Tune in to hear Pastor Wilson talk about disturbing algorithms. Then he plugs Witness, and wraps things up with a talk about the Greek word “Akataschetos”. Happy Plodding! 

Show Notes:

Disturbing Algorithms

  • they have developed the technology that puts the faces of celebrities onto pornagraphic images in a full time realistic way
  • this is the world we are living in
  • we ought to get to the point where we no longer admit digital evidence into the court of law
  • we now have the capacity where we could generate footage of someone robbing a bank
  • evidence can be manufactured
  • people who are not technologically sophisticated are at the mercy of people who are
  • we need to go back to the standard of having two or three witnesses
  • we are getting to the point where digital evidence can be easily abused

Witness

  • written by Whitaker Chambers
  • he was a communist spy and worked together with Alger Hiss
  • Chambers was converted
  • he wound up making the accusation against Alger Hiss
  • this book is Chamber’s account of his life and conversion
  • liberals wanted to maintain that Hiss was framed, but he actually was a spy

Akataschetos

  • when something is unruly it is untamed, uncowed, undisciplined
  • the NT uses this word for the tongue, which no one can tame
  • an unruly evil, full of deadly poison
  • we must keep our guard up, we have a cobra in our mouth
  • if a man can tame the tongue he can tame anything
