Did anyone notice that 'frankincense' production may be threatened this year?  Frankincense is an aromatic resin that is used in the daily offerings to God.  Apparently, God is asking us the question, "Am I still your God?  Do you still love me?  Am I dead a second time to you?"  Not a good sign.

Salvation Army marching toward abortion support?

This is the season of the year when Salvation Army volunteers are on the streets and outside stores ringing their bells to encourage donors to fill their red kettles with money for the poor. The longtime Christian organization provides food, shelter, elderly services, disaster relief, prisoner rehabilitation and many other forms of aid. But it also has adopted a position statement that is a step toward abortion, and pro-life leaders are expressing alarm at what they see developing.

Exclusive: Regulators know where MF Global funds went - Yahoo! News
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Regulators now have a more complete picture of money transfers in the final days of bankrupt brokerage MF Global, but must sort out which transactions were legitimate before more money can be released to customers, a top official told Reuters on Wednesday. Jill Sommers, who is heading the Commodity Futures Trading Commission's review of MF Global, said regulators "are far enough along the trail" that they know where the money went. "Now it's just finding out which ones of those transactions are legitimate and which ones of them are illegitimate," Sommers said. ...

etymology of Australia

Another meaning for the word Australia is "land of the (fallen) star."  This is derived from the word 'austra' meaning 'star,' and the suffix -alia "of the area."  The reason for this is that both the Judeo-Christian Bible and modern geology hint at the fact that the earth used to be one land mass.  Regarding the Bible, this is found in Genesis 10:25, "And unto Eber were born two sons: the name of one was Peleg; for in his days was the earth divided; and his brother's name was Joktan."

The word Peleg has the meaning division.  While one would think that this refers to a migratory division of the peoples of the earth, it does not fit the text, in that many peoples already were upon the earth at this time and had spread out from their location near the mountains of Ararat (Urartu.)  The real meaning of Peleg refers to the breaking up of the 'Gondwana' supercontinent.

Contrary to what evolutionary science tells us regarding this, the impact was not a water-based landing for the asteroid, but rather land-based.  As can be gathered by the numerous impact craters scattered around the planet, the earth was involved in a super meteor shower except that it was asteroids.

If such a thing happened, whether biblical or evolutionary, there would be evidence of such a large asteroid residing somewhere on the planet, whether under the sea or on land.  I believe that this super-asteroid is none other than Mt. Uluru/Ayers Rock located in west-central Australia.  It may be that evidence of its non-terrestrial origin can be found if looked at closely enough.

Afghan Christian Reach Out For Help; Help Denied

Christian Refugees Refused Help; Lives In Danger

By: Marshall Ramsey II, Worthy News US Correspondent

November 16, 2011 (Worthy News) - On November 2, 2011, the following e-mail correspondence was received by Aidan Clay with International Christian Concern:

"I just received a warning call form a person who introduced himself as an [official at the Afghan embassy]... If I don't go to the embassy in two hours to met hm, he will arrest [me] and present me to the embassy through the Indian police... Please pray and be in contact, and if in case something happens, my wife will contact you. He was claiming that I convert people from Islam to Christianity."

The calls continued throughout the day. "They were very angry and saying that they will hit me by knife and kill me."

The person being threatened is named Obaid S. Christ, an Afghan Christian living in New Delhi, India.  He fled his native Afghanistan in 2007 after receiving word that an Islamic court issued an arrest warrant for his conversion to Christianity.  He adopted the pseudonym Obaid S. Christ to be able to hide from his persecutors in Afghanistan.

High Price For Conversion

Threats against Afghan converts to Christianity should not be taken lightly.  Conversion is viewed as a serious crime in Afghanistan, and Christians are frequently being targeted by both the government and extremists.  As reported earlier this year by Worthy News, a video showing the beheading of one Abdul Latif near the Afghan town of Herat was released.  The militants, who claimed to be Muslim, were seen quoting passages from the Hadith (extra-Qu'ranic writings used to help decide whether or not something came from Muhammad) before executing him:  "Mohammad (peace be upon him) says, 'Whoever changes his religion should be executed.'"

For Obaid, the menacing calls were not the first time he felt threatened since arriving in India.  "Our community is a persecuted and rejected community," he said last April.  "We left behind all our belongings in Afghanistan just to save our lives by leaving Afghanistan.  Here in India, we are receiving no legal and physical protection from the UNHCR Office or Indian government.  We are harassed, attacked, insulted, and persecuted by Indian Muslims and Afghan Muslim refugees in this city."

Persecution Ignored

The persecution of Afghan Christian refugees is sometimes ignored by the very agencies that are mandated to protect them.  Aman Ali and his family fled Afghanistan in June 2010 following a television broadcast showing footage of Afghans being baptized.  Though Aman's conversion was already known in his community, the broadcast stirred animosity towards Christians which led to nationwide protests and the arrests of several converts.

Ali immediately applied for refugee status with the United Nations High Commission of Refugees (UNHCR) upon arriving in New Delhi, but was rejected and told that he failed to meet the criteria set forth in Article 6B of the UNHCR Statute which states that in order to receive refugee status, one must have a "well-founded fear of persecution by reason of his race, religion, nationality or political opinion."  It was clear to Aman that the UNHCR did not consider his conversion as a legitimate threat to his life.

One Ratimullah from Mazar-i-Sharif fled at the same time as Aman and for the same reasons.  Like Aman, Ratimullah's application for refugee status was also rejected along with seven other applicants.  "I cannot return to my country because I will be arrested and executed by the Afghan government," Ratimullah wrote in an appeal to the UNHCR. "A definite death is waiting for me in my homeland."

Another deportee, Ali Hussani, said, "They will kill me for being Christian.  There are only Muslims there."

Some foreign aid workers in the country believe that the threats are merely Taliban propaganda as they have heard similar declarations in the past.  Obaid S. Christ however, has a different view.

"The centers' (churches and other Christian meeting places) activities are being observed, Afghan converts are identified, and it is planned to destroy the centers," he said.  "This is serious!"

Hundreds of Afghan Christians, like Obaid, remain on the run from religious-based persecution that targets them at home and abroad.  "In the modern world, where we have NATO, the UN, human rights commissions, and governments which claim they fight for democracy and give protection for those who are persecuted, I cannot find a place in this world where I am protected," Obaid lamented.
