Dr. James Dobson, the founder of Focus on the Family and Family Talk, says Donald Trump has recently given his life to Jesus Christ and is now "a baby Christian," urging believers to pray for him.
In an interview with Pastor Michael Anthony of GodFactor.com, Dobson said, "There are a lot of people ministering to him personally — a lot of ministers… He did accept a relationship with Christ. I know the person who led him to Christ, and that's fairly recent. I don't know when it was, but it has not been long."
Dobson added: "I believe he really made a commitment, but he's a baby Christian. We all need to be praying for him, especially if there is a possibility of him being our next chief executive officer." more >>
The new season of "Home Free" stars former NFL quarterback Tim Tebow, who says the show highlights the biblical principle that it is more blessed to give than to receive.
The second season is different from season 1 in that it encourages every competitor to win a home for a hero in their life as well as a grand prize sum of $100,000 for themselves. Each contestant must make it down Homefree Blvd., building one by one an entire neighborhood for their heroes, with the grand prize resulting in a dream home.
Contrary to his partner home improvement expert Mike Holmes, Tebow has a softer approach to lead the contestants. His role is to encourage them and give them the will to make it to the end. more >>
The film "Free State of Jones," opening this Friday, gives viewers a look into the life and faith of Mississippi farmer Newt Knight, played by Matthew McConaughey, who through his role was able to openly share the faith and passion of his revolutionary character.
The epic action drama is based on Oscar-nominated writer/director Gary Ross' original screenplay that tells the extraordinary story of Newt Knight, a Southern farmer who becomes a leader that inspires a rebellion. The film explores the issues of class inequality and race relations that permeated the South during the Civil War. It also tells the story of men and women during this tenuous time who have strong faith in God and who are dealing with the moral struggle of inequality and the laws they are forced to follow.
"Free State of Jones" shows Knight rallying those who believe that "…no man ought to tell another man what he's got to live for – or what he's got to die for." He and his men fought for freedom, equality, and the ideal that "…no one can own a child of God." more >>
Even though the subject of Hell is not a pleasant topic to think about, street evangelist Ray Comfort says Christians must use it as part of their evangelism efforts so their pleas to skeptics have urgency.
"The accusation of the skeptic is that we use the threat of Hell to control the weak-minded. That may be true of some religions that hold their power because they control the masses, but the second the skeptic finds himself in Hell he will know that we only warned of it because we loved him," Comfort wrote in a Facebook message on Thursday.
He asked: "Do we ever weep as we pray for the lost? Dry eyes and hard hearts go hand in hand. How can we profess to have the love of God in our hearts if we don't plead with the unsaved to repent and turn to the Savior? And how can we do that with any passion if we don't care?" more >>
I'm extremely saddened by the negative comments toward pastors who have sought to advise Trump — Jack Graham, Jentezen Franklin, Harry Jackson, and many others who have helped me immensely — these are godly men.
Don't we want national Christian leaders advising a possible future President? Of course we do ... so why is there a huge divide?
The first reason why Christians are divided is because many claiming to be "Christians" are not genuinely saved. They have "religion" but not a true relationship with God. As a result, their perception of truth is skewed, hence the divide. They are led by Hollywood, not the Holy Spirit. more >>
Headlines across the nation herald presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump's Tuesday meeting with over 1,000 major Evangelical leaders and the launch of his Evangelical Executive Advisory Board which includes James Dobson, Jerry Falwell, Jr., and David Jeremiah.
It's understandable if you want to avoid more presidential race coverage, but we just can't ignore some of our Evangelical leaders' puzzling response to Trump.
According to The Washington Post, "the Donald" earned a standing ovation from his captivated conservative Christian audience. With such a warm and fuzzy response to a man known for having a very public affair, bringing the first strip club to Atlantic City's casinos, and prompting brazen misogyny, it's hard to ignore a compromising shift in attitudes among certain Evangelical leaders. more >>
