Shroud of Turin gets scientific support; The demographic collapse in Europe...more

Shroud of Turin Clip Art
Shroud Jesus was allegedly wrapped in gets scientific support    The Shroud of Turin is stained with the blood of a torture victim, according to a new study which backs up claims it was used to bury Jesus Christ.

The linen cloth, believed to have been used to wrap the body of Jesus after his crucifixion, contains “nanoparticles” which are not typically found in the blood of a healthy person.

Elvio Carlino, a researcher at the Institute of Crystallography in Bari, Italy, says the tiny particles “have recorded a scenario of great suffering, whose victim was wrapped up in the funeral cloth.”

These particles had a “peculiar structure, size and distribution,” according to University of Padua professor Giulio Fanti...  image


Fish Fall From The Sky in Annual Miracle That Feeds the Poor  
In Honduras, the annual rain of fish has fallen. At least once a year, sometimes twice, usually around May or June, fish rain down from the heavens onto Yoro, Honduras. The locals call it Lluvia de Peces (downpour of fish) and claim it has been happening every year or about one hundred years. One rabbi claims this strange occurrence is a wakeup call warning of things to come.

No one has actually seen the fish falling from the sky. Simply put, after a heavy rain, the ground will suddenly be covered with fish. The residents collect the fish for their kitchen tables, but selling it is prohibited. Despite several attempts to discover the source of the strange phenomenon, scientists remain baffled.

The locals, however, have a simpler explanation: it’s a miracle...


Mark Steyn: The Biggest Issue of our Time

The demographic collapse in Europe ...I want to continue with the same theme by sharing a YouTube video made by commentator and author Mark Steyn. Steyn asks why what he calls "The Biggest Issue of our Time" is studiously ignored by those in power and by the media. That is, why isn't the demographic decline of Europe and its economic implications discussed more? Isn't the fact that so many of Europe's leaders are childless eeirly symbolic? Why isn't the future religious, cultural and ethnic makeup of Europe also discussed? What will happen when more cities in Europe are like Amsterdam where a majority of primary school aged children are Muslim?...

Why Premarital Sex Is Wrong
In 1960, most Americans held the traditional Christian belief, shared by Muslims and Jews, that premarital sex is wrong. Since then, public opinion has changed, and most people now think that premarital sex is okay, even healthy and good.

Our grandparents were right, and we are wrong. To see this today, we can add to their accumulated wisdom arguments that draw some premises from evolutionary psychology, the school of thought that explains human instincts as a set of strategies for the survival and propagation of our “selfish genes.” It has often been noticed that evolutionary psychology confirms many gender stereotypes; it turns out that it can also, when combined with some commonsense ethics, support a new defense of traditional moral views on sex...

No matter what we pray for...

No matter what we pray for, whether it be temporal or spiritual things, little things or great things, gifts for ourselves or for others, our prayers should really resolve themselves into a quiet waiting for the Lord in order to hear what it is that the Spirit desires to have us pray for at that particular time. ...O.

Christian Cake Maker Receiving Death Threats; Worshiping a Golden Calf on Sunday Morning...more

Christian Cake Maker Says He and His Family are Receiving Death Threats ...Although Phillips isn’t often vocal about the threats he receives, but recent threats have been particularly concerning.

One man called to say he knew exactly where the bakery was located and he knew that Phillips’ daughter worked there. He went on to list driving directions to the cakeshop where he said he would murder Phillips and his family...

Live Action Claims Twitter Banned Their Pro-Life Ads ...One tweet, from Rose’s personal account, said Planned Parenthood “about abortion, not women’s health care.” The tweet then linked to an all-text video that questioned Planned Parenthood’s health care services...

Worshiping a Golden Calf on Sunday Morning is Deceptively Easy 
All sin is idolatry because every sin is an exercise in trust of something or someone other than the one true God to satisfy, fulfill, or bless. It is not difficult to see how violations of commandments two through ten are automatic violations of commandment one. This truth reveals that the hottest “worship war” going is the one taking place daily in the sanctuary of our own hearts. But we must wage this war because none of us is a bystander to idol worship.

In Isaiah 44:12–17, we find a powerful and revelatory description of just how easy it is to slip into idolatry. We see in the passage that ironsmiths are simply working their tools over the coals, fashioning them with their hammers. Carpenters measure out cuts and notches. Artists capture the physical form in sketches and sculpture. Men chop down trees to build houses, then they plant more trees to replace them. They build fire, bake bread. Ah, look at what we’ve created...

WHEATON, IL: Anglican Diocese of South Carolina Joins The ACNA  
The Anglican Church in North America (ACNA) is planting one new church a week, Archbishop Foley Beach told delegates to the triennial gathering of some 1400 Anglicans, at Wheaton College, in the heartland of America's Bible belt. The ACNA also officially received The Anglican Diocese of South Carolina as the newest diocese with some 9,000 members - the largest of 31 dioceses in the orthodox Anglican body. The diocese broke away from the Episcopal Church over the authority of Scripture and TEC's embrace of homosexuality and gay marriage in defiance of Lambeth resolution 1.10.

The Rev. Canon Phil Ashey, of the ACNA, who introduced the vote, said the Diocese far exceeded canonical requirements for reception...

California's Bully Federalism; Fictitious Forgiveness...more

California's Bully Federalism: Travel Ban Seeks To Impose Its Policies On Other States    ...Except that California, in its superior wisdom and with its superior power, has decided that its laboratories are right and other state laboratories and cultures are wrong in this matter. California’s travel ban smacks of the sort of elitism—we will not even visit your state with our money—that has soured the electorate. And indeed, if I lived in one of those eight states, as I once did, which kind of power would I rather be subject to: federal power, where I at least have a voice and a vote, or California power, where I have no say at all? Is it really California’s place to tell Kansas what kind of policies it should have?...

Fictitious Forgiveness: Why We Cannot Forgive Ourselves ...The person who says, “I just can’t forgive myself,” may have ascended to the throne of judgment and declared himself to be his own judge. In this case, the expression “I can’t forgive myself” is equivalent to saying, “I’m in the role of Judge and will dispense forgiveness as I decide.” Such a person has convened the court, rendered a verdict upon himself, and now believes that he must grant the needed pardon. That’s the source of the problem. But, this is akin to an individual who commits a murder serving as his own prosecutor, jury, and judge. He convenes the court. He adjudicates himself for himself. But it doesn’t work this way. This is all rooted in a high view of self.

And this tactic will not solve the problem. Man is hard-wired to know that he is not the Absolute. The Bible teaches that God alone is Judge (Ps. 7:11, 50:4-6). Moral violations are first and foremost against him (cf. Ps. 51:4). Thus, the self-forgiveness dilemma is one of fictitious forgiveness. The real problem is a failure to embrace God as Judge...

UK Jewish school risks closure for refusal to teach LGBT issues   An all-girls Ultra-Orthodox (haredi) school in London risks closure after failing a third inspection in the space of just over a year by the Office of Standards in Education, Children’s Services and Skills (commonly referred to as Ofsted).

These failures stem in large part from the school’s refusal to teach about a range of LGBT-related issues including homosexuality and gender reassignment...


CNN’s Month-Long Nightmare
The last 30 days have been nothing short of a public relations nightmare for CNN.

The network is reeling after a brutal stretch that has seen two hosts taken off-air, one story retracted and another rewritten, accusations of staged protests, the resignations of three key employees and most recently, an ongoing series of undercover videos meant to portray CNN as misleading the public about the Trump-Russia stories that have dominated media coverage of the president so far.

Late on Tuesday, May 30, TMZ published images of CNN’s New Years Eve co-host, Kathy Griffin, taking part in a photoshoot with a mock severed head of President Trump. The story quickly blew up. Influential news aggregator Matt Drudge placed CNN’s ties to Griffin front and center on his site, the Drudge Report....

Activity at the sun set to 'change form' as solar minimum approaches   The sun is heading into a period known as solar minimum, during which activity at the surface will ‘change form.’
In this time, certain types of activity, such as sunspots and solar flares will drop – but, it’s also expected to bring the development of long-lived phenomena including coronal holes.

According to NASA, solar minimum could also enhance the effects of space weather, potentially disrupting communications and navigation systems, and even causing space junk to ‘hang around.’...

Arrest made after Ten Commandments monument at Arkansas Capitol toppled, shattered   A 6-foot-tall stone Ten Commandments monument installed Tuesday on the Arkansas Capitol grounds was toppled less than 24 hours later after a 32-year-old Arkansas man drove a vehicle into the statue, apparently while streaming the act live on Facebook, officials said.

Chris Powell, a spokesman with the secretary of state's office, said he was called early Wednesday and told a man drove a vehicle through the monument. That driver — identified in an arrest report as Michael Tate Reed of Van Buren — was arrested by Capitol police shortly after, Powell said. News reports indicate Reed was previously accused of destroying a Ten Commandments monument in Oklahoma...

Albert Mohler: Religious Freedom and Discrimination; Chastity, family life and the future of religious freedom...more

Albert Mohler: Religious Freedom and Discrimination: Why the Debate Continues    This is a first for me—writing a book review while flying over the northern reaches of the Atlantic Ocean. I’m returning to the United States after responsibilities in the United Kingdom, speaking mostly to pastors and other Christian leaders. Everywhere I went, from central London to rural Kent, the same urgent question was asked: “Can religious liberty survive the LGBTQ moral revolution?”

Winston Churchill famously believed in the basic cultural unity of those he called the “English-speaking peoples,” meaning, most specifically, Britain and the United States. We’ve historically shared a basic commitment to moral truths including human dignity and liberty, and these commitments have been enshrined in our laws and social life. But Christians in both countries now face the prospect of a disastrous collision between the new sexual liberty prized by the LGBTQ revolution and religious liberty—long recognized in the United States as the first and most foundational freedom.

Long before the Obergefell decision legalized same-sex marriage, the inevitability of the collision was anticipated by both sides in the debate. LGBTQ advocates had already made clear their intention to advance from the legalization of same-sex marriage to press for the inclusion of sexual orientation and gender identity (SOGI) in all relevant civil rights laws and regulations. Even then, the collision with religious liberty was inevitable. Even then, we were warned religious liberty would have to give way to newly constructed and judicially mandated sexual liberties...

Chastity, family life and the future of religious freedom   ...Chastity is now central to the public argument for religious freedom because such families need their freedom of association and freedom of action to raise the next generation to live the same strong family life. They need freedom to teach their own way of life: marriage till death do us part, and raising their children to do the same. Much as the Amish fought and won their freedom of association and way of life, so too other religious communities are now finding they too must fight and win a freedom which they had assumed was theirs without asking. It had been so. It is no longer.

If we want our religious freedom we have to be able to make the argument for teaching chastity as a way of life, not as a “risk reduction strategy”. Chaste family life is easy to defend in the public debate because it is far superior to all other ways, by any measure of human thriving. Teenagers (who have yet to experience life and learn its hard lessons by experience) need to understand that there are lifelong consequences for “sowing wild oats”, as the most important chart in all the social sciences makes clear...

111 terminally ill patients took their own lives in first 6 months of California right-to-die law ...A snapshot of the patients who took advantage of the law mirrors what’s been seen in Oregon, which was the first state to legalize the practice nearly two decades ago. Though California is far more diverse than Oregon, the majority of those who have died under aid-in-dying laws in both states were white, college-educated cancer patients older than 60...

Petya ransomware slams Windows PCs shut in massive attack   ...The malware forces an infected PC to reboot as soon as it finishes encrypting files, so you'll see the ransom demands as soon as possible. Researchers at Recorded Future said there's also a hidden Trojan on Petya that steals victims' usernames and passwords. 

This is the second global ransomware attack in the last two months. It follows the WannaCry outbreak that ensnared more than 200,000 computers, locking up hospitals, banks and universities. Like WannaCry, the GoldenEye and Petya attacks affect only computers running the Windows operating systems.

Microsoft released patches for all Windows operating systems after the global outbreak, but people who've updated their computers could still be affected, according to Anomali, a threat intelligence company. That's because Petya can also spread through Office documents, taking advantage of yet another vulnerability and combining it with similar wormholes a la WannaCry...

Oregon House Kills Bill Which Allows Starving Mentally Ill Patients The Oregon state House recently killed a piece of legislation which was widely condemned by pro-life groups. According to LifeNews, the bill (designated Senate Bill 494) would have allowed for the starving and dehydration of mentally ill patients past the point of death. Though first introduced as a “simple update” to existing to Oregon’s current healthcare, the bill removed vital safeguards which put patients (particularly those with dementia) at risk. After being effectively struck down by the House Judiciary committee, the pro-life group Oregon Right to Life issued this statement,

“We are so thankful to our pro-life Oregon senators who stood so strongly against SB 494 and gave momentum to the opposition, which our pro-life House representatives then use to help send SB 494 to a dead end. Had this bill become law it would have been used to end the lives of innocent Oregonians who are not in the active dying stage but are afflicted with mental illness. Thousands of Oregonians wrote to their legislators expressing horror about this bill that exemplifies just how extreme Oregon’s politicians have become.”...

New study bolsters Trump’s claim of rampant vote fraud    A new study has concluded that as many as 5.7 million noncitizens may have voted in the 2008 election won by Barack Obama, giving credence to President Trump’s much-maligned claim that more than 3 million illegal-alien voters cost him the nationwide popular vote last November.

A research group in New Jersey, Just Facts, announced it found that after examining post-election polling data, the number of noncitizens voting illegally in U.S. elections is likely far greater than previous estimates, the Washington Times reported...

Trump and His Generals
Donald Trump earned respect from the Washington establishment for appointing three of the nation’s most accomplished generals to direct his national-security policy: James Mattis (secretary of defense), H. R. McMaster (national-security adviser), and John Kelly (secretary of homeland security).

In the first five months of the Trump administration, the three generals — along with Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, the former Exxon Mobil CEO — have already recalibrated America’s defenses...
