A New York City church has stirred controversy among members of the LGBT community because a sign at its location says Jesus Christ would have stoned homosexuals.
ATLAH World Missionary Church in Harlem recently posted the sign that reads: "Jesus Would Stone Homos. … Stoning is Still the Law," and includes a few scripture citations below.
James David Manning, pastor at ATLAH, told The Christian Post that the message was put up over a week ago in order to counter the "flat out lies" of LGBT activists regarding Jesus and the Bible. more >>
A prominent "Internet Evangelist" has challenged HBO comedian and social commentator Bill Maher to a debate after Maher's most recent anti-religious remarks.
Bill Keller, head of the website liveprayer.com, released a statement Monday calling Maher "gutless blasphemous coward" and demanding to debate the television personality.
"Maher, like his hero satan, is a typical gutless wonder who bravely runs his mouth when unopposed, but is a true coward when it comes to defending his blasphemous beliefs against someone who can articulate a case for the Christian faith like myself," stated Keller. more >>
Controversial televangelist Pat Robertson has recently stated that watching graphic entertainment such as a horror series or X-rated material can give demons "permission" to haunt a person.
The host of the television program "The 700 Club" received a letter from a viewer named "Michele" who asked a question about the linkage between demonic hauntings and disturbing entertainment.
"I was watching a horror movie the other day on the recommendation of others. It was rather strange and awfully macabre. And then, this past Sunday, I got into an accident leaving church," wrote Michele. more >>
Some are crying foul at the opening episode of the much-anticipated reboot of the Carl Sagan science program "Cosmos."
Hosted by astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson, Sunday's debut episode featured an animated segment on the persecution of Giordano Bruno, a 16th-century monk and astronomer.
Bruno claimed that neither the earth nor the sun was the center of the universe, reportedly prompting his arrest and execution as demanded by the Roman Catholic Church. It is a scene that some, including media researcher Matt Philbin, have decried as unfairly attacking the Catholic Church. more >>
At an upcoming live simulcast event, three of the best teachers and speakers in apologetics and biblical hermeneutics, Lee Strobel, Mark Mittelberg, and Michael Licona, plan to give their answer to the question: Did Jesus of Nazareth really rise from the dead?
"The Case for Easter" event will be simulcast on the evening of Sunday, April 6, and hosted by churches all around North America, Strobel, who wrote the book by the same name, told The Christian Post via email recently.
"The resurrection, of course, is a linchpin of the Christian faith," Strobel writes. "As Paul said in 1 Corinthians 15:17: 'If Christ has not been raised, your faith is futile, you're still in your sins.' more >>
NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Filmmaker and media consultant Phil Cooke, who has been the host of several panel discussions at the four-day National Religious Broadcasters Convention, said that even though some of the recent movies coming out based on stories from the Bible are inaccurate, it's important for Christians to engage in the conversation about such films.
"Hollywood is putting millions and millions, and millions of dollars putting biblical stories out there, and my feeling is some will be accurate, some will not be so accurate. But the fact is that they are giving us an incredible opportunity to share those stories with friends and co-workers," Cooke told The Christian Post during a break in sessions at the NRB event. "I mean, 'Noah,' it's going to be water-cooler conversation. So let's get in there and start sharing our views on the story."
Cooke, whose expertise and accomplishments in the media marketplace are highly regarded, often talks about the need for better quality movies from the Christian community. more >>
