Top Christian Facebook Pages Ran By Troll Farms

Nineteen of Facebook’s top 20 pages for American Christians were managed by Eastern European troll farms in 2019, internal documents show. According to Relevant Magazine, the groups are largely based in Kosovo and Macedonia and attempt to target American Christians with “provocative content.” The groups may have been part of a larger network that collectively worked to reach Americans. The Facebook study was conducted in the lead up to the 2020 U.S. presidential election. Read more about the findings here.

Dog rescued From 30 Foot Cavern

A group of friends who were exploring and looking for caves, came across the black-and-white dog and found him to be in a state of starvation after rappelling down into the pit. They then proceeded to take care in lifting him out. The dog named, Hawkeye, was missing for about two weeks so it was assumed by animal control that he fell into the pit very soon after he ran off. The cavers believe that the dog may have originally been caught by his collar on a branch as he fell, as there appeared to be scratch marks about halfway down the shaft.

October 5th – Revelation 21:7

Revelation 21:7

We all recognize these lyrics. “Jesus loves me, this I know, for the Bible tells me so. Little ones to him belong, they are weak, but He is strong.” As sons and daughters of the world we are weak, sinful, and conquered. But as sons and daughters of God we are strong, righteous, and overcomers. Overcomers who don’t just have faith, they put that faith into action by dying to self and fleshly living. The ones who, through the power of Jesus, live victoriously over the power of the Enemy. For as 1 John 4:4 tells us, “Little children, you are from God and have overcome them, for He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.” And to those who overcome and endure to the end, God promises wonderful rewards. Rewards greater than we could ever imagine, and ones that will make all we go through in this lifetime worthwhile.
