Moreover, in the context of this discussion, reprobates do not receive blessings or grace, just goodness.

Do you agree that reprobates receive common grace or are you using the term goodness instead of common grace (I prefer Murray on Common Grace, but...)? In addition, the reprobates are called to/for a purpose, and I do not think this should be lost in our evaluation of the matter at hand.

I don't particularly care for the term "common grace" in the context of reprobation, if for no other reason I don't think that God's favor rests upon reprobates. Yes indeedy!, God has a purpose for the reprobate, which is to his glory and the good of the elect.
