It's Tuesday, January 17th, A.D. 2023. This is The Worldview in 5 Minutes heard at www.TheWorldview.com. I'm Adam McManus. (Adam@TheWorldview.com) By Kevin Swanson Biden's proclamation on Religious Freedom Day On Monday, President Joe Biden issued a Proclamation on Religious Freedom Day, 2023.  He took the opportunity to announce his appointment of Rashad Hussain, a Muslim, as Ambassador-at-Large for International Religious Freedom. Although the president mentioned the Rohingya people and the Ahmadiyya Muslim in his proclamation, recent news coverage has only mentioned the killing of nine Muslims at the hands of other Muslims in Burkina Faso, Africa. Radical Muslims kill 99% of martyrs Meanwhile, confirmed Christian martyrdoms came out to 5,898 in the last annual count according to the Open Doors 2022 report. And 99% of the martyrdoms occurred at the hands of radical Muslims, to include 4,650 in Nigeria, Africa, 620 in Pakistan, 100 in Burkina Faso, Africa, 100 in the Congo, Africa, 100 in Mozambique, Africa, 27 in Cameroon, Africa, 25 in Tanzania, Africa, and 15 in Indonesia. Gunman attacked mourners in London, injuring little girl A gunman attacked a Roman Catholic Church in London  over the weekend, leaving six wounded — including a 7-year-old girl fighting for her life, reports The Christian Post. The shooting occurred during a memorial service at St. Aloysius Roman Catholic church.  United Kingdom failed to solve over a million crimes The Epoch Times reports that the United Kingdom failed to solve over 1,100,000 crimes last year. The proportion of crimes in England and Wales ending with a charge was down to 5.6% in 2022, decreasing from a rate of 15 percent seven years ago. That's an over-all drop off of 65% in crime prosecution over seven years.   Two million criminal investigations in the last year led to no suspect being identified, a number including 300,000 violent crimes.  The Crime Survey for England and Wales estimated that 1.6% of adults, aged 16 years and older, were a victim of violent crime in the year ending March 2020. As of 2021, there were only 156,000 firearms certificates on issue in the UK. That's 0.2% of the population. One must have this certificate to possess firearms and ammunition.  That compares to 45% of U.S. households that own guns.  Romans 13:3-4 says, “Rulers are not a terror to good works, but to evil. For he is God's minister to you for good, an avenger to execute wrath on him who practices evil.” Shocking impact of inflation on savings How is inflation impacting Certificates of Deposit or savings accounts for retirees and other conservative savers in America? The average annual savings loss after inflation, over 12 years, for a three-month CD, stands at negative 2.26%. That means a retiree with $100,000 in savings would have lost $23,000 in value over the last 12 years. Over the same period of time, the Federal Reserve assets increased from $1 trillion to about $9 trillion.  Florida opposes the abortion “Kill Pill” Florida is taking a position against the recent FDA decision to allow local pharmacies to dispense the abortion “Kill Pill.”   Florida's Agency for Healthcare Administration issued a letter last week informing pharmacy chains, like Walgreens and CVS, the illegality of the sale of Mifepristone within the state. Oddly enough, in light of the state's stand against the Kill Pill, Florida allows the surgical killing of babies up until 15 weeks of gestation.  Christian colleges allowed to uphold God's sexual standards Good news here! A U.S. district judge has ruled in favor of Christian colleges which claim exemption on Title IX requirements on non-discrimination in the case of those who advocate sexual attraction to the same sex, reports Reuters.   The lawsuit came from disenfranchised students who were expelled or disciplined by Christian college campuses for their embracing of homosexuality.  The complainants were affiliated with Baylor University, Bob Jones University, Dordt College, and Union College. The lawsuit was aided by an organization called Religious Exemption Accountability Project.  Proverbs 21:1 reminds us that “The king's heart is in the hand of the LORD, like the rivers of water; He turns it wherever He wishes.” John MacArthur had surgery to clear artery blockage And finally, Pastor John MacArthur is on rest recovery for a few weeks after undergoing a medical procedure to clear blockage in his arteries. The pastor fell ill on January 1st, and was unable to lead the second service. Please pray for Pastor MacArthur's complete recovery. Perhaps you and your kids can create and sign a get well card. Send it to Pastor John MacArthur, Grace Community Church, 13248 Roscoe Blvd., Sun Valley, CA 91352.

It's Monday, January 16th, A.D. 2023. This is The Worldview in 5 Minutes heard at www.TheWorldview.com. I'm Adam McManus. By Adam McManus (Adam@TheWorldview.com) Burmese military bomb a church leading to civilian casualties The campaign of violence continues in Myanmar against civilians. On December 30, the Burmese military shelled St. Michael Catholic Church in San Hka village, located in the predominately Christian Kachin state, reports International Christian Concern. At least one civilian was killed and five were reported injured.   Two children were among the five who were wounded after one artillery shell hit the village and another was dropped in the church compound.   This attack came two months after the military junta bombed a concert that killed 63 people. British cardiologist stuns BBC interviewer: COVID shots endanger heart In what is being hailed as a breakthrough for COVID-19 vaccine skepticism into the mainstream media, the BBC invited Dr. Aseem Malhotra, one of the most influential cardiologists in Britain, to speak on a segment about medical issues, during which he told viewers there was “lots of data” linking the COVID shots to heart problems, reports LifeSiteNews.com. Hosted by Lukwesa Burak, the segment began with the subject of statin pills for heart health. Malhotra took the opportunity to tell the BBC's audience that the mRNA-based COVID vaccines “do carry a cardiovascular risk.” MALHOTRA: “Since the [COVID] pandemic, there's been 30,000 [British] excess deaths, specifically due to cardiac atrophy. That's my area of expertise. And they're trying to figure out what's causing it. “What I, in my own research has found, and this is something that is probably a likely contributing factor, is that the COVID mRNA vaccines do carry a cardiovascular risk. “I've actually called for the suspension of this, pending an inquiry, because there's a lot of uncertainty at the moment about what's causing the excess deaths. My own father suffered a cardiac arrest at home, and the ambulance took 30 minutes. And when his post-mortem came out, he had very severe cardiac atrophy which is unexplainable.  And then I published, in a peer-reviewed journal, and they accepted my findings, that the likely cause of his death was two doses of the Pfizer mRNA vaccine he had six months earlier.” Another study found that athlete deaths are 1,700% higher than expected since COVID-19 vaccination began. Biden's classified documents fiasco President Joe Biden said he was “surprised” when classified documents were found in a closet in his former Washington think tank office and portrayed it as an honest mistake. But when another batch of classified documents was found in his garage, where he keeps his 1967 Corvette Stingray at his home in Wilmington, Delaware, pressure has mounted to explain what is fast becoming a crisis of credibility for the White House, reports The Epoch Times. Listen to the exchange between Fox News reporter Peter Doocy and President Biden. DOOCY: “Classified material -- next to your Corvette? What were you thinking?” BIDEN: “My Corvette's in a locked garage, okay? So, it's not like it's sitting out in the street!” Attorney General Merrick Garland has appointed a special counsel to investigate the case while Republicans have alleged a two-tier justice system where former President Donald Trump—who faces his own classified document probe—is seen as being treated more harshly while Biden supposedly with kid gloves. Last August, the FBI executed a search warrant at Trump's Mar-a-Lago home and seized thousands of documents, including some marked classified and top secret. The White House is facing growing criticism for not disclosing the find of the Biden-linked documents until two months after their discovery on November 2, 2022—a week before the midterm election. Supreme Court to hear Christian postman who asked for Sundays off Last Friday, the U.S. Supreme Court said it will hear the civil rights lawsuit of an Evangelical Christian postal worker who resigned from the U.S. Postal Service after it refused to allow him to observe Sunday as the Sabbath, reports The Christian Post. Gerald Groff of Pennsylvania quit the United States Postal Service in 2019 after a service of about seven years because the Quarryville Post Office in Lancaster County required him to deliver Amazon packages on Sundays. Kelly Shackelford with First Liberty, who is representing Groff, said, “It is unlawful for employers to discriminate against employees on the basis of religion. It's time for the Supreme Court to reconsider a decades-old case that favors corporations and the government over the religious rights of employees.” Exodus 20:8 says, “Remember the Sabbath, to keep it holy.” Video raises $108,000 for elderly Walmart employee to retire And finally, Rory McCarty was shocked to find an 82-year-old Navy veteran and widower still “grinding” out 8-9 hour shifts at a Walmart in Cumberland, Maryland. He realized at that moment he could put his social media influence towards a good cause. McCarty runs an extermination business called Bug Boys, and in a true 21st century story, has amassed a TikTok following of 300,000 people by showing videos of creepy crawlies he finds during work. On the GoFundMe page McCarty set up on December 19th to fund Warren “Butch” Marion's belated retirement, he wrote, “As a business owner … I was astounded seeing this little older man still grinding. Working eight to nine hour shifts.” In an initial TikTok video, McCarty told Marion about a woman who raised money on her channel to help elderly Walmart employees retire. MCCARTY: “She raised $100,000 for this woman. Now imagine if someone raised that kind of money for you?” MARION: “Woo!” McCarty raised $108,000 in just a few days to help Marion finally retire, reports GoodNewsNetwork.org. MARION: “This is for real?” MCCARTY: “Yes, oh you better believe this is for real. It'll help you a lot wouldn't it?” MARION: (Beginning to cry) “I can't thank you guys enough.” MCCARTY: “Man, come here. Give me a hug buddy.” Amazingly, Warren Marion walked into Walmart in Cumberland, Maryland, for the final time last week after having handed in a two-week notice. He was greeted with cheers, balloons, and a large check for $108,000. A video McCarty posted of them both in December has been viewed over three million times. McCarty said, “I wanted to help this Navy Veteran to live the remainder of his years traveling to see his kids in Florida, get him off his feet for 8 hours at a time, and do the things he would love to do that he may not be able to for financial reasons.” Jesus said, “It is more blessed to give than to receive.” (Acts 20:35) Close And that's The Worldview in 5 Minutes on this Monday, January 16th, in the year of our Lord 2023. Subscribe by iTunes or email to our unique Christian newscast at www.TheWorldview.com.

It's Wednesday, January 11th, A.D. 2023. This is The Worldview in 5 Minutes heard at www.TheWorldview.com. I'm Adam McManus. (Adam@TheWorldview.com) By Jonathan Clark Open Doors USA becomes Global Christian Relief Open Doors USA is relaunching as Global Christian Relief after leaving persecution watchdog group Open Doors International. The rebranded ministry retains the same board of directors and CEO, David Curry. Global Christian Relief's new website says, “For 50 years, Open Doors USA has supported persecuted Christians. We need a larger vision to mobilize dedicated Christians to support our persecuted family in new and life-changing ways that will expand God's Kingdom for the next 50 years. Our vision is to create the most extensive, covert network serving persecuted Christians.” Open Doors International will continue to maintain a presence in the U.S. and publish the annual World Watch List of the top 50 nations where it is most difficult to be a Christian. 1 Corinthians 12:26 says, “If one member suffers, all suffer together; if one member is honored, all rejoice together.” British survey reveals only 3% are sexually perverted A new census from England and Wales asked the population, for the first time, about so-called gender identity and sexual orientation.  Ninety percent of respondents answered the optional questions. The 2021 census data found 89% of citizens said they were heterosexual.  In total, those living sexually perverted lifestyles represented 3.1% of the population. This number comes in contrast to estimates by liberal activist groups that claim 5-10% of the population is non-heterosexual. Scottish Catholic church in decline The Roman Catholic Church in Scotland is facing a wave of closures in the face of falling attendance and rising costs. A spokesman for the Scottish Catholic Church told The Times U.K., “With a few exceptions, attendance and income in every diocese are down significantly following the pandemic.” Scotland's largest archdiocese of Glasgow runs a deficit. One Edinburgh priest said parishioners appear more interested in spending money on Netflix subscriptions and football season tickets than supporting their local parish. Decline in American church attendance Meanwhile in the U.S., a new report by the Survey Center on American Life shows a decline in church attendance since the pandemic. Thirty-three percent of Americans said they never attend religious services last year, up from 25% before the pandemic.  Religious identity remained the same for most adults despite the increase in those who didn't attend church. The report found that young adults experienced the greatest change in religious attendance of any group. Psalm 84:10 says, “For a day in your courts is better than a thousand elsewhere. I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God than dwell in the tents of wickedness.” Pastor and hymn writer Jack Hayford went to Heaven Jack Hayford, a prominent pastor, author, seminary chancellor, and the man who wrote the popular contemporary Christian worship song “Majesty,” among 600 others, died this past Sunday at his Los Angeles home at the age of 88, reports The Christian Post. The ministry said, “We mourn his loss but celebrate the homecoming of a great leader in God's kingdom. We know that this great servant and worshipper is now experiencing the greatest worship service of all.” On Family Talk with Dr. James Dobson, where Hayford addressed the importance of praying for your family, he explained how God told him to honor the Sabbath after 20 years of disobedience in that regard. HAYFORD: “The most profound impact on me came when I realized that there was a subtle form of idolatry in my violating the observance of a day of rest each week. The idolatry was the supposition that I was wiser than God or had more strength than Him.” Man, pretending to be a woman, burned down Portland church A man, who pretends to be a woman, confessed to burning down a 117-year-old church building in downtown Portland, Oregon last Tuesday. Police arrested 25-year-old Cameron David Storer and charged him with multiple counts of arson and burglary. Storer told police that voices in his head were threatening to mutilate him if he did not burn down the building. The structure once housed the Portland Korean Church and has been vacant for 10 years. Virginia parent acquitted of bizarre trespassing charge Last Wednesday, Virginia's Loudoun County Circuit Court acquitted Jon Tigges of trespassing charges. The military veteran was one of 700 who showed up for a county school board meeting in June of 2021. Concerned parents and citizens came to protest the school's transgender policy, COVID mandates, and the teaching of the critical race theory. After hearing from 50 of the 250 parents who signed up to speak, Superintendent Scott Ziegler took a recess and then announced that the gathering was an “unlawful assembly.”  When Tigges insisted that he had a right to be in the room and explained that he would not leave, he was arrested and charged with criminal trespassing. After last week's ruling, Tigges said, “I hope this victory only encourages more parents to speak out and get involved to take back their children's education and reclaim their basic rights.” Pro-life laws are being challenged State supreme courts are hearing cases against abortion bans enacted in response to the overturning of Roe v. Wade.  Last Thursday, Idaho's Supreme Court upheld two anti-abortion laws. One of the laws banned abortions in the event that Roe was overturned, and the other one banned abortions after six weeks of pregnancy. In contrast, South Carolina's Supreme Court struck down a similar six-week abortion ban last week. Farmers vs. John Deere tractors And finally, U.S. farmers won a long-sought victory this week to be able to repair their own John Deere tractors. Farmers have complained for years about the company's repair limitations and software locks, saying they interfere with timely planting and harvesting. Under the new agreement, farmers now have the same documentation and diagnostic tools used by John Deere authorized repair shops and can fix their equipment themselves or use an independent shop.

In this episode, Jeff Charles spoke with Dr. Jeff Myer, president of Summit Ministries and Brandon Schowalter, a reporter with the Christian Post. Both of these men have covered the effort to push transgenderism on young children and have reported extensively on the issue. They discussed the devastating impact of "gender-affirming care," and how studies have shown how it has destroyed the lives of kids especially after they reach adulthood. It was a very disturbing, but enlightening conversation. It is not for the faint of heart, but it is important that people know what is happening with institutions dedicated to persuading parents to allow their children to go through social, medical, and even surgical procedures to supposedly help these individuals be mentally healthy.

Cardiac arrest of NFL player results in prayer on field, Abortion: Global leading cause of death, How Chinese Communists are co-opting Christianity

The WorldView in 5 Minutes

It's Thursday, January 5th, A.D. 2023. This is The Worldview in 5 Minutes heard at www.TheWorldview.com. I'm Adam McManus. (Adam@TheWorldview.com) By Jonathan Clark How Chinese Communists are co-opting Christianity The U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom released a report on China last month. The Chinese Communist Party is continuing its five-year plan to sinicize major religions in the country, including Christianity.  The report noted, “Official campaigns to sinicize religion have a disproportionally adverse impact on Christianity. … State-controlled religious organizations have been involved in altering, censoring, and controlling the content of Christian religious texts (such as the Bible) … doctrines, sermons, and hymns to ensure their alignment with the Chinese Communist Party's interpretation of religion.” Those who do not bow to such control face severe persecution. Abortion:  Global leading cause of death Abortion was the leading cause of death last year, accounting for 40% of all deaths. Worldometer statistics report over 44 million unborn babies were killed by abortion in 2022. By comparison, an estimated 16 million people died from disease last year, 9.6 million from cancer, 6 million from smoking, and 2 million from HIV/AIDS. In the United States, there are an estimated 1,500 to 2,500 abortions per day. This means nearly 20% of all pregnancies in America (not including miscarriages) end in abortion. Psalm 106:37-38 says, “They sacrificed their sons and their daughters to the demons; they poured out innocent blood, the blood of their sons and daughters, whom they sacrificed to the idols of Canaan, and the land was polluted with blood.” Hungary's tax policies urges married couples to have kids In contrast, one country is seeking to support families. Hungary  implemented a new tax policy this month that exempts mothers under the age of 30 from paying income tax. The tax exemption also applies to working adults under the age 25 and mothers with at least four children. The program offers financial support for buying seven-seater cars as well. Hungary has been enacting pro-family policies to encourage increased birthrates. GOP's McCarthy voted down time after time for House speaker House Republicans flailed through a long second day of fruitless balloting Wednesday, unable to either elect Kevin McCarthy as House speaker or come up with a new strategy to end the political chaos that has tarnished the start of their new majority, reports the Associated Press. Yet McCarthy wasn't giving up, even after the fourth, fifth and sixth ballots produced no better outcome. Twenty conservative holdouts still refuse to support him, leaving McCarthy far short of the 218 votes typically needed to win the gavel. Appearing on Fox News, Republican Congressman Chip Roy of Texas, one of the 20 conservatives opposing McCarthy, said this. ROY: “[McCarthy] has been in the leadership of Republicans since 2009. During that time, the debt has gone from 11 trillion to 32 trillion. In other words, we want to be able to have a check against The Swamp. This is about changing this town. Is anybody listening to this actually happy with what Congress is doing? Do you think Congress is doing a good job? The answer is ‘No.' So, why would we embrace the status quo? Why would we keep doing the same thing over and over again, that's what's happening in that room. “And this morning, a group of folks threatened some of us and they lost votes on that. Mike Rogers threatened to say he's going to kick those of us off of any committees who dared to challenge the coronation of the Speaker. And it was not received well by a lot of people in the room. Mike Rogers is emblematic of the problem. He is precisely why we ended up with bills like the $1.7 trillion monstrosity that was destroying our freedom. I'm not blinking!” House Speaker elections required multiple ballots 14 times Throughout American history, there have been 14 instances of Speaker elections requiring multiple ballots. Thirteen of 14 multiple-ballot elections occurred before the Civil War, when party divisions were more nebulous. The last time a Speaker election required two or more votes on the floor happened in 1923 with the election of Frederick Gillett, a Republican, from Massachusetts. Twitter previously suspended 250,000 accounts The latest batch of Twitter files show just how many accounts the social media company suspended on behalf of the U.S. government prior to Elon Musk taking over, reports CBN News. New Twitter owner Elon Musk tweeted, “US govt agency demanded suspension of 250K accounts, including journalists and Canadian officials!” Meanwhile, the Christian Post reports Twitter reinstated its account last Saturday. The Christian news group tweeted, “Our Twitter account has just been reinstated after a 9-month suspension because we correctly called Biden official Rachel Levine a man — and we refused to retract this truth.” 88% of Congressmen claim to be Christians Pew Research reports this year's 118th U.S. Congress remains untouched by two American demographic trends: the decline of Christianity and the rise of religious disaffiliation. Self-identified Christians have dropped to 63% of the population, and those who identify with no religion have increase to nearly 30% of the population. However, 88% of voting members of Congress say they are Christians, and only one member identifies as religiously unaffiliated. Since the 1960s, the Protestant makeup of Congress has dropped from 74% to 56%. Meanwhile, Roman Catholic identification has increased from 18% to 27%. Identification with other religions or no religion increased from 6% to 15%. Cardiac arrest of NFL player results in prayer on field And finally, NFL Buffalo Bills player Damar Hamlin suffered cardiac arrest during a game Monday against the Cincinnati Bengals that turned into a viral prayer meeting.  The rest of the game was suspended. Hamlin, #3, had just stood up after being tackled before collapsing to the ground. Medics immediately performed CPR to restart his heart which lasted for nine minutes.   At the same time, head coach Sean McDermott gathered with his team to pray over their teammate. An ambulance took Hamlin to the ICU where he remains in critical condition with signs of improvement. His uncle, Dorrian Glenn, told CNN that Hamlin remained sedated on a ventilator as doctors worked toward getting him to breathe on his own. ESPN commentator prayed spontaneously on air Across social media, players and fans alike offered prayers for Hamlin. A day after the game, ESPN's Dan Orlovsky prayed a spontaneous prayer for him on “NFL Live.” Listen. ORLOVSKY: “We just want to pray, truly come to You, and pray for strength for Damar, for healing for Damar, for comfort for Damar, to be with his family, to give them peace. If we didn't believe that prayer didn't work, we wouldn't ask this of You God. I believe in prayer. We believe in prayer. We lift up to Damar Hamlin's name in Your name, Amen.” ANOTHER ESPN COMMENTATOR: “Amen.” 1 Peter 5:6-7 says, “Humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time, casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you.” Close And that's The Worldview in 5 Minutes on this Thursday, January 5th in the year of our Lord 2023. Subscribe by iTunes or email to our unique Christian newscast at www.TheWorldview.com.

2,500 pack Indiana library for Kirk Cameron story hour, Pope Benedict died at 95, Brother Andrew's life remembered

It's Monday, January 2nd, A.D. 2023. This is The Worldview in 5 Minutes heard at www.TheWorldview.com. I'm Adam McManus. By Adam McManus (Adam@TheWorldview.com) Ugandan Muslims sprayed pastor with acid in the face A pastor has lost nearly all his vision after Muslim extremists lured him into an ambush in Uganda's capital city and sprayed him with acid, reports Morning Star News. Pastor Frank Mutabaazi of Mbarara can see only dimly out of one eye and has trouble eating and talking due to the burns from the acid attack on December 22 in Kampala. His shoulder was also seriously burned, and he cannot sleep without painkillers. After the pastor preached at an evening service of a church in the Kasubi area of Kampala, a Muslim extremist, pretending to be a congregation member greeted him, praised him for his “wonderful sermon,” asked for a ride, and later three Muslims ambushed him, spraying acid in his face.   They called the pastor a deceiver who was not worthy to live. John 3:20 says, “Everyone who does evil hates the light.” Pope Benedict died at 95 Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI, who will forever be remembered as the first pontiff in 600 years to resign from the job, died Saturday, reports the Associated Press. He was 95. Benedict stunned the world on February 11, 2013, when he announced, in his typical, soft-spoken Latin, that he no longer had the strength to run the 1.2 billion-strong Catholic Church that he had steered for eight years through scandal and indifference. And now Pope Francis will celebrate Benedict's funeral Mass on Thursday, the first time in the modern age that a current pope will eulogize a retired one. The former Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger never wanted to be pope, planning at age 78 to spend his final years writing in the “peace and quiet” of his native Bavaria.  Being elected pope, he once said, felt like a “guillotine” had come down on him. Barbara Walters dead at 93 Barbara Walters, the trailblazing television news broadcaster and longtime ABC News anchor and correspondent, died Friday, reports ABC News. She was 93. Walters joined ABC News in 1976, becoming the first female anchor on an evening news program. Three years later, she became a co-host of "20/20," and in 1997, she launched "The View," a leftist talk program co-hosted by women. She was married four times to three different men. USA Today names Richard Levine — a man — among its 'Women of the Year' The editors at USA Today have officially drunk the “woke” Kool-Aid. The paper named Richard Levine — a man pretending to be a woman named “Rachel” -- among its “Women of the Year.” USA Today described Richard Levine as “the highest-ranking openly transgender official when the Senate confirmed her as assistant secretary of health in October 2021.” To be clear, Richard Levine has taken estrogen for years, has chosen mutilating surgeries, dresses like a woman, and now calls himself “Rachel” Levine.   The final vote was 52-48. Two Republican Senators Lisa Murkowski of Alaska and Susan Collins of Maine, to their shame, joined all Democrats in supporting Levine. Genesis 1:27 says, “So God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created them; male and female, He created them.” 2,500 pack Indiana library for Kirk Cameron story hour Last Thursday, 2,500 people packed the Indianapolis Public Library to hear Christian actor Kirk Cameron read his new children's book As You Grow after a debacle surrounding the actor's allegations that his request to host the event was initially denied, reports The Christian Post. The story hour booked by Cameron and his publisher, Brave Books, garnered large masses of people, forming an overflow crowd. A video posted on Twitter shows overflow attendees packed in the aisles of the library as there was no remaining space in the booked room.  In a public letter, Cameron questioned if he was prevented from reading his Christian children's book because his race and the book's Christian content didn't fit the library staff's view of diversity.  The book aims to use "brilliant art [to teach] the Biblical truths of the Fruit of the Spirit.” Galatians 5:22-23 says, “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.” Cameron and Brave Books claim that over 50 public libraries have denied them the opportunity to host story-hour events. For many of those libraries, Drag Queen Story Hour events are typically included in their programs for children. Brother Andrew's life remembered And finally, as The Worldview looks back on the notable Christians who died in 2022, another disciple worth mentioning is Brother Andrew who died on September 27th at the age of 94. Brother Andrew earned the nickname "God's Smuggler" for his daring Bible deliveries behind the Iron Curtain at the height of the Cold War and was known by many for his adventurous faith and intensely devoted prayer life. Appearing on The 700 Club with Pat Robertson, he said this. BROTHER ANDREW: “My smuggler's prayer is when I say, ‘Lord Jesus, when You were on Earth, You've made so many blind eyes to see. Now, it's the same job for You to make seeing eyes blind. But You've got to do it now!' And if He doesn't, then I've had it. I cannot outsmart the crossing guards. “Just think when I pull my car in there and I get out the show my papers. I've had situations where they took four hours to search -- two fellows in the front of my vehicle, two in the rear, two underneath, and two standing there to watch the expression on my face to see if I was getting nervous.” ROBERTSON: “And all the time they couldn't find the Bibles?” BROTHER ANDREW: “I've never lost one Bible in 20 years.” (laughter and applause) He founded Open Doors, the oldest worldwide ministry to persecuted Christians, it reaches 60 countries, where it provides Bibles, emergency relief, and vocational training to Christians who are persecuted because of their faith. Open Doors is celebrating 67 years of ministry. Toward the end of his life, Brother Andrew said he often was asked a pointed question. BROTHER ANDREW: “'Andrew, what do you want written on your tombstone?' I have options. One of them, sounds very pious, ‘He's not here. He is risen.' Or, like Oswald Chambers' gravestone I visited that graveyard in Zeitoun in Egypt. ‘Oswald Chambers: A disciple of Jesus Christ.' That gives glory to God. A disciple of Jesus Christ.” Close And that's The Worldview in 5 Minutes on this Monday, January 2nd, in the year of our Lord 2023. Subscribe by iTunes or email to our unique Christian newscast at www.TheWorldview.com.

Behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy for unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. You're no doubt familiar with that passage in Luke 2, given by angels to shepherds in Bethlehem. But there's an interesting backstory. Today, we'll talk with Jerry Bowyer about the economics of the Christmas Story. Economist Jerry Bowyer is a columnist at the Christian Post and WORLD News Group, contributor. He's also the author of The Maker Versus the Takers: What Jesus Really Said About Social Justice and Economics. Some might think that by talking about the economics of the Christmas Story. But with more than 2,000 Scriptures about money and possessions, God clearly sees economics as a spiritually important matter. In The Maker Versus the Takers, Bowyer writes about the The Economic Philosophy of the Virgin Mary. Bowyer discusses that on today's program and provides context for the Christmas Story that reveals entirely new understandings. He discusses Mary's Song of Praise, known as the the Magnificat, and its economic message? Bowyer also explains how the nativity narrative in Luke 2 begins with a description of economic exploitation. How so? He discusses what we can learn about the financial condition of Joseph and Mary, and how the birth of Jesus threatened the ruling temple class in Jerusalem. From Matthew, chapter 2, he talks about the story of the Magi and their unusually expensive gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh. Read more from Jerry Bowyer at WNG.org and the ChristianPost.com.
