St. Louis-based rapper and Christian activist Thi'sl addresses racial tensions in his latest album, Heavy is the Head, in which he criticizes Christians for turning their backs on the Great Commission by failing to share the Gospel with those who live in their own backyards — inner city youth.
Ignoring the plight of those living in the nation's inner cities only makes them more susceptible to being influenced by groups such as the Nation of Islam and New Black Panthers who claim that Christianity is the "white man's religion," Thi'sl said during an interview with The Christian Post.
"Everything in this world is either furthering the Gospel or trying to stop it," he continued, expressing his frustration over the Church's reaction to racial unrest in Ferguson, Missouri, and Staten Island, New York, in the Michael Brown and Eric Garner cases. more >>
The Center for Medical Progress released its 10th undercover Planned Parenthood video Tuesday morning, which purports to show high-level officials discussing how the absensce of national PPFA guidelines for organ and tissue compensation allows affiliates to profit off the sell of babies' body parts, and keeps them from being "bullied by ridiculous laws."
As it's a federal crime for any person to profit off of the sale of aborted babies' tissue going to research, the latest video in the CMP investigative series features Planned Parenthood's national director of its Consortium of Abortion Providers, Deb Vanderhei, explaining that some "independent colleagues" do "generate a fair amount of income" from the compensation for aborted babies.
While independent colleagues could refer to unaffiliated abortion providers, Vanderhei explains Planned Parenthood's own national guidelines on tissue procurement. She says that the nation's largest abortion business intentionally lacks national compensation guidelines in order to let affiliate clinics decide whether their tissue donation policy will be "mission-based" or if they "want to engage in remuneration." more >>
An Indiana pastor who's overwhelmed by the violence plaguing his city is taking a creative approach to address the escalating murder rate in Indianapolis by showcasing a "dummy in a casket" display to reveal the devastating aftermath families are left with when a child is killed as a casualty of criminal gang violence.
Pastor Anthony Pippens of Greater New Hope Church started using the dummy in a casket two years ago in his street ministry and has been setting up the display in various parts of his community.
"[The goal with the display is] to make a shocking and profound statement concerning the things that are going on in our community as far as black on black crime is concerned," said Pippens to The Christian Post. more >>

On the 14th anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks a man was allegedly planning to set off a bomb at a memorial event. Fortunately, FBI agents were able to apprehend the suspect early Thursday morning before he caused any damage. Joshua Ryne Goldberg, 20, of Orange Park, Florida, is now facing up to 20 years behind bars for the alleged plot to bomb the Kansas City Stair Climb in Kansas City, Missouri.
Golberg was charged with "distributing information relating to explosives, destructive devices and weapons of mass detsruction," according to court documents. The man had been communicating with a group of five others online about the bomb and told one — an FBI informant — to "put as much sharp stuff as you can in there" and to "use shards of metal and nails."
A similar kind of bomb was used at the Boston Marathon bombings that killed three and injured 264 others in 2013, U.S. Attorney Lee Bentley III told station WJXT. The information, along with his instructions to place the bomb at the Kansas City Stair Climb, was enough to make an arrest. more >>
