Jul 4, 2018

Howdy! Listen in to hear Pastor Wilson talk about the American and French Revolutions, and the history behind them. He plods on to review Nassim Taleb’s book, “Skin in the Game” and finishes things off with a look at Hamartia in Romans. Happy Plods!

Show Notes:

 

American & French Revolutions:

  • We can’t have a biblical explanation of the War for Independence without properly seeing the context
  • The revolutionary era of the 18th century was kicked off by the French Rev. not the American War for Independence
  • Americans had every constitutional right to revolt

 

Skin in the Game:

  • Written by Nassim Nicholas Taleb
  • He argues that information doesn’t make you wise, having skin in the game makes you wise
  • A lot of the problems in the world are caused by people who do not have to face any consequences for being wrong
  • Taleb argues that risk is a really good thing
  • You want to live in such a way that when you make a wise choice you reap the benefit and vice versa

 

Hamaria:

  • Hamartia occurs 48 times in Romans
  • Found in Romans 3:9, 3:20, 4:7. 4:8, 5:12, 5:13, 5:20, 5:21, 6:1, 6:2, 6:6, 6:7, 6:10. 6:11, 6:12, 6:13, 6:14, 6;16, 6:17; 6:18, 6:20. 6:22, 6:23, 7:5, 7:7, 7:8, 7:9, 7:11, 7:13, 7:14, 7:17, 7:20, 7:23, 7;25, 8:2, 8:3, 8;10, 11;27, 14:23
