God knows all things, but does His foreknowledge impact our free will? Often a hot button topic amongst Christians, Calvinism focuses heavily on God’s sovereignty, predestination, and election. But does the Calvinist’s view of these terms correctly represent Paul’s use of the words predestination and election?
Join Frank as he sits down with our friend Dr. Leighton Flowers of Soteriology 101 to discuss the core beliefs of Calvinism. Formerly a proponent of Calvinism, Leighton shares the story of his journey into Calvinism and why he eventually chose to abandon it a decade later. In this midweek episode, Leighton gives us insight into the mind of the Calvinist by answering the following:
What does T.U.L.I.P. stand for?
What are the go to passages that Calvinists use as proof-texts?
When did Calvinism enter church history?
How do Calvinists define predestination and election?
What is determinism?
Did the Apostle Paul teach Calvinism?
How do we reconcile God’s sovereignty with human responsibility and our free will?
Are you capable of responding positively to the work of God? That is the question!
