Episode 9.5: The State of Glory


What is the state of glory? How is this state prefigured in the Tree of Life? How do we define and measure the “good” which will be done in the state of glory? If immutability is a divine attribute how can our wills be said to be “immutable”? Does perfection and immutability deprive us of free will in glory? Pastorally, can you discuss what it will be like to be freed from the presence of sin? What will the eternal state be of those who do not believe? How does this paragraph help us against present temptations? Tune in as Nathan, Shawn, Joel and Kyle discuss WCF 9.5:

The will of man is made perfectly and immutably free to do good alone in the state of glory only.
