Semipelagianism is a theological construct defining salvation between the positions of Augustine and Pelagius. Augustine taught that man cannot come to God without the grace of God and this grace is 100% of God and not any act of man. God redeems and regenerates sinful man, giving him faith to repent and believe the Gospel. Pelagius taught that within man is the capability and will to come to God, effecting his own salvation. In Semipelagian thought, a distinction is made between the beginning of faith and the growing of faith. Semipelagian thought teaches that God gives a general call to all mankind and that the beginning of faith is an act inate within man's free will to respond to the Gospel, while the latter half - growing in faith - is the work of God. Grace is seen supervening only later, after man's initial inate faith and belief of the Gospel. As was Pelagianism before, semipelagianism was declared heresy in the Second Council of Orange, AD 529. In the Reformation of the Church, two schools of thought developed around this divide: Calvinism adopted the Augustinian view that regeneration is solely of God without any work of man. The nature and thus the will of the elect is changed by the holy Spirit and only then will man in response both repent and believe the Gospel. Arminianism took a position between semipelagian heresy and Augustine. God takes initiative in the salvation process and His grace comes to every individual. This grace draws people strongly towards salvation, thus enabling the possibility of man's will to faith. This faith leads to regeneration unless finally resisted. The offer of salvation through grace does not act irresistibly in a purely cause-effect, deterministic method but rather in an influence-response fashion that could be either freely accepted and freely denied.
