    I don't know New Testament Greek so I can't take direct issue with Gill, but a plain reading of the text in it's English translation certainly doesn't read to me as Gill interprets it. I don't accept his interpretation. Other learned people who know Greek don't interpret the text as he does, so I see no reason why I should, particularly when Gill is ideologically opposed to unlimited atonement. Everything he says in relation to atonement is coloured by his rejection of unlimited atonement and therefore I regard him as a false teacher.

    Ok, well the others are viewing it through their unlimited atonement glasses, so I reject them as false teachers. So where does that get us?

    You say you don't understand his Greek argument but it must be wrong because some people disagree with it, yet you offer no evidence from the others to refute Gill's clear argument with.

    Back to all the other evidence and the practical reality that people aren't punished for sins that are forgiven I guess.

    And well done for changing "I lay down my life for my sheep" to "I lay down my life for everybody". Shame it makes no sense and is twisting Christ's words.
