Decision theology is the belief by some fundamentalist and evangelical sects of Christianity that individuals must make a conscious decision to "accept" and follow Christ (be "born again"). Some Christian denominations object to the "decision theology" theory as contradicting the monergism of orthodox historic Protestantism. Many fundamentalists and evangelicals expect individuals to make a dramatic decision to commit themselves to Jesus Christ. Lutherans and Reformed Christians reject the "decision theology" of some modern evangelicals, believing that faith receives the gift of salvation rather than causes salvation.
