    Episode 92: Spiritual Gifts (Part 4)

    In this episode we will continue our discussion of the Wesleyan perspective on the gifts of the Holy Spirit. We will continue to be reading sections of the article, "Wesley, the Almost Charismatic" by Peter J. Bellini. Our conversation primarily focuses on how although Wesley was not a charismatic "in theory" he was a charismatic "in practice." We will specifically focus on how Wesley evaluated all extraordinary gifts in light of both his "holiness hermeneutic" and the authority of Scripture. We end the episode discussing Bellini's verdict that Wesley was "An Almost Charismatic."

    Episode 91: Spiritual Gifts (Part 3)

    In this episode we will continue to explore the Wesleyan perspective on the gifts of the Holy Spirit. As our guide we will be reading through an article titled, "Wesley, the Almost Charismatic" by Peter J. Bellini. Our conversation will primarily focus on how Wesley emphasized the "ordinary fruits" of the Holy Spirit rather than the "extraordinary gifts" of the Holy Spirit. We will also discuss that while Wesley was not a charismatic "in theory" he was not a cessationist either. We will continue discussing this article in the next episode of Remonstrance.

why Did I do this ---- ,

Amazing!

This is an amazing podcast! I definitely recommend this to Arminians & Calvinists. I’ll pray this podcast is heard everywhere, so people understand true orthodox Wesleyan Arminian theology, God bless.

Very Informative!

As a Calvinist I have found this podcast to be a breath of fresh air. Lots of soteriological podcasts these days are dogmatic and defensive, but this one is different. Even though I disagree with some aspects of the theology here, I really appreciate the helpful articulation of Classical Arminian beliefs. Keep it up!

So thankful for this podcast!

This podcast is much needed today. There is a surplus of theological teaching available online from a Calvinistic perspective but only a very small amount that you can find from a Classical Arminian perspective. Thanks Vin and Ben for helping to fill that void. This podcast has been so helpful to me! I have learned so much about the teachings of Arminius and Wesley and their views on providence, soteriology, etc. Keep up the good work! God bless you.
