Here's a quick summary of the top stories featured on charismanews.com:
In some respects, Canada has been a step ahead of America in terms of moral and cultural decline. That means that what happens in Canada today—and I mean what happens in the most negative sense—could well be coming to America tomorrow.
Of course, in other respects, America is far ahead of Canada in terms of serious moral issues. Just consider the difference in gun violence between our nations. Or ask yourself who is the world leader in exporting and providing porn, Canada or America?
Yet, when it comes to government overreach or attacks on fundamental liberties or hostility toward the church, Canada's descent has been more frightening.
For 17 years, ABC's wildly popular dating shows, The Bachelor and The Bachelorette, have drawn massive audiences. I've surveyed maybe 20 minutes as women and cool contestants talk seductively about suggestive situations and shacking up.
Audiences were shocked recently when a handsome, athletic young man shared winsomely and unashamedly on The Bachelorette about honoring marriage and celebrating sexual purity. Amongst 30 guys vying for her affection, this man of God literally brought the lady in waiting to a tearful response.
On a past episode, a supposedly Christian woman shared that she had "physical relations with some of the contestants but Jesus still loved me." It's accurate to say He does (plus everyone else on planet Earth) but that does not mean He approves of what Scripture clearly prohibits outside the parameters of marriage.
Have you ever wondered about the passage in the Bible about a government restricting the population so that you cannot buy or sell unless you have a particular mark? Well, China's move toward a cashless society is the answer. This is where the entire world is literally being set up for that kind of government control. Have you ever wondered about the passage in the Bible about a government restricting the population so that you cannot buy or sell unless you have a particular mark? Well, China's move toward a cashless society is the answer. This is where the entire world is literally being set up for that kind of government control.
The Chinese government is pushing ahead on many fronts to restrict what its population can and cannot do. They already restrict the right of assembly. They already restrict religious freedom. They certainly restrict political speech. And any speech that is critical of their government (and the way they run things) is definitely cracked down on.
All you have to do is look at what's happened in Hong Kong over the past just two years and you get a very clear picture of where they're going. But they want to control, and they're doing it right now with social credit scoring, where if you don't score a particular way you're not allowed to travel. That's already in place.
