MK-Ultra & Compatibilism

Matchsticks and Unconditional Election

August 2nd, 2021

In Episode 108 I discuss a rather unfortunate comment made by Mark Driscoll several years ago about some of his hearers being matchsticks. I then examine writings of Martin Luther and John Calvin that could have contributed to Mark’s thought process. Finally, I discuss how the idea of unconditional election played a role in shaping the Puritans' views and treatment of Native Americans. You can hear Driscoll’s comment on human matchsticks on the podcast, The Rise and Fall of Mars Hill by Christianity Today.

Jacob, Esau & Election

March 1st, 2021

In Episode 97, I dig into the book of Romans to explore what Paul meant in Romans 9:13, “Jacob I have loved, Esau I have hated.” Was Paul teaching us the doctrine of Unconditional Election, or did he have something completely different in mind?

TULIP vs. The Early Christians Pt.3

February 2nd, 2021

Episode 95, is part three of a three-part series on how the early Christians would respond to the five points of Calvinism known by the acronym TULIP.

To define each of the five points, I use long citations from both John Calvin’s own writings and John Piper’s book Five Points. Links to both are in the shown notes.
