    The Roman Catholic Church made it clear that they were not Calvinist. I want to look at a few canon's from the Council of Trent and see what you think.


    (The Roman Catholic Council of Trent, The Sixth Session: Justification)


    Do you agree or disagree with the Roman church on this one?

    ahhh, thank you, that indeed it is. That explains a lot. It's the connection to the Roman church that the free willer/non cal/arminians wishes to avoid in their resistance to that label SYNERGISM.

    Synergism: the doctrine that the human will cooperates with the Holy Ghost in the work of regeneration.

    Monergism: the doctrine that the Holy Ghost acts independently of the human will in the work of regeneration.


    Now I understand. Thanks again.

    I wouldn't worry about this guy. He is just a troll. Maybe someone we know here that has gone out and made a name for himself.

    1. Yes, I believe man has an obligation of faith, confession and belief, so yes...label me a synergist

    2. I agree in "free will" being a part of God's purpose and design. I personally will make no such "judgements" about those who disagreed with this, rather leaving that up to the deity.

    How honest of you it to ask a question, pretending to be sincere, and then put words in the mouth of those who answer it the way you don't want it answered?

    it is dishonest, if I did as you said.

    This is why I asked. Surely he didn't mean that he agreed with the whole statement, as he had said. Now...you said I put words in his mouth.

    Let us review.

    Those words are IN THE STATEMENT!! I didn't place them there. This is what QF said he agreed with. THEREFORE puzzled.

    Lets see who is honest here.

    The Roman Catholic Council of Trent is something that many Baptist have never read. As we go through this document, it will become clear what theology is the closer to RCC. I bring this up for many reasons. One reason, in the past it has been said that Calvin is a RCC reject teaching RCC doctrines. While some doctrines we ALL will agree on, those that stand in the greatest opposition will be in the area of salvation, which was what gave us the Reformation.

    We have already seem monergism of the reformation rejected here by some. Synergism was what Erasmus (RCC) came up with in his debate with Luther and what the Pope and the RCC followed later at Trent.

    I have a lot of work a head of me today, but once I have time, I hope to go through all the key canons of Trent.

    maybe you could say this. But only to have others talk about it. History is good for everyone.

    You understood that in him agreeing with the second statement did not mean he agreed that anyone who didn't agree with him was damned to eternal hell. Or, why did you ask if anyone agreed with a statement no one would agree with completely. You are baiting us non-cal's into a argument, something you do often.

    Robert, I did agree with the statement and also after "childish chiding" clarified and qualified. Let him do with it whatever he wishes. His thoughts are not mine.
