Savior of the World

Jesus died for the world. All Christians agree. But in what sense? Was it to make every individual equally savable? Did Jesus atone for the sins of Pharaoh? If everyone's sins are paid for, then why is anyone in hell? The intent and extent of the atonement is a controversial matter that calls for some careful thinking. Open your Bible and give it some thought. The attached paper is the reading assignment for our next meeting on Tuesday, November 22nd. If you want more reading on this topic, consult Boettner from last week's link.
