Pornography Rewiring Relationships, South Africa's Future, Middle East in Prophecy--The Real Truth™: Media Lead Sheet/February 2014 Issue

WADSWORTH, Ohio, Feb. 13, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Real Truth™, a 10-issue-per-year publication distributed free of charge around the world, has published its February 2014 issue.

COVER (SOCIETY & LIFESTYLES):
"Pornography's Devastating Impact—Rewired Relationships" (p. 7)
With total revenue of the pornography industry worldwide reaching $97 billion and climbing, over 4.2 million websites, and 72 million visitors to such sites each month, pornography is clearly making its mark on mainstream culture and creating a more sexually aggressive society of individuals open to a new interpretation of what sex should be. Although it was once seen as taboo, as pornography becomes more pervasive and entrenched, many are asking: "Is it really all that bad?"

AFRICA:
"A Bright Future for South Africa—But How?" (p. 4)
In a speech given by Nelson Mandela, he optimistically stated, "We live with the hope that as she battles to remake herself, South Africa will be like a microcosm of the new world that is striving to be born." With a 25 percent unemployment rate, 31.3 percent of the population below the international poverty line, 17 percent of adults infected with HIV, and the troublesome title of the world's "rape capital," how can this nation's hope become reality? This article reveals the answer.

RELIGION:
"Vatican Increases Focus on the Holy Land" (p. 15)
More than ever, the Catholic church is taking an intense interest in the Middle East—particularly the Holy Land, with Pope Francis meeting separately with Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Such a direct interest in Mideast politics is new for the church, which has generally practiced a policy of noninvolvement.

HEALTH ISSUES:
"Nine Ways to Eat Healthfully in an Economic Downturn" (p. 21)
For many around the world, the global economic crisis has produced bitter, grinding hardship. The meltdown of late 2008 and 2009, starting with the mortgage industry, was just the beginning of a downward trend that left millions without a job or income, and in some cases, with illnesses blamed on added stress. Has the current state of the world economy squeezed your personal economy and made it challenging to eat healthfully? Even in the face of financial difficulties, you can trade convenient, empty nutrition for a diet that will promote health without breaking the bank.

RELIGION:
"Why Should You Read the Old Testament?" (Part 2) (p. 12)
Part 1 of this series covered vital foundation regarding the relevance of the Old Testament for true Christians. It showed that instead of Jesus casting aside the Old Testament, He constantly quoted from it. In addition, the apostle Paul and other disciples used the Old Testament as the basis for their preaching. Part 2 takes an in-depth look at the reason and asks the question: was Jesus Christ's gospel a radical new teaching or can it be found throughout the entire Bible?

PERSONAL FROM EDITOR-IN-CHIEF DAVID C. PACK:
"The Mideast in Prophecy—Today's Unrest!" (Part 1) (p. 1)
The Middle East lies in constant turmoil. Disagreement, confusion and violence have defined this region for millennia, making the geographic area a bubbling caldron of unrest, contention, terrorism and failed attempts at peace. Humanly devised solutions never work there. Yet few understand the historical roots of the area where nations, cultures, religions, history and politics collide with prophecy—and why peace in the Middle East has remained elusive for so long.

The threat of terrorist attacks on United States soil continues to grow, top officials from the House and Senate intelligence committees found. Most worrisome is the shifting trend from large-scale attacks to smaller, harder-to-prevent events.
