Un/limited Atonement or Multiple Intentions View (Four Point Calvinist Position)

God’s intentions in the death of Christ are complex not simple, multiple not single:

1) Christ died for the purpose of securing the sure and certain salvation of his own, his elect.
2) Christ died for the purpose of paying the penalty for the sin of all people making it possible for all who believe to be saved.
3) Christ died for the purpose of securing the bone fide offer of salvation to all people everywhere.
4) Christ died for the purpose of providing an additional basis for condemnation for those who hear and reject the gospel that has been genuinely offered to them.
5) Christ died for the purpose of reconciling all things to the Father.

One thought on “Un/limited Atonement or Multiple Intentions View (Four Point Calvinist Position)

  1. This view has a curious way of dealing with payment. If nothing else, I would not want to explain the justice of God that Jesus paid for my friend’s sins and then my friend had to go to hell and pay for them too. I’d rather have the problem of not being able to reason the (non-contradictory) view that God completed everything necessary for my salvation at the cross with the view that repentance and faith are required from me. I don’t know how I was baptized with Christ before I existed either (Romans 6:2-4).
