I heard this is from "Universal Salvation?: The Current Debate":

"If the penalty for human sin has already been paid by Christ, how can justice be an impediment to his mercy and His love? Did Christ's atonement only atone for the sins of some human beings, or some but not all sins? - Eric Reitan

    Eph 1:9-10  He made known to us the mystery of His will, according to His kind intention which He purposed in Him  (10)  with a view to an administration suitable to the fullness of the times, that is, the summing up of all things in Christ, things in the heavens and things on the earth.

The gospel is not just about forgiveness, it is also about transformation and fulfillment. The payment of our penalty makes it all possible. Yet the gospel is preached and we are accountable to it. I received the result of the propitiation thru believing and bowing the knee and confessing the Lordship of Jesus. So it will it be for all, some sooner, some later. Atonement paid for all sins. Repentance receives atonement. Faith manifests atonement. Obedience celebrates atonement. Justice bears witness to atonement. Love fuels all.
The Logos is complete, but it is not completely understood. hellisamyth.webs.com
