Universality of Grace
Universality of Grace a doctrine introduced into the French Reformed theology, under the influence of John Cameron, in the early part of the 17th century, and advocated by Amyraldus (Amyraut), Placaeus, and Pajon. Cameron himself taught the imputation of Christ's passive obedience alone, and advocated the hypothetic universalism of divine grace, which was more fully developed by Amyraut. "The peculiarity of Amyraldism," says Schweizer, "is in the combination of real particularism with a merely ideal universalism." See Hagenbach, Hist. of Doct. 2, 180, 275. SEE ATONEMENT.
