Extent of the Atonement


Dr. Bruce Ware postulates a position on the extent of the atonement which he calls Un/limited Atonement or Multiple Intentions View . Dr. Ware represents this as the Four Point Calvinist Position.

God’s intentions in the death of Christ are complex not simple, multiple not single:

  • Christ died for the purpose of securing the sure and certain salvation of his own, his elect.
  • Christ died for the purpose of paying the penalty for the sin of all people making it possible for all who believe to be saved.
  • Christ died for the purpose of securing the bone fide offer of salvation to all people everywhere.
  • Christ died for the purpose of providing an additional basis for condemnation for those who hear and reject the gospel that has been genuinely offered to them.
  • Christ died for the purpose of reconciling all things to the Father.
