Danish medical chief says Omicron marks the end of the pandemic, suggests it may be over in 2 months

With Omicron proving to be a much milder form of COVID, Tyra Grove Krause, Denmark’s chief medical officer, stated its arrival marks the end of the COVID pandemic. She predicted it could be over in a couple of months.

Cory Brooks: The problem of fatherless children in America

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.

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 …

Why evil things happen in the world

A complaint commonly heard today is why does an all powerful God allow evil to happen on earth. Though this argument is often used by atheists to disprove the existence of God, Pew Research Center recently surveyed Americans to discover if the average person blames God when bad things happen? Its survey of 6,500 Americans in September, that included nearly 1,500 Evangelicals, found that the majority do not blame God when terrible things take place, such as the recent COVID pandemic that saw millions die. According to Christianity Today, the survey revealed several interesting results: 86% of Americans believe (44%) or somewhat believe (42%) that ‘sometimes bad things just happen.’ 70% of Americans believe that bad things are consequences of our own decisions; 70% also believe that bad things happen because of the way societies are structured; 70% believe men have a free will that allows them to act contrary to what God wants us to act; and 80% believe in the Biblical God (58%) or a higher power (22%), but say that suffering is …

Poll: The vast majority believe governments should not force Americans to violate their religious beliefs

A recent poll by Summit.org, found that the vast majority of Americans believe in religious freedom, despite the messages we are receiving from the mainstream media and some politicians, that Christians must bow to secular authority and opinions. The poll, conducted by McLaughlin and Associates, asked 1,000 Americans, who were likely voters, if they agreed with the statement that government has the right to force religious people to participate in practices that would violate their religious beliefs. Seventy-five percent said that the government does not have the right to force a person to violate their religious beliefs, and only 16% believed that government should be able to do this. Of course, once politics were thrown into the mix, the number varied, with 80% of Republicans and 78% of Independents stating the government does not have the right to violate a person’s religious beliefs. While still in a clear majority, only 64% of Democrats held the same position. And in a second question, people were asked if they agreed with a statement by America’s founders “that …

Poll: 60% of vaccinated Americans will ban unvaccinated family from Christmas gatherings

A recent survey conducted by OnePoll discovered that vaccines will be a divisive issue this Christmas, with 63% of vaccinated Americans stating that they will be banning unvaccinated family and relatives from Christmas gatherings. Study Finds reported that the poll, conducted on Nov 2, 2021, found that 65% of Americans are full vaccinated. The survey also revealed: 58% of the fully vaccinated stated they have already cut contact with unvaccinated family and friends. 49% of unvaccinated Americans have broken off contact with vaccinated family members due to conflicts over the vaccines. 22% of the unvaccinated report that they have already been banned from family gatherings. 43% of unvaccinated said they are worried about losing their jobs or being required to pay higher health premiums. 53% of both vaccinated and unvaccinated state the issue has become politicized. 56% believe there will be arguments at Christmas gatherings about vaccinations.
