Charles Hodge (1797–1878) on John 3:16 and the Design of God to Render the Salvation of All Men Possible

2. It is here [in John 3:16], as well as elsewhere taught, that it was the design of God to render the salvation of all men possible, by the gift of his Son. There was nothing in the nature, or the value, or the design of his work to render it available for any one class of men only. Whosoever believeth, etc. This is not inconsistent with other representations that it entered into God's design to render the salvation of his people certain by the death of his Son.
Charles Hodge, Princeton Sermons (London: Thomas Nelson and Sons, 1879), 17.
