Episode 3.3: Predestination and Foreordination


Is “predestination” a biblical vocabulary word? How do you help people understand this word? What is the difference between predestination and foreordination? Why does the Confession talk about angels? What comfort can believers have by this and what warning can be given to unbelievers? Is Kyle going to reveal his lapsarian position? These are some of the questions we discuss on today’s episode. Join Joel, Shawn, Nathan and Kyle as they discuss Westminster Confession of Faith 3.3:

By the decree of God, for the manifestation of His glory, some men and angels are predestinated unto everlasting life; and others foreordained to everlasting death.
