Most of the news items below illustrate the challenges Christians will face in a world that's growing increasingly hostile to Biblical values. We hope the information will encourage you to stand firm in God's Truth -- no matter how great the pressure to compromise.

Please pray for

  Persecuted Christians

God's Word  ~  Trusting God  ~  Topical Scripture List  ~  Names of God  ~  Chronologies

"Show me Your ways, O Lord; teach me Your paths. Lead me in Your truth and teach me, for You are the God of my salvation. On You I wait all the day." Psalm 25:4-5
 

"Please pray for God's people around the world!  As in Europe,  Christian faith is  fading in America, while persecution is spreading in many other parts of the world. Countless Christians would rather face death than deny their beloved Lord!

 

Whose Rights?  Muslims demand that ‘offensive’ crosses be removed… from Catholic school: "It is only the latest in an endless series of demands for Sharia Law adherence by Muslims in America. The complaint to the Washington, D.C. Office of Human Rights, filed by a leftist professor from rival George Washington University, says there are 'too many crosses in every room of Catholic University' which is a 'human rights violation that prevents Muslim students from praying there.'

     "Law School Professor John Banzhaf takes the Catholic institution to task for acting 'probably with malice' against Muslim students in a 60-page complaint that cites 'offensive' Catholic imagery all over the Catholic school, which he says hinder Muslims from praying."

 

Moral Corruption. Obama to 5-Year-Old Gay Marriage Advocate: 'Couldn't Agree More!': "Five-year-old Yasmeen Faruqui didn't feel like doing her homework. She insisted she wanted to write to President Obama instead. And he wrote back.

      "'Please stop war for our world, instead have a meeting,' reads Yasmeen's handwritten note....  'Please give a speech to tell everyone they can marry who they want.'

     "Tell your niece I really like her letter. Couldn't agree more!" the commander-in-chief replied Friday on Twitter....

     "Yasmeen, who's set to participate in a family member's same-sex wedding ceremony this fall, was bothered when her playmates insisted 'boys can't marry boys.' 'I don't think that's wrong,' she told her mom." See Global War on Christian Values

The War is real.  Obama's Media supporters growing nervous about ISIS: "Liberals are clearly disturbed by what they’re seeing, and perhaps they’re starting to worry that the mess in the Middle East will irreparably tarnish Obama’s legacy. ...they’re trying to get his attention and let him know he can’t spin ISIS off the front pages by chirping that his non-war strategy is working out great, and pretending 'climate change' is the great enemy faced by the U.S. military, while the Islamic State is knocking over cities in three different countries." See Washington's Farewell Address

 

Hillary's own words.  Quote of the day, no, of the week, make that a month, yet it probably is quote of the year! No, DECADE: “My accomplishments as Secretary of State? Well, I'm glad you asked! My proudest accomplishment in which I take the most pride, mostly because of the opposition it faced early on, you know… the remnants of prior situations and mindsets that were too narrowly focused in a manner whereby they may have overlooked the bigger picture and we didn’t do that and I’m proud of that. Very proud. I would say that’s a major accomplishment.”

     "Could someone please tell me what she just said? And she is running for President?"

 

Memorial Day LinksThey are worth remembering!

 

Transforming America. Democrats call for 'flood' of Muslims to U.S.: "...14 Democrat senators has written a letter to President Obama urging him to 'dramatically increase' the number of Syrian refugees being resettled into American cities and towns. They say the U.S. needs to take in at least 65,000 Syrians as permanent refugees over the next year-and-a-half....

     "More than 3.5 million Syrians are registered with the United Nations as refugees, and the U.N. wants to assign about 350,000 of them to so-called 'third-party countries.'....  Of the 843 Syrians resettled in the U.S. since the start of the Syrian civil war, 92 percent have been Muslim and about 7 percent Christian. Syria’s overall population is 90 percent Muslim and close to 10 percent Christian.

     “The vast majority of these refugees are women and children, including two million children..."

 

Global Agenda. Foundations plan to pay news media to cover radical UN agenda: "The United Nations Foundation created by billionaire Ted Turner, along with a branch of media giant Thomson Reuters, is starting to train a squadron of journalists and subsidize media content in 33 countries—including the U.S. and Britain -- in a planned $6 million effort to popularize the bulky and sweeping U.N.-sponsored Sustainable Development Goals, prior to a global U.N. summit this September."

    "The unprecedented media push.... is intended to help breathe some new life into a sprawling U.N. effort--supported by, among others, the Obama administration -- to create a global social and environmental agenda for the next 15 years." See The Emerging New World Order

 

Signs of the Times. Hezbollah shows off its tunnels, claims it is prepared for war with Israel: "Hezbollah shows off its tunnels, claims it is prepared for war with Israel. As the militant Lebanese organization is mired in Syria's war, it invites a reporter to its fortifications and upgraded tunnels, emphasizing that the border with Israel is still the central frontline." See Jews in Holy Land? What Jews? 

 

The Conscience. Franklin Graham to Robert Gates: 'Shame on you': "Rev. Franklin Graham took to his Facebook page to rebuke Robert Gates’ recent pro-'gay' stance on Boy Scouts’ leadership roles, saying the president of the decades-old organization ought to have stood on stronger ground.

     "Gates, the national president of the Boy Scouts of America, just declared the organization’s ban on homosexuals serving openly as troop leaders 'cannot be sustained.'...

     "Graham, on Facebook, responded: 'Robert Gates, shame on you for not having the moral courage to do what is right. Yesterday Gates … called for an end to the group’s ban on gay troop leaders. What are you thinking? See The Habit of a good Conscience

 

War. (May be slow to open) Activists: Islamic State seizes more than half of Syria: "The Islamic State has seized more than half of Syria after taking full control of the town of Palmyra and its ancient ruins, activists said Thursday. The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the extremists had seized more than 36,000 square miles of the country and had also taken control of 'the vast majority' of its gas and oil fields."

 

Global Fascism? TPP Gives Obama Power To Destroy America: "The TPP [Trans Pacific Trade Partnership] is global domination by a fascist cartel bent on enslaving the world. Now the Senate has given fast-track authority to Obama to implement this secret plan and set fire to our Constitution, rules of law and ultimately our liberty and way of life. Kentucky Senator and presidential candidate Rand Paul was among a host of lawmakers who staunchly opposed the secrecy surrounding the Trans Pacific Partnership bill..." See Merging the Americas in a New Global Order

 

Signs of the Times. 'Palestinian' Statehood: Separating Fact from Fantasy: "...the Vatican has concluded a treaty recognizing Palestinian statehood. [Actually, the Vatican officially recognized a 'Palestinian' state (though one does not actually exist)] ... During Israel's recent election, however, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu commented that if re-elected, he would oppose the creation of a 'Palestinian' state. He has good reason to oppose it....

     "The sad truth is that the 'Palestinians' want a state -- not beside Israel, but in place of it. If critics would take the time to read what the 'Palestinians' are saying to each other in Arabic ... as opposed to what they are saying to Western leaders and the Western media in English, they would understand the Islamic concept of taqqiyah (deception) and discover the real truth behind the Arab-Israeli conflict — not Israel's refusal to accept a State of Palestine, but the Arab refusal to accept the existence of Israel as a Jewish state on what they consider to be Islamic lands." See Critical Security Needs of Israel

 

Trust God!  Global Fraud Propping up System...: "...gold and silver prices are being rigged and the Justice Department is probably going to fine more bankers. Lets’ see, interest rates have been rigged, currency markets have been rigged and precious metals markets are being rigged.... There is NO RECOVERY and the Fed knows it."

But God's grace is far more precious than the riches of the world. As He reminds us: "We were burdened beyond measure, above strength, so that we despaired even of life. Yes, we had the sentence of death in ourselves, that we should not trust in ourselves but in God..." 2 Corinthians  1:8-9

Moral Corruption. Boy Scouts' chief says ban on gay adults 'unsustainable': "The head of the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) has said that the organisation's long-standing ban on participation by openly gay adults is unsustainable. Robert Gates said no changes would be made at the meeting, but opened the door to a future policy review. The former US Defence Secretary cited defiant chapters, possible legal challenges and other developments related to gay rights in the US. Gay rights groups have welcomed Mr. Gates' comments." See Human Nature

 

Persecution. Court Upholds Law That Could Imprison Pastors For Preaching Biblical Doctrines: "When the civil government orders you to do something that violates God’s Word, 'we ought to obey God rather than men.' (Acts 5:29)

     "In 2009, President Barack Obama signed the Hate Crimes Prevention Act into law. The law was pushed by every gay rights organization in the country. They claim that anyone who says anything negative about homosexuality is guilty of bullying them and therefore constitutes a hate crime. Under the strictest definition of the law, any biblical preaching against sin in general, especially that of homosexuality could be considered hate language and therefore a hate crime. If convicted of the felony offense, a person could spend as much as 10 years in prison." See Spiritual Warfare: Hating Truth and Primed for Deception!

 

Persecution! Christian persecution at 'unprecedented' levels: "Christians are the most persecuted of all religious believers....An estimated 100,000 Christians are killed each year around the world solely because of their faith." Trusting God as Freedom Fades

 

Alinsky. Radical leftist's son: 'Obama learned his lesson well': "...the son of radical socialist community organizer Saul Alinsky praised Barack Obama for stirring up the masses at the Democratic National Convention 'Saul Alinsky style,' saying, 'Obama learned his lesson well.'....

     "Saul Alinsky was a social revolutionist who advocated going beyond leftist approaches to the point of stirring mass organizations of 'Have-nots' that would rise up and seize power from the 'Haves.'

     "Alinsky’s ... book 'Rules for Radicals': “To the first radical known to man who rebelled against the establishment and did it so effectively that he at least won his own kingdom – Lucifer.” See Rules for Radicals


"Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? ... Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us..." Romans 8:35, 37

"Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go." Joshua 1:9

When enemy forces threatened to attack God's people, [King] Jehoshaphat simply turned His eyes and heart to His faithful Lord and expressed his faith:

“O Lord God of our fathers, are You not God in heaven, and do You not rule over all the kingdoms of the nations, and in Your hand is there not power and might, so that no one is able to withstand You?
     ...we have no power against this great multitude that is coming against us; nor do we know what to do, BUT OUR EYES ARE UPON YOU." 2 Chronicles 20:6, 12
