Episode 27.3: Grace Exhibited and Conferred

Can you address the errors of grace being conferred through the sacraments by the power within them, the piety or intention of the administrator? What biblical wisdom is there in making these distinctions? Is there evidence that one can be an unbeliever and receive the sacraments? Are there proof texts against this? What is the grace exhibited in the sacraments? What is the role of the Holy Spirit in that? What are the words of institution? What benefits are given and why are they important? Tune in as Nathan, Shawn, Joel, and Kyle discuss WCF 27.3:

The grace which is exhibited in or by the sacraments, rightly used, is not conferred by any power in them; neither doth the efficacy of a sacrament depend upon the piety or intention of him that doth administer it, but upon the work of the Spirit, and the word of institution, which contains, together with a precept authorizing the use thereof, a promise of benefit to worthy receivers.
