Hays conclude that the Sanders/Dunn school has effectively replaced Luther’s view as the predominant way to read Romans, and Leander E. The sinner commits actions which the saint may also indulge in; but one is saved the other is lost; and so the entire moral contents of Christianity are emptied out. But that is all that Arminianism (and the Bible) says, that through faith we receive a free and undeserved gift from the hand of God, and for that reason it is not salvation by works and it excludes boasting, just as Paul says in Rom. 4:4-5, “Now when a man works, his wages are not credited to him as a gift, but as an obligation.

This is a point wholly distinct from that of the right of private judgment in matters of religion, and of the freedom of public worship according to the dictates of one's conscience. § 1866.

As graduates of the Academy returned to their homelands, they not only took with them Calvinist doctrine and practice, they took also their educational experiences of the Academy itself. But the Reformation was making headway in France among the humanistic class to which he belonged, and so must have often been a topic of his conversation.

As John Calvin's own theology allowed for his actions against Servetus, many in our day are sexually immoral, liars, drunkards, filled with greed, etc., while they profess salvation.
