The blockbuster Disney classic, "Cinderella" repeats this advice throughout: "Have courage and be kind." Tragically the overwhelming majority of Christian leaders have not followed this biblical admonition regarding LGBT deceit and now the day of reckoning is at hand.
Kudos to those leaders who have demonstrated courage over the past decade but to those who have fallen short, may this commentary provide challenge and conviction. Homosexuality is labeled as "unnatural," "indecent," "impure," "shameful," "degrading," and a "perversion" (Rom.1:24-27) by a loving and holy God and if 2-3% practice this lifestyle, it is and always will be sinful behavior.
For the record, deception can be humorous, humane or harmful. Guess which one has been given a "full-court press" by Gay activists to dupe the masses in America? more >>

The dust is finally settling after vicious harassment and death threats besieged the Christian owners of Memories Pizza in Walkerton, Indiana. An onslaught of national media attention catapulted father and daughter O'Conner to the center of a national firefight over religious freedom. Forced to close their doors and go into hiding, Kevin O'Conner contemplated closing up shop permanently due to violent threats.
Thanks be to God, their circumstances changed when The Blaze launched an online fundraiser raising $842,387 from nearly 30,000 donors across the country. Not all professing Christians are happy about this financial blessing.
Some among the Religious Left took a bold stand for justice from their living room sofas to write mischaracterizing blogs about faithful Christians' like Kevin O'Conner and his young daughter Crystal for being uncompassionate, bigoted and unloving because of their convictions on sexuality and marriage. However, in a surprising turn of events it is the conservative Christian pizzeria owners left doing justice and showing mercy according to the Gospel. more >>
Texas Sen. Ted Cruz chose a conservative, evangelical Christian university as the setting for his announcement that he was running for president. This underscored his apparent strategic decision to focus relentlessly on the conservative, highly religious segment of his party, both in terms of attempting to become their candidate of preference, and also in terms of maximizing their turnout in the 2016 primary elections.
The Republican Party in general has a disproportionate percentage of conservative and highly religious Americans in its ranks, so Cruz's strategy would appear to make numerical sense -- as it would for other conservative politicians, like Mike Huckabee or Scott Walker, who may aim for the same target audience. On the other hand, potential candidates like Jeb Bush or Chris Christie would play more to Republican voters who are in the moderate and perhaps less religious space of their party. All of which raises the question: Exactly how big are these various segments of the Republican Party?
We can provide estimates by looking at the cross between ideology and religiosity among Republicans and Republican-leaning independents, based on interviews conducted with 17,845 Republicans as part of Gallup Daily tracking so far this year. more >>
The 147 Christians in Garrisa, Kenya who were killed on April 2, 2015 were not the first or the last Christians who were marked for death by Muslims. The Al Shabaab Somali Muslims continue to attack villages throughout Garrisa, as they and other groups have done for several years.
The Islamic cry, "Death to slaves of the Cross," can be heard and witnessed throughout the Middle East and Africa. Much of this persecution is a result of Obama Administration directives and funded by American tax dollars and debt. In light of this, it was not surprising that Barack Obama intentionally chose not to mention or pray for recently murdered Christians from his homeland during his April 7th "Easter Prayer Breakfast" remarks.
In light of such denial, I reached out to several missionaries asking if they would describe what it's like to be a Christian living in a non-western country. This is the first of several columns attempting to convey their experiences (most of whom have rejected anonymity) and lists specific actions American Christians can, and must, immediately take to support them. more >>
A document linked to LifeWay Christian Resources suggests that the popular bookstore chain has dropped more than 150 authors and resources from its inventory. However, a representative for the nonprofit says LifeWay did not release the list that was made available online this week.
"Although LifeWay Christian Resources does not carry titles by most of the authors included on a list recently posted on the Internet — and has never carried most of them — this list was not released by LifeWay," Marty King, director of communications for the company, told The Christian Post on Thursday.
The document, titled "List of authors removed from Lifeway" was made available for download Wednesday on camerondobbins.org. In a blog post first published Wednesday, April 8, site owner Cameron Dobbins, wrote, "LifeWay sent out a company email to all employees in regards to their decision and an acquaintance of mine who works for LifeWay sent me the list of banned resources/authors." more >>
