With teen mental health deteriorating over five years, there’s a likely culprit

In a new paper published in Clinical Psychological Science, my colleagues and I found that the increases in depression, suicide attempts and suicide appeared among teens from every background – more privileged and less privileged, across all races and ethnicities and in every region of the country. All told, our analysis found that the generation of teens I call “iGen” – those born after 1995 – is much more likely to experience mental health issues than their millennial predecessors.

The Roy Moore Saga…To Support or Not Support

Finally, based on what we know, perhaps the question to ask is how will these accusations affect Roy Moore’s ability to perform his job as a Senator? And/or have the accusations made him less capable of his job? If your answer is yes, then vote against him. If you answer no, then vote for him. But whatever you decide, be sure you can live with your decision. I know I don’t regret my decision in this past presidential election.

WORST YEAR YET: Global Persecution Of Christians Hits Another All-Time High

Modern Christian persecution has reached another all-time high worldwide, according to new reports and studies. An International Catholic Charity, Aid to the Church in Need, found that Christians comprised 75% of those persecuted for their “Religion” globally over the past 3 years. The Charity found that Christians are not only more persecuted than any other faith group, but they are also experiencing the very worst forms of religious persecution.  The report also ranked the “most extreme” countries, concerning hostility toward Holy Bible believers, and China, Eritrea, Iraq, Nigeria, North Korea, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Sudan, and Syria topped the list. All of these countries appear on the World Watch List of Christian persecution watchdog group, Open Doors. In 25 years of “chronicling and ranking” the political and societal restrictions on religious freedom experienced by Christians worldwide, Open Doors’ researchers identified 2016 as the “WORST YEAR YET.”  According to the new studies, over 200 million Christians experience high, very high, or extreme persecution. Islamism remains the most dominant driver of persecution globally, and is responsible for initiating oppression and hostility toward Christians in 35 out of the 50 countries on the 2017 World Watch List. In Iraq, the exodus of Christians has been […]

BENHAM BROS: Be Bold! Call Out Sin And Turn From It

“Therefore repent and return, so that your sins may be wiped away, in order that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord” (Acts 3:19). (Via WND.com) – This is the simple message of the Gospel: Repent from your sins and be refreshed from the Lord – it’s just that easy. It’s not hateful, bigoted or intolerant in any way. In fact, it’s the most gracious and loving message anyone can hear.  And it’s the same message from God since the fall of man, long before Peter even spoke these words in the first century. The prophet Ezekiel spoke the same thing directly from the heart of God centuries before:  “‘Do I have any pleasure in the death of the wicked,’ declares the Lord God, ‘rather than that he should turn from his ways and live?’” (Ezekiel 18:23)  So, the central message of the Gospel has always been that all people should turn from their sin and enjoy the eternal and abundant life God freely gives us through repentance. This is, and has been, our anchor of hope from generation to generation.  Unfortunately, this message is being distorted and diluted by some spiritual leaders today who seek to make the […]
