In this episode, Dr. Clark continues his series on the Canons of Dort, looking at the Fifth Head of Doctrine, specifically examining one of the great and persisting differences between the Reformed and Remonstrant (Arminian) confessions: the difference between the Reformed realism about the Christian life as distinct from the latent Remonstrant perfectionism, i.e., the Pelagianizing doctrine of entire, sinless perfection short of glory. Dr. Clark expounds on this element of perseverance of the saints. He also answers questions from Tim, asking about what Bible apps are best to used from a Reformed perspective, and from Eric who asks about a new book called The Rise of the New Puritans by Noah Rothman. The opening audio clip is Aldo Leon on the Presbycast.
