An interfaith imperative that brings together over 30 leaders from major world religions, including the World Evangelical Alliance, has launched a call to action to end extreme poverty by 2030 and tackle issues such as climate change.
"What does it mean for the Church to understand that God loves all the world?" asked Christine MacMillan, WEA's director for public engagement, in a phone interview with The Christian Post on Friday.
"There are two questions that you cannot change the answer to for yourself, or anybody else: Who your parents are, and where were you born.

We need to acknowledge that we do not live on an equal plane on this Earth, and God gives us a challenge to create some form of equality by loving our neighbors as ourselves." more >>
Attorneys for ousted Atlanta Fire Chief Kelvin Cochran say the city of Atlanta's request to have his discrimination lawsuit dismissed only proves their argument that Cochran was fired because city authorities do not agree with his Christian beliefs.
In a brief filed in federal court on Wednesday, the Alliance Defending Freedom attorneys said the city's motion to dismiss, which was filed in federal district court on March 25, "fails to make a persuasive argument for the court to dismiss Cochran's lawsuit."
Cochran, who served as fire chief for seven years, is suing the city, which he claims violated his constitutional rights when he was terminated in January for sharing his Christian faith in a self-published book and handing out copies to employees. more >>

The man who co-wrote a novelty Bible that replaces the word "God" with Kanye, in honor of iconic rapper Kanye West, says his book is not intended to offend Christians but rather to provoke thought and broader discussions about faith and culture.

The book recently sparked a firestorm of criticism and one of the authors has spoken out publicly for the first time in an exclusive interview with The Christian Post.
