Dr Charles Hodge, who was a leading Calvinist, had this to say in a chapter in his Systematic Theology, entitled “For Whom did Christ die”? “In the third place, the question does not concern the suitableness of the atonement. What was suitable for one was suitable for all. The righteousness of Christ, the merit of his obedience and death, is needed for justification by each individual of our race, and therefore is needed by all. It is no more appropriate to one man than to another. Christ fulfilled the conditions of the covenant under which all men were placed. He rendered the obedience required of all, and suffered the penalty which all had incurred; and therefore his work is equally suited to all. (Volume II, p.545) It is evident from the passage above, that, though Hodge did believe in a Limited Atonement, yet, like Robert Dabney and John Calvin himself, does use language that shows that the death of Christ was not altogether “limited”. When Hodge uses “all” in the above passage, it is not done so to denote the “elect” only. This can be seen by his words, “each individual of our race”, which can only be taken to mean just that, the whole human race. It is also noteworthy to see Hodge also say, that Christ, “suffered the penalty which all had incurred”, “and therefore his work is equally suited to all” I have already shown elsewhere, that Dr Dabney on John 3:16, and 1 John 2:2, shows that the language used in these places, does not support the Calvinistic teaching on Limited Atonement. Likewise, Calvin on Mark 14:24 uses language that clearly can only apply to the whole human race. There is no doubt, that the candid mind will have to admit, that it is not “cut and dry”, that Jesus’ death for intended for the elect only. As we have seen from three Calvinistic theologians, that the Biblical data does not support their “theory” of Limited Atonement.
