Can we extricate ourselves from Molinism?
True wulfrano. But God does not save everyone. Only those he wills to be saved. Those are the elect. Christ's death on the cross was sufficient for all, but he does not apply it to all, but only to those he wants to save.

Romans 9

11For when the children were not yet born, nor had done any good or evil (that the purpose of God, according to election, might stand,)

    12Not of works, but of him that calleth, it was said to her: The elder shall serve the younger.

    13As it is written: Jacob I have loved, but Esau I have hated.

    14What shall we say then? Is there injustice with God? God forbid.

    15For he saith to Moses: I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy; and I will shew mercy to whom I will shew mercy.

    16So then it is not of him that willeth, nor of him that runneth, but of God that sheweth mercy.

    17For the scripture saith to Pharao: To this purpose have I raised thee, that I may shew my power in thee, and that my name may be declared throughout all the earth.

    18Therefore he hath mercy on whom he will; and whom he will, he hardeneth.

    19Thou wilt say therefore to me: Why doth he then find fault? for who resisteth his will?

    20O man, who art thou that repliest against God? Shall the thing formed say to him that formed it: Why hast thou made me thus?

    21Or hath not the potter power over the clay, of the same lump, to make one vessel unto honour, and another unto dishonour?

    22What if God, willing to shew his wrath, and to make his power known, endured with much patience vessels of wrath, fitted for destruction,

    23That he might shew the riches of his glory on the vessels of mercy, which he hath prepared unto glory?
