We know what happened when Mr. Smith went to Washington. But what about when Mr. Moore went to Chicago?
There's a stereotype out there that evangelicals only care about abortion and "morality" issues like homosexuality and marriage. Lots of pundits describe us as monolithic in our approach to these issues.
That may have been true in the past, but no longer. To cite just one example, Daniel Burke of CNN has identified seven types of evangelicals in politics. They run the gamut from extremely conservative to extremely liberal. And these groups are often so focused on their pet agendas they rarely talk to each other, much less work together. more >>
The U.S. Supreme Court denied a hearing for pharmacists appealing a Washington State law mandating that they provide abortion-inducing drugs despite their religious objections.
A majority of the eight-member high court decided Tuesday morning to not hear an appeal in Stormans v. Wiesman, allowing a ruling from the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals to stand.
While the decision to reject a hearing for the Stormans case was given without comment, Justice Samuel Alito authored a dissent to the decision. more >>
Actress and TV host Candace Cameron Bure honored her 20-years of marriage to former NHL player Valeri Bure with an honest social media post about their highs and lows and the grace they received to persevere.
Bure recently took to Facebook with a picture of their wedding day and a lengthy caption about the reality of marriage and who they look to to help them along their way.
"Let's be real for a second. We are celebrating 20 years of marriage today. 22 years together as a couple. I couldn't be more proud to be here and love my man the way I do. But let me assure you it hasn't been all roses the whole journey," Bure wrote. "There have been several tough years, in a row, ups and downs, bad attitudes and bad decisions, but we've persevered. We rode them out. We loved each other through them." more >>
To insiders, the meeting earlier this week between Donald Trump and what is being called an "Evangelical Advisory Board" represented an extremely narrow view of the term evangelical.
To outsiders, the meeting gave a false perception of clarity and understanding of the belief system and political perspectives of evangelicals, a group with a strong potential to affect the outcome of the presidential election in November.
As one who grew up in an evangelical home, attends an evangelical church, and now serves as a dean of a school of theology in an evangelical institution of higher education, I have a helpful suggestion. Perhaps using quotation marks around the word evangelical throughout this election cycle would help dispel the myriad misunderstandings of what constitutes true evangelicalism. more >>
I give my full and complete endorsement to Jesus Christ. My 100% trust is in God alone, our Sovereign King.
I agree with the late Adrian Rogers, who said, "We dare not identify the Christian faith with the Democrat or Republican party. We need to be free to tell both parties to repent and get right with God." In fact, I would add what I shared on June 14 with the Southern Baptist Convention, "The church cannot call America to repent until the church repents."
The Tension Is Real more >>
I was among a group of hundreds of Christian leaders asked to attend a private event in New York City Tuesday billed as a "Conversation with Donald Trump." I'm glad I did.
While I maintain many of my original reservations, after Tuesday's meeting, and as I told CBN News in an interview immediately following the event, I can now count myself among other Christian leaders in attendance who have moved from the "Never Trump" camp, to the "Maybe Trump" category. more >>
