Show Notes

Equality of Outcome:

  • We all think that equality is a good thing, but we need to look at the context of the equality
  • Conservatives want equality of opportunity, while Progressive’s want equality of outcome
  • Conservatives want equality in the rules, while Progressives want equality of the scoreboard
  • In order to keep everything perfectly equal, you would have to be God

Holiness:

  • Written by J.C. Ryle
  • Ryle is a master of clarity, and is a very straight forward writer
  • In this book he presents the classic reformed understanding of sanctification
  • Ryle shows what it is to grow in holiness and is an enormous help to Christians who want to be holy in God’s sight

Apalgeo:

  • Means to be past feeling
  • Only used once in the New Testament: Ephesians 4:19-20
  • This refers to one whose conscience is seared, whose moral sensibilities have been deadened
  • Guilt is a gift from God, without it we would destroy ourselves
