Some Christians have become bored with the Bible because they've forgotten its importance, Marshall Segal, who serves as the associate editor of DesiringGod.org, explains.
Segal suggests that while some Christians neglect to read their Bible, there are others who [love] reading the Holy Book. "They can't get enough of it. As far as you know, they would just as likely go a whole day without food as without the Bible."
"Their happy discipline convicts and, if you're honest, sometimes even annoys you. Who is it in your life who is most likely to pray like this?" Segal asks. more >>
Many have come out in support of Hillary Clinton, who noted in Brooklyn, New York, this week that it is "the first time in our nation's history a woman will be a major party's nominee," including award-winning gospel singer Yolanda Adams. However not all of Adams' Christian fans are happy about it.
"Today is a day of Historic Significance because once again we make history as a country," Adams wrote on Facebook. "Congrats to Dem Nom Sec Hillary Clinton!! God's best to you me dear."
Thousands of responses followed, many celebrating Clinton while others selecting the angry face emoticon on the social media site to express their disapproval. more >>
Christians often feel stressed because they have not fully surrendered their life to God, says Pastor Rick Warren, who urges people to read Proverbs 3:5-6 which reads: "Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make straight your paths."
Warren, senior pastor of the popular Saddleback Church in Orange County, California, explained in his daily devotional on Thursday that there are moments in life when believers struggle to fully surrender to God, whether it be financially or in personal relationships. And this unwillingness to surrender leads to more stress.
"Some of you have not surrendered your relationships to God. 'I know I should forgive that person who hurt me, but I'm not about to forgive them.' That's why you're under stress," the evangelical pastor explains. more >>
Christian singer and actor Pat Boone has backed Netherlands' 2,500-ton life sized replica of Noah's Ark, which will set sail for a cross-Atlantic journey to the 2016 Paralympics in Brazil, where it will preach the Gospel message.
"My friends at the Ark of Noah Foundation plan to bring a life-size biblical replica of Noah's Ark from the Netherlands to the 2016 Paralympics in Brazil," Boone said in a statement. "From there, it will go through South America, Central America and then the United States."
Famous professor and atheist author Richard Dawkins delivered a video message at last week's Reason Rally in Washington D.C. where he slammed the belief in God as "cowardice," and urged people to resist what he called the "God temptation."
"The fact that you exist should brim you over with astonishment. You and I and every other living creature are machines of ineffable complexity. This complexity and its powerful illusion of design is why so many people succumb to the God temptation," the evolutionary biologist said in his message, posted online.
"The temptation to evade, by invoking a designer, the responsibility to explain. The God temptation is an evasion of responsibility because it invokes the very kind of thing it's supposed to be explaining." more >>
Franklin Graham, the son of famous Evangelical leader Billy Graham, has recalled a meeting between his father and boxing great Muhammad Ali, where the latter, a devoted Muslim, said if he were a Christian, he'd have wanted to be like Billy Graham.
Franklin Graham also wondered, however, about the state of Ali's soul, arguing that his Islamic faith would not have saved him.
In a Facebook post on Thursday, he shared a photo of a meeting between Billy Graham and Ali in Louisville, Kentucky, in June 2001, and recalled that they had met before in North Carolina in 1979. After that meeting, Ali apparently said: more >>
