Theological Term of the Week: Arminianism

Theology-image

This week’s term: Arminianism – The system of doctrine which holds salvation is brought about by a cooperative effort between God and man. Again, Arminius was not the originator of this doctrine but simply became identified as the champion of it. Arminianism is a modification of Pelagianism, though most Arminians will deny that they are in agreement with Pelagianism. 

Last week’s term: Calvinism – The system of doctrine which holds salvation is strictly of grace and totally monergistic. This system is often wrongly attributed to John Calvin and thus called after his name, though no one supposes or claims that he was the originator of it.
