I list some verses which indicate the atonement was for all for your consideration.
What does “all” mean?
The Calvinist uses the strategy of redefining words in order to get their position into a “biblical” light, just like the Mormons, the Jehovah’s Witnesses, etc.
When we ask what does “all” mean? Simply put, it means all the individuals in a group. When we say “all of the apostles” we are specifying all of that group. When the qualifier of what group is left out, it means all people, of all times, and of all conditions (saved and unsaved).
Verses on universal atonement
Isa 53:5-6 all strayed from God, and God laid the iniquity of us all” on Christ.
Mat 11:28 The terminology of “all ye that abour and are hevy laden, and I will give you rest”
John 1:29 “the lamb of God which taketh away the sin of the world.” Does “world” mean the elect? If it does, then it goes against the common use and understanding of “world”. Obviously the intent of God was to make it clear that Jesus died for every single person in world.
John 7:37 ”In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink.”
John 3:14 “so must the Son of man be lifted up” 18 “He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.”
Rom 1:16 “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
Rom 5:6 “Christ died for the ungodly”
2Cor 5:19 “God was in Christ reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them”
Gal 3:22 “But the scripture hath concluded all under sin, that the promise by faith of Jesus Christ might be given to them that believe.”
1Tim 2:5 “For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus; 6 Who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time.”
1Tim 4:10 “For therefore we both labour and suffer reproach, because we trust in the living God, who is the Saviour of all men, specially of those that believe.”
Heb 2:9 “that he by the grace of God should taste death for every man”
2Pet 3:9 “The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.”
1John 2:2 “And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world.”
1Jn 4:14 “the Father sent the Son to be the Saviour of the world”
Sermon on the wrongness of Limited Atonement
Sermon by Pastor Marc Monte – (30 mins) mentions various Calvinistic authors and their errors. An excellent sermon on why the Calvinist Limited Atonement is not biblical. Mentions John Piper‘s errors, more than a 5 pointer, version of Jn 3:16 “God gave his only begotten son in order that everyone who believing should not perish” (people who have to retranslate the Bible to prove his position), infant baptism, amillennialism, replacement theology (the church is the Israel of the OT), preterism (revelation has already been fulfilled), that Satan is presently bound on the earth. John Calvin – infant baptism for salvation. “Water baptism washes away all our defilements“. referred to baptists as the “henchman of Satan”. Referring to baptists, “one should not be content with just killing these people, but burn them thoroughly”. Be careful what you call yourself. Calvin was a murderous individual.
