Over the weekend, a Hindu mob attacked a Pentecostal church in Kachana, India, destroying property, stripping the women, and beating church attendees. These persecutions​ follow the recent refusal on the part of the Indian government to provide visas to members of the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom, according to Christian Headlines. Father Thomas Reese of the delegation told The World View that there is a political agenda behind the attacks: “The problem that we’ve had in India is that more and more religious conflict is being stirred up for political reasons. This is the way of getting out the vote—this is the way of pushing a certain agenda.”

Christians on the island of Mindanao in the southern Philippines are being targeted by Islamic militants. Reports indicate 15 killed just last year, and militants burned a refugee center on February 24th, injuring five people, including two children. Residents in Mindanao have filed a complaint with the United Nations against the Filipino government for its laxity ​in terms of​ controlling the violence.

“It is more difficult than death.” That’s the report from one young woman kidnapped by ISIS at 21 years of age. The Quilliam Foundation has produced a 100-page document, detailing the horrors of ISIS in its starkest terms—mass raping of children, sex slavery, child soldiering, and 31,000 pregnant women, children to be raised for Jihad.

Never forget what God told the tyrannical Phraoah, “But for this purpose I have raised you up, to show you my power, so that my name may be proclaimed in all the earth” (Exodus 9:16​).

A Fox News report announced the capture of the director of ISIS’s chemical weapons program by U.S. Special Forces. It was ​the​ first major success for the small team of Delta Force operatives in Iraq.

After refusing to support homosexual weddings, the owners of a bakery in Longview, Texas, continue to receive threats from angry callers. David and ​Edie ​Delorme told the Christian Post they are receiving threats against their children and threats to burn down their home, after homosexuals targeted their business in February.

As Jesus said, “Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you.”

Carly Fiorina announced her endorsement of Ted Cruz on Wednesday morning. The former Republican candidate called Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton two sides of the same coin: “Hillary Clinton has made millions of dollars selling access and influence from the inside, and Donald Trump has made billions of dollars buying people like Hillary Clinton. They are the system. They will not reform it.”

Meanwhile, Hollywood actor Jon Voight announced his support for Donald Trump, calling the candidate funny, playful, colorful, and honest. On the other side, World Net Daily CEO Joseph Farah has announced his support for Ted Cruz. Farah called Cruz “principled, sophisticated and a solid conservative whose understanding of and commitment to the Constitution is unshakeable.”

Two bills are being considered in the Oklahoma Senate that would virtually eliminate abortion in the state. Republican Senate leadership opposes one of the bills for its reference to life beginning at conception. The other bill will revoke the ​medical license from a doctor performing an abortion, except in the case of ectopic pregnancies.

Queen Elizabeth remains staunchly opposed to homosexual marriage despite the fact that England approved the practice in 2014. According to an article in the UK Daily Mail, the Queen admits she can do nothing about it except “advise and warn.”

Gary Smalley, the author of Making Love Last Forever and The ​DNA of Relationship​s​ went to be with the Lord last Sunday, as his family read the blessing contained in Numbers 6: “The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make ​H​is face to shine upon you and be gracious to you.​”

Dogs are incredibly good at determining low blood sugar level for diabetics. The Washington Post tells of Jedi, a black lab trained to monitor blood levels. Jedi became concerned when the blood sugar levels of seven-year-old Luke Nutted fell well below safe range. The dog woke up Luke’s mom and saved the boy’s life that night. And scientists aren’t quite sure how the dog does it.

All things wise and wonderful, the Lord God made them all.

And that’s the World View in Five Minutes.
