Do any of you believe in a general atonement here? It is my understanding that this was once a common position among baptists. The General atonement as opposed to particular atonement or universal atonement. I think it is the most consistent with the various non-cal position on the BB. To give more detail, it means that Christ paid the price to forgive sin in general. No particular sinner was forgiven but the potential was made in a general fashion so that every sinner, without exception COULD be saved. By the way, both arminians and 4 point calvinists could believe this.
