Weekend Reading: September 3, 2016

Good morning and welcome to your Labor Day weekend!   I just woke up from an enjoyable camping experience in central Ohio with friends, and while some of the others locate the restoratives (coffee!!) I’ll pass along the best stuff I read this week before I leave my tent…

Here goes…

There were several stories about how The Donald was closing the gap on HRC in the polls.  I saw a few of those, though when you examine the battleground states, it’s still an uphill climb.  What’s shocking is that after all that happens he’s still right in the margin of error – she’s just THAT bad.  In fact, one of the big stories earlier in the week was how HRC’s Favorability Ratings had plunged to the same level as The Donald’s. So it should be no surprise that they’re running neck and neck. Who can offend and turn off fewer people? That seems to be the question at this point. 

And breaking: Vacationing President Obama Dedicates 18th-Hole Birdie To Louisiana Flood Victims.  Actually, though these are funny stories, I agree with my friend Chris who says that we could leave the POTUS alone about his golf…(I certainly have no room to speak!)

RC Sproul asks the question some of us might have wondered: Can Salvation be Lost because of Sin???

This was short but good: How Reliable Is Your Conscience? 

Piper Video: Does Baptism Save You?  He works through a difficult passage of scripture. 

This was pretty interesting: How The Catholic Church Documented Mother Teresa’s 2 Miracles.  I believe in the supernatural, but to attribute it to any saint and not to Christ is clearly counter to Scripture. “For there is one God, and there is one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus” – 1 Timothy 2:5.  Hard to explain that one away. 

Two great photo essays this week. First: The Mammoth Pirates and Second: Tomato Slinging in Spain Sparks Food Fight Trend. Interesting stuff! 

SCANDAL: Secret exemption for Iran and Secret Payments for Iran.  There really are no words.  John Kerry will go down as the most ineptit diplomat since Chamberlain. 

Gene Wilder is dead at the age of 83.

Liberal, Moderate or Conservative? See How Facebook Labels You.  

FUNNY: The joy of betrayal: Bob Ross’ famous hair was the result of a perm.  

Erickson bemoanes the liberal media: Peak Trump Hatred. 

Oh man….Children’s Services launches Anthony Weiner probe

In case you missed it: Tim Cook: Apple tax ruling ‘political,’ ‘maddening’.  

Also: Senior ISIS Strategist and Spokesman Is Reported Killed in Syria

Wha??!!?? REPORT: One of the 100 Desks in the U.S. Senate Chamber is Full of Candy.  No wonder they’re able to talk so long…

That’s good enough I think!  Go enjoy your weekend!
