Several notable Christian and conservative commentators are pushing back against renowned theologian Wayne Grudem, whose 5,300-word defense of Donald Trump has gone viral, with some saying the move justifies a "wicked deed."
Because of the theological weight Grudem carries in the evangelical world — he is a professor of theology and biblical studies at Phoenix Seminary and served as the general editor of the English Standard Version Study Bible — some see this as particularly egregious in light of the Republican presidential nominee's public mockery of a Muslim family whose son was killed in combat in Iraq.

Tony Evans is a well-respected pastor, author and the first African-American to earn a doctorate in Theology from the Dallas Theological Seminary. Yet his seemingly unfettered accomplishments came with significant opposition.
Amid racial tension across the nation, the "I Am Second," movement that helps people discover their purpose in life by putting Christ first, is sharing a video interview with Evans from 2009 who addressed how he learned to overcome the limits that others placed on him because of his race.

The Islamic State terror group has released the latest issue of its English-language magazine Dabiq, in which the extremists claim that Jesus Christ was a "slave of Allah" and much of the New Testament was fabricated, urging Christians to "break their crosses" and convert to Islam.
"Break the Cross," as the latest issue of Dabiq is titled, argues that Jesus was never crucified, and the Apostle Paul was a "criminal" and a "treacherous Jew" who decided to abandon massacring Christians in order to pervert the religion from inside.
The editors of the IS magazine demand that people in the West follow them and learn "why Muslims hate and fight them, why pagan Christians should break their crosses, why liberalist secularists should return to the fitrah (natural human disposition), and why skeptical atheists should recognize their Creator and submit to Him." more >>
