Once more let it be observed , we do not affirm that the death of Christ at the
moment of his dissolution , was actually applied to all and every individual of
mankind , nor that after his oblation it was infallibly to be applied , but that ,
according to ...
... by that covenant ; so God , who in the second covenant ordained salvation as
procurable for all under the condition of faith , yet hath not predestinated to give
to all men individually this faith , by which they might infallibly obtain salvation .
design of application extended to all men individually according to the infallible
order of predestination ; but there is in God a certain obligation to remission , and
a will of remitting sins and conferring life extended to all men individually ...
He willed that it should so pertain to the elect alone , that by the merit of it all
things which relate to the obtaining of salvation , should be infallibly given to
them . And in this sense we confess that the oblation of Christ is of the same
extent as the ...
... follow hence that all men individually are promiscuously elected ; because God
hath not determined to give to all men individually that grace whereby they may
believe , and , by believing , may infallibly derive life from this death of Christ .
