Summary of text [comment] page 78
The limited goods (that a sinful person chooses) have a tendency to slip away. A sinful person may cling to a shred of virtue. But only for so long.
Schoonenberg wrote that fallen man is unable, without grace, to keep the commandments of the natural law for a long time.

Does Schoonenberg conflate thinkdivine and lawessential?
Or does his intuition implicitly comply with the explicit model of the intersection of virtue and sin?]
