One of my supporters has very kindly transcribed this video on the teaching of Romans 8-11 concerning election. I don’t have time to transcribe my videos myself, so anyone willing to volunteer to transcribe videos would be greatly appreciated! The transcript is very lightly edited at a few points for the purpose of comprehension.
What is your position on predestination? In particular, how should we understand predestination in Romans 8-11 with its many OT references?
Trying to understand Ephesians 1 and was wondering if you could help. Paul seems to be addressing the visible/historical church in Ephesus. If my assumption is right then he is saying that the people in the visible church of Ephesus are predestined to adoption as sons, have redemption through Christ’s blood, have been gifted with every spiritual blessing, etc. My trouble is that as a Calvinist I don’t know how to make sense of the fact that he calls all of that visible church elect? Could you help me work through this important passage?
