The Doctrine of Arminian is: “The cause of predestination to grace and glory was the foresight of good works, and of perseverance therein, resulting from a right use of our free-will: and that there is no such thing as predestination unto death; but only a fore-knowledge of what sins men would commit.” That these are the doctrines of the Arminians now, as they were of Pelagius then, needs no proof.
[But the truth is ...]
The moving or efficient cause of predestination unto life is not the foresight of faith, or of perseverance, or of good works, or of any thing that is in the persons predestinated: but only the good will and pleasure of God.
Augustus Toplady, A Letter to Dr. Norwell, February 13, 1769
