    • This has led many in the Reformed world to declare themselves as “four-point Calvinists.”
    • Two things should be noted as a result of this. First, the belief of some who are Calvinistic that Christ died for all is not necessarily Amyraldian. Unless it is tied to a sophisticated reconstruction of the eternal covenants and their implications, it is perhaps better referred to with a more general term such as “hypothetical universalism.”
    • One last point: although the Reformed Orthodox disagreed with the Amyraldians on this point and even regarded it as a serious error, they still considered them to be brothers and sisters in the faith.
    • Thus, it seems some degree of limitation and exclusion is already implied in the term “Scripture.”
    • The fact of the matter is that when we look into the history of the canon we realize that there was never a time where the boundaries of the New Testament were closed in the way the exclusive definition would require.
