    Paul, Do you believe in limited atonement like a Calvinist does. Thanks, Bill

      No, a proper understanding of justification makes limited atonement impossible.

        Not only that, but “atonement” is an old covenant idea and has no bearing whatsoever on the believer since Jesus ended the law with his death on the cross.

    “Not only that, but “atonement” is an old covenant idea and has no bearing whatsoever on the believer since Jesus ended the law with his death on the cross.”

    Thank you and Amen. Do you have any articles on this?

      Paul might have some article where he has addressed this directly, but in the meantime, here are a few passages that deal with the law being ended and no more need for an “atonement” or “covering”.

      “But the scripture hath concluded (συγχλειω “soong-klee-oh”; to enclose or shut up together) all under sin, that the promise by faith of Jesus Christ might be given to them that believe. But before faith came, we were kept (φρουρεω “froo-reh-oh”; to be a watcher in advance, to mount a guard, protected) under the law, shut up unto the faith which should afterwards be revealed. Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster (παιδαγωγος “paid-a-gog-os”; a servant who’s task is to safely escort children to school) to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith. But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster. For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.” ~ Galatians 3:22-26

      “And for this cause he is the mediator of the new testament, that by means of death, for the redemption of the transgressions that were under the first testament, they which are called might receive the promise of eternal inheritance. For where a testament is, there must also of necessity be the death of the testator. For a testament is of force after men are dead: otherwise it is of no strength at all while the testator liveth.” ~ Hebrews 9:15-17

      “For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins, But a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries.” ~ Hebrews 10:26-27
