Religion:Free offer of the gospel

From HandWiki

The free offer of the Gospel, sometimes called the well-meant offer of the gospel, in Christian theology, is the offer of salvation in Jesus Christ to all people. It is generally accepted by Calvinists, but rejected by a few small Reformed denominations, such as the Evangelical Presbyterian Church in Australia,[1] the Protestant Reformed Churches in America, the Reformed Congregations in the Netherlands (Dutch: Gereformeerde Gemeenten in Nederland, abbreviated GGiN)[2][circular reference][3][circular reference] and also by some English Strict Baptists of longer standing, such as John Gill and, later, the Gospel Standard Strict Baptists. The free offer of the Gospel was a point that the Marrow Brethren sought to defend, seeing the high Calvinists who denied the doctrine as misguided.[4]
