Another win for conservatives with the Internal Revenue Service.

Notorious Murderer Charles Manson Dies
Charles Manson, perhaps America’s most infamous murderer, has gone to meet his Maker.
Manson was found guilty of seven murders. Sadly, the state of California neglected to put him to death after he shed the innocent blood of others back in 1969. The California Supreme Court ruled the death penalty for murder unconstitutional in 1972.
None of the final media interviews with Manson indicated that he had repented.

Deuteronomy 22:5 says, “A woman shall not wear a man’s garment, nor shall a man put on a woman’s cloak, for whoever does these things is an abomination to the LORD your God.”

Isaiah 2:11,12 says, “The haughty looks of man shall be brought low, and the lofty pride of men shall be humbled, and the Lord alone will be exalted in that day. For the Lord of hosts has a day, against all that is proud and lofty, against all that is lifted up—and it shall be brought low;. . . and the idols shall utterly pass away.”

Google Hires 13-Year-Old Boy to Work with AI Program
He is touted as the youngest IOS app designer in the world.
Tanmay Bakshi began when he was five years old. He helped with the IBM Watson program, and most recently at 13 years of age, he was hired by Google to work with their Artificial Intelligence program.
Young Bakshi appeared on Duncan Garner’s AM Show in New Zealand recently, and acknowledged that he was homeschooled, and recommended it for others.
Garner: “Has the homeschooling association of the world got hold of you as their front person?”
Bakshi: “Well, there is actually a Homeschooling Legal Defense Association, I believe, HSLDA, in Canada, and I actually had a keynote for them last year in Niagara Falls.”
Garner: “So you’re the poster boy for homeschooling, aren’t you?”
Bakshi: “Well I did have a keynote for them, and I talked a lot about the advantages of homeschooling and why it’s great for kids who want to go into different and really targeted subjects.”
Living “Pre-Historic” Shark Discovered off Coast of Portugal
And finally, evolutionary theoreticians are confused again, after discovering a “pre-historic” shark swimming off the coast of Portugal.
Evolutionists thought the frilled shark would have been 80 million years old, but in God’s providence, the species was recently discovered to live in the deep seas between 400 and 4,000 feet and it grows to 6 feet in length.
Speaking of the ungodly worldly thinkers, Paul writes, “For although they knew God, they did not honor Him as God or give thanks to Him, but they became futile in their thinking, and their foolish hearts were darkened. Claiming to be wise, they became fools.” (Romans 1:21-22)
