Can't argue with history......but you can rewrite it.

Thanks Pete. Good stuff.


Unlike today, it was common then to call sister churches to assist in deciding on a particular issue. Notice both the "particular atonement" advocates and the "general atonement" supporters had churches which supported their respective views."

This cracks me up. Can you imagine that happening today.

Another thing this shows is that people do divide over this issue and did so historically. That is ok. It is hard to be united when the views on God's character are so opposite.
