New converts to Christianity need to grow in spiritual maturity, says the Rev. Billy Graham, responding to a question from a young believer who wants to know what they should be doing in their life before they go to Heaven.
In a question and answer column published by the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association on Monday, Graham was asked what a Christian is supposed to do after they're saved and profess their faith in Jesus Christ.
"I'm in high school, and I decided to give my life to Jesus at a church camp this summer. I know this means I'll go to Heaven when I die, but what am I supposed to do in the meantime?" the student asked. more >>
Prominent theologians and scholars are saying this week that while globalism may be a buzzword this election season, too few understand the demonic forces driving this ideology.
As The New York Times reported Monday, until relatively recently it was rare to hear people referred to as "globalists" but the label is more common now. And while many globalists claim to have the interests of the entire world at heart, the irony is that they have become a tribe of sorts; and they are a wealthy, elite, and powerful tribe for whom national borders are an impediment to their agenda.
While many definitions for globalism exist, a wide chasm separates 1) necessary global exchanges in an increasingly interconnected world, like trade, legal immigration, and the cooperation and sharing of ideas across borders, and 2) globalism as a secular humanistic religion of sorts that envisons a one-world government. more >>
Best-selling Christian author Philip Yancey stated that he cannot understand how so many evangelical Christians can support Republican nominee Donald Trump.
In an interview with the Europe-based publication Evangelical Focus published last Friday, Yancey said he was "staggered" by the support evangelical voters are giving Trump.
"I am staggered that so many conservative or evangelical Christians would see a man who is a bully, who made his money by casinos, who has had several wives and several affairs … That they would somehow paint him as a hero, as someone that we could stand behind," explained Yancey. more >>
Seventeen years after the deadly shooting at Columbine High School, contemporary Christian music artist Jeremy Camp wrote a Christian anthem in honor of the faith of Rachel Joy Scott, the first murder victim of the Columbine High School massacre.
"Hey Guys, I am excited to share this brand-new song and the world premiere of the music video we made for it. The song is also the title track to the new movie coming out on October 21st called 'I'm Not Ashamed,'" Camp wrote on Facebook along with his music video for the song, which features clips from the film.
Rachel Joy Scott was targeted because of her Christian faith. She was the first of 12 students and one teacher who were gunned down at Columbine on April 20, 1999, and the film, "I Am Not Ashamed" is based on her journals, which are said to be honest and heartfelt accounts of her life. more >>
Young Earth Creationist Ken Ham, who frequently speaks out against the growth of atheism in society, has said secularists borrow from the Christian worldview, despite rejecting God, since their worldview is "bankrupt, meaningless, and hopeless."
"How do secularists determine right and wrong? Bill Nye told me 'a consensus of the tribe,' but then it's all subjective. How can secularists talk about morality? Without an absolute basis where do they draw the lines? Who draws the lines? Ultimately it fails," Ham wrote on Facebook on Monday.
"Secularists borrow from the Christian world view — they borrow from the laws of nature, from laws of logic — they assume God whom they reject. The secularist worldview is ultimately totally bankrupt, purposeless, meaningless, and hopeless — purpose, hope and meaning are only found in Christ," he added. more >>
Grammy nominated singer Crowder stopped by "Fox & Friends" last week and sung his new song, "Run Devil Run," which is a song dedicated solely to taunting Satan.
Before the edgy performance, Crowder talked about his new album, American Prodigal. He revealed that he stayed up until midnight waiting for the release of his new record. When asked about his album title and his patriotism, the worshipper says he "loves" being an American.
"It couldn't fall at a better time with all the conversations being what they are right now," he said of his album. more >>
