— Richard Harris, General Counsel for Andrew Wommack Ministries

WOODLAND PARK, COLORADO, UNITED STATES, January 31, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Andrew Wommack Ministries (AWMI) stands with concerned Americans across the country today to express its opposition to the decision by Twitter to block Focus on the Family’s The Daily Citizen due to an alleged rules violation. Twitter blocked the Christian outlet, even after an appeal. Twitter carried out the account block stating its position that the organization had posted “hateful” content.

“Twitter’s decision is blatant censorship,” said Richard Harris, General Counsel for Andrew Wommack Ministries. “Focus on the Family’s statement poses no danger to anyone and does not incite violence or any other improper behavior. It seems, according to Twitter, simply acknowledging the undisputed fact of a person’s biological gender is now ‘hateful’.”

The tweet posted on @FocusCitizen included this sentence discussing President Biden’s new transgender Assistant Secretary for Health at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services: “Dr. Levine is a transgender woman, that is, a man who believes he is a woman.”

“Our concern is that with Focus on the Family’s account being blocked, all Christian conservative organizations could be next,” said Harris. “If stating the facts from a biblical perspective of what constitutes gender gets you banned, then the freedom to speak of all Christian organizations is in jeopardy.”

“Andrew Wommack Ministries is deeply concerned that there is a coordinated effort to silence those who hold Christian convictions,” Harris said. “We ask all Americans to pray and to speak out to let Big Tech and our elected representatives know that this assault on essential freedom is not acceptable. This targeting of free speech, religious liberty and the whole ‘Cancel Culture’ is a rapidly growing phenomenon that has no end in sight. We must act now.”

Truth & Liberty Coalition Reacts to Twitter's Decision to Block Focus on the Family's THE DAILY CITIZEN

Targeting of free speech, religious liberty and the whole ‘Cancel Culture” is a rapidly growing phenomenon.

We at Truth and Liberty believe we are experiencing a coordinated effort to silence those of us who hold Christian convictions.”

— Richard Harris, TLC Executive Director

WOODLAND PARK, COLORADO, UNITED STATES, January 30, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Truth & Liberty Coalition is appalled by the decision by Twitter to censor Focus on the Family’s The Daily Citizen due to an alleged rules violation. Twitter blocked the account stating its position that the organization had posted “hateful” content.

“Twitter’s decision is blatant censorship,” said Richard Harris, Truth and Liberty Coalition’s Executive Director. “Focus on the Family’s statement poses no danger to anyone and does not incite violence or any other improper behavior. It seems, according to Twitter, simply acknowledging the indisputable fact of a person’s biological gender is now ‘hateful’.”

“Our concern is that with Focus on the Family’s account being blocked, all Christian conservative organizations could be next,” said Harris. “If stating the facts from a biblical perspective of what constitutes gender gets you banned, then the freedom to speak of all Christian organizations is in jeopardy.”

“Big Tech titans are the new emperors of the twenty-first century, wielding an inordinate amount of power by silencing individuals and organizations that don’t comport or cave to their political or social point of view,” said Jim Daly, president of Focus on The Family.

In recent weeks, other high-profile, outspoken individuals have been banned from social media, including former President Donald Trump and Mike Lindell, CEO and founder of My Pillow.

Other voices silenced include:

· Curt Schilling — had his insurance dropped by AIG; may not make Hall of Fame today because of statements supporting conservative causes

· Brandon Eich — Mozilla CEO, ousted after it was discovered he’d privately given money in support of California’s anti-gay marriage referendum in the past

· Martina Navratilova — thrown off LGBT advocacy board and loses speaking engagements and documentary after arguing that transgender male athletes shouldn’t be able to compete in women’s sports

· JK Rowling — prevented from getting last book published because of tweets making distinctions between the sexes

· Ariel Pink dropped from record label for attending Trump rally, not to mention all of the people who have been fired from jobs for attending the January 6 rally, regardless of whether they even came near the Capitol

· CrossFit founder Greg Glassman forced to sell company after making remarks critical of the rioting last year

“We at Truth and Liberty believe we are experiencing a coordinated effort to silence those of us who hold Christian convictions,” Harris said. “We ask all Americans to pray and to speak out to let Big Tech and our elected representatives know that this assault on essential freedom is not acceptable. This targeting of free speech, religious liberty and the whole ‘Cancel Culture” is a rapidly growing phenomenon that has no end in sight. We must act now.”

The Death of a Child Predator

Survivor / Author

What happens when a child predator dies? A victim's forthright response after decades of terror.

There can be no keener revelation of a society’s soul than the way in which it treats its children.”

— Nelson Mandela, Former President of South Africa

WASHINGTON D.C., USA, January 29, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — My first question when I received the call was, “When did she pass?” Knowing the date would seal her death—make it real and final. When I heard the answer, the corners of my mouth slowly lifted up. I had waited decades for that call. Wanting her life to be done – and the last piece of my physical and mental suffering to finally be over. Ninety-one years she took to pass. Today, it was finally over. My predator was dead. I looked at my husband and he knew “the day” had finally come. I was free. Free in a way I couldn’t be until she physically died.

The agony of daily sadistic abuse and attempts to end my life from six months to 17 years old drove me as a five-year child to the curb of my house. I hoped for a car to come by fast enough to jump in front of and end my life. I wanted peace and never to be touched again by my birth mother or her cohorts. I looked up into the huge blue sky. In my innocence I wondered, how big was it and who made it? Was there someone bigger than those who were hurting me?

Then, I heard a voice say, “This is not the plan I have for you. Suicide is not the answer.” I knew it was the voice of God though I barely knew who God was. At the age of five, how could I have known the word ‘suicide’ and understood what it meant? I trusted that voice.

Mercifully, no cars came by and I retreated to the garage. Leaning against the door, I was disappointed I had to go back inside. I cried out loud to that invisible voice, “If you keep me alive, I’ll do whatever you call me to do.” I had no idea how long the years would be or how much suffering I would endure. I simply believed that voice; that I had a purpose in life.

When a predator dies, there are residual effects. I have been processing the death of all the ugliness, the shame I spent decades resolving, and the pain of healing through faith, extensive therapy, and trial-by-life. The body has memories that can get triggered by unexpected images in movies or something somebody says. It can be devastating. For a victim, it is the unending paradox of wanting to be genuinely loved as a human being and not wanting anyone to get too close to cause you harm.

In order to survive, I had to mask those thoughts and memories. I wore a never-ending “game face” throughout multiple careers so no one would see my inner pain and shame. I wore that game face through an abusive first marriage and even at church. I wore it to hide the irreconcilable truth that my birth mother was a violent abuser, a monster.

My predator lurked in the shadows of my life. The terror she caused me continued even as she aged. I didn’t pray for her death. I left it to God. I wanted to close that horrific chapter in my life. All of the victims I have worked with share a common desire. They want their predator or predators locked up in jail – or dead.

My experience has enabled me to recognize that “mask” on many of the victims I have rescued. It is their protection, whether I have found them on the street or in a homeless shelter. I have been able to help many young victims “lift the mask” so they can see another way for their life. Finally, they have found someone they can genuinely trust.

For those of you blessed with a safe life, here is the depth of the violence caused by my birth mother, my primary sexual predator. She corralled my birth father, birth brother, and a few extended family members to cause me unspeakable suffering.

My first memory at 3 years old was of her chasing me through the house with a meat cleaver, screaming that she would cut me up if I touched her wallpaper. Years later, she locked me in my room for three months of summer allowing only dinner and bathroom breaks. Horrifying as that was, the worst was that she invited others to brutally physically, sexually and mentally abuse me. The last time she tried to choke me to death, I was 17.

Familial predators are a constant. You can’t escape them. They are your family. Their main focus is to use every opportunity to force their child victim into submission in every possible way. They control everything. They are protected by the fact that they share a bloodline.

My decades of experience working with victims of child abuse has shown that family members or others outside the home who suspect, will rarely speak up for the child. Familial abuse continues across the generations of a bloodline. The ivid memories of a brutally abused victim will take them back to the age they were when those violations occurred.

There is hope. Graham Greene said, “There is always one moment in childhood when the door opens and lets the future in.” My life is committed to making sure that when the door opens, it leads to help, healing, and hope for child victims. One person can end abuse for a child. Be that person. Hurting an innocent child is never okay. If you or a child you know needs help, call 1-800-422-4453. Save a life.

William Jessup University’s School of Business Graduates First MAcc Class

2020 MAcc graduates

2020 MAcc graduates

MAcc graduates are prepared for the CPA exam and professional accounting positions

MAcc professors provide life experiences and have first-hand knowledge of the subject matter.”

— Mary H. (‘20)

ROCKLIN, CA, UNITED STATES, January 28, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — William Jessup University’s School of Business recently graduated its first Master of Accountancy (MAcc) class from the newly launched MAcc program on their main campus in Rocklin, California. This one-year graduate degree program includes relevant courses in taxation, audit, and financial reporting. It also covers data analytics, cloud-based industry systems, finance trends, management decision making, and professional ethics. The MAcc curriculum meets the state’s educational requirements to sit for the Certified Public Accountant (CPA) exam and prepares students for public, private, and government accounting positions.

“The MAcc program has helped me bring new insight to my workplace. It has allowed me to understand more about forecasting, analysis, and even taxation. These are key elements that allow me to better fill my role in my current career,” said Mary H. (‘20). “It has allowed other job opportunities to open up to me that would not have been possible without the MAcc program.”

The Jessup MAcc coursework embeds a top-tier commercial CPA prep course for all four portions of the exam. The curriculum emphasizes professional ethics throughout and is taught primarily by industry practitioners and industry leaders. For example, the adjunct specialist teaching Accounting Information Systems oversees accounting in North America for Oracle Corporation and the auditing course practitioner was a senior audit partner at Deloitte, the largest CPA firm in the world. He also served as the Professional Accounting Fellow in the Office of the Chief Accountant of the US Securities and Exchange Commission.

“MAcc professors provide life experiences and have first-hand knowledge of the subject matter,” said Mary H. “But what stands out to me is the fact that the courses not only consist of the textbook and professor experience, they’re also a CPA prep course.”

In Fall 2021, Jessup’s School of Business will offer the MAcc on the main Rocklin campus and is exploring expanding to the Silicon Valley (San Jose) campus and online. The live online classes would be offered one evening a week and students would be able to complete the program in under two years. “We are thrilled to be exploring additional options/locations for those desiring to earn a relevant graduate degree in accounting and advancing their careers,” said MAcc Director Dr. Manuel Salazar. “I expect we’ll begin enrolling next month for our exciting fall semester.”

International Holocaust Remembrance Day: Holocaust Survivor Eva Schloss Continues to Draw Attention to Nazi Persecution

Religion is something beautiful, it’s personal, and we should let everybody worship whomever they want without danger of being killed or persecuted.”

— Eva Schloss

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, January 27, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — At 91, Eva Schloss, stepsister of Anne Frank, is one of the world’s oldest Holocaust survivors.

A prisoner at the Auschwitz-Birkenau Nazi death camp at age 15, she has earned international renown as a lifelong campaigner against racism, anti-Semitism and other human cruelty and offers a unique perspective on the treatment of marginalized communities.

But like many other Jews who suffered Nazi atrocities, it took Schloss decades to overcome her trauma and start speaking about her nine-month imprisonment in the most notorious Nazi concentration camp, liberated by the Russian Red Army 76 years ago on January 27.

“I never spoke about my experiences until 40 years later—it was too difficult,” Schloss told a packed audience in 2018 at Oxford Union, a debating society whose members are mainly students at Oxford University. “I think I started to speak when I realized the world had not really learned anything—there’s still a lot of discrimination and we really have to change our ways.”

Schloss, who has written three books about her experiences as a Holocaust survivor, was born in 1921 in Vienna. Along with her mother, Elfriede Geiringer, and her father and older brother, she fled Austria when the Nazis invaded the country in 1938. The family took refuge in Belgium and eventually settled in Amsterdam, where they lived down the street from Anne Frank and her family.

The Frank family had left Frankfurt, Germany, in 1933, shortly after the Nazis walked through the city’s streets singing, “When Jewish blood drips from our daggers, then things will get better,” as Schloss put it in her Oxford speech, quoting Anne Frank’s father Otto who realized “this is not a country where I want to bring up a family.”

In May 1940, after her family had been in Amsterdam for just a few months, the Nazis occupied Holland.

By 1942, when Schloss was 13, they began rounding up Jews and deporting them to death camps. In response, members of the Dutch resistance offered their homes to hide Jewish families in an effort to keep them safe. But because the homes were small, most Jewish families had no choice but to split up.

Schloss’s father explained that he would stay in one home with her brother, while she lived elsewhere with her mother. “If you are in two different places,” Schloss recalls him saying, “the chances that two of us will survive is bigger.”

“He mentioned ‘survive,’ and at 13, that was the first time I realized it might be a matter of life and death,” Schloss said.

For the next two years, like her famiily, the Franks—Eva’s schoolmate Anne, and Anne’s sister, mother and father—went into hiding.

Schloss’s family changed homes seven times, partly because it became too dangerous for many Dutch people to continue hiding Jews. Eventually, a Dutch nurse, who turned out to be a double agent, informed the Nazis that Schloss’s father and brother were in her home. The nurse had betrayed some 200 Jewish people in this manner. “After the war, there was a court case against her,” according to Schloss, “and she got only four years.”

The Nazis arrested Schloss on May 11, 1944, her 15th birthday, along with the rest of her family. The Frank family was also arrested around the same time, and both families were packed into cattle trains and sent to Auschwitz-Birkenau in Poland. (Male inmates were imprisoned in the sprawling Auschwitz camp, while women were locked three miles away in Birkenau.)

As Schloss tells it, she and other prisoners were tattooed by Nazi guards who told them, “you are not human beings—you’re cattle who get a number … forget you have a name.” The youngest and most feeble of the inmates were regularly “selected” by Josef Mengele, a Nazi physician whose job it was “to decide who was going to die and who was going to live,” recalls Schloss.

The “selected” were then gassed, often under the guise of being taken to have showers. “Some were even given soap and a towel, and they stood there, but of course no water came but gas,” Schloss said. “Within 15 minutes, they were dead.”

Living conditions at the camp were cramped and terrible. Food consisted of “a little mug of liquid” for breakfast and a chunk of bread for dinner. There was no lunch. “Some people wanted to keep the bread for the morning,” Schloss recalls, “but you had nowhere to keep anything, so the only place was to put your head on it in the night” to keep it from being stolen by other hungry prisoners.

One day, Mengele selected Schloss’s mother for gassing, evidently because she was thin and sickly—she had been giving Schloss her piece of bread. It was only “through a miracle my mother was saved,” said Schloss.

The Nazis kept meticulous records about inmates at Auschwitz, which has since been turned into a museum. The details, which include prisoners’ numbers, physical conditions, statements and the location of their barracks, help relatives of the camp’s victims see for themselves the conditions in which they lived.

And still, said Schloss, “there are people who deny that this happened—when there is so much proof.”

After Auschwitz was liberated, Schloss learned from the Red Cross that her father and brother had perished in the forced march to the Mauthausen death camp in Austria. The Nazis, who fled Auschwitz days before the Red Army’s arrival, had forced Schloss’s father and brother to march with them, along with hundreds of other inmates.

Anne Frank, her sister Margot and her mother also perished. Otto Frank, Anne's father, survived. When he read Anne’s diary, he later wrote, “For me, it was a revelation. There, was revealed a completely different Anne to the child that I had lost. I had no idea of the depths of her thoughts and feelings."

Honoring his daughter’s wish to someday publish a book on her life in the secret annex in Amsterdam, Otto published her diary in 1947. It has since been translated into more than 70 languages. In her introduction to the diary's first American edition, Eleanor Roosevelt described it as "one of the wisest and most moving commentaries on war and its impact on human beings that I have ever read.”

In 1953, a year after Eva married Zvi Schloss, an Israeli scholar of economics she met in London, Otto Frank and Schloss’s mother Elfriede married and Schloss became Anne’s posthumous stepsister.

Last July, Schloss participated in the first-ever digital campaign by Holocaust survivors seeking an end to Holocaust denial posts on Facebook. Survivors from around the world recorded 30-second messages, calling on Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg to acknowledge that Holocaust denial is hate speech and to remove it from the platform.

On the 75th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz last year, Schloss was asked on the BBC show “Good Morning Britain” how she felt about “the rising tide of anti-Semitism” not just in the U.K. but around the world.

“I must say, I am not in the least bothered,” she replied. “We have been persecuted since ever. And it’s not just Jews who are discriminated. It’s the Muslims, it’s the Christians as well—just people who are not the same as you are. So I think the more fuss we make about it, the more attention we draw to it.”

Asked about her message of tolerance, Schloss responded that she “still can’t understand why there is so much discrimination against people, especially for religious reasons.”

“Religion is something beautiful,” she said, "it’s personal, and we should let everybody worship whomever they want without danger of being killed or persecuted.”

Church of Scientology Los Angeles Organizes Blood Drive to Help Children’s Hospital Save Young Lives

Blood donation plays a vital role in the L.A. Children’s Hospital’s ability to serve the community—even more now with the pandemic than in previous years.

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, January 27, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Children’s Hospital Los Angeles is one of the biggest hospitals for children in the nation. Each year:

* Some 14,600 inpatients are admitted
* More than 343,700 outpatients visit
* Some 72,000 seek the help of the Emergency Department

The hospital depends on the community to save young lives.

“Our patients need approximately 2,000 units of blood and blood components each month as part of the life-saving care,” the hospital states on its website.

To provide these units to their patients:

* The hospital needs to collect blood from approximately 800 blood donors per month.

* Nearly 90 percent of the blood transfused at Children's Hospital Los Angeles comes from its donor center.

Learning of a shortage, in part caused by the pandemic, the Church of Scientology of Los Angeles hosted the hospital’s bloodmobile for remote donation collection.

“We put the word out to the local community in East Hollywood,” says Susanna Johansson, Public Relations Director at the Church of Scientology. “So many people took part—our own parishioners and many East Hollywood neighbors—there was terrific community support. By the late afternoon with all volunteer donators showing up like clockwork, socially distanced, we were proud to make the quota set by Children’s Hospital. It’s so important to us to support what they do.”

Rocio Hernandez, blood recruitment coordinator for Children’s Hospital, thanked the team. “The Church of Scientology has been really supportive in raising awareness for blood drives. I am grateful for this partnership and looking forward to continue the collaboration in this new year.”

The Church of Scientology Los Angeles urges anyone who can to organize Childen’s Hospital blood donations. Anyone wishing to do so is welcome to contact the Church for tips on how to make it successful and safe.

The iconic headquarters of the Church of Scientology on Sunset Boulevard is configured to serve Scientologists in their ascent to higher states of spiritual freedom, and as a home for the entire community and a meeting ground of cooperative effort to uplift people of all denominations.

The Church of Scientology Los Angeles was featured in the first episode of Inside Scientology on the Scientology Network. It premiered in March 2018, when Scientology ecclesiastical leader Mr. David Miscavige launched the network that airs on DIRECTV 320 and it is available on-demand there and through Scientology.tv.

Axios Solutions Offers Counseling for Leaders, Adds Blake Rymer

Developing strong, action-oriented individuals and teams through meaningful connections and growing discernment.

Bart Justice, President of Axios Solutions

HUNTSVILLE, AL, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, January 27, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — As anxiety grows about the pandemic, government and economy, record numbers of people are seeking help through mental health professionals. Axios Solutions, a leadership consulting and coaching firm, is helping its clients by retaining a veteran counselor to offer help and hope in the midst of a pandemic and political unrest.

Bart Justice, founder of Axios Solutions, realized the scope of the mental-health problem after he sat in a business meeting with a psychiatrist last November.

“He said, ‘There is a tidal wave of depression and anxiety sweeping this country,’ and then he followed that statement up: ‘My practice is three times heavier now than it was back in March,’” Justice said. “With most of the Christian counselors completely booked, someone needed to do something.”

Justice tapped Blake Rymer, a faith-based missionary-turned-counselor to join the Axios Solutions team to better train, coach and help leaders as they grow in their faith and mission. Rymer is a veteran Christ-centered counselor with over 40 years of pastoral counseling experience.

“Blake has helped thousands of folks in north Alabama and all over the world come to an understanding of how to live from the resources Christ offers them rather than the old ways of doing things — which keep them in the same ruts, frustrations, depressions, and anxieties,” Justice said. “Blake understands how to take someone from where they are (in their traumas, rejections, addictions, and poor coping mechanisms) to a place where they have Christ at the center of their lives and are appropriating His resources to live abundantly and joyfully.”

Axios Solutions’ in-person counseling sessions are available in the north Alabama area. Virtual counseling sessions are offered nationwide.

Break the Fear Cycle: Brain Expert Shares Advice for Building Resilience During Challenging Times

Dr. Timothy R. Jennings

Dr. Timothy R. Jennings

Forced social isolation and other restrictions have led to feelings of fear and an overwhelming sense of loss for many.

CHATTANOOGA, TENNESSEE, UNITED STATES, January 26, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Forced social isolation, shuttered businesses and canceled or scaled-down worship services have contributed to an overwhelming sense of loss and fear among people all over the world. And there’s a scientific reason for these emotions, explains Timothy R. Jennings, M.D., board-certified psychiatrist, master psychopharmacologist and founder of Come and Reason Ministries.

Dr. Jennings is a much sought-after speaker who regularly addresses non-medical professionals on the subjects of Spirituality in Medicine, Depression and its Spiritual and Physical Connections, and Alzheimer’s Dementia. He also speaks to medical professionals on the topics of Psychotherapy in Clinical Practice, Major Depression in the Primary Care Setting, and the Neurobiology of Depression — among many others.

He describes how the measures taken to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 can have physiological and psychological impacts that, like dominoes, will topple our sources of strength and resilience.

“Research shows that social rejection, isolation and loneliness activate the brain’s stress pathways, thereby increasing inflammatory factors, diminishing immune response and increasing vulnerability to viral infections and cancer, and make you less resilient in life,” he says.

In the shadow of government mandates that restrict our interactions with others, what can we do within our four walls to build our resilience and guard our overall wellbeing?

Dr. Jennings suggests we can boost our resilience through physical exercise, eating a healthy diet, getting regular sleep, cognitive training, having a healthy relationship with God and spiritual development — measures that can actually alter the way our brains react to stress.

“Healthy spirituality confers resilience in a multitude of ways,” he says. “It develops your higher cortex, which calms your fear circuits. You have less fear and you’re less anxious if you’ve got a developed prefrontal cortex. And if you have a loving relationship with a God you trust, that’s part of your prefrontal cortex. And if people have more love, they have less fear.”

Another part of our prefrontal cortex is altruism — something those with healthy spirituality are more likely to engage in — and helping others also calms fear circuits.

Our ability to face a crisis and bounce back is, in part, inherited from our parents and even grandparents through our genetic makeup, Dr. Jennings explains. But through a combination of mental, physical and spiritual adaptive measures, we can boost our resilience and improve our ability to overcome life’s challenges.

Dr. Timothy R. Jennings operates a private practice in Chattanooga and has successfully treated thousands of patients. He is a Distinguished Fellow of the American Psychiatric Association and Life-Fellow of the Southern Psychiatric Association.

He is also a prolific author whose books include The God-Shaped Brain: How Changing Your View of God Transforms Your Life; Could It Be This Simple? A Biblical Model for Healing the Mind; The Aging Brain: Proven Steps to Prevent Dementia and Sharpen Your Mind; and The God-Shaped Heart: How Correctly Understanding God’s Love Transforms Us.
