Great Sermon! I found it interesting in #6 to hear synergism expressed. Calvinists typically deny any sense of it, and hold to monergism instead.
This was quite unexpected coming the Reformed camp, unless I misunderstand the Reformed position, or perhaps the speaker represents a less extreme form of Calvinism then I typically encounter?
Personally, I am an Arminian who accepts New Covenant Theology along with a Historic Premillennial Eschatology. Synergism is of course part and parcel of my view.
I wonder how many others approach NCT from this angle and where they can be found. In other words, to what extent NCT has crossed over into the Arminian camp.
I'm curious - does anyone have some links or insights along these lines?
Thank you Thank you, for this sermon. I must confess, I do not agree with its basic premise. That the Christian life entails work, labor, and striving seems clear from Scripture. Furthermore, to put Christ against Moses, seems unsafe. Remember, Moses was only a servant and his law was God's law. Finally, Reformed believers, agree we can only be sanctified by faith. We are justified and sanctified ONLY by faith. How else can we be sanctified but by faith. After all is said and done, I still believe the older Reformed, Protestant, and Puritan view best accords with Scripture. May God cause His face to shine upon you and yours.
An excellent exposition of NTC ! I am so happy to hear something on this subject. I am very saddened that NCT pastors sit quietly by while the Dispensational churches overrun the people with their lies. I believe that DT is a Hermeneutical error which will put them in the Heresy group and should be addressed very seriously.
