Hello, This would be my first post here. I have been reading the different topics for awhile and am very glad to see some competent answers. I do have a couple questions though, I know that the "L" in TULIP means limited atonement. I understand the other parts of TULIP, but I can not quite find sufficient evidence for the limited atonement part. I do not mean to cast doubt on it, for so far as I read up on the reformed theology doctrines I have been very happy to see them abundantly in scripture. I ask only to learn. I wish to understand this. I know in the Greek, all and whole, do not normally mean that so how should I take a verse like - 1st John 2:2 "And He is the propitiation concerning our sins, and not concerning ours only, but also concerning the sins of all the world. " I am sorry for bringing up a question that may be basic and seem elementary, but I myself do not understand this. I thank you in advance.
