Can we extricate ourselves from Molinism?
(07-31-2011, 10:23 PM)Gregory I Wrote: Ok here is the problem Melkite. Scripture teaches that it is not he who wills or works, but it is GOD who calls. We cannot work our salvation unless his grace precedes us. It is semi-pelagian to think the reprobate can will their way to GOD. The reprobate, this whom GOD doesnt give grace to, doNOT desire him. They do not miss out on anything, BECAUSE they don't want him, because they are not called. There is no injustice here.

That doesn't address anything I said.  It's not a problem for God's grace to precede our cooperation.  However, if that is the necessity, then God must necessarily call all, and then some choose not to follow him.  After all, it is God's will that none should perish.  Unless the Bible is fallible, then that must mean that God gives the necessary grace to choose to follow him to everyone.
