Negan’s Choice: Season 6 Finale

“And this shall be the plague with which the Lord will strike all the peoples that wage war against Jerusalem: their flesh will rot while they are still standing on their feet, their eyes will rot in their sockets, and their tongues will rot in their mouths.” Zechariah 14:12

Today’s show is dedicated to the simple question of “Who does Negan choose?” during the final moments of the Season 6 Finale.

This is a spoiler-light episode. You will know that certain people survive until the end of Season 6. That may take a little bit of the tension off of the previous episodes, but it’s not a big deal.

  • Results of the poll
  • What the cast and crew have said
  • Wild speculation about Negan’s choice.
  • Definitive proof from the Bible of a zombie apocalypse

The Doctrines of Grace – Is Grace Resistible?

In this episode we continue out look at the Reformed Doctrines of Grace, also known as Calvinism. We have been working our way through the Russian Nesting Dolls and have now gotten to the question of how God applies the atonement of Christ to his elect people. Can people by the working of their own free will reject the gospel call of God when he has elected and atoned for them? Of does the work of the Spirit happen in a way that cannot be repelled?

That is the question for this episode of The Freed Thinker Podcast!

The Doctrines of Grace – Limited Atonement

Did Jesus die to atone for all the sins of all people? All the sins of some people? Some of the sins of some people?

What was the extent of the atonement of Christ? Should we be universalists? These are some of the questions that lead to many of our most heated discussions as Christians with Arminians calling Calvinists evil and cruel and demonic and Calvinists calling Arminians/Molinists heretics and Pelagians.

This is the topic of this episode of the Freed Thinker Podcast as we continue our series on the Reformed Doctrines of Grace, better known as Calvinism.
