In Sunday's fifth episode of National Geographic's "The Story of God," actor Morgan Freeman continues his quest to find out why evil exists in the world.
"To understand why evil exists, we have to know where it comes from," Freeman says. "For Christianity, it could be the devil himself, or is evil something that comes from inside us?"
Growing up as a child in Mississippi, Freeman encountered his first experience with evil in the form of racism at a Greyhound bus station where white and black people were segregated and he was forced to enter through a door designated for "colored" people. Freeman explains that as a young boy, he was confused by the ordeal. more >>
Earlier this month in Philadelphia, there was the 17th annual "White Privilege Conference," which a friend describes as a "liberal confab devoted to self-abnegation."
One of the speakers, Paul Kivel, blamed Christianity for everything bad in the world. Kivel is the co-founder of the Oakland Men's Project and founder of "the Challenging Christian Hegemony Project."
So everything bad comes from Christianity? more >>
Texas Governor Greg Abbott recently found himself rebutting a tweet from a self-described atheist who mocked a pro-faith message he had posted earlier on the social media site.
The conservative Republican leader had tweeted on Tuesday an image of Uncle Sam praying in a church, with a message calling upon others to do likewise.
Evangelical author Larry Alex Taunton cleared up rumors that he claimed notorious atheist Christopher Hitchens "accepted God" before he died, in an interview with The Christian Post.
Taunton, the founder of the Fixed Point Foundation and a public debater and columnist, declared in his recently released book, The Faith of Christopher Hitchens, that Hitchens was privately "not certain" about his atheism despite what he led the public to believe. But he never claimed that Hitchens turned to God before he died, as some media outlets misreported.
In the book, Taunton explained how he got to know Hitchens well during two lengthy road trips they took together following Hitchens' diagnosis of esophageal cancer in 2010. Taunton wrote how he and Hitchens had in-depth, heart-to-heart conversations about religion and death. He added that they even studied from the Bible's book of John. more >>
Charles Mackesy, an artist whose work has been collected by the likes of Whoopi Goldberg, Bear Grylls and Sting, says God used art to draw him away from his atheist beliefs.
It began a quarter of a century ago when Makesy was at a Glasteonbury music festival where he first heard the gospel song "O Happy Day." He was so overcome by the song that he, then an atheist, wept and wept.
He then concluded "there must be more to this than meets the eye." more >>
Ken Ham, president and founder of Answers in Genesis, took to social media Monday morning to send a message to secularists who criticize Noah's Ark and blame God for all of the world's problems.
Ham is launching The Ark Encounter, a theme park set to open in Kentucky this summer. The main attraction is the largest timber frame structure in the world, replicating Noah's Ark from the Bible. The structure standing at 510 feet long, in accordance with the dimensions specified in the Bible, is getting a lot of attention not only across the United States but around the world.
Along with international interest has come an onslaught of attacks on The Ark Encounter. Ham took to Twitter Monday morning to address those who are trying to discredit the validity of Noah's Ark and who argue that the Bible's account of the great flood is cruel and unjust. more >>
