Idol Killer e5 - The Matter of Pharaoh's Heart
When considering the theological concept of God's Sovereignty from a Reformed / Calvinist view, the topic of God hardening Pharaoh's heart is often raised. After our recent episode on the sovereignty of God, requests came in asking that we address this specific instance in Scripture.
What does it mean when Scripture says God hardened Pharaoh's heart? Did God cause Pharaoh to rebel and sin? Did God make Pharaoh incapable of repentance? If Pharaoh was totally depraved and unregenerate why did God need to harden his heart? How does this instance in Scripture affect our understanding of the workings of God and His judgments?
We address these questions and more in this episode.
