“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.” [Ezekiel 33:6]

The Moderator-designate for the 2018 General Assembly of the Free Church of Scotland (Continuing) is the Rev. David Blunt, minister of the Free Church Continuing congregation of North Uist & Grimsay.
Born in Essex in 1958 and brought up in Hampshire, Mr. Blunt studied Environmental Science at the University College of Wales, which was followed by research at Dundee University.
Finding the naturalistic explanation for the universe implausible and the evolutionary account of man’s origin inadequate, he then read the Bible for the first time. The result was an awareness of the holiness of God, a sense of personal sin and a longing for forgiveness. Helped by the witness of
Christians he met through the providence of God, by divine grace he came to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ in 1983.
His conversion led to opportunities to serve the Lord, including assisting at a city mission and teaching part-time at a Christian primary school. Sensing a call to the gospel ministry, Mr. Blunt attended the Free Church College for three years as a private student. In 2000 he was inducted by the Free Church Continuing as an Evangelist / Church Planter based in Aberdeen and in 2007 accepted a call to the North Uist & Grimsay congregation in the Western Isles. He has served both as a Presbytery Clerk and Clerk to Assembly Committees.
Editor of the denominational magazine Free Church Witness since 2017, Mr. Blunt is also the author of Presbyterianism, published by the Free Church (Continuing), and of Which Bible Version: Does it Really Matter?, published by the Trinitarian Bible Society.
Married to Sybil, who comes from Point in Lewis, he enjoys reading, walking, and gardening.

“Yet another example of the Government overreaching its locus and interfering in family life”
…says Free Church Continuing Committee In a report to the General Assembly of the Free Church of Scotland (Continuing) meeting in Edinburgh 21 – 24 May 2018 the denomination’s Committee on Public Questions, Religion, & Morals assert that the Scottish Government, in promising to “ensure” that a Member’s Bill to implement a ban on smacking  [spanking children] becomes law (despite earlier assurances to bring forward no legislation on this subject), is overreaching its locus and interfering in family life. The Committee report that sadly, on the basis of responses from MSPs, the legislation appears to have widespread support amongst politicians, despite more than seventy percent of Scots believing an outright ban is not necessary. A copy of all the Reports coming before the General Assembly can be found at:

WASHINGTON, May 21, 2018 /Christian Newswire/ —  The U.S. Department of Justice has informed Operation Rescue in a letter dated May 11, 2018, that abortionist Douglas Karpen has finally been forwarded to the FBI Houston Field Office for “any action deemed necessary” related to crimes that include the murder of living babies after failed abortions.
The case actually began in 2012, when four women who worked at Karpen’s Houston area abortion facilities contacted Operation Rescue with information that he was violating the law. Cheryl Sullenger, Senior Vice President of Operation Rescue, received photos of large babies that one Karpen employee had taken at his abortion facility with her cell phone that workers said had been born alive then killed by slashing or twisting their necks.
On May 15, 2013, Operation Rescue released a report along with the photos that supported allegations that Karpen was murdering babies that survived the abortion process. Other alleged crimes included sexual harassment and/or abuse of employees and patients.
That report and ensuing complaints prompted a grand jury “investigation” that declined to indict Karpen. Operation Rescue later learned that grand jury was tainted by improper communications between then District Attorney Devon Anderson and Karpen’s criminal defense attorney Chip Lewis, who were close family friends. Lewis later donated $25,000 to Anderson’s political campaigns.
Operation Rescue then forwarded the information about Karpen’s alleged crimes to the U.S. House Select Panel on Infant Lives that was tasked in 2015 with investigating evidence that Planned Parenthood was engaging in the illegal trafficking of aborted baby remains for profit.
On December 7, 2016, the House Select Panel referred Karpen to the Department of Justice under former Attorney General Loretta Lynch for investigation and prosecution. In 2017, the House Select Panel renewed its criminal referral of Karpen to the DOJ under Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
Sullenger wrote to Sessions in August 2017, asking for him to open an investigation into Karpen’s alleged crimes, especially the allegations that he murdered babies born alive during abortions.
“The letter I received from the Department of Justice is encouraging. The photos depict wounds inflicted on those babies that could not have been done inside the womb. After having personally attended the Pennsylvania trial of Kermit Gosnell, who was convicted of murdering living babies after failed abortions, I knew we could never give up seeking prosecutions for Karpen’s similar crimes,” said Sullenger. “We are grateful for this new FBI investigation that has renewed our hope that Karpen may finally be brought to justice.”
Operation Rescue is one of the leading pro-life Christian activist organizations in the nation and has become a strong voice for the pro-life movement in America.

Contact: Rev. Steven Andrew, USA Christian Church, 877-537-8734

SAN JOSE, Calif., June 6, 2018 /Christian Newswire/ -- Christians are praying for President Trump to repent for hosting a Muslim Ramadan dinner at the White House today. For "our national security," Rev. Steven Andrew asks Christians to confess President Trump's Muslim Ramadan sin to receive God's forgiveness. Andrew is the author of "Save America" and leads One Million Americans on the LORD's Side.

"President Trump hosting a Ramadan dinner is sin according to the Bible. False god celebrations, such as Israel having a feast with a molten calf, bring judgment to the country. Israel went into captivity," said Andrew. He referenced Exodus 32 and Deuteronomy 8:19.

Andrew doesn't blame President Trump, but spiritual advisors giving advice against the Holy Bible. Andrew is usually one of President Trump's strongest supporters.

"This sin angers God, because the Quran teaches God does not have a Son, which is denying Jesus Christ. How would you feel if someone mocked your son?" he said.

"Jesus died on the cross for our sins and is the only way to the Father. So this is a great sin and for protection must be confessed," he said.

Andrew explained the nation saw God's judgment of political corruption (the swamp), unprotected borders and job losses since Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Barack Obama had Muslim events and other sins.

"President Trump must know serving the Lord only is the secret to draining the swamp, secure borders and peace with North Korea," he said.

Andrew explains how to end judgment in the riveting book, "Save America."
 He shows, disobeying God causes the judgments of:

1.     The swamp: "they that hate you shall reign over you" Leviticus 26:17.
 
2.     Unprotected borders: "the gates of thy land shall be set wide open unto thine enemies" Nahum 3:13.
 
3.     Anti-patriotism: "The stranger that is within thee shall get up above thee very high; and thou shalt come down very low." Deuteronomy 28:43

"Last year President Trump didn't have a Ramadan dinner, and look how the economy recovered and the swamp weakened," he said.

Andrew is leading the nation to reaffirm covenant that the USA serves the Lord with One Million Americans on the Lord's Side.

"I don't think President Trump knows he is sinning, but it is probably a deal to negotiate with the swamp," he said.

Andrew "hopes President Trump repents, because this is adultery to God" (James 4:4).

The following is excerpted from Christian Headlines, Jun. 4, 2018: "The U.S. Supreme Court handed religious liberty advocates a major victory Monday when it sided with a Christian baker who refused to design a wedding cake celebrating a same-sex marriage. In a 7-2 ruling in the Masterpiece Cakeshop v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission case, Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy ruled that the Colorado Civil Rights Commission demonstrated hostility toward religion and violated the First Amendment's guarantee of religious liberty when it ordered the baker, Jack Phillips, to design wedding cakes for same-sex couples. Phillips owns a Colorado bakery, Masterpiece Cakeshop. 'The Civil Rights Commission's treatment of his case has some elements of a clear and impermissible hostility toward the sincere religious beliefs that motivated his objection,' Kennedy wrote. '... The Commission's hostility was inconsistent with the First Amendment's guarantee that our laws be applied in a manner that is neutral toward religion.' Religious liberty groups applauded the ruling. 'Jack serves all customers; he simply declines to express messages or celebrate events that violate his deeply held beliefs,' said Alliance Defending Freedom senior counsel Kristen Waggoner, who defended Phillips before the Supreme Court. 'Creative professionals who serve all people should be free to create art consistent with their convictions without the threat of government punishment.' Waggoner added, 'Tolerance and respect for good-faith differences of opinion are essential in a society like ours. This decision makes clear that the government must respect Jack's beliefs about marriage.' In a conference call with media members, Waggoner disagreed with other legal experts who were calling the ruling 'narrow.' 'This case will affect a number of cases for years to come,' she said."

The following is excerpted from "Report: 'Praying, Singing Hymns, and Reading the Bible' Can Lead to Prison Camp," CNSNews.com, May 30, 2018: "Weeks before President Trump is expected to meet with Kim Jong Un, a State Department report issued Tuesday painted a grim picture of religious freedom abuses at the hands of the Stalinist regime--including 'executions, torture, beatings, and arrests' of people of faith. The report said that some of the up to 120,000 North Koreans being held in prison camps 'under horrific conditions' were incarcerated for religious reasons. It cited North Korean defectors and international non-governmental organizations as reporting that 'any religious activities conducted outside of those that were state-sanctioned, including praying, singing hymns, and reading the Bible, could lead to severe punishment, including imprisonment in political prison camps.' A South Korean NGO had recorded 1,304 cases of religious freedom violations carried out by North Korean authorities during the year in review, including 119 killings and eighty-seven disappearances. Detentions accounted for another 770 of the incidents. ... 'An estimated 80,000 to 120,000 political prisoners, some imprisoned for religious reasons, were believed to be held in the political prison camp system in remote areas under horrific conditions.' It cited a religious freedom advocacy group, Christian Solidarity Worldwide, as saying the regime often applies a policy of 'guilt by association,' targeting not just Christians but detaining their relatives as well, irrespective of their own beliefs. The envisaged Trump-Kim summit in Singapore is focused on the crisis over North Korea's nuclear weapons programs and related security concerns. But rights campaigners are urging the president to put human rights on the agenda too. ... State Department ambassador-at-large for international religious freedom Sam Brownback said, 'The president is right on point on North Korea. He's very engaged on this, as you know. The Secretary [of State Mike Pompeo] is very engaged on this. And I think they're raising all of these issues,' he said. ... Brownback recalled that during his days in the Senate--he was a Republican senator from Kansas from 1996-2011 before serving as governor of Kansas--he raised concerns about North Korea, 'but you couldn't get anybody to act.' 'Well, this president is acting and he's taking this issue on, even though it's threatened us for years, if not decades.'"

The institutional change, which will take place in 2020, is part of Vision 2030, a statement that sets a vision for the college as it seeks to fulfill its mission over the next decade.

Meanwhile, Dordt College, a Christian Reformed Church-affiliated school in Sioux Center, Iowa, also recently announced that it will become Dordt University in May 2019.

In speaking about this move, Richard Mouw, president emeritus of Fuller Theological Seminary and a member of the Dordt College Board of Trustees, said, “In many countries, the word college refers to high school, so some students overlook Dordt as an option for postsecondary education. Potential graduate students search for universities . . . as an engaging, challenging place to learn.”

The shift to become Calvin University in 2020, approved during the board’s spring meeting, will take place in the 100th-anniversary year of Calvin’s becoming a four-year college.

The board’s decision follows unanimous endorsement by the college’s faculty senate in late April, after more than nine months of collaborative strategic work by the Calvin community.

“This direction enables us to live into what has already been true about Calvin, and it will better position us for the innovative work that is necessary for the future,” said Michael Le Roy, president of Calvin College. “We see this move providing a great opportunity to introduce more people to Calvin’s distinctive Christian mission.”

Le Roy says the rationale for Calvin’s becoming a university is strong, including Calvin’s strength, breadth, and depth of academic programs; new opportunities for academic innovation; and increasing influence with students and higher education partners around the globe. The college also has a large international student population for whom the term university is more visible and better understood than college.

“A move to becoming a university with a liberal arts foundation both names what we already do and liberates us to do that work better,” said Kevin den Dulk, political science professor at Calvin College and executive director of the Henry Institute. “I’m especially enthusiastic about using the university structure to expand our global reach, which is already considerable yet has a lot of room to grow.”

In Sioux Center, the similar change “fits Dordt’s mission, highlights the excellence of its academic programs, and emphasizes its global footprint,” said president Erik Hoekstra.

“Dordt University best describes who we are and who we are becoming,” he said.

“Over the years, we have developed academic and cocurricular programs that grow out of our mission to prepare students to serve in the professions they enter and the communities in which they live. Dordt now looks and acts more like a university than a college.”

Dordt College will officially become Dordt University on May 13, 2019, three days after the class of 2019 becomes the final class to graduate from Dordt as a college.
