Does the Brooklyn Papyrus help confirm the Exodus story?

There is growing evidence that Israel’s exodus out of Egypt did not take place under Pharaoh Ramesses who ruled Egypt between 1279 -1213 BC as many traditionally believed, but actually took place a couple of hundred years earlier. It coincided with the time when the Egyptians were finally able to drive the Hyksos out of Egypt around 1550 BC. The Hyksos, a Semitic tribe, had invaded the northern half of the Nile Delta around 1800 BC, driving the Egyptian government south. And there is convincing evidence that Joseph and his family had settled in Egypt during the Hyksos rule after Joseph rose to power (Genesis 41:41). Of course, being Semitic, Joseph had a similar language and culture to the Hyksos which partially explains why he so quickly rose to second in command in Egypt after God anointed him. But that changed when Egyptian Pharaoh Ahmose I was able to drive the Hyksos out of Northern Egypt in 1550. The Bible describes him as the new king who ominously did not know Joseph (Exodus 1:8). Pharaoh …

Was California church shooting politically motivated?

Officials are now alleging that the shooting that took place in California at Irvine Taiwanese Presbyterian Church on Sunday, May 15, 2022, that left one dead and four wounded, may have been a politically-motivated hate crime. The members of the Presbyterian church were from Taiwan, an island off the coast of China that the country’s communist overlords claim belongs to China. It’s alleged that the shooter was from mainline China. The Orange Country Register reports: The man accused of killing one and injuring four others with gunfire inside a Laguna Woods church on Sunday while a Taiwanese Presbyterian group was meeting was motivated by tensions between the People’s Republic of China and Taiwan, Orange County’s sheriff said. David Wenwei Chou, a 68-year-old Las Vegas resident, lived in the United States for decades after immigrating here from China. He is a United States citizen, although his wife and a son do not live in the U.S. … Detectives found evidence that Chou “was upset about political tensions between China and Taiwan,” Sheriff Don Barnes said, including …

Poll: How many pastors have a Biblical worldview?

A recent poll conducted by George Barna found that only 37% of America’s pastors/church leaders hold a Biblical worldview. Now to be fair some of the 1,000 church leaders surveyed undoubtedly included Liberal churches, where they even allow atheists to pastor a church. Nevertheless, George Barna, who heads Arizona Christian University’s Cultural Research Center, stated the survey revealed that our secular culture is having a shocking impact on the beliefs of Christian leaders. The survey asked the opinions of church leaders in eight categories and in only one did the majority reflect a Biblical worldview, where 57% help a Biblical opinion on purpose and calling. However, it was not the same for the remainder of the questions, where only a minority of pastors and church leaders held a Biblical worldview on the issue: 47% held a Biblical worldview when it came to Family, Value of Life. Undoubtedly this included their opinions on abortion; 44% held a Biblical worldview when it came to God, Creation, History. This would suggest they question the Genesis account; 43% held …

McDonald’s offering a chance to win a tarot card?

CBN is reporting that McDonald’s restaurants in the US are giving people a chance to win a tarot card if they use the McDonald’s app to purchase fries. CBN explains: In an unfortunate infusion of occultism, customers using the McDonald’s app to buy a medium order of fries were given a free McDouble or McChicken and the chance to snag a tarot card reading. McDonald’s reportedly partnered with Madam Adam, a tarot card reader with expertise in astrology, to offer readings to select customers. To “win,” customers reportedly needed to go to Madam Adam’s Instagram or TikTok posts to share their Zodiac sign and name. Apparently, the offer coincided with the appearance of the Mercury retrograde, which gives the optical illusion that Mercury is going backwards. According to astrologers, this event can cause people to go through difficult times on earth.

Study: Parts of the Antarctic ice cap are growing, not shrinking

Researchers from Cambridge University, Newcastle University, and New Zealand’s University of Canterbury are certain to send off alarm bells in the man-made global warming industrial complex (MMGWIC). One of the big fears being promoted by the MMGWIC is that if we don’t stop man-made global warming is that all the coastal cities will simply be washed away by the rising oceans. So it was particularly disturbing when this group of scientists stated that between 2003/4 to 2019, the ice pack on the western side of the Antarctic has actually been increasing. Growing. The Western Antarctic has about 1,400 km of shoreline. And this isn’t even the first time this has been reported. Back in 2015, NASA reported the exact same thing was happening. Though the ice pack on the eastern side of the Antarctic was shrinking, the ice pack on the western side was growing. In fact, the west’s growth was faster than the eastern, so overall the Antarctic ice pack was growing, not shrinking. READ: NASA Study: Mass gains of Antarctic Ice Sheet greater …

Marijuana usage linked to common heart disease

According to a recent study published in the American Journal of the Medical Sciences, marijuana usage can lead to increased instances of coronary artery disease (CAD) caused by the build-up of plaque in a person’s arteries. Researchers said that with the increasing acceptance of Marijuana, their study “emphasizes the potential harmful effects of cannabis use on cardiovascular health and highlights the need for further research as it (cannabis) becomes more accepted at both a national and global level.” According to the National Post: U.S. researchers have found that cannabis use is associated with prevalent coronary artery disease (CAD), the most common cardiovascular disease in the U.S., Canada and some other industrialized countries around the world. Specifically, ever versus never cannabis users had 90 per cent increased odds of CAD, those who had used weed at least once a month for at least a year had 68 per cent increased odds and current users had near 98 per cent increased odds.

Christian couple face flogging after a Sharia court nullifies marriage and charges them with adultery

A bizarre situation took place in Sudan when an Islamic court ordered a married couple with two small children to receive 100 lashes for committing adultery. The problem started when the Sharia court nullified the couple’s marriage because the Muslim husband had become a Christian. Since the court no longer considered the couple married, they were then charged with adultery, which has a penalty of 100 lashes under Sharia law. Christian Post reports that the couple, Hamouda Tia Kafi, 34, and his wife, Nada Hamad Shukralah, 25, were both Muslims when they married in 2016. The problem started after Hamouda converted to Christianity in 2021, followed by his wife. They both now attend a Baptist church. This resulted in his wife’s brother bringing charges against the couple because of their illegal conversion. Sudan, which is located in North-East Africa, has a population of 48 million people. Sharia law governed the country’s justice system between 2005 and 2019. That was abandoned after the country transitioned to a democracy after the ouster of President Omar al-Bashir. Under …

A depressed Muslim woman becomes a believer after audibly hearing the word ‘Jesus’

CBN recently reported on the remarkable conversion of a Muslim woman, Aisha, who was born in Amman, Jordan to a very strict Muslim family. After her family moved to the US, Alisha became pregnant when she was 17 years old. Fearing that her father would kill her, Alisha secretly had an abortion. But in the years that followed, Aisha experienced condemnation because of her illegitimate child and abortion. She had been taught that Allah hated her and though she repeatedly begged Allah for mercy, she didn’t believe it would ever come. As she struggled with depression and suicidal thoughts, Aisha stated that her remarkable conversion started when she audibly heard the name Jesus as she was pleading to Allah for mercy. Hearing Christ’s name, who is considered a healing prophet in the Islamic faith, Aisha decided to pray to Jesus and immediately felt a great peace come over her. It is also important to note, that though Muslims do not believe Jesus died on the cross, the Koran says that Christ was taken to heaven …

US Christian schools are being overrun with applications

CBN reports that with all the controversies engulfing public schools in the US, Christian schools are seeing a marked increase in applications. Since Cornerstone Chapel’s Senior Pastor Gary Hamrick announced the church would be setting up a private Christian school in the fall of 2023, it has received over 2,500 applications for its 500 elementary and middle school positions. The church, based in Leesburg, Virginia, is located in Loudon County which has become the battleground over parental rights in public schools. However, the problems don’t seem to be isolated to Loudon County, as the school has also received applications from 27 other states. As well, over 450 teachers have already applied for jobs. CBN writes: The multimillion-dollar project is Hamrick’s response to what’s playing out in public school systems across the country.  Loudoun is considered the face of the nation’s culture war, for more than a year, parents have railed against everything from sexual assault on campus to critical race theory and transgender policies.  Teacher Tanner Cross’s dismissal for refusing to call students by preferred pronouns …
