Recent comments from the Rev. Franklin Graham might make this year's No. 13 NFL draft pick Laremy Tunsil the poster child for how personal activities can negatively impact one's professional life.
Graham blasted Tunsil on Facebook last week regarding the football player's recently resurfaced bong-smoking video, asking, "How much does it cost to act stupid? It could cost you millions — just ask Laremy Tunsil."

"To understand why evil exists, we have to know where it comes from," Freeman says. "For Christianity, it could be the devil himself, or is evil something that comes from inside us?"
Growing up as a child in Mississippi, Freeman encountered his first experience with evil in the form of racism at a Greyhound bus station where white and black people were segregated and he was forced to enter through a door designated for "colored" people. Freeman explains that as a young boy, he was confused by the ordeal. more >>

The U.S. Department of Education published Friday a list of faith-based colleges and universities that requested and were granted a religious exemption from Title IX. LGBT activist groups have been calling on the government to publish the list as part of a shaming campaign called the "Shame List" to pressure Christian colleges to consent to their agenda.
The document reveals that an increasing number of colleges are seeking exemptions, and that evangelical Wheaton College is not on the list.
