Boko Haram Muslims killed 50 Nigerians including newborn babies
On Sunday, Boko Haram, the Islamic terrorist group, unleashed another massive attack of indiscriminate killing in villages across northern Nigeria, Africa, resulting in 50 deaths, reports ThisDayLive.com.
A city councilor told Voice of America that the killings were unprecedented, saying, “We have never seen such kind of horror in our lives. These killers are Boko Haram. They stormed our village killing indiscriminately. It was extremely horrific! They went from one room to the other, a man and his children were killed, even newborn babies.”
Andrew Brunson: “There’s a price to following Jesus.”
Andrew Brunson, the missionary held in a Turkish prison for two years, spoke to the National Religious Broadcasters last week. He warned that American culture has becoming increasingly “hostile” to the Christian faith.
BRUNSON “There is a price to following Jesus. There’s a price in other countries. We hear about that. But increasingly, I think there will be a price to be paid here.
“The media, political, most of academia are becoming increasingly hostile to those who identify publicly with Jesus Christ and with His teaching. And I feel a sense of urgency in my heart for this generation and my country. I feel it especially for my children’s generation, that they’re not prepared to stand. I’m not sure that everyone in this room is ready to stand for Jesus without apology. We need to prepare ourselves now. We need to make decisions now about our commitment to Jesus.”
Do you remember the words of Jesus in John 15? “A servant is not greater than his master. If they persecuted Me, they will also persecute you. If they kept My word, they will keep yours also.”
Biden wins South Carolina; Buttigieg and Steyer drop out
Former Vice President Joe Biden won the South Carolina primary earning nearly 49 percent of the vote, besting Sanders who got nearly 20 percent — a winning margin of about 150,000 votes, reports NBC News.
BIDEN: “Thank you. Thank you. Thank you South Carolina. (cheers) Just days ago, the press and the pundits had declared this candidacy dead. Now, thanks to all of you, the heart of the Democratic Party, we just won and we’ve won big because of you. (cheers) And we’re very much alive!”
Millionaire Tom Steyer and former Indiana mayor Pete Buttigieg who earned 8 percent.
BUTTIGIEG: “Best way to keep faith with those goals and ideals is to step aside and help bring our party and our country together.”
Both of them dropped out ahead of today’s Super Tuesday vote. 1,357 of the nearly 4,000 total delegates are up for grabs today.
In Buttigieg’s view, the best way to bring the party together is to vote for Joe Biden over Bernie Sanders whom he believes is too far left.
Supreme Court might declare Obamacare unconstitutional
Is Obamacare on ice?
The U.S. Supreme Court has agreed to hear an appeal on President Obama’s signature 2010 healthcare law, reports Politico.com.
After Congress eliminated the tax on Americans who don’t have health insurance, the Supreme Court will decide whether the entire law has lost its constitutional basis.
Will Argentina embrace baby-killing?
After pro-abortion laws have been adopted in Europe, North America, and other post-Christian nations, such legislation is now creeping into South America.
The president of Argentina is set to propose a bill legalizing abortion within ten days, reports the Bueno Aires Times. If the policy goes through, Argentina will be the largest of South American nations to approve of child murder.
Thus far, Cuba, Uruguay, and Guyana have legalized abortion.
Also, in 2019, Northern Ireland, Rwanda, New South Wales (Australia), Angola, and the Congo liberalized their abortion laws as well.
Dow Jones bounces back
The Dow Jones Industrial Average recovered some 1,300 points yesterday in frantic trading, after a 12% slip last week due to coronavirus fears — the largest since the recession of 2008.
5 U.S. coronavirus deaths vs 46,000 flu virus deaths
Five Americans have died thus far from the coronavirus.
However, since October, the Centers for Disease Control estimates that there have been 18,000 to 46,000 deaths from the flu virus. And don’t forget, another 500,000 deaths from abortions and the use of abortifacients like the IUD.
Vice President Mike Pence demonstrated reverence for God and reliance on God, in leading a prayer time in his office, as he kicked off the White House Coronavirus Task Force.
Franklin Graham thanked the Vice President for his leadership and tweeted, “Let’s join them in asking God for His wisdom, direction, & help in the response to this virus.”
2 Samuel 23:3-4 records these words. “The Rock of Israel spoke to me: ‘He who rules over men must be just, ruling in the fear of God. And he shall be like the light of the morning when the sun rises, a morning without clouds, like the tender grass springing out of the earth by clear shining after rain.’”
Billy Graham Association sues U.K. venues that blocked Franklin
After all eight venues set up for Franklin Graham’s U.K. evangelistic tour pulled out, now the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association is initiating lawsuits.
The suits thus far include the Scottish Event Campus in Glasgow, the Fly DSA Arena in Sheffield and ICC Wales in the city of Newport, South Wales.
The Graham Association told Christian Today, “This disregard for principles of good faith and fair dealing, based on the mere suggestion that a person’s sincerely held religious views or statements are ‘hateful’ or would result in public disorder, should be very alarming to anyone who is genuinely concerned about diversity, inclusion and tolerance, let alone free speech and the free exercise of religious beliefs.”
40 Days for Life campaign has saved 16,700 babies
And finally, six days into the 40 Days for Life campaign, where Christians pray in front of abortion mills, 35 babies have already been saved so far. Praise God!
In total, 40 Days for Life claims that 16,700 babies have been saved over the past 12 years.
