In this post I beg the question, “If the United States is such an overtly racist country, why are so many non-white people wishing to come to this country?” In addition, I share who I believe are the chief shot-callers in this well-planned operation.
It’s been a wonderful week! We successfully launched the newly remodeled website, posted our first Another Chance podcast, as well as a new Hidden Headlines news/commentary podcast. I hope you’ll check them all out.
As you may know, as a Jew (who is convinced that Yeshua (Jesus) is Messiah), I will be honoring His magnificent Creation by enjoying a nice Sabbath (beginning shortly, at sundown). If you’re curious about what we Messianic Jews (as well as Jewish people all over the world) will be reading over the next 24-hours, see this great link. We’re all reading the same passages (but the non-Yeshua Jews will obviously skip the New Covenant reading).
Thank you for all your support!
COLUMBUS, Ga. — An employee at a Georgia Chick-fil-A is giving the glory back to God after he recently gave a homeless man his shoes.
Levi Jones, 18, who works at the Columbus location, told local television station WBRL that he saw the man, named Walter, sitting under a tree in front of the restaurant and felt led by God to talk him.
“I asked him how he was doing, [and] if I can get him any food,” Jones outlined. “And I noticed he didn’t have on any shoes on his feet.”
After bringing the man some food, Jones felt led of God to give Walter his shoes. However, he wondered whether or not the shoes would even fit. Jones said that he believed God sent Walter there for a reason, so he took his own shoes off his feet and gave them to the man. It turned out that they wore the same size.
Jones then walked back into the restaurant without any shoes. His manager gave him a spare pair for the day, but they were four sizes too big. He didn’t complain.
“I love Jesus and as His son, I’m called to live and walk just like Jesus did on the earth,” Jones stated. “Jesus hung around homeless people. He took care of people, loved on people, [and] blessed people wherever He went. And so I just wanna walk as … Jesus Christ walked and live that out every single day of my life.”

I just read a story in Eternity News about the Parliament in Queensland, Australia (the country’s third most populous state) debating an abortion bill that would allow a woman to terminate her healthy foetus, right up to the time of birth, when two doctors have “considered” the woman’s “current and future physical, psychological and social circumstances.”
For some, this could translate into gender selection. One would think in this day of #MeToo non-discrimination would extend to the womb.
The reasoning is odd.
The headline of a recent article in The Age read “The ‘missing girls’ never born in Victoria”. The article was based on research from Melbourne’s La Trobe University which comprised a study of more than one million births in that state. Their conclusion was that some parents could be engaged in the ultimate act of gender bias – aborting unborn female babies simply because they are female. Researchers stated that their studied indicates “systematic discrimination against females starts in the womb.”
In other words, pregnant women would be aborting baby girls. Is the implication that it’s the birth-fathers who are forcing the women to engage in pre-birth sex-selection?
It is normally expected that for every 100 girls born, about 105 boys will be brought into the world. Within some key migrant communities in Australia (such as mothers of Indian or Chinese origin), sons are being born at rates of 122 and 125 for every 100 daughters in later pregnancies. Abortion is suspected as the key to these ratios.
All this said, the Queensland Government refused to include any restrictions, even regarding sex-selection, in their Termination of Pregnancy Bill 2018 which will be voted on soon.
Until a pregnancy reaches 22-weeks, there will be no questions asked as to why a young woman is feeling the need to abort. After 22-weeks, abortion is still permissible for social reasons, which no doubt could include the desire for a certain gender.
Just like the Creator, I’m for life. It begins in the womb at the moment of conception and there should be no discrimination by humankind.
Actress Kristen Bell warns her daughters against some of the wrong messages she believes ‘Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs’ gives out to young children.
The ‘Frozen’ star – who voiced Princess Anna of Arendelle in the Disney movie – reads the fairytale to her two girls, Lincoln, five, and Delta, three, often, but Kristen makes sure to explain to her daughters the problems she has with the story about a jealous queen who gets a stranger to give Snow White a poisoned apple so she falls asleep and can only be woken by a kiss from a prince.
When she’s finished reading, Kristen always drums into them that they should never speak to or take food from a stranger or kiss anyone without asking them whilst they are asleep.
She told Parents magazine: “Don’t you think it’s weird that Snow White didn’t ask the old witch why she needed to eat the apple? Or where she got that apple?” She continued: “Don’t you think that it’s weird that the prince kisses Snow White without her permission? Because you can not kiss someone if they’re sleeping!”
Bell follows in the footsteps of British actress Keira Knightley in airing her views on the impact some of the Disney stories can have on their kids.
The ‘Love Actually’ star has gone as far as banning her daughter from watching Disney princess movies altogether, because of the negative stereotypes toward women.
The 33-year-old actress has three-year-old daughter with her husband and has revealed movies including ‘Cinderella’ and ‘The Little Mermaid’ have been banned in their household because of the way they suggest women are nothing without their Prince Charming’s.
Keira said: “‘Cinderella’, is banned because she waits around for a rich guy to rescue her. Don’t. Rescue yourself, obviously. And this is the one that I’m quite annoyed about because I really like the film, but … ‘Little Mermaid’. I mean, the songs are great, but do not give your voice up for a man. Hello!”
