Some say that church is a good place to find a spouse, and thanks to a recent partnership between a megachurch and a well-known Christian dating website, that notion might increase in its appeal.
The new initiative, launched in late February, allows congregants of Dallas-based megachurch The Potter's House, the church of popular preacher Bishop T.D. Jakes, to connect with one another on dating website ChristianMingle using dedicated search capabilities, discounted membership fees and personalized offerings exclusive to members of the megachurch.
ChristianMingle provides partner churches with a virtual community where parishioners can connect with other members of their church as well as with the general ChristianMingle community of users. Member profile badges will identify a member's church affiliation and enable them to search for others in or outside their church. Members will also have access to the site's relationship experts. more >>

Veteran singer and actor Pat Boone has denounced a skit performed on "Saturday Night Live" that poked fun at the film "God's Not Dead 2," calling the sketch "sacrilege."
Last Saturday, "SNL" ran a mock movie trailer for a film titled "God is a Boob Man," that made fun of the real life evangelical film and its ideological underpinnings.
Evangelical Christians in Mexico are being targeted by local groups that represent a blend of Catholicism and other faith traditions, say advocates, who are calling on officials to protect the country's religious minority.
International Christian Concern's Advocacy Manager, Nate Lance, told Fox News that evangelicals, who are a minority group in Mexico, continue to be targeted for their beliefs and for refusing to convert to Roman Catholicism.
"They will try to force them to convert, and if they refuse, they are banned from their villages, unable to live with or see their families," Lance said. "When they refuse to recant their faith, they are expelled from the community." more >>
Popular Christian filmmakers Alex and Stephen Kendrick, "the Kendrick brothers" are calling on pastors across the country to lead their congregations in praying more fervently to bring about a revival and a great awakening in America.
"If you look at the history of the Church, the history of revival and the great awakenings, it always was connected to people unifying and praying for the Lord to work in that situation and that's what we want to happen in our generation," Stephen Kendrick says in "A Passion for Parayer" video posted to Fcebook last week. "We cannot walk in the fullness of the Holy Spirit, we cannot evangelize, we cannot walk in unity in the Body of Christ if we're not praying on a consistent basis."
Joining the Kendrick brothers in the plea for a greater emphasis on prayer in the Christian community is Pastor Tony Evans, head of Oak Cliff Bible Fellowship in Dallas, Texas. Evans' daughter, Priscilla, played a leading role in last year's blockuster hit "War Room," which is all about the power of prayer. more >>
Evangelical leaders are asking whether Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump forgot, or entirely doesn't know about Jesus Christ's call to "turn the other cheek" in the Bible, following Trump's declaration last week that his favorite Bible verse is "an eye for an eye."
"My guess would be it would never be a gamble to overestimate Donald Trump's knowledge of Scripture. My guess is that he either does not know about Jesus' admonition to turn the other cheek, he has forgotten it, or just impulsively quoted the first thing that came to mind, which was the 'eye for and eye' quote. Much of what Trump says seems to be impulsive and spur of the moment sort of stream of consciousness rhetoric," Dr. Richard Land, president of Southern Evangelical Seminary, told The Christian Post in an email on Monday.
