And he is the atoning sacrifice for our sins, and not for ours only, but also for the whole world.(1 John 2:2, emphasis added)
Christ Jesus was obedient to His Father to the point of dying on a cross. Christ Jesus died on that cross for the clearing of my account. My sins are no longer recorded. Christ Jesus paid my account in full. Not only has he cleared my account He has cleared the accounts “for the sins of the whole world.” His death was not in vain. His death was for the sin of all. He is the propitiation for the sins of the whole world. To say otherwise as Mr. Salisbury suggests is to conclude the doctrines of eternal conscious torment and others like it “makes hell an eternal monument to the devil’s works of sin and death.”
Universal reconciliation embraces these verses as literally true. This is Impartial Grace.
