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 >>
WASHINGTON — Over 200 millennials participated in the Q Commons telecast Thursday night to discuss the touchiest of subjects among them: race relations and the presidential election.
In an age when tensions are running high, many are deeply cynical about what good yet another "conversation" will do. But such attitudes are not deterring the founder of Q Ideas and local pastors hosting their forums.
"I'm a cynic myself," said Dave Schmidgall, a staff pastor with National Community Church in the District of Columbia who facilitated the event, in an interview with The Christian Post. more >>
LGBT activists who cite Galatians 3:28 in an attempt to justify transgenderism are corrupting the scripture, says Southern Evangelical Seminary professor Nora Hale.
The verse reads: "There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus."
"Paul is teaching in Galatia and the Judizers say, 'You know, you need some law with this Gospel.' And Paul is saying, 'No, the law is not a Gospel at all. The Gospel is the Gospel and all of us — Jew, Gentile, male, female, all of us — are level at the foot of the Cross," said Hale, who then proceeded to reference retired Anglican Bishop N. T. Wright during her speech at the seminary's 23rd annual National Conference on Christian Apologetics at Calvary Church in Charlotte, North Carolina, on Friday. more >>
Jesus still appears to people in their dreams, even to those who reject the Gospel, according to Christian apologist Barry Leventhal.
Leventhal, professor of church missions and ministries and director of the graduate school of ministry program at Southern Evangelical Seminary, told those gathered at SES' 23rd annual National Conference on Christian apologetics in Charlotte, North Carolina, on Friday that Jesus even appeared to people during the Holocaust.
As an example, Leventhal shared the testimony of a Jewish man named Joseph who during the Holocaust was forced to work in a Nazi labor camp. more >>
Christian theologian Norman Geisler said on Friday at a major Christian apologetics conference that America has paid a heavy price for abandoning God, such as rising rates of teen suicide, divorce, violent crime, and abortion, but urged Americans to rediscover their Christian roots and get back in God's favor.
Geisler focused his speech at the Southern Evangelical Seminary's 23rd annual National Conference on Christian Apologetics in Charlotte on three main topics — how America was founded on faith in God, how it lost that faith in the public sphere, and how it can regain God's favor.
Geisler, who is a prominent evangelical apologist, said "there is nothing that I am more concerned about today than what is happening in our country, and as a result happening elsewhere around the world." more >>
If God is as loving as people say, why does He condemn people who don't keep His statutes? Why are nonbelievers banished to spend eternity in Hell? These questions are pondered by many, but Christian apologist Lee Strobel says God doesn't send people to Hell — they send themselves.
Strobel tackles these and other questions in detail in his recently updated New York Times best-seller The Case For Christ: A Journalist's Personal Investigation of the Evidence for Jesus.
"Jesus teaches more about Hell than anyone in the entire Bible," Strobel writes. "Doesn't that contradict His supposed gentle and compassionate character?" more >>
