Hundreds of Muslim-Americans have come together to raise close to $200,000 for the families of the San Bernardino shooting victims, explaining that they want to respond "to evil with good."
"We wish to respond to evil with good, as our faith instructs us, and send a powerful message of compassion through action. Our [Islamic] prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, said: 'Have mercy to those on Earth, and the One in the Heavens (God) will have mercy upon you.' And the Quran teaches to 'Repel evil by that which is better' (41:34)," reads the petition on the Launch Good website by Muslims United for San Bernardino.
As of Friday morning, the group has raised over $190,000 to the cause, which will help the families of the 14 dead and 17 wounded victims in the Southern California terror attack at a Christmas party earlier in December. more >>
Outside of the gospel and contemporary Christian music categories, secular Christian recording artists who glorified God this year are dominating the list of Grammy Award nominations for one of the music industry's highest honors.
The 2016 Grammy nominations were announced Monday and rapper Kendrick Lamar led the pack of nominees in 11 categories, including "Album of the Year" and "Song of the Year." While the 28-year-old rapper may use profanity in his hard hitting rhymes, he also revealed that he believes in the rapture described in the Bible.
"We're in the last days, man — I truly in my heart believe that. It's written," Lamar revealed to Billboard earlier this year. "I could go on with biblical situations and things my grandma told me." more >>
Saddleback Church Pastor Rick Warren has shared a "hard message" with followers, telling them that many Christians do not love the church.
"Too many Christians use the church, but don't love it. This is a hard message for many of us to hear," Warren said Wednesday on his Facebook page.
"We've been deeply hurt by members of the church, we've been disappointed, we can be discouraged. But the Church is the bride of Christ. It's the hope of the world, the vessel through which God works out his plan. We have to learn to love the church," he continued. more >>
Khloe Kardashian is defending Ayesha Curry after the wife of NBA champion Steph Curry spoke out against the trend of barely there clothing.
Kardashian, the 31-year-old "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" star, has appeared scantily clad for magazine photo shoots but still chose to support Ayesha's decision to publicly advocate for modest clothing.
Pastor Greg Laurie and his wife, Cathe, visited the set of NBC's "The Voice" Tuesday night, ahead of the much anticipated selection of its final four contestants.
In a Twitter message complete with a winking Emoji, the Harvest Christian Fellowship senior pastor wrote: "I'm a judge on The Voice tonight!"
Well, not quite a judge, but Laurie did sit in one of the judge's seats and smile for cameras, looking rather official, which counts for something. It's no wonder that Laurie would gravitate to a show like "The Voice." The clergyman is no stranger to good music and follows performers on the Grand Ole Opry — retweeting his support for the Opry debut of Christian singer-songwriter Chris Tomlin just last weekend. more >>
