Just In Case You Missed It – May 3-7, 2016

  1. 7 Reasons Why a Trump Administration Might be a Good Thing” by Doug Wilson (Blog and Mablog). You may not be voting for Trump in the upcoming Presidential election but here are some possible good outcomes.
  2. Happy Ascension Day” by Kevin DeYoung (The Gospel Coalition). Does Christ’s Ascension matter? More than you realize!
  3. Good Morning, Amerika” by Ray Ortlund (The Gospel Coalition). This blogger has some very sobering warnings for pastors to consider as they labor among a society that is going to choose between Donald Trump and Hilary Clinton as their next President. Some very good thoughts here.
  4. Good Living is Rooted in Good Theology” by Brandon D. Smith (Desiring God).
  5. Gossip: When Assassination Becomes Acceptable” by Jordan Standridge (Cripplegate).




  1. Unfortunately I found Doug Wilson’s reasoning poor in his distain of Donald Trump. The Never Trump crowd does not see the bigger picture, i.e., we need a political explosion in Washington to jolt both the parties to reverse self-interest. Trump is only an expression of the larger movement. So is Bernie Sanders.


    1. What I appreciated were his comments regarding the need for Christians to break from the idea that being Republican = being a Christian. Being a Republican or Democrat does not guarantee you will govern well or not well. One’s character matters, not one’s political affiliation.
