Korn's Brian "Head" Welch says he finds it tiring to invite people to know Jesus — like the transgender men and women he ministered to at a July 31 rock concert — when religious people chase them away with harsh words.
"I'm begging you, [Christians], please stop," Welch said last week on his Facebook page.
In an interview with The Christian Post on Monday, Welch, 46, shared more of what happened that night and the fruit that has come of it. Though Welch said he speaks in churches from time to time, God continues to open doors for him to witness to hurting people in unconventional settings outside its four walls. more >>
God's plan for the Middle East is "working perfectly" even though the persecution of Middle Eastern Christians is seemingly getting worse by the day, a persecuted Christian woman told American churchgoers on Sunday.
The Christian woman, who is referred to by the pseudonym of "Maryam" for security purposes, was encouraged by a group of six pastors and ministry leaders from the United States to travel to America and share her family's story of persecution and speak about the dedicated faith displayed by Christians in the Middle East.
This past Sunday, Maryam visited MeadowBrook Baptist Church in Gadsden, Alabama, and shared the story of how her father was sentenced to six months in jail after he complained to police about a Muslim man who was blocking the entrance to his store, threatening to kill him and disfigure his daughters with acid. more >>

The Christian family of Republican Kansas state Rep. Scott Schwab attended a worship service just hours before the lawmaker's 10-year-old son, Caleb, was decapitated on the Verrückt slide at the Schlitterbahn water park in Kansas on Sunday.
While details about what happened at the park are still emerging as state officials investigate, close family friends told The Kansas City Star on Monday that the family attended the LifeMission Church in Olathe where they are members on Sunday morning and had debated whether or not they should go to the water park afterwards.
They were concerned, said the report, because of the cool weather, early clouds and a forecast for possible rain. When the sun came out, however, Scott and his wife, Michele, decided to take Caleb and his three other brothers to the water park for a day when admission was free to families of elected officials in the area. more >>

Caleb Schwab, the 10-year-old son of Christian Republican Kansas state Rep. Scott Schwab, who died at the Schlitterbahn water park in Kansas City on Sunday while riding the Verrückt, known as the world's tallest water slide, was decapitated during the ride, local police and eyewitnesses confirmed on Monday.
Information released by police in Kansas City said Caleb, who has been described as a faithful Christian and athlete, suffered a "fatal neck injury." He was found dead in a pool at the bottom of the slide and police confirmed with People magazine that the boy was decapitated.
Eyewitness Esteban Castaneda told ABC News that the scene at the park after Caleb's death was horrific. Castaneda recalled first hearing booms coming from the area of the slide where the accident occurred then saw a body wash down directly after a raft did. more >>
