Links to books I’ve recently started

I usually have about 15 books going at once. These are ones that I have started in the last week. I often reread books that I find enlightening. I obviously don’t agree with every statement in these books. Often, I find books written by those without any Christian faith to be very stimulating as they are addressing issues that are faced by all people.

I did not start any new books this weeks.

  1. I read the article on the sin of “Cynosism” and found it inadequately defined. A Google search clarified it’s meaning for me: “suspecting ulterior motives in the actions of another.” A presumably false suspicion.. I could relate to having been influenced by several of the
    “Causes”. Victory over most, still struggle with some.

    I see a significant difference, however in cynicism and “discerning the spirits,” though they may look and sound very much the same.

    We are living thru a time of great deception. It is invading the Church. I don’t see myself as a cynic, but as a disciple of Christ who is heeding his warnings. It’s not cynasim if the deception and manipulation are real.

    Just a thought

    And thank you for sharing what you read. I never get to read everything because of my own reading. I wish I knew how to build a similar platform to yours for my self. My gifts are centered in science and medicine, not history; but I would like to influence those things from a Biblical worldview.

    Love you guys and miss you. Give move to your bride.
