The Rev. Franklin Graham has warned that the "blood of children" will be on President Barack Obama's hands if he does indeed decide to veto the defund Planned Parenthood bill that was passed by the U.S. House of Representatives on Friday.
"President Obama has said he will veto the bill — if he does, it will be at his own peril and the blood of those children who are butchered at Planned Parenthood will be on his hands," Graham warned in a Facebook post on Sunday.
The evangelical preacher said that the passing of HR 3134, which would strip Planned Parenthood of $500 million in taxpayer dollars for a period of at least one year, is a "great step." more >>
As secular culture continues to promote transgenderism, popularized by the transformation of Bruce Jenner into Caitlyn, a group of Christians counselors will be tackling transgender issues and how the church responds next month at the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky.
"We wanted to do this conference because we saw that the issue of transgender was one that was getting a great deal of attention in the culture, but not understood well from a Christian perspective," said Association of Certified Biblical Counselors Executive Director Heath Lambert to The Christian Post.
"We want to inform Christians about a biblical perspective on this matter so that we are most equipped to show care to people who will be damaged by the current approach to this issue in our culture." more >>

WASHINGTON — At a Religious Freedom Project summit Friday at the Catholic University of America, a Chinese evangelist told of how she was was forced to make Christmas tree lights and endured starvation, electrocution and beatings in Chinese prisons and "re-education" labor camps due to her refusal to renounce Christ.
Speaking at the conference organized by Baylor University, the largest Baptist university in the world, Chinese evangelist Sarah Liu, and Syrian Christian ministry leaders, Joseph and Hannah Sleman, gave their testimonies to the torture and persecution faced by Christians unwilling to compromise in two of the most hostile regions toward Christianity this world has to offer.
Liu, a born-again Christian who was baptized in 1991 in the dead of a winter night due to fear of a government crackdown, told of how she and ministry partners traveled through China's Hubei province, going village to village, to spread the word of Christ. more >>

As polling data suggests that Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump continues to attract the support of about a fifth of Evangelical voters, prominent Christian ethicist Russell Moore opined Thursday that Evangelicals and social conservatives who back the real estate mogul are defying their Christian morals.
In a Thursday op-ed for The New York Times, Moore, who is the president of the Southern Baptist Convention's Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission, argued that Trump's campaign rhetoric is nothing more than "authoritarian lines with no principles, just audacity," and points out that Trump's attitude towards women and immigrants stand directly against Christian values.
"Donald J. Trump stands astride the polls in the Republican presidential race, beating all comers in virtually every demographic of the primary electorate. Most illogical is his support from evangelicals and other social conservatives," Moore wrote. "To back Mr. Trump, these voters must repudiate everything they believe." more >>
