This post considers the 7th Circuit’s July 15, 2010 decision in Medmarc Casualty Insurance Company v. Avent America, Inc., which can be found here. But first a word or two about the title. The phrase “A Whim and a Prayer” is actually a mangled version of “A Wing and a Prayer” which is from a popular 1943 song about a shot-up pilot that limps back to base, according to Professor Paul Brian’s entertaining and insightful Common Errors in English Usage, a link to which appears here. As Professor Brian correctly notes, “whim” and “prayer” don’t belong together. And indeed that is one of the messages of the Court’s opinion in Medmarc.
FALSE CONVERSION– The Sower went out to sow the seed of the gospel. It fell on four types of ground. The first seed fell by the wayside and was trampled under foot or devoured by the birds. These are those who reject the gospel outright and not our immediate concern. Lastly it fell among well tilled soil which represents a heart prepared by the regenerating work of the Holy Spirit. Again, this is not the subject of this 2 part video.We will deal with two types of spurious “faith” that is only temporary in duration and the reasons this is so in each case: 1.The seeds that fell on rocky soil and had no root. They sprang up quickly. This is the group oi false converts in this the 1st part and… 2. The seeds that fell among thorns and were choked out. This is coming up in the 2nd part Let us all look to our own hearts and see if we are truly in the faith or tares amongst the wheat.
