Is this what we Bible believing Christians in the West will have to do in ten to twenty years?
‘Mass protests across Cuba, a nation where demonstrations against the government have been tightly controlled in the past, has seen the arrest of dozens including Christian leaders.
Christian Solidarity Worldwide reports “Protests erupted across the country on 11 July in response to Cuba’s ongoing and severe economic crisis and a record surge in coronavirus cases, before expanding to criticisms of the Cuban Communist Party (CCP)’s decades-long hold on power, crackdown on human rights and pro-democracy movements. and management of the COVID-19 pandemic.
“In response, the government appears to have disconnected the internet in most of the island’s major cities, but reports of violations targeting protesters and religious leaders have continued to emerge.”
There has been an increasing number of arrests of pastors following the weekend demonstrations according to Evangelico Digital, a Latin American news source.
“Several Cuban evangelical denominations have issued official communiqués in recent days expressing their position following the unprecedented protests…
“The Evangelical League of Cuba called on ‘the Cuban authorities to listen to the voice of the people and provide solutions based on justice and peace.’ In addition, they asked the members of their church to “act according to biblical principles” and all Cuban Christians ‘to remain in prayer for our nation.’
“For his part, the president of the Baptist Convention of Eastern Cuba, Josué Rodríguez, from the city of Santiago was more restrained. The Baptist leader called ‘the pastoral, our missionaries and all Baptist parishioners to sanity. Let’s be wise and balanced in this moment of violence that our people suffer. Let’s avoid excessive stays away from home and take care of our words in the different topics of conversation in which we will participate in these days.’
“The Superintendent General of the Assemblies of God in Cuba, Moisés de Prada, published a video on the Facebook page of his name in which he agrees that the Cuban people need to be heard. ‘The despair, the crisis of medicines, food, the lack of expression, clear, transparent dialogue, has led a people to raise their voices and need to be heard.’
“De Prada emphatically demanded; ‘We are calling for the cessation of repression. We are calling for the cessation of hostilities. We call on the authorities and the people to sanity. Violence breeds violence and the results are harmful,’ he added.”
EvangelicoDigital also reports that two pastors who tutor at Carey Seminary in Cuba, Yéremi Blanco Ramírez and Yarian Sierra, were arrested on Sunday. “‘They are imprisoned in a wing of the women’s prison of the city of Matanzas,” said Pastor Jatniel Pérez [Carey’s Cuba Director]. ‘Today the wives of both brothers were able to bring them toothbrush, toothpaste, soap, bedding, underwear and T-shirt. Just that. Those things for seven days [for those] imprisoned under interrogation and brutal imbalance. Without any hygiene.’”
The BBC reports that Cuban President Miguel Díaz-Canel who succeeded the Castro brothers, “slammed protestors as ‘counter-revolutionaries” while his foreign minister alleged the demonstrations had been financed and instigated by the United States…”
“There were reports of internet blackouts across the island. Access to mobile internet was rolled out in December 2018 in Cuba but is controlled by the state-owned telecommunications company Etecsa.
“Internet monitoring site Netblocks said access to WhatsApp, Facebook, Instagram and Telegram had been restricted by Etecsa’s servers. Mobile internet is the main way for Cubans to access independent news and many said the blackouts had increased the sense of ominous unease following the protests.”’https://www.eternitynews.com.au/world/christians-take-part-in-mass-protests-in-cuba-pastors-arrested/
I am always amazed how some men become ‘celebraties’ within Christianity. One such man is Mark Driscoll! Here is Part Two of an interview https://julieroys.com/podcast/inside-the-driscoll-cult-part-ii/ with two men that were a part of Driscoll’s Trinity Church.
The Sodomites are out in force to change society! If you can stomach it here is the link to a Rumble video where the Sodomites sing “We’ll convert your children”. https://rumble.com/vjk4v1-lgbtq-agenda-exposed-listen-to-this-gay-chorus-sing-about-your-children.html?mref=6zof&mc=dgip3&utm_source=newsletter&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Red+Voice+Media&ep=2
Romans 1:27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.
‘Is Google still your default search engine? If so, you are helping an anti-Bible, anti-morality, pro-sodomy, pro-perversion, anti-God company with every search you make. They also intend to censor you and to eliminate your voice if they can. For example, if you search for “Homosexuality is wicked,” the top result (as of when I wrote this article) is an article that laughably claims that sodomy is not condemned by Scripture, and other pro-sodomy articles are in the top page of results. If you search on the search engine DuckDuckGo, the top result is an article entitled “Five Biblical Reasons Homosexuality is Worse than Most Other Sins” and practically every other article on the first page is anti-sodomy, with the anti-sodomy articles being stronger against this perversion than the ones on Google. Do you really think that the top results on Google are unbiased, or is Google putting a heavy thumb on the scale? If you search for “scientific creationism” on DuckDuckGo, the first page includes links to the Institute for Creation Research and Answers in Genesis. Neither website is on the first page in a Google search. Do you think that is by chance? If you search for “Hunter Biden China collusion,” the top result on DuckDuckGo is an article from the leading conservative organization National Review entitled “A Collusion Trail: China and the Bidens.” On Google, National Review does not appear anywhere on page one and this article is at the very bottom of page 2. Chance? Oh, no!
DuckDuckGo is not specifically conservative–it just doesn’t have the leftist bias of Google. DuckDuckGo just puts up what most people actually are searching for when they do Internet searches. While some interaction with wicked companies is unavoidable, breaking your tie with Google here is easy. Open your “preferences” file in the browser(s) you use right now (it may be some dots in the top right corner of your browser, or it may be in a menu) and change the default search engine from Google to DuckDuckGo. Do it on your phone. Do it on your laptop. Do it on everything. Google wants your data to make money, but it doesn’t want your beliefs. It wants to destroy them. Stop giving Google money with your Internet searches, and resist Google’s censorship of God’s truth. It takes about five minutes. Do it now.’https://kentbrandenburg.com/2021/07/02/fight-googles-censorship/
This is what happens when the Creator God is pushed out of a society!
‘Ohio pro-life leaders called for an investigation Wednesday after a second-trimester aborted baby’s body was discovered in a dumpster at a northeastern Ohio abortion facility.
During a press conference, Denise Leipold, executive director of Right to Life of Northeast Ohio, said a pro-life volunteer found the baby’s mangled body in the trash about a month ago at the Northeast Ohio Women’s Center in Cuyahoga Falls.
The volunteer with Citizens for a Pro-Life Society found the baby’s body wrapped in a blood-stained surgical sheet with its left leg, left foot and right hand fully intact, Leipold said. Other parts of the baby’s body were badly mangled and crushed, the results of a brutal dismemberment abortion, according to state pro-life advocates.’https://www.lifenews.com/2021/07/07/abortion-clinic-caught-throwing-body-of-17-week-old-aborted-baby-in-the-trash/
The following link will take you to my podcast reading of Chapter Five of Dr. Howard Guinness’ book titled Sacrifice. Dr. Guinness lived the message of this book in that he trained as a medical doctor but spent his life as a Christian evangelist to students around the world. If you know the Lord as your personal Saviour I trust this reading will encourage you in your walk with the Lord but if you do not know Him that this reading will prod you to turn from your sins to Him. https://anchor.fm/david-bennett48/episodes/A-Reading-of-Chapter-5-of-Dr–Howard-Guinness-book-Sacrifice-e1442d8
And we wonder how society got to where it is?!

This gender confusion issue pushed by the Left is out of control in many Australian states so the Australian Christian Lobby has printed pamphlets for distribution seeking to tell the truth.
However, the Victorian state ‘…Attorney-General Jacklyn Symes described the Australian Christian Lobby’s pamphlets on the recently passed Change or Suppression (Conversion) legislation as “hurtful, harmful and wrong.” However, she didn’t mention that the legislation bans LGBTIQA+ people who want help from getting help [Section 5(1)], and prosecutes parents who want to encourage their gender confused children to wait, rather than rushing into irreversible gender transitioning treatment [Section 64].
These ACL pamphlets seek to bring out truth and raise awareness in the community. And, LGBTIQA+ people should have the freedom to explore other options and seek counselling rather than limiting them to only one option – gender transitioning.
What is concerning about Section 5(1) of this legislation is that even those who consent to get help cannot get it. This harms LGBTIQA+ people by robbing them of their true freedom of choice.
In addition, Section 64 amends the Family Violence Protection Act 2008 to allow authorities to investigate and prosecute parents who help their children understand and be at ease with their own biological sex before deciding on gender transitioning treatments.
With gender theory being taught extensively in all state schools to children as young as primary level, children who return home with confusion over their gender will lose the opportunity to have proper conversation with their parents. Parents will either be forced to affirm their child’s preferred gender, or risk being investigated or prosecuted for “family violence” that is deemed to cause either emotional or psychological harm by “changing or suppressing” their child’s desired gender identity.
Out of love and care for families in the community, children, and the LGBTIQA+ community, the ACL pamphlets intend to help parents be aware of the danger of this legislation and avoid litigation. It is also ACL’s wish to advocate for the true freedom of gender confused children and the LGBTIQA+ community. If they are seeking help and consent to receive it, they deserve help in any form.
How are ACL’s pamphlets “hurtful, harmful and wrong” or “derogatory” and “appalling” when they tell the truth about passed legislation and reveal the hidden risks?
The Attorney-General and the Andrews Government should ask themselves why they are enacting a law that strips away the freedom to help others or seek help, and that prosecutes parents who want to parent with common sense and acknowledge biological facts.’https://www.acl.org.au/blog_jy_truthtellingflyers?utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=enews%20210706&utm_content=enews%20210706+CID_01d4d6fad0e98bc6d2da3b1f3661e247&utm_source=CreateSend&utm_term=Read%20about%20the%20stir%20theyre%20causing
