Another anti-conversion law passes in India
Jeff King with International Christian Concern said, “We have seen an increasing trend within India where states pass anti-conversion laws, and in each of these locations, we have witnessed an increase of attacks against Christians.”
After the new law passed, local Christians and pastors reported being assaulted by Hindu radicals.
India is ranked 10th on the Open Doors World Watch List of nations where it is most difficult to be a Christian.
100 million people displaced by violence & human rights violations
The UN Refugee Agency reports a record 100 million people are now forcibly displaced worldwide by violence and human rights violations. That’s over 1% of the global population.
The number of displaced people approached 90 million at the end of last year, and has continued to grow this year during the war in Ukraine.
Violence in several countries drove the displacements last year including Ethiopia, Burkina Faso, Myanmar, Nigeria, Afghanistan, and the Democratic Republic of Congo. Each of these countries are on the Open Doors World Watch List.
Christian woman, who protected daughter, now freed from jail
Praise God! Lisa Miller is now out of prison.
As The Worldview previously reported, Lisa converted to Christianity after leaving an unbiblical lesbian relationship. During the relationship, Lisa had a daughter, Isabella, who was conceived through artificial insemination. In 2009, Lisa fled the U.S. with her then 7-seven-year-old daughter to protect her from the previous lesbian partner. Once Isabella turned 18, Lisa turned herself in to the U.S. authorities. She was expected to be sentenced in June to 12-18 months of prison on kidnapping charges.
However, a court gave Lisa’s sentence as “time served” this week, meaning the time she’s already spent in jail is enough. While Lisa’s criminal case is over, please pray for her as she now faces civil proceedings.
Psalm 54:6-7 says, “I will praise Your name, O LORD, for it is good. For He has delivered me out of all trouble.”
Oklahoma’s pro-life law bans abortion from fertilization to birth
STITT: “As governor, I represent all four million Oklahomans, and they overwhelmingly support protecting life in the state of Oklahoma. We want Oklahoma to be the most pro-life state in the country. We want to outlaw abortion in the state of Oklahoma.”
It’s the most restrictive abortion ban in the nation. It also includes a private enforcement mechanism based on the Texas abortion ban.
It features the exception of the life of the mother, and sadly, targets babies conceived through rape or incest, despite the babies’ innocence.
Corporation reputations: Trader Joe’s – good, Trump Corp. — bad

Companies with excellent scores included Trader Joe’s, The Hershey Company, Samsung, Toyota Motor Company, and Amazon. Companies with some the worst scores included Facebook, Twitter, TikTok, Fox Corporation, and The Trump Organization.
The Walt Disney Company was one of the top decliners, falling 28 ranks in the poll from last year. The drop comes after Disney pushed for sexually perverted lifestyles this year.

And finally, an elderly Virginia woman is back home after going missing for a week.
69-year-old Aletha Gee Walton went missing on May 15. Her family said she is experiencing the early stages of dementia.

That saved a wretch like me
I once was lost, but now am found
Was blind but now I see.”
