    I find it interesting that of the levitical sacrificial system, only the sin offering (also called purification offering, Lev. 4:1 - 5:13, 6:24 - 30, 12:6 - 8) and the guilt offering (Lev. 5:14 - 6:7, 7:1 - 6, 12 - 18) are the only mandatory offerings.

    Since Christ fulfilled the letter of the law, His death would cover both sin and guilt, nullifying limited atonement as His death covered more than just guilt.

    In addition, the sacrificial system shows one does not have to be guilty in order for His death to be beneficial, i.e., infants and the MR / DD who are NOT guilty according to the law and the very definition of what guilt is.

    If Christ only died for the "elect", how do you explain away the sin offering (which Christ also fulfilled)?

    Hebrews tells us Jesus has perfected those who were sanctified.....the offering is only applied to the Elect;
    8Above when he said, Sacrifice and offering and burnt offerings and offering for sin thou wouldest not, neither hadst pleasure therein; which are offered by the law;

    9Then said he, Lo, I come to do thy will, O God. He taketh away the first, that he may establish the second.

    10By the which will we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.

    11And every priest standeth daily ministering and offering oftentimes the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins:

    12But this man, after he had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever, sat down on the right hand of God;

    13From henceforth expecting till his enemies be made his footstool.

    14For by one offering he hath perfected for ever them that are sanctified.
