Controversial Trinity Church Pastor Mark Driscoll believes that polygamy might soon become legalized in America and that gender fluidity and neutrality will likely be the cause.

Powell, who served as the head of the State Department from 2001 to 2005 under President George W. Bush, defended himself on Saturday during an event in New York. more >>
Some people have a more difficult time trusting in God than others, says the Rev. Billy Graham, citing examples in the Bible to illustrate what happens when people take their eyes off of God.
In the latest installment of his syndicated column published in the Kansas City Star, the famed evangelist says he believes that some individuals do seem to have a harder time trusting in God and believing that His way is always best.
"They may be sincere believers — and yet they still have a hard time taking their hands off their situation and living by faith," says Graham. more >>
