Report: Islam Will Surpass Christianity as World’s Dominant Religion by End of Century  According to a recent report, the religion of Islam is growing rapidly and there will be more people who identify as Muslim than as Christians by the year 2070.

These statistics were revealed by the Pew Research Center which conducted a study titled “Muslims and Islam: Key Finding in the US and around the World.”

In 2010, there were about 2.17 billion Christians in the world and 1.6 billion Muslims, but the study found that, by 2070, there will be 2.92 billion Muslims and 2.76 billion Christians--and the number of Muslims will only continue to grow, making Islam likely to be the dominant world religion by the end of the century...

 Houston: Illegal immigrant gang members charged with 'satanic' killing, kidnapping appear in court Two known MS-13 gang members, formerly of El Salvador, appeared in Houston court Wednesday to hear charges against them in the kidnapping and torture of one victim and the "satanic" killing of a second.

Diego Hernandez-Rivera, 18, and leader of the group Miguel Alvarez-Flores, 22, also known as "Diabolico," were arrested Monday on charges of aggravated kidnapping in one case and murder in a second in the shooting death of an unidentified woman's body earlier this month on a Houston road...

53 U.S. Companies Join Legal Brief Asking Supreme Court to Allow Girl in Boys’ Restroom 53 U.S. companies have signed on to a legal brief asking the U.S. Supreme Court to rule in favor of a Virginia girl who identifies as a boy and wants to use the boys’ restroom at school.

“The [school district’s] policy discriminates against transgender children and violates their privacy. The policy forces children to use restrooms according to their ‘biological gender.’

This mandate targets transgender individuals in particular because they are the only people for whom ‘biological gender’ fails to correspond with gender identity—indeed, this disparity is a defining aspect of being transgender,” the brief reads in part.

“The policy places transgender youth—and only transgender youth—in the humiliating and painful position of having to publicly deny and disclaim their gender identity,” it asserts.
Participants in the brief include Amazon, Apple, eBay, Etsy, Microsoft, PayPal, Twitter, Spotify, IBM, Gap, LinkedIn, RetailMeNot and Yahoo...

The Eight Most Disgraceful Democrat Reactions to Trump's Speech
Democrats had a bad night on Tuesday. You could see it in their faces, as President Trump rose to the occasion and gave a magnificent address before a joint session of Congress. While most Democrats struggled to find a way to criticize the overwhelmingly well-received speech, more than a few of them failed spectacularly in that endeavor...

Disney Goes Gay in 'Beauty and the Beast' Remake
The highly-anticipated live-action remake of Beauty and the Beast will reportedly feature a gay character and Disney’s first-ever “exclusively gay moment” onscreen.

In an interview with Attitude magazine, the film’s director, Bill Condon, opened up about what the magazine described as the updated film’s “treasure trove of gay secrets.”...

What Does ‘The Shack’ Say About Your Pain? ...The Shack is fiction, but don’t think for a minute that Young isn’t clearly and intentionally writing theology. He’s the first to say so. Theology isn’t merely conveyed in abstract propositions. Dozens of literary genres make up the Christian Scriptures. It’s not only the apostle Paul who speaks for God, but also the Psalms and Proverbs and the apocalyptic writings. Jesus himself spoke in stories, called parables. Story is a powerful tool for teaching someone about God and his world. The fact that Young writes a novel doesn’t mean that he’s indifferent to how his readers think about God and their pain. In fact, the key to understanding why so many love his novel is it speaks so vividly about God and pain...

Challies: What Tolkien Did So Well, What We Do So Poorly  ...The characters in The Lord of the Rings know they are set within a wider drama that began ages prior and will continue ages hence. They are determined to act in ways that honor their forebears and leave a worthy example for their descendants. Their valor is motivated by their understanding that history has called them to this time, this place, and this set of circumstances. Their nobility is inseparable from their history. They speak and live as if every word of the mouth and every tap of the hammer will honor or dishonor those who have gone before and shame or bless those who will follow...

Thou Lamb of Calvary...

My faith looks up to Thee,
Thou Lamb of Calvary, Savior divine!
Now hear me while I pray, take all my guilt away,
O let me from this day be wholly Thine!

May Thy rich grace impart
Strength to my fainting heart, my zeal inspire!
As Thou hast died for me, O may my love to Thee,
Pure warm, and changeless be, a living fire!

While life’s dark maze I tread,
And griefs around me spread, be Thou my Guide;
Bid darkness turn to day, wipe sorrow’s tears away,
Nor let me ever stray from Thee aside.

When ends life’s transient dream,
When death’s cold sullen stream over me roll;
Blest Savior, then in love, fear and distrust remove;
O bear me safe above, a ransomed soul!
