    Episode 110: Arminius' Fourfold Doctrine of Predestination (Part 2)

    Episode 110: Arminius' Fourfold Doctrine of Predestination (Part 2)

    In this series of episodes we will be diving into Arminius' Fourfold Doctrine of Predestination as outlined in his Declaration of Sentiments (1608). We will see how it aligns with Covenant Theology, Scripture, and is thoroughly Christocentric. In this episode we will focus on the third and fourth decree in Arminius' Fourfold Doctrine of Predestination. The fourth is the most controversial because it deals with "particular" election of individuals. We will also look at how Middle Knowledge fits into the theology of Arminius and what W. Stephen Gunter thinks of all of this in the analysis section of his book. 
    Resources Used:
    Arminius and His Declaration of Sentiments (W. Stephen Gunter)

    Episode 109: Arminius' Fourfold Doctrine of Predestination (Part 1)

    In this series of episodes we will be diving into Arminius' Fourfold Doctrine of Predestination as outlined in his Declaration of Sentiments (1608). We will see how it aligns with Covenant Theology, Scripture, and is thoroughly Christocentric. We will also discuss whether it could be described as "Reformed" or not and compare it to various Calvinistic versions of the doctrine of predestination. Could the theology of Arminius be more "Reformed" than the theology of many Calvinists today? I think so. Listen in to see what you think.

    Episode 108: On Divine Providence (Part 2)

    Episode 108: On Divine Providence (Part 2)

    This month, we will be releasing a teaching I did last year based on John Wesley’s sermon “On Divine Providence” in two parts. There is a link to Wesley's sermon below. The teaching was done only a few weeks into the COVID-19 Pandemic and recorded at Wesley Chapel, the church where I serve as Lead Pastor. It focuses on how the doctrine of providence gives us hope and confidence even in times of uncertainty because the doctrine reveals that God is ultimately in control. If you are interested in listening to expository preaching from a Wesleyan-Arminian perspective then check out the Wesley Chapel podcast.

Accurate Representation of Arminian Theology

A clear and articulate defense of freed-will theology-one of my favorite podcasts!

Informational

I came across this podcast at work and I’m thrilled by the information that is shared. A great line of foundation doctrine of the Wesleyan theology for any curious Methodist out there. Highly recommend!

Informative, Faithful, and Irenic

Vin, drawing upon Wesley says he is an Arminian “on the very edge of Calvinism.” I enjoy that because that is where I am too. I have gone to Calvinist churches for 11 years now because they are usually some of the most faithful churches where I live. Even though I myself am an Arminian Molinist, we have always gotten along swell despite our differences. As a result, I find both the theology of this podcast and it’s irenic posture to be a breath of fresh air!

Remonstrance produces some great and accessible episodes which I can share with my Reformed friends to help dispel some misconceptions they might have about Wesleyan theology. I appreciate how faithful Vin is to look at the primary sources and discern what it is Arminius and Wesley themselves actually believed!
