The daughter of famed evangelist Billy Graham, Anne Graham Lotz, says that even though the United States is facing God's judgement, the country has not yet passed the "point of no return" and can still turn back to God in hopes of being spared the full wrath of His judgement.
The 68-year-old Lotz, who is the founder of AnGeL Ministries and author of the new book The Daniel Prayer: Prayer That Moves Heaven and Changes Nations, was a guest on the nationally syndicated radio talk show "Point of View" with Kerby Anderson last Thursday to discuss her book and the judgement that America is facing.
As Lotz has argued in the past that America is in the "last stage of this downward spiral into the abyss of God's judgement," she agreed with Anderson when he suggested that there seems to be more of a concentrated effort to rally people in prayer and asked if America seems to be "praying more as a nation." more >>
Christian apologist Ravi Zacharias has warned in an Independence Day reflection that America is suffering from a "deep crisis of the soul," facing the "death of morality" and sliding into a future with no truth or reason.
"Whatever happened to the American soul? We are truly at the cliff's precipitous edge and the fall could be long and deadly. Why? We have a deep crisis of the soul that is killing us morally and we have no recourse," Zacharias wrote in a blog post on his website.
"We are at war but not only with an enemy. We are at war within our own culture, and whether we will ever win over the enemy depends on whether we win this war within our own souls," he added, noting that the United States is battling not only enemies overseas, but is also battling for its own identity. more >>

Bassist Jason Weaver of the award-winning band Big Daddy Weave had both of his feet amputated after suffering from a life threatening infection last month, and now his brother and lead singer of the band, Mike Weaver, is sharing the band's reaction to the news and how they are keeping the faith as they gear up for the future.
"To say that we're not sort of shell-shocked, I think would be wrong," Weaver told The Christian Post in an exclusive interview. "But we also know where our hope is and our hope is not in a set of circumstances, our hope is in a person — it's Jesus Christ, He's our hope. The Spirit of God, we look to Him for leadership. How do we deal with this? Our peace and our rest comes from Him, but it's definitely been ... tumultuous is a word that comes to mind."
Although this has proven to be a very difficult time for the Weaver family. Mike tells CP that Jason has not lost his hope in Jesus. more >>
Academy-Award-winning actor and filmmaker Mel Gibson has teamed up with Lionsgate for an inspirational film about a World War II soldier, Desmond Doss, who proves that the only weapon needed on the battlefield is prayer.
"Hacksaw Ridge" is the extraordinary true story of WWII medic Desmond Doss, played by Andrew Garfield ("The Amazing Spider Man"), who in Okinawa during the bloodiest battle of WWII miraculously saves 75 men in a matter of hours without firing or carrying a gun.
Doss served as a Private First Class in the U.S. Army but refused to kill or carry a weapon into combat because of his personal beliefs as a Seventh-day Adventist. Consequently he thought it was fitting to become a medic during the war. more >>
