Southern Poverty defends its attacks on Christians


WND EXCLUSIVE 

Chief says those who refuse to support homosexuality spreading 'seeds of hate'

Published: 2 days ago



Bob Unruh






The left-wing Southern Poverty Law Center, which has been in the spotlight recently for its practice of designating conservative non-profits as “hate groups,” has gone on defense.

Richard Cohen, the president of SPLC, which has been linked to a domestic terror attack, wrote in a Huffington Post commentary that Christians deserve the designation because they “sow the seeds of hate.”

For adhering to a biblical perspective on homosexuality, for one thing.

The Family Research Council, wrote Cohen, has a “long track record of using dehumanizing language and outright lies to portray LGBT people as sick, evil, and a danger to children and society. As stated on its website, it opposes the acceptance of homosexuality ‘in the law, in the media, and in the schools.'”

He also renewed his group’s attacks on the conservative Center for Immigration Studies.

“It’s a group whose immigration agenda is colored by ethnic bias,” he claimed.

SPLC’s defense of its activities comes on the heels of a lawsuit against the charity-monitoring organization GuideStar over its use of SPLC’s “hate” designations.

The Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability warned GuideStar its use of false SPLC claims to undermine Christian organizations was damaging its own credibility.



Pope Calls for Dialogue and Moderation After Jerusalem Violence





Sunday, 23 Jul 2017 06:57 AM


Pope Francis said on Sunday he was alarmed by the recent violence in Jerusalem and called for dialogue and moderation to help restore peace.

"I am following with trepidation the grave tension and violence of recent days in Jerusalem. I feel the need to express a heartfelt call for moderation and dialogue," the pope told pilgrims gathered under blazing sunshine in St Peter's Square.

He called for prayers in the hope that all sides would come forward with proposals for "reconciliation and peace".


Three Israelis were stabbed to death in a Jewish settlement in the Israeli-occupied West Bank on Friday, hours after three Palestinians were killed in violence prompted by Israel's installation of metal detectors at entry points to the Noble Sanctuary-Temple Mount compound in Jerusalem's walled Old City.




It’s time for N.D. to end the blue laws

Jul 21, 2017




North Dakota Secretary of State Al Jaeger, left, talks with Brandon Medenwald in his state Capitol office in Bismarck after Medenwald delivered the proposed language for an initiated ballot measure to remove the state's Sunday blue laws. The measure would ask voters to repeal and amend the state constitution regarding limited Sunday retail sales of merchandise and hours of operation. Medenwald, committee chairman for the initiated measure, said once the language is approved by Jaeger's office, volunteers will seek about 20,000 signatures of the 13,000 needed by July 9, 2018, to be on the November 2018 ballot. MIKE MCCLEARY, TRIBUNE


An effort is underway to get a measure on the November 2018 ballot to repeal the state’s remaining blue laws. Secretary of State Al Jaeger’s office is reviewing the proposal and draft petition language. If approved, organizers can begin circulating petitions. About 13,450 signatures are needed to get the measure on ballot.

The 2017 Legislature rejected efforts to repeal the remaining Sunday restrictions. The Tribune Editorial Board believes voters will, and should, approve the measure.

The state has slowly whittled away at the blue laws. Until the 1980s the state required businesses to stay closed on Sundays, but in 1985 grocery stores were allowed to open. The Legislature in 1991 let most businesses open at noon on Sundays. In 2015, the Legislature allowed restaurants and bars to serve alcohol starting at 11 a.m. on Sundays.

Blue laws were intended to allow families time to rest, relax and attend church. The restrictions were greatly influenced by religion, despite a state Supreme Court ruling saying otherwise. By 1985 much had changed and there have been more societal changes in the 32 years since the first repeal.

The Sealing and the Latter Rain



July 23

Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, Let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity. 2 Timothy 2:19


Before the work is closed up and the sealing of God's people is finished, we shall receive the outpouring of the Spirit of God. Angels from heaven will be in our midst.

Our heavenly Father claims not at our hands that which we cannot perform. He desires His people to labor earnestly to carry out His purpose for them. They are to pray for power, expect power, and receive power, that they may grow up into the full stature of men and women in Christ Jesus.

Not all members of the church are cultivating personal piety; therefore they do not understand their personal responsibility. They do not realize that it is their privilege and duty to reach the high standard of Christian perfection.... Are we looking forward to the latter rain, confidently hoping for a better day, when the church shall be endued with power from on high and thus fitted for work? The latter rain will never refresh and invigorate the indolent, who do not use the powers God has given them.

We are in great need of the pure, life-giving atmosphere that nurtures and invigorates the spiritual life. We need greater earnestness. The solemn message given us to give to the world is to be proclaimed with greater fervency, even with an intensity that will impress unbelievers, leading them to see that the Most High is working with us, that He is the source of our efficiency and strength....

Are you using all your powers in an effort to bring the lost sheep back to the fold? There are thousands upon thousands in ignorance who might be warned. Pray as you have never prayed before for the power of Christ. Pray for the inspiration of His Spirit, that you may be filled with a desire to save those who are perishing. Let the prayer ascend to heaven, “God be merciful unto us, and bless us; and cause his face to shine upon us; that thy way may be known upon earth, thy saving health among all nations” (Psalm 67:1, 2).

Pope Francis, the Fox



June 2, 2017




By Richard Bennett

In Pope Francis’ encyclical, “Laudato Si’, mi’ Signore” (“Praise be to you, my Lord”): On The Common Care Of Our Home,[1] the Pope identifies himself as “the Holy Father,” and as a Christian. Nevertheless, Francis teaches the following in this encyclical,



“In the words of this beautiful canticle, Saint Francis of Assisi reminds us that our common home is like a sister with whom we share our life and a beautiful mother who opens her arms to embrace us. ‘Praise be to you, my Lord, through our Sister, Mother Earth, who sustains and governs us, and who produces various fruit with colored flowers and herbs.’”



Is Francis endorsing the idea that the earth “governs us” rather than the Lord? Nowhere in the Bible is the earth called “Mother” or “sister.” This is demonic theology rooted in the “mystery religion” of Babylon. Anthropomorphizing the earth, especially as female, has always been a mark of pagan and Satanic worship. As Alexander Hislop points out,



“It has been known all along that Popery was baptized Paganism; but God is now making it manifest, that the Paganism which Rome has baptized is, in all its essential elements, the very Paganism which prevailed in the ancient literal Babylon...”[2]



Pope Francis is first and foremost a Jesuit. As a Jesuit, he is known to be cunning as a fox. In the third paragraph of the encyclical, he clearly specifies a crisis and targets his intended audience. “Now, faced as we are with global environmental deterioration, I wish to address every person living on this planet…about our common home.”[3] It remains to be seen, then, why Pope Francis has so early in his reign come forth with a statement of gross paganism as part of his supposedly Christian world view.

Jesuit Extreme Oath of Induction






The following is the Jesuit Extreme Oath of Induction given to high ranking Jesuits only. This oath is taken from the book Subterranean Rome by Carlos Didier, translated from the French, and published in New York in 1843.

"When a Jesuit of the minor rank is to be elevated to command, he is conducted into the Chapel of the Convent of the Order, where there are only three others present, the principal or Superior standing in front of the altar. On either side stands a monk, one of whom holds a banner of yellow and white, which are the Papal colors, and the other a black banner with a dagger and red cross above a skull and crossbones, with the word INRI, and below them the words IUSTUM, NECAR, REGES, IMPIOUS. The meaning of which is: It is just to exterminate or annihilate impious or heretical Kings, Governments, or Rulers. Upon the floor is a red cross at which the postulant or candidate kneels. The Superior hands him a small black crucifix, which he takes in his left hand and presses to his heart, and the Superior at the same time presents to him a dagger, which he grasps by the blade and holds the point against his heart, the Superior still holding it by the hilt, and thus addresses the postulant:"

Superior:

My son, heretofore you have been taught to act the dissembler: among Roman Catholics to be a Roman Catholic, and to be a spy even among your own brethren; to believe no man, to trust no man. Among the Reformers, to be a reformer; among the Huguenots, to be a Huguenot; among the Calvinists, to be a Calvinist; among other Protestants, generally to be a Protestant, and obtaining their confidence, to seek even to preach from their pulpits, and to denounce with all the vehemence in your nature our Holy Religion and the Pope; and even to descend so low as to become a Jew among Jews, that you might be enabled to gather together all information for the benefit of your Order as a faithful soldier of the Pope.

You have been taught to insidiously plant the seeds of jealousy and hatred between communities, provinces, states that were at peace, and incite them to deeds of blood, involving them in war with each other, and to create revolutions and civil wars in countries that were independent and prosperous, cultivating the arts and the sciences and enjoying the blessings of peace. To take sides with the combatants and to act secretly with your brother Jesuit, who might be engaged on the other side, but openly opposed to that with which you might be connected, only that the Church might be the gainer in the end, in the conditions fixed in the treaties for peace and that the end justifies the means.

Attention California Employers: Action Required for Ensuring Compliance with California’s “Day of Rest” Requirements




USA July 18 2017


Under California law, employees are entitled to “one day’s rest therefrom in seven,” unless certain statutory exceptions apply. In Mendoza v. Nordstrom, Inc., 2 Cal. 5th 1074 (2017), the California Supreme Court addressed several ambiguities in the statutory language, giving employers much needed guidance on how to comply with California’s day of rest requirements. As noted below, employers should review their handbooks and scheduling policies to ensure they are in compliance with these requirements, as clarified by the Court.

By way of background, California Labor Code section 551 entitles employees to “one day’s rest therefrom in seven,” and section 552 similarly prohibits an employer from “caus[ing] his employees to work more than six days in seven.” Section 556 creates an exception to these requirements for employees whose “total hours of employment do not exceed 30 hours in any week or six hours in any one day thereof.”

UN deputy chief highlights importance of public institutions in reaching development goals




Amina J. Mohammed of Nigeria. UN Photo/Mark Garten



18 July 2017 – United Nations Deputy Secretary-General Amina Mohammed today urged public institutions to embrace the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and its 17 Goals (SDGs) to end poverty, reduce inequality and end tackle climate change.

“When the centre of government functions effectively, collective expertise from across the public sector can be mobilized and brought to bear on the most pressing decisions confronting a country,” the Deputy Secretary-General told a high-level event on getting Governments organized to deliver on the SDGs.

She said that Governments and public institutions will work out how best Governments can reach the SDGs, but only “if it is driven by visionary and committed public leadership, adequate resources and capacity and the exchange of lessons learned.”

Addressing the event, organized in part by the UN Department for Economic and Social Affairs (UNDESA), Ms. Mohammed noted that the SDGs call for Governments to listen to the people and engage them in decision-making.

She stressed that Government mobilize all actors around the SDGs, and ensure that institutions are effective, accountable and inclusive.

“Few tasks are more important for the effective functioning of government than leadership and coordination from the top of the executive branch,” Ms. Mohammed said.

She noted that the 17 SDGs are focused on putting people first and leaving no one behind: “No one is too hard to reach.”

The event was held as part of the High-Level Political Forum on Sustainable Development, which started on 10 July and wraps up tomorrow, and which this year focuses on eliminating poverty.

The annual forum is designed to be a platform for discussing implementation of the anti-poverty agenda, and for Governments to learn from each other.

This year's discussions include presentations on the challenges and gaps in reaching the development agenda in 44 countries that volunteered to give progress reports, and more than 120 side events related to the SDGs.

Among today's other events related to the HLPF was the SDG Business Forum.






God's People Brought to the Test


July 20

Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity. Matthew 7:22, 23.


We need not be deceived. Wonderful scenes, with which Satan will be closely connected, will soon take place. God's Word declares that Satan will work miracles. He will make people sick, and then will suddenly remove from them his satanic power. They will then be regarded as healed. These works of apparent healing will bring Seventh-day Adventists to the test. Many who have had great light will fail to walk in the light, because they have not become one with Christ.

I saw our people in great distress, weeping, and praying, pleading the sure promises of God, while the wicked were all around us, mocking us, and threatening to destroy us. They ridiculed our feebleness, they mocked at the smallness of our numbers, and taunted us with words calculated to cut deep. They charged us with taking an independent position from all the rest of the world. They had cut off our resources so that we could not buy nor sell, and referred to our abject poverty and stricken condition. They could not see how we could live without the world; we were dependent upon the world, and we must concede to the customs, practices, and laws of the world, or go out of it. If we were the only people in the world whom the Lord favored the appearances were awfully against us. They declared that they had the truth, that miracles were among them, that angels from heaven talked with them, and walked with them, that great power, and signs and wonders were performed among them, and this was the Temporal Millennium, which they had been expecting so long. The whole world was converted and in harmony with the Sunday law, and this little feeble people stood out in defiance of the laws of the land, and the laws of God, and claimed to be the only ones right on the earth.

God's people will not find their safety in working miracles, for Satan would counterfeit any miracle that might be worked.... They are to take their stand on the living Word—“It is written.”

Adventist Leader in Southern England Meets with Local Imam




Meeting highlights opportunities for collaboration, understanding.

JULY 17, 2017

By: Sam O. Davies, British Union Conference News

On Tuesday, July 4, South England Conference (SEC) church region president Emmanuel Osei visited Imam Toufik Kacimi, who is also the Chief Executive Officer of the Finsbury Park Muslim Welfare House, in London, to deliver words of sympathy and condolences in the aftermath of the Finsbury Park terror attack.

“On behalf of the members of the Seventh-day Adventist Church in the South England Conference, I want to express our shock and dismay at the appalling and senseless attack on innocent worshippers that took place on June 19 at your Muslim Welfare House in Finsbury Park,” said Osei to Kacimi. “We want you to know that as members of faith, we do sympathize with the trauma caused by this evil act, and we totally condemn it.”

The June 19 attack, which was labeled a hate crime, resulted in the death of one Muslim worshipper, and several wounded as a van driver struck pedestrians coming out of the mosque. Two persons are still in a critical condition, according to Kacimi.

Vatican Commences Trial for Embezzlement of Funds Meant for Children’s Hospital

18 Jul, 2017 18 Jul, 2017

A Vatican criminal process against two men charged with redirecting funds earmarked for a children’s hospital to refurbish a cardinal’s apartment began Tuesday with a two-hour pretrial hearing.

Giuseppe Profiti and Massimo Spina are former directors of a foundation overseeing the Vatican’s Bambino Gesù pediatric hospital and have been charged with embezzling foundation funds to help finance the remodeling of the apartment of Italian Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone, former Vatican Secretary of State.

Bertone himself, however, is not being investigated and faces no charges.

According to a statement read by a court clerk, Profiti and Spina are accused of an illicit appropriation and use of funds belonging to the Bambino Gesù Foundation to pay Gianantonio Bandera, an Italian contractor, to refurbish an apartment belonging to Vatican City State and used as the residence of Cardinal Bertone.

Less than one-third of Protestants in the United States identify with a specific denomination of the religion.

The results of a new Gallup survey show that 30 percent of U.S. Protestants identify with one of the many branches of this particular form of Christianity, down from 50 percent in 2000.


Other findings in the survey:
Baptists represent 10 percent of Protestants who identify with a branch of the religion.
Methodists and Lutherans make up 4 percent, followed by Southern Baptists (3 percent), Presbyterians and Pentecostal (2 percent), and Church of Christ and Episcopalians (1 percent).
Three percent of those who identity with a branch of Protestantism selected "other."

The data represents 2016 numbers.


The results of another recent poll showed that 74 percent of white evangelical Protestants approved of President Donald Trump's job performance. Only 38 percent of Catholics said the same.


Since Trump took office in January, meanwhile, Christian refugees coming to the U.S. outnumber Muslim refugees.
