WASHINGTON — Christian apologist Jason Jimenez argued Saturday that the church in America is "biblically illiterate" and Christians only have themselves to blame for being silenced in the political arena.
Jimenez, a pastor, author and apologist for Stand Strong Ministries and who tours the country teaching Christians how to stand up for their biblical views on marriage, abortion and other political issues, told attendees of a panel discussion at the Faith & Freedom Coalition's 2016 "Road to Majority" conference that there is a troubling trend of Christians who don't read the Bible and don't stand up for Christian principles in the public square.
"The church in America, we are biblically illiterate. We revere the Bible. The average home in America owns four bibles, if you are not including the devices that we have. Yet, we don't read the Bible," Jimenez explained. "We can talk about all these issues and I am sure we will talk about some of them but the biggest issue is that we have a whole nation of Christians that are biblically illiterate." more >>

WASHINGTON — College students need to stand up and fight for their free speech rights on campus in order to end the societal trend of illiberal liberalism that is beginning to plague the American culture, a religious freedom lawyer maintained Friday.
As today's political Left has fallen into the habit of trying to stifle debate by labeling social conservative arguments as racist, bigoted and offensive, Casey Mattox, senior counsel for the Christian legal group Alliance Defending Freedom, argued that society's infestation of intolerant liberalism can only be cured if it is first eliminated from the college campuses across the country that helped give birth to it.
At the Faith & Freedom Coalition's 2016 "Road to Majority Conference," Mattox participated in a panel discussion addressing "how to stop the left's all-out assault on religious freedom and freedom of speech." more >>
Great fiction has warned us of the dangers of playing God with human genetics, but sadly, what's going on these days isn't fiction.
In one of this summer's most-awaited novels, "The City of Mirrors," author Justin Cronin completes his unlikely literary trilogy about a world overrun by vampire-like creatures he dubs "virals."
Unlike Bram Stoker's creation, the disaster unleashed by his monsters is entirely man-made. Men, seeking to "play God," created monstrous hybrids they could never hope to control, with disastrous but completely predictable results. more >>
