Weekend Reading: October 22, 2016

Good morning from sunny Orlando!  I’m at a series of meetings this weekend for Ligonier Ministries, where some amazing work is being done, and planned.  Therefore I’m going to have to keep today’s blog/email really really really short.  Nonetheless, here are a few things you may want to take a peak at…

Scientists Wonder If the Common Cold May at Last Be Beatable – boy oh boy wouldn’t THIS be a good one to figure out!  I remember playing the game of Life growing up, and one of the things you could win major money for was “curing the common cold”!

Here’s one I didn’t get to read but am looking forward to….9 Things You Should Know About Planned Parenthood Founder Margaret Sanger (good follow up to the abortion discussion from this week’s final Presidential debate).

Speaking of the Presidential debate, Al Mohler had a very good podcast summing it all up.  I highly recommend listening and thinking about what he says and how he says it. You can always learn something from Al Mohler!

Red State has 5 takeaways from the debate. I don’t always agree with these guys, but its interesting to read their perspective.

There’s no doubt in my mind that Chris Wallace was an amazing debate moderator. The other previous moderators were simply terrible.  Wallace deserves all the praise that’s coming his way. 

Politics is changing – here’s another sign of that change: How 10 mega-donors already helped pour a record $1.1 billion into super PACs. Keep in mind this is written by the Post, which means that they won’t even consider the way Union money affected elections for the liberals prior to the Citizens United ruling. The only mention of unions at all is in a blurb about how liberal activist Tom Steyer is giving them millions to turn out the vote.

TECH ALERT: Switch Is the Dream Console Nintendo’s Been Working Toward for Years

MORE TECH: Fact checking is coming to Google News (h/t Marty G.)

VIDEO: Last week I finished reading David McCullough’s ‘The Wright Brothers’ (h/t Rod K.), and boy was it good. Very enjoyable – especially for someone from Ohio!  Anyway, I stumbled on this old sound-less video this week when during further research into the brothers, and its really cool!

Here’s another one I didn’t finish all the way but really look forward to thinking more about:  Use Anxiety to Your Advantage

Probably the most infuriating news of the week: Duterte aligns Philippines with China, says U.S. has lost.  Douglass MacArthur would be spinning in his grave!

THEOLOGY: If No One Is Lost, Then the Mission of Christ Was a Waste of Time

Finally, Jon Bloom eloquently says some things about judging that are helpful – especially as it concerns the election.  A nice follow up to my post from last week.

That’s it!  I hope you enjoy your Saturday!
