Anne Graham Lotz, the daughter of famous evangelist Billy Graham, says she is ready to vote for Republican Presidential candidate Donald Trump at the November elections, expressing hope that he can change and become a man of God like King Nebuchadnezzar in the Bible.
"The Democratic Party has so come against God in some of their major issues, that I'm not sure I can vote for the Democratic platform. But whoever is on the Republican side, I will vote for and pray for whoever that is," Lotz said in an interview with Fox News, published on Monday.
When asked whether she can vote for Trump, who is likely to secure the nomination but has faced pushback from notable Evangelical Christians, such as Southern Baptist Convention leader Russell Moore, Lotz said the Bible is full of examples of kings who have changed their ways. more >>
The Evangelical Christian bakers who turned down an order for a pro-gay marriage cake in Belfast are back in court seeking to overturn a decision that found them guilty of sexual discrimination, arguing that they could not support what they believe is "sin."
"They could not in conscience provide a product with a message that was inconsistent with their deeply held religious beliefs in circumstances where the evidence was clear that they believed that to do so would be sinful," Barrister David Scoffield QC said, talking about Daniel and Amy McArthur of Ashers Baking Company.
Leading conservative activist and prominent Ted Cruz supporter Tony Perkins says social conservatives should be "open" to voting for presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump and argues that any third-party candidate would likely put a Democrat in the White House.
As #NeverTrump conservatives have started the hunt for a viable candidate to step in and launch a bid as a third-party alternative to Trump and likely Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, many believe the political climate is ripe with enough anti-Trump and anti-Hillary animus to make a third-party run viable.
But Perkins, president of the Washington D.C.-based social conservative organization Family Research Council, disagrees, noting that history has proven third-party runs simply do not work. more >>
North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory has filed a lawsuit against the federal government after the United States Department of Justice sent an ultimatum last week that attempted to coerce the state government into dropping its new and controversial transgender bathroom law.
On Monday, McCrory, a Republican, and North Carolina Department of Public Safety Secretary Frank Perry filed a declaratory judgement action, which asks federal courts to clarify whether the Obama administration's interpretation of Title VII and Title IX of U.S. Civil Rights Act of 1964 is consistent with federal law.
The filing of the lawsuit comes on the same day as the state's deadline to explain to the federal agency whether or not it plans to scrub its recently passed law that prohibits transgender individuals from using state-run bathrooms and changing areas designated for the opposite biological sex. more >>
Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump believes that leading Southern Baptist Convention ethicist Russell Moore is a "truly a terrible representative" of Evangelicalism.

"@drmoore Russell Moore is truly a terrible representative of Evangelicals and all of the good they stand for. A nasty guy with no heart!" Trump tweeted at 5:05 a.m. EST Monday morning. more >>
For many Christians the purpose of prayer is to commune with God and to seek answers. Some answers come right away, others with time. But when God shows prolonged silence, when there seems to be no answer from Him at all, is it a sign of His chastisement? Has the believer done something wrong?
In his new book Unanswered, a volume six years in the making that intends to shed light on hot-button topics within today's Church, apologist and New Testament scholar Jeremiah Johnston gets candid about he and his wife's personal test in trusting God through His silence.
"We always wanted children," Johnston wrote in Unanswered. "We never could have dreamed that two healthy people, who loved God with all of their hearts, would be unable to conceive a child." more >>
