 March 13 - Scientists Now Resort To Calling Christians Crazy - 'New Study' Attempts to establish a link between religious fundamentalism and brain damage
 Article: Miscellaneous

Comment from UTT:
Christians who believe the Bible are about to be attacked by the claim they suffer from brain damage and are mentally ill. The Bible teaches that the persecution of believers will happen in the last days (2 Timothy 3:12). Certainly this article gives us a preview of how and why this will happen.
Scientists from Northwestern University published a study in the journal Neuropsychologia attempting to establish a link between religious fundamentalism and brain impairment. The findings suggest that religious fundamentalists have less cognitive flexibility, in addition, the study states that damage to particular areas of the prefrontal cortex indirectly promotes religious fundamentalism. In other words, science is now attempting to say that those who believe the Bible have brain damage.

 March 12 - Saying You're Going to Hell if You Don't Believe in Jesus Is 'Insanity,' Megachurch Pastor Michael A. Walrond Jr. Says
 Article: Unbiblical Christianity

Comment from UTT:
The following article explains that one megachurch so-called Christian pastor believes that it is absurd to claim that Jesus is the only way to heaven. This defies the very words of Jesus who said: I am the way, the truth and the life. No man cometh to the Father but by Me (John 14:6).
Michael A. Walrond Jr., one of New York City's most influential pastors who leads the more than 10,000-member First Corinthian Baptist Church in Harlem, is coming under fire online for telling his congregants that the belief that Jesus is the only way to Heaven is "insanity." Prior to preaching one of his sermons at First Corinthian just over two weeks ago, Walrond asked the congregation to recite their purpose statement, which he said "shape[s] our identity as a congregation." "We are an ever evolving community of visionaries, dreamers, and doers who have been called by God to live the lives we were created to live; commanded by God to love beyond the limits of our prejudices and commissioned by God to serve," the statement read.

 March 27 - Chip-and-skin: Payments' Matrix moment
 Article: Technology For A Global Monetary System

Comment from UTT:
Proponents of Bible prophecy have been predicting implantable chips in the tissues of humans for the purpose of making financial transactions for years. This article provides an update regarding the possibility of this happening very soon.

Microchip implants could be considered the ultimate form of mobile payment - skipping the smartphone altogether in favor of giving people bionic abilities. And a small segment of the population is already lining up to try it out.

 March 29 - 'Mary Is the One Who Brought Us Close to Jesus Forever,' Says Pope at Chrism Mass
 Article: Roman Catholic Church And The Last Days

Comment from UTT:
According to this article and proclamations made by the Pope, Christians who do not focus on "Mary" the mother of Jesus, have missed the true focus of Christianity. The Bible contradicts this idea and makes Jesus the focus.
Mary, with her 'yes' to welcoming her Son into the world, is the one who brought us close to Jesus forever, Pope Francis underscored during the Chrism Mass in St. Peter's Basilica this Holy Thursday morning.


Encouraging his brother priests to join him in turning to Mary, "Mother of priests," he noted, they can call upon her as "Our Lady of Closeness." "As a true mother, she walks at our side, she shares our struggles and she constantly surrounds us with God's love, in such a way that no one feels left out," the Pope said. "Our Mother is not only close when she sets out "with haste" to serve, which is one means of closeness, but also by her way of expressing herself."

 March 28 - Transhumanism: advances in technology could already put evolution into hyperdrive - but should they?
 Article: Transhumanism

Comment from UTT:

Humanism promotes the idea that humans are evolving in order to become more advanced beings through a natural process that includes chance and time. Transhumanism claims that modern technology will allow human beings to direct their own evolution and accelerate the evolutionary process on the road towards godhood.

Biological evolution takes place over generations. But imagine if it could be expedited beyond the incremental change envisaged by Darwin to a matter of individual experience. Such things are dreamt of by so-called "transhumanists". Transhumanism has come to connote different things to different people, from a belief system to a cultural movement, a field of study to a technological fantasy. You can't get a degree in transhumanism, but you can subscribe to it, invest in it, research its actors, and act on its tenets.
