Gottschalk on Limited Atonement

“He who knows God’s work in Jesus Christ will undoubtedly admit without hesitation and joyfully state that the loving redeemer redeemed absolutely all Whom He redeemed from eternal death at such a price and that He gave them all eternal life. Let them deny this, if they want, who love the dregs more than the oil, the grape skins or seeds more than wine, chaff and weeds more than wheat, kids and goats more than sheep and lambs, because they perhaps come from them. But those who love God, who know that He is omnipotent and believe, know, and say that He has done whatever He willed in heaven and on earth, and in the sea and in all the deeps (Ps. 134:6), most firmly hold, state, and assert that no one among those who have been redeemed by the blood of Christ perishes eternally." 

Gottschalk of Orbais, ca. 850 A.D.

  1. This would support the thesis that all five points of Calvinism provide security and comfort to the believer because those who have been purchased by the blood of Christ will most certainly be kept until the end. Eternal security is part of the total package. 2 Corinthians 1:20.
