HISTORY of Christian Theology

(A.D. 1618–1619) Reformed theologians reject Arminianism and formulate the five points of Calvinism at the Synod of Dordt in Holland. A Protestant theology that places a greater role on free will in individual salvation than Luthernism and Calvinism. Its name is derived from its advocate, Jacobus Arminius, who taught that God desired to save all mankind, as opposed to Calvin’s teaching of election and limited atonement, and that a person’s choice to accept God’s grace ultimately determines whether or not one is saved. Arminianism was condemned at the Synod of Dordt in 1619, but continued to play a major role in Protestant theology particularly among Anglicans, Baptist and was embraced by John Wesley and the Methodist tradition he founded. This in turn has led to its strong influence on American evangelicalism.
