The negative view held by Non-Evangelicals about Evangelicals, as reflected in a recent poll, is because believers have lost sight of the Gospel's core message, said Billy Graham's grandson and Florida pastor Tullian Tchividjian.
"The core message of the Christian faith has been lost in the public sector because what we are primarily known for is our political ideology or opinion," Tchividjian told The Christian Post.
Over the last 30 years, the Religious Right has replaced Christianity's foremost message of the Gospel with that of a political movement, argued the current pastor of Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church. more >>

For over ten years I lived the homosexual lifestyle and for 34 years I have not. And there are very good reasons for that difference. To those who suggest that I never was homosexual, my response is, "Does sleeping with over 1,000 men count?
Oh yes. I was homosexual, though like most, I never wanted to have such attractions. I saw the narcissism and arrested emotional development all around me, and in me. Guys flitting around like Peter Pan were sometimes cute and funny, and certainly nonthreatening, but I wanted to be a grown up. I wanted to be a man.

I cringed at the epidemic of perverse sexual behaviors commonly practiced and celebrated by gay culture and wanted nothing to do with them. more >>
Wearing a 49ers jersey to the Seahawks stadium was like going into the lions' den. Because of who I represented by wearing those colors, I faced jeers and cheers, love and hate, hugs and tossed mugs of beer, acceptance and rejection, affirmation and confrontation.
It was a NFL playoff game with a Super Bowl appearance in the balance, but my jersey taught me a lesson about "fandamonium"and the "brand" I represent. I'm hoping you will take a seat in the classroom as well.

A group advocating for marriage being legally recognized as only being between one man and one woman has called for a boycott of JP Morgan Chase.
National Organization for Marriage announced its boycott of the financial company earlier this week due to a survey the company did of employees that many believe was meant to punish employees who disagree with pro-LGBT positions.
Joseph Grabowski, director of communications for NOM, told The Christian Post that the idea for the boycott came when "Chase asked its employees in their annual survey whether they were 'allies' of the LGBT community." more >>
A new film will focus on the friendship of two British authors responsible for some of the most popular fantasy series in recent decades.
The close relationship between J.R.R. Tolkien, the author of The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit, and C.S. Lewis, the author of The Chronicles of Narnia, will be at the heart of a new $18 million film, according to Entertainment Weekly earlier this week.
