It could not have been done had not God contrived a way consistent with the honor of his holiness, majesty, justice and truth. But since God in the gospel has revealed that nothing is too hard for him to do, nothing beyond the reach of his power, and wisdom, and sufficiency; and since Christ has wrought out he work of redemption, and fulfilled d the law by obeying, there is none of mankind whom he may not save without any prejudice to any of his attributes”

 – Jonathan Edwards God’s Sovereignty in the Salvation of Men
