Pope Francis is set to begin his tour of several African countries on Wednesday, and will be visiting communities torn apart by Islamic militants and Muslim-Christian strife with a message that all people are one human family.
"We are living at a time when religious believers, and persons of goodwill everywhere are called to foster mutual understanding and respect, and to support each other as members of our one human family. For all of us are God's children," Francis said in his pre-trip message. more >>
"Lord teach us to pray." It was the grand request of the disciples of Jesus Christ, asking Him how to communicate with God.
Prayer is the most important conversation a believer can have, as it involves talking with the Almighty, who made Heaven and Earth.
The Son of God taught His disciples how to pray, and He demonstrated how to pray, both in word and deed. Below, in no particular order, are five Bible passages showing how Jesus prayed and what He said. more >>
"The Breakfast Club," a morning show created for the hip hop listening audience in New York, has become quite the go-to spot for preachers and christian artists lately. In a recent interview with Hillsong NYC's leader, Carl Lentz, co-hosts DJ Envy, Angela Yee, and Charlamagne Tha God, questioned the pastor about his modern day approach to christianity and what causes him to be linked to A-list celebrities.
Lentz was invited to the popular Power 105.1 studio after Kirk Franklin mentioned his name while visiting previously. The team was intriqued by how much Franklin respected the pastor and decided to invite him to be a guest on their show.
During Lentz's appearance, a normally vulgar Charlamagne asked him questions about his unique appearance as a pastor, his ministry and his thoughts on fornication. They inquired about his brand of preaching, and his relationship with global music star Justin Bieber. more >>
If faith and perseverance were muscles, then life would be the ideal resistance trainer, and Jase and Missy Robertson would be musclebound.
Toughened by life's tests and trials, the Duck Dynasty couple has cultivated the kind of faith that makes them sure about their family's future. " … Whatever happens, we're confident that God is going to be with us," Missy Robertson told The Christian Post last week in an interview. " … We know it 100 percent."
But that kind of certainty doesn't come easy — it's forged in the midst of adversity. For Jase and Missy, adversity came in the form of health challenges with their daughter, Mia. These challenges have taught them valuable lessons. more >>
RICHMOND, Va. — The Benham Brothers have said that being pro-life is a vital position to hold and one that requires more than just opposing abortion.
At a gala held Thursday in honor of a pro-life facility called the Pregnancy Resource Center, Jason and David Benham stressed the importance of the pro-life movement in national politics.
Before over 500 attendees at the Richmond Marriott, the brothers called on Christians "to be lightning bolts" instead of "lightning bugs" when it comes to witnessing, adding that "where you stand on life is where you stand on everything." more >>
The United States government has a "God-given responsibility" to secure its borders and "protect its citizens" from extremists trying to infiltrate the country, Dallas megachurch Pastor Robert Jeffress has said.
Following the Islamic State's attacks in Paris earlier this month, Americans remain largely divided on whether the U.S. should allow Syrian refugees to resettle inside the country.
As the Obama administration gears up to resettle up to 10,000 Syrian refugees in the next fiscal year, many Christian conservatives have argued that granting them asylum in the U.S. will make the nation more susceptible to attacks from jihadis who have infiltrated the resettlement program. more >>
