Young Earth Creationist Ken Ham has responded to criticism from Bill Nye "the Science Guy" over the recently opened Ark Encounter in Kentucky, by claiming that Nye is seeking to "brainwash" children and convince them that they're "just animals."
Nye had argued in an interview with NBC News that not only was the life-sized Noah's Ark theme park "disturbing," but on the Ark's third deck, every single one of the science exhibits was supposedly "absolutely wrong."
"Not just misleading, but wrong," Nye said. more >>
In light of the Pokemon Go craze that's endangering the safety of some gamers, and the many violent-natured shoot 'em up games like the Call of Duty and Battlefield series, one can't help but wonder: should Christians play such video games?
In a July video blog, Arizona-based Trinity Church Pastor Mark Driscoll answers whether or not it's godly for believers to play video games, and the pastor's first bit of advice is to pay attention to one's conscience.

"The Bible talks a lot about our conscience in the opening chapters of Romans, places like Proverbs — that God has given us a conscience, and in addition to His Word and the Holy Spirit, God has given us a conscience to help us be sensitive to things that are ungodly or unwise. So, I would say if your conscience is bothering and burdening you, then you really need to pay attention to that." more >>

John S. Dickerson, a pastor, author and speaker who wrote the 2013 book The Great Evangelical Recession, told The Christian Post conservative Christian leaders he knows who have had cultural influence in the past but still refuse to acknowledge the decline are "isolated from reality, because we are already past the tipping point."

WASHINGTON – Christian contemporary artist Matthew West hit the stage early Saturday morning at Together 2016, the millennial-focused prayer and worship gathering held at the National Mall, and the singer said after having the honor of leading worship, he left inspired to write a song about the theme of the entire event.
"I was actually on stage today and the extent of my performance was – my buddy Nick Hall said, 'Hey can you please come out and play guitar and just sing a little bit while I'm preaching.' It was pretty much the most awesome moment to be up there with him and Tim Tebow was up there, and he's speaking and it was just a powerful moment," West told The Christian Post during a media Q&A.
The event, which drew nearly half a million people, was inspired by evangelist and college pastor Nick Hall, founder of PULSE. Together 2016 brought Christians from all over the nation together in prayer to empower the Church and awaken the culture to Jesus. more >>
