Adam and (indirectly) Eve are granted special and nearly doubt-proof
knowledge of the Christian revelation, which granting itself seems to be an
instance of ³peculiar grace²-- they know that, if they remain faithful, they
will be rescued from death. This again would fit with the idea of ³peculiar
grace² as a booster rather than an irrevocable predestination.
