神人合作 与 神恩独作:自由意志 与 白白恩典
Free Will Synergism Vs. Free Grace Monergism



by John Hendryx
诚之译自:http://www.monergism.com/thethreshold/articles/onsite/synmon.html


神人合作教导:“凡信的人就被预定得永生。”但是圣经教导:“凡预定得永生的人都信了。”(徒13:48)
Synergists teach '... and as many as believed were ordained to eternal life.' but the Bible teaches 'And as many as were ordained to eternal life, believed.' (Acts 13:48)

神人合作教导:“除了选择子的人之外,没有人知道父。”但是圣经教导,“除了子和子所愿意指示(启示)的,没有人知道父。”(太11:27)他们是那些会选择子的人。
Synergists teach '...no one knows the Father except those who choose the Son.' But the Bible teaches that 'no one knows the Father except the Son and anyone to whom the Son chooses to reveal Him' (Matt 11:27) They are the ones who 'choose' the Son.

神人合作教导:“所有来到基督的,都是出于他们的自由意志。”但是耶稣教导,“若不是蒙我父的恩赐,没有人能到我这里来”(约6:35),而且,“凡父所赐给我的人必到我这里来”(约6:37)。
Synergists teach that 'All can come to Christ of their own free will', but Jesus teaches that 'no one can come to me unless it is granted him by the Father.' (John 6:65) and all whom He grants will come (John 6:37)

神人合作教导:“你们不是基督的羊,因为你们不信。”但是耶稣教导,“你们不信,因为你们不是我的羊。”(约10:26)
Synergists teach that 'you are not Christ's sheep because you do not believe', but Jesus teaches that 'you do not believe because you are not of My sheep.' (John 10:26)

神人合作教导:“你们之所以不是出于神,是因为你们不听且不信神的话。”但是耶稣教导,“你们不听,因为你们不是出于神。”(约8:47)
Synergists teach that 'the reason you are not of God is because you are unwilling to hear and believe God's words.' Jesus, on the other hand, taught, 'The reason why you do not hear [God's words] is that you are not of God." (John 8:47)

神人合作教导,“拯救是一件容易的事,连住在洞穴里的人也能办到。”但是圣经教导,“在人所不能的事,在神却能。”(路18:27)
Synergists teach that 'salvation is so easy a cave man can do it" but the Bible teaches that “What is impossible with man is possible with God.” (Luke 18:27)

在神的计划中,人有责任要相信福音,但是却没有这个道德能力,因为人在堕落之后已经失去这个天然的资源。这个“无能”(根源于我们与亚当紧密的“联合”——所有的人都“在亚当里”堕落了,是“死在罪恶过犯中”的,是放纵私欲的“可怒之子”,参见罗马书5:12-19;弗2:1-5),神仍然要我们负责——我们欠了银行的债,虽然没有能力偿还,但是我们对此债务仍然是有责任的。所以,即使我们已经没有任何资源,神完全有权要我们偿还这个债务。教会有义务要呼召所有的人悔改,相信福音,但是没有人会相信。但是神出于祂极大的怜悯,仍然施恩给许多的人,开启他们的心窍,好让他们相信福音。
In the Divine economy men are responsible to believe the gospel, but are morally impotent to do so from their own native resource. This inability (due to our intimate solidarity with Adam's sin) is something we are culpable for, like owing a debt we cannot repay. So God has every right to call us all to account to 'repay our debt', so to speak, even though we do not have the resources to do so. The Church is to call all men to repent and believe the gospel (an imperative) but no one believes. But God, in his great mercy, still has mercy on many, opening their hearts to the gospel that that might believe.

对这点,主张神人合作的人,经常引用“愿意的可以来”(whosoever will may come)这句话。我们的回应是:这句话并不表示我们有能力这样作,而是教导:我们所“应该”作的。正如马丁路德说过的:“是不是说‘你们要回转’就表示你们有能力回转?是不是说‘你要尽心、尽性、尽力爱耶和华你的神’,你就能全心爱神?这些论证能证明,‘自由意志’不需要神的恩典,可以靠它自己的能力成就万事……但是不表示说人可以靠自己的能力得到归正,神的话也不是这个意思;它们只是说:‘如果你定意要人回转,就告诉人他应该要做些什么。当他知道了,也看到他办不到,他就会问到哪里才能找到这个能力……”(路德)
To this sometimes a synergist often quotes "whosoever will may come" to which we reply that this quote does not teach an indicative of what we are able to do, but rather, teaches what we 'ought' to do. As Martin Luther said, "Does it follow from: 'turn ye' that therefore you can turn? Does it follow from "'Love the Lord thy God with all thy heart' (Deut 6.5) that therefore you can love with all your heart? What do arguments of this kind prove, but the 'free-will' does not need the grace of God, but can do all things by its own power...But it does not follow from this that man is converted by his own power, nor do the words say so; they simply say: "if thou wilt turn, telling man what he should do. When he knows it, and sees that he cannot do it, he will ask whence he may find ability to do it..." Luther BW,164
