Welcome to the Plodcast! Listen in to hear Pastor Wilson talk about the higher education crisis, emphasizing that an educational reformation in America is not going to happen until Christian parents stop feeding the beast. After that he plods on to review Ambrose Bierce’s “The Devil’s Dictionary”. Finally Wilson takes a look at Hamartia in Colossians. Happy Plods!

Show Notes:

 

Higher Ed. Crisis:

  • We are in the middle of a higher education bubble that is soon going to be followed by a crash
  • Conservative Christian parents have thought much more about their children’s college than their grade-school
  • College is seen as too much of a savior is not worth all the money that many colleges are offering
  • Education is not our savior
  • An educational reformation in America is not going to happen until Christian parents stop feeding the beast

 

The Devil’s Dictionary:

  • Written by Ambrose Bierce
  • Although he is not a Christian, he knows how to float like a butterfly and sting like a bee
  • This is a satiric dictionary that will greatly help your writing
  • You should read dictionaries

 

Hamartia

  • Looking at the word in Colossians
  • Hamartia is found in Colossians 1:14, 2:11, 2:12
  • Spiritual baptism and physical baptism are related
  • Spiritual circumcision and physical baptism are related
  • What then holds us back from saying that there is a connection with physical circumcision and physical baptism
