Contrary to conventional wisdom, millennials are not "hooking up" at an alarming rate; in fact, many are not having sex whatsoever, according to a study released this week.
In the study, published in the Archives of Sexual Behavior, researchers Jean M. Twenge, Ryne A. Sherman, and Brooke E. Wells found that young people born in the 1990s were "significantly more likely to have no sexual partners" than Gen Xers. When controlled for a time period and age, the only generation with a higher rate of sexual inactivity than today's 20 to 24 year olds was the one born in the 1920s.
Researchers also found that 15 percent of Americans in their early 20s who were born in the 1990s reported being sexually inactive as compared to only 6 percent of those born in the late 1960s. more >>
WASHINGTON D.C. — What if there were a place that contained nearly every facet of the Bible under one roof? An edifice where visitors could see authentic ancient biblical artifacts and even learn about the Bible in their native tongue? The forthcoming Museum of the Bible plans to be that place.
With 430,000 square feet of exhibit space, the museum — which will have been in the works for an estimated five years from land acquisition to completion — is set to open its doors to visitors on Nov. 17, 2017.
The museum will offer guests an unprecedented Bible experience complete with interactive exhibits and translations into an impressive 1,007 languages through its partnership with the YouVersion Bible App. more >>
Christians must speak in crystal clear terms when talking about Satan and sexual perversion, John Piper says.
Piper, founder of DesiringGod.org and former pastor of Bethlehem Baptist Church in Minneapolis, Minnesota, discussed the dangers of same-sex sexual acts in a Wednesday post on his website, urging Christians to choose their words carefully when communicating the truth and to recognize the devil for who he really is.
"[Satan] is a murderer and a liar. His aim is to kill people — forever. He is a lion who devours (1 Peter 5:8). Partly by pain, partly by pleasure. But always by deception — just as with Adam and Eve in the garden of Eden," Piper said. more >>
A Christian flag that was removed earlier this year from a Tennessee school board meeting room flies again inside the chambers thanks to the actions of a local church group.
In January, the Unicoi County School Board of Education voted to remove a Christian flag from its chambers and donate it to the local Unicoi County Ministerial Association.
Since then, the Ministerial Association has flown the very Christian flag donated to them months ago during school board meetings. more >>
The small number of differences within various ancient copies of the Holy Bible do not change the truth of the Gospel message, says Pastor John Piper.
In a recent podcast posted to Piper's website desiringgod.com, the theologian and author was asked about verses known to have been added to the Bible later on.
The Rev. Billy Graham says if he had to name the most convincing evidence for God's existence, it would be none other than Jesus Christ.
In his nationally syndicated advice column published on Tuesday, the 97-year-old evangelist was asked to provide one convincing piece of evidence to prove that God exists.
"I grew up in a religious family, but I outgrew all that years ago, and now I don't believe in God. Can you give me even one reason — just one — why I should believe in God?" the person asked. more >>
