Daily Roundup for January 31, 2018

Here are the items and resources of interest for January 31, 2018:


Theology/Christianity:

  • Four Reasons to Sing When Your Soul is Troubled — I have noticed a change in disposition and attitude when I sing. This article is helpful. Written by Jordan Standridge.
  • I suspect many Christians pray the Lord’s Prayer in worship each week.  MY question: Do they know what they are saying or are they just going through the motions. Al Mohler offers help in this area
  • Everyone has struggled with the exact meaning of “turning the other cheek.” What does that mean? Does it mean we need to allow others to walk all over us? This article helps answer the question. Written by Chris Nye.
  • EDITORIAL: This article (and others) are getting a ton of attention on social media. A Ruling Elder in a PCA church in the Houston area is running for governor.  The problem centers on the apparent contradiction between his political views and his ecclesiastical vows. 
  • Take a look at The Christian Daily Reporter.
  • In my opinion, this is the best conference of the year. I pencil it into my calendar every year and enjoy it each time. The preaching, fellowship, and schedule that does not have me feeling like I got hit by a train are some of the reasons I enjoy it. If you are a Ruling or Teaching Elder, I strongly encourage you to attend. You will not be disappointed
  • Good advice is offered to pastors from Dr. Ben Shaw, professor of Old Testament at Greenville Presbyterian Theological Seminary.

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.
