I am not a fan of Molinism because it fails to taker seriously not only At. Augustine, but also Saint Thomas; both of whom were basically the theological foundations of the western Church, both of whom taught God's unconditional election of man to salvation, and conditional election to damnation.

Molinism seems soft and kinda wimpy.

What would it take?
From Garrigou-Lagrange, OP - God: His Existence and His Nature,* Vol. 2, Appendix IV, p. 465:[Image: Garrigou-Lagrange+-+God%252C+vol.+2%252C...p.+465.jpg]

Good post, Geremia. Thank you for posting this commentary.

As I understand it, though, there are several unanswerable challenges made to the Thomistic doctrine of grace. I would be interested in hearing the Thomists' responses to them.
