Sir Salman Rushdie, author of the controversial book Satanic Verses that led to a fatwa being issued against him by the Iranian regime which wanted him killed, will be the guest speaker at a literary event hosted by the historic Washington National Cathedral Thursday evening.
"Having Salman Rushdie at the Cathedral reflects our mission to serve as a venue for the arts (including the written arts) and serving as a convener for interesting and important discussions with leading figures in public life," Kevin Eckstrom, chief communications officer at Washington National Cathedral, told The Christian Post.
This will be the first time that Rushdie has spoken at an event hosted by the National Cathedral. more >>

If you ask Bill Johnson, many Christians will say they believe God is good because the Bible says so, but the way they interpret His goodness is another matter entirely.
Johnson, 65, who is the senior pastor of Bethel Church in Redding, California, said in a recent interview with The Christian Post that for some in the Body of Christ, wrong beliefs about Him are often borne out of the potent pain and disappointment that comes from unanswered prayers. God's character is thus impugned in the process.
"It's what I refer to as lazy theology," Johnson told CP without an ounce of accusation in his voice, particularly the idea that "because sometimes something doesn't happen, it must not be His will." more >>
Best-selling author and evangelical preacher Tony Campolo is defending the Red Letter Christians evangelical movement he helped found that gives the words of Jesus more authority than the rest of the Bible.
The movement takes its name from how some editions of the Bible put the words of Jesus in red lettering to distinguish them from the rest of the text.
In an interview with The Christian Post, Campolo explained that Red Letter Christians believe the "red letters are the most important part of the Scripture" because "Jesus raises the moral standard." more >>
America's fall away from God has more to do with sex than unbelief in Christianity, according to Christian author and speaker Frank Turek.
If professed atheists are challenged with the question, "If Christianity were true would you become a Christian?" Turek believes that more often than not it would show that the real reason many atheists deny God is not so much because of a lack of evidence that God exists, but it would reveal a desire to pursue sexual freedom outside the confines of Christian morality.
Speaking at the Southern Evangelical Seminary's 23rd annual National Conference on Christian Apologetics at Calvary Church in Charlotte, North Carolina, on Friday, Turek explained how sex has been resurrected as a new religion in America and it is driving what he agrees is an "erotic revolt" against Christian values. more >>
Christian theologian Norman Geisler said on Friday at a major Christian apologetics conference that America has paid a heavy price for abandoning God, such as rising rates of teen suicide, divorce, violent crime, and abortion, but urged Americans to rediscover their Christian roots and get back in God's favor.
Geisler focused his speech at the Southern Evangelical Seminary's 23rd annual National Conference on Christian Apologetics in Charlotte on three main topics — how America was founded on faith in God, how it lost that faith in the public sphere, and how it can regain God's favor.
Geisler, who is a prominent evangelical apologist, said "there is nothing that I am more concerned about today than what is happening in our country, and as a result happening elsewhere around the world." more >>
