U.S. Supreme Court Sends Virginia Transgender Bathroom Case Back to Lower Court

Over 100 Conservative Leaders Petition Trump to Uphold Religious Liberty
Christians are still waiting for Donald Trump’s executive order on religious liberty.
Over 100 conservative leaders have signed a letter pleading with the president to stand for religious liberties especially when these freedoms compete with the perceived “rights” of homosexuals to licentiousness. Included on the list are representatives from Concerned Women for America, First Liberty Institute, and Students for Life.
The letter argued for protection of Christian ministries that receive federal grant monies, and adoption agencies that do not want to accommodate homosexuals, as well as Christian colleges and schools.
Disturbingly, the president has already affirmed an Obama mandate that refuses federal contracts with any Christian-owned company that opposes the sin of homosexuality.
Proverbs 14:34 says, “Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a reproach to any people.”
Polish Town Elects Homosexual Mayor

Liberals Gain Parliamentary Seats in Ireland’s Recent Election
Northern Ireland, the last nation in Western Europe to hold out for its ancient Christian values, is cracking.
The last election saw an increase in the party most likely to oppose God’s law (on homosexuality and abortion) to 27.9% of the seats in parliament. And the more conservative party lost seats for the third election in a row.
Matthew 24:12 says, “And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.”

“The Shack” Movie Gets Rotten Ratings
The much-touted major motion picture release of “The Shack” yielded a bare $16 million in box office receipts over the weekend, and it rated third in weekend attendance.
The secularist film reviewers on Rotten Tomatoes gave the New Age-Christian blended film a rotten 16% rating.
Christian reviews were mixed. Al Mohler called the book “undiluted heresy.” And the Focus on the Family’s Plugged-In review gave the movie a 4-star rating!
“Is Genesis History” Documentary Rates as Most Watched Film in the Nation
Did you miss the first screening of the new film “Is Genesis History?”
“Was there a global flood? A big bang? How did the earth become filled with so many amazing and diverse creatures? I’m Del Tackett, the creator of The Truth Project, and I’ve spent a year asking a wide variety of scientists to help me better understand the world we see around us.”
“Well, it was a story we all learned in grammar school: the Colorado River, over tens of millions of years, cut the Grand Canyon. Most geologists have jettisoned that idea. You can’t imagine a canyon enduring that long with erosion.”
“Time is not a magic wand that solves all the geologic problems of the world.”
For a one-night showing, the documentary rated the #1 most watched film in the nation.
You’ll have one more chance to catch it on the big screen tonight. Go to IsGenesisHistory.com and find a theater near you.
Members of a Church in North Carolina Report Physical and Emotional Abuse
A church in Spindle, North Carolina was the subject of an Associated Press investigation.
AP reports that 43 former members of the church, led by a female pastor named Jane Whaley, claim they have been physically and emotionally abused. Members of the Word of Life were allegedly subjected to hitting and choking, and being slammed into walls “in the name of the Lord.”
In the Apostle’s words, they “have the appearance of godliness, but deny its power. Avoid such people. For among them are those who creep into households and capture weak women, burdened with sins and led astray by various passions, always learning and never able to arrive at a knowledge of the truth.” (2 Timothy 3:5-7)
