Erasmus was right!

According to Arminian theologian Roger Olson:

Thank you for providing this nice illustration of the kind of Calvinism I am especially opposed to. Erasmus was generally right vis-à-vis Luther in that debate. Luther just fussed and fumed and called Erasmus names and engaged in ad hominem argumentation. And he completely overlooked Erasmus' insistence of grace assisting free will in salvation. We agree about one thing: Hyper-Calvinism is true (logically consistent) Calvinism.


  1. Fascinating.

    This Roman Catholic scholar says Erasmus was wrong, and Luther was right:

  2. It's apparent that the kind of Calvinism that Olson is especially opposed to is, well, actual Biblical Calvinism (the doctrines of grace).

    Odd that.
