In this series of episodes we will be discussing the Synod of Dort again along with the events that followed it. To do this we will continue reading through portions of an article by Kevin D. Young titled, "The Four Hundred Year Flower: Arminius, Dort, and the Battle for Grace" published on Desiring God. In this episode we will be discussing how the politics of the Netherlands surrounding the Synod of Dort dictated to how it was decided. We will also discuss how it was by no means a fair debate. We will also be discussing how the Synod of Dort defined what it meant to be "Reformed" in a way it was not clearly defined before. We will also discuss how the Arminian understanding of grace is different from the Calvinist understanding of grace. Finally, we will talk about what happened to the Remonstrant leaders after their "defeat" at the Synod of Dort.

In this series of episodes we will be discussing the Synod of Dort again along with the events that led up to it. To do this we will be reading through portions of an article by Kevin D. Young titled, "The Four Hundred Year Flower: Arminius, Dort, and the Battle for Grace" published on Desiring God. We will be discussing what DeYoung got right in the article and what he got wrong. Like many others he presents some popular Arminian myths as facts. Is it true that Arminius was a devoted Calvinist after graduating from Geneva? Is it true that Arminius became a humanist (?) after preparing for a debate with a Dutch Humanist? What did it really mean to be Reformed at the time of Arminius? Listen to join us in this conversation.
