Justin Bieber shares a photo of walking in handcuffs as a testimony of how far God has brought him

In a recent post to his over 160 million followers on Instagram, international pop star, Justin Bieber, shared a photo of an incident that took place seven years ago as the police led the pop star away in handcuffs. He had just been arrested in Florida on Jan 23, 2014, for driving under the influence and with an invalid license. In his post, Bieber simply shared how far God has brought him since those early days when he was constantly having run-ins with the law. Bieber wrote: “7 years ago today I got was arrested, not my finest hour. “Not proud of where I was at in my life. I was hurting, unhappy, confused, angry, mislead, misunderstood and angry at God. “I also wore too much leather for someone in Miami. “All this to say God has brought me a long way. From then til now I do realize something.. God was as close to me then as he is right now. “My encouragement to you is to ‘let your past be a reminder of …

How to manufacture a pandemic, $500 at a time

It seems that some bureaucrats are determined to keep this COVID pandemic going on forever. Why? Well, they are not affected. They often get to work from home, still get their paychecks, benefits and pensions, so, what do they care about the people suffering from the lockdowns. But one of the problems with pandemics is you need numbers. How can you extend and embrace more severe lockdowns, if the COVID numbers are starting to fall, as they are recently doing in Britain? READ: Britain’s coronavirus cases fall again amid ‘scaremongering’ row The solution: there are a bunches of people out there who are coming down with COVID, but are not getting sick. Many show no symptoms and if they do the symptoms are so minor they are confusing them with a cold or allergies. Of course, as a result, they are not getting tested. It is estimated that as many as 80% of the people fall into the asymptomatic category. And here is the thing, the chances of asymptomatic people spreading COVID is extremely low. …

Canada’s sick political system

There is something deeply sick about a political system when a person can work three and a half years for the government and walk away with a $143,000 year pension for life. That is what happened when Canada’s Governor General, Julie Payette, was forced to resign after a report was about to be released that she was had created a “toxic” work environment in her brief tenure as Canada’s Governor General.

750 people slaughtered at church alleged to hold the Ark of the Covenant

According to Europe External Programme with Africa, a Belgium NGO, the Maryam Tsiyon Church in Axum, Ethiopia was recently attacked by a group made up of soldiers with the Ethiopian army and members of the militant Amhara militia who slaughtered 750 members of the congregation. Amhara is a brutal terrorist organization that has been responsible for several massacres in Ethiopia in recent years. Several eyewitnesses reported at least a thousand people were hiding inside the church when the armed group arrived. Hundreds of people were dragged from the cathedral and shot. For decades, the overseers of the Maryam Tsiyon, also referred to as the Church of Our Lady Mary of Zion, have claimed that they have the Jewish Ark of the Covenant. Apparently, members of the congregation went to the church believing the militia intended to steal the Ark. But reports suggest the leaders of the church had hidden the ark before the militants arrived. The Ark of the Covenant is housed in the Chapel of Tablet beside the main Cathedral and only one of …

The Discovery of an ancient description, ‘Christ, born of Mary,’ hints to an earlier battle with heresy

Israeli archaeologists working in the Jezreel Valley recently announced that they found an ancient description of Jesus dated to the fifth century. It was found in the remains of a Byzantine Church located near the village of et-Taiyiba. Curiously, the phrase, “Christ, born of Mary,” may hint of a great theological battle that raged in the early church a couple of centuries earlier. The Greek inscription, that was carved on stone and appeared on top of the entrance, reads in full: “Christ, born of Mary. This work of the most God-fearing and pious bishop [Theodo]sius and the miserable Th[omas] was built from the foundation… Whoever enters should pray for them.” According to Dr. Leah Di-Segni who works at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem the phrase “Christ, born of Mary” was used by the people to ward off curses associated with an evil eye. As part of this, people often included this phrase in letters they were sending to friends. One of the persons mentioned in the greeting was Theodosius, the archbishop for the area around …

Portland: Antifa peacefully celebrates Biden’s inauguration

A few hours after Joe Biden was inaugurated as President of the United States, Antifa and other left wing anarchists took to the streets of Portland celebrating the change of government. Sure they may have gotten a bit carried away and set fire to a few businesses. Sure they may have accidentally smashed some windows at the Democrat headquarters in the city, but it was part of the joyous and of course peaceful celebration. Thankfully, they were all wearing masks.

People fleeing lockdown oppression?

According to a recent report by one of America’s largest moving companies, United Van Lines, South Dakota has seen a large influx of people moving into the state. Of course, South Dakota’s Republican Governor, Kristi Noem, was one of the few state leaders that did not implement an oppressive Covid-1984 style lockdown. People still had their freedom and jobs.

Enforcing religious freedom in Moscow, Russia, err Idaho

A court has just ruled in favour of Gabriel Rench who was arrested on Sept 23, 2020, when nearly 200 believers gathered to worship and praise God during an outdoor service in the parking lot of the city hall in Moscow, Idaho. The event, called Psalm Sing, was sponsored by Christ Church and according to Gabriel Rench, who serves as a church deacon, they had been holding services for several months with no problem. The church believed its right to worship is guaranteed under the US Constitution. But the Sept. 23 service would prove to be different. Police were in attendance and arrested three people including Gabriel Rench as the group was singing “Praise God from Whom All Blessings Flow.” Though they were not wearing masks, neither were most of the people attending the service. The police had arrested the three for violating the mayor’s emergency health order. But according to Michael Jacques, a lawyer with the Thomas Moore Society who represented Rench, under this legislation, the city exempted “[a]ny and all expressive and associative …

Ironically, doing good to others, is good for you

Most have heard of Jesus’ story of the Good Samaritan who provided aid to a man who had been mugged by robbers and left for dead by the side of a road (Luke 10:25-37). And while he provided both medicinal and financial aid to the fallen man, studies have shown that people who are kind or help others may also be helping themselves. This was the conclusion of a Canadian study that revealed helping others may lead to better health for the person doing the helping. The study involved several students who were asked to tutor elementary students for two months. In the study the students were broken up into two groups, one group actually tutored the students and the second group were put on a waiting list and never tutored any of the elementary students. Then four months after the tutoring assignment has run its course, the researchers ran blood tests to find out if there was any noticeable differences between the two groups. They discovered that students who had actually done tutoring had …

Children suicides & self-harm skyrocket during lockdown, Italy

A report out of Italy reveals that there has been an alarming spike in suicide attempts not only among teens, but children as well, because of the lockdowns. Along with this, hospitals are also reporting a dramatic increase in incidents of self-harm, where children are purposefully cutting and burning themselves. Doctors are also reporting an alarming increase in mental health disorders and are laying the blame for these increases squarely on the lockdowns.

Some COVID good news, for a change

There may be some good news on the COVID front as an Israeli doctor reports that the second jab from the Pfzer vaccine is so effective, he wonders if it will not only prevent people from getting sick, but may actually increase a person’s immunity so much it prevents them from spreading the virus. The Daily Mail explains: Pfizer‘s Covid vaccine could produce a strong enough immune response to stop people who get the jab from spreading the coronavirus, a doctor in Israel has claimed. Researchers found in a small study that recipients of the jab developed up to 20 times more antibodies within a week of having the second dose of the jab. Higher levels of antibodies likely lead to a stronger immune response which could clear the virus before someone has a chance to spread it, but this is still not proven. Until now, scientists didn’t know whether vaccines would stop transmission and were banking only on it preventing severe illness and death. Pfizer itself has not published any data showing how the jab …

Do trucks glorify violence and domination?

I have often stated that everyone, whether they believe in God or not, should be on their knees thanking God every night before they go to bed that city politicians are not running their country. Case in point: A left-wing politician in the Canadian city of Vancouver recently went on a rant claiming that anyone who owns a pick-up truck is complicit in the “glorification of violence and domination.”

Have the lockdowns gone to the dogs?

I can’t explain why dogs are suddenly becoming the theme for the 2021 lockdowns. I previously reported how the Canadian province of Quebec implemented a curfew preventing people from leaving their homes after 8 pm, unless they are taking their dog for a walk. Apparently, dogs protect people from COVID after 8 pm. And continuing with the dog theme, a factory in France is now requiring that its workers wear dog collars.
