Predestination and Puffery

Dear Readers,

I just had a debate over predestination and efficacious grace. After that, I still don’t see much of a difference between moderate Molinism and Banezian predestination. I wonder if it’s merely a confusion of something like a necessity of the consequent – God inspiring the will by proposing a final end to the will and God directly intending each supernatural action by supernatural grace, as He sustains every act both in existence and as supernatural by reason of the formal perfection of every supernatural act, and thus every act remains modally free even though, by necessity of the consequent, the person willing actually chooses the good. At this point, I’m not sure. I’ve still got to think more about the problem.

In the end, though, I have one thing to say:


Yours in Christ,

Br. James Dominic, OP

    Talk about getting sucked into a Zombo-com vortex. It’s hypnotic!
