Nicene and Post-Nicene Fathers, Vol. V:
A Treatise on Nature and Grace.: Chapter 6

Early Church Fathers  Index     

Chapter 6 [VI.]—The Pelagians Have Very Strong and Active Minds.

If we are simply wise according to the Scriptures, we are not compelled to dispute against the grace of Christ, and to make statements attempting to show that human nature both requires no Physician,—in infants, because it is whole and sound; and in adults, because it is able to suffice for itself in attaining righteousness, if it will. Men no doubt seem to urge acute opinions on these points, but it is only word-wisdom, 1144 by which the cross of Christ is made of none effect. This, however, “is not the wisdom which descendeth from above.” 1145 The words which follow in the apostle’s statement I am unwilling to quote; for we would rather not be thought to do an injustice to our friends, whose very strong and active minds we should be sorry to see running in a perverse, instead of an upright, course.
