in case you don’t know the terms:
5-point Calvinist (per wikipedia)
The five points of Calvinism, which can be remembered by the English mnemonic TULIP are:
*]Total depravity (or total inability): As a consequence of the Fall of man, every person born into the world is enslaved to the service of sin. According to the view, people are not by nature inclined to love God with their whole heart, mind, or strength, but rather all are inclined to serve their own interests over those of their neighbor and to reject the rule of God. Thus, all people by their own faculties are morally unable to choose to follow God and be saved because they are unwilling to do so out of the necessity of their own natures.
*]Unconditional election: God’s choice from eternity of those whom he will bring to himself is not based on foreseen virtue, merit, or faith in those people. Rather, it is unconditionally grounded in God’s mercy.
*]Limited atonement (or particular redemption or definite atonement): The death of Christ actually takes away the penalty of sins of those on whom God has chosen to have mercy. It is “limited” to taking away the sins of the elect, not of all humanity, and it is “definite” and “particular” because atonement is certain for those particular persons.
*]Irresistible grace (or efficacious grace): The saving grace of God is effectually applied to those whom he has determined to save (the elect) and, in God’s timing, overcomes their resistance to obeying the call of the gospel, bringing them to a saving faith in Christ.
*]Perseverance of the saints (or preservation of the saints): Any person who has once been truly saved from damnation must necessarily persevere and cannot later be condemned. The word saints is used in the sense in which it is used in the Bible to refer to all who are set apart by God, not in the technical sense of one who is exceptionally holy, canonized, or in heaven (see Saint).[/LIST]
Arminian (per wikipedia)
Arminianism holds to the following tenets:
*]Humans are naturally unable to make any effort towards salvation
*]Salvation is possible by grace alone
*]Works of human effort cannot cause or contribute to salvation
*]God’s election is conditional on faith in Jesus
*]Jesus’ atonement was potentially for all people
*]God allows his grace to be resisted by those unwilling to believe
*]Salvation can be lost, as continued salvation is conditional upon continued faith[/LIST]
I’m not as familiar with Thomism and Molinism so any Catholic who’d like to sum them up is certianly welcome.
