NEW YORK — Conservative Christian leaders who gathered for a closed-door meeting with presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump in New York City Tuesday left with a positive impression but want to see more from the candidate.
Family Research Council President Tony Perkins said Trump was impressive, but needs a running mate who has a good relationship with conservative evangelicals and to embrace a conservative Republican platform.
"I think he came and, as has been described here, with humility, actually sat down and had a conversation," Perkins said at a press conference after the meeting attended by more than 900 conservative Christian leaders. more >>
Prominent conservative Bishop Harry Jackson says he's not ready to endorse any presidential candidate even though he agreed to join Donald Trump's evangelical executive advisory board.
Jackson, who pastors Hope Christian Church in the Maryland suburbs of Washington D.C., and 24 other evangelical pastors and leaders serving on Trump's evangelical advisory board met for a closed-door meeting with the presumptive Republican presidential nominee on Tuesday in New York City to address their concerns before Trump addressed a larger gathering of 900 other influential evangelical leaders.
"My thinking is that I am not in a position that I will endorse anyone but he invited me to be on his executive advisory council for faith and culture," Jackson told The Christian Post Tuesday afternoon. "Ultimately, I am going to put my two cents worth in. I had three categories of questions and I felt like he answered my questions fairly well." more >>
A 19-year-old teen died after being severely beaten for more than 14 hours in two days at the hands of his father and other Word of Life Christian Church members.
The teen, along with his younger brother, was reportedly punished after it was revealed that they had plans to leave the church. The father has pleaded guilty for taking part in the physical assault and will testify against others that were accused.
Nathan Ames, former Word of Life Christian Church member, told People Magazine, "Normal churches are not like this. This is not what a real church is. It's sad that people see this and think that's what church is. I think it's a cult simply because mind control was used, and because the Irwins made claims that they were the only way to heaven. People believed that." more >>

Former Southern Baptist Convention president Ronnie Floyd said faithfulness to the gospel was a priority, and he will not endorse presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump for president, after attending Trump's highly anticipated meeting with over 900 evangelical leaders in New York City Tuesday.
In an attempt to win over the support of skeptical conservative pastors, activists and political leaders, a meeting between Trump and the nation's most influential evangelical leaders was convened by the organizations United in Purpose and My Faith Votes to help the prominent evangelicals get to know Trump better.
In both large-group and small-group settings, Trump answered some of the most pressing questions that social conservatives have in regards to a Trump presidency and promised that he will appoint pro-life Supreme Court justices, protect religious freedom and even end a longstanding ban against church politicking. more >>
Former Southern Baptist Convention president and megachurch pastor Jack Graham says that he is ready to "champion Donald Trump" after attending the meeting between the presumptive Republican nominee and over 900 evangelical pastors and activists in New York City on Tuesday.
In the meeting convened by the organizations United in Purpose and My Faith Votes that was billed as a "conversation" between Trump and many of the nation's evangelical leaders, Trump vowed to appoint pro-life Supreme Court justices, protect religious freedoms and help fix the problems surrounding America's impoverished inner cities.
While some attendees of the event, such as Fox News's Todd Starnes, claimed that the meeting was "basically a campaign rally," Graham told The Christian Post following the meeting that the gathering lived up to its "conversation" billing and that he and others are ready to encourage others to vote for Trump. more >>
