  • Iran’s Attack on Israel Was Certainly Unprecedented, But Was It Biblically Prophetic?

    The attack of Iran on Israel on April 13, 2024 was unprecedented. We know that Iran has sponsored terrorism for a long time, working with proxy groups like the Houthis, Hezbollah, and, of course, Hamas on that horrific attack on the Jewish homeland on October 7th—where 1,200 people were butchered and murdered. It is unbelievable. And there are still so many being held as hostages. But when Iran directly attacked Israel, that is literally without precedent and it has Bible prophecy significance. Now, we had this solar eclipse recently and some people thought that that was a sign of the...

    WASHINGTON — Biden administration officials are concerned that Iran may be planning to hit targets inside Israel in retaliation for the Israeli airstrikes in Syria this week that killed several senior Iranian officials, according to two U.S. officials. The officials said any retaliation inside of Israel is expected to focus on military or intelligence targets, rather than civilians. They also said the administration has begun considering options for how to respond to various possible retaliatory moves by Iran. Iran has threatened to retaliate, saying the building destroyed was a consular building and therefore was an attack on Iran itself.

    MSNBC host Al Sharpton said Friday on “The ReidOut” that former President Donald Trump doing an advertisement for the “God Bless the USA Bible” was “insulting” to those who believe. Host Joy Reid said, “Talk to me about Trump. Trump is not a Christian. I mean, he’s not a religious man at all. You know him, he was not religious.”

    MEMPHIS, Tenn. — A woman who is three months pregnant says she was carjacked at gunpoint after a crash, but an AirTag hidden inside a Bible helped her track down her vehicle. Zaliyah Hughes said she was headed to Tops Bar-B-Que on Summer Avenue when a light-colored Nissan crashed into the passenger side of her Hyundai Sonata at the intersection of Summer and Holmes. “I was going through the light, and they were supposed to stop. They were speeding and hit me,” said Hughes.”Once they hit me, the man who had a black mask on already had his gun pointed...

    A trans woman has been helped to breastfeed her grandchild, in what is thought to be a world first. The unidentified 50-year-old was helped to express up to 30ml of milk at a time, after a four week course of hormone treatment. Researchers from Duke University reported the woman ‘lactated for a total of two weeks’ and was able to feed the four-month-old baby. The motivation for inducing lactation was to create a ‘bond from breastfeeding that she had not been able to experience with her own five children’. She was moved to tears by the experience, which she said...

    Amidst all the liberal outrage over NBC's hiring of Ronna McDaniel, CNN offered an example this morning of what passes for a perfectly acceptable revolving-door hire. CNN commentator Ashley Allison was on a CNN This Morning panel to discuss Trump's hawking of a God Bless America Bible. Allison was the National Coalitions Director for Biden-Harris 2020 and deputy director and senior policy advisor for the Obama White House Office of Public Engagement, where she strategized on running campaigns during "the Resistance." Her bio features her commitment to "equity."Allison displayed a combination of fearmongering and ignorance about America's founding. Allison claimed...

    NEW YORK (AP) — Former President Donald Trump is now selling Bibles as he runs to return to the White House. Trump, who became the presumptive Republican nominee earlier this month, released a video on his Truth Social platform on Tuesday urging his supporters to buy the “God Bless the USA Bible,” which is inspired by country singer Lee Greenwood’s patriotic ballad. Trump takes the stage to the song at each of his rallies and has appeared with Greenwood at events. “Happy Holy Week! Let’s Make America Pray Again. As we lead into Good Friday and Easter, I encourage you...

    Former Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) took aim at former President Trump for launching an initiative to sell Bibles on Tuesday and encouraged him to read what the Bible says about adultery. “Happy Holy Week, Donald. Instead of selling Bibles, you should probably buy one,” Cheney wrote in a post on X, the platform formerly known as Twitter, in response to a screenshot of Trump’s Bible pitch on Truth Social. “And read it, including Exodus 20:14,” Cheney added, referring to the verse that commands, “Thou shalt not commit adultery.” In his latest effort to raise funds, Trump pitched his “God Bless...

    Movie Review: "When a young Jewish orphan girl named Hadassah became the Queen of Persia sometime around 481 B.C., she had no idea that, as Queen Esther, she would be used by God to prevent the extinction of her entire race. It’s a story found in the Old Testament Book of Esther, and it’s one of the Bible’s most treasured sources of inspiration and comfort since it brilliantly illustrates God’s divine providence and His personal care and protection for His Chosen People". One Night With the King, then, has a lot to live up to.

    Australians made $746 million in digital payments in 2018—that number soared to $93 billion in 2022.. A new all-in-one mobile app will offer what its developers claim is Australia’s first end-to-end digital banking platform for the country’s 2.4 million businesses with fewer than 10 employees. The announcement comes a day after Bankwest announced that it is closing 45 of its branches and transitioning the remaining 15 to Commonwealth Bank of Australia (CBA) branches, going digital-only by October 2024. Bankwest is a subsidiary of the Commonwealth Bank, which trades on the Australian Stock Exchange. ... The new app, called Business+, was...

    A former high school girls’ volleyball player who was injured in a game by an opponent identifying as transgender is calling out a Democrat congresswoman who claims that having transgender athletes in female sports doesn’t hurt anyone. Payton McNabb, a 19-year-old from North Carolina, was struck in the face by a male who identifies as transgender in her varsity high school volleyball match in September 2022. The male knocked Ms. McNabb unconscious in a spike—a move intended to hit the ball in the game.The incident forced Ms. McNabb to spend months recovering from headaches and concentration problems. She also missed...

    Fundamentalist Christian churches from the United States are increasingly gaining power and influence in societies and political spheres across Africa. Many of them have been whipping up negative sentiments against LGBTQ+ people and abortion rights. Haley McEwen, a sociologist at the University of Gothenburg in Sweden, has examined some of their influential networks. "US Christian right-wing groups have been very active in the US foreign policy since the early 2000s," McEwen told DW. "There are several organizations that have been around since the 1970s — and in the early 2000s they started to increase their influence internationally." ...

    Some things Christians believe are curious to me. For example, many conservative evangelical Christians, the group which I generally consider myself to be a part, proudly say, “We take the Bible literally.” Indeed, they use this statement as a test for orthodoxy. Well, here are few questions I’d like to ask them: • When Jesus said that He is the vine (John 15:5), did He mean that He is a plant? • Is God literally a rock (2 Samuel 22:3; Psalm 18:2, etc.)? • Should we literally hate our mother and father so that we can be Jesus’ disciple (Luke...

    The words leaped off the page. As I read Habakkuk 1:2-4, I thought about the United States. The prophet’s complaint about the violence, iniquity, and injustice in ancient Judah matched everything that I saw all around me. How much longer could it be before God’s judgment falls on America? That was over twenty-five years ago. What grabbed my attention back then is tame compared to now. Wickedness, lawlessness, violence, and injustice have increased exponentially in America since then. Abortion and child trafficking hang over our nation like a thick black cloud of hazardous, deadly chemicals. Corruption defines the U.S. government....

    For understanding the First Reading from 2 Chronicles 36, it’s important to realize that the First Readings for Lent in Year B are cycling through some high points of salvation history—a review as we prepare for Easter. So we’ve had (1) the covenant with Noah, the (2) covenant with Abraham, (3) the covenant at Sinai through Moses, and now this week, we are reviewing (4) Israel’s failure to keep the Sinai covenant, and thus the subsequent exile. After all, exile was prophesied as the consequence of failing to keep the Sinai covenant: see Leviticus 26 and Deuteronomy 27. Next week...

    The Heresies against the Holy Bible "The Four Evangelists" by Artus WolffortEverything is presented as if the Church only begins with the Second Vatican Council. Until then – we are told – the Bible had been marginal, excluded from the “center” of the lives of Catholics. In a recent tweet, Father Thomas Crean O.P. described one of the most serious heresies, which, in my opinion, lies at the root of the current crisis:“One of the most dangerous heresies around today is that we can distinguish in Scripture between a perennial substance that is from God and another part that is...
