Did the New York Times see a conspiracy theory one day too early?

It is not surprising that the vast majority of Americans don’t trust the mainstream media. In fact, a 2021 poll revealed only 29% of Americans stated they completely trusted the legacy media. In this story about the New York Times, Breitbart explains why no one trusts them. Coincidentally, it involved two stories on Communist China, an American-based voting software company and the data of American election workers. One was published on Oct 3, 2022, and the second on Oct 4, 2022. Breitbart provides the details: On October 3, the New York Times published an article by reporter Stuart Thompson titled “How a Tiny Elections Company Became a Conspiracy Theory Target,” in which he claimed that “election deniers” were targeting Konnech, a Michigan election software firm with just 21 U.S. employees, and had developed a theory with “threadbare evidence” that the company had tied to the Chinese Communist Party and had given the Chinese government backdoor access to the personal data of around two million poll workers in the United States. Thompson suggested that such beliefs were ridiculous …

Woman holding an iPhone in 1860?

Ferdinand Georg Waldmüller’s painting, “The Expected One,” shows a woman in a purple dress strolling down a path holding something in her hand. Waldmüller who was from Austria lived between 1793 – 1865 and painted the young girl in 1860. The painting actually gets its name from the young man who is hiding in the foreground near the path holding a flower for the girl. Recently several viewing the painting online are convinced the young woman is scrolling through an iPhone, and certainly, it is eerily similar to what we see every day walking down our streets. Of course, along with that comes suggestions by those with a sci-fi bend that this painting is evidence of time travel. But it is a sign of how much things have changed. As the experts point out, most people in 1860 would have known exactly what that woman was holding. It was a prayer book that contained prayers, Bible verses, liturgy, and devotionals that people could recite privately or even together with others. While some commentators sarcastically asked …

The confluence of Technology and COVID restrictions

A confluence is defined as several flowing streams meeting or gathering together at one point and merging together. It can refer to actual rivers joining or as I will use it in this article, ideas converging at the same moment in time. Over the last couple of years, there has been a convergence of several ideas that may be paving the way for what the Apostle John saw emerging in the end times the mark of the Beast that would be used to control people’s ability to buy or sell. The first stream, the chip Most recently, CBN had an article about a popular TikTok star, known as ‘The Chip Girl,’ with over three million followers, who has been showing the world the benefits of having a chip inserted in your hand. Burgundy Waller, who lives in Las Vegas, Nevada, is married to a man she describes as a ‘tech genius.’ Two years ago Burgundy had a chip her husband developed, inserted into her hand. In her TikTok videos, Burgundy shows the benefit that the …

Allegations Britain is stripping Canada’s old-growth forests

With its move to green energy, primarily wind and solar, one of Britain’s power plants has also converted a coal power plant to wood in order to go green and produce power. The BBC alleges that one of the sources of its wood is environmentally important ‘old-growth’ forests in British Columbia, Canada. The BBC explains: One of the Drax forests is a square mile, including large areas that have been identified as rare, old-growth forest. The provincial government of British Columbia says old-growth forests are particularly important and that companies should put off logging them. Drax’s own responsible sourcing policy says it “will avoid damage or disturbance” to primary and old-growth forest. However, the latest satellite pictures show Drax is now cutting down the forest. READ: Drax: UK power station owner cuts down primary forests in Canada It has been a busy couple of years for Canada as the country supplies the world with needed commodities. This included some of the world’s deadliest pathogens that were sent to the Wuhan Institute of Virology from Canada’s …

Russian Orthodox leader says Russian soldiers killed in Ukraine invasion will be absolved of their sins

In what can only be described as a bizarre move, the Russian Orthodox Church is essentially offering indulgences to any Russian soldiers who die during Putin’s invasion of Ukraine, Premier Christian News reports. Patriarch Kirill, 75, is the head of the Russian Orthodox Church and in a sermon that he preached on Sunday, Sept 25, 2022, he stated that any Russian soldiers killed during the invasion will be absolved of their sins. According to Kirill’s theology, these soldiers no longer need Christ and can die for their own sins and receive eternal life. In his sermon Kirill stated: “… if a person dies in the performance of this duty, then they have undoubtedly committed an act equivalent to sacrifice. They will have sacrificed themselves for others. And therefore, we believe that this sacrifice washes away all the sins that a person has committed.” Of course, Russian soldiers should be a little concerned about this meaningless promise. Not only is it completely unBiblical, but the Russian Orthodox Church had tried similar tricks earlier, with unsuccessful results. …

Can dreams be a form of evangelism? The conversion of an ex-Muslim suggests they can

A Christian man, who had converted to Islam, turned back to Christ after people prayed for God to send a dream of Jesus, CBN reports. Raised in a Christian home, Mike Westerfield considered himself a religious man. He had attended a Bible college and occasionally preached at his local church, but his faith was challenged when he started visiting some Muslims at a local prison in Florida. In particular, this group challenged Westerfield about his belief in the Trinity and began to give him Islamic literature. This eventually led to Westerfield becoming a Muslim. This was not a shallow conversion. Over the next 12 years, Westerfield actually attended an Islamic university with the intention of becoming an Imam. But despite his conversion, Westerfield would eventually start questioning some of the things that he was discovering in Islam, which he described as “deception and lies” in an interview with IfoundtheTruth.com. This led to him reexamining Jesus. He turned to several apologetic groups, such as Lee Strobel, and Abdu Murray, an ex-Muslim, who had become a Christian …

The Real Mary Magdalene

By Eric Lyons

The name “Mary” appears 54 times in the New Testament. There is Mary, the mother of Jesus (Matthew 1:18), Mary Magdalene (Luke 8:2), and Mary, the mother of James and Joses (Mark 15:40), who is likely the same as the “other” Mary (Matthew 27:56,61; 28:1) and “the wife of Clopas” (John 19:25).

Are universities modern re-education camps for the left?

A survey of Canadian university professors conducted by Leger on behalf of the Bay Observer uncovered some disturbing results. It seems that they are functioning as little more than morbid re-education camps popularized by communist regimes. The Bay Observer explains: We conducted a survey from March 3 to 17 (administered by Leger) with the aim of understanding how the general public and professors themselves think about the role of universities and university professors in Canada today. Our survey shows that Canadian universities are seriously deficient in viewpoint diversity and have instead become politically homogenous institutions. Professors vote overwhelmingly for parties of the left and 88 percent self-identity as left-leaning, with only 9 percent voting for conservative parties (compared to 38 percent more generally). Further, it seems as though political skew is increasing in Canadian universities but a lack of good data prevents us from seeing by how much.[…] When we asked if professors would be worried if their political opinions became known, almost 88 percent of left-leaning professors were either not very worried or not …

Eugenics: Should we breed the best people?

Are you well-bred? Do you know people who are ill-bred? Do you respect your betters? Does your family get the respect that it deserves? This is another line of questioning: The first questions come from popular thinking that is more than a hundred years old. The last two are modern. Where does thinking like this come from, besides someone’s imagination? One old source is Social Darwinism. When Charles Darwin published his ideas about “The Origin of the Species” he looked back in time, to the beginning of life. Darwin’s ideas were retrospective, he directed us back in time, to origins. He had a theory about where we came from. Charles Darwin’s ideas were very popular, and evolutionary thinking came to us like a revolution. I believe one reason for the popularity of Darwin’s backward-looking ideas, is that some people looked forward. In England, for example, people saw classes in society; as superior upper classes, who were born to rule, and the inferior lower, and working classes, who needed to know their place. That is ancient …
