  • For those of you who are searching for the best task list, there are many options available. The Microsoft version has just received an update. In case you are wondering, I am using Todoist. Google tasks also received an update. Next week I will be writing a review of Todoist. 
  • I have been experimenting with “mind-mapping” and Lifehacker has given a list of the best tools in this area for 2019. 
  • Charging our devices is a way of life. This cable will charge your iPhone from 0-80 percent in under an hour. Read more here.
  • Honey – I have been using this browser extension for quite some time. It will save you money when you make purchases on the internet by scanning for discount codes that you probably do not know exits. It will convert your savings into “honey gold” that you can redeem for gift cards to popular stores, including Walmart and Amazon. You should use it. I now have enough honey gold to get over $50 in gift cards at Amazon. PRICE: Free. Risk: None. Benefit: You save money wherever you shop online. It is silly not to try it. 
  • Phone battle: The Samsung Galaxy S10+ vs. the OnePlus 7T Pro.

Theology/Christianity:

The author of Hebrews tells us that Jesus was “in every respect . . . tempted as we are, yet without sin” (Hebrews 4:15). Jesus Christ, the God-man, was truly tempted in his humanity, though not in all the same ways as sinners are. Temptations came at him from without, while inside he remained “without sin.” Though Satan and a rebellious world assaulted him, temptation never found a home within him. He is, therefore, both impeccable in his moral purity and sympathetic to tempted sinners.

Daily Roundup for December 5, 2017

Here are the items and resources of interest for December 5, 2017:



Theology/Christianity:

It is important to note that the Reformers held to sola Scriptura, not solo ScripturaSolo Scriptura advocates a radical individualism that rejects the church, creeds, confessions, and tradition as having any authority while embracing private judgment above all else. This view radicalizes the Protestant ethic and undermines it. Such an approach finds no credence in the teaching of the Reformers or the early church. Conversely, the Reformers taught the Apostles’ Creed and stood upon the truths articulated at Chalcedon and Nicaea. Martin Luther, John Calvin, John Knox, Henry Bullinger, and Martin Bucer all wrote catechisms and confessions for their people. They viewed an anti-creedal and anti-confessional theology as anti-Christian. None of the prominent Protestant Reformers advocated solo Scriptura.

It is a common suspicion among Protestant teachers that using a confession for discipleship will devalue Scripture in the heart of a disciple. The first step toward being convinced otherwise is to understand that a good confession clearly places itself beneath Scripture.

What makes a porno movie a “porno” and what makes Game of Thrones a record-shattering, Emmy-winning icon of popular culture? They both have plots. They both have lots of sex. I suppose the difference is Game of Thrones has more plot to it than it does sex, so it’s considered a drama and not a porno, whereas a porno has more sex than plot. And I suppose one would say the purpose of Game of Thrones is art, while the purpose of a porno is sex. Though that’s a very subjective statement that many in the porn industry would refute, at the end of the day, both purposes are money, but that’s another story.
