Heidelcast 225: From Every Tribe, Tongue, And Nation (3)—Introduction To The Canons Of Dort (3)

In this episode Dr Clark continues the series on the Canons of Dort (1619). The Remonstrant (Arminian) narrative has long been that they are victims of Reformed ecclesiastical aggression. The facts, however, tell a different story. The Arminians had powerful ecclesiastical, political, and cultural supporters who enabled Arminius himself to become influential and even protected. In that way, the Arminians anticipated our current culture of “identity politics” and “intersectionality.” How did politics affect the course of the Arminian crisis? Who were some of the political supporters? How did the Reformed across Europe and the British Isles analyze the theology of the Remonstrants? Dr Clark addresses these questions and more. He also answers three pieces of Heidelmail in this episode, from Mary about how females fit into the Old Testament practice of circumcision and what about the case where the father in a house was unbelieving?; from D about the practice of having unordained males and females reading Scripture during the worship service in a PCA congregation; and from Mark on the question of “conversational prayer.”
