What Is The Purpose Of The Preaching To The Non-Elect?
by Arthur Pink
“It is to be noted that God has other purposes in the preaching of the Gospel than the salvation of His own elect. The world exists for the elect’s sake yet others have the benefit of it. So the Word is preached for the elect’s sake yet others have the benefit of an external call. The sun shines though blind men see it not. The rain falls… Continue reading
The Extent of the Atonement: Who Did Christ Die For?
by Matt Perman
Who did Christ die for? Did He die for every single human being to ever live, or did He only die for those that the Father had chosen to save?

Christ Died For The Ungodly
by Horatius Bonar
The divine testimony concerning man is, that he is a sinner. God bears witness against him, not for him; and testifies that "there is none righteous, no, not one"; that there is "none that doeth good"; none "that understandeth"; none that even seeks after God, and, still more, none that loves Him (Psa. 14:1-3; Rom. 3:10-12).
