Nigeria—Pastor Murdered by Muslim Militants
Source: Voice of the Martyrs
On May 14, Pastor Faye Pama, Secretary of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) Borno State and Senior Pastor of Rhema Assembly Church, was murdered by Boko Haram militants. The attackers reportedly followed Pastor Pama to his home in Maiduguri after he left a Bible study at his church. The gunmen dragged Pastor Pama out of his house and shot him to death in front of his 17-year-old daughter as she pleaded for his life. Pastor Pama was a husband and father of four children, ages 19, 17, 11 and 6. He served in ministry leadership for more than 26 years and believed that Muslims could be won to Christ only by showing them love, rather than through fighting. The Muslim militant group Boko Haram has reportedly killed more than 4,000 people since 2009.
“The Riddle”: The United Nations and Homosexuality
Each year May 17 marks an unofficial calendar date for the United Nations (UN): the International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia. As part of their effort to promote the acceptance of homosexuality, bisexuality, and transgenderism, the UN Human Rights Office posted a short video on “human rights” to their Women Watch site, which promotes gender equality and empowerment of women, as well as to its YouTube channel. This is Answers in Genesis' response.
I married you, not your parents
As stated on the link: Do you ever feel like you’re living in an episode of Everybody Loves Raymond? You know, one spouse just can’t seem to break away from their parents. Of course, it’s funny on TV, but in real life, it may be causing some not-so-funny effects. Greg’s wife, Erin, joins the show as we talk about how to leave and cleave.
