The letter of Arminius was divided by Junius into twenty-seven propositions in answering it, and each of them is here presented, with the answer of Junius, and the reply of Arminius, corresponding to it. “God, who is good, does not hate that which is good. All things, at their creation, were good, therefore at their creation, God did not hate any one of all created things: He hates that which is alien from Himself, but not that which is His own: He is angry with our fall and sin, not with His own creation. “– Francis Junius, Answer of Junius to the Sixth Proposition. Jacobus Arminius (aka Jacob Arminius, James Arminius, and his Dutch name Jacob Harmenszoon), was a Dutch theologian, best known as the founder of the anti-Calvinistic school in Reformed Protestant theology, thereby lending his name to a movement which resisted some of the tenets of Calvinism-known popularly as Arminianism.

His nature, or what God is, or rather what qualities does he possess? (2.) Who God is, or to whom this nature must be attributed. These must be known.”– James Arminius, Disputation Fifteen: On the Nature of God. “Angels are substances merely spiritual, created after the image of God, not only that they might acknowledge, love and worship their Creator, and might live in a state of happiness with him, but that they might likewise perform certain duties concerning the rest of the creatures according to the command of God.”– James Arminius, Disputation Twenty-Five: On Angels in General and in Particular.

Let us inspect its substance and its matter. It is all concerning God and his Christ, and is occupied in declaring the nature of both of them…” — James Arminius, Oration III: “The Divinity of Scripture” “With regard to the certainty [or assurance] of salvation, my opinion is, that it is possible for him who believes in Jesus Christ to be certain and persuaded, and, if his heart condemn him not, he is now in reality assured, that he is a son of God, and stands in the grace of Jesus Christ.” — James Arminius, A Declaration Of The Sentiments Of Arminius: “The Assurance of...

PROSLOGIUM

Posted by on Oct 21, 2013 in Catalog, Christian Classics, Theology | 0 comments

BUY Perfect Bound, BW, 6 x 9, 376 pages See more books of same category: Christian Classics Author: Saint Anselm In this brief work the author aims at proving in a single argument…the existence of God. The author writes as one who contemplates God, and seeks to understand what it is he believes. He originally titled this work “Faith Seeking Understanding.” He finally named it Proslogium…simply, “A Discourse.” Often called the second Augustine, St. Anselmus starts out from the same principle as the first; he holds that faith precedes all reflection and all discussion concerning religious things. Unbelievers, he says, strive to understand because they do not believe; whereas Christians, on the contrary, strive to understand because they do believe.

Uniformity With God’s Will

BUY Perfect Bound, BW, 6×9, 48 Pages See more books of same category: Christian Living Author: St. Alphonsus de Liguori The subject of God’s will was for Alphonsus a theme of predilection, a theme dearest to his heart. Just as St. Ignatius stressed ‘the greater glory of God,’ St. Alphonsus in all his works, gave prominence to ‘the greater good pleasure of God.’ The death of a friend deeply affected the Saint and he expressed his sentiments in a poem on God’s will. The wide acclaim it received may have suggested to him the thought that a tract on the same subject would be helpful to the souls of others. His surmise proved correct, for the appearance of his subsequent pamphlet was greeted with instant favor. “Perfection is founded entirely on the love of God: ‘Charity is the bond of perfection;’ and perfect love of God means the complete union of our will with God’s.”—St....
