On two separate occasion this week, influential evangelicals Dr. Ben Carson, Kirk Cameron and entertainer Carman answered questions about the advantages and disadvantages of marijuana.
First, during a Facebook live interactive event on Tuesday, Carson, a former Republican presidential candidate, teamed up with Cameron to discuss why it's important for evangelical Christians to vote, especially in the upcoming presidential election on Nov. 8. During the Q&A with callers, the men were asked about their views on the use of marijuana, and the push to make the drug legal in all 50 states.
Tweleve minutes into the Q&A, a man phoned in and asked for advice on how Christians should react to marijuana advocates pushing for its legalization, such as in his home state of Arkansas. more >>
While it's no secret that many Christians are beyond bewildered this election season, with some expressing extreme dislike for both presidential nominees, the president of Intercessors for America is urging believers to both pray fervently and to vote in November.
In a phone interview with The Christian Post, IFA President Dave Kubal said that in light of how much distaste exists for Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton "we know that it is a strategy of the enemy to stir up as much hate as possible in this process."
Scripture commands Christians to intercede for their leaders whether they like them or not. In 1 Timothy 2:2, Paul instructs believers to pray "for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness." more >>
ANAHEIM, California — Esteemed evangelist Greg Laurie warned thousands of Christians and non-believers Friday night that one sin is all it takes to keep them out of Heaven and contended that religion is driving many people away from Jesus Christ.
Laurie, the senior pastor at Harvest Christian Fellowship church in Riverside, California, gave a 35-minute message to over 32,000 people gathered at Angel Stadium in Anaheim for SoCal Harvest 2016 and thousands more watching on webcast.
While the point of the 27th annual three-night worship event organized by Harvest Crusades is to encourage non-Christians and disenfranchised Christians to proclaim or re-proclaim their love for Christ, Laurie stressed that the Bible says the only way to Heaven and the Father is through Christ. more >>
A civil racketeering lawsuit that has dogged former Mars Hill Church Pastor Mark Driscoll since he was forced to resign from the now dissolved church in 2014, was dismissed by a U.S. District Court judge on Thursday.
"I am grateful to God for the dismissal of these false and malicious allegations," Driscoll, now senior pastor of Trinity Church in Scottsdale, Arizona, told The Christian Post on Friday. "I remain steadfast and committed to preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I am forever humbled and thankful for the prayers and tremendous support of family, friends, and fellow pastors."
The four plaintiffs named in the 42-page lawsuit against Driscoll didn't have the money to pursue the case and never served Driscoll or former chief elder Sutton Turner, who was also named as a defendant, with the necessary documents, according to The Seattle Times. As a result, the case was dismissed. more >>
Liberty University President Jerry Falwell Jr. is "under the dark spell of Donald Trump," according to a column published in the National Review.
Peter Wehner, senior fellow at the conservative Ethics and Public Policy Center, penned a recent column in objection to Falwell's endorsement of Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump.
"Falwell has fallen under the dark spell of Donald Trump. That is not a crime, but it is having a corrosive effect on his intellectual and moral judgment. He is saying witless and defamatory things," wrote Wehner. more >>
Pastor Greg Laurie of Harvest Christian Fellowship church in Riverside, California, is urging Christians to bring people who do not yet know Jesus Christ to SoCal Harvest 2016, which opens on Friday at Angel Stadium in Anaheim.
"The Objective of a Harvest is to bring people who do not yet know Jesus Christ," Laurie said in a Facebook post on Thursday.
"Go into your sphere of influence and invite and bring people with you," he added, noting that there are three operative words for such evangelistic Crusades — "PRAY ... INVITE ... BRING." more >>
