Irresistible Grace and the Perseverance of the Saints

Reformed, More than a Word
Delivered on: 10 December 2017

To be reformed is to be about the Bible as a story of God's historic redemption in Christ which is advanced and understood by distinguishing covenants (grace and works or law and gospel). This covenantal story is about three actors working together who are Father Son and Holy Spirit. Another important factor in understanding the gospel is something known as the doctrines of grace which are also known as the five points of Calvinism. Having discussed sin, election and the cross, we now move into the concepts of the perseverance of the saints and irresistible grace. Does election teach that we are robots forced against our wills to respond to God? Can this free grace we receive be abandoned and or lost? What do we do with the texts about falling away? How do we reconcile God's sovereignty with our wills' place in humanity? (Various Scriptures)

Definite Atonement

Reformed, More than a Word

Pastor Aldo Leon - Various Scriptures
Reformed, More than a Word
Delivered on: 3 December 2017

To be reformed is to be about the Bible as a story of God's historic redemption in Christ which is advanced and understood by distinguishing covenants (grace and works or law and gospel). This covenantal story is about three actors working together who are Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Another important factor in understanding the gospel is something known as the doctrines of grace which are also known as the five points of Calvinism. The first two key points is that of total depravity and unconditional election. However, the question needs to be asked concerning how we get this unconditional election. The truth of definite atonement tells us that those God elected to save apart from their works are saved by a cross that worked an actual and full and real salvation for God’s elect. God’s cross was not a potential event for all but an actual saving event for some. It is this kind of cross that gives unconditional election its grounding. (Various Scriptures)

Confessions of a Militant Reformed Credo-Baptist gone Paedo-baptist

I had plethora of subconscious baptistic assumptions that I would always bring to the text of scripture without question. When you are always starting with a Baptist assumption you will always come with baptistic conclusions. I needed to simply read the text at face value and let new assumptions be created rather than always be operating out of assumptions. Our assumptions are often subconscious until we bring them to the surface and honestly face them. When we do not face and acknowledge our assumptions we remain bound by them.
