    It removes concern that we should turn from sin toward God. It extinguishes the zeal for prayer and hinders zeal for good works. Predestination as understood by Calvin’s followers, says Arminius, produces an inward despair of being able to affirm what duty requires. Calvin’s view of predestination leads to carelessness as well. God's Purpose According To Election: Paul's Argument in Romans 9. so that by doing good works he will as well attain eternal life This position is the same as that of Pelagius, the great opponent of predestination.7 And yet, the same author just quoted reexamined Romans a few years later at the request of a friend and totally reversed.

John Meyendorff in his work on Byzantine Theology). Even our good works are prepared beforehand by God. However, this is not to be set in opposition to free will.   By way of example, the doctrine of predestination found in Book III of Calvin’s Institutes arguably defines predestination as a double decree, consisting in election and reprobation, the precise object of which is difficult to determine: Calvin sometimes speaks as if the object of predestination is fallen humanity in need of redemption.

Thomas, I, Q. xxiii, a. Paul had already made very clear in Romans that good works are necessary for eternal life, at least in one sense: For [God] will render to every man according to his works: to those who by patience in well-doing seek for glory and honor and immortality, he will give eternal life.

Whence, the predestined must strive after good works and prayer; because through these means predestination is most certainly fulfilled.

For this reason it is said: "Labor more that by good works you may make sure your calling and election" (2 Peter ). Reply to Objection 1. So with regard to point #2 (i.e. whether reprobation is just or good), St.

ABSTRACT: Luther’s and Calvin’s Catholic contemporaries argued against Reformed doctrine because it disagreed with the teaching of Rome. The Reformers argued, first, that their doctrines agreed with Scripture, but they also appealed to church history. Predestination and the other doctrines of grace were, according to them, not novel teachings, but teachings held as far back as the church.

According to McGrath, “The context relates to the efficacy of the gospel proclamation The primary function of the doctrine of predestination is to explain why some individuals respond to the gospel, and others do not.” This represents a different emphasis than Aquinas: “Thomas’s view of providence and predestination is an exposition.
