Texas megachurch leader Robert Jeffress warned that the Republican Party will face a massive boycott if they do not nominate current frontrunner Donald Trump.

In an interview on the Fox Business channel earlier this week, the senior pastor of First Baptist Church of Dallas argued that Cruz and Kasich's strategy was "distasteful." more >>

Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin will decide this week whether to sign into law a bill that would strip abortion-providing doctors of their medical licenses, effectively ban the practice in the state.
LifeNews reported that the bill passed the Oklahoma House on Thursday of last week, after it had already passed the state Senate in March. The legislation states that doctors who perform abortions, with the exception being cases to save the mother's life, will be charged with "unprofessional conduct" and will be barred from renewing their medical licenses.
Fallin, who is a Republican but has not yet indicated whether she will sign the law or not, is facing big pressure from abortion-providing groups, such as Planned Parenthood. Oklahoma state Sen. Nathan Dahm, who sponsored the bill, said, however, that its purpose is to protect the lives of unborn babies. more >>
Ken Ham, president and founder of Answers in Genesis, took to social media Monday morning to send a message to secularists who criticize Noah's Ark and blame God for all of the world's problems.
Ham is launching The Ark Encounter, a theme park set to open in Kentucky this summer. The main attraction is the largest timber frame structure in the world, replicating Noah's Ark from the Bible. The structure standing at 510 feet long, in accordance with the dimensions specified in the Bible, is getting a lot of attention not only across the United States but around the world.
Along with international interest has come an onslaught of attacks on The Ark Encounter. Ham took to Twitter Monday morning to address those who are trying to discredit the validity of Noah's Ark and who argue that the Bible's account of the great flood is cruel and unjust. more >>
With the release of his debut album The River, contemporary Christian artist Jordan Feliz is winning over the hearts of many with his mainstream appeal and passion for worship.
Feliz started out as a part of secular band that was steadily growing an audience and making a name for itself, but as he began to pray about his future he felt unsure of where he was heading in the group and said God started closing doors. Soon after, still remaining prayerful, he was asked to serve part time as the worship leader of a church he felt drawn to.
Within a few months of being obedient to God's shift for his life, Feliz received a phone call from an old friend asking him if he would fly out to Nashville and write and record a few songs, all expenses paid. While in music city, the singer fell in love and he and his wife prayed for about a year until he heard from God that he was to move there and make music for the church. more >>
