Saeed Abedini, the Iranian-American pastor who was imprisoned in Iran for his Christian faith, has said that the choices Americans have for president is a reflection of people's poor relationship with God.
"When I talked to people after the presidential debate, they told me it was like kids fighting and it was low and cheap talk," Abedini wrote in a Facebook post on Sunday, reflecting on the debate between Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump and his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton.
The pastor noted that in the Bible, "God gave a king to Israel according to their heart and walk with God." more >>
A woman who revealed to the Rev. Billy Graham that her past abortion is now causing her to feel deep guilt and sorrow every time she sees children has asked if those feelings will ever subside.
"Maybe some women can go through an abortion and never feel guilty, but I'm not one of them. I feel terrible over what I did, and every time I drive by a school playground I'm almost consumed with grief. Will I ever get over this?" the unnamed woman asked in a question-and-answer column published by the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association on Thursday.
Graham responded that while what she did "was wrong in God's eyes," she needed to know that God "has not rejected you or abandoned you." more >>
Over 700 female Christian leaders have banded together to condemn Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump's misogynistic behavior and his degrading acts toward women.
As Trump's character has come under fire in recent weeks after recordings were uncovered showing the billionaire real estate mogul making disgusting comments about how he treats women and after sexual assault allegations have been made against him, hundreds of female Christian pastors and lay leaders have signed a joint statement demanding that the Republican nominee show some remorse.
"As Christian women we are appalled by Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump's recorded remarks that disparage women and condone sexual assault," the statement, which was issued last week, states. "Such language cannot be dismissed as 'locker room talk.' Mr. Trump must offer public contrition that fully acknowledges the seriousness and depravity of his actions." more >>
Southern Baptist megachurch pastor Robert Jeffress has said that he disagrees with Christian author Max Lucado when it comes to Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, explaining that he wants to see the "meanest, toughest" option for fighting the Islamic State terror group and other threats.
Jeffress, who leads First Baptist Church in Dallas, Texas, said in an interview with NPR that while he "loves" and agrees on certain things with Lucado, he disagrees on what qualities are needed for president.
"Well, first of all, I see a lot of common ground with Max Lucado. I love Max Lucado. And, you know, I've disagreed with his point of view," Jeffress explained. more >>
Best-selling author and evangelical preacher Tony Campolo is defending the Red Letter Christians evangelical movement he helped found that gives the words of Jesus more authority than the rest of the Bible.
The movement takes its name from how some editions of the Bible put the words of Jesus in red lettering to distinguish them from the rest of the text.
In an interview with The Christian Post, Campolo explained that Red Letter Christians believe the "red letters are the most important part of the Scripture" because "Jesus raises the moral standard." more >>
Although more than 2,500 students have signed a petition against Liberty University President Jerry Falwell Jr.'s continued vocal support of scandal-ridden Donald Trump, a student leader says most of the school's students will still vote for the Republican presidential nominee.
"Contrary to what the media is reporting, the majority of students at Liberty University agree with President Falwell and respect his decision to support Donald Trump," Jack Heaphy, who is the university's student body president, said, according to TheBlaze. "They are not blindly following President Falwell, but rather have a shared understanding of the danger a Hillary Clinton presidency represents and what it could mean for the Christian freedoms we hold dearly."
But many students are not happy that the Virginia-based evangelical liberal arts college president continues to support the billionaire businessman despite a recently leaked video showing him making lewd comments about women in 2005 and allegations of sexual assault made against him by several other women. more >>
