State of California Cracks Down on Undercover Investigations of Abortion Mills

The State of California is cracking down on undercover reporters after the Center for Medical Progress released their films last year implicating Planned Parenthood with trafficking in baby body parts. The Senate passed the California Assembly bill 1671 that would restrict any reporters or ‘whistleblowers’ from undercover investigations of any health clinics or abortion mills in the state. However, thus far, the California state government has not acted to protect babies from the harvesting of body parts.   

Religious Freedom Organization Encourages Obama to Speak Up for Christians at G20 Summit

The United States Commission on International Religious Freedom is encouraging President Obama to speak out for Chinese Christians at the G20 Summit in Zhejiang province this weekend.   

Bob Fu from China Aid told The World View that this diplomatic event is one of the most important events for Christians since the advent of the Communist party. He said that this would be Obama’s last chance to speak out for the Chinese Christians.   

“President Obama has really failed, meetings of Chinese [?], Chinese religious believers, Christians included, in the past seven years. This is his last chance to really redeem himself.”

Lawsuit Against Obama over Genocide Issue Proceeding

ACLJ’s lawsuit against President Obama for ignoring the genocide of Christians in the Middle East is proceeding. Though the US Department of State did say that ISIS had been perpetrating genocide in early 2016, nothing has been done to aid the persecuted minority. Attorney Matthew Clark from ACLJ talked to the Worldview about the lawsuit.

“Secretary Kerry came out and proclaimed that ISIS is committing genocide against Christians and other religious minorities, and that’s a very specific legal term. And it requires that the US then take action, under the genocide convention that the US is signed on to. But we have seen no action out of this administration to protect religious minorities that are facing slaughters, massacres, genocide.”

Ray Comfort Agrees that the Christian Stories Are Childish

Christian evangelist Ray Comfort was interviewed by Hemant​ Mehta from the Friendly Atheist blog. When he was asked why there are so many stories that atheists see as “dumb” and childish, Ray Comfort agreed that they were childish. He reminded Mr. Mehta of what Jesus said.  . . “That God has deliberately ‘hidden these things from the wise and prudent, and revealed them to babes.’”

​​Jesus said that unless we humble ourselves as little children, we will not enter the Kingdom of God.” (Matthew 18:3)​

Wedding Venue in Texas Announces They Will Only Host Biblical Marriages

One wedding venue in Texas is standing up for their Christian beliefs. They placed an ad in a local magazine that the wedding venue will ‘only host biblical marriages’ because of their commitment to God and the truth of His Word. Bob and Genie Flournoy started hosting weddings on the property about 6 years ago. They had no idea that they would ever be confronted by the issue of having to compromise their Christian ​faith over weddings at their venue.

Bob told The World View that it is absolutely essential for Christians to trust and believe God in the matter of biblical marriage in these trying times.   

“I begin to see that we as Christians either stand for what we believe, trust God, and believe God over man, or we’re going to be in the same boat that our country has come to, where we don’t stand for our principles.”

Bob also said that he hopes that his stand for Biblical marriage will encourage other Christians not to let the liberal agenda squeeze God out of the culture.

“This, for me, was what He gave me an opportunity to do. I believe He gave me this home that I have, this profession that I have, this long marriage that I have, this love for the Word of God, I think He’s given me everything that there is, and you know, He has arranged this. And I’m just a part of something that I think is extremely vital at this moment in history, and at this religious liberty.”
