Welcome to your weekend! It’s Saturday morning and if you have coffee in one hand, and your smart phone in the other, take a peak at some of the most interesting blogs, videos, and articles from this week.
Let’s start with the best blog of the week. It’s a piece by Jon Bloom titled ‘Don’t Give Up’.
And the award for fascinating story of the week goes to Ron Winslow over at the Wall Street Journal who has a story about how hospitals are the worst places to have heart attacks.
FREE STUFF ALERT: John Piper has a bunch of free e-books you might want to check out, and this month’s free audiobook from ChristianAudio.com is R.C. Sproul’s ‘Everyone’s a Theologian’ – a must have.
Ravi Zacharias’ ministry has a short video addressing whether Christians and Muslims worship the same God…interesting stuff!
And Russell Moore has a WSJ op-ed about the way Evangelicals should be thinking about the 2016 elections. Key graph:
“In recent years candidates have assumed that they can win over evangelicals by learning Christian slogans, by masking political rallies as prayer meetings, and by basically producing a long-form new birth certificate to prove they’ve been born again. This sort of identity politics is a luxury of a past era when evangelicals were part of a silent majority in the U.S., with our First Amendment freedoms assumed and guaranteed. That is not the present situation.”
Randy Alcorn is someone I really respect for his ability to think through difficult questions. This week he wrote a blog titled, ‘Some Thoughts for Those Who Are Considering Divorce’
