Chapter Summary

The debates between early seventeenth-century Arminians and their Contra-Remonstrant opponents are widely known to have focused on predestination. Willem J. Van Asselts interest in the doctrine of justification is evident from his study of another seventeenth-century debate concerning justification: the disagreement between Gisbertus Voetius and Johannes Cocceius. This chapter focuses on seventeenth-century debate on justification. Two sections are devoted to the early disagreements between Arminius and Gomarus, as well as between Bertius and Lubbertus. After some observations on the historical background of the Arminian view on justification, some concluding remarks will be made on the continuity and background of the disagreement, and on its significance for the contrast between Remonstrants and Contra-Remonstrants.

Keywords: Arminian controversy; faith; Gisbertus Voetius; Johannes Cocceius; Willem J. Van Asselt
