Iranians Continue to Fight Back Against Leaders for Death of Mahsa Amini

Since the death of 22-year-old Mahsa Amini, protests across Iran haven't died down. Now Iranian Christians around the world are joining the movement, denouncing the death of Amini who reportedly died at the hands of Iranian authorities for not wearing a hijab properly.

"We are all together regardless of ethnicity, religion, language or belief, in this fight against the shared pain of injustice, oppression and religious dictatorship, as well as our hope for life, freedom and equality," Hamgaam Council of United Iranian Churches said in a statement.

Thursday marks the 13th day of protests in the country and Iran's president is now warning the people that the protests can't continue. State media outlets in Iran are reporting that 41 people have been killed and more than 1,200 arrested. Some are reporting death toll numbers even higher at 76 including women and children.

Fox Anchor: 'God Wanted Me to Be Bold and Share the Gospel'

"Fox & Friends" co-anchor Ainsley Earhardt has become a familiar face in TV news, but her children's books are also inspiring kids and families to see God's power in their lives.

"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." That popular Scripture, Jeremiah 29:11, is at the heart of Earhardt's new project, "I'm So Glad You Were Born: Celebrating Who You Are," a children's book inspired by a faith-affirming message from her own childhood.

"When I was growing up, my mother, on our birthdays, would say, 'I'm so glad you were born,' and that was her message to us. So, one day, I was on air and I said it and all of the crew and my co-anchors started laughing on 'Fox & Friends,'" Earhardt told "The 700 Club." And I said, 'I know it sounds funny, and I know you've probably never heard that before, but think about it."

The Real Truth About the Marriage of Politics and Faith

As I look back, I realize that God has given me a career path with some rather unique experiences. I have built bridges at the intersection of faith and government my whole life, and I have learned that serving people through a role in government can be just as important as serving them through a role in the church.

To be involved in our communities is also to be involved in the political processes that impact them. Is it not better to prevent tragedy before we must race in and help heal it? The tragedy of corruption and betrayal of the people is happening every day in our modern system, and we do have the power to do something about it!

Many Christians have quite simply forgotten our enormous collective power.
