 Sufficient for All?
So we say, "His death was sufficient for all, but efficient only for the elect." This may be brief and easy to remember, but accuracy and integrity have been sacrificed for the sake of brevity.
By maintaining that Christ's death was sufficient for all, but efficient for the elect, there is a tendency to define the extent of the atonement in terms of personal application by the Holy Spirit.
If He has died for all sufficiently and the only particularity is in the personal application by the Spirit, then I cannot see how one distinguishes this from the universal atonement of the Arminians, who claim that Christ died for all men, with its benefits accruing only to those who believe.

Christ means to assure Paul that His grace was ample to pardon all the past, and to give strength for every trial and exigency in the present and in the future.

 Sufficient and Necessary Statistics, W van der Linden   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-31)
The property of sufficiency becomes interesting only if we are able to reduce the number of response vectors, combining them into a statistic without losing any information about the parameters.
In the above representation, the endpoint of the process, which is the simple sum of the item responses, is a necessary statistic since it is a function of the statistics earlier in the series, as well as of the statistics in any other series that can be defined.
Dynkin's terminology has not become popular; it has been beaten by the more familiar concept of a "minimal sufficient" statistic, which is precisely a statistic that is both sufficient and necessary.

 Principle of Sufficient Reason   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-31)
In other words, if x is a sufficient cause of y, then the situation: x obtains, y does not obtain becomes impossible (on the supposition).
But the agent (however located) cannot be a sufficient cause of x: otherwise it would be the case that whenever A exist, X occurs; so this option is consistent with neither PS1 nor PS2.
Condition (2) detaches the intelligibility of our actions from their having been caused—if an action is intelligible in the light of character and practical reason, then the issue of whether it is causally determined need not concern us.

 Minimal sufficient statistics in location-scale parameter models, Lutz Mattner
Let f be a probability density on the real line, let n be any positive integer, and assume the condition (R) that logf is locally integrable with respect to Lebesgue measure.
Then either logf is almost everywhere equal to a polynomial of degree less than n, or the order statistic of n independent and identically distributed observations from the location-scale parameter model generated by f is minimal sufficient.
Also, for f with (R) infinitely divisible but not normal, the order statistic is always minimal sufficient for the corresponding location-scale parameter model.

The Bible does not say "Do not use tradition" or "Scripture alone is sufficient." But the Bible does not say "The Trinity is three persons in one God," either, yet it is a fundamental doctrine of Christianity.
To Jesus, the Scriptures were enough and sufficient.

 Sufficient for All   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-31)
Considered together there may be some semblance of rationale for the 'sufficient for all'statement, but I hope to show that considered separately, the reasons are either invalid or the concern can be and should be answered another way.
Or, as John Owen has said, 'There are none called by the gospel even once to enquire after the purpose and intention of God concerning the particular object of the death of Christ, everyone being fully assured that His death shall be profitable to them that believe in him and obey him.'3.
— 'The effectual call is sufficient for all but efficient only for the elect.' Or, 'God's unconditional election is sufficient for all but efficient only for the elect.' Here I think we see a little of the meaningless nature of such a statement.
