1,000 Nigerian Christians killed this year

Over 1,000 Christians have been killed this year in Nigeria, Africa at the hands of Fulani Muslim extremists and Boko Haram, according to a report last month by the Humanitarian Aid Relief Trust.

The study estimates over 6,000 Nigerian Christians have been killed since 2015 and about 12,000 Nigerians have been displaced from their homes.

The report described the situation, saying, “Islamist Fulani militia continue to engage in an aggressive and strategic land grabbing policy . . . They attack rural villages, force villagers off their lands, and settle in their place — a strategy that is epitomized by the phrase: ‘your land or your blood.’”

Psalm 14:4-5 asks, “Have all the workers of iniquity no knowledge, who eat up My people as they eat bread, and do not call on the LORD? There they are in great fear, for God is with the generation of the righteous.”

Trump impeached by Democrats in 2 votes: 230-197 and 229-198

Yesterday, President Donald J. Trump was impeached.

For the third time in the nation’s history, the House of Representatives voted to impeach a sitting president, following a daylong debate on whether Trump violated his oath in pressuring Ukraine to damage a political opponent, reports NBC News.

Trump was impeached on two articles. The first vote, 230-197, was to impeach him for abuse of power and was almost entirely on party lines; it was followed quickly by a second 229-198 vote that the president obstructed Congress. The one-vote difference was Democrat Rep. Jared Golden of Maine, who voted yes on abuse of power and no on obstruction of Congress.

One Democrat, Rep. Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii, who is running for president, voted “present” on both articles. No Republicans voted against Trump.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi vs. President Donald Trump

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi made these remarks at a press conference afterwards.

PELOSI: “December 18.  A great day for the Constitution of the United States.  A sad one for America that the President’s reckless activities necessitated our having to introduce articles of impeachment.

“May I thank our six chairs for a long period of time had been legislating, investigating and litigating today that came to a culmination on the floor of the House for the Judiciary Committee under the leadership of Jerry Nadler of New York and the Intelligence Committee under the leadership of Adam Schiff of California, brought them, the Articles of Impeachment to the floor to a conclusion where they have passed.”

At a campaign rally last night in Michigan, a battleground state that Trump will have to win again to get re-elected in November 2020, the president didn’t seem to be concerned.

TRUMP: “Merry Christmas, Michigan. I’m thrilled to be here with thousands of hard-working patriots as we celebrate the miracle of Christmas, the greatness of America, and the glory of God. Did you notice that everybody is saying ‘Merry Christmas’ again? Did you notice?

“It doesn’t really feel like we’re being impeached. The country is doing better than ever before. We did nothing wrong. And we have tremendous support in the Republican Party, like we’ve never had before. But this sacred season, our country is thriving.”

Canada might criminalize helping minors renounce homosexuality

Canadian Independent Senator Serge Joyal introduced a bill last week to criminalize “conversion therapy”. Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s government plans to introduce a similar bill in the House of Commons next month.

The bill could be used to send Christians to jail for five years if they advertise or materially benefit from helping a minor to turn away from sexually perverted lifestyles or gender confusion.

If you are in Canada, you can sign the petition against the bill, linked in our transcript today at

Planned Parenthood to infiltrate 50 Los Angeles high schools

Planned Parenthood will infiltrate 50 Los Angeles high schools over the next three years with $6 million from taxpayer funding.

The new model that the abortion giant wants to replicate in other cities will allow them direct contact with students — without their parent’s knowledge –to offer so-called counseling and birth control options, and no doubt referrals for abortions off campus.

Isaiah 59:7 says, “Their feet run to evil, and they make haste to shed innocent blood; their thoughts are thoughts of iniquity; wasting and destruction are in their paths.”

Mormon money and Catholic clergy sex abuse making headlines

Several religious organizations have been facing controversy recently.

David A. Nielsen, a Mormon and former investment manager for his religious organization, filed a complaint with the IRS, saying that the cult — known as the “Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints” — has amassed $100 billion in donations that were meant for charitable purposes.

Meanwhile, seven New York survivors of sex abuse by Roman Catholic clergy sued the pope on Tuesday, claiming that the pope and the Vatican knew priests were molesting children and did nothing about it. On that  same day, Pope Francis announced the lifting of the “pontifical secret,” opening the door for the Vatican to share information with the police about sexual abuse cases.

Generous man blesses needy children in Section 8 housing

And finally, Adam Armstrong, who grew up poor in Virginia’s Shenandoah Valley, returned to his hometown of Harrisonburg over the weekend with a 26-foot truck packed with $12,000 worth of toys to children in the low-income, Section 8 complex where he once lived.

Armstrong told NBC News, “You see these kids and you hand them a baby doll, or a Nerf gun, a bicycle, two little boys throwing a football and you can’t put a price on the feeling that gives you. I consider myself very blessed.”

Acts 20:35 says, “It is more blessed to give than to receive.”
