Welcome to the Plodcast! Listen in to hear Pastor Wilson talk about personality tests, claiming that it is our faith in numbers that is driving our faith in personality tests. After that he plods on to review Thomas Sowell's book, “Discrimination and Disparities”. Finally Wilson takes a look at Hamartia and Hamartano  in 1 & 2 Timothy. Happy Plodding!

Personality Testing:

  • Anyone who has eyes knows that there are different personalities
  • You are dealing with Pooh, Piglet, Tigger, and Eeyore
  • We live in a technocratic age. We think we can reduce things to numbers
  • Faith in numbers, transfers to the corporate world
  • We think that we can actually put a number on people down to the exact degree
  • Our faith in numbers is driving our faith in personality tests

 

Discrimination & Disparities

  • Written by Thomas Sowell
  • Sowell is an economist and a black man, and he is fearless when it comes to analyzing economic proposals
  • The whole book is on how it is possible for you to have wildly variant outcomes with different groups and not have it be the result of discrimination

 

Hamartano & Hamartia:

  • Looking at Hamartano in 1 Timothy
  • It is used just once: (1 Tim. 5:20)
  • Looking at Hamartia in 1 & 2 Timothy
  • It is used in: (1 Tim. 5:22/5:24, 2 Tim. 3:6)
