Hong Kong pastors: Communists are depriving our religious freedom

Evangelical pastors and leaders in Hong Kong wrote an open letter, signed by over 3,000 Christians, in the face of Communist China’s legislative takeover of the region.

After describing China’s new law as “depriving Hong Kong of freedom and human rights,” the letter affirms the Lordship of Jesus Christ and the power of the Gospel of the Kingdom.

Pastors then repented for being silent during government persecution of the church and stated that God’s Word, not the government, has authority over the church.

Despite Hong Kong’s uncertain times, the letter ends with the hope that “history will once again demonstrate that only [Christ] possesses the ultimate power to abolish and [raise up] kings and states.”

Acts 5:29 says, “We ought to obey God rather than men.”

Evangelicals in El Salvador now largest religious group

Evangelicals now make up the largest religious group in El Salvador at 44 percent, according to research by CID Gallup.

The study found 38 percent of Salvadorians identify as Roman Catholic, a 17 percent drop in just one generation.

Justice Dept.: Foster agency refusing to place kids with deviants right

The U.S. Department of Justice filed a brief with the Supreme Court this month, siding with a foster care agency in an important religious liberty case.

The case began in 2018 when the city of Philadelphia terminated its contract with the adoption agency Catholic Social Services over its refusal on religious grounds to put children in homes of homosexual couples.

The DOJ said Philadelphia’s actions reflect “unconstitutional hostility toward Catholic Social Services’ religious beliefs.”

Attorney General Barr: Antifa is instigating violent protests

During a news conference at the Justice Department last week, Attorney General William Barr said there have been extremist and even foreign influences behind the violence of the riots following the death of George Floyd.

BARR: “While many have peacefully expressed their anger and grief, others have highjacked protests to engage in lawlessness. … We have evidence that Antifa and other similar extremist groups as well as actors of a variety of different political persuasions have been involved in instigating and participating in the violent activity.”

Barr also said the Justice Department would do its part to ensure every American has equal protection under the law.

BARR: “I believe that police chiefs and law enforcement officials and leaders around the country are committed to ensuring that racism plays no part in law enforcement and that everyone receives equal protection of the laws.”

James 1:19-20 says, “Let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath; for the wrath of man does not produce the righteousness of God.”

President Trump: “You don’t burn churches in America!”

President Donald Trump issued a strong warning over Twitter last week. And he said it in all caps. He said, “YOU DON’T BURN CHURCHES IN AMERICA!”

The statement comes after Trump visited St. John’s Episcopal Church across the street from the White House which had just been vandalized and burned by rioters.

Joe Biden: The official Democratic presidential nominee

Following Tuesday’s primaries, former Vice President Joe Biden officially won the Democratic presidential nomination.

Biden now faces off against President Trump for the November presidential elections.

Biden supports codifying pro-abortion Roe v. Wade into federal law and restoring federal funding to abortion giant Planned Parenthood. The Democratic presidential candidate also promotes a plan to support and advance the homosexual community at the expense of religious liberty.

2 Samuel 23:3 says, “He who rules over men must be just, ruling in the fear of God.”

Dramatically fewer Democrats identify as Christians

A new Pew Research study found that 52 percent of Democratic voters identify as Christians, down from 73 percent in 2008.

Meanwhile, the number of Democratic voters who are religiously unaffiliated has nearly doubled from 18 percent to 38 percent over this period.

NYC reports no new COVID deaths

In God’s providence, New York City reported no new deaths from the coronavirus last Wednesday, a first since March 12 and a big turning point for the city that was once at the epicenter of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Global coronavirus cases have exceeded seven million with over 400,000 deaths and 3.7 million recoveries.
