Episode 3.5: On Predestination

god_chose_you_blog

What are some of the challenges people have with the biblical teaching on predestination? Where do we see predestination in the Bible? What is the significance of God’s mercy and love in predestination? Why is it before the foundation of the world? Did he predestine some due to foresight? What’s the highest purpose of God’s predestination? These are just a few of the questions we discuss in this week’s episode. Join Shawn, Joel, Nathan, and Kyle as we sit down to discuss Westminster Confession of Faith 3.5:

Those of mankind that are predestinated unto life, God, before the foundation of the world was laid, according to His eternal and immutable purpose, and the secret counsel and good pleasure of His will, has chosen, in Christ, unto everlasting glory, out of His mere free grace and love, without any foresight of faith, or good works, or perseverance in either of them, or any other thing in the creature, as conditions, or causes moving Him thereunto; and all to the praise of His glorious grace.
