Pakistani Muslims set up Christians who were sentenced to death

As The Worldview reported recently, a high court in Pakistan upheld the death sentence for two Christian brothers accused of insulting Islam.

The brothers have been in prison since 2011 for allegedly publishing a blog that blasphemed Islam.

There is no evidence the brothers created the website, but they suspect some Muslim acquaintances of theirs created it after they had a disagreement. Please pray for these Christians brothers as they appeal to Pakistan’s Supreme Court.

Pakistan is ranked eighth on the Open Doors World Watch List of nations where it is most difficult to be a Christian.

The rise of the European Christian political movement

The European Christian Political Movement made a presentation in Madrid, Spain last week hosted by one of its new member organizations.

Valeriu Ghileţchi, its president, said the political movement is “the only European political party that explicitly promotes Christian values in politics. Our movement brings together like-minded individuals, parties and organisations from all over Europe.”

Founded in 2005, the European Christian Political Movement has four Members in the European Parliament and 20 registered political parties.

2 Samuel 23:3 says, “He who rules over men must be just, ruling in the fear of God.”

Australian Christian affiliation dropped from 90% to 50%

The National Church Life Survey Research released findings from its survey on Christianity in Australia.

Christian affiliation in Australia has dwindled from over 90% in 1900 to around 50% in 2016.

However, the study found the percentage of Australians who frequently go to church increased from 18% in 2016 to 22% in 2019. It slumped to 16% in 2020 during the pandemic and bounced back to 21% last year.

Young adults had the highest church attendance rate at 32%, while 50 to 64-year-olds had the lowest attendance rate at 11%.

Hebrews 10:24-25 says, “Let us consider one another in order to stir up love and good works, not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but exhorting one another.”

Biden wants to suspend 18-cent federal gas tax

Yesterday, President Joe Biden asked Congress to suspend the federal gasoline tax for three months in the face of record-high gas prices. Biden also urged states to do the same.

The federal gas tax is 18.4 cents per gallon, and the diesel tax is 24.4 cents per gallon. State gas taxes are an average of 30 cents per gallon.

The move would cut $10 billion from the Highway Trust Fund.

The violent attacks by pro-abortion terrorists on pro-lifers

The Family Research Council has documented dozens of violent attacks on churches and pro-life groups since the Supreme Court leak of a decision that would overturn Roe v. Wade.

As of yesterday, the report noted 15 violent incidents against churches, 32 incidents against pro-life groups or pregnancy centers, and 16 other incidents of threats or disruptions aimed at pro-lifers.

Pro-abortion activists with Jane’s Revenge have taken responsibility for multiple attacks, calling it “open season” on pro-life groups.

The group’s name is a reference to the “Jane Collective,” an underground group in Chicago that helped mothers obtain illegal abortions of their babies prior to the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision.

Iowa Supreme Court: No “right to abortion” in state constitution

Last week, the Iowa Supreme Court ruled there is no right to abortion in the state constitution.

The decision overturns a 2018 ruling when the Iowa Supreme Court called abortion a state constitutional right.

Louisiana passes pro-life trigger law & bans mailing abortion pills

Meanwhile, Louisiana Democrat Governor John Bel Edwards signed two anti-abortion bills this week.

One bill bans abortions if Roe v. Wade is overturned with penalties of up to 10 years in prison and $100,000 in fines. The other bill bans mailing abortion pills to Louisiana residents.

Worldview listeners in North Carolina and Virginia speak out

We continue to get emails about this Christian newscast at

Gordon Goodman in Salisbury, North Carolina said, “What I like about The Worldview is also what I like about The Briefing and Wretched. I get the daily news as seen through a Christian worldview! I get biblical responses. And lastly, I get to see how the Lord works through the three of you!”

And Daylie Grace Moore in Dryden, Virginia wrote, “I just want to say ‘thank you’ for providing this newscast that supplies many people across the world with true news coming from a firm, Biblical perspective!  I am 20 years old, and live on a farm with my family. I listen to The Worldview while running, doing laundry for my large family, cleaning, cooking, canning produce from the garden, traveling, mucking the barn, and grooming our dogs! I love how it’s both thought-provoking and uplifting!  I especially enjoy the inspiring stories of heroism carried out by Good Samaritans.”

15 new Worldview donors gave $5,499.63

And finally, yesterday I urged 10 listeners to The Worldview to step up to the plate and give $4,000.  Amazingly, toward our goal of raising $76,000 by Tuesday, July 5th to keep The Worldview on the air, 15 Worldview listeners made donations yesterday.

Our thanks to Bob in Cosmopolis, Washington who gave $25 and Susan in Suffolk, Virginia who gave $50.

We appreciate the generosity of Rod in Markle, Indiana, Elizabeth in Decatur, Alabama, Margaret in Carrickfergus, Antrim, Canada, and an anonymous donor from Oxford, New York – each of whom gave $100.

We’re grateful to Todd in Pleasantville, Tennessee who pledged $10/month for 12 months for a gift of $120 and Robert in Boynton Beach, Florida who gave $250. Plus, six siblings —  Tirzah (age 8), Thor (age 10), Teshuvah (age 13), Tikvah (age 14), Tiveria (age 14) and Tevya  (age 15) in Pleasantville, Tennessee pooled their chore money, their birthday money, and their work at a store and in construction to give $254.63. Way to go kids!

And we praise God for Briana in Port Orchard, Washington who pledged $25/month for 12 months for a gift of $300, Emmanuel in Madison, Alabama who gave $500, Rachael in Stevens Point, Wisconsin who pledged $50/month for 12 months for a gift of $600, Knox in Sandpoint, Idaho, Chris and Marnee in Derry, New Hampshire, and an anonymous donor in Thibodaux, Louisiana – each of whom gave $1,000.

Those 15 new gifts total $5,499.63.  They outgave yesterday’s goal by $1,499.63.  Ready for our new grand total?  Drum roll please. (Drum roll sound effect) $54,388! (Crowd cheering)

That means we have 2 days left to raise $2,612 toward our $57,000 goal by tomorrow, June 24th.  We still need to find 1 Worldview listener to pledge $100/month for 12 months, 1 person to pledge $50/month for 12 months, and 3 listeners to pledge $25/month for 12 months.
