Good title. It fits perfectly with my latest stuff to show how the Arminians with their "Prevenient grace" nonsense completely render Christ inefficacious at the Cross in their attempts to mount up man as the efficacious cause of his own salvation.

What the Arminians don't realize is that by denying the saving grace they are essentially denying the Lord himself. For the Grace of God in Salvation has appeared. In other words Titus 2:11 is talking about the first coming of Christ. The appearance of the Saving Grace of God was the appearance of Christ Himself. To deny the efficatious saving grace is to deny Christ himself.

And the Arminian, who attempts to turn Titus 2:11 into "Prevenient Grace", is attempting to turn the first appearance of Christ into a sad inefficatious grace able to save no one.

I am probably going to have to add some of White's thoughts to the "predestination defense" article I have typed up on my computer and posted here once.
