The Gospel of Limited Atonement

I have been listening to a number of messages on YouTube about limited atonement. I only use that term because it is so common in the parlance of our time. I perfer the term “effectual redemption” to refer to Jesus’ redeeming work. I have become more convinced than ever before that differing views on this subject represent two different gospels. One is a false gospel and the other is the true gospel. The controversy is not unimportant and a matter for discussion among “ivory tower theologians.” It is a controversy that concerns the souls of men and women.

I would like to recommend for your consideration one of the best messages I have ever heard on this subject. It is a message by Dr. Sinclair B. Ferguson. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hJSjjlSWBoU

Among other things, he shows that the issue is not over the number of those for whom Jesus died, but over the effectiveness of his redeeming work.

Faith does not complete the work of redemption. Jesus “sealed my pardon with his blood, Halelujah, what a Savior!”
