Lady Antebellum's Hillary Scott is climbing the charts with her new Christian album, Love Remains, but in a recent interview the singer revealed that she was first offered the smash hit "Jesus, Take the Wheel" made popular by fellow "American Idol" singer Carrie Underwood.
In an interview with Taste of Country, Scott said that before joining her platnuim selling recording trio, Lady Antbellium, she had a development deal with another record label and among the CDs stacked for her to go through was the Brett James, Hillary Lindsey and Gordie Sampson's co-written demo of "Jesus, Take the Wheel."
"It was one of my favorites, and then that was all right in the time she [Underwood] was on 'American Idol,'" Scott said. "She was a country artist on 'American Idol,' which was amazing, and that song really spoke to her. She goes on to take it and it's a huge hit and the message of the song is so beautiful." more >>
"Duck Dynasty" star Sadie Robertson has confirmed that she's dating Texas A&M quarterback Trevor Knight, and like the reality TV star, the athlete has a strong Christian faith that he unashamedly talks about.
Rumors of a romance between the quarterback and Robertson first started circulating when they were spotted out together at a Justin Bieber concert five months ago.
"We've been dating for three weeks, so it's super chill," the "Duck Dynasty" star told ET on Monday. Robertson said after the Bieber concert they didn't talk for a month. But when Knight finally called to find out why they hadn't spoken, they hit it off and decided to make it official. more >>
A secular foundation is demanding that the Department of Defense investigate several Christian military chaplains, saying they violated federal rules by praying publicly while in uniform at a July event promoting religious freedom, though religious freedom advocates say the charges have "no legal basis."
In a July 25 letter addressed to acting Defense Department Inspector General Glenn A. Fine, Military Religious Freedom Foundation president Mikey Weinstein contended that Maj. General Dondi Costin, who gave the benediction at the Chaplain Alliance for Religious Liberty's "Torchbearer Award" ceremony in Washington D.C. on July 12, "blatantly violated both Air Force and DOD regulations prohibiting the endorsement of a non-federal entity." Having seen pictures posted online, MRFF also complained about the appearance of Army chaplain Maj. John Scott, who gave the event's opening invocation, and Air Force Deputy Chief of Chaplains Brigadier General Steven A. Schiack, both of whom were also wearing military garb.
In an interview Wednesday with The Christian Post, Chaplain Alliance executive director Ron Crews said that "there is no legal basis for Mr. Weinstein's complaint. A military chaplain has every right to appear in uniform at an event to honor a member of Congress, not to mention a member of the House Armed Services Committee". more >>
There are three important questions to consider when determining whether or not a church is actually a cult, according to the Rev. Billy Graham.
Recently a person asked the famed evangelist his opinion on the possibility that a given house of worship that they were invited to by a friend was, in fact, a cult.
Saddleback Church pastor and best-selling author Rick Warren urges Christians to always keep in mind that their life on "Earth is just a temporary assignment," and to focus on the things that really matter.
Warren published a devotional Monday that focused on the Bible verse 2 Corinthians 4:18, as rendered by the Today's English Version.
With nothing but truly awful choices in this year's presidential election, what should Evangelical Christian voters do?
During the Republican nominating contests, we, the editors of The Christian Post, encouraged Evangelicals to back away from Donald Trump. It was the first time we had taken a position on a political candidate. Given Trump's claims that he speaks for and represents the interests of Evangelicals, we thought it was important to take a position during the primaries, given Trump's potentially fatal flaws.
Now that the Republican Party has chosen Trump as its nominee, we, like Evangelicals across the country, are split on whether to support Trump in the general election. more >>
