Isn’t The Bible Misogynistic? - Part 2 (Hermeneutical Foundations)

July 16th, 2016

In this episode we continue our discussion of the so called "misogyny" of the Bible by laying a hermeneutical foundation for how we are to read the Bible in a Redemptive Historical and how Jesus is the answer in the back of the book so to speak. We explore Paul's view that Jesus tore down social dividing lines and what this does to show the ultimate intention of God and his work of subverting Ancient Near Eastern cultural norms throughout the Old Testament.

January 31st, 2016

In this episode we wrap up our discussion of the Doctrines of Grace by showing how Calvinism is relevant in the discipline of apologetics and why Calvinism is a more helpful response to the problem of evil and the problem of divine hiddenness than that of typical responses to those arguments.

The Doctrines of Grace - Irresistible Grace

December 12th, 2015

In this episode we continue out look at the Reformed Doctrines of Grace, also known as Calvinism. We have been working our way through the Russian Nesting Dolls and have now gotten to the question of how God applies the atonement of Christ to his elect people. Can people by the working of their own free will reject the gospel call of God when he has elected and atoned for them? Of does the work of the Spirit happen in a way that cannot be repelled?

That is the question for this episode of The Freed Thinker Podcast!

November 24th, 2015

 In this episode we continue our series looking at the Reformed Doctrines of Grace otherwise known as the doctrines of Calvinism. Next time we will be looking at the doctrine known as Limited Atonement so for this episode we are looking at the intent of the atonement.
