Why is the decree of God not based on anything he has foreseen? What about other conditions? What is the Confession historically arguing against here? What do you do with those passages of Scripture that seem to indicate God reacts in response to his creatures? What is an “anthropopathism”? Can you guess Joel’s theologian? These are few of the questions we address in today’s episode. Join Shawn, Nathan, Joel, and Kyle as they sit down to discuss Westminster Confession of Faith 3.2:
Although God knows whatsoever may or can come to pass upon all supposed conditions; yet has He not decreed anything because He foresaw it as future, or as that which would come to pass upon such conditions.
