"...if anyone makes the assistance of grace depend on the humility or obedience of man and does not agree that it is a gift of grace itself that we are obedient and humble, he contradicts the Apostle who says, "What have you that you did not receive?" (1 Cor. 4:7), and, "But by the grace of God I am what I am" (1 Cor. 15:10). (Council of Orange: Canon 6)

    Winner of Monergism T-Shirt Contest

    Congratulations to Jake Stutzman, the winner of the T-Shirt design contest of 2007. While there were many well-designed entries, Jake's design, we believe, best captured the spirit of our website. The concept of monergistic regeneration, as many of you know, is a Christ-centered, biblically derived concept, a doctrine which pervades the Scripture. And we really like the verses chosen by Jake and believe those who wear the shirt will have ample opportunity to give glory to God by giving testimony to onlookers who will want to know more about God's grace in Christ towards sinners...

    As far as the other designs, there were a couple of very good runner-ups including the other baby blue 5 solas design (also by Jake) and the Luther and five solas shirt by Matt Johnson . Since these other designs are also very good and affirmed by many others, we have considered that, at a later time, we may wish to work out something with the designers of those designs for shirts as well. We wish we could print them all now but there is a investment to be made in printing them up and, more importantly, there is only one winner of this contest.

    Again, congratulations to Jake for his excellent design. We hope to get these printed up in the very near future.

    The two designs by Jake are great. And being in NYC, it's definitely stylish for people to actually wear. I would wear them and I don't even like graphic tees.

    what color shirt is the first one going to be printed on?

    I still like the baby blue shirt. The little bit of Latin provides on opportunity to translate and further explain their meanings to the curious.

    Sweet! I really wanted that design to win.
