"As no man is excluded from calling upon God, the gate of salvation is set open to all men; neither is there any other thing which keepeth us back from entering in, save only our own unbelief." - John Calvin "What was demanded for the salvation of one was demanded for the salvation of all. Every man is required to satisfy the demands of the law. No man is required to do either more or less. If those demands are satisfied by a representative or substitute, his work is equally available for all...He did all that was necessary, so far as a satisfaction to justice is concerned, all that is required for the salvation of all men." -C. Hodge [Christ's atonement has indeed] "removed the legal impediments out of the way of all men." - A. Hodge "God invites all indiscriminately to salvation through the Gospel, but the ingratitude of the world is the reason why this grace, which is equally offered to all, is enjoyed by few." - John Calvin Do you agree that all legal impediments have been satisfied by Christ's atoning work for every individual, as these Calvinists apparently do? Or are you one of those who believe that the atoning work only satisfies the legal requirements for the elect? If so, how do you defend the nature of the universal Gospel appeal to all mankind?
