“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]

“For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” [Ephesians 6:12]

[1] Lawsuits and Chaos Paralyze the Hungarian Reformed Church in America

The Hungarian Free Press on 27 June 2020 published an article titled Lawsuits and Chaos Paralyze the Hungarian Reformed Church in America, which reports that the Hungarian Reformed Church in America (HRCA) is in chaos and is “paralyzed” due to several lawsuits between several churches and the HRCA moving slowly through courts in Arizona and California due to delays caused by the Corona Virus crisis.

The article describes problems with several HRCA churches and their ministers, including one minister that has left the denomination and desires to work independently of the Reformed Church in Hungary in Budapest.

[3] Pope Says Judas Is Possibly in Heaven

Speaking at a papal mass on April 8, Pope Francis said, “Something that calls my attention is that Jesus never calls him ‘traitor’: [Jesus] says he will be betrayed, but he doesn’t say to [Judas], ‘traitor.’ He never says, ‘Go away, traitor.’ Never. In fact, he calls him, ‘Friend,’ and he kisses him. … How did Judas end up? I don’t know. Jesus threatens forcefully here; he threatens forcefully: ‘woe to that man by whom the Son of Man is betrayed. It would be better for that man if he had never been born.’ But does that mean that Judas is in Hell? I don’t know.” The pope also said there is a “little Judas that each one of us has within” (“Satan pays badly, warns pope,” Aleteia, Apr. 8, 2020). The pope lightly passes over the words of Jesus that it would be better for Judas if he had never been born (Mt. 26:24). When the apostles chose a replacement for Judas after Christ’s ascension, they prayed, “Thou, Lord, which knowest the hearts of all men, shew whether of these two thou hast chosen, That he may take part of this ministry and apostleship, from which Judas by transgression fell, that he might go to his own place” (Acts 1:24-25). What is Judas’ own place? Jesus answered this in His high priestly prayer, as He said to the Father, “While I was with them in the world, I kept them in thy name: those that thou gavest me I have kept, and none of them is lost, but the SON OF PERDITION; that the scripture might be fulfilled” (John 17:12). “Perdition” is the Greek apoleia, which is also translated “destruction” (Mt. 7:13) and “damnation” (2 Pe.2:3). It is used for eternal judgment in Romans 9:22; Philippians 3:19; Hebrews 10:39; 2 Peter 2:1, 3; 3:7, 16; and Revelation 17:8, 11. The antichrist is also called “the son of perdition” (2 Thessalonians 2:3).

[4] SCOTUS Strikes Down Hospital Privilege Requirement for Abortionists, Condemning Women to Hands of Fly-By-Night Abortionists

In a 5-4 vote, the U.S. Supreme Court struck down a Louisiana law that required abortionists to maintain local hospital privileges.  This ruling in June Medical Services v. Russo has left women vulnerable to abortionists who travel from state to state, dumping women on emergency rooms when things go wrong.

Chief Justice John Roberts flipped to join the leftist majority against the Louisiana safety law similar to one he voted to uphold in the 2016 Whole Women’s Health v. Hellerstedt case.

“Once again the U.S. Supreme Court has chosen to betray the trust of women, leaving them defenseless against what is tantamount to patient abandonment and potentially fatal breaks in their continuity of care by what we call traveling ‘Fly-By-Night’ abortionists,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman, whose organization documents medical emergencies at abortion facilities.  “Abortionists oppose hospital privilege requirements because they know they cannot meet the high standards hospitals require, and because they understand that their botched abortions pose a liabilities that hospitals are hesitant to assume.”

Operation Rescue filed an amicus brief in this case supporting the Louisiana law.Justices Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito, Neil Gorsuch, and Brett Kavanaugh all dissented, and each wrote their own dissenting opinion.

Justice Thomas wrote, “Today a majority of the Court perpetuates its ill-founded abortion jurisprudence by enjoining a perfectly legitimate state law and doing so without jurisdiction.”

Thomas explained that abortionists and abortion facilities, not women who were impaired in their so-called right to take the lives of their unborn babies.

“Their sole claim before this Court is that Louisiana’s law violates the purported substantive due process right of a woman to abort her unborn child. But they concede that this right does not belong to them, and they seek to vindicate no private rights of their own. Under a proper understanding of Article III, these plaintiffs lack standing to invoke our jurisdiction,” Justice Thomas concluded.

“We expect that today’s ruling will only add to abortion dangers for women and may result in an increase of abortions in the U.S.,” said Newman.  “This is a tragedy that we lay at the doorstep of Justice Roberts, who actually knows better, but has decided to put his alliance with leftist activist justices above protecting the public from harm.  His part in this travesty is a disgrace.”
