I do not claim to be a scholar but I have studied the doctrine of salvation to some extent and I just can't figure out how anyone could deny the sovereign grace of God. 4 of the points of Calvanism seem quite solid to me but one isn't an that is limited attonement. It seems that on the one hand God only intended to save those whom he predestined (and that word IS in the Bible!) The way I have seen it is like when you go to an amusement park. The price of admission is sufficient for all of the rides. When you go, you know you are going to ride a certian number of rides, specific rides but the nature of the ticket was such that you had paid the price to ride all that you you wanted to. Does this sound reasonable to any of you? I am not being dogmatic on this, I am really trying to learn.
