Fulani Muslims kill Nigerian man after Christian dropped sister at train station
On October 5, Bartholomew David decided to drop his sister off at the train station in the Kaduna State in Nigeria, Africa according to Morning Star News. He then picked up a friend and was giving her a ride back to Kaduna, when they were accosted by Muslim Fulani gunmen. These gunmen stopped the car, pulled the passengers from the vehicle and dragged them into the bush, reports International Christian Concern.
According to the account by the female passenger, the gunmen then shot Bartholomew and left him in the bushes. Somehow the girl was able to escape and reported the murder to local Christians and the police.
Proverbs 21:15 says, “When justice is done, it brings joy to the righteous, but terror to evildoers.”
Andrew Yang: Don’t make 2020 election about Trump
In Tuesday night’s CNN Democratic presidential debate in Ohio, Andrew Yang, an entrepreneur, said that if the Democrats make the 2020 election about President Trump they will lose.
YANG: “We shouldn’t have any illusions that impeaching Donald Trump will, one, be successful or, two, erase the problems that got him elected in 2016.
“We’re standing in the great state of Ohio, the ultimate purple state, the ultimate bellwether state. Why did Donald Trump win your state by eight points? Because we got rid of 300,000 manufacturing jobs in your towns, where Amazon alone is closing 30% of America stores and malls, soaking up $20 billion in business while paying zero in taxes.
“These are the problems that got Donald Trump elected — the fourth industrial revolution. The fact is, Donald Trump, when we’re talking about him, we are losing.”
Democratic presidential candidates want to codify Roe V. Wade
In a dramatic break from the Democrats of yesteryear, today’s presidential candidates are disturbingly enthusiastic cheerleaders for the murder of pre-born babies.
Without exception, they championed the codification of Roe v. Wade into law by the legislative branch.
Only Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii thought there should be some protections of the baby in the third trimester of her development inside her mother’s womb. You’ll hear Gabbard’s voice at the very end of this audio clip.
KAMALA HARRIS: “People need to keep their hands off of women’s bodies and let women make the decisions about their own lives.”
COREY BOOKER: “And we’re not talking about the clear and existential threat in America. We’re in a state that has had two Planned Parenthoods close. We are seeing this all over this country, women’s reproductive rights under attack.”
AMY KLOBUCHAR: “I would codify Roe v. Wade and make it the law of the land.”
JOE BIDEN: “I would make sure that we move and insist that we codified Roe v. Wade. The public is already there. Things have changed.”
PETE BUTTIGIEG: “I’m not talking about packing the court just with people who agree with me, although I certainly will appoint people who share my values. For example, the idea that women’s reproductive freedom is an American right.”
JULIAN CASTRO: “I would also make sure that I appoint, as President, people who respect the precedent of Roe vs. Wade, that we codify Roe vs. Wade.”
ELIZABETH WARREN: “We now have support across this country. Three out of four Americans believe in the rule of Roe v. Wade.”
TULSI GABBARD: “This is often one of the most difficult decisions that a woman will ever have to make. And it’s unfortunate to see how, in this country, it has for so long been used as a divisive political weapon. I agree with Hillary Clinton on one thing, disagree with her on many others. But when she said ‘abortion should be safe, legal and rare’, I think she’s correct.
“We see how the consequences of laws that you’re referring to, can often lead to a dangerous place as we’ve seen them as their passed and other countries where a woman who has a miscarriage past that six weeks could be imprisoned because abortion would be illegal at that point.
“I do, however, think that there should be some restrictions in place. I support codifying Roe v. Wade, while making sure that during the third trimester, abortion is not an option, unless the life or severe health consequences of a woman are at risk.”
(Gabbard is polling at under one percent in the RealClearPolitics polling average, the lowest of the 12 candidates in Tuesday’s debate.
More than two decades of Gallup polling has found that 86 to 92 percent of Americans support protecting the pre-born baby in her mother’s womb during the third trimester pregnancy.)
Doctors won’t be forced to perform “gender transition” procedures
On Tuesday, a federal court handed down a huge victory for the conscience rights of medical professionals across America, thanks to the great work of the Becket Law firm.
In Franciscan Alliance v. Azar, an ObamaCare regulation threatened to drive Christian doctors out of practice if they would not perform so-called “gender-transition” procedures that violate their medical judgment.
Thankfully, Christian doctors can continue practicing their profession consistent with their conscience without being compelled to perform unnecessary, elective surgery like removing the healthy uterus of a woman who wants to pretend to be a man.
Pastor Brunson prays for President Trump @ Values Voter Summit
And finally, on Saturday night at the Omni Shoreham Hotel at the Values Voter Summit 2019, organized by Family Research Council, Pastor Andrew Brunson, the American pastor who spent 735 days in a Turkish prison before being released last fall, prayed for President Donald Trump
Here’s a brief excerpt of his 2-minute-long prayer.
BRUNSON: “I ask that You give the President supernatural discernment to know who is trustworthy and who is not. Bring into the light all deception and intrigue. Expose and reverse the plans of those who would harm President Trump and this nation.”
Proverbs 21:1 says, “The king’s heart is in the hand of the Lord, as the rivers of water; He turns it to any place He will.”

After 735 days in Turkish prison, Brunson prays for Trump @ VVS
Time now for a Worldview Special Report. I’m Adam McManus.
By Adam McManus (adam@TheWorldview.com)
At the Values Voter Summit in Washington D.C. this past Saturday night, Pastor Andrew Brunson, author of “God’s Hostage: A True Story of Persecution, Imprisonment, and Perseverance”, prayed for President Donald Trump before the Commander-in-Chief spoke for 75 minutes.
Pastor Brunson and his wife, Norine, spent 23 years as missionaries in Turkey before they were arrested in October 2016. Norine was released 13 days after their capture. Her husband was not.
During some of the darker moments of 735 days of imprisonment, he said he struggled with suicidal thoughts — especially the day after Christmas in 2016.
At one point, Brunson revealed that he even tested out a clothesline in the prison courtyard to see if it could bear his weight, should he have attempted to hang himself. He was concerned about falling away from his faith, reports FaithWire.com.
On “Fox & Friends” Monday morning, Brunson said this.
BRUNSON: “My story is one of brokenness. Many of the biographies I read, they have very strong characters. I was actually very weak in prison and broken, and then God rebuilt me. So, I’m hoping my story will be an encouragement to other weak people. I said in prison, ‘God, if you ever let me out of here, if I have a chance to speak, I will be open and honest about my brokenness.”
Brunson explained the title of the book — “God’s Hostage” — by saying he was, of course, a prisoner of Turkish President Recep Erdogan, but that his life was ultimately in God’s hands. We all thank God for President Trump’s leadership in pressuring the Turkish president to release Pastor Brunson.
This past Saturday night at the Omni Shoreham Hotel in Washington, D.C., with his right hand on President Trump’s left shoulder, Pastor Brunson prayed this heart-felt prayer.
BRUNSON: “Father God, I ask now for an impartation of Your Holy Spirit. May the fullness of the Spirit of Jesus rest upon President Trump, that he’d be anointed with wisdom and understanding with Your counsel and might, with knowledge and fear of the Lord.
“And accordingly, may President Trump not judge by what he sees with his eyes, or decide by what he hears with his ears, or lean on his own understanding. But may he recognize Your prompting, and move according to Your guidance.
“I ask that You give the president supernatural discernment to know who is trustworthy and who is not. Bring into the light all deception and intrigue. Expose and reverse the plans of those who would harm President Trump and this nation. (applause and shouts)
“In the name of Jesus, I break off all voices and influence that do not come from You, Father God. May Your truth and peace surround and reign in the White House. God, You have raised up President Trump to govern at a time when there is a resurgence of oppression. Only You, Lord Jesus Christ, can anoint him to have victories over strongholds and to establish justice for the needy. Give him strength and courage to persevere in the constant battle that surrounds him and refresh him.
“Father God, I see that you have such a tender heart for President Trump. Draw him close to You. I ask now for an impartation of hunger for You, so that he may love You with all his heart, soul, mind and strength and delight in knowing You. And if he came in whispering Your name, may he go forward, shouting Your name. In Jesus’ name and the name of my King, I bless you. Amen.”
1 Timothy 2:1-3 says, “I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people— for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. This is good, and pleases God our Savior.”
