    Augustine's Gospel Testimony Shortly Before Death

    Brethren,

    Here is a link to what I am talking about: https://www.newadvent.org/fathers/15121.htm

    Of course, the source is Roman Catholic but that does not matter.

    I have written a lot against the teaching of Gus on meritorious justification in his Enchiridion and The City of God. But in my studied opinion, he had a very radical change on the matter of God's grace being purely sovereign and denying all merit very near the end of his life. This is also confirmed by a study of his Retractions which came shortly before, which are hard to find but I have a copy (with heavily Roman Catholic commentary denying what is actually said).

    Please respond with evaluation, comment, or questions!

    Bro. Bob

    Bob, this is excellent to hear! I'll forward to Cole because I know he has been studying Augustine.
