32 Christians Arrested in Eritrea

Tragically, government officials in Eritrea have arrested 32 Christians, including a newly wedded husband and wife at a wedding party conducted in the capital city of Asmara. Ten people in the wedding party were also arrested at the same time.

World Watch Monitor places the East African country as the sixth worst country in the world for persecution of Christians. 

USDA Issues New 4-H Guidelines Supporting Sexual Perversion

Christians have largely abandoned the Girl Scouts and the Boy Scouts for their promotion of sexual practices referred to as abominable in Scripture. 

Now, as of March 4, 2018, the United States Department of Agriculture has issued a new set of guidelines for the 4-H programs around the country. The department prohibits “discrimination of any individual based on gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, and/or sex.”

The National 4-H received over $10 million in grants  from the federal government in 2016, amounting to about 20% of its income. 

Woman in Ireland Who Survived Abortion Shares Her Story

A young woman who survived an abortion shared her story with a secular Irish newspaper.

Claire Culwell was a twin when her mother sought out an abortion. She says, “One of us was aborted, one of us survived.” But now, she’s forgiven her mother.

Culwell is encouraging Ireland not to repeal the Eighth Amendment to the Irish Constitution which affirms the right to life.

She told the Donegal Now newspaper that “An accidental or unwanted child still deserves life, even a child with disabilities.

“I was born two and half months early, weighed 3 pounds, 2 ounces, had dislocated hips and club feet. I had to wear casts on my feet, a harness and eventually a body cast. The abortion still affects me today.”

President Trump Claims Postal Service Is Favoring Amazon

In recent tweets, President Donald Trump has raised concerns that the federal government has unfairly favored Amazon with its shipping policy through the U.S. Postal Service. 

Trump claims that the government is compensating some $2.5 billion, thus unfairly favoring Amazon over the smaller online businesses and mom-and-pop stores. Trump also tweeted criticisms of the Washington Post, owned by Amazon founder, Jeff Bezos. 

God’s law instructs government officials in Leviticus 19  that “You shall not be partial to the poor or defer to the great, but in righteousness shall you judge your neighbor.” 

Supreme Court Rules Against David Daleiden

Sadly, the U.S. Supreme Court took the side of the National Abortion Federation, and against free speech, when it let stand a lower court ruling against pro-life activist David Daleiden.

The decision upheld the liberal Ninth Circuit Court’s prohibition on the release of videos that would have exposed more of Planned Parenthood’s alleged sales of aborted baby body parts for profit. 

Winnie Mandela Dies at 81

The South African political activist, Winnie Mandela, died in a hospital in Johannesburg early Monday morning.

The ex-wife of Nelson Mandela, she was known for her endorsement of tire burnings of live persons when she told crowds in 1986, “With our boxes of matches and our necklaces, we shall liberate this country.”

Winnie Mandela is dead at 81 years of age. 

Ecclesiastes 12: 13-14 says, “The conclusion, when all has been heard, is: fear God and keep His commandments, because this applies to every person. For God will bring every act to judgment, everything which is hidden, whether it is good or evil.”

Church in Mississippi Leaves United Methodists over Abortion and Homosexuality

A Methodist church in Louisville, Mississippi has decided to leave the United Methodist denomination over the denomination’s stance on issues like abortion and homosexuality.

The 180-year-old church plans to call itself First Methodist Church of Louisville, and according to an official statement, it will continue to be “a Christ-centered church that is faithful to the Scriptures and the theology of John Wesley.”

2 Corinthians 6:15-17 asks, “And what harmony hath Christ with Belial? Or what part hath he that believes with an infidel? And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord.”

Christian Movies Doing Well in Theaters

And finally, three Christian-oriented movies are playing in theaters right now across the country: I Can Only Imagine, Paul, Apostle of Christ and God’s Not Dead: A Light in Darkness.

I Can Only Imagine has grossed $55 million thus far, and after three weekends out, rates as the most popular Christian movie in seven years.
