Russia prosecuted 40 Christians for “illegal missionary activity”

Russian authorities prosecuted 40 people during the first half of 2020 for “illegal missionary activity,” reports Forum 18.

Most of the cases ended in a conviction and a fine, with at least 15 of the cases involving Evangelicals.

Authorities prosecuted multiple Christians just for “having conversations with passers-by, with the aim of disseminating their beliefs among people of a different religion and involving them in their faith.”

Sen. Ted Cruz to FDA: Classify abortion pill hazard to public health

About 90,000 babies in the U.K. were murdered in the womb since March after the government allowed women to commit abortions at home by taking two kinds of pills during the coronavirus pandemic.

Now officials are considering permanently legalizing at-home abortions.

Meanwhile in the U.S., Republican Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas along with 19 other senators signed a letter on Tuesday, calling on the FDA to classify the abortion pill, used to end 3.7 million unborn babies’ lives, as an “‘imminent hazard to the public health’ that poses a ‘significant threat of danger’ and remove this pill from the U.S. market.”

Many House representatives signed the statement, bringing signatures to over 90.

California pastor: America opposes COVID Tyranny

The county of Santa Clara, California is now fining North Valley Baptist Church over $50,000 for meeting and singing indoors in violation of coronavirus restrictions.

Pastor Jack Trieber called for an end to this harassment of his church, saying they would continue to meet.

TRIEBER: “We are not closing down this church. I hope you get this message. I don’t know what the consequences on your part is gonna be.  I know America does not want this to happen in her country and at this church.”

Psalm 14:4 says, “Have all the workers of iniquity no knowledge, who eat up My people as they eat bread, and do not call on the LORD?”

Trump to black pastor in Kenosha: Would you say a prayer?

On Tuesday, President Trump visited Kenosha, Wisconsin after the police shooting of Jacob Blake, an African-American, last week which sparked destructive rioting in the area.

The shooting is currently under investigation by state and federal officials.

Kenosha’s mayor is now seeking $30 million to rebuild property and businesses destroyed by last week’s rioting.

At one event he was leading in Kenosha, President Trump asked pastors  to pray.

TRUMP: “Pastors, would you like to say a prayer?

PASTOR: “Yes sir.”

TRUMP: ”I’d love to have because you are so highly thought of in the area. So please.”

PASTOR: “Father, we come to you in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ and we thank you for this time You have divinely ordained. Father, we ask You to forgive us all where we’ve strayed from Your ways and where we’ve not acknowledge Your Word. We ask You would continue to cause this nation to be one nation under God, that You alone are the One who can make us indivisible, and by being indivisible, there will be liberty and justice for all.”

Trump calls Black Lives Matter a “Marxist organization”

Acting Department of Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf revealed on Monday that the Department of Justice is investigating the leaders and funders of Black Lives Matter and Antifa in connection with recent rioting and violence.

This week, Trump labeled the destructive rioting in Kenosha, Wisconsin as “domestic terrorism” and called out Black Lives Matter as a “Marxist organization.”

James 1:19-20 says, “So then, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath; for the wrath of man does not produce the righteousness of God.”

Samaritan’s Purse is helping victims of Hurricane Laura in Louisiana

Hurricane Laura, a category 4 storm, hit Louisiana on Tuesday, August 25th with 150-mph sustained winds and a 12 to 21-foot-tall storm surge leading to the deaths of 6 people and causing $30 billion worth of damage. 910,000 people lost electricity during the storm. For some, it may not come back on for months. Plus, there is no drinkable water available in hard-hit areas.

Study: 98% of those who reject Biblical worldview favor socialism

And finally, a study by Arizona Christian University found that people with a Biblical worldview are more likely to prefer capitalism over socialism, oppose abortion, hold to a limited view of government, and support conservative fiscal and social policies.

Those who reject a Biblical worldview were just the opposite with 98 percent of them supporting socialism.

And the study found that 30 percent of voting-age Americans consistently embrace conservative views on fiscal, social, and governance matters, while 20 percent consistently embrace liberal positions.
