Troy Williams: Christianity, religious freedom in America

According to the Italian-based Center for Studies on New Religions, Christians were the most persecuted religious group globally in 2016.

Observers are disturbed by the report that also determined that last year, 90,000 Christians were killed and another 600 million were prevented from practicing their faith. An American watchdog group, Open Doors, which began in 1955, added the U.S. for the first time to the 2017 world watch list for Christian persecution.

Practicing Christianity in America has not become illegal, and indeed, in no way rises to the level of persecution of other countries. However, some Christians and non-Christians believe secular progressives' interpretation of the Constitution is a slap at the original intent of the Founding Fathers.

Spiritual War Declared Against President Trump

It’s time to go to war - spiritual war, that is - for the president of the United States.
He is now the direct object of curses being woven against him by covens all across the country, who began their crusade last Friday night at midnight by joining together to curse President Trump. They intend to repeat this ritual on every waning crescent moon until the demons of hell hound him out of office.
Many so-called intellectuals pooh-pooh the idea of demonic spirits and curses as superstitious mumbo-jumbo. But Jesus, who knew more about the spirit world than all the intellectuals in the world put together, was under no illusions about the existence of the underworld and the mission of dark spirits who attack human beings.
A good part of his earthly ministry was spent delivering people from the power of demons. This was not, as some think, a case of Jesus accommodating himself to the misguided perceptions of his day. As he said on another topic, “If it were not so, I would have told you” (John 14:2). Jesus came to earth to destroy superstition, not adapt to it.

This Week's Thought

By Brad Campbell

If you can read all the small print, you will see that this sign says “Jazz Funeral, where people are dying to come in”.  This place of business, located in the heart of New Orleans, puts a unique spin on the traditional funeral.  While you may not have thought much about your own funeral arrangements, some folks plan theirs in advance...

Living in the City of Man
by Dr. Michael Youssef

History repeats itself. No matter how many so-called advances we make as a society, spiritually we are no better off than those who have lived before us. As King Solomon once said, "There is nothing new under the sun" (Ecclesiastes 1:9). Human beings, apart from Christ, will inevitably choose to rebel against the ways of God. As a result, cultures that once were thriving will begin to deteriorate. 

Connecting the Bible with Real Life
by Michael R. Emlet

Do you find it easy or difficult to connect the Bible to people’s lives in meaningful ways? To help you answer the question, let me give you a quiz of sorts for some self-evaluation.  I will give you two sets of questions: one on Bible Passages and the other on Life Struggles. For the Bible Passages category, you must think of a contemporary life situation to which you could apply the given passage.
