Headlines & Articles — Wednesday, December 7th, 2016
..;...December 7th Marks 75th Anniversary of Attack on Pearl Harbor   -Christian Headlines
 On a warm, tropical December 7th morning in 1941, Oahu’s Pearl Harbor—with its Naval ves-sels bobbing quietly along Battleship Row—welcomed the sunrise, coupled by only birdsong, the quiet lull of waves against ship hulls, and the first stirrings of soldiers going about their morning military routines. In fact, the majority of the Pearl Harbor servicemen were in the Mess Halls en-joying their breakfasts when, around 8 a.m., an unexpected barrage of Japanese fighter planes attacked the unsuspecting military base in what would be an initial onslaught lasting a mere two hours, but leaving utter devastation in its wake. 
.;..Ezekiel Prophecy May Foretell Obama’s Zero Hour Betrayal of Israel at UN
“I read prophecy as a filter for political commentary,” Mark explained in an interview with Breaking Israel News. “This prophecy describes Jerusalem as being a trigger for the war that comes later. The international element of the prophecy doesn’t mean the world leaders will come to Jerusalem [but that they will ‘gather’ against it]. The UN clearly seems to be indicated here, and the stage is being set for this to happen.” 
..;.Three Christian Converts Locked Up in Iran Jail for Their Faith 'Miraculously' Set Free
They knew it would take a miracle to get them out of Evin Prison, Iran's most notorious prison. And it did. After just a little more than four months of confinement, three Christian missionaries from the neighbouring country of Azerbaijan walked out of one of the worst prisons in the world on Nov. 6, 2016 after they were charged with trying to convert Iranians to Christianity, a serious offence that usually carries a 10-year jail sentence.
.;..The Fixer Upper Witch-Hunt and What We Must Now Do   -The Stream
On November 8, America came within a hairsbreadth of electing as its president a serious persecutor of the church. And Christian citizens still have plenty to worry about. Our enemies have made that perfectly clear, in the latest ginned-up media attack on Chip and Joanna Gaines, the loveable hosts of HGTV’s Fixer Upper. Imagine if five years ago I had told you that not only would same-sex “marriage” be imposed on 50 states, but that its proponents would try to destroy anyone in public life who even dared to attend a church that opposed it. You would have had me fitted with a shiny tinfoil hat. But here we are.
..;.Keith Ellison, The Wrong Man At The Wrong Time    -Alan Dershowitz
What should a political party that has just lost its white working class, blue-collar base to a "make America great again" nationalist do to try to regain these voters?  Why not appoint as the new head of the party a radical Left-wing ideologue who has a long history of supporting an anti-American, anti-white, antisemitic Nation of Islam racist?  Such an appointment will surely bring back Rust Belt voters who have lost their jobs to globalization and free trade!  Is this really the thinking of those Democratic leaders who are pushing for Keith Ellison to head the Democratic Nat'l Committee?
.;..Jesus Vs. Santa Board Game Draws Criticism  -Christian Headlines
 A Christmas board game that pits Jesus against Santa is receiving criticism for being offensive and even blasphemous.  According to ChristianToday.com, the board game, called “Santa vs. Jesus” began as a Kickstarter campaign. Some Christians believe that the game is blasphemous because it trivializes Jesus.
..;..Media Misleads on Recent Abortion Polling   -Michael J. New
Since the election, a number of mainstream media outlets have noted that Donald Trump trailed Hillary Clinton in the final popular-vote tally, and they have also tried to make the case that his policy positions are unpopular with the American people.
.;..France Bans Ad Of Down Syndrome Children Smiling, Because It Could Offend Pro-Choice
A French court has upheld a ruling by a lower court that a video's portrayal of people with Down syndrome as happy and smiling was "likely to disturb the conscience of women who had lawfully made different personal choices." Meaning, of course, they aborted their babies. 
..;.Jews Saved From 'Amalekite' Clinton  -Israel Today
Israelis were as stunned as the rest of the world by the elections — especially since the media said Hillary Clinton was a “sure thing.” That said, the Netanyahu government appears enormously encouraged by the election results and believe they will have true and dependable friends and allies at both ends of Pennsylvania Avenue beginning on January 20th. 
.;..Abortion Rate in NYC is 60 Percent of Birth Rate
 New York City's abortion rate is the highest abortion rate in the country, according to a report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).  The report shows that in 2013, New York City reported 69,840 abortions and 116,777 registered births, which means that the city’s abortion rate is 60 percent of its birth rate.
..;.Seems When it Comes to Israel, Carter Can’t Control Himself   -Jewish Press
Mark Twain once reiterated that “there are three kinds of lies: lies, damned lies and statistics.” And former president Jimmy Carter has made a post-presidential career out of lying about Israel. 
.;..Trump Handed 'Trigger' To End Sanctuary Cities   -wnd.com
'Hand over dangerous criminals or get your checkbook out'. the power of the purse is something Congress has at its disposal, and he intends to help Trump shut off the flow of federal dollars to sanctuary cities. As chairman of the House Appropriations Committee’s subcommittee on commerce, justice and science, Culberson said he acted on July 7 to notify the Department of Justice that it will need to change its policy. 
..;.Pastors and Friends of Tullian Tchividjian Say He is Permanently Disqualified from Ministry
 Pastors and friends of former pastor of Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church Tullian Tchividjian have released a statement saying that Tchividjian should be disqualified from ministry due to his extramarital affairs and his apparent lack of repentance. According to ChristianToday.com, Tchividjian admitted to an extramarital affair last summer. His wife also reportedly had an affair, and the couple got divorced soon after.
.;..Human Rights Activist: Mexico ‘In Denial’ Over Christians Forced Out of Homes for Their Beliefs
Mexico has a “policy of denial” about the thousands of evangelical Christians forced out of their homes because of their beliefs, according to a Mexican human rights activist. Pedro Faro Navarro, director of the Fray Bartolomé de Las Casas Human Rights Centre, accused the government of “making up the figures” of people forcibly displaced because they have left the “traditionalist” Church, which blends aspects of indigenous paganism and popular Catholicism.

..;...Illinois Commission Panel Says Christian-Owned Bed & Breakfast Must Host Gay Weddings    -Christian Post
A decision forcing a Christian-owned bed and breakfast to pay a same-sex couple $30,000 for refusing to host their wedding ceremony will stand. A 3-member panel of the Illinois Human Rights Commission refused to hear an appeal in a decision compelling TimberCreek Bed & Breakfast to pay a fine for declining to host a gay wedding on their property, although they have hosted opposite-sex weddings in the past. TimberCreek owner Jim Walder told The Christian Post that they took issue with the panel decision and were planning to appeal to the full state Human Rights Commission.
.;..Donald Trump Did Not Win More Evangelical Support Than Romney, Barna Poll Finds -Christian Post
A new national poll has found that Donald Trump did not actually win more evangelical support than Republican nominee Mitt Romney did in 2012 and also found that Trump's most significant support actually came from "notional Christians."
..;.Exposing Margaret Sanger: The Racist Roots of Planned Parenthood   -CBN News
Planned Parenthood hails its founder, Margaret Sanger, as a champion of civil rights, but one thing they don't talk about is the racism behind her fight to legalize abortion. A group of African-American leaders want to focus attention on her ideology and how it affected black birth rates. Sanger strived for a society that limited births to those she deemed fit to have children.
.;..Global Financial Markets Plunged Into Chaos As Italy Overwhelmingly Votes ‘No’
Italian voters have embraced the global trend of rejecting the established world order, but the “no” vote on Sunday has plunged global financial markets into a state of utter chaos.  The euro has already fallen to a 20 month low, Italian government bonds are poised for a tremendous crash, and futures markets are indicating that both U.S. and European stock markets will be way down when they open on Monday.  It is being projected that Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi’s referendum on constitutional reforms will be defeated by about 20 percentage points when all the votes have been counted, and Renzi has already announced that he plans to resign as a result. 
..;.Federal Court Halts Obamacare Appeal, Deals Setback To President   -Washington Times
A federal appeals court halted a key Obamacare case on Monday, agreeing to put off proceedings until after President-elect Trump takes office and figures out how he wants to proceed — and dealing a blow to President Obama in the meantime.
.;..Ohio Bill Protecting Pastors Who Decline to Host, Officiate Same-Sex ‘Weddings’ Clears House Committee
 An Ohio bill known as the “Pastor Protection Act” has cleared a state House committee, but it is not certain whether lawmakers have enough time to pass the legislation this year.  H.B. 286, presented by Rep. Nino Vitale, R-Urbana, protects pastors from punishment in instances when they decline to officiate a wedding that is unbiblical or disallow their church buildings from being used for such ceremonies.
..;..Oldest Alphabet Identified as Hebrew May Confirm Biblical Exodus   -Evangelical Focus
According to archaeologist Douglas Petrovich, inscriptions in stone slabs from Egypt contain an early form of Hebrew, with references to figures from the Bible.  Douglas Petrovich, archaeologist and epigrapher of the Wilfrid Laurier University in Waterloo (Canada), is proposing an innovative reading of several inscriptions on Egyptian slabs from the 18th to 14th centuries BC. These slabs could be the first "alphabet" in the world, an early form of Hebrew with data that coincides with some contents of the early books of the Bible.
.;..Married Couples Who Attend Church Services Together Are Less Likely to Divorce: Study
Married couples who attend church services together are more likely to live longer, are less likely to be depressed, and less likely to get divorced, according to a new study conducted by a professor at the Harvard School of Public Health. 
..;...The Great and Misunderstood Challenges of Adoption   -David French
That so many people are eager to adopt despite the perils of doing so speaks to the powerful lure of parenthood. This Thanksgiving, a baby girl was left at a firehouse in Wantagh, N.Y. She was a mere four pounds, two ounces, and was immediately nicknamed “Baby Girl Hope.” It’s not every day that a young mom leaves her child at a firehouse — especially not on Thanksgiving — so the media covered the story, and within days more than 500 people had stepped forward, offering to adopt or care for Hope. I had several thoughts at the same time:
.;..Texas Fetal Burial Rule Requires Confronting Reality of Abortion  -National Review
Texas has passed a regulation requiring that human corpses be disposed of in accordance with the state’s regulation for the disposal of human corpses. That this exercise in tautology was necessary — and that it is controversial — is a reminder that we live in the golden age of mass delusion. The underlying question here, which properly understood isn’t a question at all, has to do with abortion, and what it is that an abortion does.
..;.Rick Warren: Forget Sola Scriptura, But There is “Plus Scriptura”  -Pulpit & Pen
....It is here, in the midst of an “it’s all about you,” seeker-sensitive stage, where Rick Warren stands, delivering “another” faith under the guise of “the faith.” Warren, who is known for his discern-less, ecumenical alliances, his complacency with regards to orthodoxy, and his embrace of all things mystical, contemplative, and “spiritual,” has, in his recent Daily Hope, corrected the apostle in his instructive oversight to Timothy.
.;..The Night That the Gospel Was Preached To Fidel Castro    -Evangelical Focus
With the title "The night I taught the Apocalypse to Fidel Castro," evangelical theologian Juan Stam recounts an unusual encounter that happened in 2002 in Cuba between a group of Protestant pastors and Fidel Castro....It was October of 2002 and I found myself in Havana participating in a theological conference on the Protestant Reformation. One night, after the day's session had concluded, our leader asked us all to sit down because he had an announcement to make. Fidel Castro had invited us for an interview that same night, from eleven o´clock until two in the morning.
..;.The Shocking Truth About How Barack Obama Was Able To Prop Up The U.S. Economy   -Snyder
Barack Obama is one of the biggest “Keynesians” of all time, but unfortunately most Americans don’t even understand what that means.  In this article, I am going to share with you the primary reason why Barack Obama has been able to prop up the U.S. economy over the past eight years.  If Barack Obama had not taken the extreme measures that he did, we would be in the midst of a historic economic depression right now.  But by propping things up in the short-term, he has absolutely demolished our long-term economic future.  But like most politicians, Obama has been....
.;..The Liberal Media’s Anti-Christian Witch Hunt of Chip and Joanna Gaines -Tony Perkins
Bullying Christians may be a favorite strategy of the left—but it’s not necessarily an effective one. Chip and Joanna Gaines of HGTV’s popular show “Fixer Upper” may be sending that message without ever opening their mouths. In what can only be described as a politically motivated witch hunt, BuzzFeed posted a non-story about how the fan favorites attend a church where it’s apparently news that the pastor preaches out of the Bible.
..;.UK's ‘Absurd’ Sunday School Inspections Show Religion Is Seen as ‘a Problem’ by Government   -Ch Institutte
Proposals for Ofsted to inspect Sunday Schools illustrate that Govt ministers see religious faith as “a problem”, a former Cabinet minister has said. Labour MP Stephen Timms, a former Chief Secretary to the Treasury, made the comments while speaking at the release of a new report about faith-based charities. The Govt announced in October that it will push ahead with plans to give Ofsted the power to investigate church youth work.
.;..Supreme Court Takes Case on Churches and Federal Retirement Law  -Breitbart
On Friday, the U.S. Supreme Court agreed to hear three cases about Christian ministries claiming a church exemption to federal retirement and pension laws in what is expected to be an important religious liberty case. Advocate Health Care Network, St. Peter’s Healthcare System, and Dignity Health are all faith-based healthcare providers. They are nonprofit organizations which provide health care to the poor and needy, and they do it as their faith-based ministry to the world.
.;..Six Ways Bitterness Can Poison Our Lives   -Aaron Blumer
Bitterness can be a good thing. Hannah’s bitter disappointment led her to earnest prayer. Peter’s bitter weeping moved him toward repentance. Job’s bitter ordeal has been a source of comfort for untold millions. And God commanded Ezekiel to weep bitterly as a means of warning his people of coming judgment (Ezek. 21:11-12).  But for us sinners bitterness is perilous.

...........What It Feels Like To Be Homeless 
For the Holidays In America   -Michael Snyder
Could you imagine spending the holidays in a homeless shelter, in a tent city surrounded by drug addicts and prostitutes, or in a sleeping bag on the cold, hard streets of an urban jungle?  Unfortunately, that is what real life looks like for an increasing number of Americans.  Most of the time when we think of “homeless people”, the image that comes into our minds is one of a grizzled old man asking for some spare change, but the truth is that vast numbers of women and children in our country do not have anywhere to live.  In fact, Poverty USA has reported that last year a grand total 1.6 million U.S. children stayed either in a homeless shelter or in some other form of emergency housing.  And you never hear the mainstream media report this number, but the truth is that the number of homeless children in the United States has risen by 60 percent since the “end” of the last recession.   For the moment the wealthy are....
.;..Europe In Turmoil as Italy's Leader Loses Reform Vote   -Yahoo News
Matteo Renzi's time as Italy's prime minister appeared to be over Sunday as exit polls indicated voters had overwhelmingly rejected constitutional reform proposals on which he had staked his future. The reformist premier had vowed to quit if he lost the vote on proposals to streamline parliament and the first exit polls indicated he had been left with little other option. Polls for national broadcaster Rai and the La7 television channel both called the vote decisively for the No camp. Their surveys put the winning margin at an average of 56.7 percent to 43.3.
..;.Majority of Democrats Consider Israel A Burden On U.S.  -Breitbart
A majority of Democrats believe Israel is a burden on the United States and has too much influence on American politics, according to a poll released by the Brookings Institution on Friday. Fifty-seven percent of respondents said they believed President-elect Donald Trump would favor Israel in any future negotiations with the Palestinians. The same percentage said they want Trump be an impartial party to the negotiations.
.;..Why White Evangelicals Are Feeling Hopeful About Trump   -The Atlantic
Right now, a large group of Americans are feeling very hopeful about Donald Trump’s presidency. In polls, they show up in different demographic categories: They’re Republicans; they’re Trump voters; they’re of all different ages and from every geographic region. But the group that stands out—the label that best seems to characterize people in the U.S. who are feeling better than they did three weeks ago because of Trump—is white evangelical Christians.  A new survey by the Public Religion Research Institute and The Atlantic found that 39% of self-identified evangelicals....
..;.What Christians Are Doing to Show Support for HGTV's 'Fixer Upper' Couple -CBN News
Thousands of Christians are supporting HGTV's "Fixer Upper" hosts Chip and Joanna Gaines. The couple is facing heat because they attend a church that believes in the biblical definition of marriage.  BuzzFeed published an article this week criticizing the couple because their church, Antioch Community Church in Waco, Texas, follows the Christian and biblical definition of marriage being between one man and one woman. 
.;..Gatlinburg Wildfires: Four Things You Should Know About Worst Tennessee Fire in 100 Years
The death toll rose to 13 on Friday as officials in Tennessee continue to investigate the cause of the massive wildfires that have destroyed homes and businesses in Gatlinburg and surrounding areas where over 5,000 people are still without power.
..;..Hope for America Despite Signs of Death  -Greg Forster 
The American republic and the evangelical church within it both show clear signs of dying. Churches, however, are often not as mortal as they look, if history is any guide. They even have a way of suddenly getting up and walking back out of the grave. And often, as a side effect of their resurrection, they bear their civilizations back from the grave with them. The histories of Rome in late antiquity, Europe in the High Middle Ages and again after the Reformation, and England in the Industrial Revolution, among others, are instructive in this regard. For the church in America today, there is a path back from cultural enslavement to faithful discipleship. And that means for America itself, there is a path back from decadence and injustice to national honor. The road is hard, but the path is actually not that difficult to find, if we want to find it.
.;..Doctors Told Parents to Pull the Plug, Then Their Baby Woke Up  -CBN News
Doctors in France who were treating a one-year-old girl gave up hope on the child, and planned to end her life.  However, the infant thwarted their plans and surprised everyone by opening her eyes at about the same time the doctors were planning to take her off life support.
..;.Key Religious Freedom Protection Stripped From Defense Spending Bill After Pro-LGBT Groups Complain
Congressional lawmakers have removed a proposed religious freedom protection from the annual defense spending bill that would have protected religious charities and other federal contractors from losing federal grants because of their views on marriage and sexuality.
.;..The Left Continues To Self-Destruct -Michael Brown
Rather than learn some valuable lessons from the resounding electoral victory of Donald Trump and the Republican Party, it appears that the left is lurching further leftward, thereby paving the way to its own demise.  Here are some recent examples.
..;.British Prime Minister: Christian Should Feel Free to Speak About Their Faith in Public  -UK Telegraph
Christians should not be afraid of of speaking "freely" about their faith at work and in public places, Theresa May has said.  The Prime Minister said people should be able to celebrate Christmas as she endorsed a report which said that Christianity should be "celebrated, not denigrated". The report says that many employers will have "little problem" with Christians discussing their faith at work "in the same way you might talk about sport, hobbies and family life"....The Prime Minister, who is the daughter of a vicar, said that Christians should "jealously guard" their right to speak out...
.;..Could We Please Quit Pretending It’s About Marriage Equality?  -the Stream
....It’s time we quit pretending. It isn’t just Donald Trump’s Cabinet that disbelieves in marriage equality. It isn’t just Jimmy Seibert, controversial pastor to HGTV’s Chip and Joanna Gaines. It’s Brian Soucek, too. It’s the Human Rights Campaign, along with virtually every other gay activist. It’s all of us.  No one believes in marriage equality. No one, that is, except members of the hyper-radical fringe who want to do away with marriage altogether. They’re the only ones who really believe in marriage equality. Otherwise “marriage equality” has never been anything but a slogan.
..;.Five Reasons Barack Obama Will Be Viewed As One Of The Worst Presidents of All Time   -John Hawkins
Compiling a list of reasons why Barack Obama is a terrible president seems like a project for a book rather than a column. However, when we start looking at the catastrophic mistakes he’s made that may reverberate for years to come, it’s clear that he’s been a disaster for America on a scale that few other Presidents can match. Just look at his record.
.;..They Lie About Everything: Inherit the Wind, Evolution and the Scopes Monkey Trial   -Ace of Spades HQ
....One of the left's favorite and most effective myths is the Scopes Monkey Trial and its apparent triumph of reasoned, scientific thinking over the ignorant, backward foolery of Christian fundamentalism. The story most Americans believe is the one portrayed in the movie, Inherit the Wind. Many of us were even shown this film, presented uncritically as a factual account of an American historical event, while in school and it remains the basic foundation for our culture's understanding of Darwinian Evolution. What most people don't know is that both Inherit the Wind and the Scopes Trial itself were both calculating pieces of propaganda.  The Scopes trial was born out of the Butler Act, a Tennessee law that prohibited teaching....
....;..BuzzFeed Wants To Destroy Chip And Joanna Gaines For Being Christian And Wildly Popular   -Hans Fiene
“Buzzfeed has uncovered something many fans will likely want an explanation for,” Aurthur writes, that “something” being that Chip and Joanna, house-flippers extraordinaire, HGTV superstars, and perhaps America’s most beloved married couple, belong to a church whose pastor preaches that homosexuality is sinful.  Mei also brings our attention to these vile, reprehensible words from Jimmy Seibert, the Gaines’ pastor: “So if someone were to say, ‘Marriage is defined in a different way,’ let me just say: They are wrong. God defined marriage, not you and I. God defined masculine and feminine, male and female, not you and I.” That’s some Westboro Baptist-level hate speech, right there, folks. Does this hateful homo- phobia also lurk within the Texas hearts of Chip and JoJo, y’all? Mei puts it all in perspective for us.
.;..What 'Judge Not' Really Means  -Shane Idleman
News reports are featuring famous athletes, actors, and pop-stars being asked about abortion and gay-marriage. Often, they criticize Christians: "Doesn't the Bible say 'judge not'; who are you to tell people what they can, and cannot do?" Unfortunately, misrepresentation of this Scripture is common among the media and other groups who often misquote Jesus' words from Matthew 7:1, "Judge not, that you be not judged." 
..;.Seven Core Productivity Apps for Pastors and Church Leaders -Jonathan Howe
I bought a new iPhone for my wife this weekend...Even though she has several dozen fewer apps on her phone than I do, my wife and I still use a core set of apps for many of the same functions. My guess is that many of you do as well because we all use our smart phones for similar purposes unless you work in a highly specialized industry. So for those who are in ministry and ministry related jobs, what are the core productivity apps? A Bible app seems like an obvious start, but what next? Here are seven suggestions:
.;.The First Marriage-David Cloud
Christ taught that Genesis 2 contains God’s perfect plan for marriage and that this divine law is in effect today (Mat. 19:4-6, 8).  Consider some important lessons about marriage from this foundational passage:  1. Marriage is a divine institution, and man has no right to change it. God performed the first marriage ceremony when He brought the woman to the man and made them husband and wife. 
..;.‘Ideas Have Consequences': The Common Ingredients of Growing Churches  -Thomas S. Kidd
A new study of Ontario churches suggests that orthodox theology, and innovative styles of worship and communication, are among the most common ingredients in growing congregations. Perhaps more striking is that these patterns of growth are happening even in certain mainline congregations in Canada, a country generally regarded as more liberal and secular than much of the United States.
.;..Why I Love the Church   -Cameron Buettel
If you told your best friend that you hated his wife do you think he’d still be your friend? Nonetheless, there are many professing Christians who effectively tell Jesus the same thing: “I love Jesus but I can’t stand the church” (Christ’s bride as depicted in Revelation 21:9). We hear that sentiment a lot these days with growing numbers of people choosing to pursue Jesus while shunning His bride—the church. 
..;.Because We All Have Special Needs   -Scott Sauls
According to The American Journal of Medical Genetics, 99% of those living with Down Syndrome say that they are happy. 97% say that they like who they are. And 99% agree with the statement, “I love my family.” According to one writer, these statistics identify those living with Down Syndrome as “the happiest people in the world.” One of my greatest privileges is being pastor to a church with many children and adults who....
.;..Jesus’ Deity and the Early Church  -Nathan Busenitz
Ask your average Muslim, Unitarian, Jehovah’s Witness, or just about any non-Christian skeptic who has read (or watched) The Da Vinci Code, and they’ll try to convince you the answer is no. From such sources we are told that the deity of Christ was a doctrine invented centuries after Jesus’ death — a result of pagan influences on the church in the fourth century when the Roman Empire adopted Christianity as its official religion. So how can believers answer such allegations?   The best response, obviously, is to demonstrate from Scripture that Jesus is God. 
..;.13 Reasons I Never Joined the Contemporary Worship Movement  -Jonathan Aigner
There are a lot of articles and posts written by some great people who left the contemporary worship movement. That’s not my story, so this is not one of those posts. I grew up in a Southern Baptist megachurch in suburban Houston, Texas. I was surrounded by contemporary worship for the first 16 years of my life, but I never bought into the trend.
