When God has made an unconditional declaration of His faithfulness, it is hardly becoming in one of His children to entertain chaffr uncertainty in those things which He has promised. If it be admitted that He died for all and the Scriptures know no limitation in the universal provision in that deaththen the value of that death has been secured and provided for all, and since this is an undertaking which began in the councils of God and was ordained to meet the righteous requirements of His own Being, these values have been secured on a plane which answers the highest demands of the Infinite.
