Freed pastor kneels, prays with President


Wall Street journal Editorial,

Two years after being unjustly imprisoned in Turkey, the American pastor Andrew Brunson is coming home, thanks in no small part to President Trump. On Friday a Turkish court convicted Mr. Brunson on unsupported terrorism charges, yet sentenced him to time served. This leniency was purportedly for good behavior, but more likely a response to U.S. pressure.

“This is the day our family has been praying for,” Mr. Brunson said. “My entire family thanks the President, the administration, and Congress for their unwavering support.”

Will we have jobs in Heaven?

October 8, 2018 --

By Randy Alcorn,

Genesis 2:15 tells us, “The Lord God took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden to work it and take care of it.” Work wasn’t part of the Curse. The Curse, rather, made work menial, tedious, and frustrating (Genesis 3:17-19). Because work began before sin and the Curse, and because God, who is without sin, is a worker, we should assume human beings will work on the New Earth. We’ll have satisfying and enriching work that we can’t wait to get back to, work that’ll never be drudgery.

Over the last four years, those who rate the pope’s handling of sexual abuse as “excellent” or “good” has dropped from 54% to 31%; 62% now rate his performance as either “fair” or “poor.” Only 13% today believe he deserves an “excellent” rating, as compared to 36% who say he deserves a “poor” one.
