WASHINGTON — America is drifting away from God, prominent Christian leaders have been warning, and there are consequences that the country may face as a result.
The Christian Post recently caught up with some Christian leaders at the UnitedCry DC16 event to discuss the spiritual state of the nation, and what could happen if Americans don't make a spiritual U-turn.
Pastor Doug Stringer believes that if America doesn't wake up and heed God's warnings, He may remove His protective hedge. more >>
Within a 48-hour period this week, a Federal court ruled that a school could not require children to use the bathroom that corresponds to their biological sex, Target announced it was making all its bathrooms gender neutral, a school council in England sent out a letter to parents, telling them to encourage their 4-year-old children to choose the gender they most identify with before starting school, be it male, female, or something else, and baseball legend Curt Schilling was fired by ESPN for sharing an "anti-transgender" post. (Note that ESPN fired Schilling because it is an "inclusive" company. The Orwellian doublespeak continues.)
It is high time, then, that we stand up to this social madness and say, "Enough!"
The emperor has no clothes, and if enough of us stand up and make our voices heard, society will be jarred back to reality. more >>
Tennessee's legislature failed to override a veto on a bill that if enacted would have made the Holy Bible the state's official book.
After considerable debate the veto override failed by seven votes, falling short of the necessary number of 50 House members.
"Republican Rep. Jerry Sexton, a former Baptist minister who was the main House sponsor of the measure, urged colleagues to follow what he called the 'will of the people' in rejecting the veto," reported the Associated Press. more >>
A soon-to-be mother from Evansville, Indiana, has reported seeing an image resembling Jesus Christ on the cross in the sonogram image of her baby boy.
Aley Meyer told 14 News that she started noticing the image in the sonogram only after someone pointed it out to her during a baby shower.
"We took a picture of it and blew it up on my phone to get a closer look and it is so much detail. You can see the hair and his legs crossed and everything," Meyer exclaimed. more >>
Crowds across Britain have gathered on Thursday to celebrate the 90th birthday of Queen Elizabeth II, the oldest monarch in the world, who has often spoken out about her strong Christian faith and how central following Jesus Christ is in her life.
Prime Minister David Cameron called her "a rock of strength for our nation," Reuters reports. And close to 1,000 beacons will be lit later in the day to celebrate the occasion.
"All of us are here to respect the queen and to show her our affection and how much we appreciate all her years of service and to wish her a happy birthday," said Donna Werner who traveled to the queen's Windsor Castle home, west of London, all the way from Connecticut to pay her respects. more >>
A federal court ruled that a transgender teen's lawsuit against a Virginia school district can move forward, supporting an Obama administration ruling that schools should allow bathroom access based upon gender identity rather than anatomy.
A three judge panel of the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled Tuesday that Gavin Grimm's lawsuit against Gloucester County Schools over not being allowed to use the men's room will be reheard at the lower court level, with instructions to favor the U.S. Justice Department's ruling that not allowing students to choose bathroom or locker room facilities based upon their gender identity is sex discrimination.
In a 2-1 decision, the majority opinion read that regarding the lower court decision they "reverse in part, vacate in part, and remand the case for further proceedings consistent with this opinion." more >>
