Nigerian Muslims killed 70 Christians last week

Morning Star News reports Fulani herdsmen killed 70 Christians in central Nigeria last week.

Herdsmen also injured 100 Christians in the area recently, displacing thousands.

Local officials are calling for people to defend themselves given the national government’s inability to curb violence.

Please pray for our brothers and sisters in Christ in Nigeria, ranked ninth on the Open Doors World Watch list of nations where it is most difficult to be a Christian.  

Britain now urging caution about transgender foolishness for minors

Britain’s National Health Service is now urging caution in treating children pretending to be the opposite sex, saying it is generally a “transient phase.”

New proposals from the NHS “reflect evidence that in most cases gender incongruence does not persist into adolescence.”

The new approach comes after Tavistock Centre shut down. It was the only medical facility in the U.K. dedicated to offering puberty blockers and mutilating surgeries for people with gender confusion. 

California court supported Christian baker in “gay” marriage case

Last Friday, a California court ruled in favor of a Christian baker who refused to bake a cake for a homosexual wedding ceremony in 2017.

Cathy Miller owns Tastries bakery in Bakersfield, California and has faced years of litigation for her Christian beliefs about marriage.

In a 2017 interview, Miller said she could not violate her conscience or Scripture.

MILLER: “Our family are Christians we love everyone God created everyone there’s certain things that violate my conscience my conscience will not allow me to participate in things that I feel are wrong. That’s based on Scripture.”

1 Peter 3:15-16 says, “Sanctify the Lord God in your hearts, and always be ready to give a defense to everyone who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you, with meekness and fear; having a good conscience, that when they defame you as evildoers, those who revile your good conduct in Christ may be ashamed.”

Undercover pro-life activist ordered to pay $2.4 million to murder giant

Meanwhile, a U.S. federal appeals court ruled David Daleiden and other pro-life activists must pay $2.4 million in fines to Planned Parenthood for conducting an undercover investigation of the abortion giant. The investigation exposed Planned Parenthood’s harvesting and selling of baby body parts.

The Thomas Moore Society is representing Daleiden and will appeal the decision. Peter Breen, the vice president of the legal group, said, “This decision provides a roadmap for large corporations to shut down and bankrupt investigative journalists who would expose their wrongdoing.”

Proverbs 17:15 says, “He who justifies the wicked, and he who condemns the just, both of them alike are an abomination to the LORD.”

White House bracing to lose both House and Senate

Reuters reports the White House is bracing for potentially losing both chambers of Congress in the midterms next month.

Voter support for Democrats surged in the summer but is now stalling. Meanwhile recent polls show Republicans are gaining ground in Arizona, Georgia, Nevada, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.

In the last couple of months, ABC News and FiveThirtyEight reports that generic-ballot polls are moving toward Republicans. FiveThirtyEight also reports most candidates who think the 2020 presidential election was rigged are favored to win their races

Students’ reading and math scores slump

The National Assessment of Educational Progress released their latest report card for U.S. kids this week.

Student reading and math scores dropped to lows not seen since the 1990s.

The learning setback was evident across every state in the wake of COVID-19 policies that suspended in-person learning. 

Only 21% of Americans attend church weekly

And finally, a new Rasmussen survey found that most Americans say they are religious but only a minority attend religious services weekly.

Sixty-nine percent of U.S. adults consider themselves religious, up from 57% in June 2021.

Respondents also report how much they attend religious services: 41% rarely attend or never attend, 21% attend occasionally, 13% attend at least monthly, and 21% attend at least weekly.

Forty-two percent of respondents said the U.S. would be better off if more people attended religious services on a regular basis, while 30% said it wouldn’t make a difference.

The study found that married respondents were much more likely to say they were very religious compared with non-married respondents.
