In this minisode we will begin exploring what Arminius taught on the Doctrine of the Atonement. It is clear that Arminius did not hold to the Governmental Theory of the Atonement but to (at least) the Satisfaction Theory instead. This episode will show this from the works of Jacob Arminius "Oration IV." We will also receive theological guidance from Dr. Roger Olson and his excellent book, "Arminian Theology Myths and Realities." Be on the look out for our next full episode that will be entirely devoted to the Wesleyan-Arminian view of the Atonement. Please subscribe!

Here is a link to "Arminian Theology Myths and Realities" by Roger E. Olson. You should buy it!

This is our second full episode of Remonstrance podcast! On this episode we will be taking an in depth look at the theology of Jacob Arminius and John Wesley in regards to Divine Providence. We will start off by defining Providence and Meticulous Providence. Then we will be looking at what Arminius had to say, specifically in regards to preservation, divine governance, divine concurrence, and permission. We also look at the "greater good" theodicy in the thought of Jacob Arminius and how God directs evil and sinful actions toward a greater good. We then look at what John Wesley had to say and how he affirmed both meticulous providence and "greater good" theodicy as well. 

In this episode we made many references to "Jacob Arminius: Theologian of Grace" by Keith Stanglin and Thomas McCall. You can buy the book here:
