While promoting the release of his latest DVD for the film "God's Club," actor Stephen Baldwin shared his support for GOP front-runner presidential candidate Donald Trump, arguing that the businessman is what Christians in America need in a leader.
"I've said this about Donald Trump, in my two experiences with him doing 'Celebrity Apprentice,' I found him to be actually behind-the-scenes a pretty regular Joe guy. Down to earth, a father, a husband and a businessman," Baldwin told The Christian Post.
In the last two or three years, Baldwin, who is also a director, producer and author, has focused heavily on ministry, charitable good works and humanitarian works. According to his book, The Unusual Suspect, the famous Baldwin brother became a born-again Christian after the 9/11 attacks and has been doing ministry ever since. Admittedly not one to normally speak about politics, Baldwin maintained that he does, however, wholeheartedly endorse his former boss, Trump. more >>
Harvest America 2016 may draw up to 60,000 people between the main stage at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, and the thousands of simulcast locations Sunday evening, but the massive evangelism event's founder Greg Laurie says that he will focus on an individual come time to step into the pulpit and preach.
"When I speak, I'm not so much addressing a crowd, I think of an individual," Laurie told The Christian Post earlier this week. "It's hard to wrap your mind around a crowd of 30-, 40-, 50-, 60 thousand people — in fact you can't. So what I do is I think about that person that is cynical that didn't even want to come in the first place ... Though I'm speaking to a crowd in reality, I direct my remarks as though we were having a conversation — me and that person that's in attendance."
Laurie, Harvest America's host and main speaker as well as California-based Harvest Christian Fellowship senior pastor, intends to deliver a message that he hopes will rekindle the faith of those who already believe, as well as bring non-believers into a relationship with Christ. He shared in an interview with CP that he feels a great responsiblity when he preaches at the massive event because he knows some people worked very hard to bring their non-believing friends to the event in hopes that they would hear the Word and commit their life to Christ. more >>

Encouraging Americans to get out the vote this primary season, the creators of "God's Not Dead 2" have released a video clip urging the public to take a stand for Christian values and cast their ballots wisely during the presidential elections.
In the Facebook clip titled, "Before you vote watch this video," fans are given a glimpse into a scene from the film titled Pastor's Brunch. The caption reads: "These are the kinds of issues that are facing our country! We need strong Christian leadership now more than ever!"

Conservative Christians in America are going to be facing a "fundamental rethinking" about the government if the choice for president in November is between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, a Southern Baptist leader warned.
"At the very least this is going to require of conservative Christians in America a fundamental rethinking of what we believe about the purpose of government and the character of political leadership," said Albert Mohler, president of Southern Baptist Theological Seminary.
"We are going to have to be thinking through and praying through how Christian faithfulness, biblical fidelity, gospel faithfulness, can be channeled into very real but finite political choices that are going to be presented to the American people on the presidential ballot form this coming November," he added, according to Baptist News. more >>
