Well, uh, yeah.  Duh.  That's synergy.  God has ordained that our salvattion come from our free choice.  If that takes away from God's total providence, then God willed it that way.  It's the Protestants that don't believe in synergy.

When you put it like that, I feel like I can confidently reject Augustine and Aquinas as heretics, at least on this topic.
