Why do some people receive the gift of faith and not others?

Yes.

The little of the thread that I read does seem to be of timelessly topical interest.

Martinus seems to have his finger on the pulse. I've had protracted arguments with INPEFESS and his friends on this topic on other forums.

The Thomistic notions of "efficacious" and "sufficient" grace seem to me to be a lot of ducking and weaving trying to avoid conflict with the Augustinian, almost Jansenistic, version that was popular at the time.

I think it worthwhile to suggest that theologians and their theological opinions do not necessarily represent the "sensus fidelium" or an infallible definition of some point of doctrine.
