Christian News Update

Down below, there is a list of various stories circulating around the internet regarding Christianity and some of the trials they face and some of the successes. As I present these stories I will try and report based off what I saw through different sources and give a quick snippet of the story as unbiased as I can and then I would like to give a few things that I noticed while researching these stories. These are the stories that I have chosen to cover this week.



Some Notes:

First of all, being a citizen of the U.S. I am excited to see some of the bills that are being passed in the midst of this national pandemic that protect the right to assemble, freedom of speech, and religious freedoms. It is encouraging to see direction in the midst of these crazy times and seemingly how God is working through the government that has been ordained (Romans 13:1). When reading about the situation going on at Seattle Pacific University, I had a similar opinion to a teacher that I had read about that is within the Southern Baptist Convention. She begged the question on whether or not they upheld their policy in the first place by hiring a part-time professor who is homosexual. Regardless, if that is the position taking by the university, which I completely affirm as a great Biblical standard, they have the right to do so and they should uphold this standard higher if that is their intention. As a Christian leader, I was also disappointed to discover that there is an advocacy board set in place by the Planned Parenthood organization with the sole intention of indoctrinating people through the utilization of so-called clergy. Abortion is instituted murder and contrary to Godly spirituality. It reminds me of the words of Isaiah in Isaiah 5:20 which states, “Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!” This Scripture depicts the nature of God as being against the perverse and double minded person. I hope the list that is posted is encouragement to avoid the teachings of these people and to cling to the things that are Holy and pure deriving from Scripture.

Internationally, I wanted the efforts of our Christian brethren to be noted. Starting with the 8 missionaries who were beaten and kidnapped. This kidnapping occurred on the way to tell others about the love of Jesus and to share the only Gospel that saves. This case, the story of Nabil Habashi Salama, and the struggles within the Canadian church should signify to the American Church that as Christians we are not impervious to the attacks of the Devil. This is even when we are fulfilling our Christian purpose and witnessing the power of the Gospel of Jesus Christ above all. Paul tells Timothy in regards to prayer that, “For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour; Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth” (1 Timothy 2:3-4). This is a primary purpose of the Christian and the will of God. On that same note, God does not promise to protect our physical interests as these things are all vanity. God does promise that His peace which passes all understanding shall keep our hearts and minds in Christ Jesus. The hearts and minds are much more of a concern and important in nourishing the soul.
