Listen to Pastor Wilson talk about Isreal and the Middle East. Then he plugs Russel Kirk’s book, The Conservative Mind, and wraps things up with a talk about the Greek word “Alusiteles”. Happy Plodding! 

 

 Show Notes:

 

Isreal & Middle East Conflict:

  • there has been endless Middle East conflict, and it is easy to push it to the side
  • however there are things that Christians need to pay attention to 
  • I am not an adherent of manifest destiny
  • you can’t unscramble the egg
  • we ought to recognize that Isreal has the right to occupy the space she currently has

 

The Conservative Mind:

  • written by Russel Kirk 
  • one of the values of conservative temperament is that it is not idealogical
  • the conservative is suspicious of systems
  • the conservative prefers the devil he knows to the devil he doesn’t know

 

Alusiteles:

  • The NT describes sins of omission in different ways
  • Heb. 13:17 - the saints are told to avoid making their rulers assigned task a grief
  • they are to be a joy to serve, not a grief 
  • when this is not done, the result is unprofitable (alusiteles) 
  • when worshipers find that their whole church experience is “unprofitable” for them, this is one of the possible reasons they should check
