This Week In The News

Current Events

by Norbert Link

We begin with the nearly fatal assassination attempt on Donald Trump and, what appears to be, grave security lapses. We continue with Hungary’s Orban’s meeting with Trump prior to the assassination attempt; the dissatisfaction of many Americans with Joe Biden; the hypocrisy of America’s mass media; and the alleged “catfight” between Jill Biden and Kamala Harris.

We continue with Turkey’s hostility towards Israel and Biden’s criticism of Israel. We also report about a troublesome plan of Republicans to initiate mass deportations affecting 11 million people.

We speak on controversial plans to transfer American long-range missiles to Germany; and point out a deeply troublesome development in Germany pertaining to those who dare to criticize the government.

We conclude with articles about the Neanderthal Man and further archaeological proof for the accuracy of the Bible. Please view in this context our new StandingWatch program, titled, “Germany Crushes Freedom of Speech and of the Press.”

Throughout this section, we have underlined pertinent statements in the quoted articles, for the convenience and quick overview of the reader.

Be Steadfast and Persevere

We know that ALL things are possible through God when we put all our burdens on Him. We also understand that we must have the faith that He will come through for us.  So why then do we at times still struggle with doubt?

“Our doctrines and practices are based upon a literal understanding of the ‘teachings revealed in the entire Bible. We believe that the Scriptures of both the Old and New Testaments are God’s revelation of His Will to man, inspired in thought and word, and infallible in the original writings; that said Scriptures are the supreme and final authority in faith and life, the source of Truth and the foundation of all knowledge.’”
