The president of the American Family Association has warned that unless millennials, the generation born between 1980 and 2000, are convinced that they still need God, then the American Church will continue to decline.
"In America we have more Christian churches, movies, and attractions than at any time in our history. And yet, Christianity is on the decline," AFA President Tim Wildmon wrote in an article Tuesday.

Oscar-winning actor Morgan Freeman said that he remains an agnostic ahead of this week's release of his next film, faith-infused "Ben Hur," but said nonetheless that the movie offers virtues such as redemption, tolerance and love that inform humankind.
Freeman admitted in an interview with AFP in Los Angeles that he is still an agnostic, but remains deeply interested in religion. Beside owning a library of religious texts at home, including the Quran and several Bibles, Freeman has also taken part in several documentary series about faith, including National Geographic's recent "The Story of God" project.
The 79-year-old actor, who famously played the role of God in the 2003 comedy "Bruce Almighty," is set to play a Nubian sheik in the upcoming "Ben-Hur" remake, which tells the story of Judah Ben-Hur (Jack Huston), a Roman prince falsely accused of treason, who is exiled and becomes a slave, before encountering Jesus Christ and being changed by his example. more >>
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 >>
