Nigerian Muslims killed Christian doctor June 17th
Dr. Precious Chinedu was killed after five Fulani herdsmen walked into the private hospital he operated in Salka Village.
A long-time friend, Baridueh Badon, said, “Everyone loved him, always smiling, and he was one of the most hard-working persons I have ever known. His hospital boomed because he was saving lives. His blood will keep crying until justice is done.”
Romans 2:5-9 says that these Muslim killers will be held accountable. “But by your hard and impenitent heart you are storing up wrath for yourself on the day of wrath, when God’s righteous judgment will be revealed. For He will repay according to each one’s deeds. … For those who are self-seeking and who obey not the truth but wickedness, there will be wrath and fury. There will be anguish and distress for everyone who does evil.”
Miami-area 12-story apt. building collapsed — 4 dead, 159 missing
With nearly 160 people unaccounted for and at least four dead after a seaside condominium tower in Surfside, Florida collapsed into a smoldering heap of twisted metal and concrete, rescuers used both heavy equipment and their own hands to comb through the wreckage on Friday in an increasingly desperate search for survivors, reports the Associated Press.
As scores of firefighters in the city just north of Miami toiled to locate and reach anyone still alive in the remains of the 12-story Champlain Towers South, built in 1981, hopes rested on how quickly crews using dogs and microphones could complete their grim, yet delicate task.
Fernando Velasquez said his 66-year-old brother Julio was in the building when it fell. He said, “I miss my brother very much. I talk to him almost every day. But I know he’s in Heaven, because he was in love with Christ. If he is gone, he is in a much better place.”
Secretary of Education will not state how many genders there are
Last Thursday, in a hearing of the House Education and Labor Committee, Republican Congresswoman Mary Miller of Illinois asked Biden’s Education Secretary Miguel Cardona a simple question. “How many genders are there?”
He refused to answer the question, reports CNSNews.com.
MILLER: “Your department recently released this resource for students and families called ‘Confronting anti-LGBTQ Harassment in Schools.’ Under your leadership, this document gives an example of harassment which is a teacher telling students that there are only two genders, boys and girls. That’s a genetic and biological fact.
“Before we start penalizing teachers for stating a genetic and biological fact about genders, can you please clarify, for the committee, how many genders there are?”
CARDONA: “How would you respond to a student who is non-binary in your classroom?”
MILLER: “But how many genders are there? Will you please state?”
CARDONA: “I won’t be answering your question.”
Florida mayor incorrectly claimed terrorist attack against LHBT
TRANTALIS: “What we saw was a terrorist attack on the LGBT community. This is disgusting. We will not stand for this. This is not going to happen in my city or any city.”
It turns out that the 77-year-old man who drove the white pick-up truck – complete with a big homosexual rainbow flag in the back – was a homosexual himself. Because he had an impairment, which prohibited him from walking, he was supposed to be the lead vehicle of the parade.
Scott Newton, the Mayor of Wilton Manors, explained what actually happened.
NEWTON: “What I understand is he had a problem with his leg and that’s why he didn’t walk in the parade. So, he’s driving the truck. His foot slipped, fell off the brake, got stuck behind the brake, and was lodged into the accelerator.”
In other words, it was an accident. The driver, who has not been identified by local authorities, is cooperating fully with investigators, showed no signs of impairment, and has not been charged.
The victims, both adult males, were members of the Fort Lauderdale Gay Men’s Chorus. In fact, the driver himself is also a member of homosexual men’s Chorus.
Once Fort Lauderdale, Florida Mayor Trantalis had all the facts, he walked back his initial claim that terrorists had attacked homosexuals in the Pride Parade.
TRANTALIS: “I immediately knew that something terrible was happening. My visceral reaction was that we were being attacked. I regret the fact that I said it was a terrorist attack because we found out that it was not. But I don’t regret my feelings. I don’t regret that I felt terrorized by someone who plowed through the crowd.”
Notice how the people on the Left, who justify sin like homosexual behavior, still defend their feelings, no matter how incorrect the initial conclusion turned out to be.
Leviticus 18:22 says, “Do not have sexual relations with a man as one does with a woman; that is detestable.”

12 new Worldview listeners donated $2,475
And finally, to help keep The Worldview on the air, we need to raise $65,000 by Friday, July 9th. Toward our goal of raising $32,500 by last Friday, 12 new Worldview listeners stepped up to the plate.
Our thanks to Frances in Pflugerville, Texas who gave $25, Chris in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho who gave $40, Sheryl in Westmoreland, Tennessee who gave $50, and Linda in Wesley Chapel, Florida who gave $60.
We’re grateful to God for Valera in Bassett, Virginia, Jeremy and Kristin in Cleveland, Tennessee, Arturo here in San Antonio, Texas, and Maurice and Kim in Millersville, Maryland – each of whom gave $100.
And we’re humbled by the generosity of Nicole in Columbus, Georgia who gave $200, Jonathan in Centerville, Tennessee who gave $500, Brian in Dassel, Minnesota who pledged $50/month for 12 months for a gift of $600, and an anonymous gift from Wisconsin for $600.
Those 12 donors gave $2,475, Ready for our new grand total? Drum roll please. (Drum roll sound effect). $33,293 (Sound effect of people cheering) That means we surpassed Friday’s goal of $32,500 by $793. Praise God!
In order to hit the $48,750 goal by this Friday, July 2nd, we need to raise $15,457. That means I need to find 26 Worldview listeners who will pledge $25/month for 12 months for a gift of $300. And another 13 listeners who will pledge $50/month for 12 months for a gift of $600. And remember, the next 6 listeners who pledge $50/month will be matched, dollar for dollar, by a generous couple in Minnesota.
Just go to TheWorldview.com, click on “Give,” select the dollar amount, and select the recurring button, if that’s your wish. What would the Lord have you do?

Former Minneapolis cop Derek Chauvin given 22 years in prison
Former Minneapolis officer Derek Chauvin on Friday was sentenced to 22 1/2 years in prison for second-degree murder months after he was convicted in the death of George Floyd, coming hours after a judge denied his request for a new trial, reports The Epoch Times.
The sentence was handed down by Hennepin County District Court Judge Peter Cahill, who said in the hearing that he didn’t “base [his] sentence on public opinion” or to “send any messages.” Cahill said that he handed down the sentence due to the “particular cruelty” Chauvin exhibited during Floyd’s death.
