Can we extricate ourselves from Molinism?

That's the great argument.  Both claim to be more in accord with traditional Catholic theology and the teachings of St. Thomas. 

But, in my opinion, only one justifiably makes that claim, and that is the Augustinian/Thomists.  In simplest terms, the argument is that the Molinists offend the classical picture of the Christian God and His total providence by attributing a vital part of the salvation process to men themselves, working quite separately from God and His grace, and they thus fall into a theology which is Pelagian in spirit.
