Episode 11.5: Fatherly Displeasure


Although justification can never be lost whey can our “sense” of it be? If justification is a one time act why does this paragraph teach that God continues to forgive sin? What biblical evidence can be given that we are to continue asking for forgiveness? Occasionally in Reformed writings you’ll read about “daily justification,” what is that? This paragraph distinguishes between punishment and discipline, what is that distinction? What pastoral counsel can be given to those who are under Fatherly displeasure? Tune in as Nathan, Joel, Shawn, and Kyle discuss WCF 11.5:

God does continue to forgive the sins of those that are justified; and although they can never fall from the state of justification, yet they may, by their sins, fall under God’s fatherly displeasure, and not have the light of His countenance restored unto them, until they humble themselves, confess their sins, beg pardon, and renew their faith and repentance.
