EU plays games with Canada’s vaccines

Who was St. Valentine?

With Valentine’s Day around the corner, this might be a good time to look at the history of the person for whom this day commemorating love was named. Though St. Valentine is recognized as an official Saint in the Roman Catholic Church, there is a bit of confusion over who this person actually was. Over the years, several people have been considered as a possible candidate for St Valentine, and part of this is due to the meaning of the name. In the Latin, the name Valentine, means strong or powerful, so it was a popular name for men and even women. Of course, odder still, how did a name associated with power and strength become linked with love. Well, there is one man who leads the pack for consideration as St. Valentine and that involves a person who lived in Rome around 270 AD. This individual sticks out because there are a couple of historical references that point to this man, giving him a slight edge. This Valentine was serving in a religious capacity …

Turn off your Zoom kitten filter

A lawyer from Texas, got a lesson about Zoom filters. Apparently, his child had used Zoom earlier and used a filter to appear as a speaking kitten. However, in this instance the lawyer was speaking with a judge and another lawyer in a civil forfeiture case and ended up speaking as a fluffy white kitten and had no idea how to turn the feature off. Apparently, this is not the first time it happened. Last year, a woman appeared as a potato in her Zoom meeting.

WHO fails to learn from history?

Remember that old saying that those who don’t learn from history are doomed to repeat it. While, that may define the World Health Organization (WHO). Earlier this year, WHO went to China to find out the origins of COVID and concluded this week that it probably did not originate in Communist China’s level 4 virus lab in Wuhan, the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

Do Not Despise Prophecy

By Dr. Michael L. Brown Did you ever wonder why Paul wrote, “Do not despise prophecies,” or as the New International Version translates, “Do not treat prophecies with contempt” (1 Thess. 5:20)? Why would any Christian be tempted to despise prophetic words? The answer is that prophecy can be obscure. Or confusing. Or complex. Or it can appear to be inaccurate, only to come to pass differently than we expected or have a different application than we understood. Or it can make us uncomfortable, revealing areas we would rather leave covered over. And in the case of New Testament prophecy, when every believer can potentially prophesy, it often needs correction and guidance. It is sometimes flatly wrong, with people claiming inspiration without really having it. That’s why Paul’s full exhortation included these injunctions: “Do not quench the Spirit. Do not treat prophecies with contempt but test them all; hold on to what is good” (1 Thess. 5:19-21). Today, when the failed Trump prophecies have gained much notoriety and when prophecy itself is getting a bad …
