International Committee Cautiously Endorses DNA Editing of Unborn Babies | Christian News Network

Some have expressed concern that the practice could lead to the creation of “designer babies,” that is adjusting the DNA of the child to create desired traits, such as blue eyes, blond hair, and superb strength and intelligence.
Marcy Darnovsky, executive director of the Center for Genetics and Society in Berkeley, California told Science Magazine, “We’re very disappointed with the report. It’s really a pretty dramatic shift from the existing and widespread agreement globally that human germline editing should be prohibited.”

Muslims In Turkey Are Now Worshipping Erdoğan As God, One Turkish Man Refuses To Worship Erdoğan As God And Muslim Mobs Now Want To Destroy Him | Walid Shoebat

The story of this one Turkish Muslim scholar who refuses to worship Erdogan adds much credibility to what we have been saying for years. Sacit Arvasi, a Muslim US-based Turkish theologian whose religious sermons are widely popular, blasted Turks for attributing divine characteristics to President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan. He came out of the closet and confesses that previously he promoted the idea and now he recants it.

New World Order Forming Under Pagan Temple of Ba’al Arch? – Breaking Israel News | Latest News. Biblical Perspective.

A replica of a Roman arch that once stood in front of the pagan Temple of Ba’al was erected for the World Government Summit in Dubai this week, creating a scene that one rabbi claims symbolizes the dangerous fusion of Ishmael and Edom against Israel. The original Roman Victory Arch stood for 1,800 years in Palmyra, Syria, until it was destroyed by ISIS in October 2015. A full-size 28-meter tall replica of the arch was created last year by the Institute for Digital Archeology, a joint project of Oxford and Harvard universities, and has been displayed twice before. The replica was erected for the opening of the World Government Summit that opened on Sunday in Dubai. Based in the United Arab Emirates, the summit is an international organization for global dialogue where leaders in government, business, and technology discuss how governments operate and how policies are made.

Question & Answer: What is the Longest Anyone Could Go without Sin?

Brother Sam, I have an odd question. What do you think the longest is one man could go without any sin?

Well, that is quite a hypothetical. The point is not to be sinless but to sin less, as a way of showing love to God. 

A dear professor once said to me, “Can you go without openly sinning in this moment?”
“Yes,” I replied.

Then, he said, “What about the next moment?”

“Yes”

He finished by saying, “Then by that grace of Jesus, focus continually only on this moment, not the past or future.”

I think you understand his point—we should not focus on being perfect in the future… or how long we can go / have gone without sinning, because (until we see Him) none of us are perfect like Jesus is perfect (1 John 1 – 3).  We need only focus on walking with God each present moment.

And, the Bible says, “IF anyone sins, we have an advocate with the Father—Jesus Christ the Righteous.” (1 John 2:1-4)

So, God looks at the believer and says, “IF you sin,….” I tell people that sinning is a big IF in the eyes of our Father, when he looks at us. In Jesus, you have everything you need not to sin; but if you do sin, well then, Jesus is there for you to turn to. And, His nail-pierced hands both prove he still wants you, and that, He died for that sin too. 

We shouldn’t let fear of sinning keep us from enjoying our union with God; and we shouldn’t let shame and guilt keep us from Him either. Just focus on loving Him who first loves us!
