Mexican Evangelical families lose access to water for refusing to deny Christ

Two evangelical families in central Mexico have been threatened with being cut off from essential services or expelled from the community if they continue to refuse to deny their faith and pay a fine illegally levied against them.

The families of Nemesio Hernández and Eligio Hernández, who are from the First Baptist Church in the La Mesa Limantitla area in Hidalgo state, were threatened during a community meeting on Monday, reports Christian Solidarity Worldwide.

In January 2019, many evangelical families were forced to sign an agreement renouncing their faith. While eight families signed it, the families of Cruz Hernández and Santiago Hernández refused to do so.

The community leaders then blocked the two families’ access to water, sewer services, and government benefit programs for over a year until they were forced to sign an agreement on Jan. 15, 2020, in which they renounced their right to hold religious services.

The agreement said each family would be ordered to pay an illegal fine of $3,000. State authorities paid part of the fine, but the families have continued to be threatened with forced displacement.

9/11 remembered

Twenty years ago tomorrow, Muslim terrorists attacked the twin towers of the World Trade Center. The co-anchors of New York Good Day were already talking about the hijacked 767 commercial jet airplane which had crashed into the north tower at 8:45 a.m.

MALE: “It appeared to bank sharply and smash directly, perhaps purposefully, into … Woaa. Oh my goodness, there’s another one. Oh my goodness, there’s another one.”

FEMALE: “This seems to be on purpose.”

MALE: “Oh my goodness.”

THIRD PERSON: “Is that a plane?”

MALE: “Now it’s obvious, I think, that there is a second plane that just crashed into the World Trade Center. I think we have a terrorist act of proportions that we cannot begin to imagine at this juncture.”

The time was 9:03 a.m. And the south tower had just been hit by a second hijacked airplane flown by Muslim terrorists.

Texas Heartbeat Law upheld by U.S. Supreme Court

Pro-life Republican state legislators are eyeing a just-implemented measure in Texas as a model to protect babies in the womb, reports TheHill.com.

The measure that took effect last week bans virtually all abortions after a baby’s heartbeat is detected, about six weeks into a pregnancy, after the U.S. Supreme Court declined to block the law in a 5-4 decision. The law does not make exceptions for pregnancies that result from rape or incest.

Janet Porter, founder of Faith2Action, said, “That means there is a place in the United States where children with beating hearts are legally protected RIGHT NOW!”

Most controversially, it allows almost anyone in Texas to file a civil lawsuit against abortion providers and those who aid a person seeking an abortion after the six-week mark. The person bringing suit would not have to be connected in any way to have legal standing to sue, and they could be awarded at least $10,000 plus attorney’s fees if they win.

That provision, legislators hope, will block abortion rights advocates from challenging the law in court. They cannot bring suit against Texas, because the government is not the entity enforcing the law.

Psalm 139:13-14 says, “For You created my inmost being; You knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise You because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Your works are wonderful, I know that full well.”

United Airlines’ employees with religious exemption put on unpaid leave

United Airlines’ employees who are granted exemptions to a company vaccination mandate for religious reasons will be put on temporary unpaid leave starting next month, reports CNBC.com.

The airline made the announcement on Wednesday, citing the recent rise in Covid cases.

A victory against explicit sex ed and CRT in Nebraska schools

And finally, it’s a victory for conservative values in Nebraska.  

On September 3, the Nebraska State Board of Education voted 5-1 to indefinitely postpone the development of the Nebraska Department of Education Health Standards, reports LifeSiteNews.com.

The Board’s original agenda was viewed by many as a direct assault on the traditional, conservative values of most Nebraska parents.

Draft #1 standards were full of sexually explicit content and Critical Race Theory  components. For example, the Nebraska public schools would have taught that white-skinned people are automatically oppressors, and all others are oppressed. Needless to say, that is the antithesis of Martin Luther King, Jr’s famous admonition to judge people by their character, not by the color of their skin. 

Philippians 2:3 says, “Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility, value others above yourselves.”
