Effectual Calling (Ebenezer Pemberton)
What is the effectual calling of the Lord to a rebellious soul? What makes it different than the normal conviction someone feels when listening to a sermon or reading Scripture? While the term may be unfamiliar in today's culture, its reality has been experienced by every true Christian.

Elders and Deacons, Part II
Chuck and Teddy conclude their discussion on the qualifications of elders and deacons in this week's episode. While there are specifics edicts, the principle behind each of them is that an elder and deacons must be a man "above reproach."

Regeneration (Jonathan Dickinson)
Richard Owen Roberts says regeneration is one of the most important doctrines American Evangelicalism must reexamine. That is a bold statement, but it bears much truth. This week's sermon by Jonathan Dickinson, "The Nature and Necessity of Regeneration" is a prime example of how much understanding we lack when it comes to this doctrine.

The Atonement (Solomon Stoddard)
When it comes to the atonement of Christ's death, we are again presented with the importance of grasping the bigness of God, our sin, and His love. But what is the atonement and how can the death of one man atone for all the sins of every Christian in history? These are weighty questions deserving of a weighty conversation. For help in this, John and Chuck are looking to a sermon from Solomon Stoddard in the book Salvation in Full Color.

Finishing Well (Joel Tiegreen)
A few months ago we recorded a special episode with our friend Joel Tiegreen. Joel served as a missionary to the country of Turkey for five years. While there he was diagnosed with cancer. In the discussion, we asked how we could pray for Joel and he asked that we pray he would finish his race well. On Tuesday, April 13, Joel finished his race well. We wanted to present this discussion to you again to hear again Joel's descriptions of the faithfulness of our Lord and the kindness He poured out upon Joel in the midst of great pain and suffering. Continue praying for Joel's wife, Emily, and their family as they grieve and mourn a tremendous loss.

Divine Love (John Witherspoon)
"God loves you." That statement, divorced of the knowledge of the character of God or depth of man's depravity, is empty. But after spending time learning who God is and seeing Him as He presents Himself in Scripture, and contrasting His pure holiness to our rebellion and wickedness, it has an indescribably deep beauty. Why does God love us? For how long will God love us? What can make God stop loving us? All of these are discussed in this week's sermon by John Witherspoon.

Benefits and Dangers of Reading Old Writers (With Jeremy Walker)
Anyone who has been around The Whole Counsel long enough will know we love reading from the old writers and preachers. We believe there are incredible benefits to reading from men and women who were particularly gifted by God to speak truth into their times. But as much as we love reading them, we are aware there are ditches we can easily fall into. To help discuss these benefits and dangers, Jeremy Walker, host of A Word in Season and From the Heart of Spurgeon podcasts, joins John via video call.

Dead Works (Theodorus Jacobus Frelinghuysen)
Salvation is no easy feat for man. In fact, it is impossible for man to save himself. It is a work only God can do. But that begs the question, why. Why is it so hard for man to be saved? Why is it impossible for man to save himself? John and Chuck dissect the sermon The Righteous are Scarcely Saved by Theodorus Jacobus Frelinghuysen in this week's The Whole Counsel Podcast. You can find the text of the sermon, more episodes, and likeminded podcasts at www.mediagratiae.org/podcasts.

The Heinousness of Sin (Joseph Bellamy)
Why does sin bother the Christian? It is because God gives His children an understanding of the ugliness of sin that an unbeliever simply cannot grasp. David's prayer, "Against you and you only have I sinned." is incomprehensible to one who does not understand sin. Presenting a biblical picture of sin is the point of Joseph Bellamy's sermon that John and Chuck are discussing in this week's podcast episode.

Total Depravity (Gilbert Tennent)
Few doctrines have been so misunderstood and abused than that of total depravity. However, it is an important truth we must wrestle with in our pursuit of seeing salvation in full color. In this week's episode, John Snyder and Chuck Baggett highlight a sermon preached by Gilbert Tennent titled "The Wretched State of the Unconverted."

The Law of God (Samuel Hopkins)
In this week's episode, John and Chuck discuss a sermon preached by Samuel Hopkins on the Law of God. The Law of God is an expression of God's character. It is perfect, infinite, authoritative, and beautiful to the believer. It is hated, despised, and ugly to the unbeliever. Hopkins give help to how we should understand and apply God's law to our New Testament stance with God and seven questions we should ask ourselves to see if we are right with God or if we simply have religion.
