I think you’re right. And I am uncomfortable with any attempt to combine monergism and synergism. They just don’t mix.

On the other hand:

We’ve been over this time and time again. I have explained carefully and patiently the nature of prevenient grace as a partial regeneration of the will–sufficient to overcome the bondage of the will to sin and to make possible a decision for God and the gospel of Jesus Christ with repentance and faith.


  1. These "on the other hand" posts remind me of the Animaniacs' "Good idea, bad idea" skits.

  2. Who gives anyone the right to partially regenerate my will, what if I didn't want it partially regenerated? It's like my foreskin, nobody asked, they just took it. My free-will has been violated. Nobody should be able to do anything to my person without a consent form! My personal autonomy is the highest good....
