About this Episode

On this episode of Faith Unaltered we invited Tyler Vela (The Freed Thinker Podcast) and Colton Carlson talk Calvinism, Determinism & Comptibilism and Moral Responsibility!

On part 1 of this episode the crew dives into definitions of Compatiblilsm, Regulative and Guidance Control and Source-hood as well as hear examples given by Colton and Tyler V. concerning Frankfurt Style Case/Arguments, listen while the two elaborate on Regulative and Guidance Control, Moderate Reasons Responsiveness and how the Sensus Divinitatas (Sense of the Divine) plays a part in how we participate with Guidance Control.

After that we ask why exactly Tyler and Colton prefer Compatiblism over Incompatiblism. During this segment we dive into Sciptural evidence, how Determining Grace, Divine Foreknowledge and Monergism have an impact, as well as here arguments for why Folk intuition of Libertarianism is false.

We wrap up part 1 before Tyler V. has to leave with the question of how God's decree actually plays out in reality and discuss the hardening of Pharaoh’s heart and the difference between God knowledge regarding logical and metaphysical possibility.
