Best friends Blair Reynolds and Justin Stumvoll, hosts of the "The Liberation Project" podcast, started their program after observing what they describe as an absence of masculinity among men in the Church.
"I was absolutely grieved," Reynolds said in an interview with The Christian Post. "When I became a Christian I was saddened by the lack of masculinity in the Church. It baffled me how passionless and passive so many men were."
During their youth, Reynolds and Stumvoll said when they encountered the Lord they noticed they became more manly, a real shift in their hearts had taken place. But they struggled to know how to express and live that out, particularly in a Christian context. more >>
WASHINGTON — Gospel pioneer Kirk Franklin hit the stage early in the morning Saturday at Together 2016, the millennial-focused prayer and worship gathering held at the National Mall, and led with a prayer that reached to the core of those in attendance.
In his prayer, Franklin spoke about the significance of family, and urged women to get their self-worth from God and not what rappers such as yeezy, Jay Z, or Drake say. He then rebuked the temptations that lead couples to divorce and encouraged parents to fight for their marriages. And he ended the prayer by asking God to make a change in him, so that he would be willing to die for his family, to die for the white man, and ultimately to die for every man.
During the free event various artists and ministers addressed the vast crowd, commissioning the next generation to unite under the banner of Jesus. more >>
Is the excessive amount of sex, drugs and violence featured in the hit Starz series "Power" making one of its actors uncomfortable because of her Christian roots?
The answer is not a simple one for 32-year-old singer-turned-actress Naturi Naughton who plays Tasha St. Patrick, the wife of drug dealer James "Ghost" St. Patrick. As Tasha on "Power," Naughton has appeared nude in graphic sex scenes, used profanity and glorified drug dealing.
While she's said she feels conflicted at times, the actress who starred in BET's church comedy "Let the Church Say Amen" last year, believes she is not disrespecting the Church or her Christian faith. more >>
Candace Cameron Bure is expressing her disappointment with presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump's pick of Indiana Governor Mike Pence as his running mate for vice president.
On "The View" Friday the actress and mother of three said she would've liked to have seen a more "culturally balanced" Republican ticket, adding that she preferred the likes of Ben Carson for the VP slot.
"I think he [Mike Pence] is a smart choice in terms of trying to bridge the GOP, bridge the Republican party back together because he does hold conservative values," she said, adding, "he's been in office for a long time. He has a record of consistent, conservative choices that he's made." more >>
WASHINGTON — God hasn't abandoned the United States, but Christians in America are withdrawing from God with their relative silence about Him, said Carmen LaBerge at an event for her radio show "The Reconnect" Thursday evening.
"I don't really think that God has been pressed out of the public square. I think Christians have very quietly receded, like little seventh graders at a dance, and they are just not engaged," said LaBerge, who's in her seventh year of serving as the president of the Presbyterian Lay Committee.
Speaking about her program on the Salem Radio Network, LaBerge announced that "The Reconnect" is now being broadcast on station WAVA 780 AM in the District of Columbia. The live show aims to reconnect believers with biblical truth by engaging Christians on the news of the day and matters of national and global importance. more >>
At least 15 Muslims were arrested in the Egyptian village of Abu Yacoub on Saturday for setting fire to Coptic Christians' homes and a nursery, allegedly because they feared they would be used as churches.
The persecution of Christians has been on the rise in Egypt this past year, with similar attacks being reported in other villages. The state-owned Ahram Online reported that five buildings, along with a nursery, were attacked and burned down Friday night by the Muslim mob that wrongly believed the homes and nursery would be used as Christian houses of worship.
The Ministry of Endowments has reportedly sent representatives to Minya to talk to local villagers in response to the arson attack, and encourage them to avoid violence and instead choose "love and cooperation." more >>
