CHARLOTTE — Due to the evidence, a generation of skeptics are now open to believing in the resurrection, the foundational event for the Christian faith, Gary Habermas explained at the Southern Evangelical Seminary's 21st Annual National Conference on Christian Apologetics.
Critics have recently begun to acknowledge facts central to Jesus' resurrection, he claimed.
Habermas, distinguished research professor and chair of the Department of Philosophy and Theology at Liberty University and visiting professor at Southern Evangelical Seminary, is an expert on the resurrection of Jesus Christ. He has written 18 books, and over 100 book chapters and journal articles on the topic. His next book will be 3,000 pages compiling his life work. Half of the book will be new material that does not appear in any of his previous books, Habermas announced during his talk. more >>
Australian megachurch Hillsong will draw thousands to New York City's Madison Square Garden next week for its annual conference tour organized under the banner of "No Other Name."
The "No Other Name" theme, which is also the title of Hillsong Worship's latest album, takes into account what the megachurch considers its "collective mandate, calling and great honor." That mandate, attributed to "His Church on earth" and based on Acts 4:12 in the Bible, is to declare everywhere: "There is NO OTHER NAME whereby men and women find their salvation, sense of purpose and eternal homecoming."
The popular ministry, led by Pastors Brian and Bobbie Houston, will return to New York City for the second time since its premiere U.S. conference in 2013, when reportedly nearly 7,000 came together for the two-day meeting. more >>
In response to my October 3rd article, "Gordon College, Don't Sell Your Soul for Secular Accreditation," a representative of the school reached out to me with some very positive news, assuring me that the school had no intention of changing its policy on homosexual practice.
First, I was referred to a statement by Gordon College President Michael D. Lindsay, quoted in a September 20, 2014 interview with the (Gordon) Tartan school newspaper.
In the interview, President Lindsay stated that, " . . . I think it would be shortsighted for us as a community to expect, come February, the board is going to make some master pronouncement, and that will be the end-all-be-all. Based on my conversations, I think that the board is currently quite satisfied with our current policy around homosexual behavior." more >>
The 1973 Roe v Wade high court will forever be stained with the blood of children on its collective hands.
The liberal majority in the 2014 Roberts court will now be labeled with the "C" word—for being cowards. These justices upended American civilization while standing on the sidelines.
Millions of voters in five states were assaulted in the public square, disenfranchised by this court's decision to not overturn erroneous lower court rulings validating same sex "marriage." Like Saul during the stoning of Stephen, they became bystanders, nodding their assent as terrible violence was committed. more >>
Liberty University and the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association announced Monday that on-campus students as well as those working toward their degree online can enroll in evangelism courses that feature presentations by the Rev. Billy Graham, Franklim Graham, and LU alumnus William Graham.
Students in all majors can take the courses, which began this semester through the university's School of Religion.
Will Graham, who's a 1997 graduate from Liberty University, said in a statement shared with The Christian Post that the collaboration is part of his grandfather's dream "to not just preach the Gospel, but to equip others around the world in the work of the evangelist." more >>
The Human Rights Commission in Lexington, Kentucky has a chilling message for Christian business owners who refuse service to LGBT organizations: leave your religion at home.
"It would be safe to do so, yes," Executive Director Raymond Sexton told me. "Or in this case you can find yourself two years down the road and you're still involved in a legal battle because you did not do so."
On Tuesday, a Lexington Human Rights Commission hearing examiner issued a recommended ruling that the owner of a T-shirt company violated a local ordinance against sexual-orientation discrimination. You can read the ruling by clicking here. more >>
