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."

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 >>
After Dr. James Dobson, founder of the Colorado-based Focus on the Family ministry, asserted that presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump recently became a born-again Christian, the billionaire's campaign manager, Paul Manafort, refused to address the claim on Sunday.
Speaking to Chuck Todd, host of NBC's "Meet the Press" on Sunday, Manafort declined discussing Dobson's claim but said he had never seen so much support from the evangelical community for one candidate in his 40 years of working in politics.
"I'm not gonna speak to Donald Trump and his embrace of religion. You have to talk to him about that," said Manafort, who was hired by Trump in late March to be the real estate mogul's convention manager. more >>
Young-Earth Creationist Ken Ham, who is getting ready for the opening of the Ark Encounter in Kentucky on July 7, has accused Christians who support the theory of evolution as being people who follow a "religion of death."
"Christians who accept millions of years are mixing the religion of death with the religion of life — death came after sin, Jesus conquered it. Evolution requires death over millions of years, death is a 'friend' that produces life and death ends it all," Ham wrote in a Facebook post over the weekend.
"The Bible describes death as an enemy that will one day be destroyed — through Christ's death and resurrection we are offered life with God. Creation is a religion of life — death is a result of sin, our Creator paid the penalty for sin and offers the free gift of salvation — it's all about life. Christianity vs. secularism is really a battle between the religion of life and the religion of death," he added. more >>
