Nigerian Muslims killed 70 people, displaced 20,000 last 2 weeks

Over the past two weeks, Nigerian Muslim militants have killed 70 people, destroyed 15 villages, and displaced 20,000 people, reports Christian Today. The attacks were on the primarily Christian Irigwe ethnic group.

This is nothing new for Christians in Nigeria as Muslims have waged an all-out war to root out Christians from the area. A new report by the International Society for Civil Liberties and Rule of Law found at least 43,000 Nigerian Christians have been killed between July 2009 and July 2021.

Please pray for our brothers and sisters in Christ in Nigeria who constantly face severe persecution.

Romans 8:35-37 asks, “Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? As it is written: ‘For Your sake we are killed all day long; We are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.’ Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.”

Hundreds of thousands of Frenchmen march against COVID Tyranny

Hundreds of thousands of people marched across France last Saturday to continue a fourth week of protests against COVID-19 health passes.

The new passes will be required for people to enter many public venues.

Other countries have instituted similar health passes, including Italy, Denmark, Austria, and Germany. Thousands of people also protested in Italy against the passes.

Court: Biden can’t force Christian doctors to kill babies

On Monday, a federal court ruled against a disturbing Biden administration policy that would force doctors and hospitals to participate in abortions under Obamacare.

The ruling also protects Christian healthcare providers from participating in procedures for people pretending to be the opposite gender.

The court ruled that the Biden administration’s policy “burdens Christian Plaintiffs’ religious exercise in clear violation of [the Religious Freedom Restoration Act].”

NY Democrat Governor Cuomo resigns over sexual harassment

Democrat New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced his resignation on Tuesday.

CUOMO: “Wasting energy on distractions is the last thing that state government should be doing. I cannot be the cause of that. I love New York, and I love you. Everything I have ever done has been motivated by that love. I would never want to be unhelpful in any way.

“Given the circumstances, the best way I can help now is if I step aside and let government get back to governing, and therefore that’s what I’ll do, because I work for you. Doing the right thing is doing the right thing for you. Because as we say, it’s not about me. It’s about we.

Kathy Hochul, my Lieutenant Governor, is smart and competent. This transition must be seamless. We have a lot going on. I’m very worried about the Delta variant, and so should you be. But she can come up to speed quickly. My resignation will be effective in 14 days.”

Cuomo faced impeachment by the Empire State legislature after New York Attorney General Letitia James released a 168-page report on August 3rd which documented that the governor sexually harassed 11 women.

James 1:15 warns, “After desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, gives birth to death.”

Senate passed $1 trillion infrastructure bill

On Tuesday, the U.S. Senate passed the bipartisan $1 trillion Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act. The bill heads to the House of Representatives next.

The Senate is now considering a $3.5 trillion spending package as well.

The Congressional Budget Office estimates the trillion dollar package will add $256 billion in budget deficits over the next decade.

However, prime time viewership of the Olympics was down 42% this year compared with the Rio Games in 2016.

GenZ Youth: More likely to be disengaged from the Bible

The State of the Bible 2021 report released a new section on Gen Z youth, those under age 18.

Gen Z youth were more likely to be disengaged from the Bible compared with Gen Z adults or Millennials.

Despite last year’s turmoil, Gen Z youth were more likely than other generations to say they decreased their Bible reading. Ninety percent of Gen Z youth said they were non-practicing Christians or non-Christians.

Christian singer Sean Feucht: Portland Antifa member came to Christ

And finally, as previously reported on The Worldview, members of the left-wing group Antifa attacked Christians at a prayer event in Portland, Oregon over the weekend.

In response, hundreds of Christians gathered in the same spot the next day to worship the Lord.

Christian singer Sean Feucht lead the event and reported that one Antifa member came to Christ. He wrote, “One member of Antifa, who came to disrupt our service, was SAVED, giving his life to Jesus! It’s a time for a BOLD & BELIEVING church! God has not given us a Spirit of fear, but of POWER & GRACE! The Church is on the move and the gates of hell will not prevail against it!”

Luke 15:7 says, “I say to you that likewise there will be more joy in Heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine just persons who need no repentance.”
