The Calvinist argument for limited atonement is:
“The atonement absolutely saves those for whom it was made. Since not everyone is saved, Jesus didn’t die for everyone, or else everyone would be saved.”
However, Hebrews 10:26-31 says that the atonement does not automatically or unconditionally save. A person must repent of their sins and stay away from their sins or else they are trampling the blood of Christ under their foot – bringing upon themselves worse damnation than had they merely sinned against the law.
The necessity for a “limited atonement” is unfounded. Their argument is unsound and unbiblical. The atonement doesn’t automatically or unconditionally save those for whom it was made. The atonement offers forgiveness or pardon to everyone upon condition that they repent and believe.
