Dr. Clark, God created us, but He has no obligation to us because of that mere act creation. Therefore, as contingent beings, even in a biological and natural sense, we depend on His common grace for every movement. I seriously do not see any contradiction with what Augustine taught and the Covenant of Works. Why is it so heretical to say that Adam was able to obey God because of supernatural grace from God ? There is no equivocation on human nature. God simply gave man over to disobedience at the fall. God ordained the fall of Satan and man because the lamb was slain before the foundation of the world. The problem is the fallacious logical order of infralapsarianism. supralapsarians have always understood the need for common grace.
