You’re Gonna Wanna Read This! 8/28/18

It’s been a while since I’ve recommended some blog articles.  I’ve been on vacation for one thing, and I’ve also tried to make the posts I recommend more meaningful.  I hope you really do read these.

Last Sunday, I mentioned John Piper’s A.N.T.H.E.M. acronym for fighting lust (and any sin really).  While he hasn’t finished publishing the series, here are the links to the first four parts: Avoid, No, Turn, Hold (Enjoy and Move are coming soon).

Avoid: The First Step to Defeating Lust

Say No: You Have Five Seconds to Kill It

Turn: Why You Keep Falling into Sexual Sin

Hold On: Do Not Grow Weary in Fighting Lust

When the next two come out, I will be posting them as well.

Also:

Jared Wilson talks about our internet persona being different than our real-life person.  Astutely, he writes, “the medium favors talking, not listening, and it strips away inconvenient things like looking somebody in the eye, reading facial cues, or even using our real names and faces in the first place.” I would highly recommend reading (but not just reading, but doing).

Let Your Internet Yes Be Your Real-Life Yes
