Wonderful find, A.J.
Even so, Father: for so it seemed good in thy sight.

Very good article. Solid on logic and Scripture.

Should be a wild ride, but I won't be able to participate until Monday at the earliest. Chaplain duty the next 24 hours, and all that "Sunday stuff", ya' know.

Good title. It fits perfectly with my latest stuff to show how the Arminians with their "Prevenient grace" nonsense completely render Christ inefficacious at the Cross in their attempts to mount up man as the efficacious cause of his own salvation.
What the Arminians don't realize is that by denying the saving grace they are essentially denying the Lord himself. For the Grace of God in Salvation has appeared. In other words Titus 2:11 is talking about the first coming of Christ. The appearance of the Saving Grace of God was the appearance of Christ Himself. To deny the efficatious saving grace is to deny Christ himself.
And the Arminian, who attempts to turn Titus 2:11 into "Prevenient Grace", is attempting to turn the first appearance of Christ into a sad inefficatious grace able to save no one.

Instead, we shall close our brief survey of Scripture with these words from Hebrews 10:10-14:
And by that will, we have been made holy through the sacrifice of the body of Jesus Christ once for all. Day after day every priest stands and performs his religious duties; again and again he offers the same sacrifice, which can never take away sins. But when this priest had offered for all time one sacrifice for sins, he sat down at the right hand of God. Since that time he waits for his enemies to be made his footstool, because by one sacrifice he has made perfect forever those who are being made holy.
Now the author has gone and done it. Yet one more fellow who sees the Eternal Security of the saints in Hebrews 10:14.

"Why would Christ die for the whole world if God did not intend to save everyone?"
There is at least one scriptural assumption in this line to which Arminians vehemently object. Can any of you calvinists guess what it is?

Bump for the Calvinist "narrow bridge that goes all the way across the stream."
I am forever drawn to the exquisite logic of TULIP.
For all of my life I thought I was a Presbyterian.
After reading your post, I must me a Calvinist.
I guess what I am trying to say is: YES!
Just from a quick scan I think this is one of the best limitd atonement articles I have ever seen because it is short and to the point in showing how clearly Biblical it is.
