Excerpt from A Refutation of Calvinism: In Which, the Doctrines of Original Sin, Grace, Regeneration, Justification, and Universal Redemption, Are Explained, and the Peculiar Tenets Maintained by Calvin Upon Those Points Are Proved to Be Contrary to Scripture
I feel great satisfaction in being able to lay before my Readers a massot such consistentnnd decisive evidence, extending from Ignatius and Clement Of Rome, who were contemporaries with the Apostles, to Theodoret, who lived in the fifth century, and comprehending almost every Eccle-o siastical Writer within that period. The little which remains of these writers from whose works. No extracts are given, contains nothing relative to the Calvinistic system. I desire it to be under stood that I have not selected what suits my own purpose, and suppressed what would have made. Against me. My inquiry has not furnished a singlepassage in any Of the works of the antient Fathers Of the Christian Church, in which any one Of the peculiar tenets of Calvin is maintained, with the exception of the later writings of Augustine, who did not live till the very, end of the fourth century. If Calvinists pretend thfi absolute decrees, the unconditional election and reprobation Of individuals, particular redemption; irr'esistible grace, and the entire destruction of free-will in manincon'sequence of the F all, were thedoctrines Of the Primitive Church of Christ.
