Episode 5.5: A Punishing Providence


Why does God allow his children to be left to seasons of temptation? What does it mean for God to chasten for former sin? What is hidden corruption? Is God’s leaving his children contrary to the Lord’s Prayer? How does God expose the deceitfulness of the heart? What holy ends does God purpose for his punishing providences? Tune in as we discuss these questions and more as Nathan, Joel, Shawn, and Kyle talk about WCF 5.5:

The most wise, righteous, and gracious God does oftentimes leave, for a season, His own children to manifold temptations, and the corruption of their own hearts, to chastise them for their former sins, or to discover unto them the hidden strength of corruption and deceitfulness of their hearts, that they may be humbled; and, to raise them to a more close and constant dependence for their support upon Himself, and to make them more watchful against all future occasions of sin, and for sundry other just and holy ends.
