Heidelcast For July 31, 2022: Every Tribe, Tongue, And Nation (10): Second Head Of Doctrine (2)

In this episode Dr Clark continues his series on the the Canons of Dort where we are looking at the Second Head of Doctrine of the Canons of Dort on the atonement. In the debate between the Remonstrants (Arminians) and the Reformed, who is it who limits the value and extent of the atonement? According to the critics of Reformed theology, it is ostensibly the Reformed who limit the value of the atonement. After all, do not the Reformed affirm that Christ died only for the elect whereas the Remonstrants affirm that Christ died for all men and every man? We need to stop and consider, however, how the Remonstrants limited the value and efficacy of the atonement since in their doctrine that Christ died for all men and every man, what do they say that he accomplished by that death? The opening audio clip comes the World Magazine podcast.

The Heidelcast is proud to be sponsored by Reformation Heritage Books. Please show them that you are grateful for their support by visiting RHB online (or in person if you are in Grand Rapids), where you can find William McEwen, The Glory and Fullness of Christ: In the Most Remarkable Types, Figures, and Allegories of the Old Testament. This volume is $27.00 in hardcover. McEwen (1735–62) served as minister of the gospel at Associate Congregation in Dundee, Scotland. He studied divinity under Ebenezer Erskine and James Fisher, leaders in the Scottish secession from the national church. This work is in 3 books: 1. Typological persons, 2. Typological Things, and 3. Typological Places. McEwen is following in ancient Christian tradition. Since the earliest days, e.g., The Epislte of Barnabas (c. AD 120), the church has always read the Bible as types and shadows, promise and fulfillment, focusing on Christ–not national Israel. McEwen was a marrow man and pastor pointing his congregation to Christ as the center of God’s saving revelation and work. This is an edifying work. Don’t forget: when you go to RHB please be sure to tell them that the Heidelcast sent you.
