Heidelcast 219: Our Father (9): “Forgive Us Our Debts” (Plus Dr Clark Answers Heidelmail And Heideltexts)

In this episode Dr Clark answers Heidelmail from Kwan about what Acts 2:42 and signs and wonders, from Exile1986 about how to answer a child’s question about why we cannot see Jesus right now, and from Jerome about an expression in Dane Ortlund’s Gentle and Lowly on the objective and subjective aspects of salvation. Then he turns to the fifth petition of the Lord’s Prayer: “forgive us our debts as we forgive our debtors.” Does the as in the fifth petition turn the covenant of grace into a covenant of works? Does our forgiveness really depend on whether and how well we forgive others? What does this petition tell us about self-righteousness? He tackles these questions and more.
