As Pastor Mark Driscoll continues to rebuild his ministry after the collapse of his Seattle-based Mars Hill Church in 2014, the clergyman is offering his biblical perspective on perceived unforgivable sin.
In a video blog posted to his website Monday, the Arizona-based Trinity Church pastor tackled the issue in the context of specific Scriptures, and advised that once a believer receives eternal life, they can't lose it.
The viewer expressed difficulty with understanding certain Scriptures, asking if there is a single act that is unforgivable and "excludes a person from salvation." The viewer noted Scriptures that seemed to contradict each other, referring to Mark 3: 20-29, Mark 3: 28-29, Matthew 12: 31-32 and Luke 12:10. more >>
Conservative Christian brothers David and Jason Benham are speaking out against the government's "godless agenda" that stems from the "hippie sexual revolution" and the Obama administration's transgender directives that pressure schools to give boys access to girls bathrooms and locker rooms.
"From the hippie sexual revolution of the '60s to the gender unicorn today — our school rooms are the fertile soil for godless government agendas," the Benhams wrote in a Facebook post Monday.
David Benham elaborated on those thoughts in a speech he made last week at the Charlotte Mecklenburg School Board meeting where he talked about the Department of Education's directive. more >>
People should never think that God hates them just because they live with a disability or suffer from physical problems, says famed evangelist the Rev. Billy Graham.
In his advice column on the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association website, a person who has a physical disability asked Graham why God allowed them to have physical problems.
Anne Graham Lotz, the daughter of world renowned evangelist Billy Graham, is asking why people keep resisting and arguing with God despite His undisputed power.
"If God is undisputed in His power in the universe — and He is — why do we argue with Him, resisting His authoritative claim on our lives?" Lotz asked in a Facebook post on Monday.
"He created you and me, He bought us at Calvary, and He is the only One Who has the right to rule our lives. Would you yield the reins of the government of your life to Him? You and I need to stop resisting His will, stop arguing about His purpose, stop complaining about His methods, and just submit to His authority." more >>
Independent presidential hopeful Evan McMullin, a former CIA agent and chief policy director for the House Republican Conference, spoke with The Christian Post about religious liberty, Donald Trump, his Mormon faith, and the challenge of getting his name on state ballots.
On August 8, McMullin garnered national headlines when he announced that he was going to run for president, arguing in an open letter that Americans deserve a better choice than either Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton or Republican nominee Donald Trump.
"Like millions of Americans, I had hoped this year would bring us better nominees who, despite party differences, could offer compelling visions of a better future," stated McMullin. "Instead, we have been left with two candidates who are fundamentally unfit for the profound responsibilities they seek." more >>
Bill Nye "The Science Guy" can be seen in a video telling a young girl at Young Earth Creationist Ken Ham's Ark Encounter theme park in Kentucky that she is a "wonderful, beautiful animal," though Ham argued back that she was created by God.
Ham has been posting online a series of videos showcasing the debate between himself and Nye at the Ark Encounter in July, with the latest addition on Sunday featuring a conversation the two men have with a young girl as they are walking through the life-sized Noah's Ark theme park.
The girl in the video asks "How did God create us?" to which Ham replies that "the Bible says He spoke and it happened." more >>
