NEW YORK — Influential evangelical leaders throughout the U.S. will fly to Washington, D.C. this weekend to join a crowd of as many as 1 million Christians to pray and worship together for the nation.
Inspired by Nick Hall, founder of PULSE, "Together 2016" is a prayer and evangelism movement to empower the church and awaken the culture to Jesus. Americans are being urged to unite on the National Mall, July 16, to offer prayer that God will change the hearts of individuals and thus change the nation.
"It's a gathering for all people to come together under the banner of Jesus. The only agenda is Jesus," Hall told The Christian Post. "It's the church from all backgrounds — Lutherans, Catholics, Pentecostals. It's going to be worship, it's going to be prayer, and it's going to be lifting up Jesus and praying that He changes our hearts individually. We're talking about a reset in our lives and ultimately a reset in this generation. We really believe that there's a heart issue and that God wants our heart." more >>
Dear Mr. Trump,
Doubtless you are aware that many in the nation's large Evangelical Christian community are, to varying degrees, ambivalent or uneasy about your candidacy for president. Millions of them are certain they don't want Mrs. Clinton in the oval office, but they are uncertain about whether or not they should vote for you, not vote in the presidential contest at all, or write in a protest candidate.
Mr. Trump, there are numerous things you could do and actions you could take that would go a long way toward making many of these American Evangelicals feel far more comfortable trusting you with the office of the presidency. more >>
When doctors told Jeremiah and Audrey Johnston they couldn't conceive, the couple held on to their faith and trusted that God would have the final say.
After several years of prayer and one cycle of in vitro fertilization, the Johnstons are now the parents of five children. Earlier this month, Audrey gave birth to triplet boys, and this year they also celebrated the 7th birthday of their daughter, Audrey, and 4th birthday of son, Justin.
The gripping apocalyptic adventure film about the rapture and tribulation "Vanished: Left Behind: Next Generation," will be in theaters nationwide for one night only coming this September.
Targeting a new generation of moviegoers, the film is inspired by The New York Times best-selling book series Left Behind by authors Tim LaHaye and Jerry B. Jenkins. The series is no stranger to the big screen and was made popular by actor Kirk Cameron 16 years ago and more recently by Nicholas Cage in 2014. However, "Vanished: Left Behind: Next Generation," seeks a new audience by telling the story from the perspective of young adults.
Piggybacking off of the dramatic action movies "Twilight" and "The Hunger Games," the new feature, which will be in theaters on Sept. 28, hopes to take its characters beyond their own fears and desires, opening them to the questions of purpose, and whether their lives and choices really matter. more >>
There are times in life when a Christian must decide between holding fast to the Gospel, or succumbing to the spirit of the age. And if you remain true to the Gospel, be assured that your message will offend some people no matter how humbly and graciously you invite others to take up their cross and follow Christ.
A case in point: the Justice Conference last month in Chicago.
This gathering is "an annual event created for Christ-followers to gather, engage with, and better understand how to address major justice issues." more >>
Outspoken Christian real estate entrepreneurs Jason and David Benham say last week's shooting deaths of two black men by police officers in Louisiana and Minnesota and the killing of five police officers in Dallas are major signs that America is entrenched in a godless "culture of death."
The twin brothers — who gained prominence among conservative Christians when HGTV dropped their reality TV show amid pressure from LGBT activist groups opposed to their biblical view of marriage — took to Facebook last Friday to issue their thoughts about the killing of Philando Castile and Alton Sterling by police officers in Minneapolis and Baton Rouge and the killing of five Dallas police officers last Thursday.
In a video posted to their Facebook page, the former minor league baseball players stressed that the acts of violence displayed last week are side effects caused by the "removal of God from every area of the nation." more >>
