They say the first casualty in any war is the ‘truth.’ In this battle over freedom, the Ontario government has ordered a stay-at-home lockdown of the Canadian province because the ICUs are being overrun with COVID cases.

Nick Vujicic: ‘Even though we don’t get a miracle, we can be one’

A recent survey conducted by Lifeway Research has concluded there seems to be one small positive coming out of the COVID pandemic — people are starting to think more about their purpose in life. According to its recent survey of 1,200 people, 57% of people stated that at least once a month they are wondering “How can I find more meaning and purpose in my life?” This is up from 51% of people who wondered that same thing in 2011. The pandemic is causing people to realize there is more to life than just satisfying their personal desires. As Christians, it is vital we grasp that God has a purpose and plan for our lives. In a prophetic word given to the prophet Jeremiah, we read that God’s purpose for Jeremiah’s life was not laid out when the prophet was born, in fact, God’s plan for Jeremiah was written up before he was even conceived (Jeremiah 1:5). When you were born, God wasn’t caught off guard and wondering what am I going to do with …

How Jesus became front and center during ‘March Madness’

Each year, the NCAA holds a basketball tournament of the top ranked colleges in the US to determine a national champion. This year’s national tournament, often referred to as March Madness, was unusual because Christian universities were the talk of the town as it ended with Baylor, a Christian university out of Waco, Texas, winning the men’s crown. But it all started on a negative tone, with a USA Today columnist, Hemal Jhaveri, writing a hit piece on Oral Roberts University (ORU). The 15th seeded ORU, referred to as this year’s Cinderella team, rose to prominence advancing to the final 16 round of the tournament. This also put a target on the team’s back. Jhaveri called for the NCAA to ban ORU from the tournament because the Christian university did not hold the writer’s personal views on homosexuality and morality. Oddly, Jhaveri, called for the team to be banned in the name of diversity. Stories about Jhaveri’s call to ban ORU were all over the internet with most condemning the article asking why woke politics …

Interview with Calgary pastor who drove police out of his church on Easter Friday

I recently posted a story of how Pastor Artur Pawlowski of Calgary, Alberta, Canada demanded several police officers leave his church after they showed up during the church’s Easter Service (April 2, 2021) without a warrant. In very colourful language, Pastor Pawlowski drove them out of his church calling them communists and Nazis.

Canada’s democratically elected tyrants?

Seniors living in care homes in the province of Ontario, who have received their COVID vaccinations, are asking why they are still being locked up? Why are governments preventing them from going outside? Why can’t they visit their family? Why do governments feel they can violate people’s basic human rights? Some seniors are referring to it as torture.

Is Big Tech trying to buy off everyone?

There is an old saying, he who pays the piper calls the tune. The Heritage Foundation is a conservative think tank that promotes “the principles of free enterprise, limited government, individual freedom and traditional American values.” And recently the organization’s CEO announced that in 2020, the Heritage Foundation turned down two large donations from Big Tech.

Watch an Easter service from the Garden Tomb in Jerusalem

If churches in your area are still locked down, you may want to watch CBN’s Easter Service live from the Garden Tomb in Jerusalem. It’s available in English, Spanish and Mandarin. Click here to watch the service. CBN writes: As the sun rises over the Mount of Olives in Jerusalem on Easter Sunday, thousands of people will be turning to the Garden Tomb to celebrate in a place many believe to be the place where the resurrection occurred almost 2000 years ago. The sermon will be available in English, Spanish and Mandarin. Some believe that the Garden Tomb is the place where Jesus was buried after His crucifixion and then rose from the dead. But those who manage the site do not make this claim but rather point to it as an example of what a tomb in that day looked like, including a ramp where a stone was rolled to block the entrance. Archaeologists have dated this particular tomb to the 8th or 7th century BC. While it was very common for tombs to …

How the Death of a 20th-Century Rabbi Helps Demonstrate the Reality of the Resurrection of Jesus

By Dr. Michael L. Brown For many years, scholars and skeptics and psychologists and sociologists have told us that the disciples experienced a form of cognitive dissonance after Jesus died. It so rocked their world and crushed their expectations that they went into deep denial to the point of believing that Jesus really rose from the dead. To be sure, other scholars have attacked this theory from a number of powerful and persuasive angles, but my book Resurrection tackles it from a different angle. Specifically, I focus on a modern-day, parallel test case that completely demolishes this argument. To give the relevant background, in 1994, a leading rabbi, one of the most influential Jews of the 20th century, died at the age of 92. His name was Menachem Mendel Schneerson, and he was known as the Lubavitcher Rebbe. But this rabbi had become so influential that, before his death, his followers began to proclaim that he was the long-awaited Messiah. Redemption had come for Israel! Toward the end of his life, however, he suffered two …

Belgium judge orders government to end lockdown

A judge in Belgium has ordered the country to end the county-wide lockdown within 30 days. The Brussels Times writes: The Belgian State has been ordered to lift “all coronavirus measures” within 30 days, as the legal basis for them is insufficient, a Brussels court ruled on Wednesday. The League for Human Rights had filed the lawsuit several weeks ago and challenged Belgium’s system of implementing the measures using Ministerial Decrees, which means it is done without any input from parliament. The judge gave the Belgian State 30 days to provide a sound legal basis, or face a penalty of €5,000 per day that this period is exceeded, with a maximum limit of €200,000, reports Le Soir. READ: Belgium must lift ‘all Covid-19 measures’ within 30 days, Brussels court rules The judge essentially ruled that the government utilized the Civil Safety Act of 2007 to institute the lockdown that gives the government extreme power in emergency situations. The judge ruled that the government must now prove its extreme lockdown measures are necessary and that they work. …
