Where do we start?
The murder on live TV of two human beings whose lives mattered? Casual luncheon discussion about the cutting up and sale of the body parts of babies whose lives mattered not because of their achievements but because of their intrinsic worth? The slaughter of people in a Charleston church prayer meeting whose lives mattered?
Then there's another scale to weigh the present agony: Iran getting a nuclear bomb; the unspeakable atrocities of people believing they are acting under divine authority; a secularist rage to push free religious expression to the very edge of culture, and then eliminate it altogether; mayhem in the streets; hate-driven strife; the collapse of marriage, and with it the family, the fundamental institution for civilizing a society; and apostasy in many churches. more >>
The Deaf Bible Society has started a movement to bring the story of Jesus in sign language to the deaf community in the Middle East for the first time ever as a way to combat the Islamic State terrorist organization's efforts to recruit the overlooked deaf populations with promises of a "false hope."
As only 20 of the world's 400 sign languages have some form of Bible content available, there is not one sign language in the Middle East that has Bible content available to let those in the region who are deaf know that there is hope that can be found in the Savior Jesus Christ.
Deaf communities are often overlooked in the Middle East, they become susceptible to fall for the sense of empowerment promised to them by IS, a terrorist group that has become renowned for the lies it uses to recruit disenfranchised members of society. more >>
It's test time. I want to give you a quick, three-question quiz.
Question 1: A guy at the office fudges the numbers on his sales reports and his reimbursement forms. He's stealing from the company. Two coworkers know about it. One loves that he's found a way to make more money and stick it to "the man." The other believes his behavior is ethically wrong. So … which of these two coworkers will love the guy more?
Question 2: A lady in the neighborhood strips every night in a sleazy club down by the airport. Two neighbors know about it. One thinks it's great that she can make money off her body and give guys a good time while she's doing it. The other disapproves of her career choice. So … which of these two coworkers will love this lady more? more >>
Bishop T.D. Jakes, the visionary behind the behemoth of a conference that is MegaFest, was a not able to preach on its final day for a Sunday worship service due to an eye irritation that needed immediate medial attention.
Jakes, who was scheduled to preach at the American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas, for MegaFest's Sunday service, was predisposed and replaced by evangelist Joyce L. Rogers who gave the final sermon to close out this week's festivities.
The Potter's House Church head's absence was announced by the service's host, Cynthia James, who informed the thousands in attendance about his condition. more >>
A group of Christians protesting against abortion outside a Planned Parenthood clinic in Portland were attacked by a man who threw a white, powdery cleaning solution at them.
According to the Christian News Network, the man, who is purportedly not being punished or prosecuted for his attack, threw Comet cleaning solution at six Christian protesters earlier this month.
The incident occurred during a pro-life outreach event on Aug 12 that was part of a street preaching ministry designed to encourage and train Christians how to preach the Gospel in public. The event, associated with the Biblical Church Evangelism Conference, is hosted by Beaverton Grace Bible Church and organized by its pastor, Chuck O'Neal. more >>
If all goes well and he is able, former President Jimmy Carter will be teaching his Sunday school class at Maranatha Baptist Church in Plains, Georgia, this Sunday and several Sundays more over the next three months while he's being treated for brain cancer.
If you plan on sitting in on one of those classes, however, you might find the competition a little stiff as the church only seats 300 people and you are not allowed to make reservations.
"Because of the high volume of calls we have been experiencing as of late, we ask for your understanding and patience as we seek to return your call," a recording on the church's voicemail noted when The Christian Post reached out to find out more about the class on Friday morning. more >>
