Calvinism as an Apologetic

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.

Doctrines of Grace - Perseverance of the Saints

January 8th, 2016
In this first episode of 2016 we look at the final Calvinistic doctrine known as the Perseverance of the Saints. It is the final layer of the Russian Nesting Doll and addresses the question of if a Christian can lose their salvation and fall away from the grace of God.

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!

Doctrines of Grace - The Atonement

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. I argue that we cannot understand the EXTENT of the atonement unless we understand the INTENT of the atonement.

Enjoy the show!

Doctrines of Grace - Total Depravity

November 15th, 2015

In this episode of the show, we start a series dealing with the Doctrines of Grace (typically called Calvinism). Getting some of these concepts in place will not only help resolve some of the recent debates on Molinism that the apologetical world has been engaged in, but also sets the stage for what I think are more robust and biblical answers to objections based on the problem of evil, suffering, and the "God is a moral monster" brand of argumentation.
