Romans 5:10 offers assurance that the Lord Jesus Christ has secured the Christian’s eternal salvation through His life and death. At airō, Justin Edwards demonstrates how this verse supports the reformed doctrine of definite atonement and exposes the flaws found in the arguments for unlimited atonement. He writes:
If Christ died for every individual, all individuals would be reconciled to God, because the text says that we were reconciled through the death of Christ. But, no human has ever existed who was reconciled by the death of Christ, but will not be given eternal life. To be even more clear, there are no reconciled sinners in hell.
