Poll reveals that most Gen Z and Millennials oppose abortion after a heartbeat detected

Though a slim majority, I was pleased that a recent poll revealed that the majority of Gen Z (born between 1999 and 2015) and Millennials (1981-1998) opposed abortion after a baby’s heartbeat was detected. The Christian Post reports that a pro-life organization, Students for Life, surveyed 853 individuals between the ages of 18-34 in early January. In the survey, the group was provided information that a baby’s heartbeat can be detected at 21 weeks and then asked if they supported abortion after this point. The poll found that 52% stated that abortions should be banned after 21 weeks, compared to 48% who said that abortions should still be allowed. In the same poll, the students were asked about their feelings on Roe vs Wade, the 1973 Supreme court case that legalized abortions across the US. Initially, 60% stated that they ‘very strongly’, ‘strongly’ or ‘somewhat’ supported Roe vs Wade. However, attitudes changed slightly after the pollsters provided the group with more information on the infamous court case. Overall support for Roe vs Wade dropped to …

How many people died solely of COVID in the UK?

In this video, Dr. John Campbell takes a closer look at the COVID information provided through a recent Freedom of Information request in Britain. One of the big issues with COVID is how many people died solely of COVID, compared to those who died with COVID, meaning they had other serious underlying health issues? They discovered that 17,371 people had died solely of COVID, compared to the government’s official number of 152,872. It also revealed that the average age of death in the UK from COVID in 2020 was 81.5 and in 2021, 82.5 which was higher than the average life expectancy in the UK of about 80.9. Campbell also looked at the number of excess deaths in 2020 and 2021, compared to previous years. In Britain, the number of excess deaths was 127,704 compared to the five-year average. Though some believe this is a more accurate reflection of the impact of COVID, it doesn’t provide the whole story. Because there were also more deaths from cancer compared to previous years because people were either …

Poll: Over 25% of Canadians support jailing the unvaccinated

A recent poll of Canadians conducted by Maru Public Opinion found that over a quarter of Canadians, 27%, believed that people not vaccinated for COVID should be subject to short jail terms. According to the National Post, the poll conducted between Jan. 14-15, 2022 also found: 37% believe the unvaccinated should not receive medical care from the country’s state-run health care system, even though their tax dollars help fund it. 33% of respondents believed the unvaccinated should be punished by not allowing them to renew their driver’s license. 61% said that the unvaccinated should be required to pay a health surcharge of upwards of $150 a month if admitted to hospital for COVID. Two-thirds of Canadians believed that COVID vaccines should be mandatory. Under the Canadian constitution, health care is a provincial issue, meaning only provincial governments could mandate vaccines.

Survey: 80% of Evangelicals would like to see at least one change in their church

While a recent study conducted by Grey Matter Research and Infinity Concepts found that the majority (74%) of Evangelical church members are happy with their church, 80% would like to see at least one change. The survey of 1,000 Evangelical Christians asked them to provide their opinions on 14 areas of church services and culture. Only those who regularly attended a service or watched online were included in the survey results. The survey revealed the top five areas where people most wanted change: 38% of those surveyed were dissatisfied with the amount of outreach; 33% were not satisfied with the size of the congregation; 32% were not satisfied with the style of music 32% were dissatisfied with the amount of political messaging/involvement; and 31% were not satisfied with the amount of in-depth teaching. But though these top areas of concern seem straightforward, they actually aren’t. Infinity Concepts CEO, Mark Dreistadt, noted that even though nearly a third of churchgoers wanted changes in the style of music, 15% wanted more contemporary music, and 18% wanted more …

With Chicago becoming the most dangerous city in America, Cory Brooks, the pastor of New Beginnings Church, started a 100 day and night vigil on a rooftop in Woodlawn in an effort to raise money for a new community center to help fight the rising violence in the city. Each night, Brooks releases an episode related to the violence affecting his community.

Another study says Omicron is significantly milder than previous variants

Reports coming in from around the world are stating the same thing, Omicron is much milder than previous variants of COVID. The UK has been particularly hard hit by Omicron. But the Daily Mail writes that a recent study by the UK’s Health Security Agency reveals that those who catch Omicron are 70% less likely to be hospitalized than the previous Delta variant. Most who do catch it are asymptomatic or have cold-like symptoms. The same report stated that the effectiveness of the booster vaccines fades after about ten weeks. Predictably, the doom and gloomers are screaming that the sky is falling and warn of the imminent collapse of the health system, and are calling for more lockdowns, masks, and a fourth jab. READ: Millions set for early FOURTH jab after it emerges booster effect starts wearing off after just 10 weeks: But major study finds Omicron is 70% less likely to cause hospitalisation as daily cases hit record 119,789 Meanwhile, several reputable epidemiologists are stating the arrival of Omicron is evidence that the pandemic, …

Another study confirms Omicron is mild

Yet another study has concluded that Omicron is a much milder form of COVID than previous variants, including Delta. Many are now saying it has taken on cold-like symptoms, such as a runny nose and headaches. The Daily Mail reports that a study of 160,000 Omicron cases by researchers from South Africa’s National Institute for Communicable Diseases (NICD) concluded that those who catch the virus are 80% less likely to be hospitalized than previous variants. NICD also found that they were 70% less likely to be admitted to ICU or to require ventilation. The Omicron variant emerged in South Africa and despite repeatedly telling the world that it was much weaker, the West’s political and medical elite are screaming the sky is falling in and demanding a return to lockdowns. This is not surprising, because once the COVID pandemic became politicized in early 2020, medical facts became largely irrelevant. The Daily Mail also noted that the number of Omicron cases in South Africa has fallen for the fourth day in a row, suggesting this COVID …

Why was ‘sorcery,’ Biblegateway’s top searched term in 2021?

Biblegateway.com, a website used by tens of millions of people each year to search and study the Bible, just released its most popular searches over the past 12 months. It was a shocking to discover that the most searched Biblical words were terms related to sorcery, that registered a 193% increase over 2020. The remaining top three searches included: ‘Slow to anger’ that had a 169% increase, and ‘In my Father’s house are many rooms’ that saw a 140% increase over last year. Sorcery knocked out last year’s number one search, plagues and pestilence, which obviously spiked because of COVID. Searches for those terms actually saw a 71% decrease in 2021. But it is strange why sorcery would see such a dramatic increase this year. Biblegateway suggests that it may be due to sorcery being derived from the Greek word, pharmakeia, from which we get the English word pharmacy or drugs. In his article on Biblegateway, Johnathan Peters explains: The increase in sorceries is related to heightened interest in the Greek word pharmakeia which, according …

Nearly half of Americans state inflation is causing financial hardship

According to a Gallup poll conducted in Nov 2021, 45% of Americans stated that the country’s inflation rate is causing ‘financial hardship.’ The Blaze noted that 10% of those surveyed said that inflation is having a ‘severe’ impact, meaning that they are struggling to maintain their current living standard. The survey also found that those on the lower end of the pay scale were the hardest hit, with 71% of those earning less than $40,000 annually reporting that inflation is becoming a problem, compared to only 29% for those earning over $100,000. The Blaze added that in October 2021, prices for consumer goods had increased by 6.2% compared to Oct 2020 and the UN’s Food and Agriculture Organization stated that in November, ‘commonly traded food commodities’ were 27.3% higher than in November 2020.

Only 51% of Evangelicals believe the Jews are God’s chosen people

I have to admit, I was a bit shocked by a recent poll conducted by Infinity Concepts and Grey Matter Research that discovered only 51% of Americans believe that the Jews are God’s chosen people. On the nay side, 29% said they did not believe the Jews were God’s chosen people and 19% said they were uncertain. Christian Headlines adds that of those who did not believe the Jews were God’s Chosen had varying reasons for holding this view: 17% believe the Jews have been replaced by the church, 10% believe the Jews were never God’s chosen people, and 2% checked the ‘other’ box, which I have no idea what that means. But this opinion about the Jews is slipping because a Lifeway poll in 2014 revealed that seven years ago, 66% of Evangelicals believed that the Jews are God’s chosen people. The Bible is very clear, that the Jews are God’s chosen people (Deuteronomy 7:7-9; Deuteronomy 32:9) It was also a bit shocking to see that nearly 20% believe that the church has replaced …
