Can we extricate ourselves from Molinism?
(07-29-2011, 12:09 AM)Vetus Ordo Wrote: Augustine was not simply a Father amongst many but the "Doctor of Grace." His theology concerning predestination and grace has been accepted by the Church as her own.

This has nothing to do with the numbers of fathers supposedly for or against it. Scripture itself testifies clearly in favour of Augustinianism/Thomism concerning this issue.

To the first point, that's exactly where my question leads.  If that is the case, how then can the Church be said to have maintained the Apostolic Faith, if it has accepted as its own a doctrine that many of the Fathers did not hold?

To the second point, Scripture also testifies against it.  Did you get a chance to read the article.  I thought the bishop that wrote it did a good job of explaining why the Scripture quoted to defend Augustinian predestination did not actually mean that.  What did you think, and did you find it to be inherently incompatible with Catholicism?
