True respect for life requires us to get out of our comfort zone.
Oh, we might say, "I respect life, I vote for 'pro-life' politicians who claim they will work to end abortion." However, in a democracy voting is usually easy and comfortable.
But are we willing to regularly stand outside of an abortion mill on a freezing winter morning or hot summer afternoon praying and witnessing to the humanity of our unborn brothers and sisters? That's harder and somewhat uncomfortable. more >>
In response to my October 3rd article, "Gordon College, Don't Sell Your Soul for Secular Accreditation," a representative of the school reached out to me with some very positive news, assuring me that the school had no intention of changing its policy on homosexual practice.
First, I was referred to a statement by Gordon College President Michael D. Lindsay, quoted in a September 20, 2014 interview with the (Gordon) Tartan school newspaper.
In the interview, President Lindsay stated that, " . . . I think it would be shortsighted for us as a community to expect, come February, the board is going to make some master pronouncement, and that will be the end-all-be-all. Based on my conversations, I think that the board is currently quite satisfied with our current policy around homosexual behavior." more >>
Christians of different denominations and backgrounds frequently take to social media to debate over theology and criticize pastors and leaders they do not agree with.
Pastor Chris Durso of Christ Tabernacle Church of Queens, New York, blasted the practice during a previous interview with The Christian Post while discussing some of the criticism he has received over the Internet about the way he does ministry.
"I get tons of mean tweets and Instagram posts, and the thing that kills me the most is that none of that is biblical, and none of that is responding or acting in love like the Bible tells us to do," Durso told CP. "The irony of somebody ridiculing me with such anger and disrespect blows my mind." more >>
NEW YORK — The Supreme Court has declined to hear appeals affecting the legalization of gay marriage in five states, effectively doing away with attempts to maintain the traditional definition of marriage in those states. As a result, six other states will likely follow suit as they also fall under the same federal court jurisdiction. This means that same-sex marriage could be legal in 30, or even 35 states, plus Washington, D.C. if the trend continues.
Eric Metaxas, author, television host and outspoken religious freedom advocate, shared his thoughts with The Christian Post about the Supreme Court's latest move, which gay marriage proponents have cast as the "final legal stamp of approval to marriage equality."

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, who has not been seen in public in well over a month, missed a major national ceremony paying tribute to his late father and grandfather, fueling speculations on Friday over his whereabouts.
The KCNA state agency published several articles about the 69th founding anniversary of the Workers' Party of Korea, but Kim was not listed among the attendees. Hwang Pyong So, North Korea's second most important leader, attended a flower presentation in Kim's name at the shrine at Kamsusuan Palace of the Sun in Pyongyang, but Kim himself was missing.
The last time the 31-year-old leader was seen in public was at a music concert along his wife, Ri Sol Ju, on Sept. 3. Since then, he has missed a number of events that he was expected to attend, including the convening of the parliament for its second session of the year in late September, and a welcoming of athletes from the Asian Games earlier this week. more >>
