New doctrine

“This doctrine [predestination] was never admitted, decreed, or approved in any Council, either general or particular, for the first six hundred years after Christ.” [Arminius, “Declarations of Sentiments”] He believed the hermeneutics of the early church fathers did not support this claim [of monergism]. The early fathers did not embrace strict monergism as shown by the fact that they allowed for man’s responsibility.— Prevenient Grace: God’s Provision for Fallen Humanity, page 110
