Episode 3.8: Predestination’s Prudence and Care


In today’s episode, “Predestination’s Prudence and Care, or a Discussion on the Experiential Results of the Doctrine of Predestination by Which the Real and Tangible Blessings of this Doctrine for God’s People is Manifest Not in Meditation and Naval Gazing but in Our Piety and Worship,” we discuss questions like: what is doctrine? How and why do some people respond to predestination? What is “care” and “prudence”? How can this truth be used to comfort and assure us? What place does it have in private, family, and corporate worship? Tune in as Nathan, Joel, Shawn, and Kyle discuss WCF 3.8:

The doctrine of this high mystery of predestination is to be handled with special prudence and care, that men, attending the will of God revealed in His Word, and yielding obedience thereunto, may, from the certainty of their effectual vocation, be assured of their eternal election. So shall this doctrine afford matter of praise, reverence, and admiration of God; and of humility, diligence, and abundant consolation to all that sincerely obey the Gospel.
