I would like all Calvinists on this board, to explain John Calvin's words on Mark 14:24. The verse in question is thus: "And He said to them, this is my blood of the New Testament, which is shed for many" Here is what Calvin has to say, especially on the use of "many" "Mark 14:24. This is my blood. I have already remarked that, when we are told that the blood is to be shed--according to the narrative of Matthew--for the remission of sins, these words direct us to the sacrifice of the death of Christ, without the remembrance of which the Lord's Supper is never observed in a proper manner. And, indeed, it is impossible for believing souls to be satisfied in any other way than by being assured that God is pacified towards them. Which is shed for many. By the word many he means not a part of the world only, but the whole human race; for he contrasts many with one; as if he had said, that he will not be the Redeemer of one man only, but will die in order to deliver many from the condemnation of the curse. It must at the same time be observed, however, that by the words for you, as related by Luke--Christ directly addresses the disciples, and exhorts every believer to apply to his own advantage the shedding of blood Therefore, when we approach to the holy table, let us not only remember in general that the world has been redeemed by the blood of Christ, but let every one consider for himself that his own sins have been expiated" Did you see his own words on "many", that it refers to "but the whole human race" ? And, " that the world has been redeemed by the blood of Christ " So, we have it, John Calvin was NOT a believer of "Limited Atonement". Where, then does the 5 Points of "Calvinism" get its theology from? Should it not be changed to 4 Points?
