In this episode we will continue to discuss the very important doctrine of Prevenient Grace. We will begin by sharing and discussing biblical support for the doctrine. There is actually a lot throughout the whole Bible. We will then talk about the subtle but very important differences between Semi-Augustinianism and Soft Semi-Augustinianism. We then end the episode talking about the implications of the doctrine of Prevenient Grace. How does it impact our philosophy of ministry? How will it impact how church services are conducted?
In this episode we will begin to discuss the very important doctrine of Prevenient Grace. This doctrine separates Wesleyan-Arminian theology from all forms of Pelagianism and Reformed theology. We will begin by defining Prevenient Grace with help from Thomas Oden. Then we will discuss an article by Andrew Dragos from Seedbed. We will talk about the benefits of Prevenient Grace as described by Wesley (via. Kenneth J. Collins) and find scriptural support for them. Then we will discuss the differences between the Wesleyan-Arminian Doctrine of Prevenient Grace and the Reformed Doctrine of Common Grace. What is the difference? Which one is better news for the sinner? We will then discuss whether Prevenient Grace or Irresistible Grace is more similar to our personal testimonies. We will continue this conversation in our next episode so stay tuned.
