Show Notes:

Authority in Preaching:

  • When a man is in the pulpit, he is not there as a representative of himself but of God
  • He is speaking for God
  • Many modern preachers coil away from this
  • When modern preachers talk about themselves on stage we think they are humble
  • But when preachers preach as though they themselves are irrelevant we think they are proud

The Magician’s Twin:

  • About C.S. Lewis’ view of science and scientism
  • A number of Lewis scholars wrote many essays for this
  • These essays are showing how Lewis’ prophetic insights decades before are extremely relevant today
  • All the essays are superb
  • Lewis is too often thought of as an avuncular storyteller but should actually be thought of as a fiery prophet

Hamartia:

  • Looking at hamartia in James
  • Used 6 times: James 1:15 (2x), 2:9, 4:17, 5:15, 5:20
