These two Texas pastors decided to do something unique which they are calling the "tale of two cities." After acknowledging racial tension that had been occurring in Texas, they decided to stand up. They knew they needed to take the stand and remind people that God loves EVERYONE!
It just so happens that we all may forget that God loves all of us no matter our race, color, or ethnicity. No matter how different we may be, God loves us all! How these two pastors decided to approach this topic is truly amazing. They entered each others' churches and delivered powerful sermons. The congregation remembered that that they are not so different after all. God bless them for what they are doing, and most of all for spreading the love of God!
They hope what they did on Palm Sunday won't just build a bridge between their congregations, but over the racial divide in their city. more >>
"A.D. The Bible Continues" creators Roma Downey and Mark Burnett recently made an appearance at David Jeremiah's Shadow Mountain Community Church in El Cajon, California, where they discussed their upcoming series as well as their successful miniseries "The Bible" and the TV show "Shark Tank."
Burnett noted that the series projects he's involved in are family friendly, and celebrated the fact that "Shark Tank" and "The Bible" represent what he believes to be the very foundation of American civilization.
"Interestingly enough, I often joke that America was built on two things: the Bible and free enterprise," Burnett told the congregation at Jeremiah's church on March 12. "Well, we made 'The Bible' and we make 'Shark Tank.'" more >>
An expert on the history of American evangelical denominations is taking issue with the claim by some that Reconstructionism, a strict faction within conservative Christianity, is America's version of the Islamic State.
Christian Reconstructionism, which calls for the application of biblical law in society, has been compared in recent months to the Middle Eastern terrorist group that's best known in the United States as ISIS.
The U.S. Navy received a petition Monday that calls for the reinstatement of a chaplain allegedly disciplined for his Christian beliefs, and who is now facing possible discharge and the loss of his military retirement.
Washington, D.C.-based Family Research Council and the Restore Military Religious Freedom Coalition delivered the petition, which has been signed by more than 101,000 people, in support of Lt. Commander Wes Modder.
"More than 100,000 Americans are joining together in this petition to say they will not stand for service members being punished and driven out simply for living in accordance with their religious beliefs," said FRC President Tony Perkins in a statement. more >>
A Christian fellowship student group is no longer being recognized at California State University, Stanislaus because its requirement that student leaders be Christian is considered discriminatory and a violation of a statewide non-discrimination order.
The University System of California is no longer recognizing Cal State Stanislaus' chapter of the Christian student organization Chi Alpha, which under the name of Stanislaus Christian Fellowship has been a part of the campus for over 40 years.
The group was deactivated after the school discovered that the group's constitution required students to hold a Christian faith in order to be placed into leadership positions, which is in direct violation of a state university system executive order of non-discrimination. more >>
A Republican lawmaker accused of saying that a recent attack on a pregnant woman whose baby was cut from her womb was a "curse from God," has apologized and says that he was misquoted by the media.
Last week, Gordon Klingenschmitt, a Republican member of the state House of Representatives from Colorado Springs, was widely rebuked by both democrats and republicans over comments he made on his "Pray in Jesus Name" satellite television show. His comments were about a tragic case involving Colorado resident, Michelle Wilkins, 26, who was 7 months pregnant when she was brutally attacked on March 18.
During a phone call with The Christian Post on Monday, Klingenschmitt apologized for his "insensitive" comments. He said that he spoke privately with the family of Wilkins, who survived the gruesome attack although her baby did not. more >>
