Seeking Clarification from Non-Calvinists

Two questions from anyone who would not consider yourself to be a 5-point Calvinist:

1. What would you call yourself?
2. Would you agree with this language?:

Jesus Christ died at Calvary's cross, taking all the penalty of all the sins of all the world—everyone that's ever been born or ever will be born. Jesus Christ bore all their sins in that transaction there between him and his heavenly Father, when he paid the debt for all of us, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish but have everlasting life.

Is that a quote, or just an expression you formulated?

I think you know me well enough to know the answer.

I've asked forms of this question over the years. Those who responded "yes" to the second question didn't want to answer my follow-up questions.

Ben,

Question 1: Just a believer

Question 2: I pretty much agree.

1. Christian. Calvinist is too loaded. Even Calvinists can't agree about all that in included in Calvinist to make the name more valuable than Christian. Basically, you will have to further clarify no matter what label is given. Christian is the simplest.

2. I do not agree with that statement.
