Episode 5.6 A Hardening Providence

heavy-heart

What defines the people in this paragraph as wicked? Why has God blinded them for their former sins? What happens when the grace of God shines in the heart versus what we read in this paragraph? What gifts are the wicked given? Where do we read about the world, the flesh, and the devil? Tune in as we discuss these questions and more as Nathan, Joel, Shawn, and Kyle talk about WCF 5.6:

As for those wicked and ungodly men whom God, as a righteous Judge, for former sins, does blind and harden, from them He not only withholds His grace whereby they might have been enlightened in their understandings, and wrought upon in their hearts; but sometimes also withdraws the gifts which they had, and exposes them to such objects as their corruption makes occasion of sin; and, withal, gives them over to their own lusts, the temptations of the world, and the power of Satan, whereby it comes to pass that they harden themselves, even under those means which God uses for the softening of others.
