Show notes:

 

The problem created by perfectionists/purists

  • God is perfect not a perfectionist
  • Purists are often the enemy for growth
  • Purists wanted to go back to the glories of Rome in the time of Augustine.
  • When you overreach you find yourself being the instrument of your beloved’s death

 

The Reformation in England

  • Written by Merle d'Aubigné
  • d'Aubigné is a 19th-century historian
  • A Christian historian ought not to tell dishonest inspirational “Christian” stories
  • Great homeschool resource!

 

Harmartema

  • Looking at the New Testament word harmartema
  • Mark 3:28, 4:12, Rom. 3:25, 1 Cor. 6:18
