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 >>
An exclusive first look at the upcoming episode of "A.D. The Bible Continues" airing this Sunday features Saul and Caiaphas going head-to-head over Jesus' message.
Despite the imminent danger of persecution while speaking Jesus' name, Saul testifies that Jesus is the messiah while speaking to Caiaphas in an exclusive look at the highly anticipated 10th episode.
"Isaiah's prophecy has been completed, Jesus is our Messiah. He rose from the dead and I have been born again in His name. I have repented and He has forgiven me, and my sins are forever washed away," declares Saul during the clip.

A federal court has ruled that a Washington state public school district acted unconstitutionally when it suspended a student after he preached and handed out religious reading materials to classmates on school grounds during free time.
Michael Leal, a senior at Cascade High School in the Seattle suburb of Everett, was suspended three times last fall for continuing to provide students with pre-printed Christian pamphlets, which is a violation of the school's policy that does not allow students to distribute materials that they had not written themselves.
Leal, with the help of the Pacific Justice Institute, sued the school and stated that the school violated his free speech rights. more >>
A California pastor who once went to church with Caitlyn Jenner, formerly known as Bruce Jenner, has described the celebrated Olympic athlete as once being a standout Christian who taught him a lot about Jesus Christ. He has also called on Christians not to turn their backs on the LGBT community and instead ask "what would Jesus do?"
Josh Cobia, now a musician and the pastor at Resonate Church in Santa Monica, Californnia, said he first met Bruce Jenner, 65, years ago after being approached by Life Change Community Church pastor Brad Johnson to minister at the nondenominational evangelical church. Life Change Community Church, recently renamed California Community Church and located in Agoura Hills, was co-founded by Johnson and Jenner's now ex-wife, Kris Jenner.
In a recent blog on his website, Cobia recalled once worshipping with America's most famous reality TV family (the Kardashian/Jenners) and noted Jenner as being the most committed to his faith amongst the unlikely clan. more >>
I've always liked Bruce Jenner. When I was a kid he was an Olympic hero. I must admit I questioned his judgment for marrying into the Kardashians.
But I see him as someone who needs wise counsel, loving help, prayer, and while it may sound cliché, Jesus. I'm betting that what he's getting is advice from people with $$ signs in their eyes, who are successfully exploiting him for personal gain.
So here are some points you need to know about Courage, Sex Change and God: more >>
