Evangelicals love Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump because they are in love with the world and current Church culture is to blame, according to a novel explanation from the Rev. Robert Cunningham.
"It is clear that evangelical support for Donald Trump serves as a humbling rebuke that we cannot ignore, but what is less clear is what needs rebuking. The easy answer is our doctrine and conviction, but the better answer is our loves," began Cunningham, who leads Tates Creek Presbyterian Church in Lexington, Kentucky, in the conclusion of a blog post on the phenomenon of Trump's political ascension last Thursday.
"Indeed, Donald Trump is a clear indication that the evangelical Church is ignoring the Apostle John's simple command, 'Do not love the world or anything in the world.' Evangelicals in our day are in love with the world and things of this world, and that is why evangelicals in our day are in love with Donald Trump," he ended. more >>
At a campaign rally for Sen. Ted Cruz in Utah Saturday, popular radio host Glenn Beck accused evangelical Christians who are supporting Republican frontrunner Donald Trump of "not listening to their God."
"Utah has an incredible opportunity. So many Christians have been standing up. But all throughout the South the evangelicals are not listening to their God. Let us raise a standard in Utah," Beck said in support of Trump's Republican rival.
Addressing Mormon voters directly, Beck then asked: "Where the hell are the priesthood holders? Where are you? Thank you. It's time to stand up. It's time to stand up. You know what time it is. The priesthood is supposed to rise up and restore the Constitution. Now is that time. Period." more >>

The Rev. Franklin Graham has responded to the terror attacks in Brussels on Tuesday by calling for the U.S. to temporary halt immigration to people from Muslim countries, warning that otherwise the terror seen in Europe is coming to America.
"Join me in praying for the victims and families of the Muslim terrorist attack in Belgium today. Islamists have told us we will see more of these attacks and we have to take their threats seriously," Graham wrote on Facebook Tuesday.
"I have long supported a temporary halt to immigration, especially for those coming from Muslim countries, until we have a vetting program that works and we can know who these people are. If we can't get an accurate background check, they don't come in. It's as simple as that," he added. more >>
Leading Southern Baptist ethicist Russell Moore is calling on Christians to stop "bashing" the millennial generation as lazy, entitled and self-obsessed, arguing that millennials are actually "far more committed" to sharing the Gospel with people outside of Christian subcultures.
Moore, who is the president of the Southern Baptist Convention's Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission, wrote an op-ed titled "Are Millennials Selfish and Entitled?" that was posted to his blog last week and to the Baptist Press Monday.
The piece argues that although the millennial generation gets a bad rap from older generations, millennials are not lazier or more selfish than previous generations. more >>
