"Duck Dynasty" star Sadie Robertson recently praised God following a terrifying car accident during New York Fashion Week.

Although Robertson sustained minor injuries, she expressed gratitude for her safety via Instagram on Sept. 15. Robertson had been participating in New York Fashion Week, where she supported designer Sherri Hill, before the accident occurred.
"Current mood. but thankful I'm okay — got into a car accident this morning. I walked away with just a swollen knee and a sore neck. the other person is fine as well. the Lord protected me & I will praise His name for that," she wrote to her two million followers. more >>
When it comes to taking action to help Syrian refugees, 90-year-old Marion Courtney has got her head in the game — literally. The British woman shaved her head on Saturday to show support and raise funds for Christian Aid, a charity whose objective is to support those affected by war and violence in countries such as Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan and South Sudan.
Courtney has already raised £610 or $924 on the London-based charitable giving site, Just Giving, as of Tuesday. Her page on the site reads: "Having seen the plight of the children and their families in Syria and remembering the exodus of the Jewish people from Germany, the troubles in Syria are the greatest that this generation has known."
She continues, "I just want to help by raising as much funds for the Christian Aid ACTS Alliance to help the refugees on the ground." more >>
Answers in Genesis CEO and President Ken Ham has responded to a recent pro-abortion video made by The Planetary Society CEO Bill Nye "The Science Guy," and claimed that Nye is calling on women to "murder" their babies. Nye had argued that pro-life supporters are wrong to trust their interpretation of the Bible, and said that they do not understand science.
"If you're going to say when an egg is fertilized it therefore has the same rights as an individual, then whom are you going to sue? Whom are you going to imprison? Every woman who's had a fertilized egg pass through her? Every guy who's sperm has fertilized an egg and then it didn't become a human? Have all these people failed you?" Nye asks in the video. more >>
As hypersexualized dance programs like pole workouts become increasingly popular among women of all ages, especially young girls, one Christian woman is battling against the trend while others defend it merely as a form of physical fitness, not sexual exploitation.
"We are allowing children as young as 3 and 4 to use their bodies and movements in a way that really hurts them and hurts the culture," said Mary Bawden, who directs a dance ministry at the Evangelical-Free Trinity Church in Redlands, California, during an interview with The Christian Post.
"Instead of the beauty of dance this is the misuse of dance," she asserted, warning parents that "many forms of dance are now pushing young children toward adult-oriented themes and choreography." more >>
Pro-Planned Parenthood activists pelted Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina with condoms, she recalled in a heated abortion discussion on NBC's "Meet the Press."
At an Iowa football tailgate Saturday, Fiorina was confronted by Planned Parenthood supporters that are angered by her constant criticism of the organization in the wake of the release of controversial videos that have dogged the popular abortion provider.
An NBC News video of the incident shows protestors, many clad in pink, holding Planned Parenthood signs and chanting, "Carly Fiorina off-sides for telling lies" and "women are watching and we vote." An ABC news reporter and social media users offered their own evidence that condoms were thrown at Fiorina and those supporting her campaign outside the Iowa Hawkeyes football stadium. more >>
The portrayal of sex by Hollywood might lead many to the believe that sex is sinful and that it undermines the beauty of Christ's holiness, but Christians should not think this way, says theologian John Piper in his latest blog post, which states that sex in marriage belongs to Believers.
It was false teachers, as pointed out by Paul in 1 Timothy 4:1–5, who believed that "sex in marriage and eating foods freely were at best for second-class Christianity," writes Piper, chancellor of Bethlehem College & Seminary, in his blog, desiringGod.
For believers, "the sex of marriage and the pleasures of food are made holy — that is, they are set apart from the sinful use of the world and made pure and precious and beautiful by participation in the goodness of God," he explains. more >>
