Show notes:

 

A recent court case involving female genital mutilation - a judge declared a federal law against it unconstitutional

  • His argument was that Congress didn’t have the right to outlaw a practice like this
  • Is secularism even possible?
  • There is a difference between female genital mutilation and circumcision.
  • Secularism is crippled and dismayed  

 

Sleuthing C.S. Lewis

  • Book by Kathryn Lindskoog
  • She wrote “The C.S. Lewis Hoax” in 1988
  • About Lindskoog’s accusations to Walter Hooper
  • Her charges are that Hooper forged some of Lewis’ work
  • She does quite a bit of gnat strangling in this book
  • A good controversy for people to be aware of

 

Harmartiology

  • The word for inexcusable is used twice in the New Testament
  • Romans 1:20, Romans 2:1
