Lighthouse Trails have recently released ‘Calvinism: None Dare Call It Heresy’ by Bob Kirkland. On tonight’s programme we review the book and look at how serious the charges are, which were made by Bob Kirkland in his book. What does it tell us about the discernment of Lighthouse Trails?
On tonight’s programme we look at the covenant God made with Adam in the Garden of Eden and how it is different to the Covenant of Grace made with sinners after the fall of man. Is it important? We also briefly discuss how the New Perspective on Paul, Federal Vision and men like John Piper reject this. How could it affect your theology and your understanding of the gospel?
What is the doctrine of Sola Scriptura? What was the authority in the Garden of Eden? Why did written revelation become necessary in God’s economy? Why should we no longer expect oral revelation from God as the infant Church in the wilderness once did? On tonight’s programme we look at comments made by Francis Turretin, a 17th century reformer, on the issue of written revelation from God versus that of oral revelation. Can they help us understand this issue better? Are Charismatic claims of ‘prophetic words’ from men like Michael Brown consistent and compatible with sola scriptura?
On tonight’s show we review a sermon recommended by Lighthouse Trails which aims at refuting Calvinism. Does it succeed?
On tonight’s programme we have been joined by R. Scott Clark to discuss the modern justification controversy and its roots in history. R. Scott Clark has been a minister in the United Reformed Churches in North America since 1998, and he is Professor of Church History and Historical Theology at Westminster Seminary California. We discuss some of the roots of the controversy found in the Reformation, Richard Baxter, Norman Shepherd, the New Perspective on Paul, Federal Vision theology, Covenant theology, Covenant Nomism and other related issues.
