by: Glenn Sunshine  [click on his name for more stories about CHRISTIANS WHO CHANGED THEIR WORLD]

Coming from the segregated South in an era of intense racism, Dr. Jefferson’s accomplishments as a pioneer for women and blacks in medicine would be cause enough to celebrate her life. Yet today she is most remembered for her tireless work opposing abortion, both as a physician in the Hippocratic tradition and as a Christian.   Click here for her story:

A George Soros Mutiny Against the U. S.

An American Thinker article: “The Oxford Dictionary defines mutiny as “an open rebellion against the proper authorities.”  It is synonymous with “revolt and riot.”  For the last few decades George Soros and his Open Society Institute have organized and financed a seditious movement to destroy our Constitutional Republic and monetary system.  Their mission appears to be to replace it with a One World borderless government under the jurisdiction of the United Nations.

Soros, a native of Hungary, made his multibillion-dollar fortune by manipulating currencies.  Devoid of a moral conscience, he dumped 10 billion sterling, which broke the Bank of England and led to a British financial crisis.  It forced the devaluation of their currency while gaining for himself a billion dollar profit.  Through his trading activities in Malaysia, he brought down that nation’s currency and in Thailand he is viewed as an “economic war criminal.”   He has openly stated that he sees himself as a messianic figure that fancies himself as some kind of god while making his fortune betting on the collapse of national economies and currencies.”  From a-george-soros-led-mutiny

From New American article [link stated ] “I admit that I have always harbored an exaggerated view of self-importance — to put it bluntly, I fancied myself as some kind of god.” So confessed George Soros in his 1987 book The Alchemy of Finance.”

Belong, Believe, Become

Ed Stetzer wrote a post comparing old and new ways of reaching people for Jesus Christ. Link below and summary after that.

http://www.christianitytoday.com/edstetzer/2017/january/church-growth.html

“Simplifying it, the process shift looks like this…

  • Old Process = Believe, Become, Belong
  • New Process = Belong, Believe, Become

Be ready at all times to share the gospel truth, because it is the gospel that changes lives. Let us begin the process by simply showing gospel warmth until that door of conversation opens. In other words, love people until they ask, “Why?””

Interesting! I am praying for 3 million people to be saved and discipled this year and for the Jesus to give me the opportunity to go make one disciple for Him this year. I am reminded of this verse 1 Peter 3:15  sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts a, always being ready to make a defense to everyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you, yet with gentleness and reverence;   aset apart Jesus Christ as Lord and Master in my life!

I am also reminded of my daily morning prayer “O God, may Your glory be revealed in me today, at my expense [His way, not my way; His kingdom, not mine; His will, not mine].”
