Gratia resistibilis

(resistible grace). Luths. are among those who teach that saving grace is resistible because it is offered through means. Others (e.g., Ref.) teach that God imparts grace without means and that such grace is irresistible (gratia irresistibilis). See also Pelagian Controversy, 3.
