3000 Earthquakes Have Shaken Alaska in last 13 Days, Mega-Quake on Horizon?
MAY 13, 2017
A series of significant May earthquakes and their aftershocks are being examined by seismologists, who say Alaska is markedly above its usual rate of earthquakes for the month. Alaska Earthquake Center seismologist Natalia Ruppert said Alaska typically experiences a “background level” of 35,000 earthquakes each year, plus any significant earthquakes and their aftershocks.

The center typically sees about 3,000 quakes statewide in a month — but May has been well ahead of that pace, Ruppert said. “Right now, with the aftershocks, we recorded close to the monthly average in just the first 10 days,” Ruppert said. The catalog of May temblors as of Wednesday included at least three larger than a 6, seven larger than a 5 and 50 larger than a 4 on the Richter scale, according to an overview compiled by the earthquake center’s Ian Dickson.

SIGNS IN THE HEAVENS: The Great American Solar Eclipse is 100 Days Away
MAY 13, 2017
This summer, darkness will fall across the face of America. Birds will stop singing. Temperatures will drop. Stars will become visible in the daytime sky. In about 100 days, a total solar eclipse will sweep across the continental United States for the first time since 1918. Astronomers are calling it the Great American Eclipse.

For the amateur sky-watcher, a total eclipse presents a rare opportunity to witness a cosmic hiccup in our day-night cycle. For solar astronomers, however, the eclipse offers something else: three minutes (give or take) to collect as much data as possible about the sun’s usually hidden outer atmosphere. Researchers have been anticipating the event for years.

Researchers Develop Way To Print “Bionic Skin”
MAY 11, 2017
Researchers at the University of Minnesota say they’ve developed a way to make “bionic skin,” technology that could allow robots to feel their environments and humans to wear sensory-enhancing devices directly on their fingertips. The university announced the discovery Wednesday, adding that the research, led by mechanical engineering professor Michael McAlpine, will be published in the next issue of Advanced Materials.
According to the U of M, McAlpine and his fellow researchers developed a way to 3D-print “stretchable electronic fabric” on human skin. While they haven’t printed the technology on real human fingers just yet, they were able to successfully print the sensory material on the curved surface of model human hands. The researchers say the technology could have several applications, from medicine to warfare. They added that the technology could be available in the very near future, as the 3D printing manufacturig techniques are part of the team’s discovery.

PROPHECY WATCH: Would You Let Your Company Chip You?
MAY 11, 2017
Remember scenes from movies like Mission Impossible or Minority Report where people are subjected to microchip implants?  Well, it’s not just in the movies anymore–it’s real. Ask the employees of the Swedish company Epicenter, based in Stockholm, where it’s routine to have your hand implanted as part of your new employee on-boarding process.  The company gives its workers the choice of an implant that will operate printers and open doors–you can even buy items from the vending machine with it. Apparently,
it is an extremely popular undertaking that so far, about 150 of the 2,000 employees have opted for.  Epicenter CEO and co-founder Patrick Mesterton says, “The biggest benefit I think is convenience,” as he waves his own hand to unlock a door. “It basically replaces a lot of things you have, other communication devices, whether it be credit cards or keys.”Mesterton was one of the first to get chipped and lead by example, but even he initially had doubts and struggled with the decision. “Of course, putting things into your body is quite a big step to do and it was even for me at first,” he said.

Church Bans ‘Non-Christian’ Yoga for Focus on Oneself Instead of God
MAY 11, 2017
An Anglican church in Wales might face boycott from some in the community after it banned “non-Christian” yoga from the premises. St. David’s Church in Ceredigion decided not to allow yoga as part of its community center offerings, concerned that the practice that originated in India “might be seen to be in conflict with Christian values and belief,” according to The Telegraph. Some have apparently warned that yoga philosophy “teaches participants to focus on oneself, instead of on the one true God.”

A Church in Wales spokesman clarified some of the church’s rules: “There is no problem to have alcohol in the building, but alcohol is not to be sold. Pilates is allowed, but not yoga. Also no activity of non-Christian activity.” Some locals have said that they will protest the Parochial Church Council over the decision, however, with one resident writing, “I and no doubt some Blaenporth residents are not at all happy with the view the church has on community activities like yoga, tai chi, taekwondo, cash prize bingo and the like.

As Doomsday Clock Edges to Armageddon, Stephen Hawking Says Humanity Has 100 Years
MAY 11, 2017
The dreaded Doomsday Clock now stands at a perilous two-and-a-half minutes to midnight, and world-famous physicist Stephen Hawking has cut mankind’s lead time to disaster down to a single century. Incredibly, he has a solution which may reflect exactly what the Jewish end-of-days has in store. The Doomsday Clock was set up in 1947 by the The Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists‘ Science and Security Board to represent the likelihood of a human-caused global catastrophe. The clock was set at seven minutes to midnight at its inception and has been readjusted 22 times. In January, the clock was pushed a half a minute closer to midnight and now stands at 11:57:30 PM.
In a new BBC documentary called Expedition New Earth, Dr. Hawking listed a myriad of dangers that cut his thousand-year estimate down to a mere 100 years, including climate change, asteroid strikes, epidemics and overpopulation as the greatest dangers facing the world today. With multi-national militaries in Syria and off the coast of North Korea, many would add global war with nuclear overtones to the list. Dr. Hawking has suggested two solutions to the impending doom. While one of his proposals defies mankind’s Biblical mandate on earth, the other actually comes surprisingly close to tallying with Jewish end-of-days scenarios – albeit not perfectly.

Aetna to Completely Pull Out of ObamaCare Exchanges by 2018
MAY 11, 2017
Health insurance company Aetna (AET) announced Wednesday it will completely withdraw from the ObamaCare marketplace in 2018, a decision Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price perceived as a sign of continued instability in the health care sector under the Affordable Care Act. “Aetna’s decision to completely withdraw from the
ObamaCare exchanges adds to the mountain of evidence that ObamaCare has failed the American people. Repealing and replacing it with patient-centered solutions that stabilize the marketplace to bring down costs and increase choices is the only solution,” Price said late Wednesday. The company will not offer insurance plans in Delaware or Nebraska, the remaining two states where it was slated to provide coverage under the Affordable Care Act next year.

5-year-old brings loaded gun to North Carolina elementary school
MAY 11, 2017
A handgun found in a restroom at an elementary school in the Lake Wylie area of Mecklenburg County was brought in by a 5-year-old, officials said. Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools tells FOX 46 Charlotte that the weapon was found in a hallway restroom  at Palisades Park Elementary School by a group of children during morning arrival on Tuesday. They said the children saw the gun on the floor and ran to tell a staff member.
The gun had rounds in the magazine, not in the chamber and was brought to school by a 5-year-old boy, CMS Police tells FOX 46 Charlotte. “Safety protocols were immediately implemented and CMS law enforcement was notified,” CMS said in a statement to parents. The boy told police that someone put the gun in his book bag. Authorities said they do not believe he intended to use the gun at school.

Kirk Cameron Says Bible Is ‘More Powerful Than Any Book on Harry Potter’s Shelf’
MAY 11, 2017
Actor and producer Kirk Cameron is delighted by the success of National Bible Bee which premiered on Apr. 4 on Facebook Live. The game show on Bible knowledge broke new ground by being the first television series to be broadcast on the social media platform which generated over a million viewers. Cameron said he was thrilled to host the show to
bring more attention to young contestants who have devoted a significant amount of time to memorize and proclaim the scriptures. “More powerful than any book on Harry Potter’s shelf, the Holy Bible has transformed people and nations for thousands of years,” the “Growing Pains” star said. More than 40,000 contestants from seven to 18 years old have participated on National Bible Bee since it began in 2009. The last season was shown on three networks, and it reached 80 million homes.

 Puerto Rico’s Bankruptcy Fight Is About to Plunge Into the Unknown
MAY 11, 2017
Dealing with Puerto Rico’s crushing debt has started to resemble a circular firing squad. Simply put, the bankrupt island can’t pay everything it owes, so creditors are taking aim at each other as they squabble over who will get what’s left. But the debt’s size and the tangled process invented to rescue Puerto Rico mean there’s no established rule book to shape what comes next. Holders of general-obligation debt have declared their right to be paid first,
owners of sales-tax bonds are squabbling with one another over who deserves priority, and they’re all up against the commonwealth’s leaders, who want the cash for essential services. Amid this melee, Puerto Rico’s federal overseers will have to choose between paying U.S. hedge funds everything they’re owed or keeping schools, water and electricity running.  READ MORE https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2017-05-11/puerto-rico-debt-donnybrook-kicks-off-with-squabble-over-default

Christians Leaving the Girl Scouts Over Its Connection to Planned Parenthood
MAY 11, 2017
More families and churches are breaking ties with the Girl Scouts because of its connection to the abortion chain Planned Parenthood. This month, the Catholic Archdiocese of Kansas City in Kansas was the latest to announce plans to stop hosting Girl Scout troops in its parishes. The parishes are being encouraged instead to charter American Heritage Girls troops, which teach Christian values and virtues.
The Girl Scouts’ ties to the Planned Parenthood abortion chain and other abortion advocates have led to an exodus of many Christian families and churches. A 2015 report in the Dallas News indicated that the Girl Scouts’ numbers and funding have been shrinking during the past decade. The report states: According to figures provided to The Associated Press, youth membership for the fiscal year ending Sept. 30 [2015] was 1.88 million, down nearly 6.2 percent from 2014, and adult membership was 784,120, down 3.1 percent.

What Feel-Good Preachers Get Wrong on Sundays
MAY 11, 2017
(By Shane Idleman) “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world” (John 16:33).
Whether it’s on the radio, television, internet or at church, we often hear that God has a wonderful plan for our life. But as Ray Comfort rightly notes, “The preacher promises a bed of roses for those who come to Christ, but those who are in Christ are evidently sitting on a painful bed of thorns.” This may explain why a very high percent of those raised in Christian homes leave the faith, and why many others show no evidence of faith.
There are a large number of false conversions because many base their decision to follow Christ on having a wonderful life. We have turned salvation into an easy path rather than a narrow road. We’ve made Jesus a butler rather than a King. We want the cross light, the road easy and the burdens lifted.

Comey Sought to expand Trump-Russia probe of former campaign officials
MAY 11, 2017
The FBI-led probe into whether Russian influence operations helped put Donald Trump in the White House is on a knife’s edge and could easily veer into either of two distinct directions. One possibility is that investigators will feel galvanized by President Donald Trump’s abrupt firing of FBI director James Comey and burrow ever deeper into a probe in which they
see the reputation of the bureau at stake. Or, with the FBI temporarily rudderless, Trump loyalists in the Justice Department could put the brakes on the investigation in multiple ways. “They could just say, ‘We’ve got 60 days to tie this up. I’m not spending more person power inside the bureau. . . . Let’s just say wrap it up unless we’ve got a smoking gun,’ ” said Christopher H. Schroeder, a former assistant attorney general who headed the Office of Legal Policy.

Philippines moves troops, supplies to disputed S. China Sea island claimed by Beijing
MAY 11, 2017
The Philippines has begun moving troops and equipment to a disputed island in the South China Sea which is claimed by both Manila and Beijing, a Philippines general said. It comes ahead of construction, including lengthening an airstrip on the island. The troops and initial supplies arrived at Pag-asa Island last week, Lt. Gen. Raul del Rosario, head of the

Philippine military’s Western Command, said as quoted by AP. Some 1.6 billion pesos (US$32 million) has been set aside for construction on the island, which will include reinforcing and lengthening and airstrip and building dock, according to the official. Solar power, a desalination plant and refurbishment of military housing, as well as sites for marine research and tourists, are set to be built on the island.

25 great white sharks spotted off Southern California coast
MAY 11, 2017
“You are paddleboarding next to approximately 15 great white sharks,” is not something you want to hear when you’re enjoying a day at the beach. But that’s exactly what beachgoers in California heard broadcast from a helicopter loudspeaker as they paddle boarded in the waters off Capistrano Beach in Orange County on Wednesday. Lifeguards “are advising that you exit the water in a calm manner.
The sharks are as close as the surfline,” Orange County Sheriff Deputy Brian Stockbridge is heard saying on a video shot from a helicopter overlooking the beach.The school of sharks was spotted by Orange County Sheriff’s Duke 1 helicopter around 1:30 p.m. Jason Young, Orange County’s lifeguards chief, said they received two reports of shark sightings in the Capistrano Beach area, the OC Register reported.

Confederate Monument Removed in New Orleans after 106 years
MAY 11, 2017
A large police presence, as well as large cranes and heavy equipment, were all part of the removal of the monument to former Confederate President Jefferson Davis early Thursday, May 11. Workers who showed up to work on the removal were again shrouded with masks and dark clothing as the city has said there have been threats made against those participating in the removal.
The monument to Jefferson Davis was erected in 1911 and had stood in its location at the corner of Jefferson Davis Parkway and Canal Street for 106 years. Crews showed up shortly after 3 a.m. and the actual removal of the statue was done shortly after 5 a.m. as a sling and bubble wrap were put around the statue before it was hoisted in the air and laid down on the bed of a truck.

Matt Drudge Warns Trump insiders ‘Deliberately Sabotaging Presidency’
MAY 11, 2017
Perhaps “draining the swamp” needs to begin with certain personnel at the White House. Internet news powerhouse Matt Drudge is now claiming advisers to President Donald Trump who are leaking information to news media are “deliberately sabotaging” his presidency. In a couple of rare tweets on Wednesday, the online newsman indicated: “Trump advisers leaking to media are now deliberately sabotaging presidency. Major house cleaning needed for survival.” Minutes earlier,

he sent another tweet stating: “We never got 1 damaging leak out of Obama White House staff in 8 yrs. Under Trump, they appear hourly. BIG DANGER: Small leaks sink ships!!” Drudge linked to a report by Axios that included behind-the-scenes comments at the White House concerning the internal mayhem over Trump’s firing of FBI Director James Comey on Tuesday. One anonymous White House official quoted in that report stated, “It’s insane. The whole thing is just insane.” FULL REPORT http://www.wnd.com/2017/05/matt-drudge-trump-advisers-deliberately-sabotaging-presidency/

OOPS! Military Code-Breaking Computer Project Accidentally Shown To Entire Internet
MAY 11, 2017
In early December 2016, Adam was doing what he’s always doing, somewhere between hobby and profession: looking for things that are on the internet that shouldn’t be. That week, he came across a server inside New York University’s famed Institute for Mathematics and Advanced Supercomputing, headed by the brilliant Chudnovsky brothers, David and Gregory. The server appeared to be an internet-connected backup drive. But instead of being filled with family photos and spreadsheets, this drive held confidential information on an advanced code-breaking machine that had never before been described in public.
Dozens of documents spanning hundreds of pages detailed the project, a joint supercomputing initiative administered by NYU, the Department of Defense, and IBM. And they were available for the entire world to download. The supercomputer described in the trove, “WindsorGreen,” was a system designed to excel at the sort of complex mathematics that underlies encryption, the technology that keeps data private, and almost certainly intended for use by the Defense Department’s signals intelligence wing, the National Security Agency.

BREAKING NEWS: Abbas Agrees To Sign “Peace Deal” with Israel!
MAY 12, 2017
Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas has crossed the Rubicon and voiced “unprecedented” readiness to reach a peace deal with Israel, sources close to the efforts to renew talks between Israel and the Palestinians have told The Jerusalem Post. Abbas, according to the sources, made this clear to President Donald Trump during their meeting at the

White House last week. The president plans to use his trip to Israel later this month to receive assurances from Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu that he, too, is committed to a peace agreement.Since his meeting with Trump last week, Abbas has changed his rhetoric, issuing a number of statements meant to reflect flexibility on previous demands. He has, for example, said that he would renew the talks under Trump’s auspices without preconditions. In the past, he had said he would not negotiate with Netanyahu without a freeze to settlement construction.

Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas has crossed the Rubicon and voiced “unprecedented” readiness to reach a peace deal with Israel, sources close to the efforts to renew talks between Israel and the Palestinians have told The Jerusalem Post.
Abbas, according to the sources, made this clear to President Donald Trump during their meeting at the White House last week. The president plans to use his trip to Israel later this month to receive assurances from Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu that he, too, is committed to a peace agreement.
Netanyahu angry Lauder advised Abbas
Since his meeting with Trump last week, Abbas has changed his rhetoric, issuing a number of statements meant to reflect flexibility on previous demands. He has, for example, said that he would renew the talks under Trump’s auspices without preconditions. In the past, he had said he would not negotiate with Netanyahu without a freeze to settlement construction.

He has also sent his advisers to the press to declare that the Palestinians are prepared to negotiate land swaps with Israel, a recognition that some West Bank settlements will remain part of Israel in the framework of a future deal.

Netanyahu, on the other hand, has largely remained quiet. The strategy within the Prime Minister’s Office in Jerusalem seems to be to wait and hope not to be blamed for preventing the success of the peace talks Trump is planning to restart following his visit on May 22.

As reported earlier this week in Maariv and the Post, the person responsible for this change in Abbas is Ronald Lauder, the American billionaire and head of the World Jewish Congress, who is one of the closest people to Trump. Lauder has publicly said that he has known Trump for over 50 years and that he is a “great and true friend” of Israel.

Before Abbas met with Trump last week, he stopped by Lauder’s house for dinner and got briefed on ways to win over the president. To some, it seems that Lauder has bypassed Sheldon Adelson as the most influential Jew in Trump’s circle.

Lauder has been pushing for an Israeli-Palestinian peace deal for years and was in Cairo two months ago for a meeting with President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi ahead of the Egyptian leader’s visit to the White House. Lauder, sources say, seems to have been tapped by the president as something of a semi-official envoy to the region with an emphasis on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

Politicians who spoke to Lauder at Sunday’s Jerusalem Post Conference in New York later told the Post that he told them about his meeting with Abbas. At the same time, Netanyahu told confidants that he was furious over the American Jewish leader’s involvement.

“You don’t understand how much influence he has over Trump,” the prime minister told a confidant in a private conversation this week.

Scientists Left Baffled From Cosmic Radio Signal From Outer Space
MAY 12, 2017
Scientists have been left mystified by a radio signal sent from outer Space. The “fast radio burst” came from outside our own galaxy – but experts have no idea what caused it. Radio burst FRB 150215 was received on February 15, 2015 by the Parkes Telescope in Australia. It is the 22nd cosmic signal of its kind. But after two years, the experts are no closer to
finding out exactly what it was – or where it came from. Harvard researchers have suggested that these fast radio bursts (FRB) are caused by alien space travel or advanced alien technology. But according to a study recent study published by Cornell University, scientists are no closer to settling the debate. “The burst was followed-up with 11 telescopes to search for radio, optical, X-ray, gamma-ray and neutrino emission.

United Methodist Minister Facing Possible Discipline for Officiating Same-Sex Ceremony
MAY 12, 2017
A campus minister at the University of Iowa is facing possible censure from United Methodist leadership for officiating a same-sex ceremony for another female clergy member. Anna Blaedel, the executive director of the university’s Wesley Student Center, presided over the ceremony in Oklahoma on April 4, despite knowledge that doing so is forbidden by the United Methodist Book of Discipline. “I knew that officiating at this wedding could cost me my credentials, could cost me
my job, could cost me my health insurance and could cost me my income,” she told the Press-Citizen. “But I also knew that saying ‘no’ to one of my best friends would cost me my integrity and my soul.” The Appointive Cabinet of the Iowa Conference consequently filed a unanimous complaint against Blaedel last month for engaging in a practice that is “incompatible with Christian teaching.”

Hepatitis C nearly triples in US in 5 years…
MAY 12, 2017
The number of hepatitis C infections have nearly tripled in the United States in the last five years, particularly among people in their 20s, researchers said Thursday. The bloodborne virus is transmitted by injection drug use, dirty needles, blood transfusions and sex. Chronic infection can lead to cirrhosis or cancer of the liver. Hepatitis C is the top infectious disease killer in the nation, taking nearly 20,000 lives in 2015, said the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Experts say the rise of the opioid epidemic, with increasing numbers of people sharing needles to inject heroin and prescription painkillers, is driving the increase in cases. “New hepatitis C virus infections are increasing most rapidly among young people, with the highest overall number of new infections among 20- to 29-year-olds,” said a statement from the CDC.

Ebola Returns! World Health Organization Warns of New Epidemic – 3 Dead
MAY 12, 2017
A new Ebola epidemic has been declared in the Democratic Republic of Congo after the deaths of three people thought to be linked to the virus. The country’s health ministry confirmed one person has tested positive for the virus. The World Health Organisation confirmed that the DR Congo had informed them of a lab-confirmed case of the disease.
The case was confirmed from tests on nine people who came down with a hemorrhagic fever in Bas-Uele province in the northeast of the country on or after April 22, the statement said. Spokesman Eric Kabambi said: ‘The case is in a very remote zone, very forested, so we are a little lucky. We always take this very seriously’

New “Faith-Based” Film Filled With F-Bombs
MAY 11, 2017
‘Generational Sins’ features expletives and references to child abuse and alcoholism: “We live in an R-rated world, and covering up the darkness won’t bring it into the light,” says executive producer Thurman Mason. An upcoming faith-based film is attempting to go where no previous movie from the genre has ever gone. Generational Sins — directed by Spencer T. Folmar and written by Folmar, Dax Spanogle, Jason Spanogle, Casey Salviano and Fernando Salviano — is overflowing
with profanity, including multiple uses of “f—,” “sh**,” “bi***,” “di**” and “a**.” It’s a huge departure compared to recent faith-based successes like God’s Not Dead, which took in $60 million in 2014 and contained just one objectionable word: “crap.” Generational Sins is about child abuse, alcoholism and, ultimately, redemption through Jesus Christ, and it could be in the unusual position of being offensive to both Christians and the LGBTQ community, since it also contains the term “faggot.” (GLAAD declined comment for this story.)

PROPHESY
Abass Russia must be part of peace process
MAY 12, 2017
Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas met with Russian President Vladimir Putin at the Sochi resort in Western Russia on Thursday, and said that solving the Israeli-Palestinian conflict will be “impossible” without the participation of Moscow in the peace process.“It is impossible to solve the Palestinian issue without Russia’s meaningful participation in the peace process.
That is what we have been emphasizing at all international meetings,” Abbas said in his meeting with Putin, according to the official Russian State news agency Tass. Putin said Russia “will continue to give its full support to the resumption of direct dialogue between Palestinians and Israelis.” “The peaceful coexistence of the two states — Palestine and Israel — is an indispensable condition to ensure genuine security and stability in this region,” Putin said.

DEVELOPING: Earthquake Swarm Rattling Residents in Seattle
MAY 11, 2017
After two earthquakes early Thursday, part of a swarm of minor quakes that have struck the Kitsap Peninsula, another earthquake was detected at 10:56 a.m. off Whidbey Island. The first quake hit at 12:34 a.m. Thursday, with a magnitude of 3.6 and an epicenter 3.4 miles from Bremerton, according to the University of Washington’s Pacific Northwest Seismic Network (PNSN). More than 700 people reported to the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) that they felt some intensity of shaking in places from Vashon Island to Bellevue to Lynnwood.

The second, smaller temblor came at 2:36 a.m., with a magnitude of 2.6 and an epicenter 2.1 miles from Bremerton. The earthquakes were the latest in a series of 13 that have occurred around the Kitsap Peninsula since May 3. None had a magnitude greater than 3.6. Earthquakes registering between 2.0 and 3.9 on the Richter scale are considered minor. The earthquakes struck near the Seattle fault, a zone of thrust faults that run through Seattle and across the Puget Sound.

Facebook Blocks Video Of Thailand King At Government’s Request
MAY 11, 2017
Facebook is banning people from seeing a video of Thailand’s King wearing a crop top. The controversial video shows the newly-crowned monarch walking in a shopping mall wearing a bright yellow crop top that shows the ornate tattoos on his arms, according to activists who are sharing it online. But it’s not possible to share it on Facebook within Thailand, after the social network banned it. King Maha Vajiralongkorn
Bodindradebayavarangkun is shown walking alongside a woman, and is accompanied by men who appear to be a bodyguard. Pictures of the King in such attire have circulated on the internet before. But this is thought to be the first video showing him before he became King, and changed his dress to be considerably more conservative. The 64-year-old King took the throne after his father Bhumibol Adulyadej died earlier this year. The video was taken last June, according to reports, just months before.

Christian Bakers Fined for Refusing to Make ‘Support Gay Marriage’ Cake Get BIG Surprise
MAY 11, 2017
Something quite surprising has happened to Christian bakers in Northern Ireland who were found guilty of discrimination for declining to make a cake that included the message “support gay marriage” on it: The bakery’s profits have increased.According to the Belfast Telegraph, Ashers Bakery posted profits of £1.5 million in 2016 compared to £1.3 million in 2015, equivalent to a rise from to $1.41 million to $1.63 million. This means that the controversy over the cake refusal —
one that was told by media outlets across the globe — didn’t have much of an impact on the bakery’s bottom line. As Faithwire previously reported, the McArthur family, who own the company, landed in the crosshairs after declining to make the cake in 2014 for an LGBTQ activist named Gareth Lee. In addition to including the “support gay marriage” message, Lee reportedly also wanted the cake to have a logo for his organization QueerSpace and an image of Sesame Street’s Bert and Ernie hugging.

White House Says Trump will ‘Fully Eliminate’ Global Threats to U.S. and Allies
MAY 11, 2017
Poised to decide whether to surge U.S. troops into Afghanistan, President Trump aims to “fully eliminate” threats to U.S. and allied interests around the world, the White House said Tuesday. “We need to fully eliminate any threat around the globe, frankly, not just in Afghanistan, that poses a threat to our people and our allies,” press secretary Sean Spicer told reporters at his daily briefing. The review of America’s
Afghanistan strategy is done, and the president will be briefed “soon,” a top aide told Yahoo News. This sets the stage for Trump to decide whether or not to hurl more troops into America’s longest war. The U.S. commander in Afghanistan, Army Gen. John Nicholson Jr., warned the Senate Armed Services Committee in early February that the war in Afghanistan was in a “stalemate” and that “we have a shortfall of a few thousand” troops.

PROPHECY WATCH: Would You Let Your Company Chip You?
MAY 11, 2017
Remember scenes from movies like Mission Impossible or Minority Report where people are subjected to microchip implants? Well, it’s not just in the movies anymore–it’s real. Ask the employees of the Swedish company Epicenter, based in Stockholm, where it’s routine to have your hand implanted as part of your new employee on-boarding process. The company gives its workers the choice of an implant that will operate printers and open doors–you can even buy items from the vending machine with it. Apparently,
it is an extremely popular undertaking that so far, about 150 of the 2,000 employees have opted for. Epicenter CEO and co-founder Patrick Mesterton says, “The biggest benefit I think is convenience,” as he waves his own hand to unlock a door. “It basically replaces a lot of things you have, other communication devices, whether it be credit cards or keys.”Mesterton was one of the first to get chipped and lead by example, but even he initially had doubts and struggled with the decision. “Of course, putting things into your body is quite a big step to do and it was even for me at first,” he said.

Hospital computers across England shut down by cyberattack, Hackers demand ransom
https://www.rt.com/uk/388115-nhs-hospitals-cyber-attack/
MAY 12, 2017
Hospitals across England have reportedly been hit by a large-scale cyberattack. Some are having to divert emergency patients, with doctors reporting messages demanding money. The Guardian says National Health Service (NHS) hospitals across the country appear to have been simultaneously hit by a bug in their IT systems. Doctors have been posting on Twitter about what has been happening. A screengrab of an instant message conversation circulated by one doctor says:
“So our hospital is down … We got a message saying your computers are now under their control and pay a certain amount of money. And now everything is gone.” A second doctor tweeted: “Massive NHS hack cyber attack today. Hospital in shut down. Thanks for delaying emergency patient care & endangering lives. Assholes.” East and North Hertfordshire NHS Trust, one of those affected, said in a statement: “Today, the trust has experienced a major IT problem, believed to be caused by a cyber attack.

New Israeli Research Reveals that Men are Men and Women are Women
MAY 12, 2017
A new study by Israeli researchers found that a man cannot become a woman by simply “identifying” as one and vice versa. Geneticists from Israel’s Weizmann Institute of Science discovered certain genes that are only expressed in women, while others are only expressed in men. Professor Shmuel Pietrokovski and Dr. Moran Gershoni studied 20,000 genes, sorting them by sex, and searching for differences in expression in each tissue.
They eventually found around “6,500 genes with activity that was biased toward one sex or the other in at least one tissue, adding to the already major biological differences between men and women.” Some of the biggest differences were in genes responsible for body hair, fat storage, muscle building, and milk production for breastfeeding. The researchers also found that biological sex also plays a role in preventing specific illnesses.

BREAKING NEWS: Ransomware Cyber Attack Reported Worldwide
MAY 12, 2017
A massive ransomware campaign appears to have infected a number of organizations around the world. Screenshots of a well-known program that locks computers and demands $300 (£230) in Bitcoin have been shared online by parties claiming to be affected. There have been reports of infections in the UK, US, China, Russia, Spain, Italy, Vietnam, Taiwan and others. Security researchers are linking the incidents together. One cyber-security researcher tweeted that he had
detected many thousands of cases of the ransomware, known as WannaCry and variants of that name. “This is huge,” said Jakub Kroustek at Avast. Another, at cyber-security firm Kaspersky, said that the ransomware had been spotted cropping up in 74 countries and that the number was still growing. The UK’s National Health Service (NHS) was also hit by a ransomware outbreak on the same day and screenshots of the WannaCry program were shared by NHS staff.

Church Bans ‘Non-Christian’ Yoga for Focus on Oneself Instead of God
MAY 11, 2017
An Anglican church in Wales might face boycott from some in the community after it banned “non-Christian” yoga from the premises. St. David’s Church in Ceredigion decided not to allow yoga as part of its community center offerings, concerned that the practice that originated in India “might be seen to be in conflict with Christian values and belief,” according to The Telegraph. Some have apparently warned that yoga philosophy “teaches participants to focus on oneself, instead of on the one true God.”

A Church in Wales spokesman clarified some of the church’s rules: “There is no problem to have alcohol in the building, but alcohol is not to be sold. Pilates is allowed, but not yoga. Also no activity of non-Christian activity.” Some locals have said that they will protest the Parochial Church Council over the decision, however, with one resident writing, “I and no doubt some Blaenporth residents are not at all happy with the view the church has on community activities like yoga, tai chi, taekwondo, cash prize bingo and the like.

As Doomsday Clock Edges to Armageddon, Stephen Hawking Says Humanity Has 100 Years
MAY 11, 2017
The dreaded Doomsday Clock now stands at a perilous two-and-a-half minutes to midnight, and world-famous physicist Stephen Hawking has cut mankind’s lead time to disaster down to a single century. Incredibly, he has a solution which may reflect exactly what the Jewish end-of-days has in store. The Doomsday Clock was set up in 1947 by the The Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists‘ Science and Security Board to represent the likelihood of a human-caused global catastrophe. The clock was set at seven minutes to midnight at its inception and has been readjusted 22 times. In January, the clock was pushed a half a minute closer to midnight and now stands at 11:57:30 PM.
In a new BBC documentary called Expedition New Earth, Dr. Hawking listed a myriad of dangers that cut his thousand-year estimate down to a mere 100 years, including climate change, asteroid strikes, epidemics and overpopulation as the greatest dangers facing the world today. With multi-national militaries in Syria and off the coast of North Korea, many would add global war with nuclear overtones to the list. Dr. Hawking has suggested two solutions to the impending doom. While one of his proposals defies mankind’s Biblical mandate on earth, the other actually comes surprisingly close to tallying with Jewish end-of-days scenarios – albeit not perfectly.

Aetna to Completely Pull Out of ObamaCare Exchanges by 2018
MAY 11, 2017
Health insurance company Aetna (AET) announced Wednesday it will completely withdraw from the ObamaCare marketplace in 2018, a decision Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price perceived as a sign of continued instability in the health care sector under the Affordable Care Act. “Aetna’s decision to completely withdraw from the
ObamaCare exchanges adds to the mountain of evidence that ObamaCare has failed the American people. Repealing and replacing it with patient-centered solutions that stabilize the marketplace to bring down costs and increase choices is the only solution,” Price said late Wednesday. The company will not offer insurance plans in Delaware or Nebraska, the remaining two states where it was slated to provide coverage under the Affordable Care Act next year.

5-year-old brings loaded gun to North Carolina elementary school
MAY 11, 2017
A handgun found in a restroom at an elementary school in the Lake Wylie area of Mecklenburg County was brought in by a 5-year-old, officials said. Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools tells FOX 46 Charlotte that the weapon was found in a hallway restroom at Palisades Park Elementary School by a group of children during morning arrival on Tuesday. They said the children saw the gun on the floor and ran to tell a staff member.
The gun had rounds in the magazine, not in the chamber and was brought to school by a 5-year-old boy, CMS Police tells FOX 46 Charlotte. “Safety protocols were immediately implemented and CMS law enforcement was notified,” CMS said in a statement to parents. The boy told police that someone put the gun in his book bag. Authorities said they do not believe he intended to use the gun at school.

Kirk Cameron Says Bible Is ‘More Powerful Than Any Book on Harry Potter’s Shelf’
MAY 11, 2017
Actor and producer Kirk Cameron is delighted by the success of National Bible Bee which premiered on Apr. 4 on Facebook Live. The game show on Bible knowledge broke new ground by being the first television series to be broadcast on the social media platform which generated over a million viewers. Cameron said he was thrilled to host the show to
bring more attention to young contestants who have devoted a significant amount of time to memorize and proclaim the scriptures. “More powerful than any book on Harry Potter’s shelf, the Holy Bible has transformed people and nations for thousands of years,” the “Growing Pains” star said. More than 40,000 contestants from seven to 18 years old have participated on National Bible Bee since it began in 2009. The last season was shown on three networks, and it reached 80 million homes. This season, 30 one-hour episodes are being broadcast on Christian Cinema Facebook Live.

Puerto Rico’s Bankruptcy Fight Is About to Plunge Into the Unknown
MAY 11, 2017
Dealing with Puerto Rico’s crushing debt has started to resemble a circular firing squad. Simply put, the bankrupt island can’t pay everything it owes, so creditors are taking aim at each other as they squabble over who will get what’s left. But the debt’s size and the tangled process invented to rescue Puerto Rico mean there’s no established rule book to shape what comes next. Holders of general-obligation debt have declared their right to be paid first,
owners of sales-tax bonds are squabbling with one another over who deserves priority, and they’re all up against the commonwealth’s leaders, who want the cash for essential services. Amid this melee, Puerto Rico’s federal overseers will have to choose between paying U.S. hedge funds everything they’re owed or keeping schools, water and electricity running.

Christians Leaving the Girl Scouts Over Its Connection to Planned Parenthood
MAY 11, 2017
More families and churches are breaking ties with the Girl Scouts because of its connection to the abortion chain Planned Parenthood. This month, the Catholic Archdiocese of Kansas City in Kansas was the latest to announce plans to stop hosting Girl Scout troops in its parishes. The parishes are being encouraged instead to charter American Heritage Girls troops, which teach Christian values and virtues.
The Girl Scouts’ ties to the Planned Parenthood abortion chain and other abortion advocates have led to an exodus of many Christian families and churches. A 2015 report in the Dallas News indicated that the Girl Scouts’ numbers and funding have been shrinking during the past decade. The report states: According to figures provided to The Associated Press, youth membership for the fiscal year ending Sept. 30 [2015] was 1.88 million, down nearly 6.2 percent from 2014, and adult membership was 784,120, down 3.1 percent.

What Feel-Good Preachers Get Wrong on Sundays
MAY 11, 2017
(By Shane Idleman) “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world” (John 16:33).
Whether it’s on the radio, television, internet or at church, we often hear that God has a wonderful plan for our life. But as Ray Comfort rightly notes, “The preacher promises a bed of roses for those who come to Christ, but those who are in Christ are evidently sitting on a painful bed of thorns.” This may explain why a very high percent of those raised in Christian homes leave the faith, and why many others show no evidence of faith.
There are a large number of false conversions because many base their decision to follow Christ on having a wonderful life. We have turned salvation into an easy path rather than a narrow road. We’ve made Jesus a butler rather than a King. We want the cross light, the road easy and the burdens lifted.

Comey Sought to expand Trump-Russia probe of former campaign officials
MAY 11, 2017
The FBI-led probe into whether Russian influence operations helped put Donald Trump in the White House is on a knife’s edge and could easily veer into either of two distinct directions. One possibility is that investigators will feel galvanized by President Donald Trump’s abrupt firing of FBI director James Comey and burrow ever deeper into a probe in which they
see the reputation of the bureau at stake. Or, with the FBI temporarily rudderless, Trump loyalists in the Justice Department could put the brakes on the investigation in multiple ways. “They could just say, ‘We’ve got 60 days to tie this up. I’m not spending more person power inside the bureau. . . . Let’s just say wrap it up unless we’ve got a smoking gun,’ ” said Christopher H. Schroeder, a former assistant attorney general who headed the Office of Legal Policy.

US Approves Heavier Weapons for Syrian Kurds to Defeat ISIS
MAY 9, 2017
The Trump administration will provide heavier weapons to Syria’s Kurds as they and their allies move closer to an attack on the key Islamic State stronghold of Raqqa, U.S. officials said Tuesday. The decision is meant to accelerate the Raqqa operation, but it clashes with the Turkish government’s view that the Syrian Kurdish group known as the YPG is an extension of Kurdish terrorist organization that operates in Turkey.
The U.S. sees the Kurds as its most effective battlefield partner against IS in northern and eastern Syria. After lengthy deliberations, the administration approved plans to provide additional weaponry to the Kurds. A full list wasn’t immediately available, but officials had indicated in recent days that 120mm mortars, machines guns, ammunition and light armored vehicles were possibilities. They said the U.S. would not provide artillery or surface-to-air missiles.

DAYS OF LOT: Josh McDowell Warns Of Children Facing Porn’s Dangers by Age 5
MAY 9, 2017
An esteemed Christian apologist is using his platform and influence to combat the pornography scourge and is warning parents to prepare their kids to face its dangers by the time they are five years old. Gathered before a crowd of 30 pastors and ministry leaders at the office of the National Center on Sexual Exploitation Wednesday, best-selling author Josh McDowell exhorted everyone to tackle this issue head-on. McDowell, 77, who is himself a sexual abuse survivor, recounted
that about eight or nine years ago he felt as though there was a mysterious destructive phenomenon going on in culture that was fundamentally altering the belief systems of young people. He could not quite put his finger on what it was but it was affecting their relationships with their parents, the church, and with God. The phenomenon, he would determine, is “pervasive Internet pornography” and as an apologist for the Christian faith, he felt compelled to speak to this. “Very seldom am I surprised by the research,” McDowell said.

Have We Just Witnessed The End of a Christian Europe?
MAY 9, 2017
(Reported By Bob Eschliman) In 732 a relatively small army of French Christians led by Charles Martel defeated an invading Muslim army in the Battle of Tours, near Poitier, France. Abd-ar-Rahman, the Muslim governor of Cordoba, Spain was killed in the fighting, and the Moors retreated from what is now France, never to establish themselves north of the Pyrenees. Yesterday, the French had a similar opportunity to repulse the Muslim invasion that is destroying the 2000-year old Gaulish Christian culture that
arose from the ashes of the Roman Empire, but no Frankish army showed up at the French polling stations to repulse the invasion. Instead, Emmanuel Macron, a “Useful Infidel,” was swept into power as President of France. Unlike in the United States, Hungary and Poland, and to a lesser extent in Great Britain, where the ascendant political leaders of those countries at least recognize the threat of Islam to their cultures, Macron is a globalist and an “open promoter of multiculturalism.” READ MORE http://www.charismanews.com/politics/opinion/64776-is-this-the-end-of-a-christian-europe


Hank Hanegraaff Reveals He Has Rare Form of Cancer
MAY 9, 2017
“Bible Answer Man” Hank Hanegraaff has told his supporters that doctors have discovered he has a rare form of cancer. Hanegraaff explained that he’s hoping for a miraculous healing, but at the same time said his prayer is not for his will to be done, but for God’s, and that he will be looking to use his situation to help and encourage others.
The president and chairman of the board of the North Carolina–based Christian Research Institute said in a video blog on May 2 that he has been diagnosed with anemia and is awaiting the results from a bone marrow biopsy, and late last week shared an update in another Facebook video. “What was discovered is a rare form of cancer that is called mantle cell lymphoma. This is a treatable cancer, but it is going to require aggressive chemo therapy,” he revealed, adding that he’s also scheduled to undergo a CT scan.

After more than a century of being identified as “Baptist,” one Illinois church is ditching its denominational designation. The First Baptist Church of Geneva in Kane County will now be known as Chapelstreet Church. With the new name, the congregation is hoping to brush aside the “negative stereotypes” associated with the “Baptist” title.
“ ‘First’ is a historic reference to the first white church established in a city. ‘Baptist’ is a misunderstood term that in our culture brings with it negative stereotypes,” the church explained on its website. The leadership said the church’s name “should reflect who they are, align with their vision, and should not present any unnecessary barriers to people hearing the gospel of Jesus Christ.”

Turkish President Working to End ‘Judaization’ of Jerusalem
MAY 9, 2017
Hours after launching a scathing attack on Israel, calling on Muslims to flood the Temple Mount in protest at the “occupation” of Jerusalem, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan discussed ways to halt the so-called “judaization” of Jerusalem with Palestinian Authority Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah. Meeting with Hamdallah in Istanbul Monday night, Erdogan “confirmed the necessity of unifying efforts to protect Jerusalem against attempts of judaization,” according to an official statement carried by the Palestinian Ma’an news agency.
On Monday evening, Erdogan drew swift Israeli rebuke for a speech in which he called Israel “racist and discriminatory,” and said Muslims should visit Jerusalem’s flashpoint Temple Mount more often to support Palestinians. “Each day that Jerusalem is under occupation is an insult to us,” he said, at the opening ceremony of the International Forum on al-Quds Waqf in Istanbul, Turkey’s Hurriyet news reported.

Catholic Schools Accused of ‘Transphobia’ for Canceling Play About Boy Who Dresses as a Girl
MAY 9, 2017
A Catholic school board is being criticized and accused of “transphobia” after it canceled an LGBT-themed play that was slated to be performed in five of its elementary schools. Last week, the Niagara Catholic District School Board cancelled the play “Boys, Girls, and Other Mythological Creatures,” which focuses on an 8-year-old boy who suffers from gender dysphoria and dresses like a girl.
The Globe and Mail reports that John Crocco, the director of education at the NCDSB, announced that the five elementary schools cancelled their planned performances of the play, which was aimed at students ages 5 to 10. According to the news outlet, the play was cancelled after a school board official voiced concerns to the five school principals that the play is “not age-appropriate for a predominantly primary audience.” Crocco also said that the play was not clearly advertised to the school board as being about gender identity.

Deadly Hailstorm Strikes Colorado, Leaving Widespread Damage
MAY 9, 2017
A severe thunderstorm hit Colorado on Monday, May 8, 2017, dumping hail as large as tennis balls. The storm blanketed the state in a thick layer of ice, leaving widespread damage and traffic delays. Hundreds if not thousands of vehicles and buildings were damaged. Although most of the hailstones did not exceed the size of golfballs some of them were as big as tennis balls and there are even reports of hail larger than a pool ball.
A severe thunderstorm moved over Denver shortly after 15:00 MDT and was very slow-moving, AccuWeather Meteorologist Brian Edwards said. “Since the storm was barely moving, hail piled up several inches, causing widespread travel problems in the metro area.” Air traffic was also impacted as more than 150 flights at Denver international Airport had to be delayed.

Ex-Obama Official on ISIS Killing Christians: ‘What Goes Around Comes Around’
MAY 9, 2017
Days after ISIS warned Muslims in Egypt to “stay away from Christian gatherings,” the terror group has shot dead a Christian man inside a barber shop. 50-year-old Nabil Saber Ayoub was killed Saturday evening in the coastal city of el-Arish. He is at least the seventh Christian murdered in the region following a wave of attacks in recent months across the
country. The most devastating attack happened on Palm Sunday when suicide bombers targeted two churches, leaving 27 dead and scores wounded. Now, a former Obama official says Ayoub and other Egyptian Christians deserve the persecution they are suffering from ISIS. Mohamed Elibiary was a former Homeland Security Advisory Council member under the Obama administration.

VP Pence Joining Franklin Graham to Stand for Persecuted Christians
MAY 9, 2017
Vice President Mike Pence will address hundreds of persecuted Christians from around the globe at a Washington, D.C., summit hosted by evangelist Franklin Graham this week. Pence, an evangelical Christian who has made religious freedom a priority, is scheduled to address the gathering Thursday morning. Franklin Graham recently discussed the upcoming World Summit in Defense of Persecuted Christians on the “Washington Watch” radio program with host Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council.
Graham and Perkins talked about worldwide persecution and the violence committed against Christians and other religious minorities around the world. “I want our politicians to see what is happening and I want the voices of these people who have been persecuted, I want their voices to be heard. I want to give them a stage for them to be able to tell their stories and do it right there in Washington, where hopefully, we can see some policy changes,” Graham said of the summit.

Chicago Police Issue Bulletin On Gangs and High-Powered Weapons
MAY 9, 2017
Chicago police issued a bulletin Monday warning its officers about gangs armed with high-powered weapons, after three people were shot to death over the weekend – including two attending a memorial for the earlier victim. Department spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said the three people who were killed in the shootings Sunday were all members of the same street gang.
A shooting early in the day left one man dead, and the two others were killed and eight people were injured in a spray of more than two dozen shots from two guns while attending a makeshift memorial for him. Police suspect they were all shot by members of a rival street gang in the same neighborhood on Chicago’s southwest side.

HOUSE DIVIDED: Momentum Gaining Among Democrats For Trump Impeachment
MAY 11, 2017
Democratic leaders aren’t calling for the impeachment of President Donald Trump. But they’re getting closer. To one Democratic congressman, the president’s decision to fire FBI Director James Comey reminded him of the “doomsday clock,” a symbol that warns about the likelihood of nuclear war. “We should maybe have an impeachment clock,” Rep.
Mark Pocan, D-Wis., said on Wednesday. “And if we did, I think yesterday moved us about an hour closer to having that need.” Pocan said he had thought Democrats in the House of Representatives needed to use the threat of impeachment as a “tool” to make the administration follow the law. “I would argue this has got to still be on the table as an option, especially if, indeed, there was obstruction of justice by the firing of the FBI director,” said Pocan, first vice chair of the Congressional Progressive Caucus.

Only 37 Percent Of Evangelical Christians Believe That Going To A Strip Club Without Your Spouse Is Cheating
MAY 10, 2017
(Reported By Michael Snyder) If a husband goes to a strip club without his wife and spends hours watching other women dance around naked, would that be considered cheating? Of course the answer is yes, but I was astounded when I came across a recent survey that found that only 37 percent of evangelical Christians agree with me. Perhaps even more shocking is the fact that the same survey found that only 31 percent of evangelical Christians believe that “watching pornography without your partner” is cheating.
Numbers like these make me wonder exactly what is being taught in our churches these days.vIn America today, most ministers are extremely hesitant to preach hard messages about “right” and “wrong” because there is fear that some people might get offended. But when morality is not taught, all sorts of crazy things start happening. For example, there is a “devout Christian couple” down in Florida that claims that they are “spreading the gospel” by having sex with other couples. Dean and Christy Parave are convinced that their unusual “lifestyle” enables them to share Christ with those that “might otherwise never hear about Jesus”.

Mark Zuckerberg, The Rock, Katy Perry And Oprah Winfrey Are All Thinking Of Running For President
MAY 10, 2017
(Reported By Michael Snyder) Donald Trump has proven that you don’t have to be a career politician to successfully run for president, and so now a number of top celebrities are actually seriously thinking about running against him in 2020. Unless Hillary Clinton runs again, the Democrats really don’t have an obvious choice, and so this next election cycle presents a unique opportunity for outsider candidates that may want to test the political waters. In politics, timing is everything, and for celebrities at the
peak of their popularity the 2020 election may be their best and only shot at the highest office in the land. One name that keeps coming up over and over again is Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg. As Salon has detailed, he is already behaving very much like a presidential candidate… Zuckerberg recently started his “personal challenge for 2017,” which is focused on meeting individuals in every state. Just last week Zuckerberg visited a Ford factory in Michigan and made an unexpected visit to Ohio where he was hosted by a family of Democrats that voted for Donald Trump, according to the Guardian.

10 Sad Reasons Many Christians Don’t Gather for Prayer
MAY 10, 2017
(By Kevin Senapatiratne) Most pastors tell me the most important meeting of the church is the prayer meeting. They also tell me it is the least-attended meeting in their church. I am told that people will come easy to a potluck but not to a prayer meeting. But the power of a well-attended prayer meeting is vital to a church. I have been amazed at the connection between the size of the Sunday morning service and the size of the prayer meeting. It is consistently 10 percent of the Sunday morning attendance that attends the prayer meeting.
An increase in attendance at the prayer meeting seems to increase attend on Sunday morning to get it back to that 10 percent. But people don’t seem to like to come to prayer meetings. Now, I understand that part of that has to do with spiritual warfare. The enemy would love nothing better than to have people not come to the prayer meeting. That, however, is only part of the story. There are things as leaders that you can do to help the meeting be better attended. Here are 10 ideas why people don’t come to get you started.

Elderly couple married for 62 years die together while holding hands
MAY 10, 2017
An elderly couple married for more than 60 years died within two hours of each other, while holding hands. Delma and Tom Ledbetter, from Lake Jackson, Texas, both fell ill in April. The couple’s family sent Mr Ledbetter to the same nursing home as his wife, where the pair held hands until they passed away together on 21 April. Mr Ledbetter died first, and within an hour and a half, his wife followed.

“Their love was a testimony to many, and was surely a match made in Heaven. Although the family is filled with sadness, they are left with many loving memories until the time comes that they are all together again,” an obituary for the couple reads. One of the couple’s daughters, Donetta Nichols, said they died exactly how they would have wanted. “It was exactly how they wanted to go. It couldn’t have been any better,” she told local TV station KPRC 2.

Ibuprofen taken for ONE DAY increases your risk of heart attack by Half
MAY 10, 2017
Taking common painkillers can raise heart attack risk by half after just one day, a major study warns. Experts looked at nearly 450,000 adults given non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). They include popular over-the-counter pills such as ibuprofen, and prescription-only drugs such as diclofenac. Both are taken by millions for conditions such as headaches, back pain and arthritis.
The study, published in The BMJ, said their effect on heart attack risk was almost immediate. But it was not long-lasting and wore off over time. Past studies have found the common painkillers increase risk of cardiac arrest by up to a third. Scientists fear the drugs may cause blood vessels to narrow, increase fluid retention and alter blood pressure. Canadian experts found taking any regular dose of ibuprofen for between one to seven days raised chances by 48 per cent.

Chicago inmates can now order pizza directly to their cells
MAY 10, 2017
Inmates in the Cook County Jail can now order pizza delivered directly to their cells. The medium-security prison has allowed pre-trial detainees to use their commissary to purchase pizza cooked on the premise. The “Recipe for Change” program run by local restaurant owner, Chef Bruno Abate, looks to teach inmates skills that they can use when they are released, reports the Chicago Tribune.The pizzas cost between $5 and $7 and the selection of six pies includes classics like plain margherita and sausage. “This isn’t coddling the detainees,” says sheriff spokeswoman Cara Smith who added that the sales will go towards funding the program itself. The program has been in place since April 20 and as of Monday, 208 pies have been sold.

Satanic Message, Upside Down Crosses Found at Spanish Church
MAY 10, 2017
Spanish police are reportedly investigating a case of satanic vandalism after a priest found the number 666 and upside down crosses at a Spanish church containing the Veil of Veronica, a relic believed to have touched the face of Jesus Christ. Catholic News Agency reported on Monday that a priest at the Monastery of the Holy Face in Alicante discovered the satanic 666 number on the shatter-proof glass containing the Roman Catholic relic, while several upside down crosses
were found at the Stations of the Cross, which mark Jesus’ journey toward His crucifixion. Security cameras showed that the perpetrator was a young woman who hid herself inside the church on Saturday night. Although her name has not been released, authorities have reportedly identified her, and she is due to be arrested. In addition to the satanic messages, the woman apparently stole a liturgical prayer book and another one where the liturgical acts of the monastery are recorded.

Dwayne Johnson (The Rock) Making Serious Consideration To Run for President!
MAY 10, 2017
No one gets up earlier than Dwayne Johnson. Or goes to bed later. Or is more awake during the hours in between. No one in Hollywood is more buff, more driven, or gets paid better. The man has so much charisma and ambition he can do anything. Comedy, action, pretty little cartoon voices. Some people even say he could be president. GQ’s Caity Weaver spent a few days with the ex-wrestler, pumping iron and pounding water (gotta stay hydrated!) and figuring out if The Rock is meant for higher office.
When Dwayne Johnson meets you (and I can assure you, he would love to), the first thing he will do is ask you six thousand questions about yourself, and remember the answers forever. If you are a child, good luck getting past Dwayne Johnson without a high five or some simulated roughhousing; if you’re in a wheelchair, prepare for a Beowulf-style epic poem about your deeds and bravery, composed extemporaneously, delivered to Johnson’s Instagram audience of 85 million people; if you’re dead, having shuffled off your mortal coil before you even got the chance to meet Dwayne Johnson,

Comey sought more resources for Russia probe days before being fired
MAY 10, 2017
Last week, then-FBI Director James B. Comey requested more resources from the Justice Department for his bureau’s investigation into collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russian government, according to two officials with knowledge of the discussion. Comey, who was fired by President Trump on Tuesday, made the request in a meeting last week with Rod J. Rosenstein, the deputy attorney general, and Senate Intelligence Committee members were briefed on the request Monday, the officials said.
Justice Department spokeswoman Sarah Isgur Flores said reports that Comey had requested more funding for the Russia investigation are “totally false.” Such a request, she said, “did not happen.” Rosenstein wrote the memo that was used to justify Trump’s swift and unexpected firing of Comey on Tuesday evening.Asked by reporters Wednesday whether she was briefed by Comey on requests for additional funding for the investigation, Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), the ranking Democrat on the Judiciary Committee, said: “I was not.

Top Vatican Astronomer Challenges Stephen Hawking’s Atheistic Beliefs
MAY 10, 2017
Brother Guy Consolmagno, a Jesuit priest and director of the Vatican Observatory, has challenged physicist Stephen Hawking’s atheistic beliefs, and argued that while God’s workings can in part be explained by science, God remains supernatural. Consolmagno, an astronomer who’s hosting a three-day conference on May 9–12 at the papal summer residence in Castelgandolfo, Italy, about the relationship between science and the Divine, argued that God is not simply the cause of the Big Bang.
“If you look at God as merely the thing that started the Big Bang, then you get a nature god, like Jupiter throwing around lightning bolts,” Consolmagno said, according to a Crux article on Monday. “That’s not a god I want to believe in,” he said. “There are many ideas of god, which means there are many gods I don’t believe in. “We must believe in a God who is supernatural,” he continued. “We recognize God as the one who is responsible for existence, and our science tells us how he did it.”

Franklin Graham Warns Of “Islamic Domination”
MAY 10, 2017
The world’s most populous Islamic country took another lurch backwards Tuesday when a court sentenced the capital city’s first Christian governor in half a century to two years’ imprisonment for “blasphemy.” The sentence handed down by the North Jakarta District Court was even stiffer than the one requested by Indonesian state prosecutors, who asked for a suspended sentence for outgoing Jakarta Gov. Basuki Tjahaja Purnama. “Jakarta,
Indonesia, had a rare and beautiful thing in their country – a Christian governor,” evangelical preacher Franklin Graham said in response to the trial. The governor, he commented, “was known for his honest and capable governance, but Islam wants domination, and they wanted him politically out of the picture.” Sentencing came four days after radical Islamists marched to the Supreme Court to demand a heavy sentence for Purnama.

A Troubling Trend Among Pentecostal Pastors
MAY 10, 2017
(By Shane Idleman) A few years back, I listened in astonishment as some prominent “Christian” leaders talked about replacing “preaching” with “having a conversation.” At first, I thought that they might be confusing individual conversations with how we should speak to the masses, but I was wrong. They felt that we should stop “preaching” from the pulpit and start being more passive and less confrontational. Never mind the fact that Jesus said, “I must preach the kingdom of God to other cities also, for this is why I was sent” (Luke 4:43). But according to many, it’s time to replace the pulpit with a couch and preaching with conversing.
It’s not my practice to name names or reference churches, but when they depart from truth, they open themselves up for exposure. Sadly, many churches carry their books, promote their material and seek to model their church after them. There is a very troubling trend in the evangelical church as a whole. We are in desperate need of genuine leadership—broken, humble people who are not afraid to admit that they need God; men who are more worried about prayer than about status and recognition; men who petition God rather than position themselves. Many men want the recognition, but not the brokenness; the honor, but not the humility.

Colorado Christians Repent for Being First State to Embrace Abortion
MAY 10, 2017
Fifty years ago, Colorado became the first state to legalize abortion, six years before Roe v. Wade made it legal nationwide. Like most states at the time, Colorado mandated that abortion was only allowed in cases of rape, incest, or when the mother’s life was at risk. But now, Colorado allows abortion through all nine months of pregnancy.
As 50 years of legal abortion in their state was marked, on May 4, the National Day of Prayer, a group of Christians gathered with solemn prayer that the practice will soon come to an end. “It’s significant because 50 years ago, Denver, Colorado legalized abortion and we want to see God overturn abortion and we want to be the first state to overturn it and ban it” said Rex Tonkins, Colorado coordinator for the National Day of Prayer.

US Embassy will stay in Tel Aviv and Not Be Moved To Jerusalem
MAY 10, 2017
Senior US sources said US President Donald Trump has already decided to extend the order which prevents the US Embassy in Israel from being transferred from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, 360 reporter Ariel Kahana said. A US source said Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu has already been informed of Trump’s decision. Recently, both governments agreed that this would not be the best time to move the Embassy, and US officials said Israel did not want to deal with the matter at present and had requested Trump delay the move.
The Israeli government is not surprised by Trump’s decision, but they are still very disappointed. The expectation was that Trump would make an announcement regarding Jerusalem during his upcoming May 22 visit to Israel. However, the expectation currently is that Trump will push Israel to renew negotiations with the Palestinian Authority, who will be the main focus of Trump’s visit. The next US Ambassador to Israel, David Friedman, apparently received the news before it was told to Israel.

New ‘Gray Death’ Drug Can kill With a Single Dose
MAY 10, 2017
A lethal new drug dubbed “gray death” by authorities that is dangerous to even touch with gloves is being eyed in overdose cases across Georgia, Alabama and Ohio. Investigators said the high-potency cocktail — which is comprised of heroin, fentanyl, the elephant tranquilizer carfentanil, and a synthetic opioid called U-47700 — can kill users with a single dose.
“Gray death is one of the scariest combinations that I have ever seen in nearly 20 years of forensic chemistry drug analysis,” Deneen Kilcrease, manager of the chemistry section at the Georgia Bureau of Investigation, told The Associated Press.A spokeswoman for the agency told the Associated Press that they’ve seen 50 overdoses cases involving gray death over the past three months. Users can inject, swallow, smoke or snort the drug, which varies in consistency and looks like a concrete mixture.

15 dead after intense thunderstorms hit Bihar, India
MAY 10, 2017
At least 15 people have been killed, including 7 due to lightning, after intense thunderstorms accompanied by heavy pre-monsoon rains hit the Indian state of Bihar on May 9, 2017. The storm hit Bihar, dropping temperatures, while the rest of the country still endures a sizzling heat. It destroyed standing crops, damaged houses and uprooted trees in at least 11 of 30 affected districts (out of 38 total).
“Though we are still getting reports about the damage and casualty figures from far interiors, but as of now we have reports of 15 persons killed due to nature’s fury,” said an official of the Disaster Management Department. Of the casualty figures due to lightning, two persons died in Begusarai, while one person each was killed in Kaimur, Maner, Darbhanga, Samastipur and Madhubani. Reports from far-flung areas said that trees were uprooted following thunderstorm thereby affecting power supply.

81 Percent Of Americans Are ‘Concerned About Declining Moral Behavior In Our Nation’
MAY 10, 2017
(By Michael Snyder) Could it be possible that Americans are more concerned about declining standards of morality than most of us initially thought? A very surprising new survey conducted by LifeWay Research has discovered that a whopping 81 percent of Americans agree with this statement: “I am concerned about declining moral behavior in our nation.” If you follow my work on a regular basis, you already know that moral decay is a theme that I keep coming back to time after time. To me it
is quite obvious that moral behavior is deteriorating all around us, but I had no idea that so many other Americans were deeply concerned about the exact same thing. Since so many people agree that we are facing a moral crisis, the solution should be very simple right? Unfortunately it is more complicated than that, because there is very little agreement about what our moral values should actually be. Once upon a time the Bible formed the basis for morality in American society, but today things are entirely different.

Celebrities Melt Down Over Comey Firing: ‘Full Blown Constitutional Crisis’
MAY 10, 2017
Hollywood celebrities reacted with shock and anger Tuesday following the White House’s announcement that President Donald Trump fired FBI Director James Comey. Comey, who was appointed director of the agency by former president Obama in 2013, was fired after an evaluation conducted by Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Deputy Attorney General Rod Borenstein. In his letter to Trump, Sessions wrote that “a fresh start is needed at the leadership of the FBI.”
“It is essential that we find new leadership for the FBI that restores public trust and confidence in its vital law enforcement mission,” Trump himself wrote in a letter to Comey released Tuesday. But leftist celebrities — including longtime Trump critics Rosie O’Donnell, Michael Moore, Chelsea Handler and Joss Whedon — were up in arms over Tuesday’s announcement.

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and Attorney General Jeff Sessions. “The FBI is one of our Nation’s most cherished and respected institutions and today will mark a new beginning for our crown jewel of law enforcement,” Trump said. A search for a new permanent FBI director will begin immediately.

MAY 8, 2017
In addition to the Torah, many other historical artifacts belonging to the Hellenistic and Seljuq periods, including statues, stone rubbings, jewelry, and coins were recovered. An ancient Torah estimated to be 1,500-years-old was seized from smugglers in Ayvalik, a western resort town in Turkey, the Anadolu news agency reported on Tuesday.
In addition to the Torah, many other historical artifacts belonging to the Hellenistic and Seljuq dynasty periods, including statues, stone rubbings, jewelry, and 200 ancient bronze and silver coins were recovered. Turkish law enforcement detained two suspects and later released them on probation, and believe the smugglers brought the artifacts from Istanbul and Bingol, an eastern Turkish province.

How False Prophets Deceive the Masses
MAY 8, 2017
(By Michael Youssef) There is an underhanded way to sell products called the bait-and-switch method. Here is how it works: A retailer entices a person to purchase an item. Yet, when the consumer gets ready to buy the product, he is told that there are no more in inventory. Immediately, the deceptive retailer tries to sell the consumer another product that is inferior to the one first offered. If the consumer buys it, the retailer makes a handsome profit, while the customer is swindled.

In the same way, false teachers use biblical words to capture attention and gain the trust of someone seeking the life of Jesus Christ. They use trusted terms to lure people away from the salvation message of the life of Jesus Christ. Essentially, they are the masters of the bait-and-switch method. Deception is a principal tool used by the enemy. Names such as devil and Satan are significant words because they mean “deceiver” and “slanderer.”

Mandatory Evacuations Grow in Florida and Georgia From Raging Wildfire
MAY 9, 2017
A mandatory evacuation has broadened as a wildfire near the Georgia-Florida line threatens small communities on the edge of the Okefenokee Swamp. Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge supervisory ranger Susan Heisey said Monday that Moniac and Canaday Loop are ordered to evacuate. She says the fire has crossed state Highway 94 south of the refuge. She doesn’t know how many have evacuated the area.
The unincorporated community of St. George already was under a mandatory evacuation order and Charlton County schools closed Monday. The fire was started by a lightning strike April 6 and has burned 129,856 acres (52,550 hectares). Wind gusts and dry conditions are raising the risk of it spreading. Television stations in northeast Florida report smoke can be seen across Nassau, Clay and Duval counties. Officials urge residents to stay indoors.

VP Pence Joining Franklin Graham to Stand for Persecuted Christians
MAY 9, 2017
Vice President Mike Pence will address hundreds of persecuted Christians from around the globe at a Washington, D.C., summit hosted by evangelist Franklin Graham this week. Pence, an evangelical Christian who has made religious freedom a priority, is scheduled to address the gathering Thursday morning. Franklin Graham recently discussed the upcoming World Summit in Defense of Persecuted Christians on the “Washington Watch” radio program with host Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council.
Graham and Perkins talked about worldwide persecution and the violence committed against Christians and other religious minorities around the world. “I want our politicians to see what is happening and I want the voices of these people who have been persecuted, I want their voices to be heard. I want to give them a stage for them to be able to tell their stories and do it right there in Washington, where hopefully, we can see some policy changes,” Graham said of the summit.

DEVELOPING: Heavily-Armed Cops Storm Paris train station in hunt for ‘Three Dangerous Men’
MAY 9, 2017
One of the busiest train stations in Europe was placed on lockdown as heavily armed cops reportedly hunted for ‘three dangerous men’. French authorities confirmed a police operation was underway at Gare du Nord – the station at which Eurostar trains arrive in Paris from London. The Paris police headquarters said the operation was to “dispel any doubt” about a threat, but would not give more details. However reports in Le Parisien claimed cops were hunting for “three
dangerous men”. Officers are said to have emptied a train of more than 200 people that was arriving from the northern town of Valenciennes as they searched for the trio, whose profiles were apparently flagged to French security chiefs by a “partner country” on Friday. Since then, there have been three reported sightings in Paris, Marseille and Bordeaux. The latest sighting was made by a conductor and a ticket vendor, the paper claimed, and sparked the huge police presence.

Husband Reunited With Family After ISIS Held His Wife, 2 Small Children Captive for 3 YearsE
MAY 9, 2017
Stuck in the middle of the ongoing fight between ISIS and the national Iraqi military, the Iraqi civilian population knows the emotional and physical trauma of war first-hand. On a daily basis, global news media, missionaries, friends and families have expressed their concerns for ISIS captives in Northern Iraq. One Iraqi citizen, Nezar, whose last name is being withheld for security reasons, has joined many in their cries for help.
Nezar, a Yazidi Christian, is a father and husband who lives in a village outside of Sinjar City, about a two-hour car ride from Mosul. Several months ago, he met Christian missionary and Free Burma Rangers (FBR) founder, David Eubank. Eubank is an American who has been working with the Iraqi military to fight ISIS and support civilians by supplying them with food, medical aid and pastoral care.

CDC Warns of Tick-Related Virus That Kills 10%, Permanently Disables 50%
MAY 8, 2017
The Centers for Disease Control is warning of the emergence of a far deadlier tick-related virus than Lyme Disease – one that kills 10 percent of those infected and permanently disables the other 50 percent. It’s called POW for short, or Powassan, and it, like Lyme, is carried by deer. Recent cases have been noted in the Northeast U.S. and the Great Lakes states. The virus can cause inflammation of the brain, leading to death in 10 percent of cases and permanent disability in 50 percent of cases.
Signs and symptoms of infection can include fever, headache, vomiting, weakness, confusion, seizures, and memory loss, according to the CDC. Long-term neurological problems may occur. There is no specific treatment, but people with severe POW virus illnesses often need to be hospitalized to receive respiratory support, intravenous fluids, or medications to reduce swelling in the brain. “About 15% of patients who are infected and have symptoms are not going survive,”

Shark attacks on the rise along the California coast
MAY 8, 2017
Shark attacks are on the rise along the California coast. “Beach access to the water is closed today because we had a girl get bit by a shark,” said one park official. Beachgoers were greeted by scary warning after 35-year-old Leeanne Ericson was attacked in knee-deep water north of San Diego last week. “It was a large wound,” said her surgeon, Dr. Gail Tominaga. Tominaga said Ericson likely survived because of quick action on the beach.
“That was crucial because they were able to put a big dressing on and a partial tourniquet on to help the bleeding, you know, decrease the bleeding,” Tominaga said. Marine biologist Dave Bader of the Aquarium of the Pacific said that in his experience, a shark is never intentionally going after a person. “We know what great white sharks like to eat and especially as juveniles, we know they like to eat small fish,” Bader says. “Nothing on you looks like a small fish.”

For the First Time, Russia Ranked Among Worst Violators of Religious Freedom
MAY 8, 2017
Russia’s ongoing crackdown on religious minorities, foreign missionaries, and evangelists has earned it a spot among the worst countries in the world for religious freedom. The US Commission on International Religious Freedom (USCIRF), which flags religious freedom violators for the State Department, listed the former Soviet state among six new Tier 1 “countries of particular concern” (CPC) in its latest annual report, released Wednesday.
It is the first time in the commission’s almost 20-year history that Russia has made the list. A total of 16 countries currently hold the CPC designation, and another dozen are being reviewed as Tier 2. Russia is the only country whose repression of religious freedom has intensified and expanded since USCIRF began monitoring it, officials said. The report dedicated seven pages to its problematic policies, from the “persecution of religious minorities in the occupied areas of Crimea and Donbas” to recent moves against non-Orthodox Christians in its heartland.

Colorado teacher placed on leave for Trump piñata
MAY 8, 2017
A Weld County high school teacher has been placed on paid administrative leave after photos of a controversial Cinco de Mayo incident of students smashing a pinata with President Donald Trump’s picture on it circulated online.

Monsanto accused of hiring army of trolls to silence online dissent
MAY 8, 2017
Biotech giant Monsanto is being accused of hiring, through third parties, an army of Internet trolls to counter negative comments, while citing positive “ghost-written” pseudo-scientific reports which downplay the potential risks of their products. The documents emerged during pre-trials on 50 lawsuits against Monsanto which were pending in the US District Court in San Francisco. The plaintiffs allege that exposure to the biotech giant’s flagship product, the herbicide
Roundup, caused them or their relatives to develop non-Hodgkin lymphoma, while Monsanto concealed the potential risks. In March, a judge ruled, despite Monsanto’s objections, that the documents obtained by the plaintiffs could be released. The court papers are being gathered at the website of food-safety whistleblower organization US Right to Know.The plaintiffs alleged that Monsanto targeted all online materials and even social media comments that indicate potential dangers of its products, according to one document released late in April.

Norway’s Progress Party Calls For Ban On Circumcision Of Boys
MAY 8, 2017
The Progress Party in Norway voted on Saturday in favor of a law banning ritual circumcision of children under the age of 16, a day after the environment committee of Belgium’s Parliament of Wallonia voted in favor of banning ritual slaughter, posing a threat to both shechita (kosher slaughter) and brit mila (circumcision) in Europe. Proponents of the Norwegian bill, which was discussed during the party’s national gathering over the weekend, claim that circumcision constitutes

mental and physical harm to children and constitutes a serious violation of children’s rights. The Progress Party is the third-largest party – with 29 of 169 seats in parliament it serves as the junior partner in Prime Minister Erna Solberg’s cabinet. Reacting to the news, Rabbi Menachem Margolin, general director of the European Jewish Association, wrote a letter to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Diaspora Affairs Minister Naftali Bennett calling on them to urgently establish a joint working team for both government offices and Jewish organizations in Europe, in order to prevent the spread of anti-Jewish legislation.

Middle school student suspended for ‘liking’ photo of gun on Instagram
MAY 8, 2017
An Edgewood Middle School student was handed a 10-day suspension for “liking” a picture of a gun on Instagram with the caption “ready.” The parents of Zachary Bowlin posted a picture of the intended suspension notice which read, “The reason for the intended suspension is as follows: Liking a post on social media that indicated potential school violence.” “I
was livid, I mean, I’m sitting here thinking ‘you just suspended him for ten days for liking a picture of a gun on a social media site,” father Marty Bowlin said. “He never shared, he never commented, he never made a threatening post… anything on the site, just liked it.” The picture in question is of an airsoft gun, and according to the students’ parents, their child didn’t comment on the post but simply liked the picture.

Facebook Removes Tens of Thousands Of Accounts In “Fake News” Purge
MAY 8, 2017
Facebook says it has deleted tens of thousands of accounts in Britain ahead of the June 8 general election in a drive to battle fake news. The tech giant also took out newspaper advertisements in Britain’s media offering advice on how to spot such stories. The ads suggest that readers should be “skeptical of headlines,” and to “look closely at the URL.” The
company says it has made improvements to help them detect fake news accounts more effectively. Simon Milner, the tech firm’s U.K. director of policy, says the platform wants to get to the “root of the problem” and is working with outside organizations to fact check and analyze content around the election.

Emma Watson Wins MTV’s First-Ever Genderless Award
MAY 8, 2017
Actress Emma Watson won on Sunday night the first-ever gender-neutral MTV TV & Movie acting award for her performance in “Beauty and the Beast,” hailing the recognition as a way to show that empathy has “no limits.” “The first acting award … that doesn’t separate nominees based on their sex says something about how we perceive the human experience,” Watson said at the awards ceremony in Los Angeles, BBC Newsbeat reported.
“MTV’s move to create a genderless award for acting will mean something different to everyone,” she continued. “But to me it indicates that acting is about the ability to put yourself in someone else’s shoes and that doesn’t need to be separated into two different categories. “Empathy and the ability to use your imagination should have no limits. This is very meaningful to me.”

Dozens of members of Congress signed a letter urging Secretary of State Rex Tillerson to reverse the longstanding U.S. policy of not allowing Americans to list Jerusalem as part of Israel on the birthplace section in passports. “We write to urge you to revise the State Department’s policy regarding the birthplace designation on passports and consular reports of
birth abroad for American citizens born in Jerusalem,” 52 lawmakers, led by Rep. Ron DeSantis (R.-Fla.), wrote to Tillerson this week, the Washington Free Beacon reported. “Under the current policy, Americans born in Jerusalem have no country of birth listed on these documents; they are identified only as having been born in Jerusalem,” the lawmakers wrote. “We ask that you change the policy to permit Jerusalem-born Americans to have ‘Israel’ listed as their birthplace.”

ISIS leader in Afghanistan killed as 50 US special forces and 40 Afghan commandos storm compound
MAY 8, 2017
The head of Islamic State in Afghanistan has been killed – according to an Afghan government statement. Abdul Hasib was killed in a raid in the early hours of last Thursday in Nangarhar province, in which 50 U.S special forces and 40 Afghan commandos raided his compound. Ashraf Ghani, president of Afghanistan confirmed Hasib’s death in a statement following speculation the ISIS boss had been taken out in the operation. Hasib was appointed last year following the death of his predecessor Hafiz Saeed in a U.S drone strike.
He is believed to have ordered a series of high profile attacks including one in March on the main military hospital in Kabul by a group of militants disguised as doctors. A joint US-Afghan army statement released after the operation said troops had been involved in an ‘intense’ three-hour firefight. The statement said: “Within a few minutes of landing, our combined force came under intense fire from multiple directions and well-prepared fighting positions.

HBO’s ‘The Leftovers’ Explores the Fallout of a “Godless Rapture”
MAY 8, 2017
A few years ago, a close friend of mine—a youth minister on his way home from a mission trip—died in a tragic car accident. His wasn’t a martyr’s death, nor a long-fought battle against illness. It was swift. The call to pray for him came at 11 that night, and a couple of hours later came news of his passing. My prayers (or lack thereof) felt meaningless, his death purposeless. My friend was gone, and I’d been left behind.

For the Christian, death is never final. Paul himself euphemizes the death of saints as “falling asleep,” and death is filled with purpose as those in Christ await resurrection on the Last Day. Such hope and truth, however, may be difficult to believe for the friends and family left in the wake of death’s throes. It is the tension of the now and not yet, of knowing spiritual truth but wrestling to believe it—a whisper of doubt that asks, “What if there is no purpose in loss?”

Many Leading Scientists Now Warning Of Coming Apocalypse
MAY 8, 2017
While apocalyptic beliefs about the end of the world have, historically, been the subject of religious speculation, they are increasingly common among some of the leading scientists today. This is a worrisome fact, given that science is based not on faith and private revelation, but on observation and empirical evidence. Perhaps the most prominent figure with an anxious outlook on humanity’s future is Stephen Hawking. Last year, he wrote the following in a Guardian article: Now,
more than at any time in our history, our species needs to work together. We face awesome environmental challenges: climate change, food production, overpopulation, the decimation of other species, epidemic disease, acidification of the oceans. Together, they are a reminder that we are at the most dangerous moment in the development of humanity. We now have the technology to destroy the planet on which we live, but have not yet developed the ability to escape it. There is not a single point here that is inaccurate or hyperbolic. For example, consider that the hottest 17 years on record have all occurred since 2000, with a single exception (namely, 1998), and with 2016 being the hottest ever.

Former Reagan Administration Official Is Warning Of A Financial Collapse Some Time ‘Between August And November’
MAY 8, 2017
ATTENTION: The following report does not reflect the views or opinions of End Time Headlines
(Reported By Michael Snyder) If a former Reagan administration official is correct, we are likely to see the next major financial collapse by the end of 2017. According to Wikipedia, David Stockman “is an author, former businessman and U.S. politician who served as a Republican U.S. Representative from the state of Michigan (1977–1981) and as the Director of the Office of Management and Budget (1981–1985) under President Ronald Reagan.” He has been frequently interviewed by mainstream news outlets such as CNBC, Bloomberg and PBS, and he is a highly respected voice in the financial community. Like other analysts, Stockman believes that the U.S. economy is in dire shape,
and he told Greg Hunter during a recent interview that he is convinced that the S&P 500 could soon crash “by 40% or even more”… The market is pricing itself for perfection for all of eternity. This is crazy. . . . I think the market could easily drop to 1,600 or 1,300. It could drop by 40% or even more once the fantasy ends. When the government shows its true colors, that it’s headed for a fiscal blood bath when this crazy notion that there is going to be some Trump fiscal stimulus is put to rest once and for all. I mean it’s not going to happen. They can’t pass a tax cut that big without a budget resolution that incorporated $10 trillion or $15 trillion in debt over the next decade. It’s just not going to pass Congress. . . . I think this is the greatest sucker’s rally we have ever seen.”

Texas governor signs bill targeting sanctuary cities
MAY 8, 2017
Texas Gov. Greg Abbott signed a bill Sunday prohibiting the state’s cities and counties from enacting so-called “sanctuary” laws that prevent local law enforcement officers from inquiring about the immigration status of anyone they detain. Abbott took the unusual step of signing the bill on Facebook with no advanced public notice. He said Texas residents
expect lawmakers to “keep us safe” and said similar laws have already been tested in federal court, where opponents have already been hinting the bill will be immediately challenged.”Let’s face it, the reason why so many people come to America is because we are a nation of laws and Texas is doing its part to keep it that way,” Abbott said. His spokesman, John Wittman, later said they chose to sign the bill on a Facebook livestream because that’s “where most people are getting their news nowadays.”

ABC, CBS, NBC join CNN in censoring Trump Ad
MAY 7, 2017
The Donald Trump campaign Friday announced that ABC, CBS and NBC has joined CNN in a campaign to censor its 100-day ad, “setting a chilling precedent against free speech rights.” Lara Trump, the wife of Eric Trump and daughter-in-law of President Trump, a consultant for the campaign Donald J. Trump for President Inc., said: “Apparently, the mainstream media are champions of the First Amendment only when it serves their own political views. Faced with an ad that doesn’t fit their biased narrative,
CNN, ABC, CBS, and NBC have now all chosen to block our ad. This is an unprecedented act of censorship in America that should concern every freedom-loving citizen.” WND reported earlier this month when CNN launched the censor-Trump effort. At that time, campaign Executive Director Michael Glassner said in a statement the action by CNN “is censorship pure and simple.” “By rejecting our ad, CNN has proven that it supports censorship, is biased and fears an opposing point of view,” he charged.

Emmanuel Macron, 39, Becomes France’s Youngest President Ever Elected
MAY 7, 2017
The pro-EU politician Emmanuel Macron was tonight elected as France’s youngest ever president with a projected landslide of 65.5 per cent. Macron, 39, beat far-right National Front (FN) candidate Marine Le Pen, 48, in an election that will have widespread repercussions for the future of Europe. An official preliminary result released at 8pm local time showed Macron received 65.5 per cent of the vote and had earned a clear 31-point victory over Le Pen. Just 15 minutes

after the exit polls were announced, Le Pen conceded and revealed she phoned Macron to ‘congratulate’ him on his election victory. And at 11pm local time, Macron addressed thousands of his adoring supporters who had gathered at his election victory rally outside the Louvre in central Paris. He walked across the sprawling historic courtyard to the music of Beethoven’s ‘Ode to Joy’, the European Union anthem, and said: ‘Europe and the world are waiting for us to defend the spirit of the enlightenment everywhere.’

LGBT Canadians are Furious After Catholic School Cancels LGBT Play for 5-Year-Olds
MAY 7, 2017
(Reported By Todd Starnes) LGBT Canadians are furious after a Catholic school district canceled performances of a play about gender identity – meant for children as young as 5 years old. “I fear these cancellations may be based on misinformation, grown out of fear, intolerance, transphobia, homophobia and misogyny,” wrote Jessica Carmichael, the artistic director of the Carousel Playhouse.
The playhouse had been scheduled to perform a play called, “Boys, Girls and Other Mythological Creatures.” The show had already been booked in five elementary schools in the Niagara Catholic School District. The play features an 8-year-oid boy who dresses as a girl and questions his gender, The Globe and Mail reports.

Actor Who Played Jesus in ‘Passion of the Christ’ Reveals He Was ‘Struck By Lightning’ During Sermon on the Mount Filming
MAY 7, 2017
Jim Caviezel, the actor who played Jesus in Mel Gibson’s “The Passion of the Christ,” has revealed that he was struck by lightning while filming the epic movie. The actor said they were filming the scene of the Sermon on the Mount in Rome when the bizarre event happened, the Catholic News Agency reported “I climbed the mountain, clouds had formed, and
five seconds before the stroke I had felt what was going to happen,” he recalled in an interview with Polish journalist and film critic Lukasz Adamski. “Suddenly, I was struck by the lightning.” Caviezel said he was struck just as Gibson shouted “action.” He did not say how he managed to survive the incident, which he admitted “terrified” him. At the same time though, he said he “felt peace on the inside.”

MAY 7, 2017
Daytime talk show host Ellen DeGeneres says President Donald Trump is not welcome on her show. In an interview with Today host Matt Lauer Thursday, DeGeneres was asked if she would ever invite the president on her show for an interview, as she did with former president Barack Obama and former 2016 presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton. “Um,
no,” she said. “Because I’m not going to change his mind.” “He’s against everything that I stand for,” the Ellen host further explained. “We need to look at someone else who looks different than us and believes in something that we don’t believe in and still accept them, and still let them have their rights.” Obama twice guested on DeGeneres’ highly-rated show; once in 2011 and again last February.

Smithsonian Channel Spotlights Stone Tablet Believed to Confirm Biblical Tower of Babel
MAY 7, 2017
The first episode of the new season of the Smithsonian Channel’s “Secrets” series spotlights a stone tablet discovered in Babylon more than 100 years ago that is believed to confirm the existence of the biblical Tower of Babel as outlined in the Book of Genesis. “Ancient texts have allowed experts to imagine what the building might have looked like,” a promotional video for the episode outlines, pointing to the Scriptures.
“But now, astounding new evidence has emerged. Inscribed on the surface of a privately owned tablet, is an image that sensationally reveals what the Tower of Babel looked like.” Although the tablet, which dates to approximately 600 B.C., was unearthed a century ago, it was just recently that the piece was brought to ancient text expert Dr. Andrew George of the University of London, who noted that the stone bears an image seemingly depicting the biblical tower.

ALL IN YOUR HEAD – Scientists Now Claiming “Religious Beliefs” Linked to Traumatic Brain Injuries
MAY 7, 2017
A traumatic brain injury could end up making people more extreme in their religious beliefs, according to new research. Scientists from Northwestern University in Illinois claim they have discovered a connection between head trauma and a person’s unwillingness to accept new ideas – a link, researchers say, makes some people more zealous about their faith. Writing in the journal ‘Neuropsychologia’, the study’s lead neurologist, Jordan Grafman, says that religious “flexibility” is dependent on the health of the area of the brain governing “openness.”
After consulting a registry of around 2,000 US soldiers who had suffered head trauma during the Vietnam War, Grafman conducted tests – including a ‘religious fundamentalism scale’ – on 119 veterans who had experienced penetrating brain injuries. Grafman’s team then used CT scans to identify lesions on the area of participants’ brains known as the ventromedial prefrontal cortex. This area is thought to play a cognitive role in critical thinking, problem-solving, planning, and spiritual experiences.

Texas students may be required to pass citizenship test to graduate
mAY 7, 2017
Lawmakers are considering a bill that would require high school students to pass a civics test in order to graduate. House Bill 1776 would replace a U.S. history course that students take at the end of a semester with a test that immigrants take to get their U.S. citizenship. But, unlike the real civics test, the test for students would be multiple choice. On Wednesday, the

Texas House tentatively approved the bill. Supporters say that the bill’s goal is to ensure that students are proficient in U.S. history. KENS 5 quizzed a handful of adults to see how they fared. We pulled 10 questions from a U.S. Customs and Immigration Services practice exam. Among the questions: Who would serve as president if the current president and vice president could longer serve?

Sonic boom rocks Florida as secret Air Force X-37B spaceship lands after 2-year mission…
MAY 7, 2017
The landing of an unmanned military space plane at Kennedy Space Center Sunday morning concluded an almost two-year mission in orbit, according to the U.S. Air Force. The Air Force tweeted shortly after 8 a.m. that the reusable X-37B Orbital Test Vehicle had landed safely, completing its fourth classified mission. OTV-4 launched from Cape Canaveral on a
United Launch Alliance Atlas V rocket on May 20, 2015. Air Force officials have called the X-37B program, which is managed by the Air Force Rapid Capabilities Office, “the newest and most advanced re-entry spacecraft.” The Air Force’s two mini-shuttles have completed two missions each since the first launch from the Cape in 2010. Three prior X-37B landings occurred at Vandenberg Air Force Base in California.

FALLING AWAY: Cuba Hosts First “Transgender Mass”
MAY 7, 2017
For decades belonging to a religion and being anything but heterosexual was stigmatized in Communist-ruled, macho Cuba, making the Mass held by three transgender pastors in the western Cuban city of Matanzas all the more groundbreaking. Rainbow flags decorated the chapel, while the pastors, who had flown in from Brazil, Canada and the United States, wore stoles in the trans hues of light blue, pink and white and the congregation swayed to Caribbean beats.

Friday was the first time a trans pastor held a Holy Communion in Cuba, highlighting how much the island nation has changed since both religious believers and homosexuals went to “correctional” labor camps in the early years after the 1959 revolution. “Tonight has been a night of celebration of equality between all people, marking a new era for Cuba,” said Alexya Salvador, a Brazilian trans pastor, born Alexander, wearing a black dress with a white clerical collar and lacy sleeves she made herself.

‘Blue Whale’ Suicide Game Becomes Latest Teen Craze
MAY 7, 2017
Authorities in the U.K. are warning parents to be extra watchful of their teens following the release of the online game craze “Blue Whale Challenge,” which eggs participants to take their own lives. The Express said the disturbing game originated from Russia and is reportedly the cause of many teen deaths through suicide. The group behind the online game gives participating teens challenging tasks that they need to complete within 50 days. While the initial tasks are fear-
inducing such as watching horror films and waking up at odd hours, other challenges range from the sickening to absolutely terrifying such as self-harm and eventually, suicide. Woodlands School deputy headmaster David Wright warned parents of the existence of the sick game. “We have discovered a game through the police that we think you should be aware of. It is called the Blue Whale game and is played via many social media platforms,” the school official said.

BREAKING NEWS: Fuego Volcano Erupts In Guatemala – Strongest Eruption Since 2012
MAY 6, 2017
Guatemala’s Fuego volcano erupted at 13:15 UTC on May 5, 2017, producing pyroclastic flows and ejecting thick volcanic ash cloud to an estimated altitude of 5 km (16 405 feet) above sea level. INSIVUMEH is describing it as one of the strongest eruptions in recent years, recommending CONRED to raise the alert level to Orange. In a special bulletin released 17:00 UTC on May 5, INSIVUMEH said volcanic ash cloud is moving more than 50 km (31 miles) to the south,
southwest and west, generating ashfall in San Pedro Yepocapa, Morelia, Santa Sofía, El Porvenir, Palo Verde and others on this side, like Santa Lucia Cotzumalguapa, Siquinala, San Andres Osuna, Chuchu and La Reunión. Ash is being produced by pyroclastic flows down the Trinidad, Las Lajas, Ceniza and Santa Teresa drainages. This is the strongest eruption since 2012, INSIVUMEH said and added it forced the evacuation of the village of Sangre de Cristo (population 300), located on the west flank.

Hundreds rescued as police smash international pedophile ring
MAY 7, 2017
Nearly 900 suspected pedophiles have been arrested and almost 300 children identified or rescued from their abusers following the massive takedown of an underground online pedophile network, US and European police said Friday. A more than two-year investigation into the notorious Playpen network and its members led to the arrests, the Federal
Bureau of Investigation and Europol said, an announcement that came just days after a US court sentenced Playpen founder and administrator Steven Chase to 30 years in prison. The arrest of Florida-based Chase in December 2014 set off a sweeping global probe into the users of the members-only forum. Playpen was buried deep online in what is known as the “darknet,” where Tor anonymity software and encryption hide often illegal activities.

Elderly Ex-Vicar ‘Marries’ Male Model 54 Years Younger, Wants Church of England to ‘Move On’ With the Times
MAY 6, 2017
A retired vicar with the Church of England has “wed” a young Romanian model 54 years his junior, and now wants the Church to get with the times in regard to same-sex relationships. Philip Clements, 78, tied the knot to Florin Marin, 24, last month at the registry office in Ramsgate after meeting on a dating website two years ago. “I’ve been a long time looking for you, Florin. And then I found you.
Where have you been the last 78 years? Mostly non-existent,” he said. Marin has defended the relationship and the 54-year age gap, stating that he prefers the elderly. “All my friends know that my type is old people because they have more experience in life,” he said. “From the young people I have dated in the past, I have learned nothing.” Clements, who served as the vicar of Kent for 50 years, says that he wants the Church of England to change its ways and become accepting of the feelings of homosexuals.

Max Lucado’s Daughter Asks Why Atheists Are ‘More Loving’ Than Christians
MAY 6, 2017
Andrea Lucado, a writer and daughter of renowned best-selling Christian preacher Max Lucado, has opened up about some of her struggles with faith, including wondering why some atheists seem “more loving” than many Christians. Lucado wrote in a blog, posted on her father’s website on Thursday, about how she has always questioned stories, including biblical ones, and sought answers ever since she was a child.
“Curiosity and questioning are what have led me to deeper truths about God and about myself and others. But when you grow up as a pastor’s daughter, there are expectations,” she began, noting that her father has been the pastor of Oak Hills Church in San Antonio for almost 30 years, or her entire life. Lucado reflected that on one hand, it helped her grow strong as a believer in Jesus, but on the other, she found it difficult to be raised in front of a congregation that expected her to act, look, and carry herself a specific way.

18,000 Cattle Dead After Extreme Flash Flooding in Kenya
MAY 6, 2017
Livestock farmers in Samburu County are counting losses after an estimated 18,000 heads of livestock were swept by flash floods following a heavy downpour in the county. Livelihoods are now under threat in an area that has suffered the blunt of drought that has left hundreds of livestock dead due to starvation.Speaking to Citizen Digital on phone, area Member of Parliament, Alois Lentoimanga said that the most affected areas by floods are Nyiro,
Ndoto, Elbarta, Nachola, Angata and Baawaa wards where households have also been swept away by the floods. Lentoimanga is now appealing to the government and the Kenya Red Cross to intervene, describing the situation as dire. According to Joseph Lekaato, a resident of Bendera village in Samburu North Sub County, this is the worst loss that has never been experienced in the region. “We have lost millions of shillings after our cattle, camels, goats, sheep and donkeys died of hunger and now rainfall,” Lekaato said.

Hundreds of Leopard Sharks Wash Up Dead on San Francisco Beaches
MAY 6, 2017
For seven weeks now, hundreds upon hundreds of leopard shark corpses have been washing up on the beaches of San Francisco Bay, turning the City by the Bay into the “Dead Shark Capital of California.” A similar incident occurred in 2011, when the beautiful beaches of San Francisco Bay were choked with the fetid corpses of leopard sharks. Similar die-offs have been reported going back to 1967. Okihiro’s necropsy found that the sharks were being killed by infections, for the most part. When a marine animal like a shark gets an infection,
it’s usually been caused by dirty and diseased water. But the water in the San Francisco Bay is famously clean, which has made the cause of this phenomenon a mystery. Other marine animals, like manta rays and halibuts, have also been turning up, but the majority of the dead are leopard sharks. “We can’t actually keep up with the volume of calls we get on a day-to-day basis,” said Sean Van Sommeran, executive director and founder of the Pelagic Shark Research Foundation, to SF Gate. “This is just the tip of the iceberg. We’re only seeing a fraction of the actual losses.”

Canadian passports will have new marker for “transgender travellers”
MAY 6, 2017
Transgender travellers will soon have another option to tick off on their passport other than “male” or “female.” Justice Minister Jody Wilson-Raybould said the government is working to update its gender identity policies right across federal departments, and they will include a revamped travel document. “The prime minister is very mindful of perhaps a third box or an ability to mark something other than male or female.
This work is being undertaken at Passport Canada,” she said. “Individual ministers and (people) within their departments are recognizing that this bill has been introduced, that there is work that needs to continue to be taken.” Wilson-Raybould was testifying before the Senate legal and constitutional affairs committee, which is studying government legislation to protect the human rights and security of Canadians based on gender identity and gender expression.

Atheist Group Threatens To Sue Trump Over Religious Liberty Executive Order
MAY 7, 2017
A Wisconsin-based atheist group is asking a federal judge to strike down President Donald Trump’s latest executive order, which is designed to protect religious freedoms. The Freedom from Religion Foundation (FFRF) filed a lawsuit just hours after President Trump signed the executive order that would block the enforcement of the Johnson Amendment. The 1954 amendment has prohibited tax-exempt charitable organizations such as churches from participating in political
campaigns. Trump’s order would prohibit the Treasury Department from taking any “adverse action” against churches or religious organizations for political speech. “Today my administration is leading by example as we take historic steps to protect religious liberty in the United States of America,” the president said Thursday as he signed the order. He said he was giving churches their voices back.

Speculations on Biblical End Times Rise Anew Amid Nuclear War Fears, Natural Disasters
MAY 7, 2017
With the likelihood of a major military conflict—if not a nuclear World War 3—involving North Korea and the United States looming larger by the day, speculations about the biblical end times appear to be mounting once again. Further stoking the fire, the U.S. House of Representatives overwhelmingly voted Thursday to impose new sanctions on North Korea amid heightened tensions over that pariah nation’s nuclear and ballistic missile programs, according to Fox News.
The same news outlet reported that Pentagon officials are seeing more evidence of a North Korean military connection with Iran, another country that poses a security challenge to the U.S. Early this week, PRRI, a well-known public polling firm, circulated a press release underscoring some of its past findings on Americans’ end times views, Faithwire reported. Although the findings were gathered more than four years ago, PRRI’s Research Director Dan Cox told the news outlet this week that those views haven’t changed all that much.

Actor Who Played Jesus in ‘Passion of the Christ’ Reveals He Was ‘Struck By Lightning’ During Sermon on the Mount Filming
MAY 7, 2017
Jim Caviezel, the actor who played Jesus in Mel Gibson’s “The Passion of the Christ,” has revealed that he was struck by lightning while filming the epic movie. The actor said they were filming the scene of the Sermon on the Mount in Rome when the bizarre event happened, the Catholic News Agency reported “I climbed the mountain, clouds had formed, and

five seconds before the stroke I had felt what was going to happen,” he recalled in an interview with Polish journalist and film critic Lukasz Adamski. “Suddenly, I was struck by the lightning.” Caviezel said he was struck just as Gibson shouted “action.” He did not say how he managed to survive the incident, which he admitted “terrified” him. At the same time though, he said he “felt peace on the inside.”

US dismisses Russia’s ban on military aircraft over Syria safe zones
MAY 6, 2017
A State Department official on Friday said that the Russian proposal calling to bar U.S. military aircrafts from flying over designated safe zones cannot “limit” the U.S.’s mission against ISIS in the country in any way. “The coalition will continue to strike ISIS targets in Syria,” the official told The Wall Street Journal. “The campaign to defeat ISIS will continue at the same relentless pace as it is proceeding now.”
A deal hammered out by Russia, Turkey and Iran to set up “de-escalation zones” in mostly opposition-held parts of Syria went into effect Saturday. The plan is the latest international attempt to reduce violence in the war-ravaged country, and is the first to envisage armed foreign monitors on the ground in Syria. The United States is not party to the agreement and the Syrian rivals have not signed on to the deal. The armed opposition, instead, was highly critical of the proposal, saying it lacks legitimacy.

Minnesota measles outbreak grows to 44 cases…
MAY 6, 2017
New numbers from the Minnesota Department of Health show the measles outbreak in the state is growing, CBS Minnesota reports. There are now 44 cases reported in Minnesota, which is up from 41 on Thursday. The outbreak is primarily in the state’s large Somali-American community, where many parents avoid the measles-mumps-rubella vaccine because of unfounded fears that it causes autism.
All but two of the cases involve unvaccinated patients.Health officials are now offering new guidelines for the measles vaccination as new cases become a daily occurrence. “We’re very early in the outbreak,” said Dr. Shane McAllister, assistant professor in pediatric infectious disease and immunology at the University of Minnesota’s Masonic Children’s Hospital. “We’re going to be seeing this for a while.”

A New Jersey man arrested for trying to kill his family dog has been charged with attempting to support the Islamic State. He allegedly revealed plans to detonate a pressure cooker bomb in New York City. The Justice Department announced that Gregory Lepsky, 20, a US citizen from Point Pleasant, New Jersey, appeared in court Friday to face charges of attempting to provide material support to the Islamic State
(IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) for his plan to construct and use a bomb similar to the one detonated at the 2013 Boston Marathon.According to the criminal complaint filed on Thursday, New Jersey law enforcement first encountered Lepsky in February, when they responded to a call from one of Lepsky’s family members who said he was attempting to butcher the family dog.

Over 30 Christians, Including American Family With Children, Detained Overnight in China
MAY 6, 2017
Police officers raided a house church meeting in China’s southern Guangdong province on Wednesday evening, detaining 30 of the members in attendance including the pastor and an American couple with two children. More than 20 officers broke into Zhongfu Wanmin Church approximately a half hour into their evening service on May 3. The church members attempted to take pictures of the raid, but officers confiscated all cell phones, ID cards, and bank cards.
“How could the police take away their bank cards?” a local pastor asked while recounting the events to a ChinaAid reporter. “This is a very recent [change in behavior for officers.]” During the raid, the pastor, Li Peng, was beaten by officers for trying to take pictures. Li was detained with the 30 other members taken away from the church and interrogated overnight, but while most of the detainees were released the following morning, Li was not.

Pierce County, WA Making Preparations For Eruptions From Mount St. Helens and Mt. Rainier
MAY 5, 2017
Pierce County will prepare for the possibility of eruptions from Mount Rainier and Mount Saint Helens. Officials are enlisting help from halfway around the world. Scientists from Colombia will be there Thursday. Both countries have seen eruptions that caused deadly disasters, and the conversation happening in Pierce County is how to prepare for the next one. The delegation from Colombia will be visiting both Mount Rainier and Mount St. Helens. Mount St Helens erupted in
1980, killed nearly 60 people and destroyed hundreds of homes. Just last year, the U.S. Geological Survey named Mount Rainier one of the most dangerous in the world, in part due to the many communities surrounding the mountain. Experts from both the U.S. and Colombia will focus their meetings this week on emergency preparedness — what each have learned during their respective disasters and how to minimize the most risks to people living near these volcanoes.

Court orders State Dept to release Clinton emails on Benghazi attack
MAY 5, 2017
A Washington DC federal court judge has ordered the State Department to turn over Hillary Clinton’s emails that immediately followed the terrorist attack in Benghazi to the conservative watchdog group, Judicial Watch. US District Judge Amy Berman Jackson reviewed the documents and rejected the government’s contention that the records had been properly withheld under FOIA exemption.
The “Defendant contends that it properly withheld eight identical paragraphs in two different emails, which were summaries of calls between the President of the United States and the Presidents of Libya and Egypt in the aftermath of the Benghazi attack,” wrote Judge Jackson in her memorandum opinion on March 20. The State Department argued the summaries were meant to provide information to senior officials to be used in their decision making on how to respond to a national security crisis.

Major Conservative Voices in America May Soon Be Silenced!

What would the world be like for American conservatives if Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Mark Levin and Dave Ramsey were suddenly no longer on the airwaves? Sadly, we just might be about the find out following the First Quarter 2017 report announced Thursday by iHeartMedia, formerly known as Clear Channel Communications. After warning investors it would include the dreaded “going concern language”—a sign that company questions whether or not it will be able continue in the immediate future—the troubled media giant offered a very bleak outlook, indeed.

“Our consolidated revenues, operating income and OIBDAN declined in the first quarter,” iHeartMedia President, COO, and CFO Rich Bressler said. “Adjusting for sales and foreign exchange, however, our revenues increased. At the iHeartMedia segment, this quarter marked the 16th consecutive quarter of year-over-year increases in revenue. We remain focused on balancing financial discipline with investments to grow our businesses while continuing to work on our capital structure.” FULL REPORT http://www.charismanews.com/politics/issues/64728-is-a-major-conservative-voice-in-america-about-to-be-silenced

Harvard Wants to Remove Christian Roots From School Traditions
MAY 5, 2017
Prestigious American university Harvard is considering removing a line from its ceremonial song that references its Christian heritage. A Harvard professor claims the lyric could be racist, but a U.K. academic has described the proposal as “morally disoriented.” Harvard takes its name from John Harvard, who emigrated with the Puritans to the United States in the 1600s and left his academic books to the institution after his death.
‘Truth, Light, Love‘
“Fair Harvard” is sung when students begin at the university and when they graduate.
“Let not moss-covered Error moor thee at its side,
As the world on Truth’s current glides by,
Be the herald of Light, and the bearer of Love,
Till the stock of the Puritans die.”
Harvard’s ‘Presidential Task Force on Inclusion and Belonging’ is now running a competition to create a new ending to the song as they claim it currently “suggests that the commitment to truth, and to being the bearer of its light, is the special province of those of Puritan stock.” And while they say they do not want to “write Puritans out,” they state they can imagine a line without any reference to them.

NFL Star Dez Bryant: God’s Commandments Are Not ‘Old Fashioned, but Well Fashioned’
MAY 5, 2017
Dallas Cowboys pro-bowl wide receiver Dez Bryant took to his social media accounts on Sunday to share his thoughts on what he learned at church that morning. Bryant, who regularly uses his social media accounts to voice his opinions or share thoughts of encouragement, posted a message to Twitter around noon on Sunday in which he shared a verse from the Old Testament and reflected on the lesson he discovered in worship that morning.
“I learned more about myself today in church,” the former Oklahoma State Cowboy wrote. “Regardless of your upbringing, good or bad, keep the honor of authority in the forefront [sic] of your life because their is blessing when you choose to honor in spite of the circumstances.” Bryant then cited Deuteronomy 5:16: “Give honor to your father and your mother, as you have been ordered by the Lord your God; so that your life may be long and all may be well for you in the land which the Lord your God is giving you.”

Alarming rise in children hospitalized with suicidal thoughts or actions
MAY 5, 2017
The percentage of younger children and teens hospitalized for suicidal thoughts or actions in the United States doubled over nearly a decade, according to new research that will be presented Sunday at the 2017 Pediatric Academic Societies Meeting. A steady increase in admissions due to suicidality and serious self-harm occurred at 32 children’s hospitals across the nation from 2008 through 2015, the researchers found.
The children studied were between the ages of 5 and 17, and although all age groups showed increases, the largest uptick was seen among teen girls. “We noticed over the last two, three years that an increasing number of our hospital beds are not being used for kids with pneumonia or diabetes; they were being used for kids awaiting placement because they were suicidal,” said Dr. Gregory Plemmons, presenter of the study and an associate professor of pediatrics at Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt.

National Day of Prayer observance on Capitol Hill.”Our nation is in trouble and we had some wonderful things [happen] today,” Lotz said early in her remarks, adding that she was in attendance at the White House when the president signed the executive order. “I praise God for the liberty that we have. In fact, I was telling Sammy Rodriguez before this that it’s almost mind blowing that America has to have an executive order to guarantee religious liberty in America, which shows how far we have fallen from our foundation of faith in the living God.”

UPDATE: Satanic Temple to Erect First Ever Satanic Monument on Public Property
MAY 5, 2017
City leaders in Belle Plaine, Minnesota have granted The Satanic Temple permission to erect a satanic monument next to a Christian memorial. The Veterans Memorial Park is used to honor fallen veterans of war. The Satanic Temple in Salem, Massachusetts is planning to erect a memorial in the park: a black cube, inscribed with inverted pentagrams and has an empty soldier’s helmet on top of it. City officials granted Satanists permission to erect the monument after controversy
surrounding a Christian memorial at the park. A two-foot steel war memorial called “Joe,” which features a soldier kneeling before a cross in its tribute to soldiers, was on display as a memorial to the brave men and women who fought and died for their country. According to The Gospel Herald, the atheist organization Freedom From Religion Foundation, demanded Belle Plaine remove the Christian statute in January.

Senior Russian Senator Blasts US Plans to Enforce N. Korea Sanctions on Foreign Territory, Calls it a “Declaration of War”
MAY 5, 2017
A senior Russian senator says the American bill allowing the US Navy to enforce international sanctions on North Korea through the control of Russian ports is a violation of international law, and is equal to a declaration of war. “The realization of this [US] bill includes a proposed force scenario in which the US Navy would conduct compulsory inspections of all ships. Such a scenario is simply unthinkable because it means a declaration of war,” RIA Novosti quoted
upper house Committee for International Relations head Konstantin Kosachev as saying. The comment came shortly after the US Congress approved the bill with additional sanctions against North Korea, allowing for the possible establishment of US control over seaports and sea routes in the Far East, including the Russian ports of Vanino, Nakhodka and Vladivostok. The bill also expands the powers of the president of the United States to impose sanctions against individuals who violate certain UN Security Council resolutions.

New Tick-Borne Virus Can Be Transmitted in Just Minutes
MAY 5, 2017
A new health concern is brewing for tick bites. It’s known as the Powassan Virus, and experts say it can be transmitted to humans in just minutes. Dr. Mike Cirigiliano appeared on Good Day Philadelphia Friday morning to discuss the virus and express his own concerns. The virus is spread by ticks, similar to Lyme Disease, but can be spread much faster. Dr. Mike explained that if a tick has been on you for 24-hours,
it is usually cause for concern. However, with Powassan Virus, it can be spread within 15 minutes. Experts are concerned with the virus due to two mild winters leading to more acorns, Dr. Mike explained. The acorns sustain mice, and the mice population is able to increase. This causes problems as mice can carry about 12 to 25 ticks, and move their way on to deer, and then humans.

‘Real-Life’ Possession Story Behind William Peter Blatty’s ‘The Exorcist’
MAY 5, 2017
The Internet is abuzz over the tragic news that William Peter Blatty, author of the terrifying book and feature film, “The Excorcist,” died on Thursday at the age of 89. Blatty, who suffered from multiple myeloma, is widely known for creating the hair-raising supernatural story that has both entertained and horrified audiences for more than four decades. But one of the details that isn’t always given a great deal of attention is the fact that “The Exorcist” was actually based on a supposed real-life story that Blatty first read about during his college years, The Associated Press reported on Friday. In the film, a young girl named Regan is inhabited by a demonic spirit, but the real-life story reportedly surrounds a 13-year-old boy referred to by aliases “Robbie Mannheim” and “Roland Doe” — an individual whose identity still remains concealed decades after his own apparent demonic possession unfolded.It’s quite an odd story that apparently began in a Washington, D.C., suburb in 1948 when Robbie started noticing marks on his body and other bizarre happenings inside his home. It’s unclear why or how it all started –

10 Reasons Millennials Are Backing Away From God
MAY 5, 2017
(Reported By Beth Harrison) Millennials and their habits, beliefs, views and work ethic are a frequent topic of conversation in today’s culture. This generation has stymied business leaders, professors, pastors, politicians and other cultural influencers. Now, religion and culture expert, national radio host and author Dr. Alex McFarland (alexmcfarland.com) is offering insight to why Millennials are backing away from God and Christianity.
As the co-author of the new book Abandoned Faith: Why Millennials Are Walking Away and How You Can Lead Them Home,” written with apologist and evangelist Jason Jimenez, McFarland explores why Millennials are leaving the church and how those who love them can bring them back. “College-aged Millennials today are far more likely than the general population to be religiously unaffiliated,” McFarland writes in a new op-ed for foxnews.com. “This in true when they are compared to previous generations as well.

Kendrick Lamar Says Churches Need to Preach God’s Judgment, Not Just Hope
MAY 5, 2017
Kendrick Lamar wants to showcase a side of God that he hasn’t seen in church, one that focuses less on the blessings of God and more on God’s wrath. Lamar, the 29-year-old rapper whose fourth studio album Damn is sitting atop Billboard charts, believes the churches that only focus on the idea of hope are one-sided. “I went to a local church some time ago, and it appalled me that the same program was in practice. A program that I seen as a kid the few times I was in service,”
Lamar wrote in an email to Hip Hop website DJ Booth. “Praise, dance. Worship. (Which is beautiful.) Pastor spewing the idea of someone’s season is approaching. The idea of hope.”However, Lamar said he felt a sense of emptiness when he heard these types of sermons as a child. Now that the Grammy award-winning rapper based out of Compton, California, has been studying his faith for himself, he revealed why he was leaving churches feeling “spiritually unsatisfied as a child.”

LGBT groups condemn Trump’s religious liberty executive order
MAY 5, 2017
President Donald Trump campaigned on being a “real friend” to the gay community, but several LGBT rights organizations said the religious liberty executive order he signed Thursday could open the doors for more discrimination against gay Americans. The order, signed during a ceremony in the White House Rose Garden, directs the Internal Revenue Service to exercise “maximum enforcement discretion” over the so-called Johnson amendment, which prevents
churches and other tax-exempt religious organizations from endorsing or opposing political candidates. The order also provides “regulatory relief” for organizations that object on religious grounds to a provision in Obamacare that mandates employers provide certain health services, including coverage for contraception. A message left with the White House asking what assurances the administration could offer LGBT Americans anxious over the order was not immediately returned Thursday.

Netflix Edits ‘Bill Nye’ Episode to Remove Segment Saying Chromosomes Determine Gender
MAY 5, 2017
When uploaded to Netflix, an episode of the educational children’s show “Bill Nye the Science Guy” cut out a segment saying that chromosomes determine one’s gender. In the original episode, titled “Probability,” a young woman told viewers, “I’m a girl. Could have just as easily been a boy, though, because the probability of becoming a girl is always 1 in 2.”
“See, inside each of our cells are these things called chromosomes, and they control whether we become a boy or a girl, ” the young woman continued. “See, there are only two possibilities: XX, a girl, or XY, a boy.” But in the version of the episode uploaded to Netflix, the segment has been cut entirely. While noncontroversial at the time, the 1996 segment appears to contradict Netflix’s new series “Bill Nye Saves the World.”

Pentagon Watching Iran-North Korea Military Alliance
MAY 5, 2017
When Iran attempted to launch a cruise missile from a “midget” submarine earlier this week, Pentagon officials saw more evidence of North Korean influence in the Islamic Republic – with intelligence reports saying the submarine was based on a Pyongyang design, the same type that sank a South Korean warship in 2010. According to U.S. defense officials, Iran was attempting to launch a Jask-2 cruise missile underwater for the first time, but the launch failed. Nonproliferation
experts have long suspected North Korea and Iran are sharing expertise when it comes to their rogue missile programs. “The very first missiles we saw in Iran were simply copies of North Korean missiles,” said Jeffrey Lewis, a missile proliferation expert at the Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey. “Over the years, we’ve seen photographs of North Korean and Iranian officials in each other’s countries, and we’ve seen all kinds of common hardware.”

Unsafe levels of Toxic Arsenic found in 73% of Baby Rice Snacks
MAY 5, 2017
Three-quarters of baby rice products contain dangerous levels of arsenic, a study shows. Researchers found illegally high amounts – which breach EU limits – in 73 per cent of products in supermarkets. Consuming too much arsenic can lead to developmental problems, heart disease, diabetes and nervous system damage, as well as raising the risk of certain types of cancer. The study calls into question the effectiveness of the EU rules brought in only last year to reduce the chemical
present in products such as rice cakes and drinks. Professor Andy Meharg, who led the study at Queen’s University Belfast, said: ‘It shows babies are exposed to illegal levels of arsenic despite the EU regulation to specifically address this health challenge. ‘Babies are particularly vulnerable to the damaging effects of arsenic that can prevent the healthy development of a baby’s growth, IQ and immune system to name but a few.’

Brad Pitt Mocks His Parents Speaking in Tongues; Talks Frustration With Christianity’s ‘Don’ts’
MAY 5, 2017
Actor Brad Pitt, who has identified as an atheist despite his Baptist upbringing, opened up in a recent interview about how his parents moved toward the charismatic tradition, and about some of his frustrations with Christianity. “We grew up First Baptist, which is the cleaner, stricter, by-the-book Christianity. Then, when I was in high school, my folks jumped to a more charismatic movement, which got into speaking in tongues and raising your hands and some goofy-a** [expletive],” Pitt told GQ magazine in an interview released on Wednesday.
When asked whether he witnessed the speaking of tongues himself, the actor replied: “Yeah, come on. I’m not even an actor yet, but I know … I mean the people, I know they believe it. I know they’re releasing something. God, we’re complicated. We’re complicated creatures.” Pitt has left Christianity and is now an atheist, The Telegraph reported in 2015 in a separate interview with Pitt, where the actor said that since an early age, he was instilled “with all the Christian guilt about what you can and cannot, should and shouldn’t do.”

Famine of ‘Biblical Proportions’ Descending Upon Yemen; Child Dying Every 10 Minutes
MAY 5, 2017
Yemen’s civil war has brought the country on the brink of a famine of “biblical proportions,” humanitarian aid workers said, with a child dying every 10 minutes, according to some. Jan Egeland, who heads the Norwegian Refugee Council and also advises the United Nations on Syrian humanitarian operations, told Reuters on Thursday that Yemen’s civil war might be less known than Syria’s, but it has led to a major disaster as well.
“All our efforts through the World Food Programme reached 3.1 million of seven million people who are on the brink of famine. So it means basically that four million people got nothing in April and these people are staring into the naked eye of starvation,” Egeland said. “We will have a famine of biblical proportions, if it continues like now with only a portion of those in greatest need getting humanitarian relief,” he added.

Deadly ‘Superbug’ Fungus emerging in U.S. hospitals
MAY 5, 2017
A deadly “superbug” fungus that is hard to spot and harder to kill is slowly infiltrating U.S. hospitals, health experts say. Candida auris enters the bloodstream, spreads throughout the body and causes a variety of infections, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention warns. More than 60 cases have been identified in the U.S., all but a few of them in New York and New Jersey. The CDC has alerted hospitals and other health care facilities across the nation to watch out for the relatively new fungus.
The fungus can be passed between people or through the environment from such things as hospital equipment, says Dr. Tom Chiller, chief of the CDC’s Mycotic (fungal) Diseases Branch. Some strands of the fungus found in other countries have been resistant to the three classes of anti-fungal medicine, he said. “We are dealing with an organism we don’t have drugs to treat. That is what worries us,” Chiller told USA TODAY. “What we have seen (in the U.S. so far) has been treatable. We are trying to aggressively contain it, stop it and kill it.”

FORD Laying Off 130 Workers in Ohio…
MAY 5, 2017
Ford Motor Co. will temporarily lay off 130 workers at a factory near Cleveland, a move aimed at lessening supply of medium-duty work trucks hit by softening demand. The layoffs, announced Thursday and covering a shift at a plant at the Ohio Assembly Plant in Avon Lake, take effect next week and are expected to last until a newer version of the company’s F-650 and F-750 commercial trucks launches in September. F-Series medium-trucks are sold for various business uses
and are among the company’s more profitable business lines. The strength of the commercial-truck sector has been considered a sign that economic activity is robust in the U.S. The affected trucks serve a variety of needs, from dump trucks to cargo haulers to tow trucks. Ohio is home to several automotive assembly plants and factories that make parts for cars and trucks. The state is one of several being highlighted amid President Donald Trump’s push for more American jobs in the car industry.

FAMILIAR SPIRIT – Hunters film what appears to be grainy ‘ghost girl’ walking through woods
MAY 5, 2017
A Mystery “ghost girl” appeared to have been filmed walking in the woods. The spooky snap sparked wild theories among locals that it was the spirit of a girl. However, the grainy picture captured by a huntsman’s camera is now believed to be the daughter of a local businessman. The grainy snap was captured by a camera set up in the woods by a huntsman who wanted to find out if the area was popular route for locals. But the landowner was stunned to discover the grainy picture showing what appeared to be a little girl playing in the woods.
Initially nobody recognised the youngster, or knew that their daughter played around the area in Cambridge, New York state. Cambridge-Greenwich Police Chief George Bell said: “I’ve lived here all my life, and I’ve never heard of a ghost running around the woods. “The idea originally was just to identify who the child was.” It sparked wild conspiracy theories among locals on social media. One said; “I think it’s a ghost. Why do you say that? Because look at it. It’s definitely a spirit.”

Spending Bill Includes Billions in for Israel
MAY 5, 2017
Congress passed a funding bill Thursday that will give Israel billions of dollars and advance more pro-Israel efforts in the U.S. The bill provides $3.1 billion plus an additional $75 million in overall security assistance to Israel. It includes funding for programs like Israel’s missile defense system and the development of Israeli technology, energy, and water. The new bill also slashes aid to the Palestinian Authority for the support it provides to the families of terrorists.
Pro-Israel activists are celebrating the bill and see it as a direct attack against terrorism. “AIPAC applauds Congress for including key provisions to help Israel address critical security challenges in the Omnibus Appropriations bill for Fiscal Year 2017,” said Mark Kleinman, AIPAC’s Southeastern States Director. Many hope these provisions are the first of many actions the new administration will take in support of Israel. Congress will consider several pieces of legislation to counter Iran’s aggression and combat the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement.

Gluten-free diet ‘could raise heart attack risk’
MAY 5, 2017
Dieters who go gluten-free could be at greater risk of having a heart attack, experts have warned. Researchers found people who avoid wheat could be more likely to develop heart disease because they are missing out on some of the key health benefits of whole grains. In recent years the gluten-free diet has become a popular health trend with advocates including celebrities like Gwyneth Paltrow. Previously the wheat-free way of life was mainly followed by people who suffer
from coeliac disease – an intolerance to gluten. Scientists in the US have now found people who live wheat-free could be eating less whole grains, which help to reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease. The researchers, whose study was published in the British Medical Journal, said: “The avoidance of gluten may result in reduced consumption of beneficial whole grains, which may affect cardiovascular risk.

Feds May Begin Calorie Regulations Soon!
MAY 5, 2017
Jenny Craig can’t arrest you if you miscount your calories, but the federal government could if a new calorie-counting rule takes effect. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s “Nutrition Labeling of Standard Menu Items in Restaurants and Similar Retail Food Establishments” (79 FR 71155) rule was originally scheduled to take effect on May 5. The FDA has now delayed the rule for a year.
The 105-page rule would implement Obama-era amendments to the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FD&C Act), which sets national standards for the marketing and labeling of food products. The rule would require, among other mandates, that all restaurants and other retail food outlets, such as movie theaters, operating as one brand with at least 20 stores display a calorie count in addition to other nutritional information for all standard menu items on the establishment’s “menus and menu boards.”

Faith leaders praise Trump’s action to protect religious liberty
MAY 5, 2017
Faith leaders are praising what they hope is a first step by the Trump administration to protect religious liberties that were put in a bull’s-eye by the Obama administration. President Trump signed an executive order Thursday instructing that churches be given the widest freedom possible from the Johnson amendment of 1954 that restricts their speech. It also instructs that Christians no longer be targeted by the government with campaigns that violate their faith.
James Dobson, the pioneering radio voice of Christian and family values for tens of millions through Focus on the Family and now Family Talk, was himself targeted under Obama’s mandate that even Christian organizations provide abortion-causing drugs to employees who request them. His response then? “Come and get me if you must,” he said, affirming he would not comply with the Obama mandate.

Drinking Alcohol Makes Straight Men More Sexually Fluid, Boost Physical Attraction To Same Sex
MAY 5, 2017
Many of us are all too familiar with the “beer goggles” effect: friends and strangers alike become more attractive after a drink or two. Undoubtedly, drinking alcohol lowers our inhibitions and makes us more open to experimentation with the same sex. In a new study, published in The Journal of Social Psychology, straight men were found to be more physically attracted to other men after a few drinks. “Most notably, alcohol intake was related to increased sexual willingness of men
with a same-sex partner, suggesting a potential shift in normative casual sexual behavior among heterosexual men,” wrote the authors in the study. Researchers recruited a total of 83 straight men and women who were bar hopping in the Midwest at night. The participants were asked to complete a survey about how many drinks they’d had that night. In addition, they had to watch a 40-second video of either a physically attractive man or woman drinking at a bar and chatting with the bartender.

Trump’s First Foreign Trip Taking Him to Israel at 50th Anniversary of Six-Day War
MAY 4, 2017
President Trump confirmed Thursday morning at a National Day of Prayer event in the Rose Garden of the White House that he will be visiting Saudi Arabia, Rome, and Israel this month at a historic time for the Jewish people. Trump’s first overseas trip as president indicates special support for America’s top Mideast ally, Israel, since it coincides with the 50th
anniversary of the Six-Day War.Israel regained control of Jerusalem during that war, and the timing leads some to speculate that President Trump could use the occasion to announce he’s moving the U.S. Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. Such a move would recognize Israel’s ancient claim to the Holy City. Rep. Ron DeSantis tells CBN News White House Correspondent Jennifer Wishon he believes Trump will make that move.

Retail Apocalypse Could Be Coming to American Grocery Stores Next!
MAY 4, 2017
The American grocery store has so far been mostly immune to the ravages of online shopping and the all around apocalyptic outlook facing the nation’s retailers. But a war is coming to the staid supermarket, and that could mean more consolidation, bankruptcies, and falling prices.An invasion is getting under way. Lidl, a German retailer known for low prices and efficient operations, is expected to start an aggressive U.S. expansion in the coming weeks that could open as
many as 100 new stores across the East Coast by the summer of 2018. The company, which runs about 10,000 stores in Europe, has also set its sights on Texas, one of the most competitive grocery markets in the U.S. Analysts expect Lidl to expand to nearly $9 billion in sales by 2023.The last thing U.S. grocers need is more cutthroat competition. As the ranks of U.S. grocery stores have swelled, food has become a way for struggling brick-and-mortar retailers such as dollar stores and pharmacies to compete for customers.

John Piper Revels 5 Lessons for Children About Horrors of Hell and God’s Final Judgment
MAY 4, 2017
Evangelical theologian John Piper has told parents that they need to teach their children about the horrors of hell, as a way to show God’s glory and the coming final judgment. Piper, who is the former pastor of Bethlehem Baptist Church in St. Paul, Minnesota, took a question Wednesday on his Desiring God website from a parent concerned about what he should tell his child, who has “extreme anxiety” about death, about the topic of hell.
The theologian told the parent, Michael, that it is better that his son is afraid of hell, than not be afraid at all. “God does not intend for His children to experience hell as an end, but to experience the warning of hell as a means of clarifying and establishing these five great realities. This is true for a 6-year-old and it’s true for a 60-year-old. Look at this moment, Michael, in the child’s life as a golden opportunity for teaching him many wonderful things,” Piper said. He then listed five “great realities” about hell, firstly pointing out that the fear of hell “is a golden opportunity for treating God as big and glorious and utterly real.”

US Faces ‘Nationwide Drinking Water Crisis
MAY 4, 2017
Up to 77 million Americans were serviced in 2015 by unsafe drinking water systems, with 18 million people exposed to excessive levels of lead and copper, a new study found, adding that penalties for violations are “virtually nonexistent.” “The actual number of violations and systems breaking the law is likely substantially higher because of probable widespread underreporting,” the authors of the study by the environmental advocacy group Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) say.
According to the research, entitled “Threats on Tap: Widespread Violations Highlight Need for Investment in Water Infrastructure and Protections,” violations were reported in all 50 states in 2015, including the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and other territories covered by the Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA). The top five states with SDWA violations by population proved to be Texas, Florida, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Georgia.

It could take just one cough, one kiss, one touch or even one bite to change not only your life, but the lives of everyone around you — and for months or even years. In most cases, the closer those people are to you, the greater the risk. But it isn’t always that simple. The risk at hand: an infectious outbreak. Public health experts believe we are at greater risk than ever of experiencing large-scale outbreaks and global pandemics like those we’ve seen before: SARS, swine flu, Ebola and Zika. More than 28,000 people were infected during the 2014-16 Ebola epidemic,
with over 11,000 deaths. And as of March 10, 84 countries have reported Zika transmission. That disease was discovered in the 1940s, but had its first outbreak in 2007 in Micronesia, and more recently began spreading toward the end of 2015. Every time, the infection’s arrival is unexpected and its scale unprecedented, leaving the world vulnerable. Experts are unanimous in the belief that the next outbreak contender will most likely be a surprise — and we need to be ready.

Science Claims Time Travel is Possible
MAY 4, 2017
The past is the final frontier. Traveling back in time isn’t necessarily science fiction, according to a new paper published in Classical and Quantum Gravity. The paper’s title, “Traversable acausal retrograde domains in spacetime,” creates the acronym TARDIS – the name of the fictional time machine in “Doctor Who.” “People think of time travel as something as fiction,” Ben Tippett, the lead author of the study, told The University of British Columbia. “But, mathematically, it is possible.”
Specifically, the paper describes a spacetime “bubble” that would travel faster than the speed of light – thereby allowing it to move backwards. The idea that an object can travel through time if it reaches the speed of light is based on Albert Einstein’s theory of special relativity. But in order to traverse the past, we need something that doesn’t exist yet. And Tippet isn’t sure if it’s something that ever will.

Thousands Are Speaking the Word of God over the US Capitol
MAY 4, 2017
The 28th Annual US Capitol Bible Reading Marathon is well underway, with around 1600 people flocking to DC this week for an opportunity to read a passage from the Bible at the West Front of the Capitol building. For 28 years, the group has secured permits to set up for 90 hours straight reading through the entire Bible from start to finish. The event always kicks off on the Sunday leading up to the National Day of Prayer, which falls on the first Thursday of May each year. They
began with Genesis 1:1 at 6 pm Sunday night, and will finish reading Revelation 22 aloud together around noon on Thursday, May 4. The event organizers celebrate the fact that because of religious freedom in America, this 90 hour Bible reading marathon at the US Capitol is permitted year after year. Any race, religion, or ethnicity is invited to read passages from the Bible. And come rain, wind, or shine, they have volunteers consecutively reading through the entire Bible.

PROPHECY WATCH: Trump vows to make peace in Middle East a top priority
MAY 4, 2017
President Trump promised Wednesday to make peace in the Middle East a top priority, vowing to do “whatever is necessary” to reach a historic deal between Israel and the Palestinians. In a joint press conference with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas at the White House, Trump said he was going to “start a process which will hopefully lead to peace.” “I will do whatever is necessary,” Trump said. “I will be a mediator, an arbitrator or a facilitator … and we will get this done.”
Trump, however, didn’t mention any specific parameters of such a deal, other than saying that it would involve two states. And when Abbas, during his own remarks, appeared to criticize Israel, the President did not react. “It’s about time for Israel to end its occupation of our people and of our land,” Abbas said. “We are the only remaining people in the world who still live under occupation,” he added, eliciting no verbal or facial response from Trump. Abbas also immediately mentioned several demands as part of a prospective agreement.

MAY 4, 2017

Corporate Insiders Sell Stocks At The Fastest Rate Since The Last Financial Crisis
MAY 4, 2017
(Reported By Michael Snyder) Puerto Rico has collapsed financially and has “filed for the equivalent of bankruptcy protection”. When this was announced on Wednesday, it quickly made front page news all over the planet. For decades, Puerto Rico has been considered to be the territory most likely to become “the 51st U.S. state”, and there have even been rumblings that we could soon see a renewed push for statehood.

But that is on the back burner for now, because at the moment Puerto Rico is dealing with a nightmarish financial crisis that is the result of an accelerating economic collapse. Unfortunately, many Americans still don’t believe that what has happened to Puerto Rico could happen to us, even though signs of major economic trouble are emerging all around us. Almost two years ago I issued a major warning about the debt crisis in Puerto Rico, and now the day of reckoning for “America’s Greece” has finally arrived…

Museum of the Bible prepares for DC opening
MAY 3, 2017
The vast grove of museums stretching from the U.S. Capitol across the fringes of the National Mall is about to get a new addition, albeit a decidedly less secular one: The Museum of the Bible. Just three blocks south of the Capitol, the privately funded museum is set to open this November. Though it may seem out of place next to the well-known museums on American history, air and space and more, those behind the project describe it as a future attraction that will draw in a
range of visitors through a blend of historical and religious artifacts and interactive exhibits. “The goal is to show and to educate people about the many ways that the Bible has impacted America, not just our history but in terms of civil rights and social justice to fashion,” Steve Bickley, vice president of marketing for the museum, told Fox News during an early tour of the museum-in-the-making. From presidential inaugural ceremonies to bedside tables in hotels across the country, the Bible has indeed been a fixture in American life.

Taxpayers ‘must fund compression underwear for transgender inmates’
MAY 3, 2017
A California judge has ordered that state prison officials must provide transgender inmates with compression underwear and jewelry if the inmate cannot afford to purchase them. As the Associated Press reported Friday, U.S. District Judge Jon Tigar in San Francisco issued the order in a federal lawsuit, saying prison officials must now provide free undergarments that flatten the chest (binders or compression tops)
to female-to-male transgender inmates in women’s prisons. This was the same lawsuit that had earlier “led California to become the first state to provide taxpayer-funded sex reassignment surgery to an inmate.” Shiloh Quine, 57, the individual inmate in question, underwent the sex reassignment surgery in January and was then moved from a men’s prison to a women’s facility and is serving a life sentence for robbery, kidnapping, and the 1980 murder of Shahid Ali Baig, a young father of three.

Global Christians Unite for Luke 6:27 Mandate
MAY 3, 2017
How should Christians love their enemies and respond to the growing wave of genocide and persecution around the world? Over 600 Christian leaders from 130 countries are gathering behind closed doors for the first-time next week to plan a strategic, global response as part of the World Summit in Defense of Persecuted Christians. The invitation-only event in Washington is sponsored by the Billy Graham Evangelistic Organization and is scheduled for May 10-13 but the delegates are already arriving.
Besides planning and organizing an emergency response to the persecution and genocide crisis, the conference has four stated purposes: 1. Help change public policy that promotes discrimination against Christians, harassment, and persecution, 2. Find ways to increase diplomatic pressure on the violating states, 3. Inform and mobilize Christians to address President Trump and their elected officials to take stronger American action against the increasing persecution, 4. Comfort and help the victims respond in a biblical manner.

Franklin Graham Claims Christians in America Are ‘Persecuted’ by LGBT Agenda
MAY 3, 2017
Evangelist Franklin Graham said Tuesday that Christians in America who oppose the LGBT agenda are being “persecuted” and singled out “over and over and over again” for acting in accordance with their biblical convictions on sexuality. Graham, the president of both the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association and the humanitarian organization Samaritan’s Purse, spoke as a guest on the “Washington Watch” radio program hosted by prominent social conservative activist and Family Research Council President Tony Perkins to discuss BGEA’s upcoming World Summit in Defense of Persecuted Christians being held in Washington, D.C. next week.
The summit, which runs from May 10–13, has been touted by Graham as the “first event of its kind” that will bring together over 600 people from over 130 countries across the globe, many of whom will tell of their own first-hand accounts of being persecuted for their faith in Christ. The conference comes as tens of thousands of Christians are killed, imprisoned or persecuted worldwide because of their faith every year.

Purdue Professor Says Images of Aborted Babies Are ‘Child Pornography’
MAY 3, 2017
A professor at Purdue University argued that images of aborted babies constitute “child pornography” in a recent debate over abortion rights. Professor David Sanders, an associate professor of Biology at Purdue University, accused pro-lifers who use images of aborted fetuses of participating in “child pornography” activities. In what was likely an ill-conceived
attempt to call pro-lifers hypocrites, Sanders argued that the public display of dead fetuses is akin to child pornography. His reason? No one obtained the permission of the fetus “He thinks fetuses are children, and he belongs to an organization that likes to show images of fetuses,” Sanders remarked. “What would you call the public display of a butt naked body of a child?” Sanders asked. “I would call it child pornography. Do they have their permission? Do they have the permission of the fetus? Obviously not.”

NYC Mandates Single-Stall Restrooms in All City Schools
MAY 3, 2017
Every New York City public school must install at least one single-stall restroom under a new policy announced by Chancellor Carmen Farina. Farina said Tuesday that the restrooms will be available in all city schools by January 2018. School officials say the single-stall bathrooms will support the privacy needs of transgender students and students with medical conditions and disabilities.
Farina says officials want to provide every student with “a safe, supportive and inclusive learning environment.” Benjamin Davis of the Gender and Family Project at the Ackerman Institute for the Family praised the initiative. He said the single-stall option will let students meet their most basic needs “without threat of harassment, violence or intimidation.”

Pastor Says Muslims in Middle East Have ‘Huge Thirst’ for Gospel
MAY 3, 2017
A pastor in the Middle East who daily risks his life to share the truth of Jesus Christ said he’s witnessed a “huge thirst” for the gospel among Muslims, who continually ask him for Bibles. “Christ calls us to go out into the world to proclaim the Gospel,” Pastor Rashad told persecution watchdog Open Doors USA. “Yes, that may be outside of people’s comfort zones, but I believe that is what God asks of us today.”
Pastor Rashad is no stranger to stepping outside of his comfort zone. As a young man in Jordan, he felt called by God to minister to Muslims. Thus, for over ten years, Pastor Rashad has traveled up and down his country to visit villages and remote communities, sharing the love of Christ everywhere he goes. He told Open Doors that because less than three percent of Jordan’s population is Christian, many people have never heard the gospel.

Denmark Bans Christian ‘Hate Preacher’ Terry Jones
MAY 3, 2017
Denmark on Tuesday banned five Islamic clerics and an American evangelical Christian pastor from entering the country, calling them “hate preachers” who posed threats to public order. The move came amidst a public backlash in Denmark against Islam in the wake of Islamist violence a decade ago over Danish newspaper cartoons satirizing the Prophet Mohammad, a series of deadly militant attacks in Europe including one in Denmark and a large influx of mainly Muslim migrants in 2015.
The blacklist, the first of its kind in Denmark, arose from legislation passed last year allowing bans on foreign religious figures the government deems to be a danger to public security. “The government will not accept that hate preachers come to Denmark to preach hatred against Danish society and indoctrinate others to commit violence against women and children, spread ideas about an (Islamic) caliphate and in general undermine our fundamental values,” Immigration Minister Inger Stojberg said.

MYSTERY – North Korean ghost ships filled with the Dead wash ashore in Japan
MAY 3, 2017
Emerging out of the mist, the hulking mass of a decaying vessel, its tattered North Korean flag fluttering in the breeze, silently floats toward the shore. The sight became an eerily common one in Japan, where some dozens of the so-called ghost ships have reportedly turned up in recent years. Crewed only by dead men unable to tell of what happened on their final voyage, mystery has surrounded the phenomenon. All that was known was that the boats were almost certainly from
North Korea. Writing in Korean – including signs indicating the boat belonged to the “Korean People’s Army” – and the remains of North Korean flags provided the only concrete evidence as to their origins. But why they began washing ashore in towns on Japan’s west coast, and what exactly was killing their crews remained a mystery. The phenomenon left authorities scratching their heads and prompted an investigation in the country.

Facebook Hiring 3,000 people to monitor live videos for violence
MAY 3, 2017
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg said the social media giant will hire 3,000 employees to monitor what people stream through its Live feature, through which some users have broadcast violent incidents. “Over the last few weeks, we’ve seen people hurting themselves and others on Facebook — either live or in video posted later. It’s heartbreaking, and I’ve been reflecting on how we can do better for our community,”
Zuckerberg wrote in a Facebook post. “If we’re going to build a safe community, we need to respond quickly.” Zuckerberg said Facebook will add 3,000 people to its global community operations team in addition to the current 4,500 employed to “to review the millions of reports we get every week, and improve the process for doing it quickly.” The team will review both live videos and uploaded content.

Violent Sharia Law Spreading as World Ignores Radical Islamic Attacks on Believers
MAY 3, 2017
One Monday in early April, Shaher Saeed was driving south of the city of Arish in Egypt’s North Sinai when he came upon a group of Islamic State militants who had stopped a truck carrying cigarettes. “I saw them forcing the driver from the vehicle and stripping the upper part of his clothing before tying him to the door of one of their cars,” said Saeed, who lives in the area. “They hit him on the back more than 10 times, then burned all the cartons of cigarettes … They let him go after warning him not to trade cigarettes again.”
Interviews with residents of North Sinai and reviews of Islamic State videos suggest the group’s local affiliate, known as Sinai Province, is seeking to impose its hardline interpretation of Islam on the local populace for the first time. According to Sinai Province videos reviewed by Reuters, the group has created a morality police force, known as a Hisba, to enforce strict rules against such behavior as smoking, men shaving their beards or women exposing their faces.

LYING SIGNS AND WONDERS: Cloud ‘resembling mother of Jesus’ appears over Venezuelans taking part in Divine Mercy pilgrimage
MAY 3, 2017
Pilgrims in Venezuela were shocked when they spotted a rare cloud in the sky they say looked like the Virgin Mary. The cloud phenomenon was seen by people participating in the traditional pilgrimage of Divina Misericordia (Divine Mercy) that was held on Sunday in the city of Maracaibo, in the north-western Venezuelan state of Zulia. Several people took photos posted them online saying the cloud clearly resembled the Virgin Mary, although other people believed looked like was God or Jesus Christ.

In one video clip, it appears as though a ‘hand’ reaches out from the cloud, making the vapour mass look even more human-like. Video of the moment when pilgrims spotted the cloud shows several people, mostly wearing white T-shirts, looking at the sky. The person recording the scene can be heard in the background saying: ‘Look at this miracle, the Virgin is here, pray for the Virgin, the Virgin protects Venezuela.’ People took to social media to discuss the video, with some agreeing that it looked like the Virgin Mary, while others said it was simply a cloud.

Man spends $25,000 on surgery to become ‘real-life elf’…
MAY 3, 2017
A fantasy fanatic has spent more than £25,000 on plastic surgery as he wants to become a real-life elf. Luis Padron, 25, from Buenos Ares, Argentina, became obsessed with the world of elves, angels and fantasy beings after being bullied as a child. He became determined to look like his favourite otherworldly characters and started bleaching his hair and skin. He now has a £4,000-a-month ritual applying specialist creams, dyes, treatment and SPF 100 sunscreen. He has almost
spent more than £25,000 on surgery including liposuction on his jaw, a nose job, full body hair removal and operations to change his eye colour. Mr Padron gets unusual looks but says he doesn’t care what people think and said he won’t stop until he has fully ‘transformed’ into an elf. He is planning surgery to make his ears pointed, hair implants for a heart-shaped hairline and a limb lengthening operation to make him 6ft 5in tall.

Church of England Accused of Being ‘Homophobic’ and Too Weak on Biblical Marriage
MAY 3, 2017
The Church of England has been branded as both “institutionally homophobic” by a gay vicar for its biblical stance against same-sex marriage, and too liberal by conservatives who are installing their own bishop to defend traditional marriage. BBC News reported on Monday that the Rev. Andrew Foreshew-Cain, the first CofE vicar to marry his same-sex partner in defiance of Church law, has decided to quit the Church, calling it “institutionally homophobic.”
“The people of the Church of England, the worshiping congregations up and down the country are amazing people who worship and serve their local communities and do tremendous amounts of good in lots of places and for the most part they are welcoming and accepting of the LGBT community,” Foreshew-Cain said.”The problem is with the leadership of the Church which maintains and promotes policies and practices which are discriminatory against LGBT people,” he asserted.

Police are responding to an ‘active shooter’ at North Lake College just northwest of Dallas, authorities said late Wednesday morning on Twitter. The campus, in the Dallas suburb of Irving, is on “intruder lockdown,” the college said on its Facebook page.
A student there, Haseeb Ahmed, said he was in class when he heard three gunshots. It wasn’t immediately clear where the shots were fired. Ahmed and his classmates have barricaded the door to their classroom, he said.

Trump Ready to Sign Religious Freedom Order on National Day of Prayer
MAY 3, 2017
President Trump reportedly will sign a controversial religious liberty executive order Thursday, just before he and conservative leaders celebrate the National Day of Prayer. Citing senior administration officials, Politico reports that Trump has invited conservative speakers to the White House, where he will sign the executive order.
The draft seeks to provide exemptions for religious people and organizations who object to same-sex marriage, premarital sex, abortion, contraception and trans identity. “The language is very, very strong,” one conservative source told Politico. The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) is already revving up for a court battle.The ACLU said if Trump signs an executive order “that attempts to provide a license to discriminate against women or LGBT people, we will see him in court.”

Historic Flooding Closes Hundreds of Roads in 3 States; St. Louis Cut Off From Southeast Missouri
MAY 3, 2017
Flooding has forced Missouri transportation officials to close Interstate 55, along with other major routes Wednesday, effectively cutting off St. Louis from any roads to the south. Storms and heavy rains that began over the weekend led to flooding that has forced the closure of hundreds of roads in Missouri, Arkansas and Illinois. At least 20 people have died from the weekend storms and subsequent flooding. According to Missouri transportation officials, I-55 closed at 12 a.m. Wednesday after rising water levels on the Meramec River inundated numerous roads.
MoDot says the roads will remain closed for the remainder of the week, reports WPSD. A 57-mile stretch of I-44 from central to southern Missouri is also closed, along with a 23-mile stretch in suburban St. Louis, according to the AP. So far, five people have died in Missouri flooding, and several towns have sustained damage. Along the Meramec River, in suburban St. Louis, thousands of sandbags are protecting homes and businesses in Eureka, and authorities fear a breach on a levee in nearby Valley Park, reports the Associated Press.

Porn Star Broke Down and Begged God to Show Her That He’s Real. What Happened Next Totally Changed Her.
MAY 3, 2017
Ex-porn star Crissy Outlaw has been speaking out for the past decade about what drew her into adult filmmaking — and why she eventually abandoned her lucrative career. Outlaw, who is now an outspoken Christian, recently told the Daily Mail that she can’t believe she ever went into porn, adding that she feels “called” to tell people why she left the industry. She expresses this same sentiment on her website as well, explaining how difficult it has been to contend with her dark past .
“Most people can think about their pasts and can easily hide it … never sharing it with anyone for the rest of their lives. The evidence and consequences of my past mistakes will never go away,” Outlaw writes on her website. “I have to deal with this daily, and it isn’t easy. I find happiness in using my past to help others who might be going down a similar path.

Donald Trump Says America needs a good ‘shutdown,’

President Donald Trump tweeted Tuesday that the country needs a “good ‘shutdown,'” as well advocated for changing Senate rules, in a pair of tweets where he complained about the congressional negotiating process. “The reason for the plan negotiated between the Republicans and Democrats is that we need 60 votes in the Senate which are not there! We …

either elect more Republican Senators in 2018 or change the rules now to 51%. Our country needs a good ‘shutdown’ in September to fix mess!” Trump said Tuesday in two consecutive tweets.Democrats quickly hopped on Trump’s call for a shutdown, including Hawaii Sen. Brian Schatz, who tweeted, “The President just called for a government shutdown this fall. No President has ever done anything like this.”

Top Immigration Group Pulls Trump Endorsement Due to ‘Betrayal’ on Promises…
MAY 2, 2017
Speaker Paul Ryan and House Republicans are set to pass legislation this week that forbids President Trump from using federal funds from the May 2017 budget on his proposed border wall. After several broken promises on immigration ALIPAC withdrew its endorsement of President Trump on Tuesday. We realize that today’s press release announcing that ALIPAC is dropping our endorsement of Donald Trump (VIEW RELEASE) is likely to cause much concern and
disappointment among Americans like us who oppose illegal immigration and Amnesty for illegals. We hope that this open letter will help answer some of your Frequently Asked Questions. While we certainly understand that after the heavy barrage of false and misleading claims made against Donald Trump over the last two years by liberal groups, activists, and members of the media, most Trump supporters are rightfully skeptical of any claims that would be damaging to Trump. That is not the case with ALIPAC’s dropped endorsement, press release, or concerns.

Passion of the Christ’ Actor Jim Caviezel Wants to Work With Mel Gibson for Sequel on the Gospels
MAY 2, 2017
Actor Jim Caviezel, best known for playing Jesus in Mel Gibson’s 2004 epic “The Passion of the Christ,” has said that only atheists believe in coincidences, and that some would even deny God’s resurrection of the dead. Caviezel spoke with Polish journalist and film critic Lukasz Adamski in an interview reprinted by the Catholic News Agency on Sunday, and touched upon a number of different topics regarding his Roman Catholic faith and film career.
Caviezel, who has also starred in successful TV shows such as “Person of Interest,” recalled the influence Pope John Paul II had on his life, and remembered that the Polish pontiff “always called young people to break away from contaminated and demoralized civilization.” He noted that the John Paul II encouraged people to try and live like saints, arguing that it is not impossible.

COMING DECEPTION: Will Discovery of Alien Life Shake Religions to their Core?
MAY 2, 2017
About two decades ago, it was quite uncertain whether stars other than our own sun even hosted their own planets. However, according to Nasa, the latest count of confirmed exoplanets stands at around 3,500 – and at least six of them are potential Earths. This count will definitely go up and many researchers believe that the advancement of technology will enable humans to discover some form of life on another planet in the coming years.
Understandably, these discoveries will kindle questions about Earth’s place in the universe. Moreover, contact with intelligent life elsewhere in the universe will present theological and philosophical conundrums that many religions will find deeply challenging. This is especially true for Christianity, which primarily focuses on humankind – and teaches us that God created man in his own image, and all other animals and plants were created for mankind.

Is the UK about to recognize a Palestinian Statehood?
MAY 2, 2017
A new report by the British Parliament’s upper chamber declared President Donald Trump unfit to lead the West’s foreign policy in the Middle East, and called upon the UK to lead the way in recognizing Palestine as an independent, sovereign state. The report was produced by the House of Lord’s International Relations Committee after six months of study, and
reflects the anxiety some European leaders have felt towards President Trump’s campaign pledge to alter Washington’s approach to the NATO alliance, the United Nations, the 2015 Iran nuclear deal, and other hot-button issues. The committee’s findings call for the UK to assume the mantle of global leadership and to “set the tone” for Western policy in the Middle East, warning that the Trump White House has “the potential to destabilize further the region.”

Huffington Post Humanist Urges the Church to Stop Using the Bible as a Moral Guide
MAY 2, 2017
(By Dr. Michael Brown) It’s one thing when a humanist attacks the Bible. That’s expected. It’s another thing when a humanist attacks a Christian denomination for using the Bible as a moral guide. But that’s exactly what humanist author Clay Farris Naff did on the Huffington Post on April 29th. Naff was upset that the highest court of the Methodist Church struck down the consecration of Bishop Karen Oliveto, since her only infraction was being married to another woman. How, he wondered, could the church punish her for love?

He writes, “To anyone free of ancient prejudices, the injustice of condemning Oliveto is plain. How can love be wrong? How can love enfolded in commitment and fidelity be wrong?” The answers are simple and self-evident. Love is not always right, even when it’s “enfolded in commitment and fidelity.” A father may love his adult daughter in a romantic way, but that doesn’t make the relationship right. Twin brothers in their 30s may love each other in a sexual way, but that doesn’t make their sexual activity right. A man who no longer loves his wife may now love his female co-worker, but that doesn’t make his adultery right.

HIV Eliminated From Live Animals in ‘Humanized Model’…
MAY 2, 2017
Due to their innate nature to hide away and remain latent for extended periods of time, HIV infections have proven notoriously difficult to eliminate. Yet now, new data released from a research team led by investigators at the Lewis Katz School of Medicine at Temple University (LKSOM) and the University of Pittsburgh shows that HIV DNA can be excised from the genomes of living animals to eliminate further infection. Additionally, the researchers are the first to perform this feat in three different animal models, including a “humanized” model in which mice were transplanted with human
immune cells and infected with the virus. Findings from the new study were published recently in Molecular Therapy in an article entitled “In Vivo Excision of HIV-1 Provirus by saCas9 and Multiplex Single-Guide RNAs in Animal Models.” This is the first study to demonstrate that HIV-1 replication can be completely shut down and the virus eliminated from infected cells in animals with a powerful gene-editing technology known as CRISPR/Cas9. The new work builds on a previous proof-of-concept study that the team published in 2016,

U.S. Appeals Court Rules Same-Sex Couple Can Seek Damages From Kentucky Clerk
MAY 2, 2017
A federal appeals court on Tuesday revived a damages lawsuit against Kim Davis, the Kentucky county clerk who in 2015 refused to grant marriage licenses to same-sex couples because it conflicted with her Christian beliefs. The 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Cincinnati said a lower court judge erred in finding that damages claims by David Ermold and

David Moore became moot, after a new state law last July excused clerks like Davis, from Rowan County, from having to sign marriage license forms. While the couple eventually did get a license, a three-judge appeals court panel said they could sue over Davis’ initial refusal to grant one, after the U.S. Supreme Court in June 2015 said the Constitution guaranteed a right to same-sex marriage.

California May Place ‘Third Gender’ Option on State Documents
MAY 2, 2017
A bill under consideration in California would place a third gender option on state documents — which, if it passes would make California the first state in the country to do so. The effort, however, is not being pushed by the “transgender movement,” but rather by people who are biologically neither male nor female — or, alternatively, both. According to a report by Sacramento’s local CBS affiliate (CBS13), it all started last year in New York: “Sara Kelly Keenan made
international headlines last year when New York City issued her the first ever birth certificate with an ‘intersex’ classification in the gender field, instead of male or female. ‘My body looks quite different from other women,” Keenan told CBS 13, who uses ‘she’ as a pronoun. Keenan says she was born intersex — having male genes, with female genitalia and mixed internal reproductive organs. Keenan kept her story secret for most of her life, but now that she is legally recognized, she wants to help others who feel they are neither man nor woman, but ‘non binary.’”

Are Severe Natural Disasters Evidence of the ‘Biblical End Times’?
MAY 3, 2017
As the third and final season of HBO’s “The Leftovers” airs — and as the U.S. faces intense challenges involving Russia, Iran, North Korea and other contentious nations — the topic of the end times has reemerged in pop culture and theological circles alike. This week, PRRI, a well-known public polling firm, distributed a press release highlighting some of the organization’s past findings on Americans’ end times views. To briefly recap: 49 percent of Americans believe that severe natural disasters are evidence of the biblical end times (52 percent of Republicans versus 48 percent of Democrats believe this is the case).
The polling firm also noted a stark difference between evangelicals and mainline Protestants, with 77 percent of white evangelicals and 74 percent of black Protestants attributing “the severity of natural disasters to biblical end times,” compared to just 35 percent of mainline Protestants and 29 percent of Americans who are unaffiliated with a faith (mainline Protestants are overwhelmingly white, hence the lack of a racial breakdown on this indicator).

Puerto Rico Declares Bankruptcy
MAY 3, 2017
Puerto Rico’s leadership moved on Wednesday to place the island’s debt crisis into federal bankruptcy court, making it the largest United States government entity to seek court refuge from its creditors in American history. The move sends Puerto Rico into uncharted territory. America’s recent spate of municipal bankruptcies has involved various state and federal laws, but Puerto Rico is not a state, so none of that hard-won precedent will apply. The outcome of its case could help determine where and how the deep financial troubles of certain states,
such as Illinois, are resolved. On an island that has already been experiencing an exodus of its professionals and well-educated citizens, the move toward bankruptcy is widely perceived as another sign that Puerto Rico has lost all control of its future.The island has been in a painful recession since 2006, and previous governments dug it deeper into debt by borrowing to pay operating expenses. For the last two years, Puerto Rico has been seeking assistance from Washington, sending officials to testify before stern congressional committees and even making fast-track oral arguments before the United States Supreme Court.

Ongoing Earthquake Swarm Continues In Skagway, Alaska
MAY 1, 2017
An ongoing swarm of earthquakes, with the largest quakes measuring M6.3, M6.2 and M5.2, is currently rattling near Skagway, Alaska. The two earthquake >M6.0 are the strongest to be felt in Southeast Alaska since a magnitude 7.5 earthquake centered west of Craig on Jan. 4, 2013. No reports of damages and no tsunami threat. A series of strong quakes is currently hitting the Canadian-Alaskan border. Shaking was felt across hundreds of miles, from Petersburg to the center of the Yukon.
In downtown Whitehorse, the shaking set off alarms in at least one business, and small landslides were also observed from that city’s clay cliffs. Power was briefly disrupted in Whitehorse as well. By email, Yakutat resident Don Bremner said he was awoken by the 4:30 a.m. quake, and the following event two hours later “felt as if you were getting a dizzy spell in slow motion!” READ MORE http://strangesounds.org/2017/05/m6-3-m6-2-and-m5-2-alaska-canada-swarm-strong-quakes-skagway-alaska-video.html

DEVELOPING: Trump Considering Moves to Break Up Big Banks…
MAY 1, 2017
President Donald Trump said he’s actively considering a break up of giant Wall Street banks, giving a push to efforts to revive a Depression-era law separating consumer and investment banking. “I’m looking at that right now,” Trump said of breaking up banks in a 30-minute Oval Office interview with Bloomberg News. “There’s some people that want to go back to the old system, right? So we’re going to look at that.”
Trump also said he’s open to increasing the U.S. gas tax to fund infrastructure development, in a further sign that policies unpopular with the Republican establishment are under consideration in the White House. He described higher gas taxes as acceptable to truckers — “I have one friend who’s a big trucker,” he said — as long as the proceeds are dedicated to improving U.S. highways.

LGBT Flag Seen Displayed at Billy Graham’s Wheaton College
MAY 1, 2017
(Reported By Todd Starnes) There’s a controversy brewing at one of the nation’s most prominent Christian colleges. It seems someone posted a gay pride flag in the dining hall at Wheaton College. The mother of a Wheaton student sent me a photograph. “When the gay pride flag flies at your Christian college, it is a direct attack on the Word of God; it’s shameful,” the parent told me.
She asked that she not be identified, and I’ve obliged. “Wheaton has compromised with truth long ago and fears the wrath of media and gay students more than they fear the Lord God,” she said. Wheaton College released a statement admitting that someone had posted the gay pride flag without permission—but it has since been taken down. “The flag, which had been placed among a display of international flags that hang throughout the dining hall, was immediately removed from the display,” the statement read.

Satanic Temple to Erect ‘Luciferian Light’ Memorial to Dead Soldiers in Minnesota
MAY 1, 2017
The Satanic Temple has been granted permission to erect a memorial to soldiers killed in action beside a Christian memorial at Belle Plaine’s Veterans Memorial Park in Minnesota. The Star Tribune reported on Saturday that city leaders initially decided in January to remove a Christian memorial featuring a soldier kneeling before a cross and a Bible, fearing a lawsuit from atheists.
City residents protested against the removal, however, which led officials to designate an area in the park as a “free speech zone,” allowing other religions and organizations to erect their own temporary memorials. The Satanic Temple, headquartered in Salem, Massachusetts, has since said it’s planning to put up its own memorial, described as a “black cube, inscribed with inverted pentagrams and crowned by an upturned helmet.”

What Will Turkish President Erdogan’s New Powers Mean for Christians?
MAY 1, 2017
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s major referendum victory last, which gave him sweeping new powers, has prompted concerns about what the future will hold for persecuted Christians and other minorities there.Burak Bekdil, an Ankara-based columnist who has has been writing on the developments in Turkey for the Gatestone Institute, an international policy council and think tank, told The Christian Post in an interview on Thursday that Erdogan has
capitalized on a “Crescent vs. Crusaders theme” that made him popular among the country’s conservative and nationalist masses. “This collective hysteria fuels xenophobia that is already a powerful phenomenon in Turkey. Non-Muslims, often targets by nationalist/Islamist groups, will now have reason to worry more,” Bekdil told CP. He suggested that life will be more difficult for anyone in Turkey who dissents against the president, Muslims and non-Muslims alike.

Are you ready for “Lab-Grown Meat” Coming to Supermarket Shelves Soon?
MAY 1, 2017
If this Silicon Valley food-tech startup has its way, its lab-grown meat—which includes chicken, duck and beef—will be on a supermarket shelf near you within the next five years. “[We’re] trying to put products on the shelves by 2021/2022,” Uma Valeti, Memphis Meats co-founder and CEO, tells FOX Business. In March, the company announced that it created the “world’s first chicken strip from animal cells,” following their animal-free meatball debut in 2016. Lab-grown beef was previously developed in 2012 by a group of Dutch scientists.

“Essentially, we are taking a number of animal cells, giving them clean and nutritious food and then we watch them grow into a muscle. We harvest that muscle and then cook it,” Valeti says. The whole process from start to finish takes about four to six weeks, depending on the texture. Valeti says the company’s current main goal is to raise capital and lower their production costs, in order to quickly bring the product to market.

Tornado Rips Apart Texas Church — 45 People Inside Left Totally Unscathed
MAY 1, 2017
A deadly series of tornadoes swept through Texas, Arkansas and Missouri over the weekend, killing more than a dozen people and leaving destruction in their paths, and the impact at one church near Dallas, Texas, is creating quite a bit of buzz. St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church was among the buildings that were dramatically impacted when a tornado ripped through the town of Emory on Saturday.
But while the roof and walls of the church building were torn off and “both ends of the building were blown out,” as Peyton Low, the Diocese of Tyler’s director of public affairs told media, not one of the 45 people inside were injured. There reportedly wasn’t even a scratch on any of the adults or children huddled inside.

Persecution in Iran Resulting in Explosion of Church Growth!
MAY 1, 2017
The irony is stark: One of the worst countries in the world for Christians to be living in is also the country where the Church is growing the fastest. That country is the Islamic Republic of Iran, which is listed as the eighth worst Christian-persecuting country in the world on the 2017 Open Doors USA World Watch list. But now, Iran has gained the distinction of being the leading country in the world where the church is growing and influencing the region for Christ, according to the Christian persecution watchdog.
Last year the mission research organization Operation World listed Iran as having a 19.6 percent rise in its Christian population annually — more than any other country in the world, according to Mission Network News. Todd Nettleton with The Voice of the Martyrs, USA described the irony of it all on the group’s persecution blog. He noted that the Ayatollah Khomeini, the radical Islamic leader who took power in Iran in 1979, turned out to be “the greatest evangelist we’ve had in Iran.”

Pastor Greg Laurie Praying America Isn’t Destroyed By North Korea, Potentially Fulfilling Bible Prophecy
MAY 2, 2017
Pastor Greg Laurie of Harvest Christian Fellowship in Riverside, California, has spoken out about the threat of nuclear war between the United States and North Korea, and analyzed how it all fits into End Times prophecy in the Bible. “As you know, the conflict with this rogue nation has escalated dramatically in recent days and even hours,” Laurie said in a Facebook video on Monday, referring to the hostile rhetoric of North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un. Laurie argued that Kim’s threat to strike the U.S. with nuclear weapons “can’t be dismissed or taken lightly.”

“How does this fit into the prophetic puzzle? Well, in the last days there is no mention of any nation that would resemble North Korea,” the megachurch pastor offered, but said that Iran, which is present in the End Times scenario, could potentially acquire weapons from North Korea. “Here is what concerns me. We do not find the reigning superpower on the face of the Earth anywhere in the Last Days scenario. Other nations emerge. So where is America? I pray we are not out of the picture, because we have been in some kind of nuclear conflict,” Laurie added.

Eerily Accurate 1968 Prophecy From A 90-Year-Old Woman In Norway Is Being Fulfilled Right Before Our Eyes
MAY 1, 2017
(By Michael Snyder) In 1968, a 90-year-old woman in Norway was given an incredible glimpse into the future. She was shown what life would be like just before World War III and the return of Jesus Christ, and what she saw is eerily similar to current conditions in our world today. When evangelist Emanuel Minos held meetings in the town of Valdres, Norway where she lived, this precious elderly lady shared what the Lord had shown to her with him. Minos wrote down what he was told, and it got put away in a drawer for 30 years.

But after many of the things that she saw started to come to pass, Minos remembered the vision and decided to share it with the world. One of the reasons why I wanted to share this vision now is because it has so many parallels to other visions that I have been sharing recently. You can read her entire vision here, but in this article I just wanted to highlight a few portions of it. One of the things that this 90-year-old woman was shown was that there would be a “lukewarmness without parallel” before Jesus comes back and that “Christians will not be open for penetrating preaching”…

It Is Becoming Illegal To Be Homeless In America As Houston, Dallas And Dozens Of Other Cities Pass Draconian Laws
MAY 1, 2017
(Reported By Michael Snyder) Should we make homelessness against the law and simply throw all homeless people into prison so that we don’t have to deal with them? Incredibly, this is actually starting to happen in dozens of major cities all across the United States. It may be difficult to believe, but in many large urban areas today, if you are found guilty of “public camping” you can be taken directly to jail. In some cities, activities such as “blocking a walkway” or creating any sort of “temporary structure for human habitation” are also considered to be serious crimes.
And there are some communities that have even made it illegal to feed the homeless without an official permit. Unfortunately, as the U.S. economy continues to slow down the number of homeless people will continue to grow, and so this is a crisis that is only going to grow in size and scope. Of course the goal of many of these laws is to get the homeless to go somewhere else. But as these laws start to multiply all across the nation, pretty soon there won’t be too many places left where it is actually legal to be homeless.

After Losing Their Homes and Crops to Devastating Peru Floods, Victims Ask for Bibles
MAY 1, 2017
Since December last year, the South American nation of Peru has been battered by devastating floods and mudslides amid heavy rains caused by the sudden and abnormal warming of Pacific waters, reports say. According to the U.S. Agency for International Development, the still continuing severe weather and related natural disasters have affected 1.1 million people. As of April 19, the Peruvian government reported that the disasters have killed more than 110 people, injured over 400 others, and displaced as many as 184,000 people.
The disasters brought about by a local El Nino phenomenon, or the warming of surface sea temperatures in the Pacific, will likely continue along Peru’s northern coast at least through April, a Peruvian scientist told Reuters. Peruvian President Pedro Pablo Kuczynski said his country will need some US$9 billion (S$12.5 billion) to rebuild and modernize the affected areas, according to Agence France Presse.

Jordan Tells Israel: Withdraw And You’ll Get “Security”
MAY 1, 2017
Jordan’s Foreign Minister Ayman Safadi on Saturday said Arab countries would provide security for Israel if it withdraws from Judea and Samaria. Safadi’s comments came during a meeting with in Moscow with his counterpart, Sergey Lavrov. “In order for Israel to live in peace with the Arabs, it is necessary for them to leave the territories occupied after 1967. So if
this happens, the Arab countries will be ready to give security guarantees to Israel,” the Jordanian minister said,
according to the Russian Sputnik news agency. Safadi added that the Israeli-Palestinian Authority (PA) conflict was a key concern for the Middle East. “We consider the settlement of the Palestinian problem as a core of tensions in our region. That is why we definitely plan to create additional conditions for security and stability in our region and in the whole world,” he said, according to Sputnik.

LYING SIGNS AND WONDERS: Statue of Jesus Moves Head During Friday Mass
MAY 1, 2017
Churchgoers have hailed a ‘miracle’ after a statue of Jesus moved its head during mass. Footage apparently recorded by a member of the congregation shows the figure in the top right corner of the shot during a service. But halfway through the clip, the figure’s head suddenly moves from one side, dropping down. The video is said to have been filmed in the church of Santa Ana in Tepetitlan, in the state of Jalisco, western Mexico.
The clip has gone viral and the story of the “miracle”, as some villagers have described it, has made national headlines. Estela Gomez, one of those to have witnessed the phenomenon, told local media: “He wants to tell us something, he wants something from us.” Another villager claimed: “This could be a miracle”. But parish priest Juan Antonio Guerra Lule was more measured.

False Prophet Who Predicted Trump Victory Claims World War 3 Will Begin on This Date
MAY 1, 2017
An alleged “clairvoyant” who claimed to have predicted the electoral victory of U.S. President Donald Trump last year has now come up with a new stunning prediction: the day an apocalyptic World War 3 would begin this year. Horacio Villegas, who proclaims himself as a “supernatural being,” told the Daily Star Online that Trump would become the “illuminati king” who will “bring the world into WW3.” Villegas, who lives in Texas, said he had predicted that Trump
would attack Syria following the latter’s attack using chemical weapons—two events that actually happened. He predicted that the conflict would also suck in Russia, North Korea and China. Recently, he said he had a “dream” in which he saw “balls of fire falling from the sky and hitting the Earth.” “People everywhere were running around trying to hide from this destruction,” he said. “I believe these were symbolic of the nuclear missiles that will fall on cities and people throughout the world.” Villegas then made his grimmest forecast: World War 3 will erupt on May 13, 2017.

Russian Man Caught Playing Pokemon in Church Could be Sentenced to Prison for ‘Inciting Religious Hatred’
APRIL 30, 2017
Prosecutors in Russia have asked for a punishment of three and a half years in jail for a blogger who played the game “Pokemon Go” in a Russian Orthodox church and later posted a video to YouTube about it. He was charged with inciting religious hatred. Ruslan Sokolovsky, a 22-year-old popular blogger, was charged with “inciting hatred” and “insulting the feelings of religious believers” after he posted a YouTube video in August 2016, which sought to mock Christianity and

showed how he played “Pokemon Go” on his phone inside a church in the central city of Yekaterinburg. The video has been viewed more than 1.7 million times. “There are no grounds to let the defendant go unpunished,” a prosecutor told the court, according to Reuters. “I ask for a punishment of three years and six months of imprisonment for all crimes.” The court is scheduled to pronounce the verdict on May 11. Sokolovsky is currently under house arrest. He was arrested in September.

Trump Claims His First 100 Days ‘Most Successful in Our Country’s History’
APRIL 30, 2017
President Donald Trump, who hosted a rally in Pennsylvania Saturday, skipping the annual White House Correspondents Dinner, said his first 100 days in the White House have been “just about the most successful in our country’s history.””From the first day of my administration, I have governed by a simple idea: My only allegiance is to you, our wonderful citizens,” Trump said in his weekly address Saturday. “I truly believe that the first 100 days of my administration has been just about the most successful in our country’s history.

Most importantly, we’re bringing back jobs. You asked the people of Michigan; you asked the people of Ohio; you can ask the people of Pennsylvania.”He continued, “See the car companies come roaring back in. They don’t want to leave. They want to stay here. They want a piece of the action. Our country is going up and it’s going up fast. Our companies are doing better. They just announced fantastic profits all because of what’s happened in this rather short period of time, and that’s just the beginning. We’re putting in a massive tax cut for the middle class and for business. It’s going to have an enormous effect.”

1 in 8 children in California schools have an undocumented parent
APRIL 30, 2017
Posing significant challenges for educators, about 1 in 8 students in California schools has at least one parent who is undocumented, according to a new brief from the Education Trust-West. Undocumented children, as well as U.S. citizen children with undocumented relatives, have experienced heightened anxieties for several years as a result of deportation policies begun under President George W. Bush and tightened ones under President Barack Obama.

But according to school officials, those anxieties have reached new heights since Donald Trump’s inauguration, with possible consequences on their ability to focus on school work, the willingness of parents to attend school events, or even to bring their children to school. Education Trust-West, an advocacy organization in Oakland, estimates that 750,000 students in California’s preK-12 schools have an undocumented parent, out of a total enrollment of 6.2 million. Some of these students may be undocumented themselves, but the vast majority of K-12 children with undocumented parents are U.S. citizens.

US Approves Possible $440 Million Arms Sale To Israel
APRIL 30, 2017
The State Department approved a “Possible Foreign Military Sale” to Israel, according to a Defense Security Cooperation Agency press release published on Friday. The agency said that the Israeli government requested to purchase 13 76-mm. naval guns, as well as a variety of naval maintenance materials and tools, technical, logistics and support services, operations and maintenance training and other related supplies and services. The estimated cost of such a deal is $440 million.
“The United States is committed to the security of Israel,” said the press release. “And it is vital to US national interests to assist Israel to develop and maintain a strong and ready self-defense capability… This proposed sale will contribute to the foreign policy and national security of the United States by helping to improve the security of a strategic regional partner that has been, and continues to be, an important force for political stability and economic progress in the Middle East.”

Could the Antichrist Arise From the 8th Kingdom?
APRIL 30, 2017
(By Perry Stone) Among the writings of the Old Testament prophets, Moses is named in Scripture 768 times, while Abram or Abraham’s name is mentioned 303 times. The one individual who holds more predictions about His appearance and ministry throughout the Scriptures is the promised Messiah. The only other person who receives such attention in the biblical prophetic Scriptures is a person identified as the final prince of darkness called the Antichrist.
There are few Christians in America today who have not heard the term Antichrist. The average Christian in the Western Hemisphere who has read prophecy books, watched end-time DVDs or viewed apocalyptic-oriented television specials understands four basic facts revealed in Scripture about the coming Antichrist. They are:
The Antichrist is a man who will form a final empire at the end of the age.
The Antichrist will make a treaty with Israel for seven years.
The Antichrist will eventually set up his kingdom in Jerusalem.
The Antichrist will be involved in the final battle called Armageddon.
Two biblical prophets, Daniel and the apostle John, give numerous details in their writings and prophetic visions concerning this man’s rise to power, his realm of influence and his violent reaction to those who reject his mission. Much of the church’s historical understanding of this man comes from two prophetic books, Daniel and Revelation.

Turkey has banned radio and TV dating programs with a decree made possible by the country’s state of emergency. A new clause has been added to the article on protecting children in the country’s media law. “In radio and television broadcasting services, such programs in which people are introduced with the purpose of finding a friend or searching for a spouse… cannot be permitted,”says a statement in Turkey’s Official Gazette, which publishes new legislation. Reports
that Turkey may ban matchmaking reality shows emerged this year in March, when Turkish Deputy Prime Minister Numan Kurtulmus said that “there are some strange programs that would scrap the institution of family, take away its nobility and sanctity.” “We are working on this and we are coming to the end of it. God willing, in the near future, we will most likely remedy this with an emergency decree,” Kurtulmus said, adding “God willing, we will meet these societal demands.”

Powerful Super Storm Stretches From New York to the Texas Panhandle
APRIL 30, 2017
This is what a superstorm looks like!
https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=9&v=0fDHIm4XeWA

A very large, powerful storm system is forming over the United States stretching from New York all the way back to the Texas Panhandle. It looks like an anomalous “energy rush” of some sort. And the
‘deadly’ superstorm continues to grow. You will/may get downpours, floods, snow, tornado, hail, winds through the weekend from New York to Texas! This system, based off of these satellite images has the potential to create some very intense storms.

11 Reasons Why U.S. Economic Growth Is The Worst That It Has Been In 3 Years
APRIL 30, 2017
(Reported By Michael Snyder) Those that were predicting that the U.S. economy would be flying high by now have been proven wrong. U.S. GDP grew at the worst rate in three years during the first quarter of 2017, and many are wondering if this is the beginning of a major economic slowdown. Of course when we are dealing with the official numbers that the federal government puts out, it is important to acknowledge that they are highly manipulated. There are many that have correctly pointed out to me that if

the numbers were not being doctored that they would show that we are still in a recession. In fact, John Williams of shadowstats.com has shown that if honest numbers were being used that U.S. GDP growth would have been consistently negative going all the way back to 2005. So I definitely don’t have any argument with those that claim that we are actually in a recession right now. But even if we take the official numbers that the federal government puts out at face value, they are definitely very ugly…

Violent Persecution of Christians Rising in India – Attack Recorded Every 40 Hours
APRIL 30, 2017
A new report says that violent attacks on the Christian minority in India are increasing at an alarming rate, as the emboldened members of groups close to the governing Hindu nationalist party seek to create a “Hindu nation.” There’s an anti-Christian attack every 40 hours, the report highlights.The report by the All India Christian Council says attacks against Christians increased by about 20 percent in 2016, and physical violence against Christians was up by as much as 40 percent. A fresh attack is being reported every 40 hours, it added.
“The attacks have become severe and more frequent. Incidents used to be confined to a few states. Now the violence has spread to 23 states,” the report notes, pointing out that the sharpest rise has been recorded in the northern Uttar Pradesh state and the southern state of Telangana. The attacks involve physical beating, vandalism and torching of churches, burning of Bibles, death threats, forcing Christians to renounce their faith and convert to Hinduism, and disruption of and attacks on church services and prayer meetings.

Is ISIS a Reenactment of Biblical War Between Israel and the Amalekites?
APRIL 30, 2017
Some military analysts have suggested that the war against the Islamic State terror group, particularly in its attacks on Egypt, is a reenactment of an ancient biblical confrontation between Israel and the Amalekites. “Exodus tells of the legendary battle between Amalek, the ancestral enemy of the Jewish people, and the Israelites, which took place at a site called Rephidim, located in the Egyptian desert,” Breaking Israel News reported in an article on Thursday.
“Two thousand years later, a new battle against Israel’s enemies is being staged in exactly the same place: an Egyptian airfield in Bir Gafgafa, which is located precisely on the biblical site of Rephidim in the Sinai Peninsula.” BIN credited the observations to Giora Shamis, editor of the Israeli military intelligence website Debka Files, who noted that on this particular issue, Egypt is an ally of Israel in the battle against the Islamic State.

Christian University Students Call School’s Biblical Views on Sex, Gender Identity ‘UnChrist-Like’
APRIL 30, 2017
A student club at Seattle Pacific University recently protested against the Christian university because it adheres to biblical views on human sexuality and gender identity. The club, called SPU Haven, which advocates for gay students, claims that the university’s “Statement on Human Sexuality” is “unethical, unscientific and unChrist-like,” according to College Fix. Members of SPU Haven protested against the left-leaning university during the “Day of Silence,”
a national event that was held at university campuses and high schools on April 21 to bring attention to the “silencing effects of anti-LGBTQ name-calling, bullying and harassment.” While the SPU administration said it supports students taking part in LGBT activism, it removed posters the students displayed around campus showing cartoon images of students’ mouths taped shut because they didn’t follow the university guidelines.

UPDATE: UMC Rules Against LGBT Bishops As Clergy
APRIL 29, 2017
The United Methodist Church Judicial Council ruled lesbian, gay, transgender and bisexual members could not be consecrated as clergy. The ruling came after married lesbian Karen Oliveto was consecrated as bishop last year. Despite the ruling, Oliveto can still serve as bishop until it is determined she violated these standards. “The Judicial Council had a difficult task of ruling on the narrow basis of church law that has been carefully developed over the years to protect the
rights of clergy accused of wrongdoing—sometimes well beyond the bounds of reasonable doubt and to the point of sidelining concern for victims,” UMAction Director and 2016 General Conference delegate John Lomperis said in a release. “I celebrate that these landmark rulings should now make it significantly easier to bring accountability for pastors who choose to violate biblical standards for sexual self-control. We are slowly but increasingly strengthening biblical accountability in our church,” the statement continued.

City Council Unanimously Votes to Remove Bench That Features ‘God’ Quote From State Founder
APRIL 29, 2017
A city council in Pennsylvania has unanimously voted to remove a park bench that was meant to honor veterans due to objection from an atheist group regarding a God-centered inscription on the display that is attributed to the state’s founder. “From an administration standpoint, this is heading toward litigation,” Mark Schroyer, the city manager of Oil City, told Explore Clarion.
“At that point, we have to decide what are our wins, losses and gain. … Our collective opinion is, if it’s winnable, it would be so costly [that] what would we actually be gaining other than taking the stand our residents are asking?” “Our biggest concern is exposure to attorney fees,” also remarked City Solicitor Robert Varsek. “We would be sued for injunctive relief where they order the city to remove the bench, and for damages and also be sued for attorney fees under the civil rights law.”

Measles outbreak among Somali refugees stretches Minneapolis health system…
APRIL 29, 2017
An outbreak of measles is sweeping through a community of Somali refugees in Minnesota and the growing number of cases may be starting to test the limits of the Hennepin County healthcare system. According to reports from the health commissioner’s office, there are now 30 cases of children in Hennepin County who have been diagnosed with measles, and 28 of them are Somali children who have not been vaccinated.
All of the cases involve children 5 years of age and younger. There have been 10 new cases of measles reported in Hennepin County in just the last four days.

U.S. Economy Reports Slowest Growth in 3 years For First Quarter
APRIL 28, 2017
The government’s official scorecard for the U.S. economy in the first quarter pointed to the weakest growth in three years, but the slowdown appeared tied to temporary effects that are likely to give way a rebound in the coming months. Gross domestic product increased at a meager 0.7% annual pace in the first three months of the year, down from 2.1% and 3.5% in the back half of 2016. Economists polled by
MarketWatch had forecast a 0.9% increase. In recent trading, the Dow Jones Industrial Average DJIA, -0.17% and the S&P 500 index SPX, -0.18% fell slightly. The steep drop-off stemmed from the smallest increase in consumer spending since the end of 2009, largely reflecting fewer sales at car dealers. Consumer outlays rose just 0.3%, a steep drop from the 3.5% gain at the end of 2016.

Program Glorifying False Gods Marked Most Politically Relevant Show on TV
APRIL 28, 2017
A storm is brewing in Starz’s gritty new series “American Gods,” as deities old and new gear up for a battle that reverberates with topical issues in the real world. Immigration, race, religion and sexuality are all examined in “American Gods” through the saga of Shadow Moon, a convict who is released to the news of his wife’s death. He is hired to be the bodyguard of an old grifter named Mr. Wednesday, the disguise of the Norse god Odin.
“This show has become the most politically relevant show on TV without a doubt,” actor Ricky Whittle, who plays Shadow, told Reuters at the red-carpet premiere on Thursday. “American Gods,” which premieres on premium cable network Starz on April 30, is based on British author Neil Gaiman’s 2001 novel of the same name, a surreal story of how the old gods of folklore struggle to be revered and remembered in an age of new gods like technology and media.

Wait Until You Hear Why This Pentecostal Megachurch Pastor is Burning Bibles!
APRIL 28, 2017
A Pentecostal pastor in Uganda’s capital has reportedly torched thousands of Bibles because they were “fake” and “demonic.” Pastor Aloysius Bugingo of the House of Prayer Ministries in Kampala ordered the burning of the Good News Bible and the King James Version because they used the words “Holy Ghost” instead of “Holy Spirit.” The Easter Weekend action shocked and angered church leaders in the country, with many terming his actions an insult to
Christianity. “We condemn the act in the strongest terms possible,” Bishop Herman Sentamu, leader of the Passover Harvest church, a large Pentecostal group in Uganda, said in a telephone interview Wednesday (April 26). “Holy Ghost” and “Holy Spirit” are interchangeable terms for the third entity of the Christian Trinity composed of God, Son and Holy Spirit. In the late 19th and early 20th centuries the term “Holy Spirit” came into wider use and is now preferred by many Christians.

Did Pope Francis Just Make Another Move for One World Religion?
APRIL 28, 2017
Pope Francis arrived in Cairo on Friday hoping to mend ties with Muslim leaders, just as Egypt’s ancient Christian community faces unprecedented pressure from Islamic State militants who have threatened to wipe it out. In an address to the Egyptian people this week, Francis said he hoped his visit would help bring peace and encourage dialog and reconciliation with the Islamic world.
But it comes at a painful time for Egypt’s Copts, the Middle East’s largest Christian community, three weeks after Islamic State suicide bombers killed 45 people in twin church bombings. Those attacks followed a cathedral bombing that killed 28 people in December and a spree of murders that has forced hundreds of Christians to flee North Sinai, where the group is most active. “Pope of Peace in Egypt of Peace,” read posters plastered along the road leading from the airport to central Cairo, showing a smiling pope, his hand raised above the Christian cross and the Crescent moon of Islam.

Rare Quadruple Rainbows Appear on the Isle of Terschelling, Netherlands
APRIL 29, 2017
It’s a treat to see a rainbow painting the sky, and seeing a double rainbow always gets our attention, but how many of us have seen four bows at the same time? The anomalous rainbow “quad” shown below was photographed from the island of Terschelling in the Netherlands on April 28, 2017. The bright primary bow (left most) and fainter secondary bow (right
most) are a result of refraction and reflection of sunlight in raindrops – a second reflection within the drops creates the secondary bow. However, the fainter bows – behind the first ones – isn’t due to a third raindrop reflection but rather to reflection off the primary and secondary rainbows, respectively. The reflected rainbow crosses the main level with the horizon, then it passes over it.

DAYS OF LOT: New Bill Would Ban Conversion Therapy For LGBTQ People Nationwide
APRIL 29, 2017
Democratic lawmakers this week introduced a bill that would ban the practice of “conversion therapy,” treatments that historically have targeted the LGBT community and claim to be able to change a person’s sexual orientation or gender identity. The Therapeutic Fraud Prevention Act of 2017 was introduced Tuesday by Rep. Ted Lieu (D-Calif.), along with Sens. Patty Murray (D-Wash.) and Cory Booker (D-N.J.). About 70 other members of Congress, all Democrats, have said
they support the bill, which would allow the Federal Trade Commission to classify conversion therapy and its practitioners as fraudulent. “The bill is very simple,” Lieu told The Washington Post. “It says it is fraud if you treat someone for a condition that doesn’t exist and there’s no medical condition known as being gay. LGBTQ people were born perfect; there is nothing to treat them for. And by calling this what it should be, which is fraud, it would effectively shut down most of the organizations.”

The Ring of Fire is heating up with 37 volcanoes are currently being reported erupting and others showing signs of increased seismic unrest as well. Located on the Japanese Island of Kyushu, the Sakurajima volcano suddenly threw ash in the sky with a height of more than three kilometers on April 28, 2017. According to the Japan Meteorological Agency, it’s the first volcano eruption in the current calendar year.
The last eruption took place in July 2016. The eruption of Nishinoshima in Japan is picking up speed. A week ago the volano started erupting for the first time after more than 1 year of calm. Now, there are newly 3 active vents, the main crater has strombolian eruptions and two new vents are erupting a flows of lava towards the South and West. The western flow has entered the ocean. It will be interesting how long time this eruption lasts, and how much new Surface it will add to the Island of Nishinoshima.

Student told to stop reading Bible before class
APRIL 29, 2017
A Northern Arizona University student was recently asked to stop reading his Bible prior to the start of one of his classes, according to audio obtained by Campus Reform. In a recording of the February incident, provided to Campus Reform by Kevin Cavanaugh for Congress, Mark Holden explains the situation to History Department Chair Derek Heng, who had been called in by the instructor, Dr. Heather Martel, after Holden had refused her request that he put his Bible away.
Holden tells Heng that he had arrived early to his U.S. history course and, as usual, used the spare time to read his Bible, but claims that Martel had objected to the routine because she didn’t want to see a Bible in front of her. “So Prof. Martel says that she doesn’t want you sitting in front of her because you put, you know, a Bible out, right?” Heng can be heard explaining to Holden, adding that while he doesn’t “know what the dynamics [are] going on in the classroom,” the “real key is to make sure that, you know, the class is able to go on and that you are in the classroom.”

British Military May Have Just Created ‘Iron Man’ Flying Suit
APRIL 29, 2017
lying soldiers have been historically confined to science fiction or comic books, but a British inventor may be about to change the course of warfare. Richard Browning, who has been dubbed the ‘Iron Man’ of Wiltshire, has constructed a personal flight suit and amazed delegates at this year’s TED Conference when he lifted off from the short of Vancouver Harbour. Mr Browning, a Royal marine reserve,
said a member the British military had already displayed interest in the suit, and had told him that the Ministry of Defence had given up on the idea of flying soldiers until they saw his design.Although the MoD told the Telegraph they were unaware of the conversation, they said they are currently looking for ‘innovative military solutions’ as part of an £800 million scheme to improve defence.

Apple Picking Robots Could Replace Workers Leaving Many Concerned.
APRIL 28, 2017
Harvesting Washington state’s vast fruit orchards each year requires thousands of farmworkers, and many of them work illegally in the United States. That system eventually could change dramatically as at least two companies are rushing to get robotic fruit-picking machines to market. The robotic pickers don’t get tired and can work 24 hours a day.
“Human pickers are getting scarce,” said Gad Kober, a co-founder of Israel-based FFRobotics. “Young people do not want to work in farms, and elderly pickers are slowly retiring.” FFRobotics and Abundant Robotics, of Hayward, California, are racing to get their mechanical pickers to market within the next couple of years.

Talks Underway For New Conservative Network To Replace Fox News
APRIL 28, 2017
On the heels of major shakeups at the Fox News Network, an alternative conservative network is being actively discussed amongst conservative fat cats. A well-placed source close to the proposal tells Mediaite that serious discussions are underway to create an alternative conservative cable network on the belief that the Fox News Network is moving too far to the left.
The source, who is engaged in the talks, says a meeting is planned for today with two prominent high-powered television executives, some underperforming conservative networks and people who have an interest and the ability to fund a new network. The potential aim? Putting “the old band” back together. There are certainly plenty of (out-of-work?) conservative powerhouses to pick from that could star on a new network, and perhaps even some executives from within Fox News who might be lured by the new opportunity.

CIA implanted microphones into cats to spy on Russia
APRIL 28, 2017
CIA spooks tried to spy on Soviet Russia using CATS implanted with microphones under their skin. Declassified docs show how spy chiefs praised “pioneering” scientists for slitting open moggies and stitching in electronic hardware to uncover their enemies’ secrets. Dubbed “Project Acoustic Kitty”, the grim £10 million programme was developed over five years in the 1960s as a novel but gruesome new eavesdropping method.
A cat’s tail was used as an antenna and a wire travelled all the way up its spine connecting to a microphone in its ear, while a battery was housed in its chest. But on its first test, its CIA handlers watched on in horror as their robo-kitty was run over and killed just seconds into the mission.CIA insider Victor Maarcheti told The Atlantic: “There they were, sitting in the van and the cat was dead.”

Over 40,000 Groups Will Gather For Prayer Next Week
APRIL 28, 2017
The annual National Day of Prayer will be observed next week with 40,000 events being held nationwide to pray for the country. Dion Elmore, chief communications officer with the Colorado Springs, Colorado-based National Day of Prayer Task Force, told The Christian Post that thus far between 40,000 and 45,000 events will be held on May 6.In 2016, the National Day of Prayer had a record number of individual events when approximately 47,000 local events were held nationwide.
Elmore also told CP that since the sacred observance was started, “every [president’s] administration has sent representation to the National Day of Prayer Observance.” “Our hope is that is that, once again, citizens of the United States will be encouraged by the presidential and gubernatorial proclamations to ‘turn to God in prayer and meditation at churches, in groups, and as individuals,’ believing what the scripture teaches in James 5:16, that ‘the effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.'”

Google Launches “Project Owl” to Eliminate “Fake News” From Search Engine
APRIL 28, 2017
On Tuesday morning, Google announced some major changes meant to fight the fake news and hate speech that keep polluting its search results. The Google update, codenamed “Project Owl,” gives consumers two new ways to report what they perceive as problems in the search results. The company is also using teams of humans as part of an effort to get its algorithms to show more reliable information. Here’s a plain English Q&A about the changes and what they mean to you.
The search giant has been under fire for search results that show false, offensive, or outrageous information about certain topics. For instance, Google prominently displayed links to pro-Nazi sites in response to queries about the Holocaust. Or when people started typing phrases about women or racial groups, Google would suggest queries like “Why are women so dumb?” Needless to say this got a lot of negative media attention. Even though Google does not like interfering with its algorithms—which are supposed to find the most helpful answers to a given topic—the problem became big enough Google decided to take action.

Intense Prophetic Dream Reveals Your Breakthrough Is at Hand
APRIL 28, 2017
(By Joe Joe Dawson) Late on Easter night before I went to bed, I had a moment with the Lord. I just wasn’t praying, but rather there was a deep groan that came from my soul and spirit asking God for a visitation from Him through prophetic dreams and visions that night. I remember saying, “God, I am so desperate for a dream that will speak to my wife and I about our future, the future of our city, region and our nation. I remember going to sleep with great expectation that my God was going to speak to me. I knew that when the Lord visited me with a prophetic dream that it was going to be a kairos moment that would be a marking point for our future.
At 2:55 a.m., I woke up, having just experienced a prophetic dream. In the dream, the sky was filled with an angelic battle. The dream was so clear, and the heavens were filled with heavenly angels and demonic powers engaged in warfare. Then suddenly a loud roar from heaven came. Then all of the demonic angels were blown away and fell to the wayside. There was a glorious burst of light, and the dream was filled with a glow, and gold filled the place and overtook the vision. When I awakened, I heard this phrase over and over again. “Now is the time, now is the time, now is the time.” I got up out of bed and started to pray in the Spirit.

Wisconsin university approves Israel boycott
APRIL 28, 2017
The student government of the University of Wisconsin-Madison unanimously passed a divestment resolution targeting companies operating in many countries that included an amendment specifically about Israel, JTA reported Thursday. The resolution, which passed Wednesday by the Associated Students of Madison by a 24-0 vote with two abstentions, calls on the university and its foundation to divest from companies involved in private prisons, arms manufacture, fossil fuels and border walls, and banks that “oppress marginalized communities.”

The vote comes a month after a divestment resolution specifically targeting Israel failed to pass the student government and two weeks after the student government passed a proposal to create a new financial transparency and ethics subcommittee, according to JTA. That meeting was held April 12, the second day of Passover, when several Jewish representatives were absent.

Meteor Seen Streaking Over South Florida
APRIL 28, 2017
A fireball streaked across the sky overnight, according to multiple reports. By 4 a.m. Wednesday, the American Meteor Society received nearly 50 reports about the flaming streak in the night sky. A meteorologist at CBS Miami also recorded video, the station’s website said. The object was likely a meteor breaking up in the atmosphere. It was visible from the
Keys to Port St. Lucie on the east coast and as far north as Tampa on the west coast, reports said.Among those who spotted and were able to record the fireball was Monroe County Sheriff’s Deputy Sgt. Evan Calhoun. He was on patrol in the Lower Keys, on Big Pine Key, shortly before 11 p.m. Tuesday when his dashcam unit taped the meteor as it streaked across the night sky.

Last 2 Chapters of Revelation Reveal Important Intersection in End-Times Prophecy
APRIL 28, 2017
(By Asher Intrater) Since John was the last writer of Scriptures, his writings contain a unique view of the whole spectrum of Scriptures from beginning to end. John often spoke in terms of “beginning to end” (John 1:1; 1 John 1:1; Rev. 1:8, 17).
This “beginning to end” perspective comes to light particularly in the last chapters of Revelation. The first two chapters of Genesis describe creation and Eden; whereas the last two chapters of Revelation describe the restoration of creation and Eden.
In these last two chapters, there is a special addition about “heavenly Jerusalem” (21:9-22:3). Glorified Jerusalem becomes the centerpiece of the restoration of Paradise. Heaven and earth come together as heavenly and earthly Jerusalem come together. The glorious destiny of both Eden and Jerusalem are one and the same.

(By Bert Farias) What some people call the hyper-grace message began as a result of a sort of revolt against religion and man-made rules. A portion of that message, however, went into a ditch on the other side and manifested as rebellion in some believers against every kind of discipline and godly conduct. In a word, Christians abused their liberty. There are now so-called “liberated” churches who party and drink alcohol, all in the name of “being free” from the Law. One church had a beach party with women dressed scantily in bikinis while beer and wine were being served. Their motto: “We want people to know that we’re not religious!”
Hmmm … what does that mean? What are some characteristics of “being religious”? Is there such a thing? I was raised as a devout Roman Catholic. I believe I have a pretty thorough understanding of religion, the Law and legalism—all being used here as synonymous terms. I define religion (without relationship) as man-made expectations enforced upon someone as a means of defining how they may be accepted in a particular religion, church or denominational system.

Christian Convert Cast Out by Muslim Family for Turning to Christ
APRIL 28, 2017
A Sudanese woman who became a Christian while working in Indonesia was forced out of her Muslim family’s home and told to never return after they learned about her conversion.Persecution watchdog group International Christian Concern shared Risma’s story on Wednesday, explaining that she initially moved to Jakarta to work as a shopkeeper. “One Sunday, Risma felt a strong urge to go to church.
This was especially unusual for Risma, since she was a Muslim and never went to church. For some reason, she went anyway that day,” ICC reports. Risma shared that she felt “God’s presence” upon walking into the church. “Suddenly, she began sobbing, but in spite of the tears she felt overwhelmed with peace and joy like she had never felt before. She had no idea what this meant, but she knew something was different. She knew her life was changing,” the group added.

‘Happy Days’ Actress Came to Christ Through ‘Facts of Life’ Friend
APRIL 28, 2017
Erin Moran, the former child star who played Joanie Cunningham in the sitcom “Happy Days” and “Joanie Loves Chachi,” died Saturday at age 56. She died from stage four cancer. Her husband, Steve Fleischmann, says he held her hand as she passed away. “She was there watching TV in bed. I laid down next to her, held her right hand in my left. I fell asleep and woke up about a hour later still holding her hand,
and she was gone, she was just gone…” he said in a statement. While many mourn her death, new information reveals that Moran was a strong believer who knew the Lord before she died. Moran’s limo driver, Barton T. Wade, told Breaking Christian News that years ago, Moran told him about how her friend and fellow actress, Lisa Welchel had led her to the Lord, and that she had accepted Christ.

APPLE self-driving car seen on road for first time…
APRIL 28, 2017
t is no secret that Apple has been working furiously to develop self-driving car technology in a bid to compete with rivals including Google and Tesla. Until now, the operation has been kept from the public eye.Images have emerged of Apple’s first autonomous car on the roads of Silicon Valley. The car appears to be a Lexus RX450h that is fitted with a range of sensors, radar scanners and cameras. From the initial sighting,
the car seems to use similar technology to efforts by competitors. Apple’s car is fitted with a array of sensors for navigation including one called lidar, which has recently become the focus of a high-profile lawsuit between Google and Uber. Some of the sensors appeared to be made by third party companies, rather than Apple itself, someone who saw the vehicle told Bloomberg.

UPDATE: Benny Hinn Reveals Feds Investigating ‘Certain Operations of Church’ After Raid
APRIL 28, 2017
A day after criminal investigators from the IRS and inspectors from the U.S. Postal Service executed a closely guarded raid on the offices of his ministry in Grapevine, Texas, on Wednesday, popular faith-healing televangelist Benny Hinn revealed they are looking into “certain operations of the church.” Hinn did not go into much detail about which aspects of his ministry federal officials are reviewing, but in a statement on Facebook he said he’s confident the investigation will end favorably.
“As has been widely reported, Benny Hinn Ministries is cooperating fully with the governmental entities that are reviewing certain operations of the Church. The ministry has undergone intense scrutiny over the years, and we remain confident that there will again be a positive and speedy outcome in the days ahead,” the statement said. It ended: “Pastor Benny appreciates the love, prayers, and support of our beloved partners as we continue to minister the saving and healing Gospel of Jesus Christ throughout the world.”

Did Pope Francis Just Make Another Move for One World Religion?
APRIL 28, 2017
Pope Francis arrived in Cairo on Friday hoping to mend ties with Muslim leaders, just as Egypt’s ancient Christian community faces unprecedented pressure from Islamic State militants who have threatened to wipe it out. In an address to the Egyptian people this week, Francis said he hoped his visit would help bring peace and encourage dialog and reconciliation with the Islamic world.
But it comes at a painful time for Egypt’s Copts, the Middle East’s largest Christian community, three weeks after Islamic State suicide bombers killed 45 people in twin church bombings. Those attacks followed a cathedral bombing that killed 28 people in December and a spree of murders that has forced hundreds of Christians to flee North Sinai, where the group is most active. “Pope of Peace in Egypt of Peace,” read posters plastered along the road leading from the airport to central Cairo, showing a smiling pope, his hand raised above the Christian cross and the Crescent moon of Islam.

New Bill Would Force Pro-Life Pregnancy Centers in Hawaii to Advertise Abortion
APRIL 27, 2017
Earlier this month, Hawaii’s house of representatives voted 41-10 in favor of a bill that would require the state’s pro-life pregnancy centers to advertise abortion services, LifeSite News reported. The proposed measure known as SB 510 would force all community-funded pregnancy center — including the state’s five pro-life pregnancy organizations — to share with their clients the following message:

Hawaii has public programs that provide immediate free or low-cost access to comprehensive family planning services, including, but not limited to, all FDA-approved methods of contraception and pregnancy-related services for eligible women. To apply online for medical insurance coverage, that will cover the full range of family planning and prenatal care services, go to mybenefits.hawaii.gov. Only ultrasounds performed by qualified healthcare professionals and read by licensed clinicians should be considered medically accurate.

Why the Enemy Appears as an Angel of Light
APRIL 27, 2017
(By Michael Youssef) The very name Lucifer is taken from the word light or luciferous, which means “bringing light” or “illumination.” In Satan’s case, it is a false light—one that deceives rather than illuminates the truth. The reason the enemy appears as an angel of light is because he imitates God. Satan wants us to believe that he is as powerful as God. The Bible does describe him as the “god of this world,” and there are millions of people who unknowingly follow him and his leading each and every day.
Paul, however, was intent on bringing true light with the gospel message. He reminds each one of us that we were once “dead in [our] trespasses and sins, in which [we] formerly walked according to the age of this world and according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit who now works in the sons of disobedience: (Ephesians 2:1-2). However, the fact is that Christ has set us free from the bondage of sin. This does not give us the occasion to boast or to drop our guard. Every gift God gives, Satan counterfeits.

Scientists grow a working human brain in the lab
APRIL 27, 2017
Tiny human brains have been grown in a dish in what could herald a breakthrough in conditions like Alzheimer’s and schizophrenia. The brain cells have formed similar circuits to those of a two-month-old fetus, now giving scientists an opportunity to examine how the brain and any diseases develop. Researchers at Stanford University first grew two forebrain circuits, before going on to the next step of growing a mini organ over nine months.

Scientists will now be able to watch how the brain develops, with it hoped that the “entire movie” of a brain’s growth will be able to be monitored in the lab, rather than just snapshots. The process could be the first step towards being able to grow an entire human body in the lab, with researchers hoping that the “thrilling science” will be able to provide insights into brain conditions like Alzheimer’s and schizophrenia.

‘Figure of Jesus’ appears above Colombian city wiped out by giant landslide
APRIL 27, 2017
This is the amazing moment the ‘Figure of Jesus’ appeared in front of a crowd gathered to film the sunset over the city of Manizales which was ravaged by a giant landslide earlier this month. The rare cloud phenomenon provided comfort to Colombian landslide survivors who had lost their loved ones during a landslide that ripped through the city, killing 17 people a week ago.
Manizales was destroyed by landlsides a week ago. A crowd gathered to film the sunlight slanting through sky over in the city were cheered by what they believed was the figure of Jesus appearing in the clouds. The rare cloud phenomenon was recorded on a mountain called Sancancio. The shape of the mysterious sky phenomenon ressembles a figure of Jesus, or of the departure of Christ from Earth into the presence of God.

Only 20% Of Americans Read Entire Bible, Most Call It ‘Good Source of Morals’
APRIL 26, 2017
Only 20 percent of Americans have read the Bible in its entirety, according to a new survey which also found that most Americans have positive feelings toward it and would describe it as a “good source of morals.” LifeWay Research revealed that 10 percent of respondents read none of the Bible, 13 percent said they read only a few sentences, 30 percent said they knew of several passages or stories, 15 percent read at least half the Bible, and 12 percent read almost all of it. Overall, only 20 percent of the respondent said they read the entire Bible. “Most Americans don’t know first-hand the overall story of the Bible — because they rarely pick it up,” said Scott McConnell, executive director of LifeWay Research.
“Even among worship attendees less than half read the Bible daily. The only time most Americans hear from the Bible is when someone else is reading it.” The small percentage of Americans who have read all the scriptures is not for a lack of Bibles, LifeWay pointed out, with close to nine out of 10 households owning a copy. The average household owns three Bibles. Of those who read a little bit of the Bible each day, 49 percent were evangelicals while 16 percent were not evangelicals. As can be expected, those who attended church at least once a month were also more likely to read the Bible every day (39 percent), compared to those who attended less often (13 percent).

FALLING AWAY: Famine of the Word of God in America Opening Floodgates of Immorality
APRIL 26, 2017
(By Bob Smietana) Americans have a positive view of the Bible. And many say the Christian Scriptures are filled with moral lessons for today. However, more than half of Americans have read little or none of the Bible. Less than a quarter of those who have ever read a Bible have a systematic plan for reading the Christian Scriptures each day. And a third of Americans never pick it up on their own, according to a new study from Nashville-based LifeWay Research. Small wonder many church leaders worry about biblical illiteracy, said Scott McConnell, executive director of LifeWay Research. “Most Americans don’t know first-hand the overall story of
the Bible—because they rarely pick it up,” McConnell said. “Even among worship attendees, less than half read the Bible daily. The only time most Americans hear from the Bible is when someone else is reading it.” Almost nine out of 10 households (87 percent) own a Bible, according to the American Bible Society, and the average household has three. But Bible reading remains spotty. LifeWay Research surveyed 1,000 Americans about their views of the Bible and found significant splits in how familiar they are with the Christian Scripture. One in five Americans, LifeWay Research found, has read through the Bible at least once.

UPDATE: Massive National Day of Prayer Gathering in South Africa Draws Over 700,000 People
APRIL 26, 2017
Police estimate that 700,000 people showed up to the National Day of Prayer event organized by Angus Buchan in South Africa. On April 22, 2017, thousands of people flooded to a farm in Bloemfontein, located in the nation’s Free State, to pray for South Africa. According to Buchan, the call to prayer came as the result of being “tired of people taking the law into their own hands. We are going to call upon The Lord to bring justice, peace and hope to our beloved South Africa.” Buchan is a farmer-turned-minister who wrote a book about his life and journey to faith, titled Faith Like Potatoes. His Shalom Ministries is concerned with fulfilling the Great Commission, caring for orphans and widows, and equipping the saints for the work of ministry, according to the website.
Organizers for the massive event pulled it together in just six short weeks and estimate that 1 million people were in attendance. Aerial shots of the crowd are certainly impressive. The theme of the event was “It’s Time,” and advertisements for the gathering featured the latter half of James 5:16: “The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.” Bloemfontein is located in the central part of South Africa, but the event drew people from all over the country. According to an article on enca.com, the theme of Buchan’s message was not necessarily a feel-good message. The charismatic preacher challenged attendees to think about bettering their own nation, communities and families before they seek to “save the whole world.”

Floods displace 17,000 after 15 inches of rain in 24 hours in the Dominican Republic
APRIL 26, 2017
Flooding has caused major problems in at least 5 provinces in the Dominican Republic after staggering amounts of rainfall over the last few days. According to the country’s meteorological office (ONAMET), almost 400 mm of rain fell in 24 hours in Barahona between 22 and 23 April, 2017. Further heavy rain has fallen since, mostly in southern areas of the country. In their latest report of 25 April, the Emergency Operations Centre (Centro de Operaciones de Emergencias –
COE) says that flooding has affected several areas in Santo Domingo, San Cristóbal, Monte Plata, Sánchez Ramírez, Duarte and Barahona provinces. Several rivers have overflowed, including the Ozama, Yuna, Cevicos, Manoguayabo and Haina. As many as 3,429 homes have been damaged or affected by the flooding, with around 9 houses completely destroyed. Emergency services and military have rescued 153 people. COE says that 17,145 people have been forced to evacuate their homes. Just over 300 people were being housed in official shelters in San Cristóbal (297) and Barahona (14).

Seattle Breaks 122-Year-Old Record For Rain
APRIL 26, 2017
The wet just won’t quit. Seattle has soaked up 44.67 inches of rain since October 1, according to the National Weather Service. That makes this October-through-April the wettest such period since record-keeping began in the city in 1895 — and there’s still another week of April left to go. The normal amount of rainfall for the October-through-April period in Seattle is 30.9 inches, according to the service. Why has this particular rainy season been so darn rainy? We haven’t seen many of the cold-weather systems that move quickly through the area and into the mountains. Instead, “It’s just been a parade
of frontal systems, juicier and warmer than you might expect. They plow into the area and stall,” said Mike McFarland, a meteorologist in the weather service’s Seattle office. “Not unusually heavy rain — just a lot more rainy days. It’s been a little relentless.” The deluge is Seattle’s second straight record breaker. From October 2015 through April 2016, 44.52 inches of rain dropped on the city, an amount now only good enough for No. 2 on the all-time list.

World’s Largest Jesus Christ Statue to Be Built in Most Populous Muslim Nation
APRIL 26, 2017
Authorities in the Papua region of Indonesia, the world’s most populous Muslim nation, are reportedly planning to build the world’s largest statue of Jesus Christ, which would dwarf the famous “Christ the Redeemer” statue in Brazil. “The statue will be international-class, truly the most magnificent in the world,” said Papua’s Head of Public Works, Djuli Mambaya, Coconuts Jakarta translated on Tuesday from a report in Detik News. The statue, which would be built at the top of Puncak Gunung Swajah in the city of Jayapura, would cost somewhere between $22.6 million to $37.6 million, which is a significant amount of
money for Papua, where 28.5 percent of the population live below the poverty line. Mambaya explained that the Jesus statue would be at least 165 feet tall in height, with a base of 328 feet, which is far larger than Rio De Janeiro’s “Christ the Redeemer,” which is 98 feet tall, though adding in the platform rises to 124 feet. “We will build an elevator in the statue of Jesus Christ, like the one in Jakarta’s Monumen Nasional, in order to see the entire city of Jayapura through the eyes of Jesus,” Mambaya added.

Prayer at Michigan Town Hall Gathering Drowned Out With Shouts of ‘Separation of Church and State’
APRIL 26, 2017
A number of liberal activists wearing pink hats like those donned at the Washington Women’s March recently shouted down a prayer delivered at a town hall gathering in Michigan, chanting repeatedly, “Separation of Church and State!” The incident occurred last Thursday in Gaylord during a meeting held by Republican Rep. Jack Bergman. Derek Hagland of Grace Baptist Church approached the podium to deliver the invocation, but some attendees rose to their feet and began chanting. “Separation of Church and State! Separation of Church and State!” they called out over and over, while others stood or sat quietly, or bowed
their head in respect. Hagland moved forward with his prayer, appearing to ignore those being disruptive. “This guy was giving [an] invocation,” Bergman Communication Director Farahn Morgan told Breitbart News. “He was not necessarily party affiliated in any way. That kind of reaction to him? It was the most aggressive that the crowd got during the entire event which was, quite honestly, shocking.” The chanting lasted the duration of the prayer as an attendee swept the crowd with their camera, capturing those heckling the invocation.

Third of Europeans ready to dump cash ahead of digital future
APRIL 26, 2017
Over a third of Europeans would be happy to abandon cash and rely on electronic payments if they could, according to a study by ING bank released on Wednesday. The survey of almost 15,000 respondents showed that over half used less cash over the last year, with 78 percent wanting to use less cash in the next 12 month. The study covered respondents from 13 European countries and revealed that in many places where cash is most used, people are among the keenest to get rid of it. With the rapid development of cashless payment systems such as contactless cards and mobile-phone digital wallets as well as the expansion of
digital currencies, the future of physical money has come under the spotlight. The increasing interest of central banks in new cashless schemes has promoted the trend. “A cashless society is not only possible but could be accepted by at least part of the population in many European nations,” said the researchers led by senior economist Ian Bright as quoted by Bloomberg. The economist stressed that there’s a “gulf” between those changing payment methods and those who are still sticking with cash.

Atheists Attempting to End Decades Old West Virginia Bible Program
APRIL 26, 2017
A weekly Bible class offered in the public schools of Mercer County, West Virginia is a decades-old tradition. It’s offered during the school day – something that’s unheard of these days – but the program, which gives Bible teaching for 30 minutes a week in elementary school and 45 minutes a week in middle school, has widespread support. It isn’t mandatory but nearly every child attends. Parents and community members raise nearly $500,000 a year to pay for the program.

Now the Bible class is facing a legal challenge. Two residents with school-aged children say the program violates the First Amendment and the West Virginia Constitution. The lawsuit charges that the Bible class, “advances and endorses one religion, improperly entangles public schools in religious affairs, and violates the personal consciences of nonreligious and non-Christian parents and students,” according to a report in The Washington Post. Advocates of the class point out that it’s elective – no one is required to attend.

China Gripped by Spiritual Revival as ‘Hundreds of Millions Turn to Religion and Faith’
APRIL 26, 2017
Forty-one years after China’s Cultural Revolution snuffed out all forms of religious expression, hundreds of millions of Chinese people are flocking to religions like Christianity. Pulitzer Prize-winning author Ian Johnson believes what’s transpiring in China is nothing short of “one of the world’s great spiritual revivals” and says the world better take note because the impact of this “spiritual transformation” could have significant global implications. “People {in China} are looking for new moral guideposts, some sort of moral compass to organize society,” said Johnson, author of The Souls of China: The Return of Religion after Mao. “So they are turning to religion as a source of values to help reorganize society.”
Johnson spent six years researching the “values and faiths of today’s China.” He says the fastest-growing drivers of this “religious revolution” are unregistered churches or so-called “house” or “underground” churches. “These groups have become surprisingly well-organized, meeting very openly and often counting hundreds of congregants,” Johnson wrote in an article for The Atlantic. “They’ve helped the number of Protestants soar from about one million when the communists took power to at least 60 million today.”

MRI scans ‘predict brain age’ could detect risk of early death ..
APRIL 26, 2017
Doctors could soon determine if you are at risk of dying young using an MRI scan. The scans could also be used to spot those who are at risk of poor health, new research has found. A team of neuroscientists in London have trained computers to test the ‘brain age’ of patients based on the volume of their brain tissue. The new test measures the overall loss of grey and white matter – a hallmark of the brain’s ageing process.
Grey matter is a major part of the body’s central nervous system, which helps send messages along the nerves from the brain to the rest of the body. Meanwhile white matter is the tissue that connects the grey matter to different areas of the brain. The new scans are not yet ready for clinical trials, the researchers stressed. But they hope they could one day be used as a tool to identify those at risk of cognitive decline and dying before the age of 80.

Computers ‘could soon delete thoughts without your knowledge’…
APRIL 26, 2017
“Thou canst not touch the freedom of my mind,” wrote the playwright John Milton in 1634. But, nearly 400 years later, technological advances in machines that can read our thoughts mean the privacy of our brain is under threat. Now two biomedical ethicists are calling for the creation of new human rights laws to ensure people are protected, including “the right to cognitive liberty” and “the right to mental integrity”.
Scientists have already developed devices capable of telling whether people are politically right-wing or left-wing. In one experiment, researchers were able to read people’s minds to tell with 70 per cent accuracy whether they planned to add or subtract two numbers. Facebook also recently revealed it had been secretly working on technology to read people’s minds so they could type by just thinking. And medical researchers have managed to connect part of a paralysed man’s brain to a computer to allow him to stimulate muscles in his arm so he could move it and feed himself.

Why is the Google Founder Secretly Building Massive Airship?
APRIL 26, 2017
Larry Page has his flying cars. Sergey Brin shall have an airship. Brin, the Google co-founder, has secretly been building a massive airship inside of Hangar 2 at the NASA Ames Research Center, according to four people with knowledge of the project. It’s unclear whether the craft, which looks like a zeppelin, is a hobby or something Brin hopes to turn into a business. “Sorry, I don’t have anything to say about this topic right now,” Brin wrote in an email. The people familiar with the project said Brin has long been fascinated by airships.
His interest in the crafts started when Brin would visit Ames, which is located next to Google parent Alphabet Inc.’s headquarters in Mountain View, California. In the 1930s, Ames was home to the USS Macon, a huge airship built by the U.S. Navy. About three years ago, Brin decided to build one of his own after ogling old photos of the Macon.In 2015, Google unit Planetary Ventures took over the large hangars at Ames from NASA and turned them into laboratories for the company. Brin’s airship, which isn’t an Alphabet project, is already taking shape inside one. Engineers have constructed a metal skeleton of the craft, and it fills up much of the enormous hangar.

Google steps up efforts to root out Fake News’
APRIL 25, 2017
Google is making changes to its search algorithm to promote more authoritative content and demote “low quality” content such as Holocaust denials. The Internet giant is responding to growing pressure to make sure the top answers it provides to people’s search queries are accurate and do not contribute to the spread of misinformation, conspiracy

theories, hoaxes and offensive content on the Web. People searching Google will be able to more easily flag search results that are “unexpected, inaccurate or offensive,” says Ben Gomes, vice president of engineering for Google Search. And search quality raters have received new guidance on how to spot and report this content, too. A fraction, about 0.25%, of searches returns offensive or misleading content, according to Google.

The Clock Is Ticking on America’s Debt Bomb and It’s About to Speed Up
APRIL 25, 2017
The Federal Reserve is getting ready to raise its target interest rate after allowing it to sit at historically low levels for years. With $20 trillion in national debt, this could be an expensive proposition for Washington and taxpayers. Justin Bogie, a senior policy analyst at the Heritage Foundation, says interest on this debt could eventually cost the United States more than it spends on things like national defense.
“Right now, we’re just a couple percentage of the budget,” he told CBN News. “But by the end of 10 years, it’s going to be over 6 or 7 percent of the budget, almost $770 billion a year, more than national defense,” Bogie noted that government estimates show the national debt could nearly double by 2046. He says there is plenty of blame to go around, beginning with lawmakers on Capitol Hill who have promised to scale back spending but failed to make it happen.

Shake off the Spirit of Python Into the Fire
APRIL 25, 2017
(By Christy Johnston) Have you felt as though you have been easily distracted from your purpose and vision? Have you felt worn out and beaten down in recent months? You started off the year strong, but somewhere along the way it felt as though the wind was knocked from you—either through circumstances or just feeling weary and exhausted with no explanation of why? This accurately describes our own (mine and Nate’s) experience in the past few months. I believe the Holy Spirit led me to the
story in Acts 16:16-40 to give me the right tools for the opposition that has come against us, and I want to share them with you. I believe that many in the body of Christ have been facing resistance from the spirit of Python. Acts 16:16 in The Passion Translation (TPT) tells it like this: “One day, as we were going to the house of prayer, we encountered a young slave girl who had an evil spirit of divination, the spirit of Python. She had earned great profits for her owners by being a fortune-teller.”

Catholics Outraged Kim Kardashain Portraying Herself as the Virgin Mary


APRIL 25, 2017
Many Roman Catholics have been speaking out against reality TV star Kim Kardashian presenting herself as the Virgin Mary in images promoting marijuana. Kardashian posted a number of messages on Instagram and Twitter last week promoting marijuana paraphernalia, along with a white Kimoji candle that bears the image of the reality star depicted as the Virgin Mary. Townhall called it an “absurd move” by Kardashian,
given that in 2015 she had her daughter, North, baptized at St. James Cathedral, an Armenian Apostolic church in Jerusalem. Bill Donohue of The Catholic League noted in an article on CNS News that the Kimoji candle sells for $18 on Kardashian’s website. “It is placed between two other items for sale: a ‘fire weed sock’ and an ‘a– tray;’ the former celebrates marijuana use and the latter is a photo of her bare mammoth behind,” Donohue said.

Air Force to launch test missile off California coast…
APRIL 25, 2017
An unarmed intercontinental ballistic missile will be launched Wednesday from Vandenberg Air Force Base to test the weapon’s effectiveness, accuracy and readiness, according to the Air Force Global Strike Command. The Minuteman III missile test launch will occur between 12:01 and 6:01 a.m. from the north end of the base near Lompoc, according to Vandenberg’s 30th Space Wing.
The 576th Flight Test Squadron, which will help oversee the operational test launch, is responsible for telemetry, tracking and command destruct systems on the missile. In a statement, Col. Chris Moss, Vandenberg’s 30th Space Wing commander, said missile launches are “essential to verify the status of our national nuclear force and to demonstrate our national nuclear capabilities.”

Mysterious Noise Heard Across the Globe for Nearly a Decade – Still No Explanation
APRIL 25, 2017
A mysterious and unexplainable noise has been heard and reported across the globe for nearly a decade now and to this day no one can explain what or where it is coming from. Sounding like a trumpet or a collective from a brass section of an orchestra, a selection of videos shot from the Canada to Ukraine, via the U.S., Germany and Belarus show strange goings on above us. And the eerie sounds have been continuously heard at all different times and locations for almost a decade.
What people are speculating the sounds are online… Possible theories include:
Tectonic plates grinding – Tectonic plates are pieces of the Earth’s crust and uppermost mantle, together referred to as the lithosphere. The plates are around 100 km (62 mi) thick and consist of two principal types of material: oceanic crust (also called sima from silicon and magnesium) and continental crust (sial from silicon and aluminium).

China bans certain Islamic names in Muslim-dominated region of Xinjiang
APRIL 25, 2017
Chinese authorities have released a list of some common Muslim names used in Xinjiang region that are forbidden to use for newborns from now on, according to Radio Free Asia report. Twenty-nine names, which are commonly used by the predominantly-Muslim Uighur population of the northwestern region, were featured in the document, entitled ‘Naming Rules for Ethnic Minorities’ and issued last Wednesday, according to Channel NewsAsia.
Names with strong religious meanings like Islam, Koran, Mecca, Imam, Saddam, Hajj, and Medina, as well as names that have “connotations of holy war [Jihad] or of splittism [sic – Xinjiang independence]” are included in the list, Radio Free Asia (RFA) reports, citing a police official. However, more neutral names are still allowed. If parents break the ruling, their children won’t be registered in the government household system known as ‘hukou’, which provides access to social services, like healthcare and education, the official added speaking to RFA.

Germany’s Speech Police Target Truth, Spawning Cold War Flashbacks
APRIL 25, 2017
The Stasi Museum in Berlin is a monument to the ultimate surveillance society. It is housed in the old Stasi headquarters. The Stasi were the state police of communist East Germany whose job was to spy on the population. On display is every type of spy gadget imaginable for a pre-Internet era. One in six East Germans were either full-time spies or informers for the Stasi, watching their neighbors. When the Berlin Wall fell in 1989 and East Germany collapsed, East Germans looked

forward to living in freedom. But now, some are beginning to wonder just how free the new Germany is. Last year a married couple was convicted for creating a Facebook group that criticized the government’s open-door migration policy. At the trial, the man complained that Germans cannot be critical of refugees without getting labeled ‘Nazi.’ And 60 others accused of writing so-called hate speech online had their homes raided by police.

America Is Unraveling And We Must Return to ‘In God We Trust’
APRIL 25, 2017
Evangelist Anne Graham Lotz has warned that the United States is “disintegrating into anger, anarchy, division” because of its “rejection of God.” The daughter of evangelist Billy Graham and founder of AnGeL Ministries told the Biblical Recorder in an interview that prayer is America’s answer. “We need God. Our nation is unraveling …The polarization seems to be paralyzing our government. There seems to be little civil discourse and lots of chaos and confusion. At the

same time, we are being threatened by terrorists who are dedicated to destroying us,” Lotz said. “God has promised to hear us, forgive us and heal us on the condition that we pray. Therefore prayer is essential. It is not an option, it is a necessity,” she added. Last year Lotz became the chairman for the National Day of Prayer Task Force (NDP), and she was asked whether the organization pushes nationalism over Christian ideals.

Iran Violating Nuclear Deal with Secret Development Near ‘Off-Limits’ Parchin Site
APRIL 25, 2017
On Friday, members of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) presented satellite imagery and intelligence, said to be provided by informants working covertly inside the Iranian military, that indicates the Iranian regime is far from complying with the terms of the nuclear deal. Alireza Jafarzadeh, the deputy director of NCRI’s Washington office, presented the findings in a presentation covered by major media outlets. He said the People’s Mojahedin Organization’s network within Iran acquired the information.
“We are talking about an extensive covert operation by the Iranian regime,” Jafarzadeh said. “Our information shows that their activities have been continuing in full gear despite the JCPOA,” he said using the acronym for the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, the formal name for the nuclear deal. “The engineering unit that is charged and tasked with actually building the bomb in a secret way for the Iranian regime is called the Organization of Defensive Innovation and Research,” Jafarzadeh said.

SIGNS IN THE HEAVENS: Strange and New Aurora Phenomenon Fascinates Scientists
APRIL 24, 2017
Meet “Steve,” a strange, new aurora feature discovered by citizen scientists and verified by the European Space Agency’s (ESA) Swarm satellites. Eric Donovan, a researcher at University of Calgary in Canada, first heard of “Steve” while talking to members of a Facebook group called the Alberta Aurora Chasers, who coordinate to track and photograph the northern lights in the Canadian sky (Alberta is a province in western Canada).
While the colorful lights of an aurora normally ripple horizontally across the sky, Steve formed a distinctive purplish or greenish vertical streak. To learn more about it, Donovan coordinated with the Facebook group to match sightings of the feature with data from the Swarm satellites, which measure Earth’s magnetic field, and ground-based scientific cameras that monitor the sky.

GREAT DECEPTION – UFO Sightings Increasing Worldwide
APRIL 24, 2017
Why have sightings of unidentified flying objects around the nation more than tripled since 2001? Why is July the busiest month for U.F.O. sightings? Why did they spike in Texas in 2008, or in New Mexico in September 2015? And how in the world, or out of it, has Manhattan racked up New York State’s second-highest tally of U.F.O. sightings in this century? These questions and many others emerge from the first comprehensive statistical summary of so-called close encounters:
121,036 eyewitness accounts, organized county by county in each state and the District of Columbia, from 2001 to 2015. The unlikely compendium, “U.F.O. Sightings Desk Reference,” is the work of a couple in Syracuse, who crunched unruly data on U.F.O. reports collected by two volunteer organizations: the Mutual U.F.O. Network, or Mufon, and the National U.F.O. Reporting Center, or Nuforc.

Anglican Revolt as Church of England Softens on Homosexuality
APRIL 24, 2017
Conservative African and Asian Anglican church leaders are reportedly ready to put forth their own bishop in the Church of England in defiance of Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby, who they believe is softening on gay marriage. According to The Mail, conservative bishops believe the CofE is becoming too liberal on the subject of homosexuality, and are threatening to take the “nuclear option” when it comes to electing their own bishop in the U.K.
The article cited “insiders” who revealed that the matter will be decided at a meeting in Africa, which would represent a direct challenge to Welby’s authority as nominal head of Anglicans worldwide. While Welby has maintained that he continues to back the traditional definition of marriage, which is between one man and one woman, he has made several statements suggesting support for gay couples in recent years.

Pastor Confronted by Satanist Outside Planned Parenthood Facility
APRIL 24, 2017
A group of pro-life Christians gathered outside a Planned Parenthood facility in Arizona recently only to be met by a cowbell wielding Planned Parenthood ‘escort’ in what can only be described as a truly bizarre scene. The man in the video is Jeff Durbin, who the NY Post recently smeared as an ‘extremist’ hipster pastor, and he regularly stands in front of

Planned Parenthood facilities in hopes of convincing women not to go through with potential abortions. While he attempts to have rational conversations, he’s often met with uncontrollable rage, as was the case in this particular video. He pleads with her to have a coherent conversation, to which she replies with vulgarity and more cowbell. “I have the ability to engage, but I don’t engage with crazy,” she said, before launching into expletives.

God’s Perfect Method for Shredding Your Idols
APRIL 24, 2017
(By Eric Tokajer) Just imagine if you were the bride at a wedding, and the groom went to a private room to discuss the details of the service. The meeting goes a little longer than expected, and when the groom returns, the bride has married the best man, and all of the guests are celebrating in the reception. Think about what would be going through the groom’s mind at the moment he arrived in the reception hall. The swirl of hurt, anger and emotional turmoil he would be experiencing all at once. The groom confronts the bride, who responds with the words
“You took longer than we thought you would, so in fear, I decided to marry the best man today. But don’t worry; we will celebrate tomorrow as if it was our wedding that took place.” This is almost exactly the event that took place in Exodus 32: Now when the people saw that Moses delayed coming down from the mountain, the people gathered themselves together around Aaron and said to him, “Come, make us gods which will go before us. As for this Moses, the man who brought us up out of the land of Egypt, we do not know what has become of him.”

UNRAVELING: Violent Protests Grip Paris After Election Results
APRIL 24, 2017
Police detained 29 people in Paris on Sunday after “anti-fascist” demonstrators became violent – hurling glass bottles and firecrackers and setting cars ablaze.Six officers and three demonstrators were injured during the protests at the Place de la Bastille. Several businesses sustained damage, Agence-France Presse reported. At least three people were arrested.Many of the left-wing protesters said they were angry at the first-round results of the presidential election in
which centrist Emmanuel Macron and far-right leader Marine Le Pen emerged as the two top vote getters. “We have come here to protest against the pantomime of this election,” a protester told AFP. After the results came in, protesters who gathered at the square waved red flags and sang “No Marine and No Macron!” among other chants, The Telegraph reported. Nearby, about 300 peaceful demonstrators gathered at Place de la Republique to condemn the election results. Several danced around bonfires.

Dutch city allows pro-Hamas event, bans counter-protest
By Pamela Geller - on April 25, 2017
ISLAMIC JEW HATRED
This is the norming of Islamic Jew-hatred. The Netherlands, and Europe in general, has chosen its future: one of darkness, slavery, and civil strife.

“Dutch city allows pro-Hamas event, bans counter-protest,” JTA, April 18, 2017:

AMSTERDAM (JTA) — In an unusual rebuke, Israel’s embassy in the Netherlands expressed “great concern” over the hosting in Rotterdam of an event organized by Hamas supporters.

The embassy published the statement Friday ahead of Saturday’s gathering of several hundred people at a conference titled “Palestinians in Europe,” which the embassy said was a front for Hamas.

Authorities had denied a request by pro-Israel activists to march in Rotterdam Saturday in protest of the gathering, which was organized by the Palestinian Return Center, or PRC, Het Paroool daily reported.

Israel outlawed PRC for its alleged affiliations with Hamas in 2010. A 2011 report by the German Ministry of the Interior stated that ““Hamas does not operate openly in Europe. Instead it uses, for instance, the Palestinian Return Center in London as a forum.”

The European Union blacklisted Hamas and regards it as an illegal terrorist group.

Rotterdam Mayor Ahmed Aboutaleb, a Labor politician who was born in Morocco to a Muslim family and has spoken harshly against anti-Semitism, declined requests by representatives of the Jewish community to ban the gathering. He said the Dutch National Coordination Board for Counterterrorism and Security authorized the event, though a board spokesperson denied this.

Noting Israel’s concern over the gathering, the embassy’s statement also addressed the rejection of the application for the march submitted by the Christians for Israel group. “At the same time, the silent march in Rotterdam, which is the least one can and should do against those who preach hate, extremism and terror, was not allowed to take place,” the embassy wrote….

Among the speakers at the PRC conference was Dyab Abou Jahjah, a Lebanon-born activist from Belgium whom a leading daily recently fired allegedly for calling for violent attacks on Jewish Israelis. He wrote on Twitter: “by any means necessary,” in reference to an attack in which a Palestinian terrorist plowed a truck through a crowd of soldiers visiting a popular tourist spot in Jerusalem.

Jahjah — who after the 9/11 attacks of 2001 in New York spoke of his “feeling of victory” and who has called the heavily Jewish-populated city of Antwerp the “international capital of the Zionist lobby” — reiterated at the conference the statement that got him fired.
“I know there are officers of justice in the room, waiting to write down things. Let me tell you from now on: I have no problem supporting the Palestinian resistance against occupation by any means necessary,” Jahjah said, as hundreds of listeners applauded.

White House Prayer Sessions Bring God Into Governance

Since the beginning of the White House transition in January, members of President Donald Trump’s cabinet have been gathering for weekly prayer sessions led by Capitol Ministries Pastor Ralph Drollinger. Though religion has always been part of the White House, these sessions include an impressive number of the highest-ranking members of the Trump Administration.
Capitol Ministries provides Bible studies, evangelism and discipleship to political leaders in over 40 US state capitols. The ministry also hosts separate weekly Bible studies in the House and Senate.
“In terms of a country’s health and direction, when its leaders are seeking God, the nation is in a position to be blessed by God,” Drollinger told CBN News.

Though not personally observant, Trump was blessed several times by pastors and rabbis during his presidential campaign. He has yet to attend the weekly prayer sessions but last month, he held a group moment prayer after he announced the nomination of Judge Neil Gorsuch for the Supreme Court.

Trump Cabinet Members Praying and Studying the Bible Together
APRIL 24, 2017
Members of President Donald Trump’s cabinet are gathering for prayer weekly. Vice President Mike Pence and eight cabinet secretaries sponsor the sessions, which occur weekly in Washington. It’s led by the founder of Capitol Ministries, Ralph Drollinger, who started working on arranging the Bible study during the Trump team’s transition to the White House. Sponsors include Vice President Pence; Secretaries Betsy DeVos, Ben Carson, Sonny Perdue, Rick Perry, Tom
Price and Jeff Sessions; EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt and CIA Director Mike Pompeo. These are some of the most influential people in the U.S. government gathering weekly to grow themselves spiritually.”In terms of a country’s health and direction, when its leaders are seeking God, the nation is in a position to be blessed by God in ways that are ‘far more abundantly beyond all that we ask or think,'” Drollinger tells Beltway Buzz referring to Ephesians 3:20.

Implants will unlock some hidden human potential – or do irreparable damage to our existence
APRIL 23, 2017
Scifi writer Jon Wallace considers whether implants will unlock some hidden human potential – or do irreparable damage to our existence Last month, The Engineer reported on progress towards bionic eye implants. An array of silicon nanowires arranged in an electrode grid, implanted behind the retina and linked to a wireless device, has potential to restore sight. Once again engineering news astounds and delights – the scifi eye given life. Technological implants play a solid role in science fiction as a crucial component of the idea of the ‘transhuman’: that is, an evolutionary
leap that sees mankind combine with technology to alter its perception and abilities.Interest in implants tends particularly towards the neural interface: as science has come to understand consciousness as more a product of the brain’s complex functions (as opposed to the awareness granted an immortal soul), so science fiction has explored the fascinating prospect of tampering with our brain’s computing.

Man Who Identifies as Woman Sues State of Idaho Over Refusal to Change Birth Certificate
APRIL 23, 2017
A man who identifies as a woman has filed a lawsuit against the state of Idaho over its refusal to change his birth certificate from male to female. The 28-year-old man, who is only being identified as F.V., was born in Idaho but now lives in Hawaii. According to the complaint filed on Tuesday, F.V. has had his name changed on his driver’s license, passport and social security records, and would like to have his birth certificate changed as well.
“On March 21, 2017, F.V. contacted Idaho’s Bureau of Vital Records and Health Statistics to inquire if [he] could change the gender marker on [his] birth certificate. [He] was informed by staff that [he] could not do so,” the legal challenge, filed by Lambda Legal, reads. As there is no law regarding the matter in Idaho, it is believed that F.V.’s request for an amended birth certificate was declined because state representatives felt that they lacked the legal authority to reissue the document.

11 Facts That Prove That The U.S. Economy In 2017 Is In Far Worse Shape Than It Was In 2016
APRIL 23, 2017
(Reported By Michael Snyder) There is much debate about where the U.S. economy is ultimately heading, but what everybody should be able to agree on is that economic conditions are significantly worse this year than they were last year. It is being projected that U.S. economic growth for the first quarter will be close to zero, thousands of retail stores are closing, factory output is falling, and restaurants and automakers have both fallen on very hard times.
As economic activity has slowed down, commercial and consumer bankruptcies are both rising at rates that we have not seen since the last financial crisis. Everywhere you look there are echoes of 2008, and yet most people still seem to be in denial about what is happening. The following are 11 facts that prove that the U.S. economy in 2017 is in far worse shape than it was in 2016…

Americans Drowning in Trillion Dollars of Credit Card Debt
APRIL 23, 2017
Rising credit card interest rates are pushing Americans deeper into a long-term debt trap. Americans now owe $1 trillion in credit card debt, with an average monthly balance of about $9,600 for borrowers who don’t pay their cards in full each month. A year ago, a credit card holder making only minimum payments shelled out about $1,185 in annual interest, on
average, said Ben Woolsey of CreditCards.com. After three quarter-point hikes by the Federal Reserve — a cost that banks pass on almost immediately to card holders — credit card borrowers are now forking over $1,254, or $69 more a year, in interest, on average.Two more rate hikes are on the table for 2017, which would bring the total to $1,301, or $116 a year in interest.

3.7 magnitude earthquake strikes Colorado with tremors felt 200 miles away
APRIL 23, 2017
A 3.7 magnitude earthquake struck northwestern Colorado late Saturday morning at 11:48 a.m. MDT. The rumbling sounded like an explosion. Everything was rattling even 200 miles away. Must have been pretty scary. The temblor hit at 11:48 a.m. MDT about three miles west-northwest of the town of Rangely, in Blanco County. It had a depth of approximately 4 miles.
The quake was felt by several people, including Rangely Police Department Dispatcher Miranda Hayes, who explains her scary experience: “It sounded like an explosion. Everything in the building was shaking, cabinets and equipment was rattling. It was pretty scary.” But it wasn’t just felt in Colorado.

Twin earthquakes shake western Turkey
APRIL 23, 2017
Two mid-size earthquakes, 200 km away and 1 hour apart, shook western Turkey causing widespread anxiety. Some 100 km away from the closest shock, In Izmir, the country’s third-largest city, many people ran outside. Although construction quality has improved over the years, many people are unsure about the strength of their buildings. People who feel an earthquake should drop, cover and hold on to protect themselves from falling objects, as the majority of the
earthquake injuries are caused by falling objects and not from collapsed buildings. In general, people are advised not enter damaged buildings until authorities check their safety.Earthquakes are common in this part of the world as many of the natural beauties of the Turkish riviera such as valleys and coves are brought by the faults. Paired up with a great climate, this terrain made Turkey the 6th most visited country in the world.

‘Socially Accepted But Immoral Lifestyles’ In The Church Will Be Exposed And ‘Judgment Starts Now’
APRIL 23, 2017
(Reported By Michael Snyder) Judgment begins in the House of God, and those that are playing around with sin need to stop before it is too late. In recent weeks, I have been writing much about the prophetic voices that have been warning about the “exposure” and the “great shaking” that are coming to the Church. If you choose to put yourself out there as a minister of the gospel of Jesus Christ, you can’t embrace great sin and expect that there won’t be any consequences. Our God is a holy and awesome
God, and the only way that any of us are going to make it through what is coming is to live in holiness. The Scriptures tell us that the fear of God is the beginning of wisdom, and there isn’t a lot of the fear of God in our churches today, but there will be soon. The first prophecy that I want to share with you today comes from Pastor James Durham. If you are not familiar with the incredible career of Pastor James Durham, the following is a short bio that comes directly from his website…

There were no immediate reports of damage or casualties, it said. READ MORE http://endtimeheadlines.org/2017/04/breaking-news-powerful-magnitude-6-9-earthquake-strikes-chile/

Most First-Time Visitors Decide if They’ll Return to Your Church in the First 10 Minutes
APRIL 23, 2017
(By Carey Nieuwhof) It’s hard to believe, but according to people who study these things, first-time guests to your church make up their minds whether they’re coming back or not in the first 10 minutes of their visit. Think about that. Before they hear the first note of music, before they hear the first word of a sermon or before anyone stands up and says “welcome” in the service, most first-time guests have already made a conscious or subconscious decision about whether they’re coming back.
What might be hanging in the balance is someone’s opportunity to embrace Jesus. Recently, on Episode 132 of my Leadership Podcast, I had a far-ranging conversation on a guest’s first 10 minutes at a church with Greg Atkinson, author of Secrets of a Secret Church Shopper.

65 Test Positive for TB at Texas Border Senior Center
APRIL 23, 2017
An uncomfortably high number of positive tests results for tuberculosis came back to a west Texas border senior day care center, putting city health officials on alert as they monitor the cases to see if any show signs of active TB. The City of El Paso Department of Public Health confirmed Wednesday that 65 TB tests came back positive following the preliminary testing of 199 individuals in April.
The health department began testing people at a local adult day care after one person in the center’s care tested positive for the sometimes fatal pulmonary disease. The venue where the swarm of positive TB diagnoses occurred is the La Victoria Adult Day Care Center, according to the El Paso Times. Officials believe all those tested may have had contact with patient zero. However, officials remain vigilant. More center members and workers could have been exposed to the bacteria.

Harvard Guide Says Gender Can ‘Change From Day to Day’
APRIL 23, 2017
The office of BGLTQ Student Life at Harvard University has released a guide that says for some people, gender identity can “change from day to day.” The school-sponsored flier, which was distributed to students on the elite Ivy League campus, said for some “gender is fluid and changing,” and it “can be affirmed and/or expressed in many ways.” “Transphobic misinformation is a form of systemic violence,”
the document goes on to state. “Fixed binaries and biological essentialism, manifest in gendered language, misgendering someone, and the policing of trans bodies, threaten the lives of trans people.” On “Fox & Friends Weekend” this morning, conservative millennial blogger Allie Stuckey said Harvard is supposed to be a bastion of intelligent and productive discourse, and this guide stands in direct opposition to that.

UPDATE: Muslim Man Charged After Revealing Guns Outside Christian Conference
APRIL 23, 2017
It now appears that charges have been made! On April 21 South Dakota State Attorney General Marty Jackley announced charges of terrorism threats against Ehab Jaber. The Capital-Journal reports that the charges represent “a Class 5 felony with a maximum sentence of five years.” In a Facebook Live video allegedly filmed in a car outside a Christian conference in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, a Muslim man identified as Ehab Jaber brandishes numerous guns and warns people to “be scared.”
The video was republished by the New York Post. In it, Jaber can be seen pulling a pistol from his vehicle’s console, another from a holster on his waist, and yet another from down near his feet (or an ankle holster). He eventually reaches behind the driver’s seat to grab AK and AR-style rifles. He appears to hold up numerous magazines for the rifles while saying, “That’s how I travel. That’s how I ***** travel.” He talks as he grabs the guns, saying, “Be scared,” and, “Be f*cking terrified,” as he holds the guns up.

Evangelicals and Pentecostals Are More Likely Than Other Christians to Be Persecuted
APRIL 25, 2017
Evangelicals and Pentecostal Christians are most at risk among persecuted Christians in part because of their zeal to evangelize, a new study shows. Key findings of “In Response to Persecution,” a new study of Notre Dame’s Under Caesar’s Sword project, were revealed Thursday at the National Press Club where panelists mentioned several times during a discussion that evangelicals and Pentecostals are targeted for persecution more intensely than mainline, Catholic, and Orthodox believers for several reasons.

In many nations, the report reads, “evangelicals and Pentecostals are comparatively recent arrivals and thus have not established patterns relating to surrounding populations and government to the same degree with churches with centuries of history in a given region.” They are also perceived as being supported by like-minded believers in the West, the research finds.
