Daily Roundup for December 4, 2017

 

UPDATE: I have not been very faithful in getting these resources out to my readers. As a pastor, I have much on my plate. However, I am endeavoring to do better in the future. I do not know the benefit that these resources are bringing to my readers.  I would appreciate a few comments (and/or suggestions) if they are helpful to you.

Here are the items and resources of interest for December 4, 2017:



Theology/Christianity:

  • Upcoming Puritan MovieDr. Joel Beeke of Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary has announced an upcoming released of Reformation Heritage Books. 
  • Tim Challies has released a video (with a transcript) on “Seven Marks of a False Teacher.”  In this day and age the church of the Lord Jesus Christ is plagued with many who are merely wolves in sheep’s clothing. We must be discerning and we must be on constant guard against those who would lead us astray. 
  • The issue of intinction is no plaguing many churches. The Presbyterian Church in America, the denomination in which I am an ordained minister, is not without this problem.  It is biblically wrong.  It is a violation of the vows ministers take when they commit to the Westminster Standards. Joe Thorn writes on this very subject
  • As a pastor, I wrestle with this question often. One one hand I value my wife’s input as well as being able to simply “get things off my chest.”  On the other hand, there are things I cannot tell her. This article is helpful. Written by Dave Harvey.

  • A friend on Facebook shared this lecture series.  The topic is often neglected and needs to be often revisited. Lectures by Dr. Nick Willborn
  • I love church history, and I am usually reading at least one book on the subject. This article will give you some motivation as to the reasons you should be reading it as well. Written by Psyche Ives
  • The church I pastor is now on SermonAudio for those interested in my sermons. In a few days, they will also be available here on The Parchment
  • Preaching and PrayingMark Johnston is helpful on this subject as it pertains to Gospel progress. 

Technology:

  • I use Google Photos exclusively. In my opinion, it is the best way to store your photos because it does not tie up space on your phone.  Once the photo is uploaded to the server, you can safely dump it from your device. PC Mag has 25 tricks and tips for you to use if you are using it. 
  • I am not a fan of anything Apple.  Most of my friends know that already. Therefore, I encourage you to switch to Android. Here is how
  • Which one is better? Netflix or Hulu? PC Mag helps you decide.
