A. W. TOZER on the ATONEMENT of CHRIST!
“Redemption is an objective fact. It is a work potentially saving, wrought for man, but done independent of and exterior to the individual. Christ’s work on Calvary made atonement for every man, but it did not save any man.”
“Universal atonement makes salvation universally available, but it does not make it universally effective toward the individual.”
“If atonement was made for all men, why are not all saved? The answer is that before redemption becomes effective toward the individual man there is an act which that man must do. That act is not one of merit, but of condition.”
“This act of appropriating salvation is one which only man can do.”
