Even if I fervently disagreed with the doctrine of Particular Redemption (which I don't and still don't) I would still positively cringe at the above argument. With the stroke of a pen, the writer has just obligated God to prove atonement for every sinner, branding Him a monster had He refused to do so. If this argument is correct, then grace is no more grace. Not enough if God should freely provide atonement for one guilty undeserving sinner or a great multitude that no man can number. No! In order not to be a monster, God MUST, MUST, MUST provide atonement for every last underserving sinner ever born.
Personally, I wouldn't take on myself to challenge the Sovereign God of Heaven and earth with "What doest thou?" never mind (as in the above tweet) try and tell Him what He must or must not do.
I accept that not every one who believes in Universal Redemption adopts the above argument. I repeat it here to show, however, that those of us who believe in Particular Redemption are further away from the mindset that produces it than those who don't.
Many divines say that Christ did something when he died that enabled God to be just, and yet the Justifier of the ungodly. What that something is they do not tell us. They believe in an atonement made for everybody; but then, their atonement is just this. They believe that Judas was atoned for just as much as Peter; they believe that the damned in hell were as much an object of Jesus Christ’s satisfaction as the saved in heaven; and though they do not say it in proper words, yet they must mean it, for it is a fair inference, that in the case of multitudes, Christ died in vain, for he died for them all, they say; and yet so ineffectual was his dying for them, that though he died for them they are damned afterwards. Now, such an atonement I despise — I reject it. (CH Spurgeon)
