Show Notes:

A Theory About Trump

  • every Christian with an ounce of spiritual discernment, sees that Trump is petty and manipulative in his personal interactions
  • Trump wants to troll the swamp before he drains it
  • if you don’t watch any of the news or follow him on twitter, and just look at his track record, we would be hard pressed to remember a time when so much has been done for conservatives
  • why is all this good stuff happening with Trump of all people as president
  • I believe that God is being very kind to us
  • one could argue that God is doing it in this way so that nobody could boast about it

The Unseen Realm

  • written by Michael Heiser
  • an introduction to the whole idea of the council of the gods and the ancient cosmology
  • he goes into the text and shows what the Bible is actually talking about when it alludes to the ancient cosmology
  • you will have a lot better understanding of what’s running in the background cosmologically when you are reading through the Bible
  • one chapter is an amateur treatment of Calvinism, everything besides that chapter is amazing

Akathartos

  • mostly used to describe the unclean spirits that Jesus would cast out (Matt. 10:1, Mk. 1:23, Luke 4:33 and many others)
  • but in the book of Acts it is used to describe the unclean animals that were shown to Peter as emblematic of the Gentiles
  • it’s clear that this is describing moral uncleanness, we should not eliminate the consideration of physical filth
  • people who live in absolute physical squalor and filth have a serious spiritual problem as well
