Palestinian Christians say U.S. Vice President Mike Pence's brand of evangelical Christianity, with its fervent embrace of modern-day Israel as fulfilment of biblical prophecy, lacks their faith's compassion and justice, including for those who have endured half a century of Israeli occupation.
The locations of some of Iran’s military installations in Syria, including some within 30 miles of Israeli territory in the Golan Heights, may be motivated more by Tehran’s desire to provoke an Islamic end-of-the-world cataclysm than for strategic value, contends an expert on Shiite religious dogma.

With the events happening in the Middle East transpiring at an alarming rate, I am placed into a situation I care not to be in. As the editor of Worthy News, I am placed into a position where there is great responsibility given to me by the Lord. Worthy News is viewed by over 100,000 unique visitors a month. I can now understand the great responsibilities that pastors must take behind the pulpit, and the vast responsibility given to them by the Lord. The level of accountability given to them is so much higher. Of all the articles I have written from a faith perspective, I have steered away from that which is controversial. (The Prayer of a righteous man availeth much and The dangers of a lop sided message) The truth is controversial enough. But now I have come to a place where I am between a rock and a hard place. There's passages like Ezekiel 33:6; But if the watchman see the sword come, and blow not the trumpet, and the people be not warned; if the sword come, and take any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at the watchman's hand. The reason for this message is so that I can remove this burden from off my shoulders. Remove the burden that I never sounded the trumpet and thus have blood required at my hands. I am by no means dogmatic about this interpretation, but rather present this article as something for believers to consider. 1 Corinthians 8:2 And if any man think that he knoweth any thing, he knoweth nothing yet as he ought to know. May time be the judge.

Wouldn't life be grand if you didn't have to worry about being robbed? What if you didn't have to worry about losing your money? Or that there would be no more fraud which in turn would cause the things you buy to be cheaper? What about the drug trade, if it could be absolutely regulated with an absence of cash but at the same time be controlled?
