Federalist 58 by James Madison. 1. Under the proposed Constitution whose interests were represented by the U.S. Senate? Is it so today? If not, how might it be remedied & by what means? 2. How did the Constitution provide for updating representation in Congress? 3. Madison credits the U.S Constitution with assigning the greatest power, that of the “purse strings” to the U.S. House. In your opinion, how might the House assert that power to reduce the size & cost of government today? 4. Explain in your own words Madison’s warning against too many men serving in the House. How might his warning be applied today as calls abound for a more direct democracy & for scrapping the electoral college system? 5. Is democracy the form of government our Founders gave us or was it a republican form? Explain the difference.

How Then Can I Do This Great Wickedness, And Sin Against God

Old World Witness For Christ

Some time after Joseph became an overseer in Potiphar’s household, Joseph was repeatedly approached by Potiphar’s wife to commit adultery with her. It is instructive to note Joseph’s response as follows:

There is none greater in this house than I; neither hath he kept back any thing from me but thee, because thou art his wife: how then can I do this great wickedness, and sin against God?

Shouldn’t we resolve now, through personal commitment, prayer and meditation, that if this temptation ever comes along in our lives that we will respond the same as Joseph did and not sin against God?
