Welcome to the Plodcast! Today Pastor Wilson address’ Authority in preaching, claiming that many modern preachers are coiling away from their authority in the pulpit. Next he plods on to review “The Magician’s Twin” and finishes things off with a look at Hamartia in James. Happy Plodding!

Show Notes:


Authority in Preaching:

  • When a man is in the pulpit, he is not there as a representative of himself but of God
  • He is speaking for God
  • Many modern preachers coil away from this
  • When modern preachers talk about themselves on stage we think they are humble
  • But when preachers preach as though they themselves are irrelevant we think they are proud


The Magician’s Twin:

  • About C.S. Lewis’ view of science and scientism
  • A number of Lewis scholars wrote many essays for this
  • These essays are showing how Lewis’ prophetic insights decades before are extremely relevant today
  • All the essays are superb
  • Lewis is too often thought of as an avuncular storyteller but should actually be thought of as a fiery prophet



  • Looking at hamartia in James
  • Used 6 times: James 1:15 (2x), 2:9, 4:17, 5:15, 5:20
