Iranian Supreme Court’s favorable ruling to Christians
The ruling is significant because Iranian officials have arrested many Christians on national security charges.
The current case involves nine Christians who received five-year sentences in 2019 on charges of endangering state security. Their crime? Proselytizing and attending house churches. The believers are hopeful the review of their cases may lead to their release.
Psalm 124:6-7 says, “Blessed be the LORD, who has not given us as prey to their teeth. Our soul has escaped as a bird from the snare of the fowlers; The snare is broken, and we have escaped.”
Canada eager to prevent counseling help to homosexuals
Canada’s Senate agreed to fast track a bill to ban so-called conversion therapy, the practice of providing welcome Biblical counsel to homosexuals or people pretending to be the opposite gender who desire to embrace God’s design.
The ban would prohibit people from offering talking therapy or even prayer to help change someone’s sexually perverted lifestyle despite the person’s desire to honor God.
In a big surprise, Conservative members of Parliament supported the bill after vehemently opposing it earlier this year.
