Evangelical preacher Franklin Graham has warned that there will be no forgiveness or second chances in hell, commenting on the early prison release of South African Paralympic runner Oscar Pistorius, who served only 10 months out of a five year sentence.
"In hell, where all who are guilty of breaking God's laws will be condemned for eternity, there will be no parole, no forgiveness, no second chances," Graham warned in a Facebook post on Monday.
He added: "God is offering amnesty to all sinners if they are willing to repent and turn from their sins and receive God's provision for their sin — the blood of His very own Son, Jesus Christ, who died on a Cross for the sins of all mankind, was buried, and God raised to life." more >>
Sexual revelations about their children shake most parents to the core.
Let's face it – "our little Katie" getting naked with a boy or "our little Kevin" guzzling porn on his smart phone and chronically masturbating is an exercise that – again – most parents can't mentally engage or never want to imagine. However, to personally witness the shock, awe, shame, and personal disappointment in themselves as they deal with a teenage sexual revelation after the fact is even more painful.
Republicans are more likely to be married, less likely to divorce, and are more likely to be happy in their marriage than Democrats, sociologists W. Bradford Wilcox and Nicholas Wolfinger have discovered.
Fifty-seven percent of Republicans are married, compared to 40 percent of Democrats; 41 percent of ever-married Republicans have been divorced, compared to 47 percent of ever-married Democrats; and, 67 percent of married Republicans say they are in "very happy" marriages, compared to 60 percent of married Democrats, they reported for Family Studies, the blog of the Institute for Family Studies.

GOP presidential candidate and ordained Baptist minister Mike Huckabee has defended the government of Paraguay's decision not to perform a late-term abortion on an 11-year-old girl who was repeatedly raped by her stepfather. Huckabee described the case as a "terrible tragedy," but argued that an abortion would not solve the problem.
"Let nobody be misled, a 10-year-old girl being raped is horrible. But does it solve the problem by taking the life of an innocent child — that's really the issue," Huckabee said in an interview with CNN on Sunday.
The case in question concerns an 11-year-old girl who was allegedly repeatedly raped by her stepfather when she was 10 (she turned 11 in May). The traditionally Roman Catholic South American country ruled that she would not be granted the late-term abortion her mother was seeking, with Health Minister Antonio Barrios declaring in May that "the pregnancy will not be interrupted." more >>
Off the top of your head, who can you say ignites crusades in America where 90 percent of the attendees are under 18 and have never been saved by Jesus Christ?
I struggled to answer this question too when it was posed to me recently by a 24-year-old Hispanic pastor named Brian Barcelona. Barcelona knew the answer. Actually, Brian Barcelona is the answer.
Barcelona is the founder of One Voice, a Los Angeles-based ministry that seeks to bring the Gospel to local high school students by strengthening student Bible clubs. more >>
