Pastor Rick Warren of Saddleback Church in California is urging Christians in the area to visit on May 19 for a special "once in a lifetime" event that will showcase biblical artifacts from The Museum of the Bible.
"When the museum opens in Washington D.C. in 2017, it will be among the largest most technologically advanced in the world. The Museum of the Bible team and I will be hosting this one night only event at Saddleback, to share sneak peeks of some of the incredible artifacts they have assembled and provide an insider's presentation on the museum before it opens," Warren wrote in a Facebook message on Tuesday.
Construction on the Museum in question, spearheaded by Hobby Lobby President Steve Green, began back in February 2015, and is set to open in 2017. more >>
Forty to 50 percent of marriages in the U.S. end in divorce, according to research by the American Psychological Association. To help married couples avoid becoming a divorce statistic, Harvest Christian Fellowship church Pastor Greg Laurie is offering up some sage advice.
In Sunday's sermon titled How to Divorce-Proof Your Marriage, part of his sermon series Home Sweet Home, Laurie shared biblical principles and life experiences based on his 42-year marriage to wife, Cathe, in a straight-talking conversation on marriage.
"After we say, 'I do,' there's a lot more to be done, and if you think you're done, you're finished," Laurie told Harvest congregants. The pastor likened marriages to gardens, saying that as a garden that is neglected becomes overgrown with weeds, so too neglected marriages suffer a similar fate. " … When we see marriages start to unravel, it isn't usually overnight, it's over a period of time when there is neglect … if you neglect your marriage, it will slowly but surely die." more >>

And the fear of offending Muslims, he says in an interview with Taki's Magazine, is a by-product of the culture of liberalism and political correctness being propagated by Western countries.
Asked during the interview if he thought political correctness was "killing our natural instincts and making us vulnerable" in light of the terrorist attack he experienced, Hughes quickly agreed. more >>

So I'm just thankful for this opportunity to play the game that I love and share that with the world."
