Welcome to the Plodcast! Listen in to hear Pastor Doug address the rise of dirty omniscience. Then he goes on to plug the book, Approved By God, by Wright & Townsend. Finishing things off with a look at the Greek words “hamartano & hamartia”. Happy Plodding!

Show Notes:


Dirty Omniscience:

  • Google & Facebook are virtually tracking everything we do
  • This is going to go badly wrong
  • Our browser history is stored somewhere
  • We already know God knows, but now somebody else knows, and they are not loving and caring like the Lord
  • People who want to rival God are in big trouble
  • Christians should throw shade on this dirty omniscience


Approved By God:

  • Written by Wright & Townsend
  • Helpful but patchy
  • Deals with the subject of churches and incorporation
  • We shouldn’t want the church saying one thing while the state is saying something else
  • A corporation exists at the pleasure of the state
  • Wright & Townsend are so concerned with separation from the state that they overstate their case


Hamartano & Hamartia:

  • This word is used a lot in the NT, we will have to break it up
  • Starting with Matthew, Hamartano is rendered twice as sin and once as trespass
  • (Matthew 18:21/27:4/18:15/1:21/3:6/9:2/9:5-6/12:31/26:28)
  • The new covenant is all about dealing with our sin
  • Those who reject the idea of sin (as all relativists do) are showing their antipathy for the good news that God has given to us.
