Answers in Genesis CEO and President Ken Ham has said that retail giant Target's recent decision to allow customers to use bathroom and fitting facilities corresponding to their gender identity rather than biological sex is going "against God's Word."

America's working class has been the subject of studies analyzing the large spikes in alcohol- and drug-related deaths over the last few decades, and churches and Christian-based recovery groups are playing a vital role in saving lives by helping people overcome their addictions.
"The church should have a role in helping people with any type of addiction. Depending on the congregation and their level of resources that help will vary. Some churches are taking an active role in developing in-house assistance and counseling while others that are not funded for this type of activity are partnering with people in their congregation who have a heart and vision for this type of ministry," said Ray Perea, CEO and facility director of Revival Recovery Services in Apple Valley, California, in an interview with The Christian Post.

There is always room for improvement. As people begin to reach out I see the church in the future being able to provide more solutions," Perea added. more >>

RONKS, Pa. — An elaborate theatre performance of the biblical story of Samson sympathizes with Delilah as audiences are taken on a journey of grace and the realization that everyone is one decision away from making the wrong choices in life.
During a recent tour and screening of the new theatrical performance of "Samson" at the historic Lancaster County theatre, lead actress Julie Marie Sturycz explained her sympathetic portrayal of Delilah and why she believes the biblical villain was just being "human."
"The first thing I learned about the script was the song 'Freedom,' and it's really amazing because it gives Delilah a voice to explain where she's at and why she chooses what she chooses," Sturycz told The Christian Post.
