The church owes a debt to the Synod of Dort for the contribution it made in four areas: Bible translation, church order, liturgy, and Sabbath observation.
This article gives a snap shot overview of some human figures who played a role as defenders of either Arminianism or the Reformed faith at the Synod of Dort.
This article discusses the events that necessitated the Synod of Dort, which was mainly in response to the objections raised by Jacob Arminius against major points of the Protestant doctrines. The result was that the synod upheld the teachings of the Protestant confessions, including what later came to be known as the five points of Calvinism. These five points the author discusses in detail.
Amyraldianism (following the teaching of Amyraldus/Amyraut) is often portrayed as a balanced alternative to both Calvinism and Arminianism. This article reviews the publication Christ for the World: Affirming Amyraldianism. This book is an Amyraldian commentary on developments in Reformed theology after the Synod of Dort.
This article addresses some of the arminian doubts concerning the teaching of the perseverence of the saints. The author refers to the Canons of the Synod of Dort (1618-1619), focusing on the means of grace that God has provided so that believers might be ble to persevere. These means of grace include prayer, the Holy Spirit, the proclamation of Scripture, and the sacraments.
Together with other issues, the Synod of Dordrecht faced some concerns around the keeping of the Sabbath. The Synod of Dort had to decide what to do with the threat of not keeping the Lord's Day, and what to do with those who think that keeping the Sabbath is not required by God. The church today faces these same questions.
