    Brother DC....we don't use the term, Limited Atonement ..... Christ is not limited in any way. His atonement is of infinite value

    Do you use Infinite Atonement?

    That would be TUIIP. See that just doesn't sound right. :laugh:

    just saying that a times appears even the cals have a hard time defining what is meant by that aspect of the theology, and the critics take it as meaning limited in value, that saying NOT able to save all, as not payment enough!

    I know what you were saying however there are many who read it do not understand....so I took the teachable moment. Forgive me if I appeared rude in my response to you. The fact is that all doctrine of grace believers stand firm in affirming that the value of Jesus death was so great---and as I said, actually infinite---that its more than sufficient to atone for all the sins of all people in all ages of this world. :godisgood:
