In an exclusive interview with The Christian Post, Pastor Paula White talks about Donald Trump's faith and why she supports him for president. She also responds directly to the many Christians who either don't support Trump or are still unsure of who to vote for this November.
James Dobson recently reported he had heard that Paula White led Donald Trump to Christ, and Trump is now a "baby Christian." CP asked White about that, as well as other questions about Trump's faith. White also responded to criticisms that she is a proponent of the prosperity gospel.
White, senior pastor at New Destiny Christian Center in Apopka, Florida, was one of Trump's early supporters. In September 2015, she was one of about 40 religious leaders who met with Trump for a private prayer service at Trump Tower in New York. Last month, she attended Trump's meeting with over 900 evangelical leaders and was appointed to Trump's Evangelical Advisory Board. more >>

SILVER SPRING, Maryland – New York Times bestselling author Eric Metaxas says that many Christians in the United States have adopted an "American version of Christianity" and lack a true understanding about what it means to be faithful to God's word under the threat of persecution.
Metaxas, the author of several books including the recent title If You Can Keep It: The Forgotten Promise of American Liberty, gave a one-hour keynote speech to kick off The Bridge, an annual 3-day conference focusing on the persecuted church hosted by collaboration of groups led by the persecution watchdog group International Christian Concern.
As Metaxas has authored biographies of historical, influential philanthropists like William Wilberforce and Dietrich Bonhoeffer, his address focused on how Bonhoeffer played an instrumental role in awakening the German church to stand up to the atrocities committed against the Jews by the Nazis and he compared some of the similarities between the German church during the Holocaust to today's church in America. more >>
Billy Graham's daughter, renowned evangelist and author Anne Graham Lotz, has announced the start of a Bible-based initiative on the subject of revival, and is calling on Christians to join her in listening to eight hours of the Bible in the first eight days of August.
"Do you long for revival? Not just a tent meeting. Not just a series of church meetings, but an outpouring of God's spirit where God's people wake up in their relationship with God. I do. In II Chronicles when King Josiah rediscovered the Word of God, he read it out loud to the people and they experienced revival," Lotz said in a Facebook post on Wednesday.
"In the book of Nehemiah, after God's people had been in captivity for 70 years, they came back to Jerusalem and Ezra, the Scribe, got up before them and he just read the Word of God, and they had revival," she added. more >>
