What is this heresy?

Hi everyone!

Yesterday at daily mass, my priest was talking about a certain heresy where you believe you only need a little bit of God’s help, or that if you work hard enough, you can overcome obstacles with very little intercession from God. I don’t quite remember what he defined it as. I believe it sounded similar to the word “plagiarism”. Do you know which heresy this is? Thank you! God bless!

Pelagianism -
a website with the full story of it :


In a sense… it is the idea that original sin and man’s fallen nature do not exist and the man himself is sufficient enough to “go in it alone” without the aid of God.

God bless

Thank you! :smiley:
