Pray For the Persecuted Church

November 5th was the International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church. Hundreds of millions of Christians around the world live in nations where they face severe persecution for their faith.

As a former Trump appointee to the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom, I am all too aware of the dangers many Christians endure for a right far too many Americans take for granted.

Every Sunday around the world, Christians often leave humble homes and walk miles with their families to worship Jesus Christ. They do this knowing that it may be the last thing they do on this earth. Every Sunday, churches in Africa, Asia and elsewhere are attacked. Our brothers and sisters in Christ are murdered, raped and imprisoned.

For example, Nigerian Christians are routinely slaughtered by militant Islamists. Christians in the Palestinian territories of the West Bank and Gaza Strip are frequently attacked and discriminated against. And as I have repeatedly warned, China is waging war against all faiths, including Christianity.

Chinese Christians are being forced to take down pictures of Jesus and worship the communist dictator instead. The Chinese Communist Party is even rewriting the Bible!

If your pastor did not mention Christian persecution overseas on November 5th, please encourage him to make it a priority in future sermons, as well as planning early for next year's International Day of Prayer.

As we pray for our fellow believers who suffer in countries without religious liberty, let's redouble our efforts as Christian citizens to defend our religious liberty, which is increasingly under attack here in the United States.

Will The United Nations Be Your Doctor?

Opposition is building to a proposed World Health Organization (WHO) pandemic treaty. JDFI has been sounding the alarm for months, but the Biden administration has continued its negotiations with WHO. Under the proposed changes, WHO, a United Nations entity, would have sweeping new powers over public health authorities and elected officials in the U.S. and around the world. In addition, all signs point to the treaty not being sent to the Senate for ratification, but being agreed to, unilaterally, by the White House.

The Blessing of Living in America

Do you think it was a surprise to God that you were born in America, or have had the good fortune of legally immigrating to America? Of course, He wasn't surprised. In fact, the Lord chose to give you the greatest blessing anybody can possibly have by beginning your life here in a nation built on the truth that your liberty comes from the God who created you.
