Conservative Students Fear the Consequences of Their Opinions

Keep praying Team Jesus…….

“I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people—for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness.  This is good, and pleases God our Savior…” I Timothy 2: 1-3 NIV

From Dr. Jim Denison:

Conservative students fear the consequences of their opinions 

Abortion advocates claim that women are victimized by pro-life supporters. Pro-life supporters claim that innocent babies are victimized by abortion. Transgender activists see people with gender dysphoria as victims. Those who view gender as binary and assigned at birth (cf. Genesis 1:27; Matthew 19:4) see those who submit to transgender ideology as victims.

And what about those who are victimized for their religious beliefs by victimization advocates? According to a new report in the UK, eight out of ten people working in the arts or culture say sharing conservative opinions could mean “being professionally ostracized” or bullied. A study on college students in the US likewise reports that two-thirds of conservatives “kept an opinion to themselves in the classroom . . . because they were worried about the potential consequences of expressing it.”

“In the world you will have tribulation”

We will continue this important discussion tomorrow. For today’s, let’s note that paying a price for our convictions is nothing new for Christians. From the apostles who were beaten and murdered for their faith (cf. Acts 5:40; 7:58–60) to Protestant martyrs who were burned at the stake to believers who face persecution at genocide levels today, Christians have long known the truth of Jesus’ warning, “In the world you will have tribulation” (John 16:33).

But courage under persecution strengthens our witness. The greater the price for our faith, the more others see the sincerity of our convictions.

And the greater our suffering for Jesus in this world, the greater our reward in the next (cf. Revelation 6:9–11; 7:14).

Are you paying a price for following Jesus today? If not, why not?

Pray for the soul of America!

I am very upset to read all these horrific rape stats, it makes me sick! Satan is having his way with so very many in America. Former New Mexico Rape Suspect Arrested Again

Woman claims she was nearly a victim of rape after man handcuffed her in ABQ

The world’s sin is that it refuses to believe in me. John 16:9

Here in New Mexico, we, I say we, as we are all responsible for the death of God’s babies, over 5,000 were aborted last year! Abortion/Murder/Rape/Drugs/Booze/Violent Crime/Suicide all horrific problems here in New Mexico. I promise you, the Legislature is bragging all they did in the 2020 session, passed a record budget, all that money will not solve these problems. JESUS is the answer.

Our society is failing, take the blinders off! I also posted below about this evil, dirty man Harvey Weinstein. The very sick, sick story of Jeffrey Epstein who had a ranch near New Mexico! SICK! SICK! EVIL! EVIL! Epstein Case

America needs missionaries! No high school pep rally is going to help solve this problem! Only JESUS!Hearts need to be given to JESUS!

God sure has a lot of patience with us!

Harvey Weinstein’s conviction yesterday points to the epidemic of sexual abuse in this country. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more than one in three women and nearly one in four men have experienced sexual violence involving physical contact; nearly one in five women have experienced completed or attempted rape.

Dr. Jim Denison:

The Bible clearly states that God sides with victims of violence (Psalm 11:5), poverty (Proverbs 17:5), oppression (Psalm 103:6), and racism (Acts 10:34–35). Jesus repeatedly sided with the marginalized (cf. John 4) and victimized (cf. Matthew 8:28–34; Luke 10:25–37).

But as the victimization narrative collides with biblical morality, what will society do?

A person is sexually assaulted every 73 seconds in the U.S. and New Mexico has the No. 7 most rapes per capita in America. The state has 64.6 rapes per 100,000 residents, compared to the national rate of 42.6.

The digital revolution – including dating apps and smartphones — has changed our world for the better but these tools also expose people to new risks, including things like catfishing, scams and, sadly, rape and sexual assault.

SocialCatfish today released a study on States With The Most and Least Rapes in America using FBI Uniform Crime Reporting data from 2019 to rates of rapes and sexual assault in every state and the District of Columbia.

The 10 states with the highest rate of rapes include: Alaska, Michigan, Nevada, Arkansas, Colorado, South Dakota, New Mexico, District of Columbia, Nebraska and Oklahoma.

The 10 states with the lowest rate of rapes include: New Jersey, Mississippi, Connecticut, Georgia, North Carolina, Iowa, Maryland, Maine, New York and Virginia.

Here are additional key national findings:                                               

·         The total number of rapes per cities with 1 million people and over was down 5.3%.

·         Cities with a population of 500k to 999,999 had a decline of 13.6%.

·         Cities with under 10k people experience an increase in reported rapes (1.0%)

·         The most significant decline was in the West, where the drop decreased by 9.9%, followed by a decrease in the Midwest (9.3%), then the South (6.6%). The Northeast only experienced a decline of 0.3%.2018 to 2019
