On today's podcast, I continued my discussion of the ordo salutis. I addressed the call, especially in relation to the Reformed view of the effectual call. I discussed the nature of God's call, the means of the call, and the distinctions within the doctrine of the call. I spent a large part of the program demonstrating that God's call is both universal and resistable.

On today's program, I played a lecture from Rev. Dave Spotts of Wittenberg Door Ministries in Columbia, MO. In this presentation pastor Spotts makes a case for judging our faith and practice against Scripture. This use of Scripture as our authority in judging the history of the Christian faith is central to living an authentic, Reformational life in Christ.
