1 John 2

Did Jesus Die for you?  In Calvinist theology, there is a doctrine called “limited atonement.” According to this theological position, Jesus only died for the elect, or those who were chosen by God. But 1 John 2:2 says: “He is the payment for our sins, and not for ours only but also for the whole world”. This verse makes it clear that His atonement was unlimited. Jesus didn’t just die for our sins; He died “for the whole world.”      How glorious it is that we can declare to any person in this world, “Jesus died for you”!                               –  Pastor Chuck Smith 1927-2013
