When one has a question about a doctrine, it is best to look at the plain, unambiguous Bible verses that directly speak on the topic, rather than trying to philosophize upon the meaning of a verse. However, a serious problem soon arises, within a generation and indeed with the next generation. How can these seemingly contradictory things be reconciled? So after the Council of Dordt, all orthodox Protestants can then also be called "Calvinists" if they didn't deny the Council's findings and follow Arminius.
