Episode 16.1: Definition of Good Works


What is Antinomianism and what relationship does it have to this paragraph? Can you discuss the placement of this paragraph in the theology of the standards? Positively, what makes something a “good work”? Why are good works restricted to God’s Word and how does that relate to the Confession’s teaching on the sufficiency of Scripture? What criteria would you use to determine what is “warranted” by the Word? Negatively, what are not good works? Tune in as Nathan, Shawn, and Kyle discuss WCF 16.1:

Good works are only such as God has commanded in his holy Word, and not such as, without the warrant thereof, are devised by men, out of blind zeal, or upon any pretence of good intention.
