Chinese Christian taken away to be interrogated about his church
According to a prayer request shared on Twitter, around noon time on September 28th, the local authorities took Niu Wenjie, a Protestant Christian, away over their charge he was in a “cult.” Brother Niu refused to sign the administrative punishment and the police decided to detain him.
The police took his biometrics, height, and weight, as well as his mug shot. During the investigation, he was asked about his church and the coworkers there, but Niu refused to answer. Given the detention center was full, he was released at night on bail.
Please keep the believers in Shanxi, China in your prayers.
Pro-abortion judge caught breaking the law
A federal judge, who fined undercover pro-life journalist David Daleiden $16 million for exposing Planned Parenthood’s aborted baby body parts trade, is facing accusations of illegal and unethical financial connections to a party in one of his cases.
The Wall Street Journal identified U.S. District Judge William Orrick of California as one of 131 federal judges who broke the law by hearing cases in which they or their immediate family had a financial interest. The law requires judges to recuse themselves.
The Center for Medical Progress, founded by Daleiden, documented that conflict of interest between Judge Orrick and Planned Parenthood.
First, while in a leadership role at a San Francisco family resource center, Judge Orrick helped open, run, and fund a Planned Parenthood clinic in partnership with the family resource center.
Second, Judge Orrick and his wife together donated significant financial resources to the partnership between the family resource center and Planned Parenthood.
Luke 12: 2 declares, “There is nothing concealed that will not be disclosed, or hidden that will not be made known.”
Matt Walsh calls VA school board members “child abusers”
Walsh’s remarks centered on a measure the school board approved in August, requiring all teachers and staff members to refer to children using their preferred pronouns. They also approved a policy to permit students to choose to occupy the locker rooms, restrooms, and sports teams primarily populated by the opposite sex.
WALSH: “I would thank you all for allowing me to speak to you tonight, but you tried not to allow it yet here I am now. You only give us 60 seconds, so let me get to the point. You are all child abusers. You prey upon impressionable children and indoctrinate them into your insane ideological cult, a cult which holds many fanatical views. But none so deranged as the idea that boys are girls and girls are boys.
“By imposing this vile nonsense on students, to the point even of forcing young girls to share locker rooms with boys, you deprive these kids of safety and privacy and, something more fundamental too, which is truth. If education is not grounded in truth, then it is worthless. Worse, it is poison.
“You are poison. You are predators. I can see why you tried to stop us from speaking. You know that your ideas are indefensible. You silence the opposing side because you have no argument. You can only hide under your beds like pathetic, little gutless cowards, hoping we shut up and go away. But we won’t. I promise you that.”
Scientists develop insulin that doesn’t need refrigeration
A team of scientists in India have developed a “thermostable” variety of insulin which eliminates the need to keep it refrigerated, reports SunnySkyz.com.
This development is being hailed as a scientific breakthrough.
They successfully introduced a matrix of four amino acid peptide molecules inside insulin molecules which prevented solidification of the insulin molecules when not refrigerated.
While traditional insulin needs to be kept at an ideal temperature of 36° to 46°F, this new variety would be able to withstand a temperature of up to 149 °F.
Boxer Manny Pacquiao retires: “I give all glory to God”
And finally, emotions ran high for outspoken Christian Filipino boxer and Senator Manny Pacquiao as he announced his retirement from boxing in a video posted on his Instagram and Facebook pages on Tuesday, reports the Christian Post.
Pacquiao, who became a pro-boxer in 1995, holds the record as the only boxer to hold 12 world titles in four different decades. Pacquiao is also the oldest fighter to win a world title and the only fighter in history to win titles in eight division weight classes.
He is finishing off his 26-year boxing career with 72 fights and a record of 62 wins, eight losses and two draws.
PACQUIAO: “God is good all the time. That’s why I give all glory to God Who made it happen. I always believed that in God all things are possible. Without Him, I am nothing. He is the one who gives me the ability and strength to accomplish all those things. The Lord gave me overflowing blessings. I could never thank Him enough.”
1 Corinthians 10:31b says, “Whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.”
