In this episode, we continue our series on the five points of Calvinism by considering irresistible grace. After contending for “effectual calling” as a better term, we explain what is not meant by irresistible grace. We then turn our attention to the Bible and the confessions to help illustrate the goodness of this doctrine.
Member Podcast Description: We let it rip a little bit on the inconsistencies that exist in the Calvingelical world with respect to God’s grace–especially after conversion. We consider how repentance is so often turned into a work that we do and is scrutinized at every turn.
