Judge Roy Moore Leads Senate Race in Alabama

Judge Roy Moore led the pack in yesterday’s U.S. Senate race in Alabama.

Despite President Donald Trump’s endorsement of Luther Strange in the race, Roy Moore secured a strong showing from evangelical, conservative voters. With 66% of the vote tabulated at press time, Moore was first with 41% and Strange came in second with 32%.

Since neither secured 50-plus%, they will face off in a September 26th run-off election. As few as 10% of the Alabama electorate turned out for the special GOP Senate primary to fill the seat left vacant by Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

Earlier this year, Judge Roy Moore was removed from his position as Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court for his opposition to homosexual marriage.

Two People Murdered While Walking into Church in Chicago

Two church-goers were shot and killed as they ascended the front steps to worship at the Chicago Friendship Baptist Church on Sunday, reports the Chicago Tribune. Emmanuel Fleming and Michael Swift were killed as they walked into the church by assailants in bandanas.

When the shooting began, Fleming yelled for his three young children to take cover inside the church. All three survived the attack.

Chicago is on pace to surpass its record 2016 total of 781 homicides. The city had already passed 400 homicides by late July.

Suspect in Charlottesville Rally Killing Had Nazi Sympathies as a Teen

James Alex Fields, the 20-year-old man arrested on suspicion of murder, malicious wounding, and hit-and-run charges in Charlottesville, Virginia over the weekend, harbored Nazi sympathies as a teenager according to The Christian Post.

Authorities said Heather Heyer, 32, was killed when Fields’ car slammed into a crowd of anti-racism activists confronting neo-Nazis and Ku Klux Klan sympathizers.

Both President Trump and Vice President Mike Pence have denounced the racism and the hatred behind this act of violence. Pence made these comments over the weekend during a trip to Columbia.

“We will not tolerate hatred and violence of groups like white supremacists, the KKK, and the neo-Nazis. These extremist, fringe groups have no place in the American debate.”

States Spread the Word About Abortion Pill Dangers and Reversal

Since 2007, Life News reports that over 300 babies have survived after their mothers used the abortion-pill reversal method.

The abortion-pill reversal works after a woman has taken the first series of pills for a chemical abortion. Sue Liebel of Pro Life Women’s Caucus told The World View that the abortion industry tries to deceive women into thinking that the RU-486 abortion is much “safer” than a regular abortion.

“You just take these pills and you go home. And you have an abortion in the comfort of your home. It’s supposed to be ‘so easy.’ When in fact it is so much more. The complication rate is so much higher. The pain is so much greater. The bleeding is so much more. It’s a sham. It’s a farce.”

Liebel said that states want to make women more aware of the complications from these chemical abortions.

“States are trying to get more and more information out about that as well as well as the fact that it can be reversed. So if she’s sold this idea that it’s going to be so easy and if she takes the first set of pills and then changes her mind, gets scared, regrets it. If quickly enough we’ve got doctors all over the country now that know how to reverse that.”

Texas Governor Signs Bill Stopping Insurance Funding of Abortion

Budapest, Hungary Honors Missionary Who Protected Jewish Students from Nazis

And finally, a courageous Scottish missionary is being honored in Budapest, Hungary for her effort to help Jewish schoolgirls escape Nazi oppression during World War II, reports Christian Today.

Jane Haining worked in the Scottish Mission School in Budapest from 1932 until World War II broke out. When Haining was ordered to return home to Scotland by Church of Scotland officials, she refused, stating, “If these children need me in days of sunshine, how much more do they need me in days of darkness?”

Haining was ultimately arrested in 1944 for protecting her Jewish students from the Nazis. She was taken to Auschwitz-Birkenau where she died.

1 Corinthians 15:58 says, “My dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.”

Prisoners in North Carolina Transcribe Books into Braille

Prisoners in Laurinburg, North Carolina have been trained and are now dedicating their remaining prison time to transcribing books into braille for blind students and adults, reports Good News Network.

According to WFMY, it can take anywhere from 8 to 12 months to learn regular braille. The team of prisoner translators has completed educational texts on science, math, and music.

Once a prisoner with this training completes his prison sentence, the likelihood of getting into trouble again and re-entering prison is only 0-3 percent because there is such a high demand for braille translation.

One inmate said, “It is kind of ironic that I do find myself now in a position where I can give back. I can really benefit myself and others.”

Christian Mother in Eritrea Dies in Jail

A mother of three named Fikadu Debesay, who was arrested in May during the ongoing crackdown against Evangelical Christians in Eritrea, Africa, has died in jail last week, reports Christian Times.

Debesay and her husband were arrested during the campaign of house-to-house raids targeting members of non-sanctioned churches. She was buried on August 10th.

Church in Atlanta Features 2 Chainz Inspired Decorations in Sanctuary

In an effort to “Make the Church Relevant Again,” church leaders took a marketing tip from Atlanta-based hip-hop star 2 Chainz himself and decorated their sanctuary with a miniature Pink Trap House, a pink stove, and a pink toy car in order to mimic his album’s cover art, reports the Atlanta Journal Constitution.

The Dream Center Church of Atlanta shared its one-of-a-kind service led by Bishop William Murphy on Facebook Live. As of Monday morning, the post has garnered nearly 30,000 views. 2 Chainz, born with the name Tauheed Epps, praised the service, writing, “I think it’s dope to be used by God in different ways.”

And that’s the World View in Five Minutes.

What kind of worldview do your children get? The vast majority of teens from Christian families are abandoning a biblical worldview, according to the Barna Group. Sadly, many parents do not realize that the curriculum they have chosen for their children actually conveys the wrong worldview of history, science, life’s purpose, and truth. Pass on the faith to your children with a distinctively Christian education.
