Daily Roundup for January 19, 2018

Here are the items and resources of interest for January 19, 2018:

NEW FEATURE: Each weekday I will be asking a simple question related to theology or technology.  Feel free to post an answer in the comments section (Facebook or the site itself). There will also be an article or two related to the question. 

Today’s Question: Do you think children should be examined by the elders before coming to the Lord’s Table? Why? Defend your answer. 

 

Theology/Christianity:

 

 

Technology:

  • I strongly recommend two-factor authenticationThis article will tell you how
  • The iOS slowdown will be fixed with the next iOS update
  • Technology Tip: NOTE: Each Friday I will offer some “tech tips” on various topics.  This week: Using Pocket.  Pocket is a great tool to have around.  There are many good articles on the internet, and the big challenge is what to do with all of this information. My practice is to use Pocket whenever I find something worth keeping. Pocket is free (there is also a premium version).  Once you sign up, you can begin collecting articles, etc. As you save them, I suggest you tag them so you can find them later.

Daily Roundup for January 17, 2018

Here are the items and resources of interest for January 17, 2018:



Theology/Christianity:

  • I have been blessed by the ministry of Alistair Begg and the Truth for Life program. Specifically, the series “The Pastor’s Study” has been one that has greatly encouraged me.  There are seven volumes in this series. I often listen to these sermons while on my morning and afternoon walk. I commend them to you. You can also get the mobile app for your phone here.
  • On the note of other podcasts, here is a short list of some that I commend to you: The Briefing (Mohler), Christ the Center (Reformed Forum); Confessing Our Hope (Greenville Seminary); Mortification of Spin (Normally these are excellent; Alliance of Confessing Evangelicals). These are typically in my regular rotation when I can find time to listen. My wife loves MOS. 
  • Does podcasting hurt preaching? Read this article and decide for yourself. I know, you may be thinking, “Wow, Bill, you just recommended some podcasts and now you are asking us to read this article.” Well, yes. Indeed. I have often argued that podcasting, the consequences of such that typically produces men who we prefer to listen to, is detrimental to the average member of the church. Read on. 
  • I am late to the game.  R.C. Sproul impacted me in a way that words simply cannot express or measure. Perhaps that is another article for another time.

Daily Roundup for January 16, 2018

Here are the items and resources of interest for January 16, 2018:



Theology/Christianity:

  • A Catechism on the Heart — This is excellent.  Written by Sinclair Ferguson. 
  • The subject of church discipline is one that I have found, in my short experience as a pastor, is woefully misunderstood. Mark Dever writes on the subject.  Do you agree with him or disagree?  Perhaps a discussion on the merits of this article is in order. 
  • I struggle with sleep.  As a pastor circumstances and issues related to my charge sometimes keep me awake. Sometimes it is due to my health issues. Whatever the reason, it is a fact that sleep is very needful. Brian Croft writes on this subject.
  •  Four Reasons God is Not Answering Your Prayers — There are some weaknesses to this article, but overall it is good. Written by David Qaoud.
