Election in View of Headship



aka Eschatologuy

God acts in time via means. When it comes to faith, He acts through the Means of Grace. When it comes to Election, He acts through headship — fathers, grandfathers, chiefs, kings, tribes, nations. God does not act arbitrarily, and this is no less true of His actions in time than it is of His actions in eternity. Fairness plays no role in the matter, for fairness is not a thing.

Man is finite; God is infinite. There are doctrines that can be thoroughly understood, explored, and grasped, and there are doctrines that contain mystery — Election is a mystery. When it comes to the mysteries of the faith, we affirm the Word of God and then, with Paul, declare:

Oh, the depth of the riches and wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are His judgments and how inscrutable His ways!

  1. Another very helpful episode.

    One of the first video’s that broke me out of the Calvin vs Arminian dichotomy was this one by Wolfmueller, “Why are some saved and not others” – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pMiNjSsjM_w

    You guys take it to a whole other level though.

    These podcasts are the tip of a spear, you guys went way upstream; a lot of these topics will wash over the true church in the near future. You guys climbed up a tree and saw over the mountain of what was really going on in society and culture, how our enemies have caused so much confusion, what Biblical Theology looks like apart from the false communist worldview that’s been blended in our churches.

    May our Lord Jesus Christ continue to supply your wisdom, strength, and perseverance.
