    My city is home to the most cheating spouses in America

    My city is home to the most cheating spouses in America

    Researchers have identified the US cities with the highest rates of marital infidelity, and the three most “unfaithful” cities in America, in order, are Dallas, Fort Worth, and Houston. We in Dallas refer to ourselves as the “Buckle of the Bible Belt.” But as the infidelity report illustrates, we are clearly living in a cultural mission field. No matter where you live in America, so are you.

    England and Wales are no longer majority Christian: Is this the future for America?

    England and Wales are no longer majority Christian: Is this the future for America?

    England and Wales are no longer majority Christian according to newly released census data. The two British nations have fallen from 59 percent who called themselves Christians in 2011 to 46 percent who did so in 2021; the number of respondents saying they had no religion has risen from 25 percent a decade ago to 37 percent now. We are seeing the same pattern in the US: while 90 percent of Americans identified as Christians in 1972, only 64 percent did so in 2020. The damaging impact of this steady retreat from Christian faith and morality is on display every day in our culture.

    The “most severe test” for President Xi since he took power: The latest on China’s anti-lockdown protests

    The “most severe test” for President Xi since he took power: The latest on China’s anti-lockdown protests

    Protesters clashed with riot police last night in the southern Chinese city of Guangzhou, part of a string of demonstrations across the nation against the government’s so-called zero-COVID policy.  The restrictions are causing economic hardship and sparking anger over stringent lockdown policies. The unrest in China illustrates the simple but profound fact that ideas change the world. My purpose today, however, is less to focus on China’s cultural challenges and more to warn that abandoning the biblical worldview is a threat to America’s future as well.

    Mauna Loa, the largest volcano on Earth, is now erupting

    Mauna Loa, the largest volcano on Earth, is now erupting

    Hawaii’s Mauna Loa volcano, the biggest active volcano on our planet, began erupting last Sunday. People on the Big Island had feared this moment for decades since Mauna Loa had been overdue for an eruption after its longest quiet period on record, ever since 1984. Severe storms are threatening parts of the US. And the Christmas season can be especially difficult for many. In such trying times, where is God?

    Did Prince Charles try to force his mother to abdicate the throne?

    Did Prince Charles try to force his mother to abdicate the throne?

    In the TV series “The Crown,” Prince Charles is depicted as encouraging Queen Elizabeth to abdicate the throne to him in 1991. However, the truth is different. Similarly, when we think of why God loves us and sent Jesus to us, the biblical truth is different from what many believe.

    Former grocery store owner has fed thousands on Thanksgiving for 51 years

    Former grocery store owner has fed thousands on Thanksgiving for 51 years

    For more than fifty years, Bob Vogelbaugh has made sure that his Moline, Illinois, community is well fed on Thanksgiving Day. The former grocery store owner started this tradition in 1970 to include some of his customers who were going to be alone on Thanksgiving Day. What began as a small gathering inside his grocery store has grown to fill an entire food court in an area mall. He and his volunteers served more than 3,200 people this year. Bob Vogelbaugh’s wonderful Thanksgiving tradition foreshadows the thanksgiving dinner of all dinners. One day, those who know Christ as their Lord will hear these words: “Blessed are those who are invited to the marriage supper of the Lamb” (Revelation 19:9).

Daily article

I have deleted all of my
other news apps, and, primarily listen to this podcast. It provides a very balanced look at what is going on in the world today, as well as giving a Christian worldview perspective. Thank you daily article.

Good content, need better reader

I feel compelled to share my feedback, because the content here is worth a listen. But with all due respect to the narrator, this is an audio format that relies heavily on the quality of the reader. This narrator has a fine timbre, but no sense of nuance in relaying the meaning of the text. He uses the exact same tone when talking about God’s goodness as he does when talking about a mass shooting. The job of the voice talent to convey the feeling, not just the information, of the text. It can’t all sound like words off a Cracker Barrel coffee mug.

My primary news source

I read other news sources, but this one is my first of the day. It gives me a quick look at the most important news of the day from a mature Christian’s perspective, and then insightfully brings out a spiritual lesson I can get from it. It’s like a news update and Bible devotional rolled into one! What better way to start your day?
