      Efficacious Atonement
      By Joseph Yosuk Lee

      The purpose of writing this essay is to defend the
      Christian Reformed Faith. I do not believe the
      Arminian view of Christ dying for every single
      individual in the world is correct. Atonement is
      what Christ accomplished on the cross by shedding
      His blood. Efficacious means completely effective.
      The non-elect are non-Christians who will never be
      saved. The elect includes Christians who are saved
      and non-Christians who will be saved in the future.

      We know that we have nothing to boast to God. Should
      we boast our free will to choose God? Absolutely not!
      We have nothing to boast including our free will. (1
      Corinthians 1:27-31) However, did Christ forgive and
      die for all of our sins? The answer is, "Yes." 1
      John 1:7 says, "...the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses
      us from ALL sin." Thus, Christ died for all of our sins
      including our unbelief and our doubts about Christ.
      Did Christ forgive and die for the unbelief of the
      non-elect? The answer is, "no" or else the non-elect
      will become Christians. Matthew 22:14 says:

      "For many are called, but few are chosen."

      If Christ died for the non-elect's unbelief, then everyone
      in the world will go to heaven. Matthew 22:14 clearly
      shows only the few enter heaven. It is also obvious
      that Christ did not die for everyone when Romans 5:9
      says, "...we are now justified (saved) by his blood..."
      If the non-elect received Christ's atonement, then
      they are justified or saved by His blood.
