Evangelist Ray Comfort's "The Atheist Delusion" movie, which claims that it's able to "destroy atheism with one scientific question," is set to premiere at the Ark Encounter, a life-sized Noah's Ark theme park in Kentucky.
"From the start, we were concerned that people wouldn't take seriously a movie that 'destroys atheism with one scientific question.' But it does exactly that by scientifically confirming the existence of God. Having a respected, scientifically based organization like Answers in Genesis being willing to premiere it is such an honor," Comfort said in a statement shared with CP.
While Living Waters Publications, Comfort's ministry, has claimed that thousands have already seen the movie thanks to pre-release paid downloads, Oct. 22 at the Ark is set to be the official release date. more >>

Springs Valley Elementary School in French Lick, Indiana, drew the ire of the Wisconsin-based Freedom From Religion Foundation after it's kindergarten graduation ceremony last May included a prayer offered by a 5 or 6-year-old student.

Pastor Tim Keller is on a mission to make sense of God, and if you ask him, Christianity not only makes sense, it offers so much more than what many realize.
Human beings crave meaning, satisfaction, identity, justice, and hope, Keller argues, and the Christian faith provides abundantly for those yearnings.
Rarely, however, do people examine how they arrive at their beliefs, said the pastor of Manhattan's Redeemer Presbyterian Church in a recent interview with The Christian Post. more >>
Pastor Greg Laurie of Harvest Christian Fellowship church in Riverside, California, believes people will not be given a second chance to choose Heaven after they die, and insists that those that go to Hell send themselves there.
"We need to think very seriously about this, because once we die and enter the afterlife, we can't change our destination. You can decide right now where you will spend eternity. But once you die, there are no more chances," Laurie wrote in a message shared on his Facebook page on Saturday.
The pastor, who often talks about the topics of Heaven and Hell, said that he is not approaching the subject "from an ivory tower of theory," since a number of members of his family have died. more >>
Atheists try not to think about the question: "Why is there something rather than nothing?" Atheism has no rational answer to this fundamental question, and even considering the question has the potential to chip away at the beliefs of an atheist.
In addition, the theory of atheism has no explanation for the development of the human mind, and no logical rationale as to why man chooses to believe in a deity.
For example, why do more and more people accept Christ as Savior? more >>
Atheists continue to be among the most hated groups in the United States, as negative opinions of atheists and the non-religious remain prevalent among Americans mainly due to moral concerns and cultural values, a new research conducted by University of Minnesota sociologists has found.
Asked which "group does not at all agree with my vision of American society," 41.9 percent said "Atheists," although the survey sample contained about 33 percent of respondents who fall into a broad "religious nones" category, according to the study, which looked at perceptions of minority faith and racial groups, using data from a nationally representative survey.
A decade ago, 39.6 percent of respondents identified atheists as the group that "does not at all agree" with their vision of American society. more >>
