Most of the news items below illustrate the challenges Christians will face in a world that's growing increasingly hostile to Biblical values. We hope the information will encourage you to stand firm in God's Truth -- no matter how great the pressure to compromise.

  Persecuted Christians

God's Word  ~  Trusting God  ~  Topical Scripture List  ~  Names of God  ~  Chronologies

"Show me Your ways, O Lord; teach me Your paths. Lead me in Your truth and teach me, for You are the God of my salvation. On You I wait all the day." Psalm 25:4-5
 

"Please pray for God's people around the world!  As in Europe,  Christian faith is  fading in America, while persecution is spreading in many other parts of the world. Countless Christians would rather face death than deny their beloved Lord!

 

Transforming America. Atheist Seeks to Use Religious Freedom Law to Remove ‘In God We Trust’ From U.S. Currency: "...atheist Michael Newdow, who has filed numerous suits challenging the mixture of God and government, first submitted a complaint in the Southern District of New York in March 2013, asserting that the motto violates the Establishment Clause of the United States Constitution as it serves to proselytize unbelievers.

    "But in September of that year, U.S. District Court Judge Harold Baer, Jr. ... rejected Newdow’s arguments, opining that 'the inclusion of the motto on U.S. currency . . . does not violate the Establishment Clause [of the Constitution].'...

    "[History] In 1956, Congress passed a resolution making 'In God We Trust' the national motto, which was again upheld by the U.S. House of Representatives in 2011 by a 396-9 vote." See Real Conspiracies

 

Transforming America. Secret Meeting in London to "End Cash": "Economist Martin Armstrong claims there is a 'secret meeting to end cash' set to take place in London before the end of the month involving representatives from the ECB and the Federal Reserve. Armstrong...expressed his shock that no news outlet has reported on this upcoming conference. 'We better keep one eye open at night for this birth of a cashless society that is coming in much faster than expected. Why the secret meeting? Something does not smell right here,' concludes Armstrong." See The emerging New World Order

 

Video: Muslim world reacts to Obama's latest speech: [My comment: Obama makes a fool of himself as he proclaim that climate change constitutes a serious threat to global security. Notice how the Muslim listeners respond to his lie. Knowing that 'climate change' is a lie, they laugh at his ridiculous and outdated claim!" See Green Lies and Deceptive Science 

 

Faith. Limbaugh: American Left Has Made Christianity Its No. 1 Enemy: "I think mainstream Christianity is the target.... Christianity has been the biggest enemy of the American left.... Christianity is the number one enemy of these people.' ...“...they’ve made friends with militant Islam,' Rush went on.

     “The left will not stand for any criticism of Islam, right? You start drawing cartoons of the prophet, they’re the first to jump on your case, right? Democrats and the left, they're out condemning any criticism of Islam.' ... In their mind, their enemy is Christianity.”

 

Persecution. Egypt: Muslim convert to Christianity rots in prison: "...he has been subject to physical and verbal abuse, from both prison guards and fellow inmates on account of his 'apostasy' from and 'blasphemy' against Islam. He has been denied a Bible and has not had eyeglasses since they were intentionally broken some time ago.

     "...according to his lawyer, Karam Ghobrial, the real reason his client is being held and tortured in prison has to do with what made Bishoy notorious some years back in the first place: his audacity not only to convert to Christianity, but to try formally to change his religious identity from Muslim to Christian on his ID card—prompting much public animosity and death threats against him at the time." See Persecution Scriptures

 

Migration. Democrat Senators urge Obama to “dramatically increase” Muslim refugee flow to US: "A group of 14 Democrat senators has written a letter to President Obama urging him to 'dramatically increase' the number of Syrian refugees being resettled into American cities and towns. They say the U.S. needs to take in at least 65,000 Syrians as permanent refugees over the next year-and-a-half....

    "More than 3.5 million Syrians are registered with the United Nations as refugees, and the U.N. wants to assign about 350,000 of them to so-called “third-party countries.” See Global Migration

 

Migration. Iraq warns jihad terror ‘spillover’ will affect entire world: "This is not an Iraqi civil war. It is a much larger conflict than that.... But in the West, our governments are pretending that the ever-increasing number of Muslims plotting jihad attacks in accord with calls from the Islamic State, and the also increasing number of Muslims trying to join the Islamic State, do not collectively constitute any manner of challenge that need be met with anything other than 'outreach” and assurances that they’re aware that the Islamic State has nothing to do with Islam."

 

Faith. The Decline of Christian America: "'This is a Christian nation,' said the Supreme Court in 1892. 'America was born a Christian nation,' echoed Woodrow Wilson. Harry Truman affirmed it: 'This is a Christian nation.' But in 2009, Barack Hussein Obama begged to differ: 'We do not consider ourselves a Christian nation'....

     "Whereas 86 percent of Americans in 1990 identified as Christians, by 2007, that was down to 78 percent. Today only 7 in 10 say they are Christians. But the percentage of those describing themselves as atheists, agnostics or nonbelievers has risen to 23.... 'Those in the mainline Protestant churches — Presbyterians, Lutherans, Methodists, Episcopalians — have plummeted from 50 percent of the U.S. population in 1958 to 14 percent today....

     "The decline in Christian identity is greatest among the young. While 85 percent of Americans born before 1945 still call themselves Christians, only 57 percent of those born after 1980 do." (I wonder how many of those who call themselves Christians today really understand what that means.)

 

What kind of war?  How the US Supports the Islamic State (ISIS): "While the US claims it has 'accidentally' allowed weapons to fall into the hands of ISIS terrorists, in reality, the US has been arming, funding, and aiding ISIS and its terrorist affiliates either directly or through Saudi, Qatari, Jordanian, or Turkish proxies since at least 2011." (Please pray with me for God's peace and protection)

 

Western Conspiracy?  Secret Pentagon Report: How Washington Fostered ISIS To Topple Assad/Shiite Alliance: "Secret Pentagon report reveals West saw ISIS as strategic asset.... The revelations contradict the official line of Western government on their policies in Syria, and raise disturbing questions about secret Western support for violent extremists abroad, while using the burgeoning threat of terror to justify excessive mass surveillance and crackdowns on civil liberties at home....

     "US Vice President Joe Biden, for instance, admitted last year that Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Qatar and Turkey had funneled hundreds of millions of dollars to Islamist rebels in Syria that metamorphosed into ISIS. ....the entire covert strategy was sanctioned and supervised by the US, Britain, France, Israel and other Western powers....

     "The revelation from an internal US intelligence document that the very US-led coalition supposedly fighting ‘Islamic State’ today, knowingly created ISIS in the first place, raises troubling questions about recent government efforts to justify the expansion of state anti-terror powers."

 

Threat of War?  War Inevitable unless US Backs Down: China State Paper: "A war between the United States and China is 'inevitable' unless Washington stops demanding Beijing halt its construction projects in the South China Sea, a Chinese state-owned newspaper warns. Washington accuses Beijing of undergoing a massive “land reclamation” program in the Spratly archipelago of the South China Sea, and says China’s territorial claims of the man-made islands could further militarize the region.

     “If the United States’ bottom line is that China has to halt its activities, then a US-China war is inevitable in the South China Sea,' The Global Times, an influential newspaper owned by the ruling Communist Party’s official newspaper the People’s Daily, said..."

 

Moral Corruption. Obama to 5-Year-Old Gay Marriage Advocate: 'Couldn't Agree More!': "Five-year-old Yasmeen Faruqui didn't feel like doing her homework. She insisted she wanted to write to President Obama instead. And he wrote back.

      "'Please stop war for our world, instead have a meeting,' reads Yasmeen's handwritten note....  'Please give a speech to tell everyone they can marry who they want.'

     "Tell your niece I really like her letter. Couldn't agree more!" the commander-in-chief replied Friday on Twitter....

     "Yasmeen, who's set to participate in a family member's same-sex wedding ceremony this fall, was bothered when her playmates insisted 'boys can't marry boys.' 'I don't think that's wrong,' she told her mom." See Global War on Christian Values

The War is real.  Obama's Media supporters growing nervous about ISIS: "Liberals are clearly disturbed by what they’re seeing, and perhaps they’re starting to worry that the mess in the Middle East will irreparably tarnish Obama’s legacy. ...they’re trying to get his attention and let him know he can’t spin ISIS off the front pages by chirping that his non-war strategy is working out great, and pretending 'climate change' is the great enemy faced by the U.S. military, while the Islamic State is knocking over cities in three different countries." See Washington's Farewell Address

 

Hillary's own words.  Quote of the day, no, of the week, make that a month, yet it probably is quote of the year! No, DECADE: “My accomplishments as Secretary of State? Well, I'm glad you asked! My proudest accomplishment in which I take the most pride, mostly because of the opposition it faced early on, you know… the remnants of prior situations and mindsets that were too narrowly focused in a manner whereby they may have overlooked the bigger picture and we didn’t do that and I’m proud of that. Very proud. I would say that’s a major accomplishment.”

     "Could someone please tell me what she just said? And she is running for President?"

 

Signs of the Times. Hezbollah shows off its tunnels, claims it is prepared for war with Israel: "Hezbollah shows off its tunnels, claims it is prepared for war with Israel. As the militant Lebanese organization is mired in Syria's war, it invites a reporter to its fortifications and upgraded tunnels, emphasizing that the border with Israel is still the central frontline." See Jews in Holy Land? What Jews? 


"Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? ... Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us..." Romans 8:35, 37

"Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go." Joshua 1:9

When enemy forces threatened to attack God's people, [King] Jehoshaphat simply turned His eyes and heart to His faithful Lord and expressed his faith:

“O Lord God of our fathers, are You not God in heaven, and do You not rule over all the kingdoms of the nations, and in Your hand is there not power and might, so that no one is able to withstand You?
     ...we have no power against this great multitude that is coming against us; nor do we know what to do, BUT OUR EYES ARE UPON YOU." 2 Chronicles 20:6, 12
