Unlimited Limited Atonment

To start things off here is a quote from Driscoll in Death by Love (p. 172). This comes from a letter addressed to his youngest son, Gideon.

By dying for everyone, Jesus purchased everyone as his possesion, and he then applies his forgiveness to the elect, those in Christ, by grace, and he applies his wrath to the non-elect, those who reject Christ. Objectively, Jesus’ death was sufficient to save anyone and, subjectively, efficient only to save those who repent of their sin and trust in him. This position is called unlimited limited atonement, or modified calvinism. Or, as your daddy calls it, biblical.
