  1. Limited atonement

    Limited atonement is a doctrine accepted in some Christian theological traditions. It is particularly associated with the Reformed tradition and is one of the five points of Calvinism. The doctrine states that Jesus Christ's substitutionary atonement on the cross is specifically designed for the elect only, that He died only for them. This is in contrast to a belief that Christ died for all, but while this atonement is sufficient for the salvation of all, it is only efficient for the elect, those who receive Christ, these being predestined unto salvation. Thus its primary benefits are not given to all of humanity due to unbelief. However this is not a classical view.
