dave sliker is a genius.

Doing my work assignment, transcribing for Dave Sliker…I’m blown away every Friday morning.  He’s talking about Ham, Shem, and Japheth and the continual insistence of Israel [ie, Shem] to try to be like the other nations.  He shows how that evolves in the minor prophets, and my ears perked up when he started talking about agriculture. 

Check this out:

“[Israel was] benefiting in an economic way with trade that divorced them from agriculture, that got them into prosperity and got them into trouble.  They are divorced from an agricultural dependence on God; they come into a trade system that blesses them financially.  They divorce themselves from God.  They become fully apostate.  And they become almost fully indistinguishable from the other nations.” 

 In other words, farming is godly.  I knew it.
