Thursday Thoughts: Vol 4 | Is 8

Pastor Steve shares these links to stimulate some Thursday Thoughts

The Early Symptoms of Spiritual Danger … Sinclair Ferguson has a very helpful post concerning the dangerous path to apostasy. He writes: “The solemn fact is that none of us can tell the difference between the beginning of backsliding and the beginning of apostasy. Both look the same. So what are the tell-tale signs of this sickness unto death? Are there early symptoms that might alert us to our spiritual danger?” You can read the rest HERE.

Four Things Youth Workers Would Tell Parents About Teenagers, Social Media, and Technology … An important read for parents, from Core Christianity. Cameron Cole writes: “In no arena do we see both the darkness outside and inside play out more than in the space of technology and social media. These devices can be wonderful ways to connect with friends and family. They also can be the scenes of some of the worst acts and deeds we observe in teenage behavior. In support of the parent’s role as a defender of his or her kids, I wanted to offer this very hard, very blunt article about obvious technological realities that nearly every youth worker would affirm but that most parents are unaware of.” You can read the rest HERE.

On Being Had … Andree Seu Peterson has written an important post concerning abortion. She writes: “Beware the scorpion who with smooth words seduces hapless frogs to ferry it across the pond, for in the end the poor naïve amphibian will rue his gullibility.” You should read the rest HERE.
