Class 3/29: Quiz prep, Rats and Garbage, Group Work

Not everything went according to plan, with all the tech troubles.  Thanks to St Alfred for working hard on it.

SOO..bottom line.
We will have a very brief quiz Thurs in addition to our guest (s) presentation.
Two questions:

1)Based on the Prodigal Son exercise we did in class today (If you missed class read below),  tell whether your answer in class (or online below) was accurately predicted by the Richards/O'Brien experiment.

2)These are actually "re-run"  questions from the last quiz, so you already know the answers.  We just wanted to impress our speaker that we put both his statements on a  quiz(:

a)Russ Willingham: "According to the Bible, the pastor our leader needs to watch over their __________."  ((help))
b)a)Russ Willingham:   "The leader's greatest strength is being publicly _________." ((help))

So if you missed class, to answer question one, simply read the story of the Prodigal Son,starting  at Luke 15:14.  Then  re-tell the story to someone else (Or yourself).  AFTER you have done that click here and read pages 14-15 to see if the prediction was accurate (Did you do what most Americans do?)

From the same book..the fanny story  is


--We talked about what

^actual photo of two rats found in Sattler 101^
 Charles Kraft calls the"garbage and rats" Scriptures:

We left a pile of garbage in the room, and asked
what would happen if it were left there overnight:

it would invite rats.

Certain attitudes/behaviors/ethical responses seem to be the equivalent of  "garbage," with invites/incites demonic entities to piggyback on them.  Here are some we looked at.

          GARBAGE:                    RATS:         CLICK EACH SCRIPTURE:
(we discussed the first three)

  • unresolved anger          devil given a foothold           (Ephesians 4:26-27)
  • no marital relations        Satan tempts                            (1 Corinthians 7: 4-5)
  • unforgiveness                Satan comes in                         (2 Corinthians 2:10-11)
  • human thinking              "Get behind me, Satan!"          (Matthew  16:23-24)
  • human thinking                becomes demonic and evil     (James 3:16-17)
  • love of money                   a root of many kinds of evil    (1 Tim 6:10)
