Everyone limits the atonement of Jesus – you either limit its extent and intent, or its nature and power.

Last Sunday I continued my sermon series on the five points of Calvinism, preaching on “Limited Atonement.” Many today prefer the language of Particular Redemption or Definite Atonement. These are helpful names, but I like keeping the L. Not only do TUPIP or TUDIP not work as acronyms, but the word “limited” forcefully reminds us that everyone limits the atonement – either in its extent/intent, or its nature/power. Read my sermon for more on this point.
