Shooting in Pakistan Christian settlement kills 1, injures 4

On the evening of August 8, William was sitting outside his home in a Christian settlement of 28 families in southwest Pakistan while children played nearby.

Without warning, two masked men rode by and began shooting. William and four boys, ranging in age from 10 to 16, were critically injured in the shooting and taken to the nearest large hospital 15 miles away. Sadly, William later died from his injuries, reports Voice of the Martyrs.

While there is significant Taliban violence in the region, no group has claimed responsibility for the attack in the 96% Muslim country.

Hurricane Ian death toll rises to 70

With a death toll of 70, rescuers searched on Saturday for survivors among the Florida homes ruined by Hurricane Ian, reports the Miami Herald. Thus far, there have been 4,000 rescues.

Florida’s First Lady, Casey DeSantis, appeared on Fox & Friends and urged viewers to consider giving to the just-created Florida Disaster Fund which raised $12 million in just 24 hours.

She explained what they are doing with the money.

CASEY DeSANTIS: “We have 300 trucks in the affected areas, as we speak, and they are chock full of water, food, and supplies. We have two distribution points going out with the National Guard. So, people are getting the food and supplies that they need. We are working very quickly to ensure that they have that.

“Going forward with this fund, what we really hope it’s going to do is help people who have lost everything. They don’t know where to turn. Perhaps insurance doesn’t cover something for them. So, these funds could help repair roofs and just help them get back on their feet. Because we are going to be with the people in Florida for as long as it takes for them to get their lives back.”

MacArthur to CA Gov. Newsom: Your soul “lies in grave, eternal peril”

Pastor John MacArthur of Grace Community Church called upon Democratic California Governor Gavin Newsom to repent for his controversial re-election campaign that invoked Scripture in defense of abortion, reports The Christian Post.

The September 29th open letter quotes the Bible numerous times in response to the campaign earlier this month, which MacArthur said “shamelessly” misquoted Mark 12:31 for Newsom’s own political purposes.

MacArthur wrote, “You revealed to the entire nation how thoroughly rebellious against God you are when you sponsored billboards across America promoting the slaughter of children, whom He creates in the womb (Psalm 139:13–16Isaiah 45:9–12).

In Isaiah 45:11, “This is what the Lord says— the Holy One of Israel, and its Maker: Concerning things to come, do you question Me about My children, or give Me orders about the work of My hands?”

MacArthur added, “You further compounded the wickedness of that murderous campaign with a reprehensible act of gross blasphemy, quoting the very words of Jesus from Mark 12:31 as if you could somehow twist His meaning and arrogate His name in favor of butchering unborn infants.”

According to MacArthur, Newsom “used the name and the words of Christ to promote the credo of Molech (Leviticus 20:1–5). It would be hard to imagine a greater sacrilege.”

Stacey Abrams claims the heartbeat at 6 weeks is “manufactured”

Listen to this demonstrably false claim by Democrat Stacey Abrams, a candidate for Georgia governor.

ABRAMS: “There is no such thing as a heartbeat at six weeks. It is a manufactured sound designed to convince people that men have the right to take control of a woman’s body.”

Laurie Higgins, Cultural Affairs Writer for the Illinois Family Institute, said, “One wonders if Abrams conferred with Planned Parenthood. Until recently Planned Parenthood’s website said this about human fetal development at gestational weeks 5-6: ‘A very basic beating heart and circulatory system develop.’ That was then. This is now: ‘A part of the embryo starts to show cardiac activity. It sounds like a heartbeat on an ultrasound, but it’s not a fully-formed heart — it’s the earliest stage of the heart developing.’” 

Higgins concludes, “Planned Parenthood sophists desperately hope Americans are as scientifically ignorant as Abrams pretends to be.”

Pastor suspended from TikTok for saying ‘men can’t have babies’

Mark Driscoll, the outspoken Senior Pastor of Trinity Church in Scottsdale, Arizona, says he was briefly suspended from the popular short-form video hosting service TikTok for declaring on the platform that “men can’t have babies,” reports The Christian Post.

On Saturday, Driscoll tweeted, “What happens on TikTok when you say that men can’t have babies” alongside an image of a notice on his suspended TikTok account stating that he was prevented from posting due to “multiple violations” of the hosting service’s community guidelines.

The suspension of the account ended last Thursday.

In his reaction to the restriction by TikTok, Driscoll cited Romans 1:18 which says: “For the wrath of God is revealed from Heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who by their unrighteousness suppress the truth.”

Bros, all-homosexual romantic comedy, a flop

And finally, Bros, an all-homosexual romantic comedy, is a big flop, reports

The opening weekend’s train wreck was especially revealing in light of an enviable amount of publicity and marketing from the politically correct media, including a full segment on ABC’s The Bachelorette where the homosexual couple was oddly doling out dating advice to heterosexuals.  In other words, the American public has no appetite for such sexual perversion, especially including graphic scenes in this R-rated movie.

Focus on the Family’s noted that “as the movie opens, we’re treated to a flashback of Bobby, the lead character, talking with a movie executive who wants Bobby to write a homosexual romance for film, under the premise that homosexual and heterosexual relationships are essentially the same. Bobby rejects that notion—calling it a myth that the homosexuals created.”

Not surprisingly, Bros includes 60 profane words and the Lord’s name is taken in vain 23 times!’s conclusion?  “Bros is symptomatic of a broader issue: a culture increasingly unwilling to deny itself anything. … Bros understands, on some level, how shallow its fleeting hookups can be. But it refuses to reject them.”
