Heidelcast For October 9, 2022: Every Tribe, Tongue, And Nation (20): Third/Fourth Heads Of Doctrine (6)

In this episode Dr. Clark continues his series on the Canons of Dort where we are looking at the Third and Fourth Heads of Doctrine of the Canons of Dort, specifically examining regeneration in preparation for the Fifth Head of Doctrine which is on apostasy and the perseverance of the saints. Godfrey refers to the Canons of the Synod of Dort “emminantly pastoral” but not purely technical. Clark explains how the Reformation background—only about 100 years old when these were written—sets the stage for the Canons of Dort and the issues they address. He also answers questions from Alexander, John, and Michelle, et al. about the NAPARC church locator on the Heidelblog Resources page; and an email from Jackson who is looking for good books on the person and works of the Holy Spirit. The opening audio clip is from the Armstrong & Getty radio show.

This episode of the Heidelcast is sponsored by Westminster Seminary California. Are you thinking about seminary?
