‘If men and women of faith and conviction don’t come to the rescue of their country, it is doomed’
Famed commentator Conrad Black wrote recently of President Trump’s Mount Rushmore speech on the July 4th weekend, and said those Republicans who now are opposing Trump, and thinking of aligning themselves with “the almost leaderless Democratic Party” will forever give up any political influence if they continue.
And libertarian conservative philosopher Thomas Sowell said that “point of no return” will be approaching for the entire nation should presumption Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden get elected.
“If the election goes to Biden,” he said, “there’s a good chance that the Democrats will then control the two branches of Congress and the White House. And considering the kinds of things that they’re proposing, that could well be the point of no return for this country.”
Christians in China say the latest wave of persecution against them is worse than what the church experienced during the height of Mao’s Cultural Revolution. Christians have suffered ongoing pressures under President Xi Jinping, but they say government oppression has intensified since the onset of the global Covid-19 pandemic earlier this year.
July 22nd, 2020: A loud knock on the door could be heard at the home of a woman in China’s Xiamen city. She told the police outside they could not enter her home without a permit.
Moments later, they destroy the lock and entered anyway, breaking up what the government said was an illegal meeting.
Four days later, on Sunday, July 26th, government workers removed the cross from the roof of Small River Christian Church in Xinfeng county, Jiangxi province.
These are just two recent examples – both incidents that occurred just days ago in the Chinese Communist Party’s crackdown on Christians and their churches.
China Aid President Bob Fu said this wave of persecution actually began in 2015, but now the Chinese Communist Party has a new excuse for targeting Christians.
“Now under this pretext of Covid-19 coronavirus, the Chinese Communist Party has intensified its persecution by banning all the church activities – even those worship services, prayer meetings in believers’ own homes with their own family members.”
The government has also used this as an excuse to arrest Christians who called for on-line prayer meetings.

Biggest news item to me is just the fact that with increase testing of covid-19 the general alarm has been sounded to expect a new wave of the virus. The more testing, the smaller the mortality rate.
Finally what is going on with the left? They really are depending on Biden? Their platform of socialism will really sell to Middle Americans?
Dr. Birx tells on a conference call to the faith community that churches spread covid more than any other place. Really? Ever heard of a nursing home? New York City? How about protesters? This is to prevent unity in the faith community. Churches has the least cases of any group bar none!!!!!
If your really follow the news, you know they (MSM) know nothing of what they say.
PRESIDENT TRUMP SIGNS EXECUTIVE ORDER ON ADVANCING RELIGIOUS FREEDOM
WASHINGTON, D.C. – On Tuesday, President Donald Trump signed an executive order to further protect religious freedom around the world. On behalf of the over two million members and supporters of the Faith & Freedom Coalition, we commend President Trump for making it absolutely clear that protecting religious freedom is a domestic and foreign policy priority.
The executive order outlines that the U.S. will budget at least $50 million per year for programs that advance international religious freedom. The White House will expand available economic tools to support our allies on religious freedom and address bad actors, whether by increasing religious freedom programming, realigning foreign assistance to better reflect country circumstances, restricting the issuance of visas, or deploying Global Magnitsky sanctions where appropriate. This order will also mandate more federal employees who work abroad to undergo training on international religious freedom.
“We are grateful to have a leader such as President Trump, who has made it so clear that he supports religious freedom and wants everyone to worship God freely,” said Timothy Head, executive director of the Faith & Freedom Coalition. “Our brothers and sisters are facing severe persecution around the world for their faith. Through this Executive Order, Trump is showing that he cares for the persecuted and is reaching out to protect and help them.”
In September 2019, President Donald J. Trump made history as the first American President to convene a meeting of global leaders at the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) to address International Religious Freedom. The President was clear when he called upon “the nations of the world to end religious persecution.” This Executive Order fully integrates the President’s vision – a vigorous defense of International Religious Freedom rights for all – into key aspects of United States foreign policy. Yet again, President Trump is taking a decisive action to keep his promise to people of faith around the world.
Our prayers go out to the victims of the most recent acts of evil and hate. Never forget that guns do not pick themselves up, load and aim by themselves. Sick and evil people do that. Not the time for political blame game. We will most certainly hear a cry to take our guns. But evil people will always find a way to kill. I pray for the families and pray for a change in our society. Less hate, less fear and more of the good Lord.
