09: Generational Repentance

Jake and Matt are back to tackle the issue of generational repentance in light of a discussion that took place between Thabiti Anyabwile and Dr. James White. Should we repent of sins we didn’t commit? Is there a Biblical precedent for white guilt? Join us as we open up God’s word and ask some hard questions.

Passage of the day: 
“Now we have received not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might understand the things freely given us by God. And we impart this in words not taught by human wisdom but taught by the Spirit, interpreting spiritual truths to those who are spiritual. The natural person does not accept the things of the Spirit of God, for they are folly to him, and he is not able to understand them because they are spiritually discerned. The spiritual person judges all things, but is himself to be judged by no one. “For who has understood the mind of the Lord so as to instruct him?” But we have the mind of Christ.” (1 Corinthians 2:12-16, ESV).
