Republican presidential hopeful Donald J. Trump recently spoke the praises of famed Christian quarterback and Nathan Fillion lookalike contest winner Tim Tebow.
The Donald commended the football star and philanthropist, who recently gained headlines for carrying 500 pounds of medical supplies across the Amazon to benefit a struggling orphanage.
"Let me tell you, I love Tim Tebow. Tebow is really a guy, I mean a really great guy. Ever been around him? I have. And you know what? He's great," said Trump. more >>
WASHINGTON — Contemporary Christian singer Lauren Daigle urged millennials to combat fear and hatred with love in a message at Together 2016 at the National Mall on Saturday, and hopes they left feeling empowered to seek God's wisdom wherever their mission field is: at school, work and in their communities.
"The word empower is something that kept coming up in my heart," Daigle told The Christian Post during a Q&A on Saturday. "If we show people that fear isn't actually the place that we have to surrender to, fear isn't actually the thing that we have to answer to, but instead it's going in and loving people."
"It's going into the places that are dangerous and saying, 'OK God, I'm going to partner with you in this mission to go after that person who can potentially harm me.' Or to go after the homeless and say, 'I'm going to love you,'" Daigle shared. more >>
Late evangelical leader Jerry Falwell Sr. once had a dream about Chelsea Clinton in which he told her a "yo mamma" joke, recalled Liberty University President Jerry Falwell Jr. at the Republican National Convention Thursday night.
Just hours before Donald Trump took the stage at the Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland to formally accept the GOP nomination for president, Falwell Jr., one of Trump's earliest and most dedicated evangelical endorsers, addressed the convention crowd just like his father, who founded the political organization Moral Majority, did 32 years ago.
"In 1984, my father stood at this convention and offered the opening prayer before our party's candidate, Ronald Reagan, went on to accept the nomination and win in a landslide," Falwell explained. "A little over 30 years later, I stand here with the sincerest prayer that history is about to repeat itself with the election of Donald J. Trump." more >>
Several conservative voices from North Carolina, including the Rev. Franklin Graham and the Benham Brothers, have spoken out against the NBA's decision to pull the 2017 All-Star game from Charlotte to protest the state's transgender bathroom law.
"The fact is this — the North Carolina legislators and Governor Pat McCrory are exactly right for protecting the state's women and children from pedophiles and sexually disturbed people who are looking for opportunities to take advantage," Graham said late Thursday night in response to the NBA's decision.
"This is basic common sense, but the NBA cares more about being perceived as politically correct and catering to sexual activists who are trying to use this situation as a scare tactic to gain leverage to change North Carolina's law. I think the NBA needs to realize that the safety of women and children is far more important than a ball game," he added. more >>
Young Earth Creationist Ken Ham has responded to criticism from Bill Nye "the Science Guy" over the recently opened Ark Encounter in Kentucky, by claiming that Nye is seeking to "brainwash" children and convince them that they're "just animals."
Nye had argued in an interview with NBC News that not only was the life-sized Noah's Ark theme park "disturbing," but on the Ark's third deck, every single one of the science exhibits was supposedly "absolutely wrong."
"Not just misleading, but wrong," Nye said. more >>
Family Research Council president and Ted Cruz supporter Tony Perkins urged all Americans to vote for Republican nominee Donald Trump during his remarks Thursday night at the Republican National Convention.
Perkins, a prominent evangelical leader who headed the Pro-Lifers for Cruz Coalition, was hesitant at first to officially support Trump after the billionaire real estate mogul clinched enough delegates to become the GOP's presumptive nominee in May.
But Perkins finally gave Trump his vote of confidence in a brief, 3-minute speech just a couple hours before the Manhattan businessman took the stage at the Quicken Loans Arena to formally accept the GOP nomination. more >>
