(Worthy News) – In another move towards a new era, Israel and Sudan agreed Friday to normalize ties in a U.S.-brokered deal.
U.S. President Donald Trump sealed the agreement in a phone call that included Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Sudanese Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok.
Sudan’s Transitional Council Head Abdel Fattah al-Burhan also participated in the call, U.S. officials said.
The agreement ending decades of hostility of one of Africa’s largest countries towards Israel came as a boost for Trump, who seeks re-election on November 3.

“Man cannot fix man's problems, but God can and He's still out there,” the former Lonestar member who is now in the band The Big & Rich said on Fox Nation's “No Interruption with Tomi Lahren.”
“Earth to God” was unveiled at last month's at Franklin Graham’s D.C. Prayer March.
“Earth needs to send an SOS to God … we need Him to make His presence known because that's the only way to sort this out,” Rich told Lahren.
“There has to be a coming back to God on a large scale,” he said while talking about the division in America constantly portrayed in the media.
Lahren agreed with the musician and stated, “We need faith. We need to vote. We need to come together.”

CP Current Page: Entertainment | Friday, October 23, 2020 | Fox News Soap opera star Melody Thomas Scott of “The Young and the Restless” released a new memoir and in it, she opens up about her decision to turn down a role in a major film because she would've had to go topless.
In the memoir, titled Always Young and Restless: My Life On and Off America’s #1 Daytime Drama, Thomas Scott revealed the role she turned down was for the movie “Animal House.” She went into further detail in a recent interview.
“It was a funny thing. Back then, it was quite common to go on a series of interviews for a part and be told that you received the part, that you won the role without ever reading the script. And it was that situation. So when I finally did get the script, I already got the job. … All my scenes [in the script] are topless. And I just was not interested in that, even though I was very young. I was, I don’t know, 20. [But] it just was not something that I was comfortable with,” Thomas ..

CP Current Page: World | Friday, October 23, 2020 | People walk in front of the United Nations Headquarters in New York July 31, 2008. | The policy wing of the Southern Baptist Convention is condemning the Chinese Communist Party for its religious persecution of children.
In a jointly-issued written statement with Alliance Defending Freedom and the Jubilee Campaign during the current session of the United Nations Human Rights Council, the Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission detailed the ongoing oppression and subjugation of children in China, particularly the regime's efforts to “sinicize” religious belief — forcing adherence to dictates of the CCP.
The CCP closed kindergartens two years ago because they were founded and operated by churches, the ERLC said in a Tuesday explainer of its work. Last year, Chinese authorities stormed a Catholic Mass in Zhengzhou and forced the children leave.
“Police monitored the church for weeks to ensure no children, including infants, attended m..

Few Churches Back to Pre-COVID AttendanceChurches are re-opening, but not everyone is returning, according to LifeWay Research.
The vast majority of U.S. Protestant churches say they are holding in-person services, but churchgoers have yet to attend in the numbers they did before the coronavirus pandemic struck.
According to the latest survey from Nashville-based LifeWay Research, 87% of Protestant pastors in the U.S. say their church met in person in September, while 13% did not hold physical gatherings.
Since the beginning of March, LifeWay Research has been tracking how COVID-19 is affecting churches. While few Protestant churches gathered physically in April, most began meeting in person again by May with more than 7 in 10 pastors saying they did so in July.
“More and more churches across the U.S. have found ways to meet again, but things are not back to normal,” said Scott McConnell, executive director of LifeWay Research. “The impact of regulations, caution and hardships mean..Read more

“I'm a baby boomer and we've heard since the 50s and 60s, 'Jesus is coming. All the signs have been fulfilled. Before I die, I'll see Jesus in the cloud.' Well you're dead now and you ain't seen nothing,” he said of some in his generation.
The former bail bondsman went on to say he believes youths today are “the last of the generation.”
“The disciples went to Jesus and said, 'Listen, you got to tell us when you're coming back. We got to know.' And Jesus said, 'Listen to me, nobody knows.' 'Oh, come on, Lord. You've got to give us a hint or something.' And Jesus said, 'Listen, even the angels ..
