This is why religious liberty is so important.

Being a Christian is hazardous for your health in the modern world, and that’s not just physically speaking. Apparently, it can be bad for your career, social standing, and all sorts of other things, thanks to the hatred of the left for all things related to the Lord of Glory.

The latest example of this comes from the tale of a Finnish politician who is now under investigation for a hate crime. What did she do to earn such a charge? Posted a Bible verse on her Facebook account.

This, ladies and gentlemen, is the hatred by the world Jesus warned us about.

Police are investigating former Interior Minister Päivi Räsänen, a Christian Democrat MP, after she shared the Bible verse.

The verse, Romans 1:24-27, accompanied a criticism of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Finland over its participation in the Helsinki LGBT Pride events that took place in June.

The New International Version translation of Romans 1:24-27 reads:

24 Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. 25 They exchanged the truth about God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator—who is forever praised. Amen. 26 Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural sexual relations for unnatural ones. 27 In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed shameful acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their error.

Rasanen’s hubby is a pastor in the Evangelical Lutheran Church, captioned the post saying, “How can the church’s doctrinal foundation, the Bible, be compatible with the lifting up of shame and sin as a subject of pride? #LGBT #HelsinkiPride2019.”

The man is absolutely spot on in what he said. The Bible makes it clear that both homosexuality and exulting in one’s sin are both egregious offenses to a holy, righteous God. Therefore, those engaging in both of those heinous acts of treason against the Creator need to repent of their sins and put their faith and trust in Jesus Christ for salvation.

Listen. We’re all sinners, okay? No one is exempt. A homosexual is no worse a sinner than anyone else, yours truly included. My sins are different, but they’re still sins. Our only hope is Jesus. Period. There’s no other way to heaven. If you continue to reject the Lord, you wind up paying for your crimes in Hell, straight or gay.

Here’s a bit more about the investigation:

“The pre-trial investigations have not yet been completed. Police will provide more details once the investigations have been completed or presented to a prosecutor for consideration of charges,” the spokesperson said.

In August, Räsänen tweeted, “I am not concerned on my part, as I trust this will not move on to the prosecutor. However, I am concerned if quoting the Bible is considered even ‘slightly’ illegal. I hope this won’t lead to self-censorship among Christians.”

Christians all over the world are being persecuted by those in power and authority for sharing the truth of Scripture. If you don’t think it can — and already is — happening here, you’re sorely mistaken.

This is why Christians need to be advocates fighting for religious freedom at all costs. If we don’t have this liberty, the government will oppress the church, no doubt about it. Then again, given the condition of the modern American church, maybe that’s exactly what it needs.

Let’s hope not.

Trump Reportedly Fired Ukraine Ambassador After Learning She Meddled In Biden Investigation

If so, she could be in some trouble…

When the United States ambassador to Ukraine was abruptly fired in recent days, eyebrows were raised. Why would President Trump do such a thing at a time when tensions with the Eastern European nation are slightly heightened, due to a phone call POTUS had with the leader of the country? Oh, that Trump. Always doing something to cover up a scandal! Or so Democrats thought. Apparently, the ambassador was doing some shady stuff and team Trump said, not so fast – please kindly see yourself out of the building. Here are all the details known, thus far… From The Blaze: On Friday’s radio program, award-winning investigative journalist John Solomon joined Glenn Beck to detail how Marie Yovanovitch, the former U.S. ambassador to Ukraine, obstructed investigations into potential corruption and interference by Democratic and Ukrainian officials in the 2016 U.S. election. The Trump administration recalled Yovanovitch from her post in May. The whistleblower complaint at the center of the impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump alleged that Yovanovitch was recalled because of claims made by former Prosecutor General Yuri Lutsenko. Continued: A White House memo of the July 25 phone call referenced in the whistleblower complaint, documents President Trump speaking to Ukrainian President Volodomyr Zelensky about Yovanovitch. “The former ambassador from the United States, the woman, was bad news and the people she was dealing with in the Ukraine were bad news, so I just want to let you know that,” he said. WATCH: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KR4469gbN3o WATCH: To open a very serious hearing, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) delivers a completely made-up account of President Trump’s conversation with the Ukrainian President. Very normal and professional. https://twitter.com/BlazeTV/status/1177218754557751296?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1177218754557751296&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Fwatch-democrat-adam-schiff-makes-up-quotes-from-trumps-ukraine-call Reactions: If the conversation were as damning as Schiff et al would like, he would have simply read directly from it, instead of making up dialogue.

Siblings Upset That Brother Was Shot Dead By Store Clerk While Attempting Armed Robbery (Watch)

This might just be the video of the year…

People deal with grief in different ways. Is there a right and wrong way to grieve? Yes, apparently. There is. For example, if your brother points a gun at a store clerk and demands all the cash in the safe, you can’t be all that mad when he is shot dead. In fact, it should be expected. You’d think, right? Not for these two ignoramuses, though. They think the clerk was in the wrong for defending himself. Yeah, for real. This might just be the video of the year. No hyperbole. It’s that jaw-dropping. It goes to show how ridiculous some people truly are. ENJOY: Dayton, Ohio family outraged their sibling was shot dead by a store clerk while attempting an armed robbery https://twitter.com/Breaking911/status/1183153740972359680?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1183153740972359680&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.weaselzippers.us%2F What’s that, Forrest? You have something to say? Okay then… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vt9q-WChfeM America is quickly going the way of Europe when it comes to nonsensical gun policies. Take this convenience store worker, for example. He was fired for defending his own life! From Fox News: Oregon authorities are seeking a would-be thief who was armed with a hatchet when he tried to rob a convenience store, only to flee when the clerk drew a gun and called 911. However, the clerk’s quick thinking cost him his job, with the president of Plaid Pantry in Oak Grove explaining to local station KOIN-TV that the chain has a zero-tolerance policy for weapons. He said employees are trained to de-escalate robbery situations to avoid injury, according to the station. The Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office on Friday released surveillance video of the incident which took place April 28 at the store, seeking tips in identifying the suspect who fled empty-handed and without the 12-inch hatchet.
