Saddleback Church pastor and best-selling author Rick Warren is telling Christians that they should "personalize" scripture by inserting themselves into certain biblical passages.
In an entry found on Rick Warren's Daily Hope website published Sunday, Warren wrote a meditation centered on the Bible verse Philippians 1:6.
"And I am certain that God, who began the good work within you, will continue his work until it is finally finished on the day when Christ Jesus returns," reads the verse, as rendered by the New Living Translation, Second Edition. more >>
Former Republican presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson has warned Christians that they have a responsibility to vote based on biblical values come Election Day on November 8, arguing that religious freedom and traditional America are on the line.
"We are facing what may be the most important election of our lifetime, if not ever," Carson said in a Facebook video of the upcoming presidential elections, in which he has backed the Republican nominee Donald Trump.
"As Christians, the Bible calls us to be salt and light to influence our culture. That starts with the choices we make in the voting booth," he added. more >>
Contemporary Christian music's newest artist, Zach Williams, is sharing the freedom he's found in Jesus with his new smash hit single, "Chain Breaker." The former rock star walked away from a life of drugs and rock 'n' roll to follow God's plan for his life and to share his newfound hope with others.
Williams grew up in a Christian home where both his mother and father were heavily involved in church. But as a teenager he drifted away from the values his parents had instilled in him.
"Everything we did as a child revolved around church until my high school years. I knew at a young age I had an experience and an encounter with the Lord. I just never understood salvation. I always felt like the kid that every Sunday had to get in front of the church at the altar call and get resaved, it just never really clicked with me," Williams told The Christian Post. more >>
Best-selling Christian author and preacher Max Lucado was never consulted about being featured in a progressive Christian nonprofit's anti-Donald Trump ad campaign that launched last week and includes audio from his interview with National Public Radio earlier this year.
The Christian Post reported on Friday that the left-leaning Faith in Public Life Action Fund recently launched a $300,000 anti-Trump ad campaign that features four different video ads highlighting the Republican nominee's offensive comments about women.
As the ads attempt to target evangelical millennials and Catholic women, they will run from now until election night on a number of national and state news websites, including The Washington Post, The New York Times and USA Today. more >>
The Reverend Samuel Rodriguez had stated that Democratic Party nominee Hillary Clinton wants Hispanic Christians to go against their own religious beliefs in supporting her.
In a statement emailed to supporters on Monday morning, the president of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference said that Clinton wants Christians "'to Sacrifice Our Most Cherished Values."

Some Christians desire to pray more, but might be hesitant to do so because they simply don't know what to say. Not to worry, says the Rev. Billy Graham, just be open and personal with God. Believers can talk to Him even as they were little children.
In a recent post on his website on Saturday, the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, Graham urges readers to think back to when their children were small and first learning how to talk.
As parents, they weren't offended when their children made a mistake while trying to speak, or got their words confused, Graham explains. They were likely very pleased by their attempts to talk with them, perhaps rewarding their efforts and encouraging them to continue. more >>
