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.

  • Many iPhone users enjoy the freedom of Facetime. However, due to the nature of that app, it will only work for iPhone users. Google Duo is different. It works “cross platform.”  That is, an Android user can video chat with an iPhone user. I have used Google Duo, and it works very well. If you get it and you are currently in my contacts list, it will automatically add you to my Duo list. Available on both platforms.  Android | iOS
  • Speaking of Google Duo, this article from Android Headlines states that it has surpassed 100 million downloads.
  • In the interest of fair play, here is an article detailing one user’s breakup with Android. My own experience is nothing like described in the article, and it makes me wonder what people are doing with their devices, but I leave it here for your enjoyment. 
  • If you are a WhatsApp user, you will want to read this article.

Theology/Christianity:

 In trying to be helpful, many churches have failed, because they have failed to be truthful. They have failed not out of hardness of heart, or lacking of kindness, but in thinking that they are more merciful than God. I shudder to think about how much more rigorous, painful, and dangerous, and difficult my conversion would have been had it taken place in 2016. Rigorous, painful, dangerous, and difficult both for me personally and for my church. … Especially today the PCA is smitten in a stupid way, I’m using a hard word, very stupid way and to their shame, to the gay Christian movement. — Dr. Butterfield.
