The Reformation Simplified SERIES: Calvin vs. Luther on Soteriology

Calvinism gets its TULIP acronym in a summary of soteriological doctrinal points... This TULIP acronym is derived from the so-called “5-points of Calvinism” (Total Depravity, Unconditional Election, Limited Atonement, Irresistible Grace, and the Perseverance of the Saints).

Of particular interest in viewing the differences between Calvinism and Lutheranism is the 3rd point, limited atonement. This Calvinist doctrine teaches that Jesus’s death atoned for the sins of a limited, or particular, group of people.
Limited atonement is rejected in the Lutheran framework which instead teaches that Jesus’ death atoned for the sins of each and every person in the world without exception.
A Place For Thoughts


And they that understand among the people shall instruct many:
                                  yet they shall fall by the sword, and by flame,
                                                    by captivity, and by spoil, many days.
Daniel 11:33
