CHRISTIAN HACKING: “Our Father Who art in Heaven, hallowed by Your name. Your kingdom come.”

POLICE OFFICER: “Stand up. You’re under arrest.”

HACKING: “I can’t stand up. I’m in a wheelchair.  I’m not moving sir, I’m praying. That’s all I’ve done.  I haven’t done anything wrong.  I’ve been praying. Lord Jesus.  Have mercy Lord Jesus. Have mercy!”

That’s the voice of Christian Hacking, a handicapped British man in a wheelchair, who was arrested for praying to God on a sidewalk outside of an abortion mill in the UK.

Thanks be to God, the case has since been dismissed, reports the UK Telegraph. The Crown Prosecution Service sent him a letter noting that there was not enough evidence to provide a realistic prospect of conviction.

Shocking contrast in out-of-wedlock births, abortions, ADD meds

Interestingly, only 6% of Baby Boomers were conceived out of wedlock whereas 40% of Gen Zers were born illegitimately.  And only .01% of Baby Boomer kids were aborted in the early 1960s, while 25% of Gen Zers were killed in their mother’s wombs.

Gen Z Kids were taking 120,000,000 grams of Adderall and Ritalin by 2017, up from 2,000,000 grams taken by the Gen X Kids in the 1980s. That’s a 60-fold increase, reports the Drug Enquirer.

Chile protests leave 20 dead, thousands wounded

Protests on the streets of Chile have left 20 dead and thousands wounded over the last two weeks.  Protesters are calling for free college education and more government subsidies for retirees.

Plus, violent protests in Haiti have also resulted in 42 deaths over the last several weeks.

However, the Scriptures tell Christians “You shall not follow a crowd to do evil; nor shall you testify in a dispute so as to turn aside after many to pervert justice.” (Exodus 23:2).

Criminalization of homosexuality in Cook Islands

The Cook Islands Parliament is reinstating a law that would criminalize homosexuality on the islands.

According to the Cook Island News, this comes after pressure from the local churches to work on the nation’s crimes bill.

Located in the South Pacific Ocean in free association with New Zealand, Cook Islands is a self-governing country comprised of 15 islands.

In addition, earlier this year, the Prime Minister of Fiji announced his nation to be a God-fearing nation and the government would never allow “same-sex marriage.”

Bahamas pastor: Hurricane Dorian wake-up call to nation; Great Commission had been shelved

And finally, Kevin Swanson, director of Generations and founder of The Worldview in 5 Minutes, reports from the Grand Bahama island on how American churches can help Bahamian Christian churches in crisis after the devastation caused by Hurricane Dorian.

“This is Kevin Swanson from Freeport, Grand Bahama Island in The Bahamas, reporting on the impact of Dorian on the people, the churches, and the nation.

“Yesterday, Pastor Cranston Knowles and I toured the eastern half of the Grand Bahama Island, and the areas that sustained the major impact of the storm. Two small church buildings were completely destroyed — a Methodist church building and a Baptist church building.  These were not more than 800-square-foot sanctuaries. Large portions of an Anglican church were also destroyed, but it looked like the sanctuary was intact.

“There were portions of the island in which every telephone pole was snapped in half. And for miles and miles you would find the electric wires lying on the ground next to the highway.  However, the good news is that the worst hit areas were very sparsely populated. About 10% of the homes represented in the churches were totally destroyed by our calculations.

“We probably saw 20-30 tents, pitched in front of homes on the eastern end, in which people were trying to rebuild their homes or at least prevent robberies. I only saw one team of guys working on a roof in my travels. We toured the hardware store and found very little in terms of drywall and zero roofing materials available on the island.

“Blue tarps were covering almost every roof, or at least portion of the roofs — where families are attempting to mitigate additional water damage. The churches are the distribution centers for food and water on the island and have been for two months now.   We came upon a small Baptist church in a village half-way to the end of the island, in which they conduct a distribution once a day.

“So far, only one church has been repaired, thanks to an American team that came out a week ago from the Fundamentalist Baptist Churches. We have spoken with and prayed with 8-10 pastors on the island. It’s been good.

Pastor George Thompson at Community of Heart Tabernacle told me “this is a wake-up call to the nation.  The Great Commission had been shelved. We have strayed far away from where we were —  humble and highly religious.”

“Pastor Norris Bain told me that the love of God’s people has really come out through this tragedy, and ‘God is really good all the time’. That’s what he told me.

“Right now, the greatest need is getting building materials here to the island. The majority of families do not have insurance.  And my estimate is that each church is bearing the impact of about $187,000 in material costs (that includes repairs to the church building and the homes affected by the storm, but excludes furnishings.)

“It would take about 300 to 600 local churches in America to partner with 200 churches on this island, to help rebuild.  Let’s do good to all men, but especially to the household of God. (Galatians 6:10)

“This is Kevin Swanson reporting from Freeport, Grand Bahama Island, after Dorian.”
