Global Slavery Will End!

“A new report claiming to be the most comprehensive look at global slavery says 30 million people are living as slaves around the world. The Global Slavery Index, published by the Australia-based Walk Free Foundation, lists India as the country with by far the most slaves, with an estimated nearly 14 million, followed by China (2.9 million) and Pakistan (2.1 million). The top 10 countries on its list… accounted for more than three quarters of the 29.8 million people living in slavery, with Nigeria, Ethiopia, Russia, Thailand, Democratic Republic of Congo, Myanmar and Bangladesh completing the list” (CNN, October 17, 2013). “Worldwide, almost 20% of all trafficking victims are children. However, in some parts of Africa and the Mekong region [southeast Asia], children are the majority (up to 100% in parts of West Africa)” (United Nations, 2009). Read More »

Murder in the Central African Republic (CAR)

Muslim violence against professing Christians is rising in many parts of the world. However, in the CAR, the brutal violence appears to be the reverse (Deutsche Welle, December 5, 2013). “Christians” and others, calling themselves Anti-Balaka (anti-machete) have joined together to form militias, claiming the need for self-defense. In this deteriorating situation, hundreds of thousands have been displaced by the violence, many aid organizations have pulled out of the region and the World Food Program has warned that “more than a million people in CAR are not getting enough to eat.  That is a quarter of the country’s population” (ibid.).

Banner Year for “Gay Rights”

“From twin pro-gay Supreme Court rulings, to the president of the United States referencing ‘our gay brothers and sisters’ in his inaugural address, to the first male pro athlete coming out of the closet, 2013 has been a ‘banner year’ for gay rights” (YahooNews, December 2, 2013). “Years of campaigning started paying off at warp speed, prompting Fred Sainz of the Human Rights Campaign to call 2013 ‘the gayest year in gay history’” (ibid.). “The change in public opinion in favor of same-sex marriage is among the most dramatic on any public-policy issue in the past decade. And much of that shift is due to young people, born after 1980, coming of age and bringing with them more liberal attitudes on the subject. Seventy percent of millennials aged 18 to 32 said they support same-sex marriage in a March 2013 Pew poll, almost twice the 38 percent of baby boomers who back it” (ibid.). Read More »

More "Rumors of Wars"

Last week, tensions erupted in the East China Sea when China declared an air defense perimeter around a group of islands currently controlled by Japan but claimed by China, South Korea, Japan and Taiwan (BBC, November 28, 2013). China also announced that its air force was prepared “to deal with all air threats” from unidentified aircraft (ibid.).  The air defense zone amounts to a claim to all the territory and resources within the contested perimeter. Subsequently, Chinese fighter jets monitored planes from South Korea, Japan and the U.S. that flew through the airspace, but there were no incidents. U.S. Vice President Joseph Biden is now in Asia attempting to calm growing tensions (Associated Press, December 3, 2013).   Read More »

U.S.A. Alienates Friends

As a result of the “deal” brokered by the U.S. with Iran to curtail Iran’s nuclear program (Associated Press, November 24, 2013), Israel and Saudi Arabia have been working behind the scenes to create a fallback plan should the “deal” fail, including the use of Saudi airspace for a potential attack on Iran.  The Saudis stand ready to “assist an Israeli attack by cooperating on the use of drones, rescue helicopters and tanker planes” (Jerusalem Post, November 17, 2013).

End of Christianity in Britain?

“Christianity is just a ‘generation away from extinction’ in Britain unless churches make a dramatic breakthrough in attracting young people back to the faith, the former Archbishop of Canterbury Lord Carey has warned” (Telegraph, November 18, 2013). “So many people do not see the average church as a place where great things happen… It is still the case that people are essentially looking for spiritual fulfilment” (ibid.). The former Archbishop noted, “So many churches have no ministry to young people and that means they have no interest in the future… We have to give cogent reasons to young people why the Christian faith is relevant to them” (ibid.). This is remarkable, when we read that the early Apostles figuratively “turned the world upside down” with their powerful message of the true Gospel (Acts 17:6). Read More »
