വെസ്റ്റ് നൈല്‍ പനി ബാധിച്ച്  ആറ് വയസുകാരന്‍ മലപ്പുറം വേങ്ങര സ്വദേശി മുഹമ്മദ് ഷാന്‍ മരിച്ചു. കോഴിക്കോട് മെഡിക്കല്‍ കോളേജില്‍ ഒരാഴ്ചയായി വെസ്റ്റ് നൈല്‍ പനി ബാധിച്ച് ചികിത്സയിലായിരുന്നു ഷാന്‍. കോട്ടക്കലിലെ സ്വകാര്യ ആശുപത്രിയില്‍ നിന്ന് മുഹമ്മദ് ഷാനെ പനി ഗുരുതരമായതിനെ തുടര്‍ന്ന് കോഴിക്കോട് മെഡിക്കല്‍ കോളേജിലേക്ക് മാറ്റുകയായിരുന്നു. തുടര്‍ന്നാണ് മുഹമ്മദ് ഷാനെ ബാധിച്ചത് വെസ്റ്റ് നൈല്‍ പനിയാണെന്ന് സ്ഥിരീകരിച്ചത്.

വെസ്റ്റ് നൈല്‍ പനി ദേശാടന പക്ഷികളില്‍ നിന്ന് കൊതുകുകളിലൂടെ മനുഷ്യരിലേക്ക് പടരുന്ന പനിയാണ്. മലപ്പുറത്ത് വെസ്റ്റ് നൈല്‍ പനി സ്ഥീരീകരിച്ചതിനെ തുടര്‍ന്ന് ആരോഗ്യ വകുപ്പ് കര്‍ശന പരിശോധനകളും സുരക്ഷാ മുന്‍കരുതലുകളും സ്വീകരിച്ചിട്ടുണ്ട്. വെസ്റ്റ് നൈല്‍ പനിയില്‍ ആശങ്ക വേണ്ടെന്നും എന്നാല്‍ ജാഗ്രത വേണമെന്നും ആരോഗ്യ വകുപ്പ് വ്യക്തമാക്കി.

Five Bible Verses to Remember When You’re Overwhelmed by the News

Published

on

Social media can be great; it provides a bridge to people with whom we might otherwise rarely — if ever — connect. As believers, it can also give us access to specific details, so that our prayers can be more attuned to the myriad needs that exist in the world. But if ever there was a double-edged sword, this is it.

There is all kinds of research showing social media use is inextricably linked to increases in depression and anxiety. It’s no wonder: we’re trying to force a round peg into a square hole. As image bearers of God, we are designed to be co-creators through communication, but social media is a poor tool for that. Rather than establishing space to create, social media calls upon our worst instincts: to react, repress, and retreat.

We are unendingly assailed by the churn of social media, constantly bombarded with discouraging, complex, and sometimes even scary information, left with only a small arsenal of often unhelpful options: reacting rather than acting, repressing rather than expressing and processing, and retreating or isolating instead of pressing in and adapting.

Human beings weren’t designed to take in so much information, particularly when there is little immediate action we can take to address it. There’s no doubt in social media’s usefulness, but we have to learn to master it so it doesn’t master us, and that starts with setting boundaries, such as taking time away from it all, limiting who we follow, and remembering we don’t always have to engage, and focusing on our purpose, which is to glorify God in all things, to simply do the next right thing in front of us, and take our burdens to the Lord in prayer.

The 20th century pastor and author A.W. Tozer once wrote, “Sometimes, when we get overwhelmed, we forget how big God is.” What a profound truth, particularly in the social media age.

Below are five Bible passages to keep in mind as you use social media:

PHILIPPIANS 4:6

“Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”

Main takeaway: We don’t have to carry our concerns, worries, and fears in isolation. The Apostle Paul said that in every single circumstance, we can tell God what we are feeling and, as a result, the Lord will protect our hearts and minds from the weight of this world.

ROMANS 8:26

“In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit Himself intercedes for us through wordless groans.”

Main takeaway: More often than not, it seems, the issues before us are too complex and troubling to understand. In this passage, Paul made it clear the Holy Spirit helps us communicate our requests to God. We can rest assured He is advocating for us in our confusion and lack.

COLOSSIANS 3:1-2

“Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.”

Main takeaway: While we should certainly be informed and engaged, we should not despair as if we have no hope. Ultimately, as Paul wrote, our lives are not determined or controlled by forces on this earth. Our security is in Jesus, and that should guide our thinking.

MATTHEW 6:30

“If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will He not much more clothe you — you of little faith?”

Main takeaway: Even if His provision doesn’t look the way we think it should, God can be trusted to meet our greatest needs. If He cares enough about the earth to cover it in brilliant colors that quickly fade, how much more does God care for you, for whom He sent His Son, Jesus, to die?

ROMANS 12:2

“Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is — His good, pleasing, and perfect will.”

Main takeaway: While we certainly ought to engage in the world, Paul warned against becoming so consumed by its trappings that we begin to mirror it. Instead, we should set boundaries and see the temporary circumstances around us through the lens of our renewed minds, which come through sanctification as a result of salvation through Jesus.

The Lord is eager to meet us in every situation and circumstance, including when we’re overwhelmed by the constant flow of information fed to us by our newsfeeds. Take some time today to turn off your phone and focus on our priority: Jesus.

Seven Pastors Jailed on False Forced Conversion Claims

Published

on

India – According to the Union of Catholic Asian News (UCA), seven pastors were arrested during a prayer meeting in Northern India’s Uttar Pradesh on October 10th, for allegedly violating the states anti-conversion law.

Since their arrest, the pastors have been charged with “illegal assembly”, and remain in jail.

“We will move bail applications and are hopeful that they will be out of jail soon,” said one of their lawyers, Ashish Kumar.

Anti-conversion laws are widely abused in India. Radical nationalists falsely accuse Christians of forcefully converting individuals to Christianity to justify harassment and assault. Local police often overlook violence perpetrated against Christians due to false accusations of forced conversion.

Please pray for our suffering brothers and sisters in Uttar Pradesh, and throughout India. Pray that the Lord will strengthen the church as it continues to face an increased amount of violence. Please also pray for those who persecute the church, that they will be transformed by the love of Jesus and be granted true repentance.
