Malaysian Muslims Need Islamic Approval to Profess Christ

The highest court of Malaysia ruled Tuesday that Muslims cannot officially convert to other religions, including Christianity, without approval from the Islamic Sharia Court system. 

The federal court denied the hearing of four Christian converts from Islam seeking to publicly identify with Christianity on their papers.

Please pray for the believers in Malaysia where converts from Islam are treated as law-breakers and persecuted by their family and community. 

Bible Translation Is Exploding

Wycliffe Associates, the Bible translation ministry, hopes to have a Bible in every language by the year 2025.

The ministry’s president, Dr. Bruce Smith, said interest in Bible translation has “gone viral” with 193 completed New Testaments in the last three years and over 600 new Bible translation requests for 2018.

Smith said, “This is at a pace – and at a scope around the world – that is really unprecedented in the history of the world.”

Paul wrote in Acts 13:47 “For so the Lord has commanded us: ‘I have set you as a light to the Gentiles, that you should be for salvation to the ends of the earth.’”

More Sexual Scandals in Non-Profit Aid World

Scandals are now sweeping the aid industry after a former United Nations executive claimed UN workers have committed an estimated 60,000 rapes in the last decade. 

Britain’s Department for International Development recently admitted up to four staff members were reported for sexual harassment last year.

Meanwhile, a top official with the UN Children’s Fund has stepped down after complaints from female employees about unwanted advances. 

And Peter Newell, former Children’s Fund consultant and UK anti-spanking activist, was sentenced to six years in prison this month for sexually abusing a boy in the 1960’s.

Galatians 6:7-8 says, “Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap. For he who sows to his flesh will of the flesh reap corruption, but he who sows to the Spirit will of the Spirit reap everlasting life.”

Oregon Governor Set to Sign Euthanasia Law

Sadly, the Oregon House Euthanasia Bill 4135 has passed both the House and the Senate and is on its way to the governor’s desk. 

Since they expect the governor will sign it, David Kilada of Oregon Right to Life told The World View they are most concerned about those who don’t have advocates who care about them.

“If someone in Oregon, after this bill becomes law, has dementia or Alzheimers, and they have people taking care of them who are responsible, who care about them, they should be fine. 

“But the concern has always been those people who are vulnerable, who don’t have advocates that care, who maybe have an heir that’s irresponsible, who just doesn’t want grandma or whoever to stay around. Those are the people that are at risk.”

Billy Graham Honored at U.S. Capitol Rotunda

A memorial service was held yesterday for the late evangelist Billy Graham who died last week, becoming the fourth private citizen and first religious leader to be honored at the U.S. Capitol.

President Donald Trump and congressional leaders attended. Trump honored Graham as “an ambassador for Christ who reminded the world of the power of prayer and the gift of God’s grace.”

After Billy Graham died, his son Franklin appeared on NBC’s Today show. Listen how he did not hesitate to share Christ.

“The Billy Graham that the world saw on television or saw on the big screen was the same Billy Graham that we saw at home. He wasn’t two people.  

“He spent his life telling people about heaven — how to get to heaven, he wrote books on heaven. Now he is in heaven and he would want me to tell everybody watching that if you put your faith and trust in God’s Son Jesus Christ that you can be in heaven too.

“So, my father is there and he would wish everybody watching will confess their sins and repent and believe on the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. That would be what he would want everyone to know this morning.”

Bill in South Carolina Calls Homosexual Unions a “Parody Marriage”

South Carolina calls homosexual marriage a “parody marriage.”

South Carolina legislators introduced the Marriage and Constitution Restoration Act this month, defining marriage between one man and one woman and calling homosexual arrangements a form of “parody marriage.”

The measure would “prohibit the state from respecting, endorsing, or recognizing any parody marriage policy.”

The bill also calls such parody marriages and self-asserted sexual orientation “part of the religion of Secular Humanism.”

20 States Sue to Overturn Obamacare

Twenty states, led by the Attorneys General of Texas and Wisconsin, sued the federal government on Monday to overturn Obamacare, arguing the new tax plan invalidates the whole healthcare law. 

This comes after Congress passed the Republican tax bill in December, eliminating the tax penalty for individuals not having health insurance. 

Scientists Show Evidence of First Stars, Ignore Creator

Scientists announced yesterday that they have detected evidence of what could have been the earliest stars of the universe, expected to have been massive blue giants formed from hydrogen and helium. 

No mention though was made of Genesis 1, “And God said, ‘Let there be lights in the expanse of the heavens…’ And it was so… And God made the two great lights… and the stars… And God saw that it was good.”
