Episode 412: Took time to provide an account of the nature of the will, both human will and God’s will. Broke down an Edwardsian model of thew will: nature –> desire –> will. More on divine foreknowledge as it relates to God’s power in relation to the created order. Defined will as “the mind choosing,” which is Jonathan Edwards’ definition also. Then explored the question, “How do you know you believe in Christ?” Spoiler: it’s related to the will.
Episode 410: Any model of divine foreknowledge must flow consistently through Christ & the cross. In this episode, I unpack my critique of how Greg Boyd, from an open theist perspective, explains Acts 4.27-28 and argue in favor of God’s exhaustive providence, especially pertaining to the crucifixion of Christ. Then, we’ll take a peek at 1 Peter 1.20 to see further how God’s foreknowing of Christ, including his death & resurrection, informs divine foreordination.
Episode 409: After a brief review of the positions & how they would answer the question, “Did God know about COVID-19 before it existed?” I unpack where I land with my own answer. Plus, interaction with open theism on Acts 4.27-28.
