Victory for a Sudanese Church
Since 2014, the government of Sudan, Africa has banned the building of new churches and demolished churches allegedly built on public property, reports International Christian Concern.
Authorities confiscated property belonging to the Sudan Presbyterian Evangelical Church and destroyed their building back in February. However, a court recently ruled that the authorities must return the property to the church.
The church’s pastor, Yahiya Abdurrahman Nalu, said, “We see this as a great step towards justice.”
Hungary’s Bold Stand for God-Given Gender Roles
Officials in Hungary banned accredited universities from teaching gender studies this week, citing their lack of economic viability and low enrollment numbers.
Christian Democratic members of government are at odds with such studies. The Prime Minister’s Chief of staff Gergely Gulyas said, “The Hungarian government is of the clear view that people are born either men or women.”
Jesus said in Mark 10:6, “But from the beginning of the creation, God ‘made them male and female.’”
Academia’s Love Affair with Sexual Perversion

Trump Upset with South African Murders, Seizure of Land from Farmers
South Africa’s ruling African National Congress announced this month they intend to amend their constitution to allow for land expropriation without compensation.
On Wednesday, Fox News host Tucker Carlson went on air to discuss reports of land seizures.
“We’ve got an exclusive investigation for you tonight, the President of South Africa Cyril Ramaphosa has begun—and you may have seen this in the press—seizing land from his own citizens without compensation because they are the wrong skin color.”
Quoting from Carlson’s statements, President Donald Trump tweeted on Wednesday, “I have asked Secretary of State @SecPompeo to closely study the South Africa land and farm seizures and expropriations and the large scale killing of farmers.”
The South African government responded on Twitter yesterday saying it “rejects this narrow perception.”
Tell California Governor Jerry Brown: Veto Anti-Christian Bill
California’s infamous AB 2943 bill passed the Senate last week, awaiting a final Assembly vote before going to the governor’s desk.
The bill would outlaw so-called “conversion therapy” for those dealing with unwanted homosexual desire.
Alabama’s Muddied Judicial Thinking on Abortion
On Wednesday, the three-judge panel of the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals struck down an Alabama law that would have banned the killing of unborn babies by dismemberment.
Although the court recognized the “gruesomeness and brutality of dismemberment abortions,” the judges cited Supreme Court precedent for why they “cannot forbid this method of abortion entirely.”
Proverbs 25:26 says, “Like a muddied spring or a polluted fountain is a righteous man who gives way before the wicked.”
Life Expectancy in America Down
Life expectancy in high-income nations around the world has been declining according to multiple studies, reports Reuters.
A severe influenza season outside the U.S. drove up deaths among the elderly in 2014-2015.
The studies also found a growing number of middle-aged deaths in the U.S. related to the opioid and drug-overdose epidemic. Deaths from alcoholism and suicide also increased.
Evolutionists at Odds with God’s Gift of Speech
For decades, evolutionists have taught that man’s capacity for speech is the result of a of couple genetic mutations.
However, a new study published in the journal Cell found the complexity of God’s creation can’t be so easily explained, reports World Magazine.
The paper’s co-author, Elizabeth Atkinson, said, “The situation’s a lot more complicated than the very clean story that has been making it into textbooks all this time.”
These scientists might consult Exodus 4:11, “Who has made man’s mouth? Or Who makes the mute, the deaf, the seeing, or the blind? Have not I, the LORD?”
