Poll: Americans cite the government as the country’s biggest problem

In Jan 2023 Gallup Poll, Americans were asked to rank the greatest problems facing America. At the top of the list was government with 21 percent stating it was the country’s biggest concern. In a similar poll held in Nov/Dec 2022, only 15% believed that the government was America’s biggest headache. Inflation came in second at 15% in the January poll. This was followed by immigration at 11%, the economy at 10% and unifying the country at 6%. It could be argued that the government is largely responsible for all the top five concerns facing America.

Communist China spy balloon(s) discovered flying over sensitive military sites in the US and Canada

Communist China spy balloons have been reported over both the US and Canada, the Daily Mail reports. The US and Canadian military are tracking ‘high-altitude surveillance’ balloons. In the US, the balloon, which is the size of three buses, may have flown over highly sensitive nuclear missile sites in Montana. The balloon entered US airspace two days ago and Americans are asking the obvious question, why has US President Joe Biden not ordered it shot down yet? Some have speculated that there may be only one balloon that has been moving over the airspace of both countries. The Chinese Communist Party has, of course, denied all allegations stating that it follows all international laws.

Christian mother sues school for forcing her four-year-old child to participate in a gay-pride parade

A Christian mother in England has taken legal action against the school her four-year-old child attends, because teachers forced him to participate in a gay-pride parade in 2018, against his family’s wishes, the Daily Mail reports. In June 2018, Heavers Farm Primary School in London sent a letter to parents inviting them to participate in a gay pride parade on June 29, 2018. When Izzy Montague, 38, responded and asked that her child be exempt from attending, a teacher told her that attendance was mandatory. Montague says that she and her husband are devout Christians and do not believe their child should be forced to participate in an event that the family does not agree with. In an interview with Christian Concern (below), Montague said there were several parents who expressed concerns about their child’s participation in the parade, but were ignored. Montague added that these children did not consent to participate in this parade. Montague says that when she met with her child’s teacher in September, 2018, the teacher’s child was wearing a t-shirt …

Because of overwhelming interest, the finale of ‘The Chosen’ will have an extended stay in theaters

Because of overwhelming interest, the season finale of The Chosen, a TV series based on the life of Jesus, will have an extended stay in theaters, the Daily Wire reports. Season three’s final two episodes, 7 and 8, were scheduled to play in selected theaters across America on Feb 2 and Feb 3, however, because of interest CBN is reporting that this will now be extended to Feb 6. The finale will feature one of the major Gospel stories, the feeding of the 5,000. When the first two episodes of Season 3 aired in 2,012 theaters in November 2022, they were the third most watch movie in America that weekend, grossing $8.7 million. It finished behind, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever and The Menu which were seen in over 3,000 theaters that same weekend, but was ahead of Disney productions. The Chosen differs from many Christians movies about Jesus and the disciples, because it portrays them a real, quirky people. “[They are] real, vaguely neurotic people, busting free of the stained-glass images that have long enshrined …

Study: Antarctica and the Arctic have not warmed in 70 years despite increasing CO2 emissions

Climate Alarmists have been warning for years that because of man-made global warming, the Antarctica ice caps were going to melt and basically wash away our coastal cities. In August 2021, the left-wing website, Salon, posted an article entitled, “This is what New York City will look like after climate change” to stoke those fears of what will happen if we don’t quit driving SUVs. It wrote that “Scalding temperatures, rising sea levels and changing weather will fundamentally remake the Big Apple.” But there is a problem with this hyper-fear mongering because it seems that despite record amounts of CO2 still being poured into the earth’s atmosphere, the Arctic and Antarctica have not gotten warmer over the past seventy years. The Daily Skeptic provides more details: “A recent paper from two climate scientists (Singh and Polvani) accepts that Antarctica has not warmed in the last seven decades, despite an increase in the atmospheric greenhouse gases. It is noted that the two polar regions present a “conundrum” for understanding present day climate change, as recent warming differs …

Catholic students wearing pro-life caps were kicked out of the Smithsonian?

The Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum in Washington, D.C has allegedly kicked out a group of Catholic high school students because they were wearing hats with a pro-life message, The Blaze reports. The students, who attend a Catholic school in Greenville County, South Carolina, were in the city for the annual March for Life held on Jan 20, 2023, and decided to visit the museum. Shortly after entering they were approached by a security guard and told to leave because the museum was a ‘neutral zone.’ The parents allege it was due to the tuques the students were wearing. In an interview with WYFF-TV, Nora Kriegel, one of the parents of the children involved, said: “They should be allowed to wear the hats that they were wearing and to be able to express themselves. And I felt it was very wrong that this person harassed them.“ American Center of Law and Justice immediately stepped up to represent the students. The Smithsonian has since apologized after hearing about the incident and added that steps were …

Why is the Communist China interested in buying up American farmland?

In an article for Fox News, Jeremy Hunt writes that over the past ten years, the value of land owned by corporations with ties to Communist China has increased from an estimated value of $80 million in 2010 to $1.8 billion in 2020. Hunt, who works as a media fellow at Hudson Institute, then explains why the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) is so interested in buying up farmland in America: Home to 20 percent of the global population, but only 7 to 9 percent of the world’s arable land, China is an extreme food shortage. To combat the crisis, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) devised a decades-long strategy of purchasing millions of acres of American farmland, livestock, seeds and food supply lines from the United States. Hunt adds that members of congress will soon be introducing a bill, the PASS Act, that would prevent Russia, China, North Korea and Iran from purchasing American farmland. The Act would also prevent the purchase of Agricultural related businesses. For a list of some Agricultural related industries that Communist …

Pro-life protestor found not guilty by a jury of his peers

A pro-life dad who was arrested at gunpoint by the FBI has been found not guilty by a jury of his peers, The Blaze reports. The Federal Justice Department had charged Mark Houck, 48, under the FACE act with trying to “injure, intimidate and interfere” with an individual who was working for a Planned Parenthood clinic. The Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances (FACE) Act makes it illegal to interfere, intimidate or injure anyone seeking an abortion. The charge arose after Houck pushed a 72-year-old man who was volunteering to escort people into the Planned Parenthood Elizabeth Blackwell Health Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in October 2021. Houck admitted shoving the man, but said it had nothing to do with the man’s volunteer work with the clinic, but because the man had been harassing Houck’s 12-year-old son. If found guilty under the FACE Act, Houck faced a potential 11-year sentence and a $350,000 fine. Many believe the case was brought forth by the Federal Justice Department simply to intimidate pro-lifers and other people of faith. Houck …

Afghan Taliban warn universities about allowing women to take entrance exams

According to a report by Fox News, the Taliban in Afghanistan are continuing to put down women in that country by warning universities to not allow women to take entrance exams. The news came in the form of a letter, that a Taliban official sent to private colleges in Afghanistan. The Taliban enforce a hard-line interpretation of Islamic law in the country and this was part of the group’s continuing clamp down on women. It had previously instituted a law forbidding women from attending post-secondary schools. The extremist group had earlier banned girls from attending middle and high school in that country. Along with this, the Taliban have introduced legislation limiting a woman’s ability to work outside the home and to leave her home without a chaperone.

Statue described by some as satanic pays homage to abortion on top of New York courthouse

A new horned female statue, called Now, with tentacles for arms, has been temporarily set up on the roof of a New York state courthouse in New York City alongside the statues of historical figures. Across the street, a sister 18′ statue entitled Witness has been set up in Madison Square Park. The statues are the work of a Pakistani-American artist, Shahzia Sikander and will remain on the site until June when they will be transferred to a location in Houston, Texas. The Blaze described the statue appearing on the roof of New York State’s Supreme Court alongside ancient historical lawgivers, such as Moses, as: “An eight-foot sculpture of a horned female fused to a lotus flower with what appear to be tentacles has been erected above a state courthouse in New York City. The statue joins nine others portraying historical lawgivers, each representing the world’s purportedly great legal systems.” Sikander added that her inspiration was her opposition to the recent overturning of Roe vs Wade, by the US Supreme Court. She dedicated the eight-foot …

World’s most crime-ridden McDonald’s in Ottawa, Canada to close

We have been hearing stories about how businesses are closing in California and other US states because of rampant crime due to Democrat prosecutors-easy-on crime policies, well the trend is happening in Canada, Fox News reports. Apparently, a McDonald’s restaurant in Canada’s capital city, Ottawa, has decided to close down due to rampant crime. It has been dubbed the world’s most crime-ridden McDonald’s. As Charles Bordeleau, Ottawa’s former chief of police explained in his letter to the McDonald’s CEO in 2019: “Officers attend this location on a daily basis to address issues including vagrancy, liquor license violations, illicit drug use, and incidents of violence.” Fox News added that in 2017, police responded to 900 calls from that particular McDonald’s location and along with 843 in 2018. In 2019, the location called police over seven times a day during a two-day stretch in April. And more recently, customers are reporting finding hypodermic needles on the floor of the restaurant.

A woman that Newsom depicted in an ad as being sad over Roe vs Wade ruling was actually jubilant because she is pro-life

When California Governor Gavin Newsom decided to run a pro-abortion ad, he used an image of a woman crying outside the US Supreme Court to depict the sadness and panic women were feeling because of the overturning of Roe vs Wade, The Blaze reports. However, maybe he should have checked with the woman first before including her image because her name was Macy Petty, a Lee University student and pro-life activist. In response, Petty tweeted “Panic? Sad? Try ecstatic, blown away by God’s grace on this country” and posted her response to both the Governor’s official and personal Twitter accounts. On her Instagram account, Petty went further and accused Newsom of trying to put his words in her mouth: “California governor Gavin Newsom has used my image in one of his political ads in yet another attempt to show his support for women. He and pro abortion Democrats have one again shown Americans that they care little for my voice as a woman.” She also asked Newsom to take down the ad or remove her …

Third-grader wins battle with her school over ‘Jesus Loves Me’ facemask

In 2020, third-grader Lydia Booth was forced to wear a facemask at school because of Covid, but got into a heap of trouble with her Simpson County School District in Mississippi when she wore a facemask that said: “Jesus love me,” Fox News reports. Kids throughout the school were wearing facemasks with words on them and Lydia had worn the mask several times, with no complaints. Note, the facemask didn’t say “Jesus loves you” it was an expression of her personal faith of God’s love for her. Lydia said that in the midst of the pandemic, the facemask helped her feel safe. But that changed when the school district decided to change its policy in the middle of its school year and disallow masks with political and religious messages on them. As soon as the edict was passed, Lydia was told she could no longer wear the mask. It was noted that, Lydia’s facemask did not cause disruption in the school and none of the students had complained about it. But obviously, someone didn’t like …

American Hispanic protestant churches reporting growth

According to a survey conducted by Lifeway Research, Hispanic churches across the US have seen significant growth in recent years, Christian Headlines reports. The survey found that most of the Hispanic churches (54%) were started after 2000 including 32% after 2010. Lifeway Executive Director Scott McConnell described the growth as remarkable. He added while many of the churches sprung out of English-speaking churches, he said that 14% of the Hispanic churches originated from within Hispanic communities themselves. Additionally, with 58% of their congregation members being first-generation Americans, meaning they were born outside the US, 53% of the services are conducted in Spanish only and 22% of Hispanic churches hold bilingual services. The Hispanic churches are also active in evangelization with 79% of pastors reporting that they schedule regular evangelistic activities for their churches. This ranges from official outreaches such as door-to-door evangelism to holding festivals and other community activities where members can invite neighbors and friends. Nearly half the churches (47%) report they have seen ten or more people making commitments to Christ through these …

Dan Cathy, son of Chick-fil-A’s founder, states the popular fast food restaurant exists to ‘glorify God’

For the eighth year in a row, Chick-fil-A was rated as America’s most popular food chain by the American Customer Satisfaction Index in 2022. Yet despite this, the fast-food chain has outraged left-wing politicians. When the corporation opened its third restaurant in New York City in 2016, then mayor Bill de Blasio along with several members of the council called for a boycott of the restaurant. This is because the Truett family, who owns the restaurant chain, have never been shy about expressing their faith in Christ and support of the traditional family. And in a recent interview with Chief Executive, Dan Cathy, who serves as Chick-fil-A’s chairman of the board, explained that the purpose of the company is to glorify God, CBN reports. “At Chick-fil-A, we are very grounded on our corporate purpose, to be a purpose-driven organization,” Dan said in the interview. “That purpose is defined in the statement that we’re here to glorify God by being a faithful steward of all that’s entrusted to us and have a positive influence on all …

A man shouting ‘death to Christian’ kills one and injured four in a machete attack on two churches in Spain

A man armed with a machete attacked the members of two Catholic churches in Spain on Wednesday, Jan 25, 2023, leaving at least one dead and four injured, The Telegraph reports. One of the injured, a priest, is in serious condition with a neck injury. According to witnesses, the man entered the churches in Algeciras located in Southern Spain, shouting ‘death to Christians’ and ‘Allahu akbar’. Authorities believe it could be a terrorist attack. Police have since arrested a 25-year-old Moroccan, who they believed acted alone. The man had been issued deportation orders a year earlier.

It costs more to charge an EV, than fill a gas-powered vehicle in Britain

People promoting electric vehicles told us that they were cheaper to operate than gas powered vehicles. Well, that green dream may soon be coming to an end. A British study says it is now cheaper to fill up a gas-powered car in England than an electric one as the price of electricity in that country has soared, The Telegraph reports. According to a report by AA, electric vehicles cost more per mile to operate than gas-powered vehicle, a difference of 16.18 pence per mile for an EV compared to 14.45 pence per mile for gas. This is the equivalent of £10 more per fill. And with the British government considering a ban on the sale of petrol vehicles over the next few years, the demand for and cost of electricity will only continue to rise.

WEF speaker told not to use the words God, religion or faith in his talk about ‘keeping the faith’

At the recent World Economic Forum (WEF) annual meeting held in Davos, Switzerland, the organization actually held a session on ‘keeping the faith’. However, there was one major caveat, the speaker, Farhan Latif, was told not to mention ‘God’, ‘faith’ or ‘religion’ during his speech, LifeSite News reports. “Before I jump in, I want to offer a trigger warning for the audience. As I was preparing for this session … they told me, ‘Don’t use the words religion, faith, and God,’ and so I just ask people to translate that to ‘mindfulness,’ ‘purpose-driven,’ ‘spirituality,’” said Latif who serves as president of the El-Hibri Foundation. It was probably a joke and though Latif’s comments were met with laughter from the crowd, some wonder if it represents a deeper sentiment about removing God from any discussions about the future of the world. As Emily Manigiarcina explains in her article for LifeSite, God is a threat to WEF’s globalist agenda writing: In fact, God and authentic religion are a threat to the WEF’s agenda, not only because they …

Survey: Nearly 1 in 4 Dutch young people believe the Nazi holocaust never happened

According to a survey commissioned by The Conference on Jewish Material Claims against Germany, nearly one in four Dutch young people (Millennials and Gen Z) believe the German Holocaust is a myth, CBN reports. The survey also found that a significant number of Dutch people also think the number of Jewish deaths was exaggerated and believed less than 2 million Jews were killed during the Holocaust. The actual number was over 6 million. And even though, 70% of Dutch Jews (102,000 of 140,000) were hauled away and killed by the Nazis in their concentration camps, over half of Dutch of all ages do not believe Holland was affected by these events. The Nazi holocaust was one of the motivating forces behind the creation of the State of Israel in 1948, an event prophesied in the Bible. He will raise a signal for the nations and will assemble the banished of Israel, and gather the dispersed of Judah from the four corners of the earth.

Fighting recidivism with faith

“I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me.” (Matthew 25:36 ESV) Recidivism is a term used to describe inmates who have been incarcerated for a crime, released and then end up back in prison a second time having fallen back into a life of crime. It is a major problem. In an article for CBS article entitled “Once a Criminal, Always a Criminal”, Stephanie Slifer wrote about a 2005 study conducted by the National Institute of Justice of 495,000 inmates in 30 states which found: Just punishing a person for their crime is not sufficient, a transformation needs to take place in their heart. Consequently, when the new Decatur County Detention Center in Greensburg, Indiana was being constructed, then Sheriff Dave Durant pushed to ensure there was enough room to focus on rehabilitating prisoners to end this relentless cycle. This included making room and providing funding for both faith and non-faith based programs, the Greensburg Daily Signal reported in 2019. …

Are satanists at it again?

For several years, the small community of Bramshaw, England has been inundated with satanic symbols, rituals and related vandalism. The latest involved the discovery of five animal hearts placed on top of a stone landmark at the site. It was surrounded by a large circle of candles in what appeared to have been part of a satanic ritual held at the site, the Daily Mail reports. The ceremony was performed in a popular area in a nearby park sometime around Jan 13, 2023. Public displays of the demonic rituals started showing up in 2019, when people found dead sheep lying on roads with pentagrams spray-painted on their corpses. In one instance, an upside-down cross was placed on a body. St. Peter’s Church was also vandalized with satanic symbols that same year. Then in December 2022, parishioners who were on their way to the church in preparations for Christmas, found a dead cat hanging from the flagpole. “I have no idea why it is happening in our area. If it is connected to witchcraft, then the …

Big revival in small town Kentucky

Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out, that times of refreshing may come from the Lord. (Acts 3:19 NIV) While it is easy to be awestruck by mega churches which are typically defined as having over 2,000 people attending weekly services, God is not caught up in numbers but rather in matters of the heart. A revival has broken out in North Main Community Church, located in the small town of Barbourville in South Eastern Kentucky with a population of just 3,200. The church is pastored by Scott Phipps, 58, a former drug dealer in the town who turned to Christ shortly after his wife came home declaring she had become a Christian and was done with drugs. The revival, which has been going on for nearly three months, is impacting the small community as over 300 people have been saved during the meetings and over 150 drug addicts have been delivered. Scott told CBN that during the nightly services, they will have over 150 people who were …

US Energy Department report highlights huge cost of ending Keystone pipeline

One of the first things that President Joe Biden did when he took office in 2021 was to cancel the Keystone XL pipeline. According to a report by the US government’s Energy Department, that decision came at a great economic cost, Breitbart reports. The report entitled, Keystone XL Extension Permit Revocation: Energy Costs and Job Impacts, was released in December 2021. It stated that the decision cost between 16,149 to 59,468 jobs in the short term. The Keystone pipeline was expected to ship 830,000 barrels of Canadian crude oil to the US, and create 42,000 long-term jobs amounting to $2 billion in total wages. This was all squashed when President Biden recklessly revoked the permits of the project that was already halfway done, resulting in the stakeholders terminating the project.

God knows your name

Having someone mention your name indicates a level of familiarity, perhaps even friendship. And we understand from Scripture, that God not only knows us, but he knows our name. Perhaps the most famous involved the Apostle Paul, who while in his previous life was persecuting Christians, God called him by name as he was on the road to Damascus to arrest more Christians: “Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting Me?” (Acts 9:4 NASV) Many have this perception, that God is indifferent to what is happening to us, but that is not true. God is personally interested in what is going on in your life. And Jo Hargreaves shared how similar to Paul, God called her by name, transforming her life. Hargreaves’ mother had divorced twice and this included a second marriage to a church vicar, that left a bad taste in Hargreaves mouth about Christianity. By the time she arrived at university, Hargreaves had abandoned any semblance of a Christian faith and started dabbling in paganism and even signed up with classes that pushed those …

Nancy Pelosi had Roman Catholic priests perform an exorcism at her home, daughter states

According to the daughter of former House speaker, Nancy Pelosi, her mother had Roman Catholic priests come into her home and perform an exorcism after Pelosi’s husband was seriously injured in an attack at their home on Oct 28, 2022, The Blaze reports. Nancy’s daughter, Alexandra Pelosi, made the admission in a recent interview with the New York Times, stating that the attack deeply impacted her mother. “I think that weighed really heavy on her soul. I think she felt really guilty. I think that really broke her,” Alexandra said in the interview. Nancy’s husband was severely injured in the attack after being hit with a hammer by an intruder in their home while police were standing only a few feet away. Roman Catholic exorcisms include blessings, prayers, and invocations found in an 84-page manual entitled Of Exorcisms and Certain Supplications. This can include such invocations as: Depart, then, transgressor. Depart, seducer, full of lies and cunning, foe of virtue, persecutor of the innocent. Give place, abominable creature, give way, you monster, give way to …

Woke Religion: What is your path?

I am probably the last person you would ask for relationship advice, but let me try: Always understand the other person’s religion. Religion, or the god that someone trusts could be money, personal success and fame, or power over other people. It is also possible to worship God. But, beyond a formal religion, what is the greatest success that anyone could achieve? What kind of thinking dominates a person’s life? What is your great success goal? What road is your life on? Are you obsessed with anything? That is religion, or faith; the great hope. The world is a very religious place; more than we know. For example, there is now a run on orange hockey jerseys with a number nine on them. They represent Ivan Provorov, a Russian player with the Philadelphia Fliers. The team had a special event when they celebrated “LGBTQ+ Pride Night” before a recent game. For the pre-game warm-up, players wore colorful jerseys and other equipment to show their support. Ivan Provorov did not wear the colorful equipment and did …

Elon Musk calls WEF, an ‘unelected world government’

If you are unaware, the World Economic Forum (WEF) is on the last day of its annual meeting in Davos, Switzerland. Many believe the organization funded and founded by Klaus Schwab is pushing for world domination. Elon Musk, Twitter’s new owner, recently condemned the WEF calling it an ‘unelected world government,” Fox News reports. “WEF is increasingly becoming an unelected world government that the people never asked for and don’t want,” Musk tweeted. The WEF’s annual meeting, held this year from January 16 to 20, attracts elites from areas of academia, politics, and business, and its founder Klaus Schwab has described the recent COVID pandemic as an opportunity for a great reset, and to make the world in Schwab’s image. That includes a program called Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG), and Musk later tweeted the S actually stands for Satanic.

After brutal media attacks, Provorov’s jersey sells out at NHL online store

There has been a subtle shift in culture where a person can no longer remain neutral on certain issues, but must actively support them, or risk being called some type of ‘phobe’. Ivan Provorov, a defenceman for the Philadelphia Flyers, recently found himself being lambasted by the woke media and on social media for not donning a pride-themed jersey during warm-up prior to a game against the Anaheim Ducks on Tuesday, Fox News reports The Russian-born player sat out the warm-up stating that he didn’t feel comfortable doing it, choosing instead to stand with his convictions and religious beliefs. In an interview after the game, Provorov told reporters: “I respect everybody and I respect everybody’s choices. My choice is to stay true to myself and my religion. That’s all I’m going to say.” Provorov, who attends the Russian Orthodox Church, wasn’t being critical, he just couldn’t support it. But it seems a person can no longer remain neutral on these issues but must be seen actively supporting them or face the wrath of the woke …

Increased interest in spirituality brings opportunity and danger, surveys find

According to a survey conducted by Barna, there is a potential for a great spiritual awakening among Americans, as they appear to be more open to spiritual things since the pandemic. The survey found that 74% of Americans stated that they were interested in ‘growing spiritually’ and 44% added that they are more open to God than they were before the COVID pandemic, Christian Headlines reports. The survey also found that 77% believed there was a ‘higher power’ or God and only 9% did not believe this. Barna CEO David Kinnaman said that while attendance at churches has declined since the pandemic, the survey revealed this growing interest in spiritual things provided a “tremendous opportunity for faith leaders.” “Across every generation, in fact, we see an unprecedented desire to grow spiritually, a belief in a spiritual/supernatural dimension and a belief in God or a higher power” Kinnaman added. He noted that this interest is even showing up among teens where 76% said that “Jesus speaks to me in a way that is relevant to my …

Mom meets the son she saved after changing her mind while lying on the abortion table

CBN recently had a story about Melissa Coles, who in 1993 changed her mind about having an abortion while laying on the table and eventually met her son, whose life she spared. Coles, 18, was poor and unmarried made the decision as the doctor’s hand touched her leg to start the procedure. She blurted out ‘I can’t do this’ and the doctor rolling his eyes stopped. Unaware of what to do next, she later found out that adoption was an option. The story exposes the oldest lie in the abortion handbook, that the child is unwanted. The baby may not be wanted by the mother, for a variety of reasons, but there are thousands of families desperate for a child. In Coles’ case, it ended up being a Christian woman, who had given birth to two children who later died because of their disabilities. Coles gave birth to a baby boy in December 1993, who was named David James. Eighteen years later, Cole had a chance to meet the son she had given up for …

North Korea is the most dangerous place in the world for Christians

Open Doors is a Christian organization that monitors and reports on the persecution of Christians around the world In its most recent release of the World Watch List, which breaks down the countries where Christians experience the most severe persecution, it put North Korea at the top beating out last year’s leader, Afghanistan, Premier Christian News reports. Open Doors added that North Korea also received the highest negative score ever given a country for its persecution of Christians. The increase was largely due to the passing of its “Anti-Reactionary Thought Law,” which criminalizes the use of any materials not published in the country including the Bible. North Korean officials have used this law to track down anyone who has been influenced by outside religious materials. Open Door estimates that there are approximately 400,000 Christians in the country which has a population of around 26 million. Open Doors adds that upwards of 70,000 Christians are imprisoned in one of North Korea’s gulags. READ: North Korea deemed most dangerous country to be a Christian In its propaganda, …

Why Westerners are not receiving dreams and visions like those in the Middle East?

In Joel 2:28, the prophet spoke of a day when God would pour out His Holy Spirit on all flesh, and added that it would be evidenced by people having dreams and visions. I have written several articles on how people in the Middle East have had their lives transformed by God-given dreams and visions. And while this seems to be happening in other parts of the world, it does not seem to be taking place, at least to the same degree, in Western countries. I have a couple of friends who regularly receive dreams and visions. In my case, I have had only one, which I would describe as a warning dream. It resulted in a positive, spiritually life-altering experience as my wife and I moved to another city. Yet, for most Westerners, myself included, these are rare experiences in Christian circles. In an interview with Faithwire, Rev. Lazarus Yeghnazar, the founder of Transform Iran, made an interesting statement that may explain why. If he was in a meeting with Iranian believers and asked …
