The editors of The Christian Post recently explained why we, and Evangelicals in general, are split on whether to vote for Trump. Evangelicals shouldn't vote for the Democratic nominee, Hillary Clinton, we argue, but the Trump option is more complicated.

Black Lives Matter Shows Southern Poverty Law Center's Hypocrisy

Ken Blackwell

The Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement has many allies within the Progressive movement. Funded largely by the most liberal elements of the Left, especially those within the George Soros network, like his Center for American Progress, BLM has been a major motivator for the attacks on police officers all over the country.

Ryan Lochte: Don't Lie to Your Mom

Ryan Lochte

Ryan Lochte is in a world of hurt. One expert estimates he will lose between five to ten million dollars in endorsement money. Most people will not earn that much money in their entire lifetime. How did he get into such a mess? He lied to his mother.

When God Calls You to Discomfort

God has a longstanding habit of calling those he loves into difficult situations. He called Abraham to leave his home and wander around in foreign lands among strangers who, as far as he knew, might kill him on sight.

Was July the 'Hottest Month on Record?' Who Cares?

World Climate Change Conference 2015 (COP21)

Mainstream media the world over breathlessly report that scientists say July 2016 was the "hottest" month in the global temperature record stretching back to 1880 (or as CNN wrongly reported, "ever")! And future Julys will only become hotter! Repent, the end is near!

Could Untouchables Uprising Be India's Rosa Parks Moment?

Dalit protest

For more than a month now the swell of the Dalit (sometimes called "untouchables") uprising has grown across India. Riots stir main streets and town centers; protesters clash with police; and a war of words has begun, with India's prime minister, Narendra Modi, locked in everyone's bull's eye.

A Winning Strategy for Donald Trump From the Book of Proverbs

Michael Brown

Dear Mr. Trump, I'd like to offer you some free advice that will almost certainly guarantee your victory in the November elections. In fact, if you put into practice what I'm about to share with you, you could become a fine president as well. It will only take you about 15 minutes a day.

The Sadness of Progressives Who Want Resegregation

Wallace Henley Portrait

Having lived through the Wallace era, and, as a young Birmingham newspaper reporter covering him and his exploitation of the race issue to advance his political interests, it was distressing to read recently of college students announcing they wanted roommates of their race only.

Aleppo Boy Omran Daqneesh: What Are We Doing for These Precious Kids?

aleppo boy

Perhaps you've seen the picture of Omran Daqneesh, the five-year-old little boy pulled from the rubble and placed into an ambulance, following an airstrike in Aleppo, Syria. I stared at the photo for a long time. And I watched the footage – just barely over a minute (before clicking, know that it's graphic) – of the rescue worker placing him in that chair. Rather than crying in fear or from pain, he stared calmly at the cameras, likely disoriented and in shock.

10 Essential Facts About the History of 'Ben-Hur'

Ben-Hur

Before an illustrious line of Ben-Hurs — played by Ramon Novarro in 1925, Charlton Heston in 1959, and now Jack Huston in 2016 — graced the big screen, the character of Judah Ben-Hur was crafted in Lew Wallace's 1880 novel, Ben-Hur: A Tale of the Christ.

Raising Good Kids in a Crazy World

Marina Slayton

Parents Question: It seems to us that the world is getting crazier. From weekly terrorist attacks to a rapid rise in teen suicides to a Presidential candidate who uses profanity on a daily basis…it seems like things are spinning out of control in some ways. How can we help raise up our children to be kind, caring, responsible adults in this crazy era?

My Advice to Ryan Lochte and Myself

Ryan Lochte

The lies I told to make myself look better (or to prevent looking as bad as I deserved) are at their core no different than Lochte's big, ridiculous lie to get out of a fairly minor jam. The only real difference is that Lochte got caught, while I usually got away with it.

'Ben-Hur:' The Incredible Story Behind the Movie

Ben Hur

A remake of Ben-Hur movie is about to hit the movie screens. What's fascinating to me is the story behind the book, which has also inspired two previous movies — the 1925 silent version and the 1959 movie-of-the-year, starring Charlton Heston. That version won 11 Oscars, more than any other movie before it and has only since been tied by Titanic (1997).

Ask Chuck: Refinancing vs. Recasting a Home Mortgage

Chuck Bentley

Dear Chuck, My husband and I own a home and are trying to decide if we should change our mortgage to get in better financial health. I read recently about "recasting" a mortgage, which sounds a lot like a fishing term! Is that something worth considering? We've been looking into refinancing. What is the difference?

Ryan Wolfe

Okay, we get it. People born with disabilities are not an accident. But, if this is true and God knows about it, maybe even God did it. What's up with that? Some people conclude that people born with disabilities are being punished.
