Jesus escorts all who are bound for heaven, by Jay Quine

c. 1632 Jesus' Death is Universal!!1 John 2:2 Unlimited Atonement of Jesus Death and Resurection
DidJesus die only for the sins of those who would be saved, or did He also pay forthe sins of those forever lost? Theologians have wrestled for centuries over limited vs. unlimitedatonement. Logic tells us that work ofChrist would never be wasted. He wouldnot die for the sins of the lost where it would have no effect. But we understand spiritual truth notprimarily through a grid of logic, but one first by faith. We are first biblicists, not logicians. The Bible tells us that Christ died “not forour sins only, but also for those of the whole world.” I’m Dr. Jay Quine. This is an amazing truth: Christ’s completepayment for sin is sufficient for all, but efficient only for those whobelieve. Jesus died for everyone youmeet. So tell them: every person in the restaurant, on the football field, and in the stands. Repent, for the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand. Jesus is coming back!
