Quote:And I say you need to stop with these Jansenistic ideas that interior grace is assumed to be passively non-resisted.

I didnt say it assumed to be in all cases, only in the case of infants before the age of reason.

The semipelagian error quoted seems to be that efficacious grace is not infallible. Certainly not something I ever posited, nor does it really touch on this question.

Quote:<font size="2"><font size="3"><font size="2">How does water Baptism confer grace: ex opere operato.  How does Baptism of Blood confer grace to infants: virtual ex opere operato.  Baptism of Desire and Perfect Contrition, which is the interior reception of sanctifying grace in the soul, is only available to those who can use their free will - ex opere operantis. Unbaptized infants with no free will and<i> no known exterior act</i>?  Make believe. </font></font></font>

Well, not Revealed, certainly. But it is you who for some reason are assuming that the only channels of grace outside water baptism (and blood for infants) must work ex opere operantis. I see no reason why God couldnt have an invisible means work ex opere operato. You seem to have a logical circle whereby Desire is positively Revealed, and then from that extrapolate that all extraordinary means require a positive act of the will. But the fact is, desire is not positively Revealed, and no where is it laid down that a positive act is required by God for the invisible infusion of grace. Those are all conclusions based on some arbitrary assumption that God has revealed water-desire-and-blood and is likewise limited to that.
