071 Federal Headship

Federal Headship

For today's episode, I want to talk about one of the most important but least taught bits of theology and scripture, the Doctrine of Federal Headship which is the foundation of everything we believe, about sin, salvation, and our riches in Christ.

We look at the main idea of Federal Headship and go through several scriptures to develop this teaching. Lastly, we answer the question of whether or not this doctrine is fair.

This episode is great for anyone who wants their mind blown and their heart filled. Let's go bigger, better, and deeper!
