This week’s term: Monergism – From Greek Mono (one or alone). Theologically, it is the philosophy or faith that God saves alone and completely apart from any cooperative human effort, not denying human submission or obedience, but asserting that those functions are effects of grace, not its causes.
Last week’s term: Synergism – From Greek synergos (working together). It is the doctrine held chiefly by Arminianism, which believes and propagates the philosophy of a cooperative effort between God and man in man’s salvation.
