What Does the Coming Government Report on UFOs Mean for Christians?

The U.S. government has been tasked by Congress to issue a report on Unidentified Flying Objects in June this year. UFO sightings have been reported for decades, and previous U.S. government reports have tended to discredit them, saying most sightings have natural explanations. Ufologists, those who follow UFO reports, investigate them and extensively report on them, claim the government is hiding information that should be made public. The hope is that this report will reveal all the government knows with honesty and transparency. But what does it mean for believers?

'You Cannot Stop the Gospel': Fences, Tarp Erected Around Canadian Church to Force Physical Closure

After spending over a month imprisoned for holding "illegal" church services, James Coates, pastor of GraceLife Church in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, has more hurdles to jump—this time in the form of literal fences built around the perimeter of his church.

As of 8:30 a.m., police vehicles and unmarked SUVs were blocking entrances to the church parking lot.

"Alberta Health Services physically closed GraceLife Church and has prevented access to the building until GLC can demonstrate the ability to comply with Alberta's chief medical officer of health's (CMOH) restrictions," AHS said in a statement obtained by Global News Wednesday morning.

WATCH: Senior Pastor, Sen. Warnock Shares Controversial Easter Message on Social Media

Yesterday, Christians across the globe celebrated the Resurrection of Jesus Christ, the event that split eternity and brought salvation to all those who believe in His name.

But Sen. Raphael Warnock, D-Ga., senior pastor of Atlanta's Ebenezer Baptist Church, wrote in an Easter tweet that "The meaning of Easter is more transcendent than the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Whether you are Christian or not, through a commitment to helping others we are able to save ourselves."

Beth Moore Apologizes for Role in Elevating Theology That Limits Women Leaders

First, she shook the evangelical world by leaving the Southern Baptist Convention. Now, Beth Moore, arguably the evangelical world's most famous Bible teacher, has begged forgiveness for supporting the theology of male headship rooted in many evangelical cultures.

In a Twitter thread Wednesday, April 7, Moore took aim at complementarianism, the 20th century theological framework that argues men and women were created for different roles and that effectively champions male headship and female submission.

For some evangelicals, complementarianism is a line in the sand. Those who question it are seen as undermining belief in the Bible. Moore said that was wrong.

"Please get out. Get out of this property. Immediately get out."

Pastor Artur Pawlowski, pastor of Calgary's Street Church in Alberta, Canada, gave this emphatic response to police, city and health department officers who interrupted a worship service he was holding Saturday at the Fortress (Cave) of Adullam per Calgary CTV News. The video he posted of this encounter has now gone viral, with a reported 1 million views as of Sunday morning, per the Washington Examiner.
