The following is an EXACT quote from the textbook written by Dr. James P. Boyce "Abstract of Systematic Theology". For those Southern Baptist who don't know who Dr. Boyce is ... He co-founded The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary (the SBC first seminary) and taught the Systematic Theology course there from his own textbook. He is the foundation of the Southern Baptist Convention. And this is what he thought about Arminians. The sixth theory of the Atonement is that of the Arminians, who hold that Christ died, and that for sin; but only in the sense that makes it consistent for God to offer salvation to men on the ground of evangelical obedience, and not perfect legal obedience. This theory teaches a general atonement without any application of it on the part of God. Connected with the doctrine of sufficient grace to each man, it supposes that the individual does, or does not exercise faith, and obedience, and thus secures eternal life or loses it. The objections to this theory are: 1. “That it gives an indefinite conception of what Christ did. Either it involves no satisfaction to divine justice and to the law, or it implies universal satisfaction. In the first case, it dishonors God, in the second it forces us to hold the doctrine of universal salvation.” What is meant by the expression, that “he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness,” if God is not justly under obligations, for what Christ did, to give salvation to all for whom he died? 2. If it be said that the object was simply to make salvation possible for all, the reply is that this is not what the Scriptures represent. They speak positively pf salvation as [rpcured, not the means of salvation; and of certain salvation, not possible salvation. “ The effects of Christ’s death are spoken of in Scripture as reconciliation and justification, (Romans 5:10, Eph. 2:16) remission of sins, (Eph. 1:7) peace (Eph. 2:14) deliverance from wrath, (I Thess. 1:10) from death, (Heb. 2:14) from the curse of the law, (Gal. 3:13) from sin ( I Peter 1:18). (Hodge’s Outline, P. 314, 1st Edition). We are spoken of as justified when ungodly. 3. This view of atonement is utterly incompatible with the Scripture doctrines of Innate Corruption, Regeneration, Election, Justification, Adoption and Sanctification. Every proof of the true doctrine on these points is an argument against it. (The Arminian theory) 4. This theory makes it possible that Christ should have died in vain. 5. This theory makes salvation partly of God and partly of man, in the most objectionable form. It represents God as permitting Christ to die that the demands of the law may be lowered.
