Isus i-a învățat pe oameni să-l cunoască pe Dumnezeu prin a le explica lor cuvintele sale și prin a exemplifica modelul de viață; Lipsa de echivoc a Sfântului Duh din Sfânta Treime este redusă la o „forță”: Sfântul Duh este simbolul înnoirii vieții și se dezvăluie în viata omului drept o forță, fiind dumnezeiescul din om.

It was submitted by the Arminians to the Church of Holland in 1610 for adoption but was rejected by the Synod of Dort in 1619 on the ground that it was unscriptural. Michael Servetus Humanist and Martyr, p. 36. (return) 14. Not all churches that are reformed in doctrine identify themselves as such. This mystery points to one of God’s purposes in predestination, to inspire wonder and reverence in believers (181). The faith which God foresaw and upon which He based His choice was not given to the sinner by God (it was not created by the regenerating power of the Holy Spirit) {{but resulted solely from man’s will.}} {{It was left entirely up to man as to who would believe and therefore as to who would be elected unto salvation.}} {{God chose those whom He knew would, of their own free will, choose Christ.

The early members of this movement did not accept the name Anabaptist, claiming that since infant baptism was unscriptural and null and void, the baptizing of believers was not a re-baptism but in fact their first real baptism. I do not deny that he may, in his theology, be a Calvinist. The Lord's Supper is the continuing sacrament of which Christ's people partake in remembrance of him and of his redemptive work for them.

It was the Academy and the Institutes that shaped Reformed churches much more than did the Consistory. The genuine Puritan even rejected all signs of religious ceremony at the grave and buried his nearest and dearest without song or ritual in order that no superstition, no trust in the effects of magical and sacramental forces on salvation, should creep in.

Regarding religious liberty, not "all Protestants," as you claim, but all Protestants in the United States "accept the fundamental American principle ... that no particular religion or church should be 'established' or given preferred privileges."
