By salvation I mean that moment at which one no longer is under the just condemnation of God but rather now is clothed in Christ's righteousness, having no righteousness of one's own. That would be monergistic. But then we have justification. That is by faith alone. It's when God imputes Christ's righteousness to our account. That would be which one?
What you have said above is actually all the same thing! <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/laugh.gif" alt="" /> Justification is a one-time pronouncement by God that a sinner is no longer under condemnation, he (the sinner) having been forgiven on the basis of Christ's righteousness being imputed to him/her.

Justification is "monergistic", even though the sinner is active (conversion), in that he/she repents and believes upon Christ.

Sanctification is "synergistic", even though it is the Holy Spirit dwelling in the believer Who guides, etc., the person to do good works.
