Here is a view that I found. What is wrong with it? I imagine both Calvinists and Arminians will not like it! That would be a plus for it! The Atonement of Christ 1. The VALUE of Christ’s shed blood is sufficient for all men. a. The same blood would had to be shed (unto death) to save one sinner or every sinner in the world. b. Hence, the limitation is not in the value of Christ's blood 2. The EXTENT of Christ’s passive obedience or sufferings is sufficient for all men. a. He would not have had to suffer any longer (eternity) if He had suffered for one or for all of Adam’s race b. He would not have had to suffer more intensely (full wrath of God) if he had suffered for one or for all of Adam’s race 3. The EXTENT of Christ’s active obedience or righteousness is sufficient for all men. a. His righteousness could not increase or decrease as there is but one constant standard God demands (perfection). Perfection is required if He saved one or all of Adam’s race b. He would still have to be “without sin” to satisfy God’s law for one or for all of Adam’s race. 4. The Gospel OFFER of the Atonement is based upon its SUFFICIENCY rather than upon its application a. It is offered through the gospel alone – Rom. 1:17; 2 Cor. 5:18-19 b. It is offered conditionally “whosoever will” – Jn. 3:16 c. It is offered universally wherever the gospel is preached – Isa. 45:22 d. The Gospel is God’s POWER of salvation to all who believe it. 5. The DESIGN of the Atonement a. God designed it to be sufficient for one person as much as for the whole world b. God designed it to be Efficient to save all who meet the conditions of the gospel c. The atonement is God’s PROVISION to save all who believe the Gospel. 6. The DESIGN of Election a. God foresaw universal rejection of the gospel by mankind – Psa. 14:2; Rom. 3:9-10 b. God in His grace determined to save a great number of these rejectors (the elect) in spite of their foreseen resistance while allowing others (non-elect) to freely continue in their rejection c. Election is God’s choice to secure the voluntary obedience of the elect to the terms of the gospel thus making the atonement efficiently applicable only to the elect. d. Election is God’s PURPOSE to save a certain number of Adam’s race 7. The Covenant Work of the Holy Spirit a. To convict the world of sin b. To secure the willingness of the elect to repent and believe c. To apply the atonement to the elect.
