Tune in to hear Pastor Wilson talk about Abolitionism and the art of the deal. Then he plugs The Reformed Doctrine of Predestination, and ties things off with a talk about the Greek word “Alisgema”. Happy Plodding! 

Show Notes:

Abolitionism & The Art of the Deal:

  • How can we draw a lesson from the left when it comes from political engagement on the pro-life issue
  • one of the things the left does very well is that they don’t apologize for the activists on the extreme edges of their movement
  • if someone fighting for the same cause is doing something that is ill advised, it is really important for incrementalists to not apologize for the abolitionists
  • don’t spend your time fighting the abolitionists, spend your time fighting the pro abortionists 

The Reformed Doctrine of Predestination:

  • written by Loraine Boettner
  • has a lot of wonderful textual citations in the Bible that show how God governs everything
  • if anyone is interested in a good introduction to the reformed doctrine of predestination it is a wonderful book

Alisgema:

  • this is the word for pollution, and is used once (Acts 15:20)
  • the Gentiles needed to abstain from certain basic things, among them the pollutions of idols
  • the end result of all forms of idolatry is always pollution, usually sexual
  • we need to be wary of nature worship, (going green)
