AN EASTERN ORTHODOX VIEW OF PREDESTINATION

AN EASTERN ORTHODOX VIEW OF PREDESTINATION


by 

The Synod of Jerusalem (different than the biblical ”Council of Jerusalem”) was an Eastern Orthodox council which was convened in 1672 to deal with the influences of Reformed theology (particularly that of Calvin) on the Orthodox Church. While this council is not without its modern Orthodox retractors, it was at the time thought to be a definitive and dogmatic pronouncement of the Orthodox faith. It was the Eastern Orthodox “Council of Trent.” From this Synod came the Confession of Dositheus.

Let me give you a brief overview of the Orthodox faith concerning Predestination according to this council.
