Synergism and Monergism: Which one is scriptural?

It has been almost two years since I wrote my last post.  Today I just posted as page (on top, below title of blog) my post on synergism and monergism.

    The term “free will” is an oximoron. Our will determines what we want. Biblically, we are born spiritually dead with a fallen will, spiritually isolated from God, slaves to our sin. At salvation, we are spiritually regenerated, reconnected spiritually to God, given a redeemed will, slaves of righteousness. Repentance for a believer is the new Natural. God saved us from sin, initially by decree (justification), daily by sanctification through repentance, and, by Glorification at our physical death. Only the blood of Christ can remit sin. All the hocus pocus of Catholicism reveals a absence of spiritual connection to God. Many in protestantism are equally lacking a spiritual connection to God. Those who God knows seek to honor Him and repent when they fall short.

    Romans 8:28-39 NKJV

    And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose. For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren. Moreover whom He predestined, these He also called; whom He called, these He also justified; and whom He justified, these He also glorified. What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things? Who shall bring a charge against God’s elect? It is God who justifies. Who is he who condemns? It is Christ who died, and furthermore is also risen, who is even at the right hand of God, who also makes intercession for us. Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? As it is written: “For Your sake we are killed all day long; We are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.” Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

      You commented without reading what I wrote. If you want to have discussion it should be two-way – you don’t come here to preach!

    You really make it seem so easy with your
    presentation but I find this topic to be really something which I think I would never
    understand. It seems too complicated and very broad for me.
    I’m looking forward for your next post, I’ll try
    to get the hang of it!

      Thank you for your feedback. I am thinking to revise it to make it easy for those who are not familiar with the issue to understand.

    Thanks for posting this new bit. I will have a careful look at the pdf. I already see something I can use in catechism class.
