Florida Pastor Paula White, former Congresswoman Michele Bachmann and National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference President the Rev. Samuel Rodriguez are among the signatories of an open letter demanding that Hillary Clinton apologize for the "Christophobic" rhetoric found in emails among campaign staffers.

Pastor Greg Laurie of Harvest Christian Fellowship in Riverside, California, has offered his interpretation of a debated biblical story in Exodus in which he assured believers that despite what some might claim, there are no contradictions in the Bible.
Laurie took to Facebook on Tuesday to explore the story of Pharaoh in the book of Exodus in the Bible, particularly passages that suggest it was God, but also Pharaoh himself, who hardened his heart in the face of the plagues on Egypt that punished Pharaoh and his people for their treatment of the Israelites.
"What's the deal, a person asks, about God hardening Pharaoh's heart in the book of Exodus? But then it says that Pharaoh hardened his heart. Is that a contradiction? No. It's two sides of the same coin," Laurie argued. more >>
The 47th annual GMA Dove Awards named Lauren Daigle and Kirk Franklin among the biggest winners last night, while reuniting the legendary group DC Talk on stage.
Tuesday's show at the Allen Arena at Lipscomb University in Nashville, Tennessee, surprised everyone in attendance when rock/rap trio DC Talk hit the stage together following a 16-year hiatus. TobyMac kicked things off by performing one of his songs and then brought out bandmates Kevin Max and Michael Tait to perform "Love Feels Like," a new tune that brought the three together in the studio this past year.
As the award show continued, Lauren Daigle earned the night's top honor for the prestigious category of "Artist of the Year," just one year after being named the best "new artist" in Christian music by the association. more >>

The Wesleyan Covenant Association, a newly formed evangelical group of clergy and laity seeking to have the United Methodist Church go in a theologically conservative direction, held its inaugural one-day conference in Chicago, Illinois, on Friday that was attended by over 1,800 people.
"I am convinced God is doing a new thing among those of us who claim the historic, Orthodox, evangelical, Wesleyan expression of our faith," said the Rev. Jeff Greenway of Reynoldsburg United Methodist Church near Columbus, Ohio, who is one of the leaders of the WCA, according to Good News magazine.
"I believe we are planting seeds today that when full grown will bear the fruit of a vital Wesleyan witness and a dynamic Spirit-filled Methodism across the globe," he added while speaking at the conference, as reported by UMC.org. more >>
