Jeremy Lin is ready for the Brooklyn Nets to experience a revival.
In the first email written to his digital prayer group in months, the Nets point guard is including prayers for his new team's spiritual transformation.
"Please pray for this upcoming season. Not only that we would play well and far exceed expectations (which let's just be honest, aren't very high right now lol), but that there would be revival on our team," Lin wrote. "I'm hoping my teammates come to Christ, that lives are transformed and that we experience God's power on AND off the court this season." more >>
Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee claimed that numerous "fearmongering," apocalyptic predictions in the media over global warming continue turning out to be false, but insisted that he does not deny climate change.
"Polls consistently show that despite constant media fearmongering over climate change being a bigger danger than ISIS, a nuclear Iran and Alec Baldwin's temper put together, most Americans just aren't that concerned," Huckabee wrote in a Facebook post on Tuesday.
"Maybe it's because if you've been alive long enough, you've seen so many apocalyptic predictions come and go (remember when tuna became an $80-a-can rare delicacy in the 1980s? Me, neither.) And yet the world is still here, there are still fish in the sea, and the $9 million oceanfront mansion Al Gore bought with the money he made off of scary predictions of rising sea levels is still as dry as one of his speeches," he added. more >>
While major Democratic voices such as President Barack Obama and 2016 nominee Hillary Clinton have been celebrating Planned Parenthood's 100th year anniversary, evangelical leaders such as Russell Moore have warned that America still has a long way to go to fight for human dignity.
"For a century, Planned Parenthood has been a force for the culture of death, beginning with its start as a racist, social Darwinist institution," Moore, who is the president of the Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention, told Baptist Press. "It has been exposed even further in recent years as a trafficker of human bodies for financial gain.
"Though the pro-life movement has made some remarkable gains, this landmark for the abortion lobby's biggest institution is a reminder of how far we still have to go for human dignity," he added. more >>
Three months after his firing from his job as senior pastor of the popular NewSpring Church in South Carolina, Perry Noble publicly revealed on Monday the details of his rocky marriage, drinking issues, and other aspects of the double life that led to his exit from the church he founded 16 years ago.
Acting on what he said was the advice of his counselor, Noble shared four "extremely unwise decisions" he made that led to his fall from the pulpit in a lengthy post on Facebook that had been shared nearly 2,000 times as of Wednesday morning.
"I was a hypocrite — I preached, 'you can't do life alone' and then went out and lived the opposite," he said. more >>
Coloradans will vote on an assisted suicide measure this November. Those who vote "Yes" are signing their own death warrants.
In a recent article at National Review Online, George Weigel tells a chilling story about just how far the culture of death has advanced in some parts of the West.
Three elderly parishioners at the Canadian church he attends during the summer were diagnosed with cancer. Now, that's bad enough. But what followed was even worse. The first thing they were asked after being told their diagnosis was, "Do you wish to be euthanized?" more >>
