REJECTED: Arminianism REAFFIRMED: Calvinism
This was the system of thought contained in the “Remonstrance” (though the “five points” were not orginally arranged in this order). It was submitted to the Church of Holland in 1610 for adoption but was rejected by the Synod of Dort in 1619 on the ground that it was unscriptural. This system of theology was re-affirmed by the Synod of Dort in 1619 as the doctrine of salvation contained in the Holy Scriptures. The system was at that time formulated into five points (in answer to the five points submitted by the Arminians) and has ever since been known as the five points of Calvinism.
