Grace Is Not Undeserved Favor. — Graham Cooke.Please help support the mission of New Advent and get the full contents of this website as an instant download. Wherein he shows that Pelagius is disingenuous in his confession of grace , inasmuch as he places grace either in nature and free will , or in law and teaching; and, moreover, asserts that it is merely the possibility as he calls it of will and action, and not the will and action itself, which is assisted by divine grace ; and that this assisting grace , too, is given by God according to men's merits; while he further thinks that they are so assisted for the sole purpose of being able the more easily to fulfil the commandments. Augustine examines those passages of his writings in which he boasted that he had bestowed express commendation on the grace of God , and points out how they can be interpreted as referring to law and teaching — in other words, to the divine revelation and the example of Christ which are alike included in the teaching, — or else to the remission of sins ; nor do they afford any evidence whatever that Pelagius really acknowledged Christian grace , in the sense of help rendered for the performance of right action to natural faculty and instruction, by the inspiration of a most glowing and luminous love ; and he concludes with a request that Pelagius would seriously listen to Ambrose, whom he is so very fond of quoting, in his excellent eulogy in commendation of the grace of God. How greatly we rejoice on account of your bodily, and, above all, your spiritual welfare, my most sincerely attached brethren and beloved of God , Albina, Pinianus, and Melania, we cannot express in words; we therefore leave all this to your own thoughts and belief, in order that we may now rather speak of the matters on which you consulted us. We have, indeed, had to compose these words to the best of the ability which God has vouchsafed to us, while our messenger was in a hurry to be gone, and amidst many occupations, which are much more absorbing to me at Carthage than in any other place whatever. Now, whoever hears these words, and is ignorant of the opinion which he has clearly enough expressed in his books — not those, indeed, which he declares to have been stolen from him in an incorrect form, nor those which he repudiates, but those even which he mentions in his own letter which he forwarded to Rome — would certainly suppose that the views he holds are in strict accordance with the truth.
