Q[112] Of The Cause Of Grace
< previous   Prologue   next >

Prologue   A[1]   A[2]   A[3]   A[4]   A[5]  

We must now consider the cause of grace; and under this head there are five points of inquiry:

A[1] Whether God alone is the efficient cause of grace?

A[2] Whether any disposition towards grace is needed on the part of the recipient, by an act of free-will?

A[3] Whether such a disposition can make grace follow of necessity?

A[4] Whether grace is equal in all?

A[5] Whether anyone may know that he has grace?
