The sister and sister-in-law of a Pakistani Christian man who is now in hiding after being accused of blasphemy have been arrested and tortured by police officers in hopes they would turn over their brother.
According to reports, blasphemy charges were formally brought against Christian tailor Nadeem James, who lives in the Father Colony of Sarai Alamgir in Pakistan's Punjab province, on Sunday after he had a falling out with one of his Muslim childhood friends.
According to the London-based British Pakistani Christian Association, James had a dispute with his friend Yasir Bashir on July 4 and it is believed that the argument was over the fact that James married a Muslim woman who has since converted to Christianity. more >>
Outspoken Christian real estate entrepreneurs Jason and David Benham say last week's shooting deaths of two black men by police officers in Louisiana and Minnesota and the killing of five police officers in Dallas are major signs that America is entrenched in a godless "culture of death."
The twin brothers — who gained prominence among conservative Christians when HGTV dropped their reality TV show amid pressure from LGBT activist groups opposed to their biblical view of marriage — took to Facebook last Friday to issue their thoughts about the killing of Philando Castile and Alton Sterling by police officers in Minneapolis and Baton Rouge and the killing of five Dallas police officers last Thursday.

Erica Campbell believes that gun violence in America, such as the killing of over 1,800 people in Chicago this year from gang violence and the two officer-involved shooting deaths of black men last week, are caused by demonic forces that are out to destroy the world.
The Grammy Award-winning gospel music singer and first lady of the California Worship Center took to Instagram to give a spiritual take on the problems that plague disenfranchised communities throughout the nation.
"They're demons on assignment to stop our progress. Yes there is injustice but what we're really fighting against is a stronghold, not people," Campbell wrote on Instagram. "Satan wants the world destroyed! If WE the body of Christ, The Whole Body all over the world unite we win!" more >>
