Show Notes:

Jury Nullification:

  • Juries have authority over the law and not just over the person accused
  • Pastor Wilson was selected to be the foreman of a jury
  • If you have the opportunity to serve in a jury you should
  • You should also read up on jury nullification before you serve

C.S. Lewis On Politics and Natural Law:

  • Written by Justin Dyer and Micah Watson
  • C.S. Lewis claims to be bored by politics, but this book shows C.S. Lewis was a sophisticated political thinker
  • He is profoundly conservative in his outlook on politics, and is very much a classical liberalist
  • If you are interested in political theory, natural law, political science, and C.S. Lewis then this is your book

Anosios:

  • Rendered as unholy
  • Used in 1 Tim. 1:9, 2 Tim. 3:2
  • Too many Christians see holiness in terms of a seraphic countenance and an implied halo, and thusly see unholiness as the mere absence of that -- a state of being ordinary
  • But as Paul uses unholy here, it means polluted and defiled
