    "Mr. Gadsby always considered, and often stated publicly, that Andrew Fuller was the greatest enemy the church of God ever had, as his sentiments were so much cloaked with the sheep’s clothing...

    LATER IN THE SAME ARTICLE, GADSBY EXPLAINS (the Fullerite position):

    Andrew Fuller and those allied with him did not believe the death of Christ was sufficient to save all He died for; "He died for the human race; while He made an atonement for the elect only, the atonement was sufficient to save the non-elect if they would only believe. The atonement was sufficient to save and would save the elect," says Mr. Fuller, "regardless of whether they ever heard the gospel or believed in Jesus or the atonement; but the non-elect must believe in the atonement in order for it to be able to save them." If one of the non-elect has believed and was saved by the atonement, there is one person in heaven that God did not choose to be there. This was the Fullerite position, briefly stated.

    Both men erred, in that their conclusions were reached by philosophical contrivance. But by neglecting the most foundational elements for biblical understanding on this issue (man's ontological makeup and the nature of what Christ's atonement accomplished), it is impossible to reconcile the scriptures regarding the breadth of the atonement.

    So men will continue to argue whether a bicycle has three wheels or four
