Controversial televangelist Pat Robertson believes Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump needs to focus on the economy and stop his back-and-forth with the parents of a fallen Muslim-American soldier.

Pro-life evangelicals are better off voting for the Planned Parenthood-endorsed Hillary Clinton than voting for real estate mogul Donald Trump in the 2016 presidential election, prominent Christian author Rachel Held Evans suggests.
Evans, a progressive Christian columnist and author of books such as Faith Unraveled and A Year of Biblical Womanhood, who claims to be pro-life and proclaimed in 2014 that she was no longer fighting for a seat at the "evangelical table," took to her website on Tuesday to argue that Christians, even pro-life believers, would be doing themselves and their cause a disservice by voting for Trump over Clinton.
Despite the facts that Trump vows to appoint pro-life Supreme Court justices and Clinton opposes abortion limits up until the very end of the third trimester, Evans contends that Clinton's policies will help keep abortion rates at record lows, while Trump's policies will only help raise the abortion rate. more >>

A number of Catholic and evangelical humanitarian leaders met with Hillary Clinton's supporters and advisers in a series of "listening sessions" and addressed their concerns on global issues and the future of religious freedom for conservative Christian organizations.
TIME reports that several of Clinton's former State Department advisers organized closed-door meetings for about a dozen Catholic and evangelical leaders, including ones from the National Association of Evangelicals and the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, in Washington over the last two months.

The small number of differences within various ancient copies of the Holy Bible do not change the truth of the Gospel message, says Pastor John Piper.
In a recent podcast posted to Piper's website desiringgod.com, the theologian and author was asked about verses known to have been added to the Bible later on.
Pop star Gwen Stefani has been talking about her relationship with God for years, which makes it no surprise that in a recent Instagram post the singer gushed about God answering her prayer after meeting a young boy who said Stefani's music helped him overcome being bullied.
"About three years ago when things were hard in my life I prayed to God everyday that I could get a chance to use my gift that God gave me and make a difference in some way in this world — last night this little guy was the answer to my prayers," she wrote on instagram with the hashtags zero tolerance for bullies, one love, and this is what the truth feels like.
