- n. Plural form of fatalism.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
And this leads directly to the chief differential which Christianity presents in contrast with the fatalisms of false systems, viz., that while sin and death abound, as all must see, the Gospel alone reveals a superabounding grace.
The answer is NOT to sit back and twiddle one's thumbs, spouting philanthropic fatalisms and sneering at those who believe they can push for CHANGE by assembling in numbers.
