CALVINIST QUOTE OF THE DAY. Hello to all the budding Calvinists I've met at Texas A & M and here is a quote for you. "In short, limited atonement affirms that Jesus Christ in dying bore the sins of his people, enduring all the punishment that was due them by becoming the curse that the law demanded. It pleased the Lord to bruise him for this purpose, for in so doing he gained - by his meritorious death - forgiveness, righteousness, sanctification, and eternal glory for a large and definite number of people, all of whom he knew and to whom he was joined before the foundation of the world." Thomas J. Nettles Ph.D., professor, Southern Baptist Seminary.
