Episode 425: Why is it that some people believe but others do not? I pick up Wilbur Smith’s chapter “Some Reasons for the Unbelief of Men and Their Antagonism Toward God” from Therefore Stand, a prescient chapter which could have been written yesterday though it was written 80 years ago. Then, we discuss the theological reasons people do not believe based on Jesus’ words in John 10, esp. vs. 25-26.

Episode 423: Why is it that some people believe but others do not? I take a look at Wilbur M. Smith’s chapter “Some Reasons for the Unbelief of Men and Their Antagonism to God” from Therefore Stand which, while written nearly 80 years ago may as well have been written yesterday, outlines several causes of unbelief. Of his fifteen causes I look at six before, during the back half of the program, launching into Jesus’ explanation of unbelief from John 8.31-47, especially verse 46-47.
