Limited Atonement: What is Reformed Theology? with R.C. Sproul

Presented by Ligonier Ministries (YouTube) Description: The most common view of the atonement of Jesus is that Jesus died for everyone—that is, all people from all places in all times, every single human being that ever existed.

In which case it may be said: A  That if the last is true, then all men have some sins to answer for, and so none are saved. B  That if the second is true, then Christ suffered in their stead for all of the sins of all of the elect in the whole world – and this is the truth. C  But if the first is the case, then why are not all men free from the punishment
