For The King with Rocky Ramsey

Hosted ByRocky Ramsey

The For The King Podcast exists to aid the Christian in applying the Christian worldview to whatever random thing you might encounter in God's creation.

Unconditional Election (TULIP part 2)

“At the very announcement of the text some will be ready to say, ‘Why preach upon so profound a doctrine as election?’ I answer, because it is in God’s word, and whatever is in the Word of God is to be preached.”

“I believe the doctrine of election, because I am quite certain that, if God had not chosen me, I should never have chosen Him; and I am sure He chose me before I was born, or else He never would have chosen me afterwards; and He must have elected me for reasons unknown to me, for I never could find in myself why He should have looked upon me with special love. So I am forced to accept that great Biblical doctrine.”

“Whatever may be said about the doctrine of election, it is written in the Word of God as with an iron pen, and there is no getting rid of it. To me, it is one of the sweetest and most blessed truths in the whole of revelation, and those who are afraid of it are so because they do not understand it. If they could but know that the Lord had chosen them, it would make their hearts dance for joy.”

– Charles Haddon Spurgeon

My guest joining me this week on the Sunday series is my brother Bryce. Bryce is getting his undergraduate degree in philosophy and hopes to get his MDiv. from a seminary after he completes his undergrad. He hopes to be a pastor shepherding Gods people one day.
