Going the ‘extra mile’ of forgiveness in Zimbabwe

In Matthew 5:41, Jesus was referring to an interesting privilege available to Roman soldiers when he told his disciples, ‘If anyone forces you to go one mile, go with them two miles.’ It’s where we get the idiom used today, about ‘going the extra mile.’ It is based on a Roman law, that allowed a Roman soldier to compel any idle, able-bodied man or a man walking in the same direction, provided he was not a Roman citizen, to carry the soldier’s armour for one thousand paces or approximately a mile. Jesus taught if a soldier required this of you, instead of resenting and fighting it, a person should forgive and offer to carry the soldier’s armour two miles. In the verse prior to this, Jesus also taught if a man steals your shirt, then give your cloak as well. And CBN reports that this is the attitude that Craig Deall and his family took in 2003, when the Zimbabwe government seized their farm, without compensation. It was part of the government’s land reform policy …

Video: Meet Britain’s eco mob

As you can see in this video, the eco fanatics in Britain are determined to disrupt life in that country anyway they can. These type of protests have been going on for weeks.

Walgreens closes 5 more San Francisco stores due to organized shoplifting gangs

Fox News is reporting that Walgreens is closing five more stores in San Francisco because of organized shoplifting gangs that are plundering these stores. It has already closed 10 stores in the city since 2019 because of the thefts at California stores are now five time Walgreens’ national shoplifting average. The gangs have been emboldened by the passing of a law in the state, that does not consider shoplifting a felony until it exceeds $950. Since its passing, gangs have been organizing shoplifting rings, often composed of underage or homeless people, with leaders even bringing along calculators to ensure they don’t exceed $950. The stolen goods are then resold. READ: Walgreens closing 5 more San Francisco stores due to theft 12 And because lawlessness will be increased, the love of many will grow cold.

The Religion of Covid: Have you been demonized yet?

The word “demonize” used here means being shunned and described as ‘one of those people.’ It does not refer to any occult activity.  We can disagree with someone, and say something like “Oh, you are one of those people.” After that, we don’t have to listen to them, or respect their opinions and we can avoid a conversation with one of ‘those people’ by ‘demonizing’ them. Hitler did that to the Jews, and it is a common thing in racial prejudice. So, have you been demonized yet, in these COVID times? I don’t want to choose sides here, about how dangerous COVID is, or arguments about vaccination. Those topics are important, but I don’t want to be like a dog who chases all the rabbits at the same time. Religious people can see the religion and theology in COVID regulations. We have saints and sinners who follow the rules or not, and COVID heaven and hell, and we can find salvation if we do the right things. Also, the true believers are very devout, and …

Is America’s withdrawal from Afghanistan a fulfillment of Islamic end-times prophecy?

Similar to Christianity, Islam also has an end times theology that involves the arrival of a Muslim Messiah, who will set up Islam on world-wide scale. This person is referred to as the ‘Mahdi’ According to CBN, the take over of Afghanistan by the Taliban, after America’s withdrawal, is now being heralded as a fulfilment of prophecy paving the way for the arrival of the ‘Mahdi.’ It reports that the radical Islamic group’s twitter page is specifically referencing ‘black flags’, that are tied to the Islamic end times. The radical Islamic group states, “Black flags will arise from Khorasan and nothing will be able to return them.” According to author Joel Richardson, the reference to black flags from Khorasan, which is located in Afghanistan, is connected to the arrival of the Islamic Messiah. In a webinar sponsored by CBN, Richardson explained: “It says an army will come from Khorasan carrying black flags and then it says this: ‘If you see them give them your allegiance.  Even if you have to crawl over ice.  Because this …

Tesla headquarters moving from California to Texas

The steady stream of people and businesses leaving California continues as Tesla CEO Elon Musk announced that the company’s headquarters will be moved from Palo Alto, California to Austin, Texas. Musk made the announcement at the company’s recent shareholder meeting. The company CEO added that Tesla’s plant in Fremont will remain open, but noted that there is a limit to how much they can do at the plant. He added that any future production plans will be done at locations outside California. Tesla is currently building a factory in Austin, Texas. The Tesla CEO was infuriated last year when Alameda County bureaucrats tried to shut down production at the company’s Fremont plant as part of its COVID lockdown. He said in his opinion, the state’s orders telling people they could not leave their homes as part of this lockdown was unconstitutional.

Despite increasing persecution, Christianity growing in Indonesia

It defies logic, but according to a report by the Indonesian government, the Christian population in that Muslim-dominated country has grown by 1% over the past decade. With just over 86% of Indonesia’s population (272.2 million) identifying as Muslim, the country has the largest muslim population (236 million) of any country in the world. But the growth of Christianity is interesting considering the emergence of several Muslim extremist groups in recent years, that have been ramping up their persecution of Christians. This past spring, the government was forced to increase security for churches during Easter services after two militants, a husband and wife, who had pledged allegiance to the Islamic extremist group, ISIS, blew themselves up outside a church the previous Palm Sunday, injuring 20. Yet, despite this growing persecution, International Concern reports that as of June 2021, the government reported that 10.58% of its population is Christian (comprised of 20.4 million protests and 8.4 million Catholics). This is up from 9.87% of its population reporting as Christian in 2010. In real numbers, the Christian …

Meet Portland’s new ‘woke’ police force

It’s Portland, which may explain everything. But recently, there was a demonstration of how ‘woke’ the Portland police have become. The Blaze reports that police were called because someone was pounding on the backdoor of restaurant. The indoor dining was closed, but the employees were working the drive through. The police showed up with what is described as an Enhanced Crisis Intervention Team (ECIT) officer who was apparently running the show. The ECIT officer tried to softly talk the man out of breaking into the restaurant. Sadly, the man refused to listen to the ECIT’s psychologically formulated arguments, so the police ‘slowly’ backed away giving the man ‘space’ to continue breaking through the back door. By this point, he was using a grapefruit-sized rock and the employees inside the restaurant were hiding in the restaurant’s freezer. With the police and ECIT officer watching from afar, the man finally broke through the door. With people inside now in danger, the police decided they should probably do something, but the man barricaded himself inside the employee’s break …

Dem lawmaker calls for men to receive vasectomies after 3 children

According to Faithwire, a Democrat lawmaker in Pennsylvania has introduced a bill in the state legislature that would force men who have had either three children or are above the age of 40 (which ever comes first) to have a vasectomy. The bill introduced by Rep Chris Rabb (D), that refers to men as inseminators, requires them to have a vasectomy within six weeks of the birth of a third child. It would also give women who get pregnant the right to sue any man in violation of the above restrictions and also offers a $10,000 reward to any person who exposes a man in violation of the law. The proposed legislation was a mocking response to a bill recently passed in Texas prohibiting abortions after the baby has its first heart beat that typically takes place around the sixth week. Missing in all of this is any serious discussion on when life begins in the womb.

Why did Communist China start doubling its order for COVID tests in May 2019?

The Daily Mail reports that Internet 2.0 (a group of US and Australian researchers) found evidence, that the Chinese province of Hubei (where Wuhan is located), the Wuhan Institute of Virology and Wuhan University of Science and Technology, were ordering an unusual number of PCR tests and machines used to test for COVID and other diseases back in May 2019.

Why the big cover-up about the Wuhan lab?

In 2020, when Chinese researchers from Hong Kong first suggested the lab was the source, there was a major phone call involving scientists and government officials from around the world. And after that phone call, they unanimously and vehemently stated the virus did not leak out of the lab. The esteemed scientists even called the Wuhan COVID leak a ‘conspiracy theory.’
