Heidelcast 226: From Every Tribe, Tongue, And Nation (4)—First Head Of Doctrine (1)

In this episode Dr Clark continues the series on the Canons of Dort (1619). The first that the Reformed churches of Europe and the British Isles said to the world about their theology, in response to the challenge presented by the Remonstrants, was to re-establish what Luther had learned in 1513–14, namely that, because of Adam’s fall and because we are all “in Adam” (Rom 5:12–21), by right we should all be eternally condemned. Just as Augustine rediscovered Paul’s doctrine of sin (against Pelagius) and Luther rediscovered Paul’s doctrine of sin (against the Franscians), so too Synod re-stated the Pauline and Augustinian doctrine of sin against the Remonstrants. In this episode, Dr Clark answers Heideltexts and Heidelmails about the free or well-meant offer of the gospel, an Anabaptist group in Kansas that teaches final salvation through works, about whether Christians can be demon possessed, about signs and wonders after the apostolic age, about divine sovereignty and human responsibility, about certain Baptists who have become sympathetic to the Federal Vision theology.
