Definite Atonement: “There is no other position”


Definite Atonement is a difficult doctrine for many to swallow, but it’s a doctrine that logic demands.

image

If Jesus died for all the sins of all men, unbelief included, then all are saved, which the Bible denies. If He died for all the sins of all men, unbelief excluded, then He did not die for all the sins of anybody and all must be condemned. There is no other position, save that He died for the sin of His elect people only.

—James Montgomery Boyce, The Doctrines of Grace: Rediscovering the Evangelical Gospel (Crossway Books, 2002), 125. [quoted by Steve Lawson in Foundations of Grace (Reformation Trust, 2006), 252.]
