SERMON TOPIC: Calvinism and Arminianism - Part 1
Speaker: Gavin Paynter
Date: 11 October 2015
Topic Groups: CALVINISM, ARMINIANISM, HERESY
Calvinism and Arminianism are two systems of theology which attempt to explain the relationship between God’s sovereignty and man’s responsibility with regards to salvation.
- The Calvinist viewpoint highlights man’s depravity, the salvation by grace alone of God’s elect, but emphasizes God’s sovereignty.
- The Arminian viewpoint accepts man’s depravity, salvation by grace alone of all who believe, but emphasizes man’s responsibility.
An introduction, with a focus on Calvin's dealings with Michael Servetus as contrasted with the NT model of handling heretics.
