Heidelcast For August 14, 2022: Every Tribe, Tongue, And Nation (12): Second Head Of Doctrine (4)

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 their second head of doctrine, the Remonstrants confessed, in 1610, that Jesus died for “all men and every man” and obtained for them all “redemption.” Yet, they say, no one enjoys forgiveness except the believer but then what did the Remonstrants mean by “faith”? It turns out that they meant faithfulness and perseverance. Also in this episode Dr Clark answers emails (one complete with audio) about the Side B movement’s appeal to alcoholism as an analogy for same-sex attraction. The opening audio clip comes from HB contributor Wendell Talley.

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 Thomas Watson’s The Mischief of Sin for $11.25. J. I. Packer wrote about Watson, “No Christian teacher ever saw the ugliness, folly, destructiveness, aggravations, and provocations of sin more clearly than the Puritans did. And no Puritan ever expressed these insights more piercingly than Thomas Watson.” He studied at Cambridge and became a leading English Reformed minister (Presbyterian) in the 17th century. He was a student of Scripture, the Fathers, and he use of the English language are all impressive. This is a valuable and intelligent work. Don’t forget: when you go to RHB please be sure to tell them that the Heidelcast sent you.
