India’s radical Hindus close 100 churches, attack 1,000 Christians

India’s Hindu nationalist Bharatiya Janata Party is leading the persecution against the estimated 65 million Christians in the country of 1.4 billion people.

New government measures this month in the former state of Jammu and Kashmir in northern India make it illegal for Christians to gather in groups of four or more people while Hindu extremists are increasing their personal attacks on Christians.

Over the last two years, Christians in India suffered over one thousand violent attacks in 24 out of the 29 states in the country. Plus,  100 church buildings were closed last year.

Revelation 12:11 says, “And they overcame [the Devil] by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death.”

Argentinian Evangelical Christians nearly double

The number of evangelical Christians in the historically Roman Catholic country of Argentina nearly doubled over the last decade from 9 percent in 2008 to 15.3 percent in 2019. That’s according to the government’s Second National Survey on Beliefs and Religious Attitudes.

Participation in Roman Catholicism has fallen from over 90 percent in the 1960s to 62.5 percent this year while those who identify with no religion has increased from 10 percent in 2008 to 18.9 percent now.

Evangelicals were most likely to attend church regularly and oppose the murder of unborn babies.

President Trump signs two bills supporting Hong Kong autonomy

President Donald Trump signed two bills into law on Wednesday, supporting Hong Kong’s democracy protests.

The laws would protect Hong Kong’s autonomy from China, ban the sale of munitions like tear gas to Hong Kong police, and threaten sanctions against China for human rights abuses.

This follows a landslide victory by Hong Kong pro-democracy voters, taking 17 out of 18 district councils over the weekend.

China warned of firm countermeasures to the new U.S. laws, but thousands of Hong Kong protesters participated in a “Thanksgiving” rally to give thanks for America’s support.

Dem pres. Candidates: Codify Roe v. Wade, repeal Hyde Amendment

The New York Times surveyed sixteen of the  2020 Democratic presidential candidates, including Joe Biden, Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders and Pete Buttigieg.

The survey found they all agreed on codifying Roe v. Wade, repealing the Hyde Amendment (which bans federal funding of abortion in most cases), and preserving Planned Parenthood funding.

Most candidates also agreed on forcing private insurers to cover contraception and/or abortion.

Wisdom says in Proverbs 8:36, “All those who hate Me love death.”

Abortions at lowest level since Roe v. Wade!

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announced this week that new data shows 2016 had the lowest total abortion number, rate, and ratio to live births in the U.S. since Roe v. Wade in 1973.

Based on 2016 data, the most recent year available, there were 623,471 abortions, a 2.3% decline from 2015. Over the same period, the abortion rate fell to 11.6 abortions per 1,000 women of reproductive age, and the ratio dropped to 186 abortions per 1,000 live births.

Please pray for the complete end of this atrocity.

Chick-fil-A’s funding of pro-abortion, pro-homosexual groups

Chick-fil-A’s known support for organizations with anti-Christian values is growing after coming under fire for supporting the pro-abortion and pro-homosexual group Covenant House as well as Navigator, Canada’s leading homosexual lobbying firm.

The 2017 IRS files show the ostensibly Christian fast food chain donated to the pro-abortion YWCA and Pace Center for Girls as well as the pro-homosexual Chris 180 and Junior Achievement.

Most shocking is Chick-fil-A’s donation to the Southern Poverty Law Center, a group devoted to labeling Christian and conservative organizations as “hate groups,” including Chick-fil-A!

Proverbs 25:26 says, “A righteous man who falters before the wicked is like a murky spring and a polluted well.”

Three prisoners, wrongly sentenced, released after 36 years

And finally, three Baltimore men — Andrew Stewart, Alfred Chestnut, and Ransom Watkins — praised God after they were exonerated and released on Monday after serving 36 years in prison on murder charges.

Findings of false witness testimony triggered the exoneration after Chestnut, 52, had kept pushing for a review of the case.

Stewart led Bible classes in prison, telling The Washington Post he told himself, “If this is where God wants me to rest my head for the rest of my life, this is where I’m going to serve Jesus Christ for the rest of my life.”

Stewart and his mother praised God after the exoneration.

STEWART: “I really don’t have the words to say, but I just thank God.”

MOTHER: “This is the first time I’ve been able to hug my son in about 20-some years. This is wonderful. God bless, God is good all the time, not sometimes, but all the time.”

Over 80 U.K. candidates for Members of Parliament have signed the Both Lives Pledge by the Right to Life campaign, promising their support to stop sex-selection abortion, to reduce the upper time limit for abortions, and to oppose pregnancy and maternity discrimination.

A Savanta ComRes survey found well over two-thirds of the population support such policies.
