After weeks of complaints from angry neighbors, local police in Fort Worth, Texas, have warned Texas Christian University they will start arresting drunk students at off-campus parties who are "unruly, loud or obnoxious."
The schoo,l which is the largest of 14 colleges and universities associated with the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), received the warning in an email from Fort Worth Police Capt. Donald Hanlon, according to the Star-Telegram.
"We're going to take the approach of arresting any unruly, loud or obnoxious students who are intoxicated," said Hanlon. "The problem is that they're complying [with warnings], but they're making police have to go out and issue these warnings. We don't want them to get to that place in the first place." more >>
Pastor Matt Chandler of The Village Church in Flower Mound, Texas, who is teaching his congregation the meaning and relevance of the Apostles' Creed through a series of sermons, explained how the phrase, "He ascended to Heaven, and sits on the right hand of the Father," in the faith statement affects Christians' lives on Earth.
Jesus predicted His ascension, Chandler told the congregation, referring to John 14:12, which reads: "Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever believes in me will also do the works that I do; and even greater works than these will He do, because I am going to the Father."
As the pastor explained in his previous sermons in the series, one way reading of the creed helps Believers is that it causes them to reject popular narratives of culture. more >>

The father of the 14-year-old boy who was lavished with attention, praise and over $16,000 after his homemade clock was confiscated at an Irving, Texas, public school is now generating headlines of his own.
According to Townhall.com and Fox News, Ahmed's father, Mohamed Elhassan Mohamed, manages the Facebook page called the Arabic-language National Reform Party. He has one personal page which appears to be pro-American and a second, more active page, which has an entirely different tone.
While the Arabic language page features plenty of posts disseminating favorable stories about Ahmed's new found fame from his September arrest at school, it also features at least two posts claiming that 9/11 was a conspiracy and hoax concocted by the U.S. government to launch a war against Islam. more >>
Lakewood Church pastor and New York Times best-selling author Joel Osteen advises Christians to be "respectful" when engaging people of other faiths.
"I think [Christians should] take the high ground and respect where [other people are] coming from. What I've seen in life is most people get their faith or their religious background from their parents," said Osteen to The Christian Post, noting that oftentimes Christians try to prove their faith by debating others.
"I always realize — because I travel to a lot of different countries with different people of different faiths — I realize this is the way they were raised and I think people will know who the Disciples of Christ are by our love for one another. So I think respect and understanding is [the] starting point. more >>
Although the Bible portrays Jesus being tempted by Satan, some Christians doubt whether the devilish figure actually exists. However, one Christian pastor insists that it was indeed "a very real devil that tempted Jesus in the wilderness." In fact, he says, the devil "is still in business" and "goes to church every Sunday."
"It was a very real devil that came into the Garden of Eden to seduce Adam and Eve. It was a very real devil that tempted Jesus in the wilderness. He is still in business. He goes to church every Sunday. And if you don't know how to recognize him and take authority over him he'll destroy your life, your marriage, your children, your church, your hopes, your dreams. That's what I want them to take away," Cornerstone Church Pastor John Hagee said during a recent television discussion about his latest book.
Hagee made the remarks during an interview with James and Betty Robison on their "Life Today" program, which was published online Monday. more >>
