (Elder Eddie K. Garrett, Primitive Baptist, in The Christian Baptist, March, 1972).
    • 6. LIMITED ATONEMENT “ Christ’s redeeming work was intended to save the elect only and actually secured salvation for them. His death was substitutionary… in the place of certain specified sinners.” (The Reformed Faith by L. Boettner p. 26-27) CALVINISM A SYSTEM OF INFIDELITY T. U. L. I. P.
    • 7. Christ Died for ALL People
      • 1 John 2:2 - "not for ours only, but also, for the sins of the world."
      • John 6:51 - He gave His flesh for the life of the world (Jn. 3:16)
      • 2 Corinthians 5:14 - "if one died for all, then were all dead."
      • Hebrews 2:9- Note "by the grace of God," Christ "tasted death for every man“
      • The grace of God that bringeth salvation "hath appeared to all men" (Titus 2:11), and it is this grace which sent Christ to die for all.
    • 8. Christ Died for ALL People
      • 1 Timothy 2:3 For this [is] good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, 4 who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth. 5 For [there] [is] one God and one Mediator between God and men, [the] Man Christ Jesus, 6 who gave Himself a ransom for all , to be testified in due time.
    • 9. Christ Died for ALL People
      • 1 Timothy 4:10 For to this [end] we both labor and suffer reproach, because we trust in the living God, who is [the] Savior of all men, especially of those who believe.
      • 2 Peter 3:9 The Lord is not slack concerning [His] promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.
    • 10. Christ Died for ALL People
      • Matthew 11:28 "Come to Me, all [you] who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 29 "Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 "For My yoke [is] easy and My burden is light."
      • Romans 5:6 For when we were still without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly.
    • 11. Consequences of Limited Atonement
      • It restricts God's love and grace (2 Cor. 5:14; Heb. 2:9)
      • It negates God's will to save all men (1 Tim. 2:4; 2 Pet. 3:9)
      • It makes a mockery of the great commission (Matt. 28:19; Mk. 16:15, 16). Why preach to "every creature" if all are not subject? See Acts 10:34, 35.
    • 12. Consequences of Limited Atonement

          • 1 Cor 15:2 By this gospel you are saved, if you hold firmly to the word I preached to you. Otherwise, you have believed in vain.

          • 1 Cor 8:11-12 And because of your knowledge shall the weak brother perish, for whom Christ died? NKJV
    • 15. Can “Set Aside” The Grace of God
      • Gal 2:21 -I do not set aside the grace of God; for if righteousness comes through the law, then Christ died in vain." NKJV
      • Gal 4:11 -I am afraid for you, lest I have labored for you in vain. NKJV
      • Gal 5:2-4 - Indeed I, Paul, say to you that if you become circumcised, Christ will profit you nothing. 3 And I testify again to every man who becomes circumcised that he is a debtor to keep the whole law. 4 You have become estranged from Christ, you who attempt to be justified by law; you have fallen from grace. NKJV
