I noticed in Apple’s instruction example for its app “Notes”, uses a quote from the Quran (below) that promotes hate towards Christians. How could Apple allow such an outrageous thing?
This is on a new Mac Pro I just bought.
Example from “Notes”:
congregants will be taught that Jesus is not the Son of God and belief in the Trinity is “excess” (Qur’an 4:171, 19:35), and that Jesus was not crucified (Qur’an 4:157), and that those who believe in the divinity of Christ (that would include Bishop Mamza) are unbelievers (Qur’an 5:17), and that those who (like Bishop Mamza) believe that Jesus is God’s Son are accursed (Qur’an 9:30), and that Christians who do not accept Muhammad and the Qur’an must be fought against and subjugated under Islamic hegemony (Qur’an 9:29).
A record-low 20% of Americans now say the Bible is the literal word of God, down from 24% the last time the question was asked in 2017, and half of what it was at its high points in 1980 and 1984. Meanwhile, a new high of 29% say the Bible is a collection of “fables, legends, history and moral precepts recorded by man.”
In its latest Values and Beliefs survey, Gallup found that belief in God in the U.S. has fallen to 81%, a new low, and that liberals, young people, and Democrats are the “least likely to believe in God.” Back in the 1940s-1960s, “a consistent 98% said they believed in God,” reported Gallup.
“The Bible say that ‘we fight not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against rulers in high places.’ Satan is bigger than Lindsey Graham,” Burns said, drawing audible agreement from the audience. Graham represents South Carolina.
For TikTok users, WitchTok is probably nothing new. TikTok has an algorithm which adapts users content around their interests, and if your interest is witchcraft the WitchTok is the place for you.
Witchcraft has seen as massive resurgence in recent years; largely due to the internet and social media. Modern witches now take to TikTok, or WitchTok, to evangelize the masses and promote their beliefs.
Some use the platform to teach spells, do tarot readings, or potion making. The social media platform is particularly helpful this year as Halloween approaches, and they cannot meet in person. They are taking to WitchTok and other platforms for a socially distanced Halloween. And the fact that Halloween falls on a Full Moon makes it especially poignant for them.
Daniel Dietrich, the worship pastor at South Bend City Church, Indiana, has penned a “hymn” rebuking the 81% of white evangelical Christians who voted for Trump.
The lyrics of the song accuse the evangelicals of “putting kids in cages, ripping mothers from their babies” and “weaponiz[ing] religion.”
“There’s so much work to do to combat white supremacy, homophobia, transphobia, sexism — all the ways in which people are treated as less than the children of God that they are,” Dietrich told Religion News Service.
Despite being praised by many evangelicals from the left the hymn has not been embraced by all: “Deitrich’s words are not elevating or edifying; they are divisive,” Goins-Phillips, of Faithwire, writes. “Our worship and discipleship should be challenging, but it should be challenging in ways that call us back to Scripture, not to our anger at one another.”
Rapper Kanye West continues his crusade to tell how his faith in Jesus has transformed him. West began a year ago to host pop-up services. Last weekend he spoke to over12,000 college students in Tennessee, over 1,000 students came to Christ according to organisers. He told them how he overcame alcoholism:
“Jesus saves,” West testified. “No matter how long you think you’ve been away. No matter how long you’ve been in the dark, the light is right there ready to save. To give you the confidence where they don’t want us to be brave. So you tell the devil today that we’ll no longer be his slave.”
The day before West held a 10 hour prayer rally in Arizona, Awaken 2020.
