Weekly News Summary 20 December 2018


The European Union (EU) released a plan in case there is a no-deal, also known as a hard, Brexit (see ‘100 days to Brexit: EU acts to cushion no-deal shock’). The EU and UK Prime Minister Theresa May both seem to feel that if they present a frightening scenario that the UK Parliament will approve a deal that they both agreed to. No matter how Brexit ends, the EU will not forgive the UK for initially voting for it.

The vice president of the European Commission, Frans Timmermans, said that Europe uniting with Africa was part of their destiny (see EU, US, Russia, and China vie for Africa: Which claims it as its destiny?). To a degree, the Bible points to this as it shows that the European King of the North will one day make a lying deal with the North African/Middle Eastern King of the South (Daniel 11:27) and then eventually takeover territories and wealth from the King of the South (Daniel 11:40-43).

Speaking of Europe, the climate conference called COP24 concluded. The official hope is to prevent global warming (see COP24 ends: Will it prevent scorching heat?), but the Bible shows that scorching high heat will happen per Revelation 16:8-9.

Over in the USA, the homosexual-accepting Boy Scouts of America is filing for bankruptcy protection because of lawsuits related to boys who have been sexually-abused (see Boy Scouts of America file for bankruptcy protection related to suits for abuse of boys). The Boy Scouts, originally, at least claimed to try to be ‘morally straight,’ but have abandoned that objective.
