Narendra Modi wins re-election in India, but anti-Christian BJP party loses

India posted results from its general election on Tuesday. With nearly a billion voters, it’s the largest election in the world.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi secured a third term, extending his hold on power since 2014.

However, his Hindu nationalist party, the BJP, failed to win a majority for the first time in a decade. Over that period, Modi has overseen the suppression of religious minorities like Christians and Muslims in the country. 

Christians in India have been praying for a change

International Christian Concern reports Christians in India have been praying for a change in government for years.

It remains to be seen how the recent elections will affect Christians. Edwin Anand, a bishop in central India, warns that churches should brace for more persecution under a third Modi term. 

Christians in India have faced over 600 violent attacks each year since 2021. The country is ranked 11th on the Open Doors’ World Watch List of nations where it is most difficult to be a Christian. 

Europeans electing new members of European Parliament

People across Europe begin voting today in the world’s second-largest election. About 400 million Europeans will be selecting new members of the European Parliament. 

Typically, the two largest parliamentary groups have been the center-right European People’s Party and the center-left Socialists and Democrats. 

However, right-wing parties are gaining popularity. France 24 reports a coalition of conservative and right-wing groups could be on track to hold a majority for the first time.

Daniel 2:21 says God “changes the times and the seasons; He removes kings and raises up kings; He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to those who have understanding.”

Texas Supreme Court affirms ban of abortion

In the United States, the Supreme Court of Texas unanimously rejected a challenge to the state’s pro-life laws.

Between several laws, Texas outlaws nearly all abortions. The challenge sought to allow abortion in more cases like babies with disabilities. 

The state’s abortion ban went into effect after the U.S. Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade in June 2022. Texas reported 67 abortions the following month and three abortions the month after that. The year before, the Lone Star state reported nearly 6,000 abortions in just one month. 

21% of Protestant pastors support homosexual faux marriage

Lifeway Research reports that support for faux homosexual marriage is thankfully slowing down among pastors.

In 2010, 15% of Protestant pastors supported the unbiblical practice. That percentage increased to 24% in 2019, but dropped back down to 21% today.

Pastors from mainline denominations were the ones who drove the increase in support for celebrating people living in vile passions. Meanwhile, Evangelical pastors have consistently opposed it since 2010.

Sexual perverts are especially proud of their rebellion this month

Mainstream American culture is celebrating sexually perverted lifestyles this month. 

Over the weekend, 21 out of 32 National Football League teams joined the celebration on social media. 

However, 11 of the football teams did not acknowledge so-called pride month. Those teams include the Pittsburgh Steelers, Cleveland Browns, Cincinnati Bengals, Tennessee Titans, Kansas City Chiefs, Denver Broncos, Dallas Cowboys, Green Bay Packers, New Orleans Saints, and Atlanta Falcons.

Exodus 23:2 says, “You shall not follow a crowd to do evil; nor shall you testify in a dispute so as to turn aside after many to pervert justice.”

Boeing sent astronauts to International Space Station

Boeing sent astronauts to space for the first time yesterday. 

NASA astronauts Butch Wilmore and Suni Williams are headed for the International Space Station aboard Boeing’s new Starliner spacecraft. 

The program faced years of delays and technical problems. 

Since 2020, Elon Musk’s SpaceX has been providing NASA astronauts transportation to the International Space Station. 

Colorado Christian University secures golf national title

Colorado Christian University won the Division II Men’s Golf Championship late last month, defeating the University of North Georgia. It’s the first national title for the Christian university. 

Head Coach Mark Hull said their goal is to “represent Christ in everything we do . . . we’re excited to have this platform to do it.” 

Adam Duncan led the Colorado Christian University Cougars to victory. Coach Hull recalled the final drive, saying, “Up by one stroke headed to the 18th hole, Adam Duncan did exactly what he needed to do, getting onto the green in two. With the Cougar faithful holding their breath in anticipation, Duncan clearly stepped up and sunk a beautiful putt from distance to birdie the hole and clinch the national championship for his team.”
