These days, conservatives and Christians alike seem in constant danger of adapting the worldly victim mentality of the left.

If we truly believe ourselves to be redeemed by the Lord, we ought to always keep in mind that to be persecuted for righteousness or His name’s sake is a reason to rejoice, not a reason to feel sorry for ourselves.

This is not to say it isn’t vitally important to bring attention to cases of discrimination or persecution against conservatives or Christians.

It is the way we respond to persecution that makes all the difference, and one London street preacher who went viral after being unjustly harassed and detained by the Metropolitan police stands as an inspiring example as to how to respond in the face of outrageous persecution.

Will Maule of Faithwire reports for CBN:

Oluwole Ilesanmi, the Nigerian man who was arrested in London for simply preaching the Gospel, has spoken out following his release. “Olu” was simply quoting Scripture and preaching the good news of Jesus to anyone who would listen when, on Feb. 23, he was accosted by two police officers and arrested for “breaching the peace.”

The Metropolitan police told Faithwire that, after it became clear that Olu had done nothing wrong, he was subsequently “de-arrested” and no charges were filed. Wednesday, it was announced that an investigation had been launched into the shocking incident.

“I was the one arrested,” Olu said in a video produced by UK anti-persecution watchdog, Christian Concern.

“The police came on the scene and yanked me away,” he continued. “I was taken out of the vicinity into a very remote place, thinking I would not even be able to get back.”

Despite having no money and being left by the police in an unfamiliar neighborhood, Olu said that “God raised for me people in the streets that could be of assistance.”

After finding his way back to Southgate Tube Station in North London, Olu said he “started preaching again the word of God.”

The video of Olu has gone viral, with many brothers and sisters in Christ sending in support. But Olu’s faith in spite of this disturbing incident is inspiring.

“My appreciation goes to everybody all over the world,” he says.

“I am well, I am OK,” he added. “No evil, as the Word has said, will come near my dwelling. God has been so faithful.”

Praise God! Never lose sight of Who has the victory, today, tomorrow, and throughout eternity. The world will rage against His Word, but nothing and no one can defeat Him!

SCOTUS Sides With Religious Schools And Hospitals In Employment Discrimination Case

Published

on

The Supreme Court, in its second religious freedom decision, decided to side with religious employers, which includes schools, hospitals, and social services organizations, stating they are exempt from certain aspects of the employment discrimination law when that law conflicts with closely held religious beliefs. If you listen closely, you can hear the screams of the angry LGBTQ+ mob ripping through America as it dawns on them they have no right to force their beliefs upon those who disagree with their lifestyle choices. Here’s more from The Daily Wire: The 7-2 decision had the same breakdown as the Supreme Court’s contraception mandate decision; Chief Justice John Roberts sided with the court’s conservatives, as did Justices Elena Kagan and Stephen Breyer, and Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Sonia Sotomayor dissented. The case before the court involved two Catholic schools, St. James Catholic School and Our Lady of Guadalupe Catholic School, that dismissed employees who later sued. Religious institutions typically have a so-called “ministerial exemption” allowing them more leeway in hiring and firing and certain protection from employment discrimination suits, but the case before the Supreme Court ultimately tested whether there was a specific limit to that “ministerial exemption,” particularly where the fired employees were not technically members of the church’s ministry. Employers have the right to decide who they want to hire and not hire, to terminate employment or not. It’s their business. They should be able to do what they want. Especially when it comes to actual religious institutions. This is a hard pill to swallow for the left who seems to think that employers themselves, by starting a business, have no rights, or give those up the moment they create a company. If a business owner doesn’t want someone to work at their business, they have the right to say…

Instead Of Abolishing Police, How About Abolishing Abortion And Planned Parenthood? OPINION

Published

on

Over the last several weeks, we’ve all witnessed our nation being further destroyed and torn apart by individuals who claim to be fighting against racism and police brutality. We’ve watched as these same folks burn businesses to the ground in the name of peace, a message stuffed to the gills with oxymoronic irony that appears to be lost on folks who are trying to justify this behavior on the grounds of the cause we now know as “black lives matter.” That’s a phrase we’ve heard a lot lately. And you know what? It’s true. Black lives really do matter. Black lives are image bearers of God, which means they have intrinsic value and worth. Black lives are no different than lives of any other color or ethnicity. Adam and Eve are our first parents. Our blood is the same shade of red. Our ancestry is the exact same when you trace it back to the beginning. We all suffer from the same fallen nature, the same sinful disposition, that has earned us a place under the wrath of God, with our only hope being Jesus Christ and the work He accomplished through His life, death, and resurrection. Since black lives really do matter, instead of abolishing police departments, we should all be united in a fight against the ultimate destroyer of the black community: Abortion. Yes, instead of tossing out police departments, we ought to be giving Planned Parenthood the boot. More black lives have been taken at abortion clinics than have ever been killed by evil, twisted police officers. And that’s not to make light of police brutality. It’s a real thing. It exists. Perhaps we as conservatives have been so gung-ho in the past about blindly supporting police that we’ve ignored that reality. Well, it’s hard to ignore…
