There are those that try and hold to OSAS and deny limited atonement. We are told that man has nothing to do with their salvation and nothing we can do can cause us to lose it. We are told that our salvation was bought and paid for unconditionally, and then they shy away from the logical ramifications of a limited atonement, as if though they can escape the logical ends of OSAS, which in this case is none other than double predestination and limited atonement. If God is the sole cause of ones salvation, and nothing we do or can do can in any way can affect our standing before God, then God alone is the cause and sustainer of our salvation. Man, being passive in regard to salvation, either being chose from the foundations of the world or not, and that by the causative choice of God, is placed completely outside of the loop of determining his destiny, leaving God alone as the sole planner, director, and cause of every end of man. Salvation, not being universal in scope, is limited to a specific number of elect. With God alone as the sole cause, what other than God limiting the elect could cause such a limitation? Something causes the number of saved to be limited. If not God limiting salvation, who or what is the cause of the limitation? It cannot be man, for again we have nothing to do with gaining or losing our salvation according to OSAS. It is of necessity a complete and utter contradiction of theological notions, to claim the validity of OSAS and at the same time deny a limited atonement. If I am in error, show us the’ cause’ of the limited number of saved. Surely impotent man cannot thwart the plans of God can he? By the way, has anyone heard of Charles Stanley?
