Singapore Billionaire Reveals His “Missing Piece”
If you believe the materialistic propaganda of movies like Crazy Rich Asians which glorify wealth, exuberance and excess, the key to true contentment is not found in a bigger bank account.
Just ask Philip Ng Chee Tat who is the wealthiest man in Singapore worth an estimated $8.7 billion. In an interview with his 19-year-old nephew Matthew Yao, Philip said, “All of us are broken. We all have a missing piece. For me, I discovered that the missing piece was God in Jesus Christ.”
Pro-Abort Groups Urge Post-Abortive Teenage Girls to Reject “Stigma”
A trio of abortion rights groups launched a program Tuesday urging teen girls and young women who have had an abortion to speak up about their procedure and to reject the “culture of stigma” about it, reports Christian Headlines.
The Youth Testify program is sponsored by Advocates for Youth, the National Network of Abortion Funds, and the 1 in 3 Campaign. The website hopes to shift the narrative about abortion among teens and young women by spotlighting the stories of 12 women – ages 17-24 – who had an abortion.
Sin, including the decision to murder an innocent baby, should indeed have a social stigma. It’s nothing to “testify” about.
1 John 4:14 says, “We have seen and testify that the Father has sent His Son to be the Savior of the world.”
And Paul declares, “Now this I say and testify in the Lord, that you must no longer walk as the Gentiles do, in the futility of their minds.” (Ephesians 4:17)
Pro-Life Columnist Threatened with Rape, Murder!
In other pro-life news, a Christian columnist is now in hiding due to multiple rape and death threats, reports The Christian Post.
Denise McAllister, who writes for PJ Media, tweeted last Thursday during the confirmation hearings for U.S. Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh that Planned Parenthood and Code Pink abortion activists were protesting because “at the root of abortion hysteria is women’s unhinged desire for irresponsible sex.”
McAllister also said, “Sex is their god. Abortion is their sacrament. It’s abhorrent as women have flung themselves from the heights of being the world’s civilizing force to the muck and mire of dehumanizing depravity.”
McAllister, a rape survivor, told PJ Media on Tuesday that her words elicited anger from many abortion activists on social media and soon violent threats started coming in.
Georgia Charter School Implements Paddling
A Georgia school’s decision to reinstate paddling has sparked a nationwide debate over corporal punishment, which remains legal in 20 states despite the trend against it, reports Christian Headlines.
Students from the Georgia School of Innovation and the Classics – a K-through-9 school – were sent home with forms asking parents for consent to paddle their children. About a third of the parents consented, according to WRDW-TV.
Listen to how School superintendent Jody Boulineau explained his thought process.
BOULINEAU: “In this school, we take discipline very seriously. There was a time where corporal punishment was kind of the norm in school and you didn’t have the problems that you have. It’s just one more tool that we have in our disciplinary toolbox.”
And when the TV station asked the superintendent what the parents who signed the consent form had to say, this was his response.
BOULINEAU: “Great. It’s about time. We’re so glad it’s happening again.”
Paddling would happen only on the third offense, with advanced notification of the parents, and in front of another adult witness. According to the consent form, the paddling would be limited to three licks and the paddle will be made of wood 24 inches in length, six inches in width, and three-fourths of an inch thick.
Students whose parents don’t consent to paddling will be punished via a 5-day suspension.
Proverbs 29:15 says, “A rod and a reprimand impart wisdom, but a child left undisciplined disgraces his mother.”
Pro-Golfer: I Am a Sodomite
Tadd Fujikawa, a 27-year-old professional golfer, confessed on Instagram that he is an unrepentant homosexual, the first men’s pro to do so.
While Fujikawa said, “I’m so glad that I came out. I can finally be the best version of me,” please pray for his repentance from sin and for God to save his soul. That’s when he’ll be the best version of himself.
Christian Movie Unbroken: Path to Redemption Opens Tonight
And finally, Will Graham, grandson of the late Billy Graham who portrays his beloved grandfather in the new film Unbroken: Path to Redemption, said the story of World War II prisoner of war Louis Zamperini made him emotional because it shows the tensions in marriage that he’s experienced and even witnessed in his grandparents’ relationship, reports The Christian Post.
Unbroken: Path to Redemption, which opens in theaters nationwide tonight and is based on Laura Hillenbrand’s best-selling book, Unbroken, covers the second half of Olympic gold medalist Louis Zamperini’s life when he returns home after being held captive at a prisoner of war camp in Japan. The true story picks up where Angelina Jolie’s 2014 epic Unbroken movie ended and shows his battle with PTSD and the toll it takes on his family.
The movie also details Zamperini’s profession of faith in Christ after attending a Billy Graham crusade that forever changed his life.

Hurricane Florence Slows Down, but Still Deadly
Faced with new forecasts that showed Hurricane Florence’s trajectory has a more southerly threat, Georgia’s governor joined his counterparts in Virginia and North and South Carolina in declaring a state of emergency, reports the Associated Press.
Florence’s nighttime winds were down to 110 mph from a high of 140 mph, and the Category 3 storm fell to a Category 2, with a further slow weakening expected as the storm nears the coast. But authorities warned it will still be an extremely dangerous hurricane.
New Planned Parenthood CEO Won’t Condemn Sex-Selection Abortion
On Wednesday, murder giant Planned Parenthood named Leana Wen as its new president to replace abortion activist Cecile Richards. In a bizarre statement, she called killing babies in abortions “lifesaving work”, reports Life News.
Wen has refused to condemn sex-selection abortions a practice in her native country of China which has led to the deaths of 70 million unborn baby girls simply because they were female. Beyond the staggering murder of baby girls, it’s left China with a gender imbalance that has produced everything from increased prostitution and sex-trafficking to abducting and kidnapping girls because men are having a hard time finding wives.
