In this podcast, Jim examines Christian “hypocrisy” and the proper definition of Biblical forgiveness as he reflects on his experience in Cold Case murder trials. How are we to respond when people claim that Christians are hypocrites? Are Christians called to forgive those who have victimized them, even when the offenders are unrepentant?

In this podcast, Jim examines the Calvinist TULIP paradigm and focuses on the notion of irresistible Grace. Does this theological concept eliminate human free will?
