    If Christ died for all sin as you say. Either all will be saved, or, since most perish, his death didn't pay for sin at all, and you are mistaken.

    Again, this is a huge assumption that you must address instead of relying on a fallacy.

    Christ died for the sin of man (in toto). All are not saved. There are no "unpaid" sins.

    But sin sends people to hell. And if Jesus paid for all sin as you say, then either you are mistaken or he did not pay for any sins on the cross. Since nearly all perish.

    Again, why the focus on Calvin? He did not come up with these doctrines. If Calvin were the only one to teach these, if he truly came up with them, then I MIGHT be inclined to give your logic some merit, but he didn't.

    If you cannot or will not address your assumptions there is really nothing to discuss.

    I will leave you with the assurance that sin is no entiry that sends people to Hell.

    There is nothing to discuss. If you are right about universal atonement, and all are not saved. Christ did not pay for sin at all.

    I think most focus on Calvin because the Institutes formed the basis of the doctrines. While Beza and the following generation was more important (in the doctrines) than Calvin, it always pointed back to the Institutions.

    Probably more importantly is that the term "Calvinism" had already been attached to the sect by the Lutherans (due to sacramental differences). So the "Doctrines of Grace" came out of the "Calvinist" sect.

    Calvin preferred "Reformed".

    Yes and I ask you to be honest:

    12 Now this I say, that every one of you saith, I am of Paul; and I of [Calvin]; and I of Cephas; and I of Christ.
    13 Is Christ divided? was [Calvin]crucified for you? or were ye baptized in the name of [Calvin]?

    That is why.

    Then drop his name. Preach the Gospel and baptize believers.

    Reformed is much more acceptable to me - no association with a man.

    That is where you are mistaken, but I think it may be because you cannot see how Christ could have died for human sin in toto except universal salvation be the result.

    If you could understand the opposing view (within Calvinism itself) then an interesting discussion may be had.

    The reason I think this is you have continued to say the same thing (if this then that) without defending the assumptions inherent between the cause and effect. It is poor form and a fallacy.

    But an association with a bunch of men and the RCC...:Biggrin

    Calvin preferred "Reformed" as well.

    You know most Calvinists only use the word "Calvinist" because we are forced to. I don't "follow Calvin" I follow the Scriptures. I don't call it Calvinism, I call it the Doctrines of Grace.

    I don't think that is the necessary logical conclusion of @JonC position. You can (and must) with his position say that Christ must not have died for all sin. But there is no reason to force them to say that he did not die for any sin.

    There are so many philosophical varients I do not know we can determine another's "logical conclusion" at all. Often things fall apart when we decontextualize other people's views and put then in our own theological context.

    Non-Calvinists do this all the time with the "robot" nonsense.
