More Episodes

In this episode we will begin discussing the very important (and controversial) topic of falling away or Christian apostasy. We will begin by discussing the recent public denial of the faith by the popular author Joshua Harris. We will then discuss how a Christian should respond to another believer falling away from the faith. What is a helpful response? What is an unhelpful response? We will then briefly discuss some verses that deal with the issue (there are a lot). We then spend the rest of the episode discussing the teaching of Arminius on apostasy and use "Jacob Arminius: Theologian of Grace" by Keith Stanglin and Thomas McCall as a guide. Arminius did believe that a true believer can fall away but how does one fall away? Is it only a complete renunciation of the faith or is it possible to grievously sin and fall away? Listen to find out. We will continue next episode and focus on the teaching of John Wesley on apostasy so stay tuned.
