Episode 10.4: Called But Not Chosen


Why are there those who never believe? What is the “ministry of the Word” and what is its connection to the call? What are the “common operations of the Spirit”? What might it look like for someone to never truly come to Christ? Why is the light of nature insufficient for salvation? Tune in as Nathan, Shawn, Joel, and Kyle discuss WCF 10.4:

Others, not elected, although they may be called by the ministry of the Word, and may have some common operations of the Spirit, yet they never truly come unto Christ, and therefore cannot be saved: much less can men, not professing the Christian religion, be saved in any other way whatsoever, be they never so diligent to frame their lives according to the light of nature, and the laws of that religion they do profess. And to assert and maintain that they may, is very pernicious, and to be detested.
