""Was Arminius a Molinist?" by Eef Dekker's

Neal, over at the Molinist blog, told me about an article by a man named "Eef Dekker". He wrote something that suggested that Arminius could of been either a Molinist or he at least knew of Molinism.

The article that he has was from the JSTOR database. I don't have access to JSTOR so I'm going to have to go to a Library that has access to it.

If I ever get my hands on this article then I'll try to post it online.

This is Neal's blog

Nevermind. I no longer have to go to the Library. I found the article right here

on divine nature with some central clauses from Molina's work. Arminius warmly
welcomed the theory of middle Knowledge, for it provided a method for
reconciling God's foreknowledge, grace and predestination with human free will.
