Heidelcast 228: From Every Tribe, Tongue, And Nation (5)—First Head Of Doctrine (2)

In this episode Dr Clark returns the series on the Canons of Dort (1619). The second thing that the Reformed did in response to the Remonstrants was to quote two passages: 1 John 1:9 and John 3:16. The Synod of Dort was a gospel-synod. They also repeated the law, because the Remonstrants downplayed the effects of the fall and thus changed, were it possible, the nature of grace. In this episode, Dr Clark also answers Heideltexts and Heidelmails about books on the Synod of Dort (see below); about whether regenerate people can regularly break the Sabbath, about when the covenant of works was instituted, about Lutheran and Reformed union churches, what podcasts I recommend, and about tithing.
