Family poisons Christian convert from Islam
If a Muslim converts to Christianity in Uganda it can be dangerous. That alleged “apostasy” is seen as a capital offense against the false god Allah and is often met with anger, hatred and violence.
Ronald Nayekuliza, a Ugandan father of four, was recently poisoned by his extended family because of his newfound Christian faith. Ronald was attending a memorial service for his father in Kokola village in eastern Uganda on November 10th when he was poisoned with pesticides in his food, reports International Christian Concern.
According to Morning Star News, while Ronald survived, the poisoning has created a lot of fear for Christians in the community, prompting them to stay home from attending church on Sunday, Nov. 18.
This is the prayer request from one of them. “We need prayers so that God may guide us as we face uncertainty of tomorrow within a hostile environment of Muslim relatives.”
Louisville: Christian photographers must take pics of homosexual wedding
A Christian wedding photographer filed a suit last week against the City of Louisville, Kentucky for an ordinance that would force her to photograph homosexual weddings and prevents her from posting her religious beliefs on her website, reports ChristianHeadlines.com.
Alliance Defending Freedom filed the suit in federal court on behalf of Chelsey Nelson, who owns a studio, Chelsey Nelson Photography.
The lawsuit says, “Chelsey believes that God designed marriage as a gift to people of all faiths, races, and backgrounds and that God ordained marriage to be a covenant between one man and one woman. Chelsey’s views on marriage come from her personal interpretation of the Bible and the denominational teachings of the Southern Baptist Convention and her church.
Ephesians 5:11 declares, “Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them.”
Democratic Governor vetoes ban of Down Syndrome baby abortions
Last Thursday, Democratic Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf vetoed a bill that would have banned abortions over a diagnosis that an unborn baby has Down syndrome. He did so just a day after it passed the GOP-controlled Pennsylvania legislature, reports Faithwire.com.
The state allows women to get abortions for any reason, except to select a gender, up to 24 weeks of pregnancy.
Sadly, in America, 90 percent of the unborn children who are diagnosed as having Down Syndrome are aborted.
Secret documents reveal Chinese detention camps for 1.5 million Muslims
Documents leaked on Sunday expose new details about how the Chinese government is using a network of detention centers to brainwash 1.5 million Muslims in Western China, reports the Christian Post.
The documents, called “The China Cables”, contradict the Chinese Communists’ claim that the network of detention centers constructed across Xinjiang in recent years only exist as places of voluntary re-education to help Muslims with extremist tendencies get on the right path.
Compassionate 12-year-old boy has fed 9,000 homeless
And finally, Symond Boschett is no ordinary middle schooler. Indeed, while many of his classmates are caught up in video games and sports, he is devoting himself to feeding the homeless, reports Faithwire.com.
Symond, who is just 12 years of age, has even set up his own non-profit to help him carry out his charitable mission — he was just eight when he launched “Share Hope USA.”
Symond’s dream was birthed when his father drove past a homeless man on the freeway who was holding up a sign with the plea, “Need money to eat, please help.”
Immediately, the inspirational young man knew he had to act. “I had $5 in my pocket, and I wanted to give it to him, but we had already passed him, and so I told my dad, ‘I want to help them,’” he recalled. “And he said, ‘Well, I can turn around and we can go give him the $5.’ I said, ‘You don’t understand, I want to help them all.’”
Following this exchange, and with the support of his dad, Symond set up “Share Hope USA” almost immediately. He said, “We bring [food] out to wherever the homeless are, under the overpasses, behind the freeways. We bring them hot meals.”
The group has since fed some 9,000 needy people.
Isaiah 58:10 says : “If you spend yourselves on behalf of the hungry and satisfy the needs of the oppressed, then your light will rise in the darkness, and your night will become like the noonday”
