Iconic Christian singer and actor Pat Boone says that "everybody should go read first chapter in the book of Romans" when considering Bruce Jenner's recent transition into Caitlyn Jenner.
Bruce Jenner, a former Olympic gold medalist, came out as a transgender woman Caitlyn Jenner earlier this month. She also appeared in Vanity Fair magazine where she talked openly about her transition.
Boone, who has sold nearly 50 million records since his career began in the 1950s, shared his thoughts on Jenner while speaking to The Christian Post on Tuesday. more >>
A Louisiana school district is speaking out in defense of teachers who use the Bible "to present alternative viewpoints" when teaching on evolution, despite claims from secular scientists that teaching Creationism is "unconstitutional and scientifically-misleading."
Josh Rosenau, spokesperson for the National Center for Science Education, a nonprofit that promotes the teaching of evolution in schools, asserted on the group's website that "one in eight high school biology teachers advocate for Creationism, even though it's 'unconstitutional,'" in response reports that some teachers in Bossier Parish Schools based in Benton, Louisiana, are using the Bible when teaching on evolution.
Rosenau's comments were a reaction to an article in the left-leaning Slate magazine that reportedly acquired emails from faculty in Bossier Parish wherein a science teacher was said to be teaching about Creationism in the classroom and using materials that included the Bible. more >>
Christian conferences are often pitched as life-changing opportunities to fellowship and inspire spiritual growth through the sharing of the Gospel by popular pastors and singers with major followings in the Christian community. With tickets to some of these events costing up to $799 to register, according to an investigation by The Christian Post, concerns are being raised about the monetization of the Gospel that the Bible declares is free.
"I think it may reduce the number of people in attendance," Steve Brower, pastor at Faith & Victory Fellowship in Freeport, New York, told CP. "We also don't want to reinforce the association that the world has of the church being all about money."
Popular televangelist Joyce Meyer, of the Missouri-based Joyce Meyer Ministries, also does not charge a fee for all but one of her conferences because she wants to reach as many people with the Gospel as possible. more >>
Christians believe that Jesus Christ is coming back for His church. Pastor Greg Laurie of a California megachurch urged the congregation to take that promise of Jesus seriously, and shared what surrounds this great event and what they should do until then.
"Christ is going to come back. … He is returning to judge His enemies, set up His kingdom and rule over the Earth for a thousand years," Laurie, the pastor of Harvest Church, said, as he began his message on Sunday titled, "Till He Comes."
There are 300 passages in the Bible that deal with the return of Jesus, Laurie said, adding that Jesus also spoke of it at least 21 times. more >>
What is God's answer to the moral insanity of the world? Jesus the Messiah, crucified and risen. Jesus the Messiah, the Lord of all.
God's answer to human rebellion remains the same as it has always been: the cross of Christ. That must be the answer we proclaim to the world, without shame or doubt.
It is true that we are in the midst of an unprecedented moral and cultural decline in our nation, and it is true that there is no political or social solution that can turn the tide. more >>
Bestselling author and pastor Tim Keller has reviewed Matthew Vines' book, God and the Gay Christian, pointing out that the author's "main arguments" in claiming that homosexuality is not a sin are wrong. Vines has responded, disagreeing with the review.
Keller, pastor at Redeemer Presbyterian Church in Manhattan, New York, posted his review of Vines' book as well as that of Ken Wilson's A Letter to My Congregation – both of which are pro-homosexuality – on the church's website.
"Vines and Wilson relate stories of people who were sure that the Bible condemned homosexuality. However, they were brought to a change of mind through getting to know gay people personally," Keller wrote. more >>
