Monkeypox, STDs, Violating God's Divine Order and Receiving Mercy

The latest report on the transmission of monkeypox confirms that it is spread overwhelmingly by men who have sex with men. What should we conclude from this?

In the early days of AIDS, it was commonplace to hear preachers refer to this "homosexual disease" as a judgment from God.

As recounted by Michael Christensen on the Ministry Matters website, "When I was a pastor in San Francisco, many Christians viewed AIDS as a sign of the end of the world. I kept busy countering the predominant apocalyptic view in evangelical and fundamentalist churches that 'AIDS was God's judgment on the homosexual lifestyle' or as 'punishment for IV drug use.' I remember trying to help people process (including those in my own congregation) why it was that those whose behavior put them at high risk got AIDS from a virus, not as a punishment from God for immorality."

Jew Ben Shapiro Says Atheism 'Far More Murderous' Than Any Other Theocracy in History

Conservative commentator Ben Shapiro detailed the "deepest problem of atheism" in a Facebook post Sunday, arguing the biggest problem is it "cannot establish a moral framework."

Shapiro, who is Jewish, opened the post by noting many nonbelievers will turn to the "sins of believers" to explain why they oppose God and faith.

The key question these non-theists will ask is, "If religion is good, why are religious believers often so bad?" But Shapiro explained some of the problems with this thought process.

Will American Christendom Die in the Collegiate Classrooms?

In June, I wrote of our experience at Harvard Law School graduation where New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern's commencement address sounded much more like an expository sermon advancing religious secularism than a keynote address to honor graduating seniors.

This shouldn't come as a surprise when keeping in mind that the last three or four generations of America's youth have been instructed and schooled by secular collectivists spouting radically godless persuasion. It stands as further proof of the forlorn reality that the way of the wicked prevails over God's authority and rule in present-day America.

Even more proof that secularism's promoters and propagandists possess controlling influence over American education was provided some days ago. Our second son-in-law will be entering the University of Michigan Medical School [UMMS] this fall. He participated in the White Coat Ceremony, a wonderful tradition at UMMS in which incoming medical school matriculants are welcomed and given a lab coat and stethoscope as they begin their career in medicine.
