I meant that that was the church's view of it (at least, according to the
Catholics and Anglicans/Episcopalians I have read on the subject): not that
I necessarily agreed.

But I think a loving parent's natural willingess to forgive an errant child
even before he or she is aware of being errant is similar to the concept of
prevenient grace: "It was I who made the eye" (mangling Herbert's line from
Love III?).
