The Westminster Confession: Free Will

Do we have Free Will? The short answer is yes! But the more important question is What is free will? Let’s find out:

Westminster Confession Week 5: Sin and Covenant

It’s fun listening through (parts) of these lessons. This week I’m being rushed along as the praise team is playing in the sanctuary because I’ve run over on Sunday School. I have to say I like our new (old) schedule of Church first then Sunday School!
Hope you enjoy the lesson.

Reformation Week 4: The Inconvenient Doctrine

My nickname for God’s eternal decrees – The Inconvenient Doctrine is explained as we look at God’s total and complete Sovereign Grace

Taught these many years ago. There’s a good bit of overlap but hope they are edifying.

A Crash Course in Church History

This is the audio of an old lesson that was a “prequel” to a series on the Westminster Confession of Faith. Thought I’d upload it here for those new members who had not heard it yet. A few points I’d like to make here – I’m not a professor I make mistakes in my presentations, also towards the end I ran out of time and made a few points “inelegantly” so let me clarify here.

This wound up being a Church History Class with a little bit on the actual reformation itself but still it was a fun class to teach. I hope it will provide some edification to those who listen to it.
I was pointing out that in Church history there is not some point at which the Church was perfect. The Reformers did not have a “perfect point in history” to shoot for instead they were very truly trying to get back to the third century where at least the doctrine of the Church was clear and codified. Many point to the “First Century Church” as some form of perfect moment in history but this is not reflected in Scripture such as: “You foolish Galatians who has bewitched you?”
