Dutch Revolt and Arminianism

One of the most significant events post-Reformation for the history of theology was the teaching of Jacob Arminius. Arminius considered himself to be a true Calvinist, in the sense of being faithful to the teachings of John Calvin.

Predestination was more about God having foreknowledge of who would believe than God determining who would believe.
