Nigerian Muslims killed 50 Christians last week
The Humanitarian Aid Relief Trust released a report warning that violence against Christians in Central Nigeria, Africa has displaced millions and “may rise to the level of ethnic cleansing or even genocide.”
Islamic militants generally carry out the violence and are rarely brought to justice.
Nigeria is the worst nation in the world for the number of Christians killed, according to the Open Doors World Watch List.
4 million Ukrainian refugees have fled
The United Nations estimates nearly four million people have fled Ukraine and over six million are displaced in the country since Russia’s invasion last month.
Last Friday, Russia said it will now focus on securing the eastern Donbass region in Ukraine. And on Tuesday, Russia said it will drastically reduce its military activity in Kyiv and Chernihiv. The military pullback comes as Ukrainian forces have stalled Russia’s advance.
Ukraine said it is willing to discuss being a neutral country and not joining alliances.
Christian doctor rejects transgender foolishness
The Department of Work and Pensions fired Dr. David Mackereth in 2018 for referring to people based on their sex instead of their “chosen pronoun.”
Ahead of the hearing, Dr. Mackereth said, “The judgment from two years ago said to Christians ‘you have to believe in transgender ideology.’ That is totalitarianism. It made out Christianity to be nothing, the Bible to be nothing. That cannot be allowed to stand.”
Psalm 35:1 says, “Plead my cause, O LORD, with those who strive with me; fight against those who fight against me.”

Upcoming pro-life Denver rally this Saturday
End Abortion Now, a pro-life group, is going further and helping to write legislation in 18 different states to fully criminalize abortion.

Proverbs 24:11 says, “Deliver those who are drawn toward death, and hold back those stumbling to the slaughter.”
Utah bans men from competing with women
Last Friday, Utah became the 12th state to prohibit men, including men pretending to be women, from playing in women’s sports.
Earlier last week, Utah’s Republican Gov. Spencer Cox vetoed the bill.
However, the state’s House and Senate came back and voted to override the veto.
Airlines want mask mandate to end
The airline industry is ready for the travel mask mandate to end.
Airlines for America sent a letter to the White House, stating, “It makes no sense that people are still required to wear masks on airplanes, yet are allowed to congregate in crowded restaurants, schools and at sporting events without masks.”
Airline CEOs signed the letter, representing American Airlines, Delta Air Lines, Southwest Airlines, UPS Airlines, and FedEx Express among others.
Gen Z least likely to believe in God
And finally, a report from the Survey Center on American Life found that Generation Z, those between the ages of 10 and 25, is the least religiously-affiliated generation yet.
The religiously unaffiliated make up 34% of Gen Z, 29% of Millennials, 25% of Gen X, 18% of Baby Boomers, and 9% of the Silent Generation.
Forty percent of Gen Zers grew up going to church, 42% attended a religious education program, 40% prayed with family at meals, and 21% read Scripture with their family.
Older generations had higher participation in each of those activities except family Scripture reading which remained low for each of the generations.
Proverbs 22:6 says, “Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.”
