noun
  1. (Christianity) (theology) An Arminian doctrine distinctive to Methodism and the broader Wesleyan movement. It holds that man is so fallen that he is utterly incapable of perceiving the need for salvation, but God, in His infinite wisdom, has preveniently extended to certain of humankind sufficient grace that we can, through a form of free-will, willingly accept salvation. This theological stance takes respectful note of the Calvinist insistance on the sovereignty of God and that all things were known to Him from before the beginning, but departs from it by insisting that free will is genuine.
