Episode 3.4: The Particular and Unchangeable Design of Predestination


What is the difference between predestination and foreordination? Why does the Confession speak of angels? What comfort can come to us from the doctrine of predestination? How does it help us to understand redemption? Why is predestination not simply fate? Is predestination individual or a class of people? These are some of the questions we try to answer on today’s episode. Join Joel, Nathan, Shawn, and Kyle as they discuss Westminster Confession of Faith 3.4:

These angels and men, thus predestinated, and foreordained, are particularly and unchangeably designed, and their number so certain and definite, that it cannot be either increased or diminished.
