Episode 179: Why don’t we cast lots anymore?

Episode Highlights:

  • Casting lots was an OT and early NT method for discerning the will of God, similar to rolling dice. It was regarded as communication from God. Exo 28:30; Lev 16:8-10; Num 26:55-56; Acts 1:26
  • The confidence in the method was based upon the conviction that God is in control of all things, even the “roll of the dice.” Prov 16:33
  • We don’t cast lots post-Pentecost because direction in non-moral decisions – when direction comes – comes from the indwelling Holy Spirit. Acts 8:29ff; 9:10ff; 10:19ff; 16:6,7,9-10; 20:22
