In 2005, a Calvinist scholar named Mark Hausam presented a paper at the Sunstone Symposium. The title of that paper is “It’s All in Arminius: Mormonism as a Form of Hyper-Arminianism.” His paper was very insightful, and walks through some of the commonalities and differences between Calvinism, Arminianism, and Mormonism. For Latter-day Saints who need a better grasp on what exactly Calvinism and Arminianism is, and how they relate (or don’t relate) to Mormonism, I highly recommend this paper.
I’ve attached his paper (linked below), and I’ve also linked to an audio recording of the presentation. At the end of the presentation in the audio recording you will be treated to a response by LDS philosopher Blake Ostler. Much thanks to Mark Hausam for sharing this paper with me, and for permitting me to share it with others.
P.S. I’m not a big Sunstone fan. But sometimes I find gems like this when searching through old symposiums. Nothing against Sunstone, it just isn’t my thing.
