Algeria, Africa jumps from 42 to 22 on Open Doors’ World Watch List

A campaign to shut down churches continues in Algeria, Africa with the most recent closure on September 2, reports Open Doors UK.

Police officers arrived at the Church of the Prince of Peace in Ighzer Amokrane and sealed the building after the church had been issued a closure order.

In the past couple of years, officials have been systematically shutting down churches in the African nation and have refused to accept license applications by churches for over a decade.

The Muslim-majority nation jumped from 42 to 22 on Open Door’s 2019 World Watch List of the worst nations for Christian persecution. However, the church is growing there.

Brazil’s Christian president : “The truth shall make you free!”

Brazil’s President Jair Bolsonaro addressed the U.N. General Assembly in New York on Tuesday, joining President Trump this week in expressing concern over the persecution of Christians.

Bolsonaro also spoke strongly against ideologies like globalism, socialism, political correctness, and ideas that destroy the family.

“Ideology has invaded the human soul to rip it apart from God and from the dignity He bestowed on us.

“When it comes to matters related to climate, democracy, human rights, to the equality of rights and duties between men and women and many others, all we need to do is contemplate the truth, following John 8:32: ‘Ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.’”

New South Wales greenlights baby murder

As The Worldview reported yesterday, the New South Wales Upper House voted in favor of an abortion bill on Wednesday.

And yesterday, the New South Wales Legislative Assembly approved the measure in an historic vote that overturns a 119-year-old law protecting the unborn.

New South Wales, Australia’s most populous state, had been the last state or territory to have protections for unborn babies.

Democrats want to strip Christian groups of tax-exempt status

Last week, U.S. House Democrats argued that sixty so-called “hate groups” should have their tax-exempt status removed during a Ways and Means Committee hearing.

Most of the groups are Christian or socially conservative organizations which affirm a Biblical worldview related to sexuality and marriage and  are targeted by the discredited Southern Poverty Law Center.

House Republicans argued such a move would violate the groups’ First Amendment rights.

Gilmer, Texas becomes ninth “sanctuary city for the unborn” 

The city council members of Gilmer, Texas voted on Tuesday to declare the jurisdiction a “sanctuary city for the unborn.”

This comes a day after another Texas town, Tenaha, passed a similar pro-life measure and a week after Joaquin, Texas passed a sanctuary city for the unborn ordinance there.

Gilmer is now the sixth in Texas and the ninth in the U.S. to make such a declaration.

Gilmer city manager Greg Hutson explained.

HUTSON: ”[Gilmer is] a safe haven where the unborn has a right to come here and not worry about being aborted”

Proverbs 24:11 says, “Deliver those who are drawn toward death, and hold back those stumbling to the slaughter.”

House Intelligence Committee release whistleblower complaint

Yesterday, the House Intelligence Committee released the whistleblower complaint which led the current impeachment inquiry against President Trump over claims he pressured Ukraine to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter.

The whistleblower said he or she got the information from White House officials and alleged that Trump meant to “solicit interference from a foreign country” in the upcoming election.

One million students gathered at flagpole Wednesday to pray

Christians around the world gathered on Wednesday morning at their school flag pole for the annual “See You at the Pole” prayer rally, reports Fox News.

The movement began with some Texas students in 1990 and now draws one million students across America and over 64 countries.

The theme of the event was 2 Chronicles 7:14 where God says, “If My people, who are called by My name, will humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”

However, the lively British man recently celebrated his 77th birthday surrounded by family and friends in Nottingham, England.

One staff member at his care home made this comment to the BBC.
