Recently I posted a question on the love of God and if the elect are the only ones going to heaven then how does God express His love to the non elect. This is a follow-up on that question. First let me say I totally believe in God's election. However I also believe in free will. In other words I do not believe that He violates our will to save us. He chose and we freely accept=free will. That being said if the bible clearly states that Christ died for the whole world, not just the elect. 1John 2:2 why do some feel that He does not love the non elect with the same mind as He loves the elect as it was the same atonement?
