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
