All three land under the banner of the singular they. We use 'the singular they' a great deal in conversational English. It's also starting to be common in newspapers, blogs and books. But in some staid circles it is distained. But it's been around since 1450 and it's not going to go away any time soon.
Some famous authors used it : Lord Chesterfield, Langston Hughes, Jane Austen, George Eliot, William Thackeray, Milton and Shakespeare himself. So it has a fine pedigree.

The Holy Scriptures which teach the unlimited atonement are clear.
1 John 2:2, ". . . And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world. . . ."
1 Timothy 2:6, ". . . Who gave himself a ransom for all, . . ."
Romans 14:9, ". . . For to this end Christ both died, and rose, and revived, that he might be Lord both of the dead and living. . . ."
Romans 5:8, ". . . But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners,...

I had two grounds for the objection:
(1) The source was apparently a church of Christ pastor, had pastored 9 CofC churches, and been employed by a major CofC college. In case you don't know,...
Many in our day have walked way from Confessions of faith, and biblical catechisms.
Many lack the discipline to work through them and grow from the wisdom given to others.
Some suggest we do not need God-given teachers, or God-given teachers who commit to putting solid teaching down in books, and commentaries. Confessions of faith and catechisms protect us from such errors as these;

What are the arguments for and against corporate election?
"Most simply, corporate election refers to the choice of a group, which entails the choice of its individual members by virtue of their membership in the group. Thus, individuals are not elected as individuals directly, but secondarily as members of the elect group. Nevertheless, corporate election necessarily entails a type of individual election because of the inextricable...
Notice God's purpose for angels in the particular redemption of humans.
New International Version
Are not all angels ministering spirits sent to serve those who will inherit salvation?
New Living Translation
Therefore, angels are only servants—spirits sent to care for people who will inherit salvation.
English Standard Version
Are they not all ministering spirits sent out to serve for the sake of those who are to inherit salvation?
