Boyce Calvinism

* Boyce's Systematic Theology
* BH Carroll's Calvinism




“This theory, like all others of a general atonement, lies under the difficulty that it extends reconciliation, or a medium of reconciliation, to persons, who by death have been confirmed in destruction, or it shuts off from its benefits all who have died before Christ. The theory of limited atonement recognizes all who are included in it as saved by virtue of it. The virtue secured, therefore, is applied to all to whom it belongs. The fact that the Lamb was slain before the foundation of the world, or, in other words, the certainty of Christ's death, makes salvation beforehand possible, and permits God to bestow it. The death of Christ only fulfils what has thus been relied on. But in the case of a general atonement made for the whole race, we have Christ dying, not simply for those who shall not be saved, but for those who are already damned. (8.) This theory is incompatible with those expressions of Scripture which speak of Christ's death as though it were confined to the elect.“
(Systematic Theology Chapter  29)
 BH Carroll quote: "Now here is the text-book on systematic theology, which every student of that seminary [ Southern Baptist Theological Seminary]  is required to almost memorize. It was prepared by our lamented brother, Dr. James P. Boyce, to whom a superior was not left on earth when he was called up higher." (Sermon on Assurance)
