On today's program, I discussed the recent joint statement of the ACNA, LCMS, and LCC which resulted from five years of ongoing theological dialogue. I discussed the similarities between Lutheranism and Anglicanism as well as the various ways in which these two traditions differ.

On today's program, I went back to an old series of podcasts I was doing on the ordo salutis, and discussed the doctrine of illumination. The topics and content were different than those of the recent Jacobs's study podcast on the same topic.

On today's program I discussed the doctrine of divine simplicity and the attributes of God. This led to a number of topics surrounding the doctrine of God, including the eternal generation of Christ, contemporary challenges to classical Theism, and many other important issues.

On today's program I discussed the nature of human free will in its fourfold state. I spent the majority of the program discussing the nature of free will prior to the fall, and the various definitions of free will that have been explained by different theologians. I also talked about the difference between the regenerate and unregenerate will, and the question of the impeccability of Christ.

On today's program, I was joined again by Rev. Lewis Polzin to continue our discussion of Henry Eyster Jacobs' book A Summary of the Christian Faith. We continued our overview of the ordo salutis as we discussed Jacobs' chapter on illumination. This led to a number of different topics including: apologetics, the relationship between faith and reason, and the knowledge of the unbeliever.
