Ken Ham, CEO and president of the Creation Museum, has announced that the grand opening of the Ark Encounter will take place on July 7, 2016, at Williamstown, Kentucky, and will initially be open for "40 days and 40 nights."
"We are so excited that the construction progress and schedule landed on this 7/7 date. Genesis 7:7 states that Noah and his family entered the Ark. So it's fitting we allow the public to enter the life-size Ark on 7/7," Ham revealed.
In anticipation of large crowds, the Noah's Ark project will operate for 40 days straight, before starting normal hours of operation on Aug. 15. more >>
A historically African-American denomination whose president recently took part in a summit on racial unity hopes the event will be a beginning to many conversations on reconciliation.
The National Baptist Convention, USA took part in a summit on racial reconciliation last week in Mississippi alongside the Southern Baptist Convention.
As America continues to grow more hostile toward public prayer and conservative religious viewpoints, younger generations of courageous Christians will be faced with the challenge of defying the norm of secular culture to defend prayer and biblical truth.
In his book No Fear: Real Stories of a Courageous New Generation Standing for Truth, Family Research Council President Tony Perkins highlights 11 instances when young men and women risked everything to defend biblical truth and their religious beliefs from intense societal, political, cultural and spiritual opposition.
Perkins hopes readers, especially younger Christians, will be inspired to live out their faith with the same courage displayed in the real-life stories exhibited in his book, No Fear, which was praised by leading evangelist Franklin Graham, who believes the book will "help raise up a new generation of world changers." more >>
Known to make light of controversial issues, comedian and talk show host Ellen Degeneres wasted no time serving up the jokes Tuesday on "The Ellen Show" when it came to the new Starbucks red cup that has critics of the coffee chain steaming.
The specialty coffee company ruffled feathers this month with the debut of its holiday cup design: a nondescript red cup adorned only with the Starbucks logo — a look that many Evangelicals feel does not acknowledge the Christmas season.
The cup made headlines when popular Facebook preacher and former TV and radio evangelist, Joshua Feuerstein, posted a Facebook video to his 1.8 million followers claiming that Starbucks was deliberately attacking Christianity and the birth of Jesus through its lack of Christmastime cup décor. more >>

WASHINGTON — Distinguished scholars from Baylor University on Tuesday decried the myth that religion is on the decline in America and argued that it's actually growing and is stronger than ever.
Professors from Baylor University's Institute for Religion Studies in Waco, Texas, participated in a panel discussion at the National Press Club focusing on the "secularization myth," where they lambasted the media's spin on various surveys which has led many to believe that irreligion is on the rise in the United States.
Even though surveys have found there to be a rise in individuals who don't identify with a particular religion or denomination ("nones") and a decline in church membership for many Mainline denominations, the panelists agreed that those results don't mean that religion is on its deathbed or that atheism is on the rise. more >>
