Christ bore the wrath of God against the sins of the whole world—the whole human race. Our sin is indivisible. It is impossible to separate the sins of the elect and the sins of the reprobate. Since the human race is one, every member is exposed to the wrath of God. Therefore, for Christ to rescue His elect, He had to suffer the wrath of God against the sin of the whole world. As far as the sufficiency of the work of Christ is concerned, it would not have made any difference whether all would have been saved or few. Even if Christ had been sent to rescue only one sinner, He still would have had to suffer the agonies of Gethsemane and Calvary. Pronk, Cornelis. Expository Sermons on the Canons of Dort .
