    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.

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!

Awesome

I enjoy listening to some Calvinist theologians just because they provide deep theological teachings no one else seems to offer anymore. Needless to say, I was overjoyed to have found a podcast that matches my own theology.

Thank you very much Vin for all you do! God bless all involved.

My only advice would be to offer shorter, 5 minute, bite-sized podcasts that are easier to listen to (in terms of time).
