Three Ugandan Muslim converts to Christianity fear for their lives
Three Muslim leaders in Uganda — Tamir, Salomon, and Michael — recently converted to Christianity. Because of their newfound faith in Christ, they are now being hunted down by vengeful Muslims, reports International Christian Concern.
When Tamir was baptized, the Muslims chased away his family of four, and destroyed his house. Thankfully, a local pastor is taking care of Tamir and his family until they can find a more secure place to live.
After Salomon gave his life to Christ and was baptized the same day, he and his family of five have been in hiding since he once was a teacher in the local mosque.
Interestingly, Salomon came across a verse in the Quran that states that Muhammad is dead, and those who followed him are also dead.
He compared it with John 14:6, in which Jesus Christ said, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.”
Sadly, his Muslim friends and family are trying to hunt him down to kill him for converting to Christianity.
And following the conversion of a third Muslim imam, Michael, and his wife, they face the same lethal threat.
Thankfully, International Christian Concern is providing emergency food supplies for these three families.
Biden blasts “MAGA” Republicans as “semi-fascist”
BIDEN: “I respect conservative Republicans. I don’t respect these [Make America Great Again] Republicans. The MAGA Republicans don’t just threaten our personal rights and economic security. They’re a threat to our very democracy. They refuse to accept the will of the people. Trump and the extreme MAGA Republicans have made their choice to go backwards, full of anger, violence, hate, and division. But we’ve chosen a different path — forward.”
Biden’s attacks were out of step with his own call for unity when he was inaugurated on January 20, 2021.
BIDEN: “History, faith, and reason show the way — the way of unity. We can see each other, not as adversaries, but as neighbors. We can treat each other with dignity and respect. We can join forces, stop the shouting, and lower the temperature. For without unity, there is no peace, only bitterness and fury.”
After Biden’s laughable “unity” rally, he made a startling remark at a private fundraiser in Rockville, Maryland later that night.
According to Axios.com, the president said, “What we are seeing is either the beginning or the death knell of an extreme MAGA philosophy.” – referring to Trump’s slogan “Make America Great Again.” Biden said, “It’s not just Trump. It’s the entire philosophy that underpins it. I’m going to say something. It’s like semi-fascism.”
DeANGELIS: “It’s insulting. And to say the agenda is extreme. Ultra MAGA voters. Those are half the voters. Does anybody else recall that the election was not won by a landslide? That there were razor thin margins in key swing states? And these are voters that he may need on his side?
“He’s trying to insult people in this sort of sandbox approach. If I don’t like you, I’m going to throw sand in your face. People are insulted by it. It makes them angry. It makes them want to get out and vote.”
Christian teacher wins $95k after suing school over pronoun policy
A retired Christian Kansas teacher won $95,000 in a lawsuit against the Geary County school district after administrators attempted to force her to deceive parents about their student’s gender identity, reports Fox News.
Pamela Ricard, age 58, argued that school administrators in Kansas had demanded that she use students’ preferred gender pronouns in classrooms, but avoid using those terms when speaking to parents. Ricard sued, arguing such deception was against her Christian beliefs.
The district agreed to settle on Wednesday. Ricard and her attorneys at Alliance Defending Freedom withdrew the lawsuit.
ADF Senior Counsel Tyson Langhofer said, “No school district should ever force teachers to willfully deceive parents or engage in any speech that violates their deeply held religious beliefs.”
Man reunited with missing ring after 54 years
And finally, a man has been reunited with a ring he lost while picking fruit 54 years ago, reports GoodNewsNetwork.org.
It was gifted by his late mother for his 21st birthday, but slipped off his finger as he picked strawberries in 1968.
Retired train engineer Dave Radley remembers having spent several distraught hours as a 21-year-old trying to locate the ring among the rows of bushes. He was picking strawberries in the field behind a friend’s father’s house to sell that morning when he suddenly realized the ring was no longer on his finger.
He had received the 9-karat gold ring as a present just weeks before, but the fit was a little loose.
Thanks to a friend with a metal detector, the ring was found. Over time, it had become buried in the dirt, seven inches underground.
RADLEY: “I was completely amazed and gobsmacked. It’s just absolutely amazing that it’s come to light after all these years.”
Radley said, “I’m so grateful to have it back. The joy I felt in that moment is indescribable.”
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 says, “Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.”
