Family Research Council Action and Concerned Women for America have embarked on a 20-state nationwide Values Bus Tour aimed at educating voters about the importance of the 2016 presidential election and the impact it will have on religious freedom, parental rights, national security, and the U.S. Supreme Court.
"If we, as values voters, do not stand up and exercise our freedoms now, we may lose them tomorrow," FRC President Tony Perkins said as the tour began last week in Omaha, Nebraska.
"We have political choices in this election that will either allow Americans to regain the freedoms that have eroded under the Obama administration or make it even more difficult for Americans to live their lives according to their beliefs. This is not a time to stand on the sidelines," he added. more >>
Many parents dread talking about evils like genocide with their children, but Russell Moore, president of the SBC's Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission, says it's a subject they must not avoid.
In a podcast posted on his website last week, the president of the Southern Baptist Convention's Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission, recounted how one of his sons asked him if the Holocaust really happened after watching The Boy in the Striped Pajamas, a film based on the World War II novel by Irish author John Boyne.
His son was so shaken he wanted to sleep in his parents bedroom that night and was even more disturbed to hear what happened in the Holocaust was much worse than what was depicted in the movie. more >>
Praying for God to soften the hearts of atheist friends is the most important thing Christian can do for non-believers, says famed evangelist the Rev. Billy Graham, who also encourages believers to be a "witness to Jesus' peace and joy."
In a question-and-answer column published Monday on the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association website, Graham was asked what Christians can do to encourage their atheist friends to seek salvation in Jesus Christ.
"My best friend and I enjoy each other's company, but I'm a Christian and he says he's an atheist. I've tried to argue with him, but he just laughs and says I ought to grow up and forget about God. How can I win him over?" the person asked. more >>
Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission President Russell Moore told The Christian Post in an interview that President Barack Obama is "very receptive" to ideas on prison reform that are being advanced by a coalition of conservative and liberal activists.
The leading ethicist for the Southern Baptist Convention attended a meeting last Thursday with President Obama, along with about a dozen others including Attorney General Loretta Lynch, Senior Advisor Valerie Jarrett, and leaders from both conservative and liberal groups.
"It was pretty evenly divided between people who would be more associated with the right and people who would be more associated with the left," said Moore. more >>

Evangelist Ray Comfort's "The Atheist Delusion" movie, which claims that it's able to "destroy atheism with one scientific question," is set to premiere at the Ark Encounter, a life-sized Noah's Ark theme park in Kentucky.
"From the start, we were concerned that people wouldn't take seriously a movie that 'destroys atheism with one scientific question.' But it does exactly that by scientifically confirming the existence of God. Having a respected, scientifically based organization like Answers in Genesis being willing to premiere it is such an honor," Comfort said in a statement shared with CP.
While Living Waters Publications, Comfort's ministry, has claimed that thousands have already seen the movie thanks to pre-release paid downloads, Oct. 22 at the Ark is set to be the official release date. more >>
