Heroism in France

Christians have been helping to minister to people in France in the wake of the terrorist shooting in Carcassonne and Trèbes, on 23 March —  a shooting that left four dead and many physically injured and mentally traumatised. Hicham, a pastor ministering in south-western France, who has written before for Evangelical Times, has written: ‘The terrorists want to put France on her knees. They will succeed only in putting Christians on their knees in prayer for France. Islamist extremism, whatever its roots, must be fought in prayer, love and the power of our Christian witness. Let us therefore not be paralysed by fear or animated...

International – Presbyterian Church in Canada

In another bizarre event marking the global invasion of immorality into Western churches, the Presbyterian Church leadership of Canada (PCC) has written a ‘letter of repentance to the LGBTQI community’, confessing various ‘sins’, such as how the church has fostered a ‘homophobic environment’. This news follows the establishment of the Rainbow Communion, a commission set up last year by the PCC to research how the church needs to react and repent for the way it has treated the LGBTQI community. The letter has further polarised those within the Presbyterian Church, in a country that was one of the first to legalise same-sex marriage. In a...

LETTER FROM AMERICA – American Zionism

Early in December 2017 President Trump announced that the United States would recognize that Jerusalem was the capital city of Israel, and not Tel Aviv. He said: ‘Today we finally acknowledge the obvious: that Jerusalem is Israel’s capital … This is nothing more or less than a recognition of reality. It is also the right thing to do. It’s something that has to be done’ (New York Times, 6/12/17). He also stated he would move the US embassy to the Holy City. This pivotal and heavily analysed statement dramatically changes United States’ foreign policy towards Israel and has drawn much criticism from Western and Arab...

International – Helping deaf children in Kenya

Christian charity Siloam Ministries is helping to support a project in Kenya that looks after deaf children, who are more disadvantaged than most in the country. The Lambwe Christian School for the Deaf, a Siloam project, aims to help the children overcome their various disabilities; some children have other issues that affect their quality of life. Margaret Odhiambo, head teacher, said, just as Jesus cherished every child so the dedicated staff at Lambwe are attentive to individual children. ‘I took in Mollie three years ago, after hearing that she was being treated unkindly where she was’, she said. ‘Now Mollie has some speech and has...

International – Christian refugees booted from Austria

A group of Iranian Christian refugees have been given two weeks to leave Austria, after the US government denied their asylum applications. According to media reports, the move by the US government appears to signal the shutting down of a humanitarian programme created to help religious minorities escape persecution. The refugees, approximately 100 in total and mainly Christian, now face possible deportation back to Iran. They have been stranded in Vienna for more than a year and expected to enter the US under the Lautenberg humanitarian programme. This was instigated in 1990 to enable Jews and Christians from the former Soviet Union to emigrate. However,...

International – Esarhaddon’s palace revealed by Isis

The wholesale destruction of the ‘tomb of Jonah’ by Islamic terrorist group Isis has revealed a once opulent palace and inscriptions detailing the life of an Assyrian King. According to a report in The Daily Mail, seven clay tablets were found in a palace, hidden for nearly 3,000 years under the tomb of Jonah, in the northern city of Mosul. These describe the rule of a king named Esarhaddon, calling him the ‘king of the world’ and rebuilder of Babylon and Esagil. They also lay out the man’s family history, giving historians a fresh insight into the ancient royal bloodline of Assyria. The tablets were...
