Limited Atonement versus II Peter 2:1ff

II Peter 2:1ff reads …1But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in d‑a‑m‑n‑a‑b‑l‑e heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.4,9if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to h‑e‑l‑l, and delivered them into chains of darkness, … reserved unto judgment; …The Lord knoweth how to … reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished.These “false teachers” were "bought" by the Lord (Jesus, 1:16), that is, He died for them:· I Corinthians 6:20 and 7:23 bought with a price· Revelation 5:9 redeemed us to God by thy blood (also Revelation 14:3 and 4)· Matthew 20:28 to give his life a ransom for many· Matthew 26:28 this is my blood … which is shed for many for the remission of sinsThese “false teachers” became lost:· bring in condemnable heresies, bring upon themselves swift destruction· denying the Lord· pernicious ways, covetousness, feigned words, make merchandise of you· their condemnation (stronger word in KJV) slumbereth not· reserved unto the day of judgment to be punished· servants of corruptionTherefore Jesus' atonement is not limited to the elect/saved !
