It's Wednesday, October 12th, A.D. 2022. This is The Worldview in 5 Minutes heard at www.TheWorldview.com. I'm Adam McManus. (Adam@TheWorldview.com) By Jonathan Clark The danger of being a Christian in Communist China International Christian Concern released their Chinese persecution incident report for July 2021 through June 2022. China's government is intensifying its crackdown on state-authorized churches and underground churches: “There is no longer a safe place to be a Christian in China.” The report documented 32 cases of arrests and detainments, five raids on Christian schools, and 20 cases of officials inserting Chinese Communist Party messaging into churches. Given the limited flow of information from China, the real number of incidents is likely much higher. Worldwide economic decline The International Monetary Fund forecasts global economic growth to slow from 6% in 2021 to 3.2% in 2022 and 2.7% in 2023. Meanwhile, the IMF expects global inflation to rise from 4.7% in 2021 to 8.8% in 2022, but to decline to 6.5% in 2023. The International Monetary Fund report stated, “The worst is yet to come, and for many people, 2023 will feel like a recession.” Australia's hostility to Christians Last Monday, one of Australia's leading sports teams named a new CEO, 57-year-old Andrew Thorburn. However, a day later, the Essendon Football Club had already ejected Thorburn over his Christian faith. He is a member of an Australian-based Evangelical church, City on a Hill. The church opposes sexually perverted lifestyles and abortion. Thorburn wrote in a statement, “Today, it became clear to me that my personal Christian faith is not tolerated or permitted in the public square . . . I was being required to compromise beyond a level that my conscience allowed.” Psalm 40:4 says, “Blessed is that man who makes the LORD his trust, and does not respect the proud, nor turn aside to lies.” Medical center pauses transgender surgeries on minors Last Friday, a medical center in Nashville, Tennessee announced it will pause body-mutilating surgeries on minors. Thanks to the leadership of Republican Tennessee state Rep. Jason Zachary, Tennessee House Republicans called for Vanderbilt University Medical Center to immediately halt the transgender surgeries. Lawmakers are demanding an investigation into the medical center following an expose on it by The Daily Wire's Matt Walsh, the author of the book entitled What Is a Woman?: One Man's Journey to Answer the Question of a Generation. In an interview on Mike Huckabee's show last week, Walsh said the medical center is destroying children's health for money. WALSH: “They are performing double mastectomies on minor girls as young as 16 years old to try to masculinize them, and turn them into boys. They're giving drugs to kids as young as 13, irreversible cross hormone drugs. They're giving so-called puberty blockers, which are chemical castration drugs, to kids even younger than that. “We also found videos where they have one doctor who's very proudly talking about how one of the reasons they got into this business is because there's lots of money to be made. And, in fact, she said it's a big moneymaker.” Dozens of abortion mills have stopped baby-killing In the 100 days following the U.S. Supreme Court's decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, the Guttmacher Institute reports dozens of abortions mills have stopped murdering unborn babies. Across 15 states with near-total or six-week abortion bans, 66 locations have stopped doing abortions, and 26 of those locations have shut down entirely. Before the Supreme Court Dobbs decision, the 15 states had 79 locations doing abortions. As of October 2, there were 13, all located in the state of Georgia. Study on Bible, Jesus, and teens reveals good and bad news And finally, Barna released a new survey on what teens around the world think about Jesus and the Bible. At 46%, the top perception of Jesus by teens was that He offers hope to people. However, only 23% of teens said they have a personal relationship with Jesus. On the subject of the Bible, less than 40% of teens said the Bible connects with their everyday life. However, 80% of Bible-engaged teens connected the Bible with their life's meaning and purpose. 1 Timothy 4:12 says, “Let no one despise your youth, but be an example to the believers in word, in conduct, in love, in spirit, in faith, in purity.” Close And that's The Worldview in 5 Minutes on this Wednesday, October 12th, in the year of our Lord 2022.

Andrew Thorburn was chief executive of the Australian Football League club Essendon only a day before reports emerged that he was also the lay board chairman of an Anglican church called City on a Hill. When people dug into past sermons from City on a Hill, they discovered biblical truths about sexuality and abortion, which caused public outrage. Thorburn resigned his position as a result, stating, “Today it became clear to me that my personal Christian faith is not tolerated or permitted in the public square, at least by some and perhaps by many. I was being required to compromise beyond a level that my conscience allowed.” Author: Jim Denison, PhD Narrator: Chris Elkins Subscribe: http://www.denisonforum.org/subscribe

The Pastor's Heart with Dominic Steele
Four leading Victorian Christian leaders on the controversy that has erupted in Australian National Politics - around the chair of the Victorian based City on a Hill church movement Andrew Thorburn, over his appointment as CEO of the Essendon Football Club and then almost immediate resignation. When faced with an ultimatum to choose between his church and his new position at Essendon, Thorburn chose his church. Melbourne's Herald Sun started the controversy by publishing quotes from two ten year old sermons from City on a Hill on abortion and homosexuality. Victoria's Premier Daniel Andrews described City on a Hill's mainstream Christian views as appalling, intolerant, bigoted, hatred and wrong.

Another week, and another AFL club has outed themselves as a bunch of apparent amateurs – at least when it comes to their ability to retain a CEO for more than a day. Andrew Thorburn, the man hired to try and steer the Essendon club towards a more prosperous future on and off the field did his best impression of Grandpa Simpson at a bordello this week. – walking out of the door of Bomberland before he had time to even take off his coat. The reason for his swift departure was his other job – as boss of the City on a Hill church. You wouldn't think being so high up in a church would be incompatible with being the boss of an AFL club. But some of the beliefs that church espouse are so backward that Mr Thorburn had no choice but to walking towards the car park when they became public knowledge. On couples of same sex, the church apparently thinks -- “Practising homosexuality is a sin.” On the right of women to choose whether to continue a pregnancy, the church said this – “Future generations will look back with sadness at the legal murder of hundreds of thousands of human beings every day through medicine and in the name of freedom.” These were not the words of Mr Thorburn himself. But were clear and present views of the church he leads. And in explaining his resignation, and his position, Mr Thorburn said he was not aware of them – or of the 2013 sermon given by a pastor which was available at the click of a computer button. He seems to think that absolve him somehow – but as most lawyers will tell you, ignorance is no excuse. The departure has kicked off a vigorous debate about whether people are now being “cancelled” unfairly because of their religious beliefs. A valid debate to have – which I think those who use their religion to excuse intolerance will lose. But the Thorburn debacle also raises another question about how professional AFL clubs really are. If those hiring Thorburn didn't know about his church and their outdate views, then that is a damning indictment on them and their processes. How – when hiring someone to such an important role – could you possibly not do even the most basic of due diligence? That beggars belief. And it also puts another dent in the game's claim to be the “elite” sporting code in this country.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
John Steenhof, Principal Lawyer at the Human Rights Law Alliance, joined Jonathan for another conversation about the kinds of cases he works in the religious freedom/discrimination space. The conversation was scheduled prior to, but coinciding with, the the eruption of the Andrew Thorburn case—the CEO of the Essendon Football club forced to resign his position just 24 hours after being appointed because of his affiliation with a church. So while the pair do still discuss a number of recent freedom of religion/discrimination cases in Australia at the beginning of the conversation, they naturally end up focusing on the Thorburn episode and its implications for pluralism, religious freedom and the place of Christianity in contemporary Australian culture. The Political Animals is hosted by Dr Jonathan Cole, an academic, writer, speaker and translator specialising in political theology: the intersection of religion and politics.

Victorian opposition leader calls Andrew Thorburn's resignation as Essendon CEO ‘ridiculous' Victoria's opposition leader, Matthew Guy, has described Andrew Thorburn's resignation as Essendon chief executive over links to a church condemning homosexuality and abortion as “ridiculous”. The football club on Tuesday said Thorburn felt he could not serve in both roles and had offered his resignation, despite not holding the same personal views as his church. Thorburn was appointed to the role on Monday but resigned on Tuesday afternoon after sermons by the City on a Hill church, of which he is chairman, were made public. The sermons likened abortion to a concentration camp and included claims that “practising homosexuality is a sin” – views which the premier, Daniel Andrews, said were “absolutely appalling”. On Wednesday, the opposition leader criticised the premier for weighing in to the debate, which he said encroached too far into private religious views. “What are we now banning people from going to church, banning people from going to a synagogue, banning people from going to a mosque? Where have we got? This is ridiculous,” Guy told 3AW radio. Premier Daniel Andrews says “I've had a longstanding view that termination services are a private matter between a woman and her doctor and I will speak out against people who seek to intrude on that. “What's more, when it comes to rampant homophobia, when I lead the Pride march every year … I do that with a sense of genuine concern and support and commitment to make sure every LGBTIQ+ Victorian is safe, respected and valued.” Andrews said same-sex-attracted young people were more likely to take their own lives or self-harm than the broader Victorian community.

"The Week on Wednesday" with Van Badham & Ben Davison
Van Badham and Ben Davison open by looking at the sweeping reforms of paid family and domestic violence leave and enshrining an employers responsibility to prevent sexual harassment in the workplace that the union movement in Australia has won and how women leaders make societies, and social movements, better (you can join at australianunions.org.au/wow). Our hosts contrast this democratic advancement with the repressive regime in Iran and the violence that oppression of women in Iran has created. The killing of Mahsa Amini and the weeks of violent clashes, government suppression, mass arrests and murders has some suggesting that the Iranian people have had enough of the theocratic regime. Van and Ben explore what's been happening, why it is happening and what might be next. In Australia, disgraced former NAB CEO Andrew Thorburn has resigned as CEO of Essendon football club after 30 hours in the job. Van and Ben unpack how this multi-millionaire with powerful political connections, who was slammed by the banking royal commission, was engaged to review the club, managed to become CEO and when told he had to choose between his role as chairman of the "City on a hill church" or his paid employment at Essendon football club he chose to quit his job. Warning: The rich, white, male, privileged whining that Thorburn has since embarked on gets thoroughly dismantled and his time as NAB CEO critically examined. The good news is that Tanya Plibersek has announced the Albanese government's plan to prevent species extinction in Australia!

Essendon is searching for its third chief executive in 40 days after the bombshell resignation of Andrew Thorburn just one day after he was appointed, following revelations he was also chairman of a church organisation with controversial views on abortion and homosexuality. Julie Colvin, a managing partner at Derwent Search, which specialises in high level recruitment and is the largest firm in Australia for board and executive appointments, says the cause of concern here is the fact it is a very public role. She told Mornings host Liam Bartlett due diligence should have been taken at the interview process, such as what other commitments or leadership positions did Thorburn hold. "Certainly a Christian can still take on a role as a chief executive," she said, before adding it was whether they could align with the values of that organisation.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

‘I have different views': Essendon chief opens up on controversial church Essendon chief executive Andrew Thorburn admits the church of which he is chairman has views which are offensive and upsetting to some, but insists his business record shows he is welcoming and endorses diversity. Thorburn has taken charge of the Bombers at the end of a tumultuous season for the club, but his appointment has also generated unwanted headlines, primarily because of his involvement with The City on a Hill church movement. The former NAB chief executive plays a key role in a church which, in a sermon, likens abortion to a concentration camp, and says practising homosexuality is a sin. Thorburn's personal beliefs could upset the Bombers' AFLW side, which preaches diversity and inclusiveness, as well as the Purple Bombers, the club's official diversity and inclusion supporter group. The Purple Bombers were contacted for comment. Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews, a Bombers supporter, had a strong response when asked on Tuesday about the views expressed by Thorburn's church, but acknowledged the CEO's appointment was a matter for the club's board. “All of you know my views on these things. Those sort of attitudes are simply wrong, and to dress that up as anything other than bigotry is just obviously false. Christianity is inherently offensive. It teaches that people are born broken and can't fix themselves, and that submission to God is the only solution. It teaches that the intelligent, the wealthy, the powerful, and the influential aren't necessarily better off than anybody else. It teaches that our best efforts to do good on our own are all but wasted. It teaches that allegiance to God is more important than allegiance to your family…and that, if you have to choose, you should choose God. It teaches that some actions are wrong, even if they feel good. It teaches that the things that we brag about in our selfishness and immaturity are less important than the things that nobody sees, and get no earthly reward. This is just my opinion.

In this episode, Jeannette talks to the entrepreneur and rugby star Paul Thorburn, who played 300 matches for Neath and 37 international matches for Wales, 10 of them as captain. He holds the record for the longest successful kick in an international test match. He gained the record during the 1986 Five Nations Championship at Cardiff Arms Park against Scotland. His penalty kick measured exactly 64.2 metres. He explains the role that having a winning mindset had in his sporting success and how he has applied what he learned while playing rugby to the world of business. Paul shares the details of his journey through life, so far. Including, how despite initially failing his A levels he resat and passed them so that he could attend Swansea university. There he got access to high-level coaching, which enabled him to excel at the sport he loved. Paul also explains how he prepared himself to become a successful entrepreneur and business consultant once his sporting career was over. KEY TAKEAWAYS Being in the right place at the right time plays a role in a successful career. But you have to recognise and take the opportunities. Team sport benefits people in many ways. You form strong, long-lasting relationships with your teammates. Having a winning mindset only produces results if you are disciplined about your training and preparation. Analysing your performance is an essential component of personal growth. Put any personal differences with team members aside and respect them. Employing experts to take care of different aspects of your business is vital. If you have an aspiration, go for it. Be true to yourself and give people the respect you would like to receive yourself. BEST MOMENTS ‘You make your own luck. ´ ‘Neath was the first (rugby) club to start having individual performance analysis.' ‘I apply the same (business) principles, regardless of my clients sector. A business is a business.' This is the perfect time to get focused on what YOU want to really achieve in your business, career, and life. It's never too late to be BRAVE and BOLD and unlock your inner BRILLIANCE.

He spent his childhood in various RAF Stations across England and was educated in a boarding school. He went on to study Microbiology at Swansea University. At that stage in his life, his main focus was his rugby career. He played 300 matches for Neath and went on to play for the Welsh national team 37 times. Including captaining the Welsh team on 10 occasions. After graduating he started work with a security business, but within 18 months then moved into a sector to use my qualifications and I started working for Glaxo Pharmaceuticals in a business development role, promoting their range of pharmaceutical products to the GPs and Pharmacists in South Wales. In 1991, he joined the Welsh Development Agency (WDA). A Government funded quango, tasked with attracting investment projects into Wales. His role, as one of the Project Managers, was to assist in securing foreign direct investment into Wales – these organisations included automotive component manufacturers, consumer electronics manufacturers, biotechnology companies, service industries and financial institutions. After a 5-year career with the WDA, John was then appointed Tournament Director for the 1999 Rugby World Cup Tournament, my role here was to deliver the World's largest International Rugby Tournament. This one was the first one to be staged following the decision to make rugby a professional sport. Wales was the official host Nation, but the 42 International matches were spread across Wales, England, Scotland, Ireland, and France, with the Opening Ceremony, the Opening match and the Final taking place at the New Millennium Stadium. As Tournament Director, John´s role was to put the event together, delivering the venues, training grounds, the hotels for participants and all the Officials, the team, and the official logistics programme, including overseas travel for the Teams, Officials; the medical provision; the Ceremonies and Official functions during the 7-week event. This was a 4-year contract, which ended in March 2000, on completion of the Tournament reports and reconciliation of the Tournament finances and distribution of the monies to the hosting Unions. After 4 years working as an Executive Search and Selection Consultant, recruiting senior Execs into Public and Private sector roles, John returned to the professional world of rugby. He joined the Welsh Rugby Union as a Special Projects Manager, a role which included working on the pre-event preparations for the 2007 Rugby World Cup, and assisting the Official Hosts, France in delivering the event. As well as overusing the Commercial programme for the Welsh Rugby Union, securing sponsorship for International events, as well sponsorship for the domestic rugby programme in Wales, also securing and managing the Licensing programme – merchandise etc. In 2006, John was appointed Strategic Development Manager for the Ospreys, one of the professional rugby clubs in Wales. In essence, he oversaw the commercial programme for the club, securing sponsorship, and all other income generation activities. In 2010, John left the world of rugby, setting up his own Business Development consultancy, where he works alongside a handful of diverse organisations, assisting them in securing contracts with private and/or public sector clients, working in the construction, financial services, telecoms, and recruitment arenas. John is also the Secretary of Cardiff Business Club, one of the longest established clubs in the UK, which has HRH The Prince of Wales as its patron.
