13 Indian Christians jailed
One of the men, who has been in prison for over three months, told International Christian Concern, “My wife and I were both in the jail at the same time, and there [was] much delay in getting the bail. But I saw God was working even [in] that situation. [I was] able to take the scriptures into the jail for the three months I was there. I took Bibles to study and conducted worship for people who are in the jail.”
There have already been 130 reported incidents of persecution in the Uttar Pradesh state of India during the first quarter of this year.
Acts 16:25 says, “But at midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the prisoners were listening to them.”
CDC monitored compliance via cell phones
A report from the news outlet VICE found the Centers for Disease Control bought location data harvested from tens of millions of phones to analyze Americans’ compliance with COVID-19 lockdowns.
The CDC used COVID-19 as a reason to purchase the data more quickly, but the report shows the government agency intended to use the information for other purposes as well.
The CDC created over twenty use cases for the location data which, shockingly, included monitoring visits to churches and places of worship.
