Only Definite Atonement Eliminates Boundaries

Boundaries of race, culture, origin, upbringing, and background are obliterated by the efficacy of Christ’s atonement. Christ has died for many of all nations and languages, and this unites them in Him. The alternative view of universal hypothetical atonement which is conditioned upon whether or not the hearer receives Him or not leaves room to think that some groupings of people may be more receptive because of some better qualities, morals, or readiness to accept the truth. So the universal atonement doctrine cannot provide any basis for undoing racism, nativism, or phariseeism.

And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me.  John 12:32
